Welcome to the Malzahar champion counter pick guide, complete with lane phase counters, general and even items. Below we talk about what makes a champions a malzahar counter. since the malzahar rework not much has changed, his kit still remains fairly the same.
The best champion counter for malzahar can be both in lane or simply in game. For instance when ulted, tahm kench can consume malzahar’s ulted target. this is a big malzahar counter pick, however tahm is not as strong of a support in the current meta. The same could be said for kayle, since she can ult a ally and negate almost all the damage.
A strong Malzahar counter pick during lane phase, is a champion who can negate damage from his ult. Gangplank is possibly the best choice as a Malzahar Champion Counter, since his (W) can remove malzahar ult. Another great counter pick is galio, just make sure malzahar passive is down before you ult him.
You can counter pick even if you not in the same lane, champion counter can be effective in team fights. Since Rylai’s will slow almost every one and malzahar is almost sure to build it. Olaf makes a great malzahar counter, thanks to his (R) Ragnorak. Alistar is really strong against most champions, a excellent choice of a support champion counter.
Building Hex Drinker will also be ideal against him. If you have to play against this champion, you should play gap closing champions that can move quickly. If its a AP versus AP lane setup then the unholy grail or abyssal is a good option.
