Additional Malzahar Build Insights

LoL Malzahar players may find him to be a challenging champ to build out properly. You'll see that his build changes when he is fighting either diversified or highly focused team compositions, meaning you shouldn't take the same Malzahar build every single round of League of Legends

The most important items to use in your champion's build are: Liandry's Anguish, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Those who included these pieces in their builds had a much higher winrate than players who went for other Malzahar builds. Likewise, if you are playing a varied enemy team arrangement, you should strongly consider getting yourself the Sorcery, and Domination runes. In recent matches, he won the largest number of his matches when using these runes.
