ardizzle says “Has early lane control against you but is really bad at freezing a wave. Farm safely and focus down his voidlings. Always be aware of what minion his E is on. ”

Caganos says “If he builds the shitty item that does not even deserve to be named, you will have a lot of down time. You have to wait for his passive and the item to go down (wait after you dash to him) to W him. His ult can lock you down in teamfights however good positioning will make him either waste his ult on somebody else or just never use it. ”

Nooldles says “The lane vs Malzahar is quite boring (like all Malzahar lanes) but it does allow you to scale pretty nicely into your core spikes. HIs ultimate is great to take and as long as you farm relatively well, you outperform him in skirmish scenarios. Can take First strike against him as he never has kill threat onto you solo.”

ddieguito_es says “This is a scaling matchup. Just try to get his shield out often. Be careful if you waste too much mana early.”

blitza says “he will perma shove, always reset his shield cd (click on him to see), try to cancel his r with q”

Vixylafoen says “Pop his passive shield and then spam Qs on him. W his R. Super easy matchup”

Ulamog says “Conqueror Build; Second Wind + D Shield. You wanna go something like Quicksilver or Hexdrinker first item. He will auto push due to his kit so you just have to wait for him to overextend to all in him. SO don't get poked down before he is at your tower! NOTE that he has his passive shield so proc it first before you parry him. Post 6 you can parry his R, but you have to predict. If you go Quicksilver, this problem is solved.”
Irelius says “Как и другие немобильные сквишовые маги. Не забываем про кушак. И да, если вы кинете вторую ешку в момент того, как Мальза начнёт кидать ульт, то ешка отменит ему ульт. ”

Irelius says “Same as other immobile squishy mages. Dont forget the QSS. Important tip. You can disrupt his R with Eing him just before he starts to channel his ultimate. ”

Night Guy says “Now this is an interesting matchup because Malzahar as all of League's community know can be the most obnoxious thing to lane against as a melee champ. A little tip, try to E Q him to remove the shield and when you have your empowered Q pull him in and fight him.”

V1kt0r555 says “[Summoner Spell: Ignite or Teleport] [Starting Item: Doran's Shield] [Don't stay near your minions due to his E] [Avoid his Q silence] [Destroy his minions] [Beware of his R and gank setup]”
[Patch 12.19] My Mordekaiser's Build (Top/Jungle/Mid Matchups) by V1kt0r555 | Mordekaiser Player
RuchaczSzmat69 says “You counter his main ability (R) with your W. he cant do much against you, if he has his shield just Q him but if possible track his passive cd so if its like 3sec before his shield popping up, Q him with pot, so the pot will take off his shield and his passive goes to nothing. He has no damage to kill you, his poke is pretty annoying, quarantine from infected minions and you should be okay. ”
SanyGame says “This is a frasturating matchup against a good Malzahar. Firstly, you will definitely need a lot of sustain, so take Delivery Biscuits and Refillable Potion. Try to be as aggressive as possible before he reaches level 6 as his damage is very low, cooldown and mana cost are high. Don't overexetend as he can easily use his ult and you're dead. Barrier saved me from his ult so many times so that I would recommend picking it up (or take Ignite if you want to be aggressive as much as possible). Beware of jungle and do deep warding as he relies heavily on ganks. If his passive is active, always try to hit him with a wide [W] to stun him later.”
