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

ChimpNA says “Extremely easy matchup throughout all stages of the game. Start doran's shield as he has a DoT effect. All in level 6.”

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.”
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.”

LunarVortex says “A single tick from your W is enough to remove his passive. Keep that in mind when trying to cc him. Try to match his push with your W so you don't have to lasthit under tower (you both suck at doing that early on). His voidlings can be annoying since they can block your Q, and you might not be able to spellshield his ult since you have to predict it and can't simply react to it. Consider buying a QSS is he keeps ulting you every fight.”

Ambitieux says “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.”

Dr Eggmund says “Space AIDS can be annoying but it comes down to your dodging ability. If you are able to dodge his abilities you will make Malzahar run out of mana and give you the upper hand in lane pressure. Try and get the experience advantage and shut him down with 6 advanatage. Don't push up in lane too farm after he gets 6 as he will bait you into his teammate and his ult will allow them to do the rest to you.”

RezoneVerified says “Easily proc his shield with missile spread. Space turrets out well so he cant easily AoE them. ”

Sanctuar says “Malzahar's passive gives him a fairly safe laning phase, combined with his constant pushing power due to his E. His voidlings deal more damage to targets affected by Malefic vision; bring them down by simply one-hitting them, so that Malzahar needs to spam more abilites which results in losing more mana in the process. The suppression of his ultimate can be cleansed by a QSS, but the damage continues. If you want to survive his damage, simply build a Mercury's to reduce the duration and damage of his abilities. Malzahar's damage comes from setting up his combo by hitting you with his E first - he has no access to burst damage.”
A Swamp Master's guide by Sanctuar | Kennen Player
Sylvan Lore says “The only reason this isn't a higher threat is that this champion has been pretty nerfed recently. Malzahar will shove out lane and avoid interaction with you and then just Ult you when his jungler or team is nearby. I usually get a QSS after my first item just because of how important it is to escape the cc of his ult. Orianna is pretty good at keep his passive shield down, but killing a Malzahar is really difficult in most cases. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build with a QSS”
[11.1] Command: Attack - One Trick Orianna Mid by Sylvan Lore | Orianna Player
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.”

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 PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
MarkFromSingedMains says “Voidlings usually die to your poison but his Q E and R are all extremely oppressive to Singed's playstyle. If you run up on him he'll Q or R you to stop you from flinging, if you're proxy his E is super strong at forcing you to delay longer before an execute (Which makes it even riskier to aim for an execute) as the DoT from his E lengthens the time you're "In combat" and so you have to wait 13 seconds after the last tick of the DoT to execute. His R completely stops you in teamfights. Cleanse might work out in this match up but is still risky. Your W can cancel is passive.”

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.”
