Can't agree with this at all. 250 Oracle and lanter/sweeper doesn't counter shrooms, at least not the important part of them. If I'm playing Teemo I don't care if my shrooms hit you that isn't what I'm concerned with. What I care about is the vision they give. If you clear them great go ahead I still know exactly where you are, can set up a gank or react to prevent team mates or myself from being killed.
It's not the damage or the slow it's the knowledge and vision his ult gives and he will drop far more shrooms than your sweeper/lantern will allow you to clear.
On top of that his move quick allows him to roam much faster than other champs and his blind will enable him to pretty much out trade pretty much any bruiser, assuming they ever get to him since he will buy either a Frozen Mallet or Rylias and kite you for forever.
