I've been minced by him three games in a row so far. Everyone has counters. What are his?

If you can bait the dodge, top Udyr can out sustain and trade him.

Yorick is a safe neutral pick vs him, and the key to beating him is to outsustain him.

Any champion that doesn't rely on autoattacks is going to remove the advantage of his dodge. However, he counters casters with his gap closer. Swain, while not relying on autoattacks, also doesn't care how close you are to him, and has legendary sustain.

Try one of those.

I was thinking Swain after last game. Deceptively strong burst, and his ult keeps hurting and healing even through the stun.

I don't really see how. Jax is half Magic, so Malph can't stack armor like he can against, like, J4, and Malphite's damage, while not exclusively related to autoattacks, at least benefits largely from them. His slow doesnt stop Jax from escaping with his jump, and the attack speed slow on it is, going to hurt jax, but not as much as, again, say, J4, since jax has an autoattack reset.

Im not saying I disagree I'd just like to know how.

Malphite just out damages jax with his tiny bursts over time and whenever jax comes with counter strike malphite can just slow and run away...

Malphite just doesn't stacks armor he can get an abyssal scepter like ammumu end game...

Also I'm pretty sure J4 and malphite is more even than Jax and Malphite... have you actually seen this comp multiple times or just basing it on their abilities and stats...

I agree with the malphite beating Jax and that Alpharius is wrong...
Alpharius has no ranked games played while we do..especially that shash guy who's 1.6k elo
Alphrarius sucks...

All I do is ask how Malphite counters Jax, and I get downvoted to -5.

And my first post downvoted too, when they guy right after me agrees with me and gets upvoted?

wtf.
