Strategy

Keep an eye on Bash of the Deep charges and preferably bash the opponents.

Use Slithereen Crush and Bash of the Deep to secure ranged creep last hits.

Run through the river as much as you can when you are moving around due to extra movement speed.

Build up Bash of the Deep charges up to 3 ideally, before making a move or gank attempt.

Once you have Blink Dagger, make use of it before opponents are able to see it in your inventory.

In fights, play around your right-clicking core. Jump and Corrosive Haze the target he is able to hit.

Slardar enables the team to take Roshan down fairly early due to Corrosive Haze.

Counter Strategy

After every 3rd hit, Slardar will have Bash of the Deep charged up. Keep yourself at distance.

Be aware of Slardar's Blink Dagger timing. Look to cancel his Dagger in the fights.

Items that provide dispel are great against Slardar's Corrosive Haze.

Armor items are great against Slardar's damage output and armor reduction.

Slardar lineups are able to take Roshan early on. Ward around Roshpit and check.

    Lore

    Slardar is a Slithereen, one of the Deep Ones, guardian of a vast network of sunken cities and the ancient riches buried within them. In the lightless gulf of the deepest ocean abysses, the Slithereen Guard patrols secret treasure rooms, ever vigilant against the subaqueous thieves sent into the deeps by covetous dryland sorcerers. He is utterly loyal, and his taciturn nature hides deep knowledge of the most secret places of the sea. He rises to the shallows in spite of the pain caused him by brightness, to commit reconnaissance, to make sure no one is conspiring against the depths, and sometimes in relentless pursuit of the rare few who manage to steal off with an item from the Sunken Treasury. Because he has spent his whole life at great pressure, under tremendous weight of the sea, Slardar the Slithereen Guard is a creature of immense power.
