Bad against...[edit]

Brewmaster icon.png
  • Dispel Magic from Brewmaster Storm icon.png Storm instantly removes Guardian Angel from Omniknight's allies in its radius of effect.
Doom icon.png
  • Doom turns Omniknight into a walking creep, or completely takes out his buffed cores, also removing Guardian Angel in the process.
  • Doom pierces spell immunity from Repel.
  • Doom has access to Satyr Banisher's Purge, which allows him to remove Guardian Angel.
Invoker icon.png
  • Tornado dispels Guardian Angel from multiple targets.
  • EMP depletes Omniknight's already small mana pool.
  • Invoker's many disables keep Omniknight's team occupied until Guardian Angel times out.
Luna icon.png
  • Even if Eclipse is blocked by Repel, it won't be blocked by Guardian Angel, allowing Luna to finish off Omniknight's team while her team focuses on a single Repelled enemy.
Naga Siren icon.png
Naga Siren
  • Song of the Siren can be used to time out Guardian Angel, giving Naga Siren's team an easy opportunity to counter-initiate.
  • Since Song of the Siren doesn't affect spell immune units, it can be used to disable the rest of Omniknight's team while her team focuses on a single Repelled enemy.
Oracle icon.png
Outworld Devourer icon.png
Outworld Devourer
  • Arcane Orb's pure damage penetrates Guardian Angel's defense.
  • Outworld Devourer's intelligence steal is also devastating to Omniknight's already low mana pool.
Razor icon.png
Rubick icon.png
  • All of Omniknight's abilities are valuable for Rubick to Spell Steal, and Omniknight has no throwaway ability to cover his last used spell.
Shadow Demon icon.png
Shadow Demon
Silencer icon.png
  • Global Silence takes Omniknight out of the fight completely.
  • Glaives of Wisdom are a great harass vs Omniknight during the laning stages of the game, since it doesn't aggro creeps & ignores his high base armor. It deals pure damage, which means it can also go through Guardian Angel.
  • Silencer's intelligence steal can also cause Omniknight to falter in the early phases as it reduces his ability to use his spells.



Good against...[edit]

Axe icon.png
  • Omniknight's healing prevents allies from dropping low enough for Culling Blade. However, it can still go through all his buffs.
  • Axe also enjoys getting close to allied heroes in order to damage them with his Counter Helix, which can easily be punished by Purification.
Chaos Knight icon.png
Chaos Knight
  • Phantasms can be easily killed with Purification.
  • Guardian Angel works well against Chaos Knight's overwhelming reliance on physical burst damage.

Works well with...[edit]

Clockwerk icon.png
  • A Purification on Clockwerk while he's fighting inside Power Cogs will turn the fight in Clockwerk's favor.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
Crystal Maiden
  • Arcane Aura solves Omniknight's mana problems, and Omniknight can keep her protected in return with Repel and Guardian Angel during her Freezing Field. Her slows and root also pair well with Degen Aura and Purification.
Keeper of the Light icon.png
Keeper of the Light
Pudge icon.png
  • A successful Meat Hook is an easy set-up for a Purification.
  • Omniknight can also negate the self-damage of Rot with Repel.
Phantom Assassin icon.png
Phantom Assassin
  • Phantom Strike places Phantom Assassin in position Omniknight to follow up with an offensive Purification.
  • Repel can be used as an alternative to a Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, freeing up gold for Phantom Assassin to buy damage items.
