Have you tried Nasus? He has natural lifesteal with his passive and a skill that needs farming to be useful. Plus he has a really useful slow and an armor-reducing AOE for when you want to be aggressive. And all that for only 1350 RP!

if you are passive and like to farm Yorick all the way just poke with E/W if they start comming in then go back to farming.

Singed is my favorite top to play (even though it's rare for me to play top)

Pros:
Super fast wave clearing with his Q
His W + E combo will scare the **** out of anyone
Great roaming power, and a great split-pusher
The only skill you need in team fights is to fling the enemy carry into your team, use your Ult, and run around in circles.

Cons:
No range. At all.
His laning phase can be difficult if not played right.
Will be destroyed by champions that have a lot of range, such as Teemo/Jayce.

Well, Nasus loves to farm. The only problem with him is that he has very limited ranged ability, so he tends to get harrassed a lot by champs like Teemo and Nidalee. Great to counter someone like Jax though.

Singed is essentially the same deal, except he pushes harder and harasses more. Could be good or bad depending on the junglers.

Then there's Yorick. He's got great farm and harrass, and has the potential to be aggressive, but he's kind of useless late game.

Morde farms his ass off, and he has that shield to block poke, but he's countered hard by a lot of popular picks: Garen, Jax, Teemo, Kayle, Jayce, Olaf...

You could always go with GP. Parrrrrrley to farm and harrass, oranges for gank escapes, slow and movespeed buff to chase, and global ult for ks'ing. I mean, maintaining map presence.
