Looking at what you have, there's:

Alistar [Support/Tank]
Draven [ADC]
Galio [Mid/Tank/AP Assassin counter/Initiator]
Hecarim [Jungler/Bruiser/Initiator]
Jaravan [Top/Jungler, Assassin/Bruiser/Initiator]
Kassadin [Mid/Assassin]
Malphite [Top/Tank/Initiator]
Shaco [Jungler/Assassin]
Singed [Top/Tank]
Tristana [ADC]
Twisted Fate [Mid/Assassin]
Urgot [Bot/Bruiser/Initiator (with some other miscellany)]
Zilean [Mid/Support-y mage]


You want a strong midgame AD carry or a safe lategame one - Ezreal isn't a bad option but that's really on you. You really really want an AP hypercarry, which means Ryze or Karthus and Ryze is only 450. You also want a poke support, Sona is the best bet for that if you don't have the IP for Lulu, Janna is good but Alistar works for a defensive support. Taric is fine too, and cheap.

You're also missing a strong duelist other than Jarvan, so you might want to pick up Olaf or Garen. Another good option is an AP tank with a bunch of CC - Cho'Gath mainly.

Veigar is the opposite of a lategame hypercarry. He scales better into lategame than a lot of people would, but he has the issues of being completely useless when his Q/W is on cooldown and not having teamwide AoE. No matter how much damage you do, you'll be able to at best blow up one person with moderate range and then hope your team can clean up after you.

On the other hand, you are really really good at blowing up one person.

Ryze, on the other hand, pumps out sustained damage over the course of a fight like an AD carry would, except using spells (Q) rather than autoattacks.

Not that one is better than the other, just that TF and Kassadin fill a similar role to Veigar while Ryze does something completely different as a sustained damage mage. Veigar's fun and cheap enough to just pick up anyhow. If you're trying to rush the 16 champs for Ranked, don't worry too much about it - normal draft is more flexible and you can play that now, plus you get to use the free week guys.

Fiddlesticks has decent sustained damage, but it's unstable. He's more of a jungler rather than a midlaner because most of his damage is packed into his Drain and ultimate unless a lot of bounces hit - due to that, he's really vulnerable to CC. His ult is incredibly powerful though, so a common strategy is to jungle him and run behind the enemy team, then blink in with ult, fear, dark wind, drain and blow up the entire enemy team.

However, unless he can maintain Drain his non-ultimate damage output during a fight is pretty bad.

Some good mids that you might like are Ahri, Cassiopea, and Orianna. Ahri can be played as either an assasin, or an aoe fighter. Cassiopea has a very good initiation with her ult and can pump out alot of damage very quickly, as well as having decent sustained damage. Orianna is just awesome.
