Keep your distance. You have twice the ability range. Just keep poking him and be aware of his roams. Buy Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant to further force him out of the game by nullifying his attempted roams. Wouldn't be surprised if you make him rage quit.

LANE GUIDE

Refer to my match-ups page to ensure you are prepared for every mid laner.

Notes: you have the most ranged abilities next to Oriana. Use your range and damage to fully utilize ziggs and win your lane. Poke, poke, poke. Forcing your lane opponent to back means you can slowly poke down their tower. You don't have high mobility so remember to use Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge .you can throw it down to disengage a fight and force enemies back. 

Early Game: you don't have anything special early on except range. Use auto attacks and Bouncing BombBouncing Bomb to poke opponents and clear waves. Use Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield in front of your tower to kill incoming minions so opponents don't have a chance to poke you under tower or get damage onto it. Play safe, farm up and wait for ganks.   

First Dragon: help your team by poking down enemies or preventing escapes by throwing down Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield . You can use Mega Inferno BombMega Inferno Bomb then throw in Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge if the enemy starts dragon first. This will allow your team to burst them down since they've just taken a lot of damage and been thrown away from dragon. 

Laning Phase: If you are struggling in lane don't try to roam. The enemy will read you like a book and cut you off or to will lose tower which means your team loses a Frontline safety point. You are the most important tower to defend. Farm under tower and call for ganks. 

Mid Game: depending on how your early game went you might have a few kills or assists. If you are confident in your lane then buy Ionian Boots of LucidityIonian Boots of Lucidity and Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant to roam and help your allies lanes. You should be dealing decent damage by now. Remember to keep your distance and don't get caught out of position. 

Late Game: you've got 3 or 4 items now. You are dealing loads of damage and should be able to burst down enemies with your teammates in a few seconds. Keep your distance. Poke and support you teammates with high damage output. You're a support mage for reason.

Wild Rift Glossary

A few league terms explained:

Item Synergy: how well an item works with your champion to maximize damage, ability power and roam potential. 

Champion synergy: how well champions complement each other's abilities. Example Malphite and Yasuo. Ashe and Braum or Lulu and Jinx. 

Obj: objectives AKA neutral objectives such as Dragons, rift herald or Baron Nasher

Gank: when you or one of your teammates goes to a lane and surprise engages the enemy using cc or pure attack damage to kill the enemy with your teammates. You can also let one of your teammates bait an enemy into following them then surprising them from a bush to kill them. 

Roam potential: how quickly you can move across the map to a specific area or lane. 

Map control: the ability to control fight outbreaks or enemy roams. Example: stopping the mid laner or jungler from roaming to your dragon laners to group attack them. 

Roaming: leaving your lane or jungle to team fight other lanes. Example: yasuo leaves mid and roams to baron to group on enemy baron laner to kill them. 

CC: Crowd control - the ability to stun or knock up multiple enemies. Example CycloneCyclone , Glacial FissureGlacial Fissure , Grand EntranceGrand Entrance or Light BindingLight Binding  

Remember more cc = more GG
