Penguto says “Tanky, root, can dash onto you, and pokes you with small trees.”
Gokinaf says “Support, tank and poke, try to not get their skills, after 1-st item can be realy annoying”

EzVeryReal says “This annoying tree deals a ton of poke damage and shuts down your engage. When he was meta, I perma banned him.”

Delta eGirl says “A shadow of his former self, Maokai's saplings are going to be obnoxious and that's about it. Just make it out of laning phase.”

yers says “Thick and he's going to make facechecking uncomfortable. Most you can do is play for earlygame and try to kill him then. Otherwise it will require your support to pitch in a lot of effort to take him down as well.”

TheWizardM says “Maokai support is just about the easiest support to face with this build. He doesn't have to tools to prevent us from getting too close to his adc with his q, and his seeds don't even go off if we walk past while stealthed. Do make sure no ally is walking next to you though as they can cause them to go off.”

Terrific says “Just obnoxious and annoying. Care for his W and plants in bushes. They do annoying amount of damage. His W is very dangerous because he will be able to position himself behind you and Q you towards his ADC. punish him for having cooldown and his melee range.”
CALSHARKY says “Super aids unkillable if you dont punish him early. Lose axes to his gapcloser also.”

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

I Am Goliath says “Similar to most tanks for Urgot, scaling matchup where you can't do too much to punish him early, I recommend building Cull on first back. Once you have Black Cleaver you can start to extended fight him more, once you get death's dance as well you should just destroy him.”
GoliathGames' Ultimate Guide to Urgot (2M+ Mastery Points) by I Am Goliath | Urgot Player
PH45 says “Can be semi-difficult to kill as he has built in sustain and he can just Q you if you try to jump on him. After 6 and with a couple items he shouldn't be a problem to you though. Bork is good buy against him coupled with Divine Sunderer.”
Drake6401 says “This is a pesky laner because of his sustain and CC. He's very good at buzzing you off every time you want to fight and is amazing at setting you up for his jungler to gank. The best way to beat this lane is treat it like most tank matchups and zone him off the wave by establishing early kill pressure. Because of how easy he makes ganks to be, heavy warding is recommended and pray you are on blue side of the map because it's harder to gank than red side. Later in the game, you will want to invest in a Mortal reminder if he's an issue in fights.”

Stinkee says “Maokai is a very unpopular top laner right now so you will not see him often. He will beat you in mostly every way. His Q will cancel your Q, he can W to dodge your Q or E, his saplings do percent health, his passive gives him a ton of sustain. It is very difficult to come out of this lane with a lead. He will rarely have enough damage to kill you ever though without a gank. Just look to farm. Rush Abyssal Mask here.”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T TAKE BAD TRADES. DONT GET CHEESED BY SAPLINGS. TRY TO WIN TRADES HARD BECAUSE OF HIS SUSTAIN. CLEAVER IF BEHIND(somehow). CONQUEROR DAMAGE NEEDED. Even if you miss ALL of your abilities and just auto attack him, you will probably kill him. He is very shit at extended fights. A Maokai will be looking to safely farm with his abilities and keep trades with you short, damaging you a little and then disengaging, with him healing off of his passive later. Just don’t leave yourself in a position where he can easily knock you back without you retaliating. Q spam poke him off of minions. If he roots you in order to dodge the Q, just W/E him in order to stop him from escaping. If possible, time your E/W (whichever one is left) same time as his knock back so the slow lets you catch up. Maokai is VERY GOOD at setting up ganks.”
BoilTheOil says “Go Conqueror or Grasp of the Undying. Do people still play this champion? I haven't played against a Maokai top in a while so I honestly don't know this matchup very much, but he's a tank so that means you can bomb him into their team, and that's good enough for me. Something to watch out for though is him being able to dodge your W with his own W, just save your E so you can stun him and then get W off without him dodging it. I would just farm the lane out and then outscale him.”

MrDomian says “Build Sunfire Aegis. Don't use the skill for no reason so that he doesn't heal himself heavily. Wait for your R and destroy him. ”
✔️ [11.12] ORNN - THE BEST BUILDS AND RUNES! by MrDomian | Ornn Player
Sovereign Kitten says “Maokai can be a real pain to deal with, just keep your distance and do not allow him to get too close, as he will constantly knock you back, gap close, sustain and deal a ton of passive damage through his tanky item build. Void Staff will benefit you greatly in this match-up especially into the late game. You're better off keeping your distance and poking passively with your (Q). You can stop him from sustaining early game with Oblivion Orb and help you get more kill pressure upon him throughout it. Overall it's a pretty hard CC match-up where you don't want to be extended into him all game, due to gank pressure and his lockdown.”
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “This guy has quite a lot of self sustain and high base damage and in about 7-8 min, he can get pretty tanky. Kraken Slayer + BORK will leave Maokai no chance of survival.”

Justkb says “Poke with auto's and run him down at level 3.if he dodges your Q with his E, press ghost and end him. if you get far enough ahead you can easily 2v1 the jungler as Moakai becomes a stacking tool.”
