This is the solo lane in which most mages and several assassins reside, however, several AD casters and fighters are often played here at a competitive level. Most of these characters from here will be most effective during the mid game teamfights, which is often way before enemy carries have obtained their full build. Mid lane is also the easiest lane to gank and roam from, due to it being in the middle of the map and having easy access to both Top Lane and Bot Lane.
