Unless you have a taunt to force them to attack you, don't get Thornmail.

The solution to an AD carry as a Tank is..."get your teammates to focus them"
Stop thinking about this as a 1v1 game and stop thinking about 1v1 scenarios.

You're singed? Great, grab them and throw them into your team = dead carry.

Also, have you considered Rylai's on Singed. Slow proc on your poison is pretty fun.

First off, Singed is not a main tank. He is great in threes, but in SR, he more or less needs an initiator like Amumu or Galio to pin those carries and allow you to fling the enemy carry/AP carry into your team.

Something a lot of people don't think about is where in the sub categories would you place someone? Examples of what I mean are, Rammus, Amumu, and Shen. Shen is a defensive (Peeler) tank, whose job is to peel, defend his carry, and disrupt the fight, once it has started. Rammus is a strong secondary tank, but lacks the initiation and the team control for a primary tank. His goal is to get in there, and screw up one target so much that they either get picked off, or spend too much time attacking him to help their team. Amumu on the other hand is an initiator, someone who starts the team fight, then loses a lot of his reason for being targeted.

TLDR; Each tank serves a purpose. There are strong initiators, peelers, and support tanks. Depending on where your tank lands, depends on how they help the team. Singed, falls into the category of peeler, meaning unless you have a strong initiator on your team, you are unlikely going to be able to do much about Vayne, or any other AD carry, unless they pull their way to the front.

ALWAYS focus vayne, she is so god **** squishy....
kog maw:try to zone him out in the team fight ....

General tips: if u have trouble against certain champs, u can play them, and try to know the weaknesses. u will know when u die. so try to know why u die. and use this "why" to counter the champ.
