*NOTE : all the items and abilities build are the best for the sake of the combo not in general games, so they might be very bad in a normal game when you are playing without the combo.

Pros and cons

Pros: pretty good magical damage and physical damage with attack speed, and more than enough disables

Cons: pretty squishy, die very fast

Combo best teammates

very important to take a tank with this combo since its too squishy

Something like AXE, TIDE HUNTER, CENTUR, CLOCK…..etc

Combo best counters

Anti-mage: magic resistance + mana burn + scepter’s effect
Doom: ulti counters lina very hard
Spectre: low health bane and lina ezy kills with damage reflex
Chaos knight: illusions + high damage
Pugna: nether ward deals damage equal to the damage multiplier times the mana spent
Silencer: useless bane, lina no spells, if she has no attack speed already she will be useless too


Combo Best against:

Timbersaw: even thought he is tanky against physical damage, but he can do anything with magical damage + alot of disables can counter him

Ursa: useless hero against many disables + even if he gets bkb late, bane ulti goes throw bkb and lina scepter also

Phoenix: lina attack speed makes his ulti useless

Omniknight: he can e annoying if he is protecting his core, but alone he can do nothing

Winter wyvern: useless against magical damage
