Well, Master Yi has worked very well so far, 12 wins, 3 losses.
I'm glad I switched to hard melee ad carries. I still believe I could do it with Malzahar, but it would take alot longer.
You can carry far worse teams with just a decently fed Yi, especially late game, where Malzahar falls off.

So yes, this seems to work better.
Malzahar's biggest issue for solo carrying is that he can wipe out one target with his combo but after that he's reduced to skillshot AOE abilities at quite high cooldowns which means that while you can do quite a bit of damage, actually killing targets beyond the first one is hard while Yi only picks up the speed (same with e.g. Katarina, Nocturne and the like). Constant damage is the name of the game far as carrying solo goes and ADs beat APs pretty soundly in that department (aside from perhaps Karthus, Rumble and Katarina).

Just had a pentakill with Yi, good stuff. Well, server is down now. So 1000+ elo has to wait.
