Notes

This build gives high power, lifesteal and a good balance of penetration. The only thing this build lacks is cooldown which we remedy late game with Chronos Pendant.
Late game you will sell your boots for Chronos pendant, enabling some extra cooldowns to go with your sprees of Spear of Desolation usage. The ordering of Sacrificial Shroud and Rod of Tahuti are interchangeable, I personally prefer to get Shroud first if I am level 20 by this point.

Notes

Thus build is very much like our Mid build except it is able to leverage the protections and abilities of Mantle of discord to really solidify your damage, and safety. Items such as Pridwen, Breastplate, divine ruin, pestilence and other items should be taken into consideration for counter building, however if everything goes well this is the go to for me.

Notes

You want to get Devour souls maxed at level 9. Meaning you will not level an ability at level 8.
While the second list is for facing gods like Guan, Bellona or Anubis to counter their channeling damage that they mainly use to clear wave.

Strong Against
HelPoseidonRaHeraKukulkanThe MorriganNu WaBellonaJanusZeusSkadiAh Muzen CabGuan Yu
Notes

Many of the gods Hades is good against hit one of two criteria; either they have a main damaging ability he can silence them out of such as Bellona and Guan, or they do not have the ability to escape his Ult except by Ulting, using Beads, or using their Aegis.

Weak Against
AnubisAgniChang'eBaba YagaNoxPersephoneOdinOsirisCerberusArachneHeimdallr
Notes

Many of these gods punish Hades for his aggressive nature. Built in anti-heal, self peel or the ability to "race" Hades damage to kill him faster than he can kill them. Gods like Baba Yaga and Anubis can simply Ultimate in response to Hades Ult and completely turn the fight on him out of nowhere. While Odin, Osiris, and Cerberus make it really hard for Hades to keep healing through all the damage swung at him.
