Hero Strategy

Tar bomb is your main tool for harrasing in the lane try to use it when you can get a lot of hits on the enemy.

Check opponent's inventory frequently for detection.

Only fight when death pact is up in the laning stage and fights.

Once you have Desolator, you can look for kills and get involved in fights.

Avoid passing by the typical sentry spots like pillars and active rune spots.

In fights try to focus targets that you can burst such as supports or squishy heros without escapes.

Use the Bloodthorn power spike to put pressure on the map by getting kill after kill on isolated enemy heroes.

Pick up Aghanims Shard later in the game to have AoE damage in teamfights as well as instant waveclear with Burning Barrage.

Counter Strategy

Bring a sentry to the lane and dust later on for Clinkz.

Try to go on clinkz when his death pact expires or if he is too far forward.

Make sure to always carry dust vs clinkz and use sentrys on the popular fighting/farming spots.

Pair observer wards with sentries to spot Clinkz's movements.

Carry detection on multiple heroes against Clinkz.

Armor items are good against Clinkz.

Evasion piercing items are good against Clinkz's Strafe.
