So I've been playing a lot of lol recently and am kind of addicted to mid assassins like Zed and Talon. So, I thought, what about mid assassins in smite?
So I've come up with a basic criteria for mid lane assassins.
They must have at least:
1) decent wave clear
2) good poke.
3) strong- burst.
4) decent+ escapability.

Based off this criteria I've so far come up with 4 assassins that are good in the mid lane.

Freya:
An obvious choice, seeing as she is also listed as a mage, but I'll always consider her an assassin. She's probably one of the strongest mid assassin choices. Here's the specs:
1) Strong wave clear.
2) Good+ poke.
3) Strong burst.
4) Decent+ escapability.
So she is an excellent choice.

Loki:
I know, that's another assassin already played in the mid lane, but it's easier to start off with the ones already tested.
1) Good- wave clear.
2) Good+ poke.
3) Strong+ burst.
4) Strong- escapability.
So he's a good choice.
(Note: I gave him good poke instead of strong because of his need to use his main escape ability to execute a full poke.)

Thanatos:
Now it gets to the ones that haven't already been played in the mid lane. I thought thanatos would be good because of his low mana usage and high nuke capability.
1) Good- wave clear.
2) Strong poke.
3) Strong burst.
4) Good+ escapability.
So he is also a strong choice when you factor in his ability to stay in lane forever with his low mana usage and lifesteal on his 1.

Bastet:
Bastet may seem a weird choice, but trust me on this, she can go pretty ham on a lot of other mid laners. When you also add on her very strong push with her kitty katz of doom she is quite strong.
1) Good wave clear.
2) Strong poke.
3) Strong- to strong burst.
4) Strong- escapability.
So she is also a very strong choice.
(Note: the reason why I gave her more escapability than thana with his wings of death is because no one ever remembers about where she leapt from, so you can just fly back and walk happily away.)

If anyone else could help me out with testing that would be great, especially since I'm going on a 3 day trip sunday. Thanks!

I feel like that could work, but his wave clear and escapability would suck pretty hard. His poke could be good if you poke with 3 basic basic walk away, but it puts you in a lot of risk. But damn that burst tho. I'll definitely try it.

get a mage to waste his abilities on the minion (e.g. Poseidon's Whirlpool) and then attack him

As Ne Zha start with Death's Toll and Hand of the Gods, with Universe Ring Toss/ immortal spirit, you have great clear, sustain and damage. If you manage to use the Universe Ring Toss right(make it bounce at a minion and then at the god) and do the Armillary Sash + Flaming Spear AA combo with perfection, your poke will be incredible strong, and your combo at level 5, with Wind Fire Wheels... it's so strong. Of course, it is a high risk/high reward, but it's so much fun and can snowball you a hell lot.

still like I said if the mage doesn't use an abilitie to clear you can better watch out otherwise your dead.

If you play Loki in the mid-lane you are a terrible person with a special seat in Hell reserved specifically for you.
