There is no reason for Yorick to get within melee range of Singed. He has W and E which he can spam and crank out tons of ghouls. This will wear Singed down very quickly. Why would you want to get in range of Singed, get tossed into poison for? Just to use a Q? That seems really dumb.

In theory singed can poison creeps, but early on his poison just doesn't do all that much damage, and he doesn't have the sustain to eat W,E after W,E... he eventually has to retreat and heal.
Singed should be able to push faster. He has great AE damage while Yorick only brings his W on a moderate cd. Even if Yorick levels his W first, you'll be able to out-sustain him as he won't have sustain from E.

You run in with gas on, gas everything. If Yorick hangs around to Q you, you fling and slow him, then run to his side of the lane and take his health pack (assuming top health is already used). If he chases to the tower, he gets gassed. You run back to where he's at and fling him into your poison again, then go back to pushing. You will push faster than him.

Once you get your ult, you basically become immune to his harass, troll with ult, push minions while threatening him with flings and force him to camp his tower.

How do you win as Soraka? Its like he can fight through Starcall pokes where most champs can't.

Yorick is strong because of his poking and sustain. Outsustain him and you can force a stalemate. As Soraka you can eat his slow and drain ranged poke and just heal it up. His melee smack is what you should watch for because that hurts and gives him speed to stick on you for another slow and drain.

I have beaten him with wukong, jax(rip), and malzahar.

wukong is kind of funny vs yorick. you beat him down and that's it. grab an emblem of valor and keep doing it.

Infuse outranges Yorick E, so you can avoid a lot of poke damage as Soraka. Starcall kills ghouls and it pushes the lane really well. Avoid too much damage from the W ghoul, don't get meleed (this should never happen anyway) and infuse him every time he walks towards you.

Also, Jax used to counter Yorick, but buahaha that's gone now. lol.

Singed shouldn't be able to beat Yorick. It's not a matter of how great Singed pushes; if he gets close to the minion wave he eats damage. If he flings Yorick into poison he usually comes out behind and relying on your ultimate for health sustain when you pay literally every time you get close to Yorick's minions is not a good thing.

Summary of Singed vs. Yorick:
- Singed runs up and poisons minions, eats WE
- Singed runs back until ghouls die, Yorick autoattacks lane to counterpush
- repeat until Singed runs out of health

Malz can beat Yorick; it's a pretty even matchup so it's mostly a skill thing on either end. Malz E hurts though and spellvamp runes are bs and I hate them.

I've had the best results(As in stomping yorick really hard) with nasus. You can either out push him or keep up, you can take advantage of their ghouls to farm Q or to power up your ult, you can **** on his damage with your E and you can even kill him if he is not careful.
Just build for high CDR and standard tanky build.
