“Malzahar is also an easy matchup for Irelia both pre and after level 6.
Irelia has an insane sustain in lane and Malzahar's poke is basically inexistent for her.
Also you can dash on his minions.
You can cancel his passive spellshield with your W.
If you hit your E on his spellshield you will still mark him.
You can stop his ultimate by yourself since your second E can be moved even when you are suppressed from Malzahar's R as long as you took his spellshield down before getting ulted.
[*11.14 UPDATE* You can no loger move your second E when stunned so we are no longer able to stop Malzahar's channaled Ultimate while ccd.]
“Runa Recomendada: Conquistador.
Malzahar ficará puxando lane, por isso evite ficar perto dos minions que estejam com pouca vida para que a habilidade E (Malefic Visions) não passe para você. Tire a passiva dele e fique atento ao tempo de retorno dela para que você possa combá-lo sem perder seu dano, o combo ideal é EW+AA+QE+AA. Fique atento ao nível 6 dele, caso não tenha feito bandana, possivelmente vai te ultar a qualquer momento e te matará junto com o jungler dele. Para negar essa estratégia, você pode rushar Bandana e ficar farmando, enquanto tenta matar ele nos níveis mais baixos sem medo de morrer por causa da ultimate ou para dar roaming depois de puxar a lane. Malzahar não tem muito dano e na maioria das vezes usam teleporte, com isso permite que você abuse nos níveis iniciais. Em teamfights, fique atento ao ultimate dele, caso você tenha bandana você pode agressiva contra ele, mas com cautela, ciente de que só pode usar a bandana uma vez para parar o CC que receber. Roaming deve ser feito apesar das circunstâncias, pois no final da partida ele fica muito forte devido os itens. Evite prolongar a partida pois ele ficará forte no final. O potencial de perigo de Malzahar é baixo visto que a Katarina só precisará de um item para pará-lo e é Bandana, Katarina possui alta mobilidade e muita facilidade em roamings pelo mapa, e graças ao reset as lutas sempre são favoráveis para a Katarina, ao contrário do Malzahar que precisa focar um. ”
“Incredibly annoying. Early levels will be easy but as once he gets 6 the lane is hell. He can shove easily and can kill you easily. The only way you kill this guy is by getting ahead early and snowballing or through ganks. auto or hook his shield early and look to E through and get him low. Look for hooks consistently but don't take to much damage in doing so. Only overextend to get his shield off when your jungler is coming and they have cc in their kit. Never try to E through him post 6 even if his shield is down because he will just R and kill you instantly. Buy QSS, hexdrinker is decent, but in teamfights and ganks the cc is what is going to kill you. ”
“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.”
“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. ”
“FREE ASS LANE, your q counters his passive and you're never in range to get ulted.”
“The Malz lane is pretty straight forward. You can try to poke him out after you get your mana item. Other than that just match his pushing power with yours. Farm his cs and wait till you can roam at 6. Be cautious in this lane for ganks and try not to blow ult/flash unnecessarily. Wont be able to kill unless you get good damage from him being too aggressive. If you can get jungle gank a gook way to get him without realizing his ur ult proccing his shield as ur charming.”
“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.”
“Quite easy matchup, if you waveclear his spawned minions, even though it's mostly farm lane, because once when he has all of his abilities, he will most likely push waves really fast and going close range against him isn't best, since he can use entire combo to neutralize you. Though you can poke him from range and try to deny some of his farm, while he shouldn't be really able to touch you, unless he uses his flash R during gank.”
“Corrupting potion is good against his passive shield. When he gets enough items / points in his abilities, all he does is shove the wave and roam to catch someone with his ult. You want to kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn since it will mess up his waveclear.
Have good vision around the river, so you don't get caught by his ult + jungler gank. You can usually tell when he's receiving a gank, just by watching how he moves in the lane. If he suddenly starts playing aggressive then it probably means there's someone waiting to gank you.
Get QSS after luden's echo to counter his ultimate. Remember he's immobile, so you can call your jungler for ganks and set him behind.
Teleport is also good vs malzahar since you will use up a lot of mana when fighting for lane prio.
You both scale well into lategame but imo Orianna has the edge with her zone potential, utility and damage. ”
