This is when the thread goes confusing.

Lifestealer late game.

Skywrath Mage early game.
Don't Worry, Be Happy

Late credits to Janitsu for the sig

Level 25 without any items of course, so heroes are at their full strength without items.

In that case, I restate to counter the late game Lifestealer:

Windranger(runner) Is a decent counter to him. 100% evasion, not too much fat for Lifestealer to nom on, a good stun (assuming Rage isn't up), and a decent nuke.

Windrunner counter: Tiny. His combo can easily kill her and if it doesn't, a single autoattack while she's stunned will finish her.

There's no earthy way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing, or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining, is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of Hell a-glowing? Is the grisly Reaper mowing?! YES! The danger must be growing! For the rowers keep on rowing! And there's certainly not showing ANY SIGNS THAT THEY ARE SLOWING!

Hit that Rep button, you know you want to.

Sadly, can't reuse LS. I would say... Juggernaut
Tiny's stun has a delay, Blade Fury is instant. Craggy Exterior doesn't work against Omnislash. Juggernaut's full combo would take Tiny down to well below half health, granted the fight takes place away from Tiny's creeps.

Pugna. Nether Ward makes it hard to use your spells. Since you're a farm-dependent melee hero, Nether Blast will make farming hard, and Decrepify renders your ultimate invalid.

Centaur Warrunner can burst down Pugna without using much mana and tank through both Nether Ward and a couple Nether Blasts. Stampede closes the distance and prevents Pugna from running.
