Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.pngIf you're playing blind pick, or don't need much utility/have high kill potential vs the enemy mid-laner. Also if the enemy team has 8.png36.png75.png122.png. You will need ignite on top of your tank shredding in the mid-late game.
21.pngAgainst 1.png134.png61.png34.png. NO EXCEPTIONS! These are heavy poke into burst champs that have predictable playstyles. This makes it easy to determine the perfect moment to turn a fight using your barrier. FURTHERMORE: All 4 of these champions can throw a spell at you right before you alzaharnethergrasp.png, and cancel it. If they do, YOU WILL NEED TO GET DAMAGE OFF AND BARRIER/LEAVE/FLASH TO MAKE IT OUT ALIVE/GET A KILL WITHOUT DYING!! (Care for 143.png too.)
6.png To compensate for 90.png's lack of mobility. (Great for team-fights, take 6.png when you're certain you can win your lane.) ALWAYS GET 1313.png /1333.pngWHEN YOU TAKE GHOST! 40% SPD + S. SPELL CDR!
12.png When you have a top laner without 12.png That is good to countergank for. OR When your Toplaner is a badass TP'er and you can follow up with them (54.png59.pngVoid Cataclysms!57.png8.png24.png). OR when you think you will do poorly in lane, and your opponent is not burst-intensive. 
3.png Against 131.png238.png105.png268.png. 99% of the time. They will just dodge/shield your ignite, barrier won't do s***, and EXHAUST LATE GAME IS AMAZING (1 exhaust per enemy carry - assuming your supp also has exhaust - for team fights). It especially kills zed and fizz's ults.
4.pngSo you can use it at the fountain or flash at your opponent laner then walk away so they know who's not a p****.

Pretty standard stuff. Q & E are powerful throughout the whole game. You want E to have the earliest damage, your Q is more of a utility and to potentially turn ganks, and your W has HP Shred, which doesn't exist too much until later in the match.


Spam Q until you have void sh*t under your feet at the fountain. This way you can outtrade/invade/counterinvade better. Pet rules at lvl 1.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Don't get anything else for starting items. Fear no mid laner.
    1V2 ANTI-GANKZ-A-HARD ACTIVATED. Play aggressive if they don't have a hard CC engaging/shielding jungler. (So definitely not against a Lee Sin or J4 Jungle). Otherwise when you have these items and you have decent HP, invite the jungler over, CC (Q) the one who has CC, spell combo the squishier one and let your pet(s?) eat the closest person to you. Might take some practice to not play like a wimp at this point in the match. :)

Core Items

    cookie cutter core build. Alacrity, Furor, and Distortion are all great boot enchants. Always take distortion if you have TP or Ghost. ROA>ions>Rabadon (if no zed/fizz)>Zhonya (take before crappadon's if laning Vs. Zed or Fizz) Liandry (NOT LAST?! WTF?!) > Void staff or Rylai (VS if enemies have too much MR, Rylai otherwise)
    super hardcore experienced malz build that i'm scared to even try in ranked, but it's fun trust me, take ghost with this!!!
    against all ad comps, trust me. 40% CDR, A Sh*tload of armor, and a sh*tload of HP to use that armor, all while maintaining High AP/Spell Pen/HP Shred and having invulnerability. Do not FF vs All AD, get full build and dominate.

Situational Items

    See notes. Replace Void Staff or Rylai.
    only take this if you are extremely behind (VS Heavy AP Comp) or 45 mins+ into a match vs 2+ Core AP Champs. Otherwise, this item is an insult to your damage, survival, and mobility.
    Opt for the negronomicon if you need to push lanes hard(er) and the enemy has a somewhat heal intensive comp. Replace Rylai or Void Staff in core (Rylai if tanky enemies, Void Staff if generally low-mid tanky enemy team). However, in most cases, I would not recommend this item.
    AD MALZ!!!! infinite voidling spawns!! E-W-R whoever you want dead.
3060.png3102.png3110.png
Pick one to replace the Void staff with in the core build. 

3102.pngvs Malphite, Annie, Orianna, etc.

3060.png when you have anybody building a Zz'Rot Portal lol. Know that you may use this on your pet, and it gives you relevant stats. :)

3110.pngIf no one on your team has it AND the enemy team has 2+ atkspd AD AA reliant champs on the enemy team. You benefit from the high armor and mana. They won't be able to touch you.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Use E on a wave, if it transfers through most of the wave, use your next E on 266.png. If you don't get mana from clearing a wave, use your E on the next wave until you can spare an E to bully Aatrox. Once you have Catalyst/RoA, this bullying becomes a simple rinse and repeat. 


If you see his animation to aatroxQ.png after he aatroxE.png's toward you, use whatever spells UNDER YOURSELF (no summs unless it's to stay alive or kill someone). I have whooped his ass in lane a couple of times. Yes I would pick malz top with TP just to counter this clown.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Even if she lands an E on you, you will greatly out-DPS her afterward because you should have  alzaharcallofthevoid.png & alzaharnethergrasp.png at your disposal. Get boots early against her and you'll do fine as long as you don't run at her when her spells are up. When she ults, alzaharmaleficvisions.pngalzaharnullzone.pngalzaharnethergrasp.png should be enough to kill her or send her behind her turret so you can go back to farming (all malz needs to do!)

VS

Farm and don't let her land pokes on you. Watch her buffs!! Pay attention to when she's close to having a stun, just like she should be paying attention to your buffs for a similar, scarier reason that the little runt probably underestimates :) malzaharpassive.png
Try to save your ult/all-in right after she uses a Stun to CS/Trade with you. 

Got catalyst+? Spam E on her just cuz it's annie. Get her low for the showdown coming up.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

AOE SILENCE VS AOE SILENCE!! SKill matchup, his 4.pngfeast.png will shit on you though. If you were cho and thought "I can kill him", you need to back, because he's thinking the same thing.

VS

Galio

Medium

Get boots on your first back, shouldn't be a problem. Don't get in range/let him close to you. Just don't try to kill him alone until you have items and can somewhat catch him offguard! I put medium because there isn't as much Kill Potential on Galio. This is definitely a farm lane. Poke when ya can without going under 35% mana.

VS

Kassadin

Easy
alzaharnethergrasp.png...The Balance of Power is a ******* joke.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Just auto attack her LOL, she's like malphite in team fights, but doesn't kill you over and over again in the beginning. 


she has no HP, rarely has tank stats, and you can possibly 1v2 a gank if you get the E to jump. Proceed with caution though, a good Katarina will typically only all-in if she has some lockdown very close by. 


VS

Malphite

Hard

Get ready to be f*****g slammed back into your pathetic oblivion. A good Malphite mid is the last champion you want to fight. Pray your jungler camps for you. ULT HIM BEFORE HE ULTS IN TEAM FIGHTS, AND THROW A alzaharcallofthevoid.png-alzaharnullzone.png WHEREVER YOU THINK HE'S GONNA ULT AFTER! GL!!! Ban this MOFO.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Why didn't you pick Malphite? Blind Pick Malz is rare..for now.

VS

Orianna

Medium

Pretty annoying. Push lane hard once you have 3010.png. Very similar lane to Annie. I highly recommend 21.png or 12.png.
