Puck has been a strong Midlaner in the past. But has fallen back in this meta. It is not easy to gank puck in mid. He is the best escape hero in dota2. His ultimate forces the enemies to stay in one location, it is the best way to start a team fight. His second skill waning Rift does good damage and silences enemies around puck. Phase shift enables puck to be immune from damage which gives him a chance to escape from most attacks.

Sf is pretty squishy early game, he can be easily killed. So gank him early and kill him regularly to spoil his farm. He has to farm to get souls after getting killed. So gank and kill him often so he cant collect souls which offers him damage. Heroes like sniper and Zeus can easily kill Sf from far. Sf cant get close enough to these heroes for the razes or his ultimate. Pugna is also good support against SF and the Netherward does a lot of damage if Sf tries to raze or his ultimate.
