Stalks invisibly to ambush lone enemies

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 heroes without escapes.

Use the Daedlus 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.

Lore

At the base of the Bleeding Hills stretches a thousand-league wood, a place called The Hoven, where black pools gather the tarry blood of the uplands, and the king-mage Sutherex sits in benevolent rule. Once a sworn protector of the Hoven lands, Clinkz earned a reputation for his skill with a bow. In the three-hundredth year of the king-mage, the demon Maraxiform rose from sixth hell to lay claim to the forest. In response, the king-mage decreed an unbreakable spell: to any who slew the demon would be granted Life Without End. Unaware of the spell, Clinkz waded into battle, defending his lands against the demon's fiery onslaught. Clinkz drove Maraxiform back to the gates of sixth-hell itself, where on that fiery threshold the two locked in a mortal conflict. Grievously wounded, the demon let out a blast of hellfire as Clinkz loosed his final arrow. The arrow struck the demon true as hellfire poured out across the land, lighting the black pools and burning Clinkz alive at the instant of the demon's death. Thus, the mage's spell took effect at the very moment of the archer's conflagration, preserving him in this unholy state, leaving him a being of bones and rage, caught in the very act of dying, carrying hell's breath with him on his journey into eternity.
