Notes

Cowl feels the best overall for lane pressure & health sustain, deaths toll provides the best mana sustain, and gilded never fails to keep you up in gold no matter while also leading into ornate for crit builds.

Generally speaking, you may not want to build into cowl if you go for devos stack, deaths embrace is probably the best late-game starter for right now.

Anhur can deny Danz ult and 1 with his pillar

Chern dmg immunity with his 3 provides great dodging for ult and 1

Danz can still slap these gods, but they are the slightest counter to him

EVERYONE
Notes

Danz is broken in terms of power, mobility, and CC right now. He outlanes everyone and provides insane team-fight and 1v1 potential. Until hirez nerf his ult and 3 he will remain a top hunter.
