[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Heroes for Aghanim's Labyrinth

After a long hard game of Dota, it can get exhausting to slay enemy ancients or to see your ancient being slain all day. 

Sometimes, you just want to kick back and relax, enjoy a drink or have some food while playing Dota. Aghanim’s Lab is a great mode that proved to be a breath of fresh air to millions of players who did not want to play normal ranked Dota. This list ranks the Best 10 Heroes for Aghanim’s Labyrinth. 

10. Gyrocopter

Gyrocopter can let all hell loose if he has good synergy with the other heroes on his team. Ideally, with a short-range hero, there needs to be a healer and tank who are ready at his disposal to kite the mobs while he deals all the damage. Due to his squishy nature, it’s hard for Gyro to front line himself but with items and lifesteal, he can quite easily defend his ground against innumerable hordes and bosses.

What makes Gyrocopter great for Aghs Lab?

  • AoE damage
  • Physical and magical damage 
  • Great wave clear potential

9. Sniper

Sniper is quite a squishy hero for Aghanim’s Lab, only if your team lacks a frontliner. If you have that problem sorted out, you can definitely rely on Sniper to carry the game as he will be hitting the mob and the bosses from a distance. Not only does his damage get lethal, but maxing Take Aim and buying items that give him increased attack range makes him invulnerable. Itemizing for the bosses is quite the preferred method to play Sniper, as in the later stages the Apex Mage or the Primal Beast can cause great trouble if not countered well.

What makes Sniper great for Aghs Lab?

  • High attack range
  • High physical damage


8. Void Spirit

The most impressive hero in the Aghs Lab mode has to be Void Spirit. He can deal a great ton of damage and not worry about being targetted by the horde as he can just max Dissmilate and keep on doing damage. With his impressive AoE abilities, he can clear waves effortlessly and can fare well against the bosses. Though he needs some assistance when it comes to Apex Mage as he alone can’t take him down. Overall, Void is a perfect fit for most of Aghanim’s Labyrinth lineups. 

What makes Void Spirit great for Aghs Lab?

  • Mobility
  • Ability to kite
  • Wave clear and AoE damage


7. Omniknight

People often ignore and fail to understand the importance of a healer in Aghs Lab. Omniknight is not only known to provide heals but he also can dispel most debuffs and provides himself and his allies with increased strength for a decent duration. His ultimate is also the saving grace for his team, as it blocks physical damage for the whole team which is great for protection against the higher and stronger bosses like the Primal Beast.

What makes Omniknight great for Aghs Lab?

  • AoE damage
  • Healing and saving allies
  • Powerful ultimate that guards the team

6. Juggernaut

Juggernaut is extremely useful in the late stages against stronger mobs because he gains all the items and levels to sustain himself against them. The early game can be quite difficult due to the squishy nature of the hero, but he can heal his team with healing ward, which proves to be of some effect. You can also try the damage route, if your team has someone to tank, by maxing his spin and getting all the bonuses for it. The late stages of the game can be easy if you manage to hit right off from the early game. 

What makes Juggernaut great for Aghs Lab?

  • High Damage
  • Heals the team
  • Can carry the late mob levels solo

5. Drow Ranger

If your team is lacking damage, then you can always be safe with a Drow Ranger pick. Drow fares well against most hordes and bosses, the only chokepoint being the Apex Mage. While she lacks in the tank department, Drow has all you need in a carry. She can deal loads of single-targetted damage to all the bosses. You can try to solo most levels if you max your Frostbite as you deal damage from a distance and having a reliable slow only makes it better. Drow works well with the heroes which can amplify her gameplay by healing her and giving her bonuses.

What makes Drow Ranger great for Aghs Lab?

  • High physical damage
  • Immense slow for enemies

4. Templar Assassin

There are many heroes which deal a great ton of physical damage in Aghanim’s Labyrinth, but none come close to the mighty Templar Assassin. She is known to deal physical damage, which is also in an AoE form, has a shield that makes her invulnerable to damage, and an invisibility spell that helps her hide if she is low on HP. Over time, as she gets farmed, she gets stronger with the items she gets and eventually dominates the later hordes and bosses of the game, especially against Apex Mage. 

What makes TA great for Aghs Lab?

  • High physical damage
  • Escape and tank potential
  • AoE wave clear

3. Queen of Pain

The deadly queen is very mobile, which is a great factor for Aghanim’s Lab. She can sit back and deal immense nuke damage while her team tanks it out. Her impressive wave clear in most mob rooms is unmatched. Though she is said to lack against a few Apex enemy modifiers, this can be changed if you build her right. You can also kite around while your team does the damage. 

What makes QoP great for Aghs Lab?

  • Immense nuke damage and wave clear
  • Mobility
  • Ability to kite mobs

2. Pheonix

If you’re lacking a support/healer in Aghanim’s Lab, Phoenix can fit the bill quite easily. Not only is he known to heal allies, but he can also deal AoE damage to his foes. Phoenix’s most important spell has to be the Fire Spirits, which not only does great damage to the hordes, it slows them and reduces their movement speed. The spirits can be prioritized and maxed first, this can prove to be useful in the late game. You also have minor mobility with Icarus Dive, which also deals damage to enemies nearby! 

What makes Phoenix great for Aghs Lab?

  • High AoE damage
  • Attack and movement speed slow
  • Mobility 


1. Undying

Undying is said to be a wonderful hero for Aghanim’s Lab, this is due to the tank potential that he provides. There is a slight tremble in his momentum after the Sorcerer stage, as his role from a front line tank is changed to more of a damage dealer and crowd control area. He also heals allies and steals strength, making him very tanky throughout the game, ensuring your team stays alive, eliminating the possibility of any casualties. You can also use the Tombstone to your advantage and ensure you deal extreme damage to all the mobs with the help of your zombies. If played correctly, you can easily solo the final boss. Undying has the highest win rate in Aghanim’s Lab.

What makes Undying great for Aghs Lab?

  • Tank potential
  • Heals allies
  • Massive damage due to strength steal
