The idea of a minion controlling champion has been passed around for a while and I would like to create a good kit for this suggested champion. I don't only want this champion to be original in kit but to also be viable in today's meta.
The Rebelious Minion
Passive: Viva La Revolucion!
Nearby ally minions will target any enemy that Yolanda attacks with her abilities or basic attacks. Whenever Yolanda kills an enemy minion, the minion revives and follows Yolanda, also attacking any enemies that Yolanda attacks. (Max minions under control = 6. Jungle monsters cannot be controlled by this passive.) The controlled minion will automatically die after 1 minute.
Q: Cavalry Cooldown: 14/12/10/9/8 seconds Mana cost: 55/65/75/80/85
Yolanda spawns 6 (3 melee minions and 3 caster minions) of her reinforcement minions in a circle, dealing 100/125/175/235/295 (+%70 AP) to all enemies caught in the radius. The minions have their default base health and scale the same as well. Melee minions deal 50 (+50% AD) physical damage while Caster minions deal 75 (+%50 AP) magic damage. The minions die after 10 seconds.
W: Incognito Cooldown: 24/22/20/18/16 seconds Mana cost: 50/55/60/65/70
Yolanda becomes disguised as an ally minion and gain a shield equal to the current minion wave health for 7 seconds. Yolanda gains all the stats of a melee minion. Yolanda can then reactivate the ability to stun all surrounding enemies for 0.75/1/1.25/1.5/2 seconds and dealing 70/95/110/130/150 (+45% AP) magic damage. Yolanda also gains a 4/5/6% movement speed buff
E: Rebel Yell Cooldown: 8/7/6/5/4 Mana cost: 40/40/40/40/40
Yolanda cries out a mighty war cry, dealing 40/50/60/85/100 (+%75) and slowing surrounding enemies by 10%. Controlled minions and nearby ally minions also perform Rebel yell with a slightly reduced radius, damage, and slow. The slow does stack upon itself, increasing with the number of yells hitting.
R: Super Promotion Cooldown: 110/90/75 Mana cost: 120/105/95
Yolanda increases the moral of all allies and controlled minions in an area, increasing allied champions' attack and movement speed. Allied/controlled minions in the area are promoted to super minions, fully healed and have their life timer reset to 1 minute.
This champion is meant to start as a bursty mage that would excel at pushing mid lane and zoning enemies. It would seem like a good idea take a point in Rebel Yell early to zone out the enemies but max Cavalry first. Take a point in Incognito at level 3, so that you can set up for when a teammate comes to gank the lane or when Yolanda roams to gank other lanes. Yolanda will be fairly mana reliant, but Rebel Yell will become easily spammable mid to late game, especially once you have mana /mana regen items. In team fights, her general thought process is to make sure she has some controlled minions to start with from farming and then to lead in with Incognito if she is not focused first. Run in and stun the enemy team, then lay down Cavalry onto as many enemies as possible, spamming Rebel Yell as much as possible. If your teammates and minions are grouped up together, lay down Super Promotion, to give your teammates the edge and increase the pressure from you minions.
