Introduction

Hi, my name is Domeric, and I love malzahar. This isn't my normal build, but it works very well in a lot of scenarios. There are team comps that I almost always build this way i.e. if they have a Garen, Voli, Darius, Renekton, or Singed on the team than this build will keep you away from them. It also works very well if you are getting raped in early teamfights due to no peels, this helps with that and you become your own peels.

SPEED

The whole idea behind this build is for crazy kites. Ever since they changed the slows for Rylai's every one of your spells slow the enemy by quite a bit. Garen on your back, cast a spell, he Q's out of it so what cast another one problem solved. It also burns tanks pretty quick with all the ap, and the Liandry's.

Pros:
Super long single-target CC
One of the fastest wave clearer's in the game
Extremely powerful combo

Voidling can be used to get in the way of skill shots
Makes up for lack of escape with speed boots, and Rylai's

Cons
Relatively squishy
Ult can leave you vulnerable if team doesn't protect you
No escapes
Good positioning important
Quicksilver Sash can negate ult

Wards

It is very very important that you keep up wards on both sides from your very first back. You start out as an immobile champ, which means that you can't really get away if you don't see them come up without flashing. My preference is to ward deeper and not in the side bushs so that I have time to see them, keep in mind tho that some champs i.e. Shaco, Vi, Lee Sin can easily jump that wall and go into the side bush without you seeing them, in which case you need to ward close bushs.
