SKILL BUILD:

1: Q (just in case you get the oppurtunity to set up a gank or save yourself from one)
2: E (could possibly save your or a teammates life at this level)
3: W
4: W
5: W (congratulations, now start casting this on the BACK ROW creeps on EVERY SINGLE WAVE, as you will be 1 shotting them from now on)
6: R
7: W
8: Q
9: W (maxed out here)
10: Q
11: R
12: Q
13: Q (maxed out here)
14: E
15: E
16: R (maxed out here)
17: E
18: E (maxed out here)

***ALTERNATIVELY, if you feel you need the shield more than the increased snare time/damage you can
SWITCH the progression of Q and E ... this step will need your own discretion***

Early Game(1-5): Last shot as much as possible, but without putting yourself in too much danger (your attack range is only 350 sadly), use dark binding/tormented soil to setup some gank oppurtunities if you are with a lanemate, or in an attempt to harass the enemy champion/s.

Mid Game(5-11): Start using tormented soil on every single wave on the BACK ROW units, if you can manage to catch someone on it, try and bind them to it for a good harassment oppurtunity, continue to collaberate with your lanemate if you have one into getting ganks.

Mid-Late Game
(11-16): Pretty much the same routine here, continue setting up ganks where possible and keep your cash flow coming in as much as possible

Late Game(16+): This is where your hero shines and really starts becoming "The Iron Angel" at this point if executed correctly, you should be an EXTREMELY durable wall of crowd control.

Lanemates/Partners:

**It's preferable to solo on this build, but if stuck with a lanemate or playing with a friend, here's some things to consider**

People you want:
 Characters who can't / don't commonly farm backrow creeps and can put a hurt on anyone you snare
*Note: Clicking on a link will simply open a window to that hero*

Such as: Allistar, Tryndamere, Evelynn, Twitch, Blitzcrank, Kayle, NunuSinged, Ryze, Malphite

People you don't want:
 Basically the exact opposite, people that DO farm backrow creeps commonly or can't capatalize on your root

Such as: Veigar, Annie, Anivia, Zilean, Twisted Fate etc. etc. Basically everyone not on the first list almost :P

How to approach battles:

Sit in the middle of your team, behind possible tougher or equally tough tanks, and wait for initiation (or initiate with a dark binding, if you are confident in your ability to hit the target you intend to hit) throw down a tormented soil where you can find the biggest clump of heros (this forces them to either take it's damage or scatter which is time they aren't dishing out DPS, which is less damage to your team....even tormented soil can be used as support :3) and when you can make your way into the middle of 2-3 or more heroes use Soul Shackle to drop a 30% slow and damage leading to a potential stun (which will usually be the death of whomever it stuns) then throw out as many dark binding/tormented soils as you can after that
^^^
that is the general gameplan, it's not always going to be the same, but that's where player skill and ability to read what you need to do comes into play.

Final Note: Picking up the Golem Buff (blue runes) as much as possible during the game does greatly increase your direct killing efficiency because you will be sitting on A LOT more spare mana to throw spells to your heart's content. If you are with friends or decent people in your game, ask for help to take the golem down as early and as often as possible. 1.5% max mana per second is a HUGE help, and the 25% cooldown reduction can fillout any missing cooldown timer, if you don't wish to get a more permanent cooldown reduction via. glacial shroud or frozen heart
