R - Passive - Marked Prey - An enemy affected by Silecay's abilities will cause them to have a chance to miss attacks, as well as Silecay gaining bonus damage on that target. (Each spell can cause a stack. The same spell will not refresh or add another stack until its stack duration is over.) (Can affect multiple targets.)

Bonus Damage per stack - 35/55/75 (105/165/225 Total bonus Damage with all three stacks.)
Enemy Miss Chance per stack - 5%/10%/15% (15%/30%/45% chance to miss with all three stacks.)
Stack Duration - 10/14/18

Well, there's my second hero idea posted here. Mostly thought of this as a ganker type hero due to the bonus damage he can gain on a single target. Please leave your opinions/suggestions in the replies. This was sort of rushed so if anything is confusing please tell me. Thanks for reading.

This like a cross between slardar, venomancer, and bristleback. I think he might be overpowered, but can't really tell.
I got to Notable, Thanks!

Venomous Strike is a less-powerful version of Poison Attack, but its because of his ultimate, and I'll get to that. The mana cost should be reduced to 12/14/16/18. This guy doesn't have the mana pool to support many attacks. You could actually make it a passive, but its up to you.

So, constrict disables both you and the enemy, or just the enemy, or just you? Anyway, what I suggest is that when you constrict an enemy, he is rooted and you are not. However, your entire body cannot move too far from the cast point for the duration (like Slark's Pounce). Basically, what this means is that it is good for picking off lone heroes and disabling key auto-attackers in teamfights. I think the cooldown is too long, though. Make it 30/25/20/15. The mana cost is also very high, and this guy is quite a dumb one (no intelligence :P). The mana cost scaling should be decreased to 90/100/110/120.

Venom Shot is kinda like Bounty Hunter's Track, but it only gives bonuses to yourself and costs a **** ton of mana with a long cooldown. The mana cost should be decreased to a flat 70. This skill is more for powerful single-target pickoffs, so the cooldown can be reduced to 32/26/20/14. The rest is fine.

Marked prey is not that overpowered, cause apparently, there can only be a maximum of 3 stacks on the enemy (when all his skills are used). The miss chance should be reduced to 5/10/15%, and the stack duration should be reduced to 10/14/18. Make the miss chance universal as well, meaning that he will miss when trying to hit your teammates.

All in all, this hero is meant for single-target pickoffs, and requires a lot of tunnel vision when fighting. In teamfights, all he has to do is disable the auto-attacked with his constrict, activating a BKB (if he has one), and then beating the hell out it that carry. Even if you don't kill him, the miss chance and slows from your skills would screw him up in fights. This hero is also good for chasing thanks to his Venom Shot. Good concept, but this hero might struggle against nukers.

Thanks, I've changed some aspects of his abilities, mostly based off of your suggestions. I feel they are more reasonable now. I wasn't really taking into account what little intelligence the hero had.
