Must-have mid champions?
Me and my friends are starting to work towards Ranked matches, now that we're slowly hitting 30. We're not exactly gods of the game, and probably won't see 1500 elo, or the equivalent in s3, anytime soon - but still want to have a bit of fun.

It's looking like my roll will either be Mid, or bot support...since I've got a decent handle on support, I'm trying to focus on my mid game. So my question is: Is there a list of champions that every mid *should* know?

As far as I've heard, Twisted fate, Anivia, and Morgana are champions I should learn - but I'm trying to broaden to as many 'counter picks' as possible.

Karthus, Kassadin, Talon, Xerath, Oriana, Elise as well imo

Karthus, Katarina, Morgana, Ryze, Twisted Fate

Thank you two for the swift replies. Time to start snagging some more champions!

This list is good, but, IMHO, I would remove Elise and Xerath and replace them with Diana and Lux. Both are very solid champions with lots of utility throughout the game, but it's all personal preference really. That said, Diana has been one of the most banned champs at this weekends IPL5 for very good reason!

Is Gragas bad? Never see him on these lists.

Farm or get out of mid. Also Swain, just fp him and bait a kat or fizz pick and rape face on them.

I totally forgot about Gragas! He's pretty amazing! Definitely get him!

Elise counters people like Morgana, Karthus, Kat, Akali if you have a vision ward. in lane. Xerath is a good counter to Morgana and Karthus as well.

Diana is Good as well. Lux is kinda meh. Galio is a good anti Vlad/Mord pick.
