Counter Tips

Always keep an eye out for a puff of smoke in the fog of war - this means Shaco is nearby.
It's usually a great idea to buy pink wards so that Shaco can't sneak in whereever he wants.
If he uses his Deceive to enter fights, he won't be able to use it again for a while. Try turning and focusing him if possible.
