Tips Against Malzahar in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Katawina52 says “Pre 6 it's really easy to kill and have prio/pressure in lane. All in him when he uses E on minion or you could just all in when you're healthy enough. Once he has Lost Chapter it's more annoying because he can perma push the wave. Pre 6 you should just look for trades all the time becasue you can't lose them, but once he gets 6 and lost chapter you can never walk up and you have to accept his push and just push after. Careful for his silence even after he uses it it's still active for a second so you can still get hit by it. I dont like to buy qss because it hinders your dmg too much unless you're snowballing then you should go for a qss else just position really well and dont go in too early and have patience(which you should always do once he has 6)”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Very easy lane, it is legit impossible to die to him 1v1 pre 6 and he just feeds you gold with his minions. Dash to dodge his Q and kill his minions as soon as he casts them. Only reason he is not a 1 is bc he forces you to build QSS or everytime he ults you when his jungler is there you die. Get QSS after tier 2 boots.”

7daysko says “Anivia's auto attack range makes it easy to ruin his passive, however he could still out-trade you if you use both Q and R before he silences/supresses you. Note that your wall is also capable of wasting his passive, in which case he will walk right through it instead of being blocked.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Was pretty hard for the reworked Leblanc but since her damage in now instant, you won't have to take heavy trades from Malzahar. I'd recommend building a QSS if you get focused hard during teamfights and you're not able to one shot him before you get your full combo off.”

Yeager says “Your red card will oneshot all his voidlings. You have stronger waveclear and he can't do anything until lvl 6. In this matchup you want a early quicksilver sash so he can't set you up for ganks. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting Potion and Minion Dematerializer due to his heavy push power. Focus on pushing as heavy as you can early but be careful of ganks. Focus on getting a kill early on if you can until level 6. Post 6 he can setup ganks easily for his jungler so just roam and get stuff somewhere else after pushing. Don't neglect your tower because his push power is insane. Try to get your jungler to gank him before 6 because that's where Malz is really bad. Post 6 try to stop his ult on your teammates with your W if you can and if he does not have his passive up. If you struggle get some MR by getting either Mercs or Banshees.”

crabbix says “FREE ASS LANE, your q counters his passive and you're never in range to get ulted.”
Polarshift says “Annoying to play against. He does a lot of damage if he can get his resets on you and he has a free spellshield. Cleanse also doesn't remove supression, so that makes you an easy target if you don't buy QSS; which will set you behind 1300 gold. The good part is though, that your waveclear is better and that you can kill his voidlings and potentially pop his shield with E+Q.”

iZianni says “You can easily break his spell shield, you always have range advantage. You both perma farm, you have more impact in team fights. You have solo kill pressure in this lane. Build QSS if you're being flash ulted.”
Challenger Lux Guide by iZianni | Lux Player
Hienaa says “A bit like heimer but easier to play against because you one shot his W with E, but he just perma shoves with E + W, making it hard to roam and having low kill pressure cuz of his R”

Tips Against Malzahar in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Sovereign Kitten says “The second he spawns his voidlings, kill them as they grant extra gold and line him up for tremendous damage through utilizing his (E) and his (R) CC, however, raising your Magic Resistance levels a little will prevent a sure death. Stay away from your purple glowing minions or it will bounce to you, making you the prioritized target for his voidlings, it only takes one auto to kill them. You should not use your (Q) to poke him, while his passive shield is up, attack him with your (E) to take it down before attempting to use (R) aswell. It's okay to take QSS to deal with being his priority target for utilizing (R).”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “You win early game but still be careful not to fight for too long when he has his E on you and 2-3 voidlinks around as well. If they have another AP champ in their team, getting hexdrinker before QSS might be a better idea.”

TwistedDemon says “This should be an easy lane for you. At lvl 6, he won't kill you by himself (unless you play poorly), but it brings a huge pressure considering his jungler can come at any time and kill you.”

Vandenelis says “you can break his spell shield with the spikes of your e, you can also cancel his ult by using q just before he ults you, you can also cancel his ult if he ults your teammate with w”
