Strategy

Icarus Dive, Sun Ray while moving and Supernova destroy trees.

Make sure to land most of the Fire Spirit and get extra right-clicks in or deny a creep here and there.

You can attack once during Icarus Dive.

Fire Spirits provide short lasting vision so you can scout pillars for wards or Roshan pit.

You can use Sun Ray to escape over cliffs and pillars.

Supernova always turns night into day which can be great against Night Stalker for example.

Your allies can deny you in Supernova when one hit is left.

Avoid placing Supernova close to opponents' counters. Use terrain features to allow Supernova to go off.

Phoenix is great at defending towers with his long range damaging spells and escape.

When not much is happening, push out the sidelines with Fire Spirits and Sun Ray without even showing yourself.

With Aghanim's Shard, use Sun Ray before Supernova as it will persist and will be refreshed upon explosion.

With Aghanims Shard, use Sun Ray during Supernova on enemy heroes hitting your egg to have more chances of survival with the miss chance.

Counter Strategy

Look to go on Phoenix when Icarus dive was used. It has long cooldown.

Fire Spirits are Phoenix's main laning spell - Look to dodge them by moving chaotically.

Phoenix's Sun Ray does a lot of damage against high HP heroes. Run away from it or make a sharp turn.

Against Phoenix's Supernova you need to decide very quickly if you want to fight or run away.

Avoid fighting in choke spots and clumping up against Supernova or Sun Ray.

Spell immunity and magic resistance items are great against Phoenix's magical damage.

Attack speed items allow you to destroy the Supernova faster.

Sun Ray

Sun Ray does more damage/heal to targets near the end of the beam. Beam intensity starts increasing at half the beam length, up to 150% of base damage/heal at 1200 range. Increasing Sun Ray length to beyond range will result in more than % damage and healing.

        Lore

        Alone across an untouched darkness gleamed the Keeper's first sun, a singular point of conscious light fated to spread warmth into the empty void. Through aeons beyond count, this blinding beacon set to coalescing its incalculable energy before bursting forth the cataclysmic flare of supernova. From this inferno raced new beacons, star progeny identical to its parent, who journeyed an unlit ocean and settled in constellatory array. In time, they too would be made to propagate through supernova flame. So would this dazzling cycle of birth and rebirth repeat until all skies hewn of Titan toil deigned to twinkle and shine. By this ageless crucible the star that mortals would come to call Phoenix collapsed into being, and like its ancestors was thrust into an endless cosmos to find a place among its stellar brethren. Yet curiosity toward that which the dimming elders comfort in the darkness consumed the fledgling, and so over long cycles it inquired and studied. It learned that among worlds both whole and broken would soon stir a nexus of remarkable variety locked in an enduring conflict of cosmic consequence, a plane which would find itself in need of more influence than a dying sun's distant rays could provide. Thus this infant son of suns took terrestrial form, eagerly travelling to shine its warmth upon those who may need it most, and perhaps seize upon its solar destiny.
