Summoner Spells Back to Top

I prefer going TP Flash since you are playing a tank champion, not a damage one. Usually in most exchanges you wont lose the fights (against AD) because you will be so tanky, and your natural burst from scaling is enough to trade well, so I dont feel ignite is needed.

Runes Back to Top

  • 9x
    +0.26 mana regen / 5 sec. Greater Mark of Mana Regeneration
  • 9x
    +1.34 magic resist Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
  • 9x
    +1 armor Greater Seal of Armor
  • 3x
    +4.26 armor Greater Quintessence of Armor

You will be an unstoppable tank in laning phase, it will be super hard for AD's to kill you and slightly hard for APs too. Your kit is built for tank, so why not get runes to match that?

I like to get the CDR for harrass in lane, I dont really care about the AP masteries, I just want the arcane knowledge spec so that I can have better trades since I wont be building damage. I get the mana regen because of his mana problems early on, which can for sure help to harrass in lane, and the defensive stats explain themselves.

In lane your W will be useless really, so I dont like getting it at early levels, ESPECIALLY if I dont want to push the lane (passive makes all AA's AOE). Your E in lane will be your best friend, its what will give you most of the damage you do as it scales off of armor, it deals AOE damage and slows their AA's making it extremely useful against champions like Jax and Tryndamere. Your Q either makes your foes unable to run away from you, or your foes to be able to catch up to you. Then we have your ult, this ult is one of the best in the game. It makes Mal an excellent tank, has a pretty long range and makes him also able to work very well with AOE comps. This gives him great initation, has pretty good damage without any AP, and does a decently long stun. This is what makes him have such a good presence in teamfights, you team will for you to engage.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Faerie Charm for regen in lane, a ward, one mana pot and 5 health pots.
    Only get this if you feel you have to, otherwise just start with whats on the left.

Core Items

    I love to rush sunfire, it gives him the tankyness and health he needs early on, and it makes his pushing excellent. After I get MR boots, the reason I dont get armor is because you will already have so much that it just isnt needed. After wards the items are in the order as followed, I actually like to get athenes ONLY IF NOBODY ON YOUR TEAM BUILDS AEGIS. You might this this is a weird last item to get but it will give you the mana return you need for each kill or assist, gives pretty decent MR and slightly increases your damage.

Situational Items

    Honestly this is the build I always run and I feel it is most effective for me. I have never had a need to run anything else besides that. Its up to you really, but get armor boots if the team is pretty much full AD, otherwise there is just no need.

VS

Akali

Easy

Akali is AP but squishy as hell and you harrass her better. Eventually you will be too tanky for her.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Cho is just as tanky as you except he has more damage, its a pretty hard fight but if you call your jungler up you should do fine.

VS

Darius

Medium

With all the mana regen you will get it will be easy to win this, just harrass him like crazy. He is AD, so once you get some items you will be too tanky for him. But his ult does deal true damage, so dont think if you can beat him in a 1v1 fight just because you are tanky.

VS

Diana

Easy

She isnt seen top a lot but if she is its an easy lane. Her Q is easy to dodge and she cant do anything to you until she gets higher leves, meaning you will be able to get your tanky items easily without having to worry about getting killed by her.

VS

Elise

Hard

You cant really do anything against Elise, she can outharrass you can most Elises' get magic penetration so you are kinda screwed. But you win in teamfights so just call your jungler for ganks and you should be fine.

VS

Fiora

Easy

She cant do anything to you, and you can bait her ult easily if she goes in on you. If Fiora ults you and you have your ult, just ult to your turrent and she wont be able to touch you. AD so your tankyness will just beat her damage.

VS

Garen

Medium

He cant get close enough to you without getting Q'd and you just outrunning him. The only problem is he is usually tanky enough that you cant really kill him, so it just depends on your jungler.

VS

Irelia

Medium

Her true damage means your armor wont do anything at all. She can win in 1v1 trades but you can harrass her with Q and if she keeps on you just E to slow her AA's a bit, usually the fights will be pretty even, so its more of a skill matchup.

VS

Jax

Easy

You are the hardest counter to Jax in the game, this is the easiest possible matchup you can do and its pretty easy. It's pretty easy, just Q and E him and when he is low enough ult him. No special technique is involved with him, just damage him and kill him. Easiest matchup NA.

VS

Jayce

Hard

He pokes you pretty hard, and you can really get close to him. He will just harrass you until he can all in you, not really anything you can do besides just farming until you can get tanky.

VS

Kayle

Medium

She can poke you out of lane but you slow her AA's, your goal with this fight is to only fight her when your passive is up, then go in with a Q, dont E her until she Es so you can use your attack speed slow effectively. Just dont get baited by her ult and you will be fine.

VS

Kennen

Hard

This guy will just harrass you to no end. You have no hope of winning trades with him until you get a few items in, but after that it isnt too hard.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Kha is pretty simple, he is too squishy to fight you upfront and he wont have very much luck harrassing you with his W early because he will run out of mana fast. But when he reaches level 6 he will have a decent harrass against you, although usually at that time you will already have a giants belt or chain vest building towards your Sunfire.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

He cant really fight you upfront, but he may just keep poking you with his Q until he can all in you. This is more of a skill matchup.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

She is pretty much never seen top after her release, but she can poke you down pretty hard and if she ults herself when you ult her it wont affect her, meaning she will still have the health to kill you. Plus you will be damaged by her ult as well, so its more of a reaction time with her.

VS

Malphite

Hard

This is only for blind pick, but the hardest counter to a champion is themselves imo. Just ask your jungler for a early gank and you will be able to snowball it easily.

VS

Nasus

Medium

He is just as tanky as you, the only difference is you deal more damage than him early game, so make sure to take advantage of that. In past experiences, whether or not I was playing an AP champion, Nasus would always rush armor against me. Not many people actually know that Malphite is AP just because of the way he looks, this may or may not play a factor in what the Nasus buys, but in general he will not build MR against you. So t shouldnt really be a problem.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

You are too tanky for her poke and she is too squishy for your scaling. You should crush her.

VS

Olaf

Easy

Not seen much after his nerfs, but he is still extremely viable. Your main goal is to dodge his axes, other than that his sustain wont really do much as your tankyness will keep up with it. Also, try to not go in without your passive shield up, because you want his E (which deals true damage) to have as less damage done to you as possible. Other than that, pretty simple.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Early game he will just damage you like crazy, but after you get your sunfire you will be just as scary.

VS

Poppy

Easy

No idea as I have never played against her, just going to say she is easy.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Renekton early game will just outdamage you HARD. You are going to want to get as tanky as possible as fast as possible so that he doesnt just shred you. Other than that you will beat him HARD in teamfights, so there shouldnt really be any worries.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Number one goal fighitng against Rengar is DO NOT ATTACK HIM WHEN HIS FURY IS UP. Other than that your damage will practically be true damage and you will just beat him in 1v1s hard, especially once you get Sunfire.

VS

Riven

Medium

Riven early game will dominate you, as she does many other champions. Ask your jungler for ganks and just pray that she doesnt play too aggresive early game, atleast until your tanky enough to kill her. She does NO magic damage from ANY of her abilities, so later on the the game it will be really easy to beat her as she will almost deal no damage to you.

VS

Rumble

Hard

Rumble just shreds you down hard, you cant fight him upfront since he will just outdamage you, your best hope is to get MR as fast as possible (MR Boots would work well against him) and just ask your jungler for constant ganks. Unless the Rumble sucks he should easily win this lane, keep that in mind when playing against him.

VS

Shen

Medium

Shen cant really hurt you that much, you are both equally as tanky. Your fights are pretty even, this will all come down to how good you both are with the mechanics of your ults.

VS

Singed

Hard

He isnt seem much after his nerfs, but you cant fight him upfront as his DoT magic damage shreds you down much faster than you may think. In my opinion, Malphites number one counter is DoT magic damage.

VS

Talon

Easy

Too squishy, there isnt really much to be said other than that.

VS

Teemo

Easy

Teemo is a bit back and forth, when he runs at you just run at him, he WILL run away unless he is dumb. At that time you just Q him and walk back to the creeps, he will try to harrass you with AA's whenever you do this but wont be able to since he will just be too slow. Repeat this until he is low enough for you to kill him, easy lane.

VS

Trundle

Medium

Too tanky and has too much sustain, this is more of a farm lane and it will come down to the junglers rather than you.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Easy lane, just watch out for his ult.

VS

Vi

Hard

She is probably the hardest AD counter to you as your armor doesnt help you AT ALL against her. But you can still win lane with the help of ganks.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

Just too weak for you, you outtrade him and outburst him. More presence in teamfights as well, it makes him almost useless.

VS

Wukong

Easy

His damage early game is pretty decent but once you get some armor he just cant do anything at all.

VS

Yorick

Hard

Yorick is anti-fun, so dont expect to do well against him until you get some armor.

VS

Zac

Hard

Zac is just weird against Mal. He doesnt win trades but the problem with Zac is that although he doesnt have a lot of damage he makes up with it with insane sustain, meaning that in general you will win trades but then he will just have more health than you and you will get dived. This lane requires some help from your jungler but other than that he is just too sustainy.

VS

Zed

Easy

Too squishy and wont be able to shred through your armor.
