Ideal champions: Karthus, Ryze, Heimerdinger, Sivir, Morgana, Graves, Malzahar, Xerath
you forgot Yorick, arguably the best bot in the game. Maokai, Ahri, Soraka and Nasus are also very good.

yes but this is probably the least important role in Dominion - ie: the one you can most easily do without. Don't forget Riven - so good.

a number of AP champs also fit this role - Brand, Kassadin, Le'Blanc and so on. AD isn't required at all. Also, don't forget Miss Fortune, Ashe and Caitlyn.

Evelynn fills a very different role - scout / map awareness / ect but can be played as a brusier. Jax and Akali are both average picks on Dominion - Akali is better, imo - but Talon is one of the strongest picks for his role in the game. Poppy is great.

There is alot of team comps that work very well in dominion but kennen and riven are very top tier picks that can win games. Riven has a very good early game in Dom and scales very very hard. Kennen has no real early game damage but his ulti @ rank 3 can completely wreck people at top and stop dives. But in a 4v4 comp top you have to remember to mix in a good bit of CC. A pick people dont often use are Lux and AP kogmaw with brusiers that do good physical damage up front. Example wukong, riven, jarvan, and GP. Assains can't ever get to AP kog/lux and even if they do they get binded and bursted. AP kog is very very underrated and is one of the Best ap in the game with his long range poke he is not used in SR because of his horrid laning phase but he can keep people off caps and 1v1 fine. In dom he also brings one of the best zone controlling spells in game in his E around a 70% slow at max rank in tight dominion lanes is godlike. His R around late game like kennen can take 50% off someone like talon from a very safe range.

A good thing to have in dom is "threats" wukong and riven are always threats they hurt, they have CC, they do good AE, damage and cant be ignored. A team will lose every fight if u cannot get to the range in the back of the fight. Vayne has very unsafe damage but is still good with proper protection but if u have a talon or an assasin like him she can get insta gibed ez pz every fight. With lux wukong riven u have anti-engage. A lot of champs have that and u should have it on any team in some way shape or form sona ulti, GP ulti, control alot of space. Kennen ulti, wukong, veigar's stun, maokai ulti, cassiopia ulti, and swain snare are all very good zone control abilities and fight deterants. Team wide buffs for your team are also very important and synergy. I would prefer to have a sivir top with double brusier AP b/c of her ulti movespeed and AS buff same with GP- AS-MS and ww- AS and J4-armor AS. Zilean is also a very good pick he can completely disable one of their AD with his slow, give yours movespeed, has a res, and his bombs hurt.

Pantheon is also a very good pick b/c he can instagib squishys every spawn and every team fight same with eve. Eve can build bruiser but its not optional in most cases if they have any form of squishy she can build AP and take them out of the game completely 100% 0 them from spawn every time they walk out and she can do that to 2 squishys because of how fast she is. She only should build tanky if there is no squishy but b/c shes worse then every other brusier in the game she should focus more on back capping and neutral capping to take the stronger one from their team out of a fight or force them to lose a point. Teemo is generaly a bad pick people dont know how to build him but if he builds ON Hit AS with a tank line hes a decent pick with good damage and shread. He can 1v1 most AD that dont have casts such as graves and M but vayne cant or shouldnt be able too. A good ashe will kite u tho but u can beat cait and teemo beats most skillshot based AP with long cds urgot is just a pain who has the best 1v1 in game.

Kassadin is probly the best ap assassin for dom, AD alistar is very good in dom, needless to say rammus is good his mobility, AD insta gib, tanky initator, and cc make him a great pick. Kayle is also an under used decent pick and so is shyvana. Shyvana is only good if u can force fights away from turrets force 4v3's or have CC and slows but her raw damage and 1v1 potential is very high.

The issue with supports in Dom is they arent threats and their items can be put in your teams build for the 4v4 at top. They are generally ignore-able or insta gib-able them if they provide too many buffs such as WOTA agais soul shroud shuyrelia F heart and are around 3 other people they are a threat. But the issue there is the tank can get F heart ap can get Wota tank or bruiser can get agais and or shuyrelia and shroud isant that good if people buy team items that go top supports are irrelevant since they do not do damage u do not want cho gath because no matter how u build him he dosent do good damage but he has Avoidable cc
