12.png Teleport is the best all around summoner spell for Malzahar


Good for getting back to lane early game, usually after basing with 400-500 gold.

Good for split pushing.



Other summoner spells are good too, like ignite or exhaust in other situations.

VS

Ahri

Medium
21.png I always run barrier because sometimes if she hits the charm you need a back-up plan. It's also good for baiting her in- if she's close enough you can combo her.

1.png This is also an option you can run- it works to remove the charm debuff/CC.

You do more damage than her but she can just as easily kill you when she lands all her skillshots, especially if she lands her charm. 


If her ahriorbofdeception.png or ahriseduce.png is on cooldown then you can probably beat her in a 1v1. If they are both on cooldown and she is close enough in range you might want to just zone her or engage. If the jungler ganks you can just use Flash E + R. You can W + R as well. You probably won't have enough time to use all 3 spells, sometimes they flash once they see the Q animation. Dodge her ahriorbofdeception.png on the way back to avoid the true dmg output.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Anivia usually has trouble farming under tower pre 6 so just push him in.


1.png Is good because you can cleanse his stun and his ignite combo.

Sometimes this just turns into a farm lane and you have to roam. If you plan to just farm may be you should run 12.png so you can gank.

1001.png is good early buy because it allows you to dodge his flashfrost.png better.

VS

Annie

Medium

Run 21.png

Some Annies have trouble farming under tower, just shove her in early and see if she knows how to farm properly.

Ask for a gank lvl 6 and flash ult with E and W, or Q if it can hit so you don't get stunned.

You can push so that she has to Q the minions instead of harrassing you.

If she farms perfectly up to level 6 she will probably shop and flash combo you...she will win if you try to combo her at the same time cause of her stun. I suggest you run barrier21.png and build catalyst3010.png (for hp) for her lvl 6 engage.

3116.png For more HP.
3157.pngIf you want to try to use hourglass on her ult.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

VS

Azir

Medium
ask for ganks when ur ult is up, or early if he plays aggro 

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium
cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png will cancel your alzaharnethergrasp.png if she presses it right before you cast your ult.

Level 1 she will try to harass you with cassiopeianoxiousblast.png. Try to avoid it and just farm,  alzaharcallofthevoid.png her when she tries to harass you.

She has terrible mana regen early usually so just push the wave and form her to farm under turret. Ward your bush and stand on that side before pushing. Play safe unless you know the jungler is not close enough to help.

I prefer to roam vs this match-up. Sometimes they can be scripting and it's not very fun if their jungler shows up. She can snowball out of control if you die a couple times.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium
3151.png Is the best item vs Cho'gath

If he stacks MR then get 3135.png

Try to get 1001.png early so you can dodge his rupture.png better.

7.png is also good vs him.

3027.png is probably the best item vs him other than Liandry's because it always you to survive his combo.
3116.png More hp, great for catch enemies out and slowing the dinosaur down.

VS

Diana

Hard

i hate diana

i never play against her so i don't really know what to say sorry.

just get mr vs her, you need to survive her burst, ult then hope ur team kills her

VS

Fizz

Hard

look up your jungler if he's bad/ never jungles just dodge

VS

Gangplank

Medium
removescurvy.png will remove alzaharnethergrasp.png.

Wait until after he uses it and then he will probably die.

Play your lane aggressive and try to kill his barrels. You can silence himalzaharcallofthevoid.png so he can't shoot his barrels with his parley.png.

VS

Jayce

Hard

RUN 21.png

It's easy to miss your Q against Jayce when he combo's and tries to Q E you in melee form.

Kill early before he starts to poke everyone down.

Try to get help from the jungler/ play safe early.


Try to hit level 6 before you trade with him, or have a voidling out. He can usually out trade you levels 1-6 unless you're running barrier.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

CALL MIA

You can usually save your alzaharmaleficvisions.png and just last hit, harass him so he can't cs. You could zone him or just push him under tower.


nulllance.png gives a shield so try to do dmg while it's on cooldown.
If he riftwalk.png's in on you and can't kill you then you can usually combo him.

nulllance.png can interrupt your ult channel so be careful. If he casts it the same time you ult he can potentially interrupt you.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Usually a free win unless kat knows what she's doing...
She probably can't kill you in lane so she will roam. Warn your teammates with pings.

Use yellow pings and follow/roam to get a kill on the other side of the map/kill tower -if it's safe to push, teammates will respond better to them. Question mark pings do not get the attention of tunnel vision players.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

Shove waves into her tower. If she is using her abilities to farm she can't harrass you. She is super squishy- focus on landing your E's on her and your voidling will do the rest.


She should be dead at lvl 6 when you can ult.
I prefer running 21.png so she can't burst me.

VS

Lulu

Easy

Her ult can knock-up and interrupt a channel.

If you run my voidling build, try to harass with the voidling when you can and if you get caught in a slow Q her because she will probably try to AA you right after.

VS

Lux

Medium
1001.png3113.png IF YOU GET ENOUGH MOVEMENT SPEED YOU CAN OUTRUN HER SKILLSHOTS. gg i win you dumb blondie :3

Do not go ROA, GET MOVEMENT SPEED AND LEARN TO DODGE HER SKILLSHOTS. RYLAIS IT UP SO U HAVE MOVEMENT SPEED AND SLOW- HAVE FUN.

Lux is by far the most annoying match-up for me personally. Mostly because if she q's you mid/late game she can probably 100-0 you. On a low mobility champ, her luxlightbinding.png is a nightmare.

Her E can reach you from far away which is really annoying.

Usually a farm lane...

If her shield is on CD KILL HER!

She can snipe you so easily, try to get your jungler to help and ward a bunch.

VS

Morgana

Easy

Don't ult into her shield.blackshield.png

1001.png for dodging her darkbindingmissile.png.


If you get hit by her darkbindingmissile.png you will most likely die.
Just alzaharmaleficvisions.png if she uses blackshield.png early and use alzaharnullzone.pngalzaharnethergrasp.png after her shield is on cooldown.

I'm actually not afraid of this match-up at all. Usually a win for me.

VS

Syndra

Medium
21.png Probably a good option vs her. If she ignites and syndraR.png with max balls you can easily die.


She will try to Q-> E and stun you. Her stun is a straight line so it's easy to sidestep early game.

She can stun you right before your ult starts to channel so be careful.

VS

Taliyah

Hard

VS

Talon

Medium

Talon can be tricky. Don't let him hit lvl 6 first. He can also harass you down and finish you off.

He can combo you @ lvl 6.

21.png You might want to run this so you don't die in his combo.


3027.png3116.png3157.pngThese items will save you from his burst.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Most likely a free win unless he avoids 1v1s and camps top/mid. Run 12.png if you want to catch him during his ult. Ping your teammates and call mia. Use yellow pings!

If you know how to push hard without losing cs then see if he can cs under tower, shove the wave- ward and don't get ganked (stand near the ward). A good tf will red/bluecard and clear his wave.


Easy to beat in lane and dies easily to a combo- he will look for kills in other lanes. Push his tower down or ult him when he tries to ult to gank. **If you take his tower early, try to roam! Make sure you get boots since Malz is super immobile.

Try to practice moving around side to side, and pay attention to his cooldowns!.... 

VS

Veigar

Medium

Best option 1.png


Q when he tries to stun you. The silence will cancel out the stun.. or just walk away before the stun connects.

 3102_32.png(Get Banshees 2nd item).

Maybe  3157_32.png if you want to be super safe and hourglass his ult animation.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Probably a farm lane, he can combo you pretty easily so make sure you don't get caught.

Try to get a gank cause he will try to out range you like Xerath does.

velkozE.png Careful for his knock-up, he can 3 proc you and ult.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Scaling hp runes and MR, barrier or heal as well

VS

Vladimir

Medium

Run 14.png

Not a very common match-up in mid lane. He'll try to harrass- mainly with his Q and a few of his E's here and there.

Vlad can't clear waves very quickly early on in the game so just shove the lane! He'll miss cs under the tower (unless he's good).

If you run AD runes with ignite like I do, then you can probably kill him early (especially since ignite will destroy the next Q's hp regen).

You should be able to W->R Vlad instantly once he's low enough hp. Ignite will cancel your ult*

VS

Xerath

Medium

Try not to pick into him...you can't really kill him unless he is careless and gets too close. You have to flash to get close enough to combo.

If their jungler ganks you Xerath can hit you without you even touching him.

Flash alzaharnethergrasp.png will do the trick but you will need a gank.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

He can beat you early on.
14.png21.png use ignite if you are confident. Barrier should be used if you are not familiar with Yasuo. You can bait the bad yasuos with barrier under tower sometimes.

He literally cannot wall anything of yours.

He may be aggressive early, using E (dashing through) on minions all around you.

Be patient, use auto attacks and run backwards, timing your movement in between auto attacks. As you do that, make sure your voidling is on Yasuo and not on a minion (use E or auto attacks to dictate it's target). When you 100% sure Q will land then go for it, otherwise don't risk it- if you miss he may go all in.

Voidlings follow your in priority order :

 R->-E->-Autoattacks.

VS

Zed

Medium

He is stronger than you lvls 1-3

I recommend 3.png and using it for his ult at lvl 6. Rush 3157.png so get seeker's armguard and a mana crystal.

If you run ignite with +19 Ad runes/masteries you might be able to beat him early.
He probably won't expect it.

You can kill him @ lvl 6 (with a gank just to be safe).

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Get MR or his ult can one-shot you.
