    Sven and Rubick. Rube initiates with telekinesis and Sven attacks while the target is in the air. Rubick throws the enemy backward (in the direction of your tower, so they have to run past sven to get back to their tower) and Sven uses Storm Hammer and activates his E for chasing if need be. Chances are the enemy will use a stun/slow to escape, which Rubick can steal, allowing for yet another disable. This will almost always result in a lot of kills, sven and rube winning the lane, and sven going on to become a carry through the midgame.

    Don't know if anyone said this but Slardar and Vengeful Spirit.
    Vengeful Spirit stuns, Slardar runs up and uses his stun, then Slardar rapes due to mass armor reduction/physical damage buffs.

    I played Viper / Veno with a friend. I have to admit, it was pretty hilarious. It rapes squshies so hard, you can't believe it.

    Not sure how viable it is, but the harass you can get out of this lane is incredible. Also kills on a lane like that are very easy.

    undying and wisp

    near minion wave, wisp can tether to undying, have undying soul rip wisp, congratulations you are now both healed

    your tower diving ability is nuts and your lane sustain is absurdly strong, plus you can push rather easily

    Edited:

    also global presence pushing once you're at 6 pretty much guarantees you winning all the lanes w/ undying

    Ursa + Disruptor. If an enemy is trapped within Kinetic Field, Ursa pretty much has a guaranteed kill. Thunder Strike also easily finishes off enemies that try to escape with low HP.
    Basically, any long duration disable (Rubick, Veno, Wisp etc.)+Ursa ruins enemies that get close.

    Interceptor? And yeah, any kinetic field plus aimed/strong AoE skill is pretty much an instant win in teamfights.

    Funny combo, but not the best you could think of, yet quite powerful in early game is Dark Seer and Gondar (or any other invisibility hero). You just put Ion Shell on the other hero, wait for HP to come down a bit and just gank. Easy kills, because usually people don't realize what is happening.
    I actually tried this in a pub game and I made a sniper have Wraith band and boots 30 minutes in

    I can testify to this, a friend and I managed to notch up 8 kills on my Viper during the laning phase. One time Shadow Demon died, ported back in and we just melted him in about 2 seconds. It's ridiculous.

    Veno and Undying. This is a reliable first blood almost every single time for my friends and I.
    Our record is 00:51 first blood in lane.


    Decay, slow, dead. It works replacing Veno with Disruptor, too.

    Luna is a good mid, seeing as she hits like a truck, and has the fastest base movespeed so you'd get to the rune fasters than most heroes; unless they have a blink. Getting to lvl 6 quickly for eclipse can really wreck a lane/mid (especially if he's going for a rune).

    For laning, I guess any ranged babysitter would work; like cm, lich, etc. The damage aura makes their harass hit a lot harder aswell.

    Rubick and Juggernaut, once you hit level 3 you can easily take a few kills.

    Once juggernaut has level 2 spin and you have either level 2 telekinesis or Fade bolt you have the damage to clean most people up.

    If you lift up someone with telekinesis and allow juggernaut to spin underneath them, and there you go.

    Disruptor, Sand King, Undying, Zeus and Shadow fiend made funny team fights. Really funny ones

    No idea about lanes besides Sand King + any ranged carry with slow down

    Rubick can work like Shadow Demon for setting up easy timed spells (Split Earth, Torrent)
    Slardar is pretty good with any ranged hero that has a stun or a slow. Vengeful Spirit might be one of the best since she amplifies physical damage.

    For Rubick: any carry that needs a stunner
    For Slardar: Any support that has a stun, special mention for Keeper of the Light that allows you early crushes.

    I was in a game today where our bot lane was Naga Siren and Shadow Demon. Seems like they took huge shits on them down there cuz they got tons of kills, against Omniknight and Juggernaut. I didn't look too closely but as I understand it, Naga would snare them and Shadow Demon would just stack up his poison and spam his spells as they couldn't run away.

    I like to go keeper of the light and any carry with a stun (like skeleton king, sven or chaos knight)
    Carry stuns, keeper casts illuminate while the carry right clicks the enemy to death
    Also mana leak is pretty good to keep enemies in place, or stun them if they are stupid enough to move

    Tried this out with a friend today. The first game was a little harsh against two ranged heroes, but we still won the lane. Second game was against two melees and we simply steam rolled them.

    Extremly strong combination, I have to say, but still counterable if you're not an idiot.

    Not necessarily a great laning combo, but when Lyca gets picked I usually go Vengeful Spirit.

    By just roaming besides Lyca with the basic farm items, and MAYBE even applying a stun to the first enemy hero you meet, Lyca and his wolves will fucking destroy you.

    (Point here; +30% dmg from Lyca to himself, +36% dmg from Venge, +15% dmg from Vlad's)

    Dark Seer + Clinkz

    Ion shell on Clinkz.. Skeleton Walk in a circle around enemy.. When low health Clinkz finishes with searing arrow for quick kill.

    Rinse and Repeat.
