Exhaust is to physical as [Blank] is to magical

It used to be cleanse, but they nerfed it.

Hard.

cleanse would also work against the ability ideas I'm suggesting here. I fail to see the point of the argument I guess.

Edit: Unless you're suggesting that cleanse is the counter to casters to which I disagree because there's plenty of AD champions it is equally effective against.

Cooldowns.

Exhaust slows both casters and melee, so that's even.

Where a caster can Exhaust and make a melee champ pretty worthless, cooldowns make a caster pretty worthless(when abilites are on cooldown). That's the idea I see in play. Practical application, that's a different story.

Cleanse is usable at lvl 1... but cleanse ain't gonna stop damage from a caster.

Mage ss, exhaust, cleanse
dps ss, cleanse, [blank]

plus... you hardly see cleanse anymore. At least I don't >.>

cleanse is now a mandatory summoner ability, like flash

To elaborate on the idea of an anti-caster summoner, I don't think there needs to be one.

In League of Legends, unlike other games of the genre (despite the fact it's the only game with summoners), all physical heroes have 4 active spells, many of which actually define the hero as opposed to right clicking. An anti-spell summoner would almost always hurt the physical hero more, such as items like Wit's End, a supposedly anti-caster item, which despite how bad it is, wrecks physicals with low mana pools moreso than the casters with giant ones.

Just because there's a niche for something doesn't mean something has to fill that niche.

Because casters don't have enough problems already.

Here's why cleanse used to be the anti-caster summoner spell.

Say Malzahar uses his ult. on you. Now say you hit cleanse.
