Drow also can. Both can beat him up at all stages of the game.
Or you can just play the hero, and sustain a 100% win ratio if hes really so hard to beat as you say.
I might try the Slark thing, and yeah somebody already stated Drow, but that would only work for mid game and up. Assuming that the Invoker wasn't able to farm most his early game.
And we do pick him when we can (and so far have never lost with an Invoker on our team o.o), but a lot of the time we're second pick or they might pick Lucy or AM before we can get Invoker. And as I said earlier, Lucy and AM do rape Invoker, but they're almost always unavailable.

Also, I like Silencer as a Counter, as he prevents him from mass-casting in teamfights.
But Pugna isn't going to be able to start off with at least a level 3 Nether Ward, which means he either has to sacrifice his nuke or disable skill points, or somehow level up faster than Invoker. Who is by the way most of the time solo mid. I'm going to try Pugna the next time an Invoker pops up on the enemy team though.
As I said earlier, Silencer can prevent the mass chain disables, but that's only part of the problem. Seeing as how Invoker's base stats are awesome as well as his spells.

You can't necessarily always do that, seeing as how any decent enemy team will call MIA's on your team's gankers, not to mention that Invoker can go invisible. And I have yet to meet an Invoker who doesn't get at least one level of Quas for Ghost Walk.
