Sorry to deviate from the topic at hand, but this intrigued me. As a part-time Renekton player, are there any counters to him that I should be avoiding?

@ The OP: Trundle can counter Yorick (Heals when ghouls die). Cho'Gath can counter yorick (Kill ghouls heals you). Nasus can somewhat counter yorick (gains stacks from killing ghouls.) Renekton can also counter yorick (Gap closes and combos on his relatively soft rear end).

@Tekno: A good gangplank or teemo can annoy you with their poking abilities (also GP oranges your stun). Jax will be stronger than you once he gets level 6. Olaf trades very favorably and can sustain very well. Of these, I like to ban Olaf when I try to play Ren. You can ban Jax as well, if you like.

Were I to design this champion I would increase his cooldowns SIGNIFIGANTLY, as well as their mana costs. I would buff the effects to comparably. This would prevent the endless free harass and liferegen and make it FEEL GOOD when someone pushed a button instead of another ghoul thats just a 100 damage dot every 3 seconds.
Yorick has moderate mana costs for his abilities. They aren't spammy until he has CDR boots and a tear.

If they raised his cooldowns, they'd ruin Yorick. It doesn't matter how much damage they do, the ghouls are what make him Yorick, instead of just another Tanky DPS.

When in doubt, you can always get a ranged champ to solo top when you see someone pick Yorick. If you're that intimidated, pick someone ranged like Teemo against Yorick. That, or have your Jungler help you a lot. I beat a Yorick as Nasus with the help of a Lee Sin Jungle.
