Vlad in Dominion

I'm interested in finding a working build for Vlad to play in Dominion.

What's everyone's opinion on this? Could his sustainability and relatively high HP make him viable? I've tried him twice, and both times my team got pub-stomped by all-star teams of champions that 'own' Dominion so I don't really have any conclusive 'data'.

That being said, I've seen Vlad several times in Dominion (albeit with rather crappy builds) and they seemed to do okay.

And don't answer with 'pick Akali or Jax'. I'm sick of those kinds of champions.

I've tried, he's not very effective because of the 20% healing debuff and his terrible early game.

Tides still costs tons of health but you need extra spell vamp to sustain it because of the healing debuff. He can't contribute to fights in a meaningful way until level 7. He has no CC, and he has no mobility to get him around the map effectively.

I like Vlad but there are better picks on SR and Dominoes, he needs buffs.

he is a bit meh imo, doesnt really bring much to the team, and there are much better bot laners and much better APs for going top

Too bad he's not viable, anymore. I bought him when he first came out and he was a lot of fun to play. I still play him in bot games (bot games are fun to just shoot the breeze and not have to worry about competing), and even there he always seems to be out-shown by other AP champions.

He could be good at defending his towers maybe bottom.

Hextech>Rylai's>Rabadons is the generic build I've gone with decent success. Blast to play hero.
