Bad against...[edit]

Alchemist icon.png
  • With Greevil's Greed, Alchemist can farm Tombstone zombies and gain a significant gold advantage.
Earthshaker icon.png
  • Zombies summoned from Tombstone will amplify the damage of Echo Slam due to them increasing the echo damage.
Gyrocopter icon.png
  • Flak Cannon enables Gyrocopter to clear the zombies easily.
Luna icon.png
  • Luna has Moon Glaives and Lunar Blessing to help her destroy Tombstone, this becomes more effective if Luna is equipped with Manta Style icon.png Manta Style.
  • Defending with Zombies from Tombstone against Luna is not a good idea because Eclipse will strike only Undying.
Necrophos icon.png
  • Necrophos is a dangerous opponent to go against with. Regardless of how many strength Undying has gained from Decay, Necrophos can finish off Undying with Reaper's Scythe once Undying's HP falls below certain threshold.
  • Heartstopper Aura can effectively reduce Undying's HP in a fight.
Silencer icon.png
  • Arcane Curse can effectively discourage Undying from casting his spammable spells in a team fight. Or Undying will have to suffer more damage and slow due to the penalty duration of Arcane Curse.
  • Last Word and Global Silence are able to silence Undying for up to 6 seconds, preventing Undying from gaining strength and healing his ally or himself.



  • Manta Style icon.png Manta Style is useful to destroy the Tombstone.
  • Necronomicon 1 icon.png Necronomicon can also help take down the Tombstone.
  • Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence works very well against a spellcaster like Undying.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse makes Undying vulnerable to attacks and spells, because he relies heavily on his spells to stay alive in a team fight.
  • Crimson Guard icon.png Crimson Guard makes Undying Tombstone zombies' damage negligible in team fights with its active.

Good against...[edit]

Spectre icon.png
  • Spectre must chase for kills and relies on movement speed for mobility in fights, and has no way to counter the Tombstone zombies.
  • The potency of Soul Rip can be increased from nearby illusions, so Undying can use Haunt against Spectre.
  • Early game Decay will make Spectre easy to shut down in lane.
Ogre Magi icon.png
  • Undying saps strength from heroes with Decay. Ogre Magi's high strength gain will allow undying to steal more and more strength, becoming stronger with each use.
  • Due to the Strength steal from Decay, Undying is normally very tanky, and has high health. Making it harder for Ogre Magi to kill him.
Centaur Warrunner icon.png
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • Winter Wyvern cannot handle the Zombies created by Undying's Tombstone very well. In most situations, Zombies will have more movement speed than her.
  • Undying can gain one or two easy Decay stacks on an ally in Cold Embrace. The ally will still take the damage as well.
Sven icon.png
  • Undying can use Decay not only to reduce Sven's maximum health, but also to reduce the damage he can output with his ultimate.
  • Zombies spawned by Tombstone together with Flesh Golem slow Sven down significantly. Landing Sven's powerful but somewhat slow right-click on Tombstone would be a waste.
Bristleback icon.png
  • Undying's Decay is a dangerous trait against Bristleback, as it makes him more vulnerable.
  • Undying's Tombstone together with Flesh Golem can slow Bristleback down significantly.


Works well with...[edit]

Broodmother icon.png
  • Broodmother with large number of Spiderlings can easily ensure Soul Rip to deal maximum heal/damage.
  • Broodmother and her Spiderlings are able to slow enemy heroes with Incapacitating Bite and Poison Sting, enabling Undying and his zombies to catch up.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
  • Arcane Aura can solve Undying's mana problem. Undying can have sufficient mana to harass enemy heroes when laning and cast spells during team fight.
  • Crystal Nova and Freezing Field provide respectable AoE movement speed and attack speed slow. This synchronizes well with Tombstone and Flesh Golem.
Naga Siren icon.png
  • When enemy heroes are affected by Naga Siren's Song of the Siren, Tombstone zombies will still spawn beside the enemy heroes. This effectively increases the number of zombies in a fight.
  • Ensnare prevents a fleeing hero from escaping, making the hero more prone to zombie attack.
Warlock icon.png
  • Fatal Bonds amplifies the damage of Undying's AoE spells.
  • Upheaval is a strong AoE slow that can kite enemy heroes from approaching and damaging Undying's Tombstone. Also, Upheaval makes escaping from zombies attack an impossible task.
  • Warlock's Golem can distract enemy heroes from attacking Tombstone. The slow from Undying's Flesh Golem also synchronizes well with Warlock's Golem.
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • Winter's Curse can group up and disable the entire enemy team, allowing undying to steal strength from all enemies at once, and allowing more Tombstone Zombies to spawn before they are killed.
Lich icon.png
  • Frost Blast and Chain Frost can help undying to slow his enemies, allowing him to steal strength more easily. Furthermore, these slows stack with Tombstone and Flesh Golem .
Witch Doctor icon.png
  • Undying's nuking abilities makes it easy to kill targets affected by Maledict.
