How to counter Terrorblade in Dota 2
1) Stop his farm in the early game

Do not let him farm freely. Pressure him in the early stages of the game. He has a weak laning phase so try to abuse that as much as possible.
2) Chain-stun him
Terrorblade is so dangerous because of his ultimate to swap health. So, try to make sure he will not use his Ultimate in a team fight or while ganking.
To do that, try to chain-stun him with your allies. Chain-stun means stun him turn by turn for not letting him move and use his skills. While he is stunned, your team can defeat the terrorblade and shut him down.
3) Blow him up with magical spells
