If your captain derped and did not ban shen, you need to play a very high sustain duelist top.

And you need to count on the shen making some major mistakes

I beat Shens suspiciously often as Mantheon. Just have to hope they're jumpy on their shields and blow it too early (or they just suck in general and hit it too late).

Bonus: Shieldbonk on command. What ult?

Played Solo top Panth against a Shen in Normals.

Aside from mana problems (which Panth has) and His passive being useless against him, I was winning the lane and eventually took down his turret.

The Ruthless Pantheon skin also helped

But remember, chances are that you WONT get fed as Panth against a Shen, even with a jungler ganking (my bro was Jungling Jarvan). Never got a kill because of that shadow dash, didn't get too fed, and had very little impact come late game.

It didn't help having bottom feeding and raging, but oh well. We all have a few of those.

Get an early Meki on Panth. Huck spears err'day. Maybe upgrade it to a chalice against an AP top.

Yes, it's not MOAR DAMAGE. Yes, you will probably get mocked. Totally works, though.

A champion with CC that can stop a channel, a champion that can push hard and punish him leaving, or a champion that doesn't mind it when Shen gets assist/kill gold every few minutes because that's what's going to happen.

a ban is a nice counter

Pick Garen and silence him every time he tries to ult, if he succeeds to ult enjoy your free farm and carry your team till late late game. Shen doesn't really do much vs Garen till he starts getting items in my experience.
