Eye of Destruction will make landing Arcanopulse easier as the target will be slowed.

Advice to Win Against Dr. Mundo

Try casting Ignite when Dr. Mundo uses Sadism to negate a large portion of its healing.

Try to coordinate high-damage abilities with your allies right after Dr. Mundo uses his ultimate, but if you're unable to kill him quickly with burst he will heal through the damage.
