Counters to Nasus?

He's so stupid in laning phase. Who beats him?

High damage and dueling.

Darius usually does well in my experience, as does Renekton.

I would pick a Rumble against him if it were up to me though.

Early-game bullies that rely on abilities rather than auto-attacks.

I don't play Garen but he seems like a great counter on paper. Cleanse slow, silence and then spin the **** outta Nasus. Low harass means that Garen will always be near max HP. He also has no mana so he can harass at will.

Renekton - the moment Nasus gets a chain vest, he out sustains Renekton. No.
Darius - same, and nasus ult > Darius ult. No.
Rumble - yes, with risk of pushing.

Rumble is absolute hard counter.

Fizz can also destroy Nasus.
If you max W first, you AA a lot harder than Nasus and also destroy his sustain. Rush armor/ap plate thing and mercs. You win trades simply by rightclicking him and if he ever gets advantage, Q and E away from him and he cant catch you.

I have a tough time as Nasus vs heavy harassing ranged champs and really bursty caster types.

Riven and Garen are good IMO since they are manaless and bursty. To trade evenly, Nasus will have to sacrifice Q'ing a creep so even trades will eventually let a riven or Garen come out ahead. Also if you pick Garen, rank up q before e since Nasus can just wither and run from that until it's on cd. Also do your best to make good use of the AA reset on q for trades.
