Flash: flash is a great speel to malzahar.He can do a good combo with this spell and with Ignite. That combo is: Flash, then ulti, then ignite and then malefic visions.
Passive: Summon Voiding.
After casting 4 spells, Malzahar summons an uncontrollable Voidling to engage enemy units for 21 seconds. Voidlings have 200 + 50 x lvl Health and 20 + 5 x lvl Damage.
Voidlings Grow after 7 seconds (+50% Damage/Armor), and Frenzy after 14 seconds (+100% Attack Speed).
Voidlings attack the target affected by Malzahar's most recently cast Malefic Visions.
In the begining of the game in your base use call of the voide 4 times to gain your passive. Your passive is realy good for the first blood.

Explination of items:
I start with Rabadon´s Deathcap beacause it have very ap and his passive is amazing, then i use Ionian boots, beacause cdr is very good for malzahar´s ulti, after the boots i use rylay´s for more life, ap and to give slow.Ater that i use void staf for magic penetration and then the other items are optional. If you are playing against a team of tanks do a Deathire Grasp.
In the sumener spells i take flash to escape and to use the ulti and ignite is a good combination with malefic visions and with the ulti.
Rabadon´s Deathcape;Rylay´s; Void Staff
If you want cdr you can buy the ionian boots but if you want more damage you can buy sorcer´s.
If you want cdr and more damage, you can buy sorcer´s shoes and morello´s evil tome.
Zhonya´s Hourglass, Banshe´s Vale and Abyssal Scepter.
Usually I dont stack, beacause malzahar is squishi and it is easy to kill him, but if you feel confidente of your game you can take stacks.
Insted of stacks I take Rylay´s. Rylay´s have a great passive that slow the enemies and have 80 ap.
Offense: 9 Defense: 0 Utility:21
Magic penetration and ap runes are great for malzahar.
I recomend to do all the marks of magic penetration and all the quinteness, glyph and seal of ability power.
I level more malefic visions, beacause it is really great to farm and to kill with this skill in early game.
Usually I level more call of the void, beacause it geaves a awsome damage, but if I play against very tanks after malefic visions I level more Null zone. This speel take a great damage to tanks.
PROS AND CONS:
Farmer. Malzahar is a great farmer. Farming for malzahar is really great, beacause he can restaure mana and gain very gold.
In early game you shoul go mid and farm a lot.
Range. His skills have very range and thast´s good.
Stun. His ulti give stun, does a lot of damage and it have very range.
No mana problems. He doesn´t have mana problems, beacause he can restaure mana with malefic visions when he kills any unit.
Squishy. In early game and mid game malzahar is very squishy, but with all the items he isn´t.
