Almost all heroes have more than one way to counter them, but Shaco literally has everything. Tons of damage early game through late game, an amazing escape in his ult (that also eats up Ashe's stun, which is bull****) and AOE crowd control.
Get used to one good Shaco taking out whole teams that aren't above averagely careful, because it's really unlikely Pendragon is going to nerf his little baby anytime soon
Because everyone knows that Pendragon makes all the decisions, right? Or that he even works
on the champions(Last I checked, he didn't.) Shaco is easily countered via vision wards. One vision ward in every lane around level 6-ish usually results in shaco being out-right killed if he tries to gank someone. Most Shaco will decieve from the bushes and run up on someone, rather than run up on them and then decieve. So usually you can see him coming via vision ward and shut him down completely.
A shaco that doesn't get fed early on is a fairly weak shaco, as he can't farm worth a ****.
Edit: to answer the OP's question, vision wards and a stun will easily counter Shaco early game. After that just get Warden's mail/thornmail if he becomes that
much of a problem. Though, without the plethora of early game kills, he rarely becomes that much of a nuisance until end-game, where your tanks have oracles and if you're smart, will have vision wards along the lanes.
