Is Mundo a good top?

Jungling is my weakest position. Recently my ranked team mates called their lanes and the only thing left was jungling, I told them I was not a good jungler, but as first pick had to pick fast. I picked Mundo, then someone offered to jungle if I topped as Mundo. I did really well, and now when I solo I prefer to solo top as him. BUT almost every game my team mates think I am trolling, or I am going to feed because "he doesn't belong there"




(Passive) Adrenaline Rush
0.3% of his maximum Health each second is regened.
I mean this is part of the reason why Garen is good top with his passive that gives him .5% back, but with Mundo you get it all the time, not just out of combat.


Infected Cleaver
A slow with a percent health, in lane phase you can max either this or Masochism. Depending on your lane opponent. Most tops are also bruisers that will have high health, percent health is amazing against them if you can hit them.


Burning Agony
This is his AOE fire that does damage, and reduces disables. I think it's great at reducing disables, people like Rengar have jumped to me and I turn this on while he flew at me and gave me the upper hand. But the damage is lackluster.


Masochism

Quote:
Increases Attack Damage by (40 / 55 / 70 / 85 / 100) for (5) seconds. Dr. Mundo gains an additional +(0.4 / 0.55 / 0.7 / 0.85 / 1) Attack Damage for each percentage of Health he is missing.
This is my FAVORITE thing about him. While fighting a Garen, I rushed a thornmail, focused this move and while he had some damage items I had as much AD as him while I had a thornmail. Mid game I usually have as much damage as our ADC, as much mitigation as a full tank.

Sadism
Gives you 40%/50%/60% health back over 12 seconds and gains movement speed. Not as good as what it use to be, but still good. Cooldown is always 75 seconds, but it doesn't feel like that much in lane. Lets you stay forever if you grab a couple health pots in between cool downs.




I mean, am I wrong? It is VERY few games that people think I am not trolling. To me it seems like an amazing kit for top. Every champion has something they are weak against, and Mundos is someone with a jump or ranged. But not so much with the ranged factor because of your Infected Cleaver. I am trying to get better at solo, so if I am wrong, let me know. Just trying to "fact" check with you guys.

Mundo is one of the meanest top laners.

He's good top, but you miss out on his unmatched jungling power when you go top.

unmatched jungling? he's subpar in everything: simply an old champ.

His viability top depends on whether or not your opponent brought Ignite.

I had a pretty easy top vs a Mundo with Lee Sin. Most tops have ignite.

That makes sense, and I have had times where I cast my Cleaver to much and was killing myself. But with his passive I never have had that much of a problem. I guess Vlad uses health, but he also has lifesteal. That is something to think about.

Yeah, but I am a terrible jungler, so if someone doesn't pick him for the jungle, why not then!

I don't think that it is he is bad top, it is just that their are lots of better choices...

How is he subpar? I get more mitigation and as much damage as every other solo. Nice no fact garbage reply.

Ignite has a 210 second cooldown, Mundos ult has a 75 second cooldown. I don't play Mundo where I jump in with a quarter health and begin to ult. Just gotta use your brain there.

Yeah jumping is a weakness to Mundo. Even more so against someone with mixed damage.
