Supports are right out. Played a game with Kayle and rocked. Her support helped keep team alive in tower pushes so I thought I'd try playing similarly with Sona. It was bad. It felt like her cooldowns were too long for me to do much of anything, and hers are ridiculously short.

Either way, I think he's definitely viable on SR.

Then there's poppy, who could be a mage in your eyes.
Malz?

Really?

Considering how good he is at blowing up a single target I would expect him to do really well.

all i play is mages... because of the very high number of melee.. anti melee mages like karthus, or cass who can kite are very powerful.

Riot has even said that after they learned the in and outs of the game,, casters were the most powerful champion in the game, not melee. We just need to give it time and see what happens

I've had success with LeBlanc, due to her ridiculous single target burst and mobility, and Lux, due to her CC and laser. Saw some Kats tearing **** up too. I tried Fiddle and Annie and they just felt awful...

@ the 2nd post: I've been doing really well with Riven. She's quite strong in the small duels and skirmishes that take place, synergizes amazingly well with Entropy + Ghostblade, and she can dive like a boss.

Too long of CDR on his ult IMO. You can blow one guy up, but now you're a standing target for anyone else I mentioned for the next 1-2 minutes.

Annie fares a little better with her reliable stun I think.

However, I'm sure an intrepid Malhazar player will be eager to prove me wrong.

EDIT: I'm also finding Shaco to be pretty solid on Dominion as well. He defends points well (JitB), can backdoor and capture points quickly, can leap walls, and gets access to more gold than he probably usually does on SR.

Classifying Ryze as AP anything is like saying caitlyn is a tank. Don't even.

Ryze is a Tanky Mana Caster, get it right =)

ap carries with mobility are good, ap without mobility tend to be not so good

exception is fiddle because he has 2 ccs a huge aoe and a life drain, another one is ryze because he is tanky
