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

sweodigaming says “Mostly annoying. Can harass you very hard. He can zone the lane very good and has great sustain. You can't roam since you will lose a lot of farm. He does however have mana problems through out the game! I suggest taking TP in this lane.”

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.”

FalleN3 says “He will generally push the lane, HARD! This will make it so that you are going to be CS'ing under your tower for most of the laning phase. He has low mobility and is vulnerable to ganks so the fact that he will generally push the lane so hard will likely mean that he will over-extend quiet a bit. Use this to your advantage and call for some jungle help. His passive can be annoying as it makes him immune to CC (which includes your stun) so make sure his passive is down before attempting to all-in him. After level 6 you both can burst each other down so it would be wise to be the one to make the first move! TIP: Cleanse will not remove Malzahar's Ultimate from you because it is a suppression.”

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. ”
Yeager's Master Twisted Fate Guide by Yeager | Twisted Fate Player
Yeager says “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. ”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
FalleN3 says “He will push the lane extremely hard which is going to make it very difficult for you to roam. His passive is a problem for you so you need to remove it from him. His voidlings along with the rest of his kit and ultimate will make for an easy kill for him on you. Call for jungler help and try to punish him for any mistakes he makes. Take Teleport for this lane and remind your bot lane to keep a deep ward for you. Cleanse could be an option either, depending on your confidence. Mid game is usually where the problem lies for me against this champion.”
Fizz Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Fizz by FalleN3 | Fizz Player
Scyrine says “Another champion a lot of people have trouble with. always try to proc his shield off and look for a combo. Just never play against him under his turret, as he'll just R you. get rid of his passive and full engage. ”
SCYRINE'S OTP GUIDE TO CARRYING WITH AKALI by Scyrine | Akali Player
crabbix says “FREE ASS LANE, your q counters his passive and you're never in range to get ulted.”
SkellyBirb says “Malzahar is hard to deal with. You can heal up from his poke with shrines, but you may struggle to burst him and you'll have to poke him down and keep his shield down if you want to all in. Once he hits 6, you'll need to play very carefully when his ultimate is up.”

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
qasddsa says “In lane, he'll pretty much just auto push because of his abilities. He won't be able to pressure you much unless you deliberately get hit by his abilities by standing near minions. Later on, you'll need to buy a QSS because of his Ultimate being able to suppress you. You could also be cheeky and try to buffer your R before he ults you to reduce the damage you take.”
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.”

Phrxshn says “Save Mega Adhesive for Malzahar's Void Shift(Passive) which will disable his Crowd Control Immunity. Dodge his Call of the Void(Q) by avoiding his Portals and Laser to prevent damage or silence. Kite his minions with Poison Trail. Avoid going near targets afflicted with Malefic Vision(E). Save fling for his Nether Grasp(R). (Fling can override Nether Grasp if he has no passive and if Singed is in close range) (Mega Adhesive disables Void Shift) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Singed) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Banshee's Veil, Hextech Protobelt)”
Phrxshn says “Save Jaws of the Beast or Primal Howl for Malzahar's Void Shift(Passive) which will disable his Crowd Control Immunity. Dodge his Call of the Void(Q) by avoiding his Portals and Laser to prevent damage or silence. Kite his minions or build Tiamat to kill them. Avoid going near targets afflicted with Malefic Vision(E). Save fling for his Nether Grasp(R). (Primal Howl and Infinite Duress can override Nether Grasp if he has no passive and if Warwick is in close range) (Any attack disables Void Shift) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Warwick) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick) (Recommended Items: Wit's End, Bilgewater's Cutlass)”
Kokonev3inLOL says “This champion is a minor counter to you since you can just Q-spam against him. ”

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Malzahar isn't a toplane pick, he is quite inmobile and he some mana issues but if you get to play against a Malzahar, just don't trade at all against him, look to farm safely and dodge his Q, you can also stack his Void Swarm. Because he will always try to poke his laner, the wave will always be on your side so whenever your farming under torret, look to farm the melee minions with Q and then farm the range ones with E. The only way out of his R is qith QSS, Mikael's Crucible even though it seems like the perfect item to counter him, it doesn't remove suppresions, same with Cleanse, thats why SpellBook is sort of useless, Tenacity also doesn't reduce the duration of the suppresion, the only way to beat his R is either outtanking it and then run him down or buy QSS eventually. I recommend in case you want to build QSS, build only the Quicksilver Sash after Trinity Force + Boots and then build the Mercurial Scimitar as a last item, never buy it before Trinity Force since it will delay your powerspyke by a lot. This is a really hard matchup since he even has a Spellshield that can stop your wither, look to autoattack him or use E and then use Wither. Later on to the game its a really skill matchup but i recommend to teamfight, usually he can't really use his R properly and if he does, just engage or ask your team to hard engage on him. Remember you can stack his Void Swarms with Q.”

Phrxshn says “Save Pillar of Ice for Malzahar's Void Shift(Passive) which will disable his Crowd Control Immunity. Dodge his Call of the Void(Q) by avoiding his Portals and Laser to prevent damage or silence. Kite his minions. Avoid going near targets afflicted with Malefic Vision(E). Save Pillar of Ice for his Nether Grasp(R). (Pillar of Ice can override Nether Grasp if he has no passive and if Trundle is in close range) (Any offensive spells disables Void Shift) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Trundle) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Recommended Items: Spirit Visage, Adaptive Helm)”
Phrxshn says “Save Offensive Abilities for Malzahar's Void Shift(Passive) which will disable his Crowd Control Immunity. Dodge his Call of the Void(Q) by avoiding his Portals and Laser to prevent damage or silence. Kite his minions or use Ground Slam to kill them. Avoid going near targets afflicted with Malefic Vision(E). Save fling for his Nether Grasp(R). (Unstoppable Force stops Nether Grasp) (Any attack disables Void Shift) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Malphite) (Recommended Items: Abyssal Mask)”
Phrxshn says “Save Infected Cleaver for Malzahar's Void Shift(Passive) which will disable his Crowd Control Immunity. Dodge his Call of the Void(Q) by avoiding his Portals and Laser to prevent damage or silence. Kite his minions with Burning Agony. Avoid going near targets afflicted with Malefic Vision(E).(Sustained 1v1 Trades: Dr.Mundo) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Recommended Items: Adaptive Helm or Spirit Visage)”
