There used to be so many Malzahar's in streams, high ranked and championships' games, as he was such a good pick and an overall excellent member of a team, with excellent AoE, a huge silence, and a long rage suppress. He also seemed to dominate a lane, which makes me ask: Why dont we see Malzahar?

Was it when Annie was buffed? When Brand came out to rape? When Orianna busted with her ridiculous range?

Useful criticism is greatly welcome.

He got some nerfs and his appearance against Brand&Annie&Orianna IS not the best.
U cant defeat them all, because of your nerfs (so many are thinking).
U know what kind of champs was played before? More Squishy ones, i think, then after some patches Bruisers got stronger and making it difficult to kill them

his range is low to actually harass anyone in mid,unless they try to poke you at close range,only then you may get a kill,also yeah he's an awesome champion and a bruiser stomper but he's not really easy to operate with.
Also just to note that he was viable b4 brand's release as he completely outshines him atm.

You answered your question: Annie has gotten better and Brand + Ori > Malz
Also he's the only one of those 4 which can't defend himself. Yes, you deal quite a decent dmg but without a stun (Annie+Brand), slow or ms boost like Ori he's just a friggin moving bathtube.

Imo, that's his biggest issue. Not very mobile + his ult is his only defense though also his best offense.

There is this item called quick silver sash + a lot of gangplanks around making him fairly useless.

Malzahar got a little nerf in dmg.
Especially in higher elo and tournament hes actually not that strong. His long range suppress makes him an easy focus for enemy team. He cannot move so anyone who has that in mind prepares some good position, waits for him to ult and the team will rush him and burst that malz down since he cannot move for the same time that he suppresses 1 enemy.

Its not that hes weak, but after that dmg nerf there are just other mages more viable than him.

Imo, when comparing to current ap picks, he doesn't do enough aoe damage. sure he can kill a single opponent in a teamfight, but after he has used his ulti, he is pretty useless. Plus, he is easily targetable while using his ulti.
