“Push malphite in early game as much as possible as it's hard for him to farm under turret early game, Malphite also just has no kill pressure on you early game and bad waveclear so this should be easy, it's hard to kill malphite until you get black cleaver unless he messes up really bad, Also remember you can flash his ultimate. Basically we outscale Malphite really hard because of our passive + black cleaver + conqueror, and you should be able to build up a nice CS lead in laning phase, also Cull can be nice in this matchup since we're trying our hardest to scale in this matchup.”
“Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport
Tips: Passive shield his Q poke. W his W-AA reset. Flashing his R is really easy if you are prepared for it. Punish him if he uses E on wave. The AS Slow from his E is really powerful.”
“Depending on what build the Malphite is going (Usually Comet AP) you would want to be utilizing bushes to avoid poke, and only poking when you see him use his (Q) to CS as this will slow you, sending the comet down and there is no way to react to this without (W) active and Mercury's Treads. Don't overextend past level 6 nor have your lane shoved in. This is just asking for you to be ganked and locked down by his knock-up burst from his (R), so it's much better to try to keep the lanes even or pushed up towards your tower. Hold onto your flash to avoid his (R) at the last sec takes practice, stasis is an alternative.
“A Shield, Poke and a Burst Combo once he hits Lv.6.
Try to parry his ult in All-ins.
If he rushes Bramble West against you, dont bother fighting him in lane you wont win the trades.
It's better to play this lane passively because you outscale him by the 20 minute mark if you're not behind.
He may not beat you but he will definitely beat your team in team-fights so stick with them if they keep dying.”
“Malphite does pretty good poke damage and will try to stop you from farming and basically just annoy you by spamming Q's on you. Malphite runs out of mana very fast though so you should be able to stay in lane longer than him. Abyssal Mask is a good purchase if the enemy jungler in not a big AD threat. Malphite shouldn't be able to ever kill you unless you make a big mistake or get ganked. The enemy jungler will be the main threat in this matchup so just watch out for ganks.”
“Malphite should go grasp against Riven because arcane comet can get blocked by Riven’s E, here you should get mercury boots instead of Ionian, and try to do extended trades vs him with conqueror.”
“Max W, because you give him a lot of damage and counter his R.
“Can be difficult matchup if you let him poke with Q, punish him for using it to cs. Try to get a level and health advantage to force him to do so.”
“Maybe one of the most annoying lanes you can face. He is weak in early levels so try to force him out early. If you try to trade with him after 3 he will just E and you probably can't finish one auto attack off before he runs out of range. He stacks armor too so your autoattacks won't do much damage to him. If he E's just jump away with Q so you wont take more damage from him. Beware at 6 since his ult is really strong cc that can enable the enemy jungler to get a free kill on you if you aren't careful.”
“Malphite is a melee tank with one poke ability - his Q. This will do strong poke and combined with his speed boost, is oppressive to play against. His ult is a problem as it cannot be dodged without flash and has strong base damage. It also makes him much stronger than you in teamfights. Build chemtank into stoneplate or randuins and look for picks.”
