Hero Strategy

Make sure camps are open for pulling as the lane will likely push due to AoE damage of your spells.

Jakiro is tanky, so look to soak up damage for your core in the lane.

Ice Path provides vision so you can use it to scout pillars for wards and Roshan pit.

Jakiro is great at defending towers due to Macropyre and your cores can split push in meantime.

Use Liquid Fire and Frost to apply pressure on enemy buildings.

In teamfight, take your time to land the most impactful Ice Paths and Macropyre.

When not much is happening on the map, you can split push easily without even showing yourself.

Pick up Aghanim's Shard at minute 15 as it provides additional control and damage boost.

You can carry late game fights by nicely positioning Macropyre improved by Aghanim's Scepter.

Counter Strategy

Cast point on Jakiro's spells are long, so you can possibly dodge them.

Avoid standing beside your laning partner against Dual Breath and Liquid Fire.

Jakiro is great at destroying towers with Liquid Fire. Organize defense quickly.

Jakiro is great at defending towers alone. Jump him or consider glyphing the wave.

Avoid fighting in choke spots and clumping up against Ice Path and Macropyre combo.

Magic resistance items are great against Jakiro.
