His ultimate ability, Vengeance Flame, removes almost all debuffs, allowing him to cast enhanced spells if he gets initiated on. Coupled with his passive skill, Ashing, he deals a lot of damage per second in team fights.
There are, however, a handful of heroes who can effectively expose his weaknesses.

You can use it to narrow the gap against him, and avoid Searing Torrent. Even if you get pushed back, you can still close in by teleporting to the shadow near him.
Hit him with Ninjutsu: Phantom Shuriken and basic attacks to proc the Ninjutsu: Trace of Shadow passive. When the Shadow Mark reaches full stacks, take him down using the Ougi: Shadow Kill ultimate.
If he uses Winter Truncheon to counter Shadow Kill, wait it out and eliminate him with the Phantom Shuriken, which has a low cooldown and damage that stacks, along with basic attacks.
The only debuff that cannot be removed by Valir’s ultimate is suppression, which Kaja possesses in his ultimate, Divine Judgment.
As Kaja, choose Sprint or Flicker for your battle spell to easily close the distance against him. Make sure to cast Divine Judgment on him using the Hero Lock feature in the controls settings, then drag him to your allies using Lightning Bomb.

If you have a magic burst item build, you have the potential to solo kill Valir. Hide in the bush and wait for him to use the Searing Torrent, then execute your skill combo.
If you’re a roamer, make sure that your teammates are nearby when you initiate.
Among the few heroes who have abilities with suppression effect, Franco has the one with the longest duration when he uses his Bloody Hunt ultimate.
Flicker is a must for you to close in on Valir and hold him down in place. Coordinate with your allies to quickly burst him down.

You can also pull him in with the Iron Hook, although this is a less reliable initiation. You’ll need to put in a lot of practice time to increase your hook accuracy — plus a good Valir player can easily avoid getting pulled with a perfectly timed Vengeance Flame.
