A lot of people have been having problem with Leblanc. I thought we could start a discussion about some Leblanc counters. Such as:

* Morgana - She counter's Leblanc perfectly with her spell shield to block the silence. Just use it as she moves in. Some damage will still get through, so make sure to try to spell drain with Tormented Soil on some creeps before Leblanc recharges all of her cooldowns.
* Lux - Oddly enough she can keep her out of range while nuking her if she's played well.
* Banshee's Veil helps but isn't perfect.
* Mercury Treads - This should be a given.
* Chalice of Harmony. If you're going to be building mana regen anyway, you might want to pick this up if you see Leblanc or any big nukers on the other team.
* Anyone else with a silence. Malz/Kassadin/Cho'Gath/Garen

Any other suggestions?

Any melee dmg character can waste her life rly badly early game. As xin u can rush in and knock up for sirious dmg at lvl 2 without giving her much chance for casting. Great intimidation .

And most characters in the game have some form of CC for a reason, also, Quicksilver Sash kills her combo dmg.

But only a chosen few can be countered with just one CC.

Morgana is also something that should either be banned or picked in every ranked game, ever. If this is not the case, something is horribly wrong.

Being Lux far outweighs countering LeBlanc. That's like picking Urgot to deal with champion X - Just not worth it. Unless they have a lot of other champions that get owned by Lux. And I can't think of any that do. And I haven't had any problems whatsoever with Luxes as LeBlanc.

Chances are you should be getting BV at one point or another anyway. It's.. Pretty **** good.

Some more, in no particular order.

1 - Aegis: Aegis is OP. It's the next best item after boots in this game. If your team doesn't have Aegis, you're doing it wrong, and you should get it. Yes, even if you are Annie or Ashe.
2 - Wards: Despite being able to 3-shot you, LeBlanc cannot kill you unless she gets in range to cast her spells. Ward the bush next to your lane and she can't get close enough. When she can't get fed, she can't dominate the game, and will suck lategame.
3 - Karthus: Whenever I play LeBlanc, I'm happy no one plays Karthus. I always escape with some 20% health. In other words, Karthus could sodomize me every time I do anything. And he doesn't even have to be there to do it. He just has to exist.
4 - Kassadin: Kassadin is basically a better LeBlanc to begin with, but he is also a great counter to our favourite deceiver. Silence? Nom. AoE to hit when Le's invis? Check. Passive that really helps? Yeah. Ultimate that forces Le to use ultimate for chasing? More or less yeah.
5 - Shen: LeBlanc combos you. Shen ults you. You survive. LeBlanc has to go back or die, since she's squishy as hell.
6 - Soraka: See Shen, except Soraka also has a nice cool aura that reduces Le's damage by a fair margin. And a silence. Soraka might not be an awesome champion, though, so picking her just to counter LeBlanc probably isn't worth it, but she does do awesome job at it.
7 - Zhonya: If Blanc combos you in a teamfight, or at tower, and you click this, she'll feel like cutting her wrists, trust me. Hanging around for two seconds is not something she wants to do, because she's squishier than a Teemo plushie.
8 - Clairvoyance: Frankly, this also counters every champion that wants to aggressively gank. And is a staple in most ranked games. Also, overpowered as hell. Also, get this. Also. And.
9 - Heal: Do you know what sucks? Almost getting a kill, then the opponent healing. Especially if this happens at a tower or in middle of the enemy team.
