Shadow Demon is one of the best mids in the game because of the insane power from Shadow Poison! With a couple small mistakes you can easily take a huge amount of nuke damage that will result in you dying. This is made more fun because Shadow Demon is really fun to play, and he ends up being all around one of my favorite mid heroes in the game, though he also happens to make a really strong support hero as well. Please excuse the rage. These games were frustrating to play :X
I KNOW I just put like 14 riki games up but this one was really fun to play and I bet you'll want to see it? I'm just guessing? Don't hate me if you're bored of riki. More variety coming soon :)

Riki, as you saw last time I played him, is a hard carry who ideally will go for a diffusal blade and then roam around ganking. We had some trouble this game because of burst damage. CAN I CARRY THIS ALL THE WAY???
I played a CM game with a couple friends yesterday and it turned into a Tavern Draft, where we only pick heroes from a specific Tavern. This one was our Dire Intelligence tavern. I played pretty crappy dazzle for the first 20 minutes, but after that point my gameplay turned around a lot. Enjoy the match, and sorry for lack of commentary!
