Mushrooms mean that without oracles or lantern/sweeper you can't go in bushes or jungle, or else you drop 25% or more of your health.
Even if you have oracles, you still can't reliably check bushes. And not checking bushes means that you can get jumped on in the jungle or lane with impunity.
Teemo just offers insane map control. A fed Teemo can literally zone the entire enemy team completely out of their own jungle and out of all bushes. I see him banned all the time in ranked, and he just dominates blind pick.
edit: And I don't think Mundo is tier 1, there's too many ways to shut him down:
Who buys executioner's anyways?
Anyways... Teemo doesn't have a lot of control if you just own him in lane :P.
Constantly keep pressure in his lane with a jungler and whoever is laning against him.
I keep saying that over and over, most Teemos only put their shrooms in a certain location, for instance, the tips of the bushes and etc.
Just out think it. Don't fall for the same trick over and over. Adapt and learn. You know there might be a shroom on the tip of the bush, why not walk around it. Maybe buy a few oracles or whole team have sweepers and lanterns.
Very easy to counter a teemo if you just take him out early game and just not let him snowball whatever lane he is in.
