Mac has a very specific focus when playing well: have control. From his bad recovery to his bad grabs, losing any type of stage advantage puts him at a seriously bad disadvantage. I suggest dodging more than shielding, as being grabbed or shield broken is pretty much either a stock or insanely high damage on a character like mac. Maintaining stage control is key, so keeping the opponent out is imperative. And despite being trash, Mac's aerials do exist and can extend combos and reset, mainly his neutral and down air. Combo'ing with his grabs is difficult, but his main go to option is down throw into up special, but if it's avoiding, expect some punish.
