He is very under-rated. Just raise your SafeGuard/Iron Will and farm.
Panth will not stun/HSS you. That'll cost him 100 mana, which he can't afford to waste. E is stronger than Q, but it's harder to hit a full E. Also leveling up E means it'll cost more mana. Q is more spamable and not dodgable (unless you're fizz or something). Unless you start with W, E will not hit a lee sin for 100%.
You can trade with his passive, just don't bother auto attacking unless you can auto attack him a lot and he's low on mana. Q and Q and E still hurt him. Your energy doesn't run out, his mana does. You have lifesteal, he doesn't.

Nothing wrong with his scalings, only his E is avoidable which is a problem and items.
