I've had pretty good success against both AP and AD Malzahar with Orianna, but just having a good champ isn't going to be enough. You have to know how to play the match up as well.

with malzahaar ad or ap he's a wave pusher regardless trying to poke and harass you down while pushing you in. He's a tough match up regardless. You want a champion that can wave clear really well and/or straight up duel with him in an outplay match up. Another ranged mage like Orianna is a solid match up. A melee champion typically needs QSS and to max wave clear / poke abilities to help stave the wave off. Melee AD I like hydra for the sustain/wave clear. After that it's about outplaying and poking him down as best you can. If he's AD try to focus down his minions if you can in a safe manner. The best answer is to gank him because if he's pushed up to you he doesn't have a lot of tools to escape and will more than likely go down.

Typically the match up is a struggle from the beginning because he just pushes so fast and it's hard to keep the wave from stacking. Having early ganks pre-6 helps or just at 6 really helps. Malz is a tough 1 on 1 match up.

Koravel plays pretty much Malz as his main botlane, he asked AD or AP because there are different strategys for fighting each, he will probably stop by again with a quick writeup on what to do for each.
