Dota 2 - Pugna Build Guide

In the realm of Pugna's birth, near the vents of the Nether Reaches, there stood a lamasery devoted to the Arts of Oblivion, which drew its power from the nether energies. The Grandmaster of the temple compound had himself passed into Oblivion several years prior, leaving his academy without a leader. From the moment of their master's death, the regents of the temple began rites of divination to identify their master's reincarnation, and eventually all signs converged on the immediate neighborhood. Several villages squatted in the shadow of the temple, their alleys and plazas full of the laughter of squalling children. Pugna, a mere thirteen months of age, was but one candidate among the local brats, and on the appointed day he was presented at the temple alongside two other promising tots. The lamas offered a jumble of worn relics to the children, treasured possessions of their former grandmaster. One boy reached for a porphyry wand that had belonged to the lama...and put it in his nostril. An impish girl pulled out an amulet that had also been the lama's, and immediately swallowed it. Pugna regarded the other two coolly, gave a merry laugh, and blasted them with gouts of emerald flame, reducing them to ashes in an instant. He then snatched up the wand and amulet, saying 'Mine!' The regents hoisted the beaming Pugna on their shoulders, wrapped him in their grandmaster's vestments, and rushed him to the throne before his mood could change. Within five years, the temple itself was another pile of ash, which pleased Pugna to no end.

Pugna is a powerful nuking hero that is needed to deal massive magical damage to enemies. He have 2 powerful nukes, he also have a skill to amplify his magical damage,

A now-mastered relic from his childhood, Pugna delights in banishing others into the Nether Realm, whether for good, evil, or simple enjoyment.
Make a target become a ghost form. It can attack nor attacked, but it will receive more damage from magic attack. So you can amplify your nuke damage. So cast this on a target and then use Nether Blast and also Life Drain to increase the damage. Can also save yourself from physical attacker by casting this to you or to the attacker. Can also saves you from Juggernaut's ultimate because it will not target a ghost unit.

3. Nether Ward
Pugna places a nether ward that fires mana flares at enemy heroes who dare to cast spells, while also preventing them from regenerating mana. Nether Ward deals damage equal to the damage multiplier times the mana spent by the enemy hero. Lasts 25 seconds.

Why maxed Nether Blast first?  This is your main nuke, you will need this for ganking, farming, and killing on early mid game.

Why maxed Decrepify before Nether Ward? more useful because it will amplify your magic's damage so it will be easier to kill your target. And level 1 ward is enough for early game.

Early Game
Early game Pugna is one of the easiest early game in Dota. You have an aoe spell to destroy a creep wave and also damaging your enemy on your lane, it will be so useful in laning phase to get multiple last hits and also harassing your enemy. And if someone is trying to gank you, you can use your Decrepify to somehow flee fro the gank. Maybe you can cast the Decrepify to your chaser and make his movement become slow so you can run away.

Mid Game
On mid game, usually people start to gank each other. What you need to do is to find the ewasy enemy to start killing for your team. Go to the target's lane and use Decrepify + Nether Blast + Life Drain to kill the target. And always tell your friend to help you because maybe your combo isn't enough to kill your target so your friend can help dealing more damage.
Pugna the Oblivion
Late Game
On the late game you are become stronger than before. I assume you already have the Aghanim Scepter and ready to demolish enemies in the teamfight. Before the teamfight start, place your Nether Ward in a secret locations and make sure your enemy can't see it so the ward will deal damages and your opponent can't see it coming.
You can use Decrepify to their physical attacker and make him cannot attack your team, and then you can use the Nether Blast and also Life Drain to damaging your opponent.
