Summon Voidling

Passive

After casting 4 spells, Malzahar summons a voidling for 21 seconds. Voidlings have 200+(50*level) health and 20+(5*level)+(100% bonus AD) attack damage. After 7 seconds, the voidling grows, gaining 50% increased armor and base attack damage. After 14 seconds, the voidling gains attack speed.

Armor: 30 (45 after 7 seconds)
Magic resistance: 50
Attack speed: 0.831 (1.496 after 14 seconds)
Movement speed: 451

Voidlings prioritize the target of Nether Grasp, then enemies suffering from the most recent Malefic Visions. If there are no targets affected by Malefic Visions, it will attack Malzahar's target.

Counter Tips

Voidlings last 21 seconds - it's good to keep a counter on how long he will have his pet.
Avoid being next to a minion marked by Malzahar's Malefic Visions - as it may spread onto you!
Buying a Quicksilver Sash will let you stop him from suppressing you with his ultimate.
