The best malzahar counter is Katarina, obviously.

Only because Malz can't resist a red hed. I wouldn't she counters him...

I've had a lot of success against Malz as Sivir.
His casting animations have a long delay, so it's easy to land BBs when he casts.
Additionally, his abilities are all predictable (aside from his Ult) which makes for easy Spell Shield material...and thus Malz auto-sustains Sivir in lane.


His ulti's range is also shorter than his Q and W. He always tries to land his W and E on you before Ulting...so that usually means he goes W, Flash, E, Ult. Or W, Flash, Ult. It's more difficult to predict, but if you pack a Banshee's Veil, just watch for your BV shield to go down...as soon as it does, activate Spell shield and you've blocked a predictable Malzahar ulti. The other option of course is to just take QSS and cleanse out of it. Both require good timing to take full advantage of it.

I've never laned against Sivir as Malz, but I can see she'd be pretty rough too, especially if you picked up BV, but that wouldn't happen until later. I can't remember though...how long is the cooldown on spellshield?
