Zlapped: Hey guys, and welcome to episode number 30. Today’s question is by Korvhora.

Korvhora asks, “What do you consider the best counter to a Deadlift plus Demented Shaman lane?”

That is a very good question. Deadlift, of course, just got recently changed but I would say something like a Monarch and Moraxus would be a very good counter to the old Deadlift.

Deadlift just recently got changed, so I honestly don’t know for the moment, but if we go back to when you asked this question (which was before the change of the hero), I would definitely say, like, Moraxus and Monarch because Moraxus was able to eat up the Deadlift queue, which allowed him to never die, and a Monarch heal would be able to sustain them in lane.

And I don’t think Monarch or Moraxus would counter them by any means, but they would be able to lane without feeding and/or dying. So I think that’s a decent lane to put up against them – or was. For the moment, I honestly don’t know what to answer you.
