Malzahar counter tips

Laning Against

Malzahar has a very safe laning phase with strong ability to push the wave. As Malzahar will want to primarily use his

MalzaharE

to clear the minions, don’t stand near your minions while the

MalzaharE

is active to deny Malzahar free poke.

Malzahar is a champ with low mobility who likes to push with little peel pre 6. You can punish this by allowing Malzahar to push the lane and freezing the wave near your tower forcing Malzahar to overextend for CS or waste mana trying to break the freeze.

Malzahar will look to push the wave with the combination of

MalzaharE
MalzaharW

in order to open the option to roam. Focus on killing the voidlings that spawn to significantly decrease Malzahar's pushing and roaming potential.

Strategy VS

Malzahar will be looking for a priority target (usually the Mid or ADC) to use his

MalzaharR

on. To negate the effect of the Ult, purchase a QSS (Quicksilver Sash) to remove the suppression.

Malzahar is locked in position why he channels his Ult. During the duration (2.5 seconds), you can punish the Malzahar and burst him down.

Malzahar has a tremendous ability to take down towers quickly as the voidlings can tank the tower shots so the minion wave doesn't have to. Always have someone match him so you do not give up towers for free.

Power Spikes

Malzahar's first power spike would be when he hits level 6 and gains access to his

MalzaharR

. Before this, he does not pose much threat and can be harassed out of lane.

Malzahar's ability to easily push the wave and roam comes from Lost Chapter. Before this, he will run low on mana and you can punish him by pushing him under tower or freezing the lane to deny CS.

With items like Rylai's Crystal Scepter that slows units by 20% for 1 second, Malzahar's lockdown potential significantly increases as he can get in range to Ult you. Avoid getting hit by his

MalzaharQ

or

MalzaharE
