Yorick would destroy AP yi, yes. Nasus, however, I have yet to see vs my AP yi. Lucky for me I play draft and never see Yorick anymore, as there are very few champs that actually "counter" him.

AP Yi does pretty good vs Yorick actually, very easy stale mate. Just grab a WotA mid-game to help with sustain and clear creep waves + alpha strike procs its bonus damage on his minions I think, couldn't tell cause I one shot them anyway. Very easy to get safe alpha strikes since his minions are constantly coming to you. You're never gonna kill Yorick once he gets lifesteal though.

I don't think Nasus would be able to do more than stalemate AP Yi either. I actually think the hardest champs to lane against are ranged AD carries with lifesteal for Yi, Graves specifically and most likely Vayne as well.

Here's the issues with AP yi vs. Yorick:

-He uses his ghouls, you alpha and end up killing his ghouls instead of the minions. You also probably fail to damage him as a result. This means HE is pushing the lane, not you.
-Yorick outsustains yi quite easily and can lay the hurt on him when he attempts to trollitate.
-Yorick is already broken 1v1 anyways. Very few counters, and I wouldn't count Yi as one of them by a long shot.

I'm not saying you can beat him or out harass him, very few champs can. Stalemate is usually the best thing to aim for vs Yorick and Yi can do that.

Any decent yorick is going to chase you down with his slow/speedup and force you out of lane. sure you can hold him off at your turret, but so can most champions. He'll still get minions to damage your point enough for it to make a difference, and you'll end up requiring a gank at some point.

I feel that the counter to yorick is ganks. Ganking bot is important, whether you are winning or losing

True, but yorick is so **** good at surviving ganks once his snare and speed ghoul is maxed

That means your ganking wrong. I have never felt that a yorick can escape a 2v1 if you know what your doing unless he plays cautious, in which case since i stayed out of sight i speed shrine and gank the person going top
