Is non-existent. I just played a game where a negative xin zhao with malady and beserker greaves killed me from half health, 1v1. This is a bit ridiculous. Squishy melee assassins like Shaco and Akali have been hurt pretty bad by this meta, and Riot doesn't seem to care.

Does anyone have a strategy for making shaco less squishy without resorting to the gimmicky sunfire build? Thanks.

you obviously don't know how shaco is supposed to be played.

I'm not having much trouble as Akali. Especially not against Xin. I'd probably laugh at a malady/greaves Xin considering my ability to 1V1 Xin's with real builds.

you must be bad if you lost 1 v 1 to a Xin Zhao with malady and Zerker Greaves. Shaco can lay down a box fear xin zhao use his ultimate and decieve backstab him till death. When playing shaco NEVER GET HIT.

Personally i don't miss mandreds shaco at all, but you are probably doing something wrong if win xhao can kill you that easily. You are an assassin, you don't fight 1 v 1. You KILL 1 v 1.
Lay down traps, create a good situation where you can't possibly lose, don't give him time to knock you up.

Ok that sounded gay.
