Anyone know a good counter to Morgana & her Black Shield?

although morg's damage is no longer totaly annihilated by merc treads they still reduce the snare times by quite a bit, cleanse will also get you out of her ult aswell. as for the shield though best option would be to burst it down or wait, one thing though is it does now stop physical attacks or ignite, both of those will go right through it.

Poppy can break it now, as can other people. Look under the most recent patch notes

It blocks only magical damage. So all mystic shots, volleys still go through it.
Talking about morgana generally, merc threads counter her very much. not as much as before patch since it was reducing Q's damage by 40-50%, but it still will help you very much. in any case i guess everybody should be making merc threads, who is not a caster and in a huge need of magic pen, since it's still the best boots.

Black shield is good, but get merc treads and take cleanse and you no longer have to worry about Morgana.

It actually blocks "spell" damage, not magical damage. Most Physical spells still count as spell damage (you can tell because you get spell vamp with them). Parrley, Mystic Shot, and Infinite Duress are the only ones that count as non-spell damage spells, as these trigger on-hit effects.

For the shield specifically, it doesn't really absorb all that much damage. She isn't likely to level it much in the early game (I usually just keep it at rank 1 or 2 for the early-mid game to prevent Enchanted Crystal Arrow/Cryptic Gaze/Aegis stuns), so breaking it shouldn't be too hard. Like others said, it only absorbs Magic damage.

Mercury Treads still screw Morg over somewhat - while Dark Binding isn't as badly hit by them, Tormented Soil is still underwhelming against Treads (partly due to the Binding being cut down) and they make it harder to get both bursts off of Soul Shackles (though thankfully the last patch shifted the bursts back to being even, instead of back-loaded).

Pick Olaf.

Get Phage (or for better results, Frozen Hammer).

See Morgana? See Morgana run?

Ghost to Morgana, Morgana spins around to DB you, but WAIT. You pop Olaf ult.

Morgana cries and quickly gets raped, because she can't stun you with her ult, can't snare you w/ DB and BS does **** because you don't deal any magic damage at all. Best she can do is throw TS at your feet and watch as she gets raped while standing in a giant black puddle.

Say, 'HAI MORGANAZ 8D. I OLAF,' and then listen to Morgana QQ about what an OP BS Ult you have, because it is true :/... (mostly vs. Morgana).

Morgana counters Morgana
Counter her CC with Black shield, and break her shield with your spells.
