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

awawa says “He has no kill pressure pre-6. Make sure to proc his spellshield before you use fear combos. His R can setup ganks and kill you in teamfights. Dies when you R. ”

ShokLoL says “Malzahar is one of the weakest early game champions in the game, he has essentially no form of trading power and his waveclear is easily dealt with as long as you kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn. Try and build a significant lead in lane as he scales extremely well so he needs to be put behind. You don't really need a QSS since you have so much range, and you're best off just playing front to back teamfights vs Malzahar instead of looking for engages.”

ShokLoL says “Malzahar is one of the weakest early game champions in the game, he has essentially no form of trading power and his waveclear is easily dealt with as long as you kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn. You should be able to build a huge lead in lane in this matchup. I would normally recommend not buying QSS, as typically you will not be an ult target in teamfights due to your range.”

ShokLoL says “Malzahar is one of the weakest early game champions in the game, he has essentially no form of trading power and his waveclear is easily dealt with as long as you kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn. Try and build a significant lead in lane as he scales extremely well so he needs to be put behind. You also heavily outrange him in the mid game so just be careful about going melee in fights too early. You can take electrocute ignite in this matchup if you prefer.”

Soft Headpats says “You can proc his passive easily, and your waveclear outmatches his since you can melt the voidlings as soon as they spawn. He becomes more dangerous once he hits 6 thanks to his point-and-click ult, but you can also EQ him out of it if you cast it right before he ults you. Keep track of where their jungler is, since the only way you should be dying in this lane is to his ult plus a gank. You can opt for a QSS if you feel like he's focusing you a lot (especially with flash ults), but most of the time you shouldn't be easily accessible for him in the first place. ”

blacklikeblack says “Decent Lane, can be annoying, but after 6 its free. You can cancel his r with your q. Make sure to not waste your Q tho. If you go second wind its free matchup.”

ShokLoL says “Malzahar is one of the weakest early game champions in the game, he has essentially no form of trading power and his waveclear is easily dealt with as long as you kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn. Be careful of stepping up post 6 if you don't know where their jungler is. You can consider QSS, but you don't want to buy it too early as it will slow down your spikes too much.”

ShokLoL says “Malzahar is one of the weakest early game champions in the game, he has essentially no form of trading power and his waveclear is easily dealt with as long as you kill his voidlings as soon as they spawn. Malzahar does scale well but you scale even better so even a small lead will generally be enough. You can buy a QSS early if you feel like you need it but you should outrange him in fights so I try skip it if I can.”

Deceiver_euw says “Malzahar is similar to Lissandra, but he does not neutralize her in lane. Qss is recommended but you can also play to avoid him later on. In lane you will win 1v1 into him but after 6 you have to respect him hard if there is a chance that his jungler is mid. If you are sure that you are 1v1 mid, you can trade recklessly. You also win 1v1 hard pre 6.”

Paczo says “Annoying asf, if he dont have a shield, try to trade. Without jungler he gonna be pain in the ass.”
