mages with faster long range abilities like cass and karth work very well i would say.

I think since Dom is so fast paced and since many mages have pretty large cool-downs the auto-attack of melee is really dominating while Mages have to wait a few seconds. Another stupid thing I noticed is that the towers do half the damage of regular towers in summoners rift. So if I am super squishy and expecting a tower to protect me I am out of luck because melee can easily just tower dive these towers where as in summoners that could mean death most definitely.
Hmm I dunno if it's really considered a mage.. but I play a pure AP Akali (Runes for the AD passive) and I did fine.

Edit: On top of that a Lux and a Veigar dominated me in different games.

Whereas some of the mages that dominate SR don't do as well on Dominion (thinking Annie, Malhazar, Brand, etc). And you guys mentioned Ryze, but he's more of a tanky AP carry in my eyes. Either way, I think he's definitely viable on SR.

Then there's poppy, who could be classified as a mage.

EDIT: Whoops, obviously you don't build AP on Ryze, but for some reason I still call him AP. I think in general I use 'AP' and 'mage' interchangably, even though they're not. Tanky magic DPS is what Ryze is, not tanky AP dps
I really had no issues playing mages. What I did have issues with was High HP. With no MBR, there is no strong counter to high HP pools.

i think everyones logic is bias when looking at the mages i play orianna on CS and do very very well cause she can output tons of damage fast and then do it again lol makes her like akali in a sense but ive been enjoying her since shes free you should try her you might find yourself destroying fun champ and ever harder to play on that map but its worth it
