General Strategy

Counter him by

  • Any kind Silence skill during his Rot makes him unable to turn it off, possibly doing considerable damage.

Watch out for

  • Pudge is a ganker, and a good Butcher player will start ganking at least at level 6. Watch out for a missing Pudge, call miss and play cautious.
  • If a Butcher player is about to die, he can use Rot to kill himself, denying you the gold. Time your last hit well.

Pudge is a tank, Lifestealer is an anti-tank, it's a simple as that, probably the best counter against Pudge.
Feast can chew through any HP pool while healing, as most HP he has, better for you. All the damage that Pudge can do came from his skills, with Rage activated can't will not be able to do any damage to you, but take care, he will not deal any damage to you, but he still being able to Hook you and disable you with Dismember. Open wounds will prevent him from escaping and giving you an extra Lifesteal for better survavibility. If you find yourself getting damaged, Infest a creep and go again, remember that if you want to get heal with Infest you must use it in an enemy creep. He'll need help to be able to beat you.

A Pudge who has to lane against an Outworld Devourer is no joke. When Pudge casts one hook, he doesn't have mana for a second one, with Astral Imprisonment this becomes crippling.
As an Outworld Devourer, you can really keep a Pudge down in the lane. His hooks costs a lot of mana, and with Astral Imprisonment you can assure that he never has mana to cast any hooks. Your pure damage orb effect does very decent damage against him in all stages of the game and your Ultimate punishes a hero like Pudge who has low intelligence.

Your Last Word skill can prevent him from using his Hook/Dismember/Rot combo. Curse of the silent is an excellent harassment tool as it will keep his HP and mana low. Your Ultimate can disrupt his combo on cue or make him die to Rot since he can't turn it off.

Observer Ward
Pudge is one of the best gankers in the game, constant vision of possible hook-spots is critical in keeping Pudge from snowballing
Try and place wards on every location where he might pass to gank or stand and wait for a hook. Pudge is a snowball hero, meaning he needs a good early and mid game to stay relevant. Good warding and dewarding prevents him from getting easy snipes on your more squishy heroes.
