I want people opinion on what if frozen heart is a good choice or not to counter top.
I believe that it's not but some friend won't listen to me and I don't have the patience or the time to argue with him. I strongly believe that randuin's / zhonya or even GA can do a better job on vlad for top and gives a better end game. (Would like some explanation why FH would be better or why any other item would be better than FH)

if you want an armor item to counter top then just buy a chain shirt and upgraded into a zhonya late game. hell if you want more armor then that then upgrade it to a thron. wasting all that gold on mana you cant uses is stupid.

There's a better source of every stat on FH for Vlad in another item.

CDR has multiple options.
Armor has the hourglass.

Frozen Heart for Vladimir is a waste of gold since he doesn't use mana, there are better options. My favorite is Zhonya's Hourglass, because it gives you 100 AP (and 140 HP due to his passive) and you can use it in your combos to be invulnerable until you wait your cooldowns to reset, so you will have more survivability to deal a lot more damage:

R, Ignite, E, Q, pool - [wait for the first cooldown reset] - AA, E, Q, Zhonya - [wait for the second cooldown reset] - AA, E, Q

If you need a second item that provides armor, you could buy Thornmail and change it for another better item later, like Randuin's Omen. I think the second one is better because it offers CDR, HP5 and HP (AP too, due to his passive), not only armor.
