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 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
  • Guardian Angel does not offer protection from Eclipse, though it will negate damage from Moon Glaives.
Naga Siren icon.png
  • Song of the Siren can be used to time out Guardian Angel, giving Naga Siren's team an easy opportunity to counter-initiate.
Oracle icon.png
Outworld Devourer icon.png
  • 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.
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.
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
  • Phantasms can be easily killed with Purification.
  • Heavenly Grace dispels the stun from Chaos Bolt and the armor reduction from Reality Rift.
  • Guardian Angel works well against Chaos Knight's overwhelming reliance on physical burst damage.
Death Prophet icon.png
  • Exorcism's damage is blocked by Guardian Angel.
Juggernaut icon.png
Legion Commander icon.png
  • Both Guardian Angel and Purification are perfect counters against Duel.
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • Guardian Angel completely counters Winter's Curse if he is able to cast it.


Works well with...[edit]

Clockwerk icon.png
  • A Purification on Clockwerk while he is fighting inside Power Cogs will turn the fight in Clockwerk's favor.
  • Heavenly Grace dispels the stun from Overclocking while providing him with durability.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
  • Arcane Aura solves Omniknight's mana problems, and Omniknight can keep her protected in return with Heavenly Grace 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
Pudge icon.png
  • A successful Meat Hook is an easy set-up for a Purification.
  • Omniknight can also offset the self-damage of Rot with Heavenly Grace.
Storm Spirit icon.png
  • Ball Lightning let's Storm Spirit get close for an easy Purification.
