Playing well isn't reliable in pubs, is there a pick or item that's a hard counter?

Doom Bringer counters everyone.

Silences are good. Orchid and Sheepstick are items that are obviously helpful for this purpose. Riki's Smokescreen is a decent choice, and his invisibility allows him to easily gank AM while he farms the jungle.

The best counter is to push hard so he doesn't even have time to farm, but that requires more of a team focus. Maybe a strong enough pusher like Leshrac or Broodmother can do enough solo to cause issues.

Are you trolling? Anti-Mage hard counters Skeleton King. He takes your mana and you can never use your ultimate!

Buy a magic wand and use it right before you die.

Anti-mage WILL have a hard counter when Shadow Demon releases, given that Shadow Demon completely curbstomps hard carries by making them shoot themselves and their teammates in the foot.

Max charges gives you 225 HP / Mana. That extra HP means it'll take AM probably an extra two hits to kill you, due to the extra HP. Two hits burns 128 mana. Since Reincarnation costs 140 Mana, you still won't have enough to trigger it. And that's if you have max charges.

Bat Rider can lock him down with his lasso or pretty much any long CC... like a Sheepstick or OM.

Armlet+Soul Ring SK can go toe-to-toe with AM and live/murder AM. Magic wand is just for backup.
