I wanna dip into Ranked play, but I heard Master Yi is not viable in Ranked play. I kinda liked Kha'zix and Darius etc. What would you guys say?

In ranked play, anything you're good with is viable. Yes, including Master Yi, if you consider yourself a very good Yi player.

That being said if you want stronger general picks, Kha'zix is frequently banned. Darius is a common pick. You're best off keeping a slightly less popular pick in the wings that you can play so you don't have to scramble for random champions at a moment's notice.

Think you could recommend me such a Champion? I also looked at Pantheon and Olaf, but those seem to be a bit common aswell.

Yi is absolutely viable as a troll pick and in certain situations he can wreck teams (specifically, he wrecks carries).

If you're looking for other, similar champions though, perhaps consider Riven (even after the nerfs), Jax or Pantheon. All melee-range champions with gap closers who are capable of high outputs of damage in a short amount of time.
