Why Malzahar?

I've recently picked up Malzahar because he seemed really fun, which he is. But after playing for a while I'm finding it hard to understand why someone would play him over most of the other casters in the game ie. Ryze, Fiddle, Annie. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong. Any tips/build would be greatly appreciated.

He's underpowered.

The problem is that Malzahar is rather lackluster, and his abilities are kind of buggy.

Hopefully Riot will take this into consideration and give him a rework he deserves. He is a fun champion to play, just not good enough.

Wow, seriously? I main Malz and yes, he can't one shot people, but hes a freakin beast in team fights. I just silenced your whole team and then proceeded to stun, while damaging no less, your biggest dps threat while my team beats them down....all while a dot runs rampantly from team member to team member when they die....

Yeah, keep thinkin hes UP. lmao

To the OP, read this: http://leaguecraft.com/strategies/guide/3541 and stick to your team and believe me, you will absolutely love playing Malzahar, unless you're looking for a one trick pony death button.

Annie, Fiddles, Ryze can do the same thing.

And they can one shot the other team.

While I personally prefer some other casters, I do think his AoE silence is hugely underestimated.

problem being that his aoe silence bugs out. a lot.

That would be a good counterpoint if the actual silence were bugged, but as long as the skill lands, it silences.

Why? You wouldn't.

The other casters are all (mostly) superior, insofar as what they bring to the table.
