Bad against...[]

Axe icon.png
  • Unleash ensures that Axe's Counter Helix procs many times, even if he is stunned by Dispose.
    • Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard allows Counter Helix to reduce the attack damage of anyone it strikes. Combined with Unleash causing to proc frequently, Marci will not be dealing significant damage as she attacks Axe over time.
  • Axe doesn't worry about the damage from Unleash if he activates Berserker's Call beforehand. If he had activated Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail or Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir (or even both) as Marci attacks him, he will turn Unleash's high attack speed and damage against her.
  • Usually, Axe would prefer to jump on his opponent to be more effective. Rebound does Axe a favor, bringing Marci within his most effective range.
Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Rupture ruins her only movement ability, Rebound. Combined with its high movement speed and her being unable to interrupt it once its cast, using it under the effects of Rupture will surely deal incredibly immutable damage, if not kill her.
    • As a Strength hero, Marci naturally has high HP. Rupture's initial damage uses her high HP as a catalyst to deal damage depending on her current health, dealing a good amount of damage if she's full HP or forcing her to stop if she's low.
  • With Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, Bloodrage will now deal pure damage and lifesteal based on the opponent's max health. Her high HP as a Strength hero ensures that Bloodseeker will always deal significant attack damage and sustain himself a lot whenever he attacks Marci.
  • If Marci doesn't build Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, Bloodseeker's Blood Rite will prevent her from using all of her spells which she relies quite heavily on. Her only dispel is tied to Unleash which gets disabled, and the spell immunity from her level 20 Sidekick talent doesn't remove it if she tries to save a teammate from being silenced.
Dark Willow icon.png
  • Bramble Maze will very likely catch Marci in a fight or midair, disabling Marci's chasing/fleeing ability.
  • Shadow Realm prevents Marci from bursting Willow down since she relies on physical attacks and unit target spells. With Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter, Willow can hit Marci while Marci can't hit Willow.
  • Bedlam and Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity allows Willow to manfight if Marci initiates with Rebound.
  • Terrorize and Cursed Crown combo can waste Marci's ultimate for almost half of its duration.
Death Prophet icon.png
  • Spirit Siphon exploits her naturally high HP to deal a good amount of DPS. She may break the link with Rebound, but Silence covers that problem.
  • Marci's poor armor makes her vulnerable to Exorcism.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Lifestealer's Rage renders him immune to all of Marci's disables and magic damage for a good duration.
  • His passive Feast deals bonus damage based on the enemy's max health and heals for the same amount. As a tanky Strength hero, Marci's own strength will be her undoing as well.
Lycan icon.png
  • Howl reduces a good chunk of Marci's attack damage that she relies heavily on, and the armor reduction works better on her because of her low armor.
  • Shapeshift renders Lycan immune to slow from Rebound and Unleash.
Necrophos icon.png
Pangolier icon.png
  • Pangolier's Lucky Shot disarms her if procs making Unleash useless.
  • Swashbuckle have a lower cooldown than Rebound so Pangolier can out maneuver her quite easily.
Weaver icon.png
  • Marci's Dispose is blocked by Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere which is a common item for Weaver.
  • Shukuchi allows Weaver to escape from Rebound.
  • The Swarm beetle require 4 hits to kill. Weaver can use it on her when she use Unleash. This give Marci a hard choice: ignore The Swarm and her armor keep decreasing or kill the beetle and wasting 4 attacks of Unleash.

Others[]

Items[]

  • Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar protects the user from her magic damage and her various disables.
  • Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail ensures that Marci's attempts to attack the user doesn't go unpunished.
  • Heaven's Halberd icon.png Heaven's Halberd disarm can prevent Marci from using her right clicks, not to mention that it is undispellable.
  • Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade turns Marci ethereal, preventing her from using right clicks, slowing her down, and making her vulnerable to magic damage.
  • Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter protects the user from Marci's right clicks which makes up the bulk of her damage. Beware though, she can still affect you in this state with her Dispose and Rebound.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity, Wind Waker icon.png Wind Waker, Abyssal Blade icon.png Abyssal Blade, Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse, Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos and Gleipnir icon.png Gleipnir and other abilities that can stop Marci in her tracks and keep her in one place, while you run away and is prevented to use Rebound to catch up to you.
  • The Silence of Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence and Bloodthorn icon.png Bloodthorn prevents Marci of activating any of her abilities, that she heavily depends on to deal damage, catch enemys or run away.
  • Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade can withle down her low mana pool and deplete it

Good against...[]

Enchantress icon.png
  • Untouchable doesn't work against Unleash, as Marci gains 1000+ attack speed for the fury combo.
  • Enchantress' low health makes her a fragile target for Marci's damage blasts.
  • Marci can use Rebound on one of her enchanted creeps to easily reach the Enchantress and negate the bonus damage dealt by her Impetus. It helps that most of her best creeps have a low attack range, creating a makeshift bridge towards their master.
Mars icon.png
  • Rebound allows her to jump in or out of the Arena Of Blood. She can safe her allies from the Arena with Dispose as well.
Nature's Prophet icon.png
  • Sprout can't stop her to Rebound.
  • Treants can be used as targets for Rebound and Dispose as well.

Others[]

Marci can be effective against vulnerable squishy heroes that cannot deal with heroes that jump onto them - Sniper minimap icon.png Sniper, Drow Ranger minimap icon.png Drow Ranger, Lina minimap icon.png Linaetc.

Works well with...[]

Grimstroke icon.png
  • If he binds two heroes using his Soulbind, Marci can use Dispose to pull both enemy heroes to the same location (making it something like Vacuum or Reverse Polarity).
  • Marci is perfect target for Ink Swell to make a combo with Rebound and Dispose.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Lifestealer can Infest Marci as she leaps towards an enemy hero with Rebound during ganks, bringing them both towards the enemy. While Lifestealer is inside her, she gains bonus HP points that compliments her tankiness and bonus movement speed for more mobility.
  • Open Wounds gained from buying an Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard is a no-brainer with its powerful slow and shared lifesteal, adding to the duo's powerful array of disables and sustainability.
Lycan icon.png
  • Marci is a great recipient for Lycan's Wolf Bite. Simply cast it on her (especially when she has used Unleash) and watch as a mute whistling wolf that's immune to slows, has better mobility with haste and Rebound, can further buff herself with lifesteal from Sidekick and damage (granting a ridiculous total of 80% lifesteal or 130% with talents!), shreds through their enemies with multiple crits per second! Make sure to stay near Lycan to gain the lifesteal and shared healing if one requires it.
  • Howl reduces the opponent's armor and attack damage, making them easier to kill while making both Lycan and Marci harder to kill.
  • Lycan himself and his wolves give herself a boost with her Rebound. In turn, Lycan or his wolves gain bonus movement speed outside of Shapeshift, allowing them to catch up during ganks.
Snapfire icon.png
  • Snapfire can buy Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter to gain Gobble Up. Casting it on Marci allows her to easily reach the target while saving the use of Rebound for later.
  • She works very well with the chain stuns that Snapfire provides. Her Firesnap Cookie and the stun gained from an Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard-upgraded Scatterblast stun can be synergized with her Dispose to provide a long time chain stun into the death of their opponent.
  • If Snapfire choses left talent at level 20 she can be perfect target for Sidekick to focus down 1 target.
Troll Warlord icon.png
  • If Troll bought an Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, he can use his Rampage to increase Marci's attack speed outside of her Unleash or provide status resistance.
  • Troll will have a secondary source of sustainable lifesteal if Marci commits to buffing him with Sidekick.
Ursa icon.png
  • Ursa gains a secondary source of lifesteal and damage with Sidekick, allowing him to shred his enemies and sustain himself further and take down Roshan faster.
  • Marci can Rebound off of Ursa to slow a distant enemy, while Ursa catches up with the bonus movement speed. She may use her Dispose to throw an enemy towards Ursa if they're close enough.
