3 gold lane mage heroes who can destroy any marksman heroes in Mobile Legends

Lylia

Gold lane mage hero Lylia has been rising in popularity ever since the gold lane marksman meta developed.

Her skills are great at punishing mispositioned enemies. Coupled with her burst potential, she is a solid pick against squishy heroes.

Indonesian analyst Mochammad Ryan “KB” Batistuta is also of the opinion that Lylia is a counter to almost all marksmen in the Land of Dawn.

Pharsa

Next on the list is Pharsa. Even though the Wings of Vengeance is usually played in the mid lane, she can also work well in the gold lane thanks to her long-ranged skills such as Feathered Airstrike.

What makes her even more powerful in the gold lane is her mobility, which works wonders if the enemy gold laner is without hard crowd control support.

Valentina

The most banned in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang so far, Valentina is perfect as a gold lane mage hero as she can work around any marksman in the game.
