Anti-Mage

Popularity: #38

Ban Rank: #2

KDA Rank: #48

Slashes his foes with mana-draining attacks

Should Anti-Mage have the opportunity to gather his full strength, few can stop his assaults. Draining mana from enemies with every strike or teleporting short distances to escape an ambush, cornering him is a challenge for any foe.

Strategy

You can rush vanguard on tough lanes. Otherwise try to get away with cornucopia.

Hit opponents and burn their mana whenever you can, for example when they go for a last hit.

Play safe and acquire Battle Fury as early as possible. Your farming speed goes up exponentially with it.

Look around the map while you are farming to dodge the ganks but also to potentially snipe a kill with Mana Void.

Plant wards for yourself in the area you are farming.

Keep a lane pushed out to apply some pressure on the map. If you expect to be ganked, Blink into trees and teleport to the opposite side of the map.

With Manta Style you can play more actively and join most of the fights. Prioritize killing backliners and supports.

Wehenever your teammates die consider cutting a wave behind the opponents or push out some other lane.

Counter Strategy

Anti-Mage is a weak laner, so look to pressure him from the start

Look to spend your mana before it gets burned by Anti-Mage

Against Anti-Mage during the laning phase buy a Magic Stick or consider buying a Soul Ring to have mana for spells

Look to disrupt Anti-Mage's jungling by placing deep wards and smoking on him. Anti-Mage is weak until he gets Manta Style

Consider getting Boots of Travel on one of the cores to address Anti-Mange's split push playstyle

In team fights look to save the hero that Anti-Mage jumps on. But be careful as you might blow up too if you get too close to a Mana Voided hero

Anti-Mage is strong mid- to late-game as he can farm rapidly, but he is not that strong in very late game

    Lore

    The monks of Turstarkuri watched the rugged valleys below their mountain monastery as wave after wave of invaders swept through the lower kingdoms. Ascetic and pragmatic, in their remote monastic eyrie they remained aloof from mundane strife, wrapped in meditation that knew no gods or elements of magic. Then came the Legion of the Dead God, crusaders with a sinister mandate to replace all local worship with their Unliving Lord's poisonous nihilosophy. From a landscape that had known nothing but blood and battle for a thousand years, they tore the souls and bones of countless fallen legions and pitched them against Turstarkuri. The monastery stood scarcely a fortnight against the assault, and the few monks who bothered to surface from their meditations believed the invaders were but demonic visions sent to distract them from meditation. They died where they sat on their silken cushions. Only one youth survived--a pilgrim who had come as an acolyte, seeking wisdom, but had yet to be admitted to the monastery. He watched in horror as the monks to whom he had served tea and nettles were first slaughtered, then raised to join the ranks of the Dead God's priesthood. With nothing but a few of Turstarkuri's prized dogmatic scrolls, he crept away to the comparative safety of other lands, swearing to obliterate not only the Dead God's magic users--but to put an end to magic altogether.
