A guide to become that annoying player that makes people flame you because

Hey guys, how's it going. My name is Ludikit and this is my first champion guide. Hope you enjoy it and most importantly, hope it was informative to you.

So, Malzahar. The broken annoying stupid *** champion that you hate to play against in SoloQ. But, you know what they say, if you can't beat Malzahar...

Malza is, for this new season 8, a rate S mid laner. In my humble opinion, he is indeed that good; God Tier.

With Malzahar you can just perma shove the waves, making your enemy laner stay for the wave, or give it up if he wants to roam. He can, however, keep up with the shove if he's playing champions like Morgana, Lissandra, etc. But, truth is, due to your big mana pool, you are probably doing this faster and way more consistently then they do, all at the cost of roughly 120 mana per wave (one E, one W and a few autos).

Now, as for the technical choices

For Malza, I like to take Flash Teleport, as it allows me to sit in lane for the perma shove, while also being able to use Tp as like a counter gank for instance, a roam, or even just to help my team secure certain objectives. With that being said, I don't always take Aery, and sometimes go for Spellbook, as it makes me use my teleport more often, and perhaps swap it with a Ghost for a better roam or an exhaust for picks, either later on early in the game.

Whether I'm going for Aery or Spellbook, I believe taking Stopwatch and Future's Market is a must, for me. With Stopwatch, you get to survive so many situations, like ganks, all-in's, or even your own roams that can be counterganked plus, your Zhonyas will have such a lower cooldown down, as well as it will cost less gold. About Future's Market, the reason behind it is because I want to get my core items as soon as possible, so having that extra gold allows me to have roughly one extra Tome (or Longsword, if the enemy is AD) than the enemy mid laner. With this, if we happen to have a 4v4 fiesta in the bot lane, it is the difference between killing someone or seeing their ADC run away with 1 HP.

So, about the items

Well, for me, Malzahar 100% needs Morello. Behind or ahead, Morello is a must. As for the boots, I feel like CDR boots are better in general, unless you and your team are super far ahead and you feel like taking Sorcerer's. But, since I go transcendence, I usually go for the CDR boots.

You have the boots, Morello and Zhonyas. What now?
Well, I feel like it's really situational. If you are even/ahead, go for Rylai's. If you are behind, go for Liandry's. What I mean is: you still get them both, but the ordem of which you go for first, is what really matters. Because you are even/ahead, going for Rylai's will allow yourself to close that gap in team fights, getting those clutch 4-5 man slows with your Q, because since you are ahead, it's ok to give up a bit more damage in order to allow you and your team to easily burst the targets down. Naturally, if you are behind, you need to have the Liandry's for the extra magic pen and the damage per health %.

The end?

Thank you if you made it thus far. Let me know if you enjoyed it, and keep in mind it's my first guide, so I'm open to all kinds of criticism. So, if you have any questions or anything to add/point out, just let me know.

Thank you very much for your time, and I wish you the best luck on that SoloQ grind for season 8. :)
