By switching with top lane -.-
This is pretty much what used to happen when xin was vs squishies mid. Just switch with top lane so you don't face your counter.
If you insist to vs your counter, play someone without skillshots and can tank some damage. A good example of this is sion and maybe gragas.

leblanc maybe maybe. If you can land a Q+W combo (with right runes) you can keep it so he won't jump in and destroy you..but no promises.

Terrible logic. OP is asking what is an ap caster best suited against talon. Talon is good against ap casters mid, but there are ones that are better than others. He doesn't necessarily state it that way, but with just a little reading comprehension you should be able to tell.

Back to the OP's point, I think you just have to play a certain way against him regardless of champ. Kinda like how annie at level 6, you play a little farther back constantly, it's just unavoidable, but not game breaking. Obviously champs will skill shots will be a bit more difficult, but I suggest Ryze. I mean if you can get a chain vest (for frozen heart) after your tear and boots you'll have the upper hand.

I've had success vs Mid Talon as Brand and Zilean. Dont know if its just because they were all bad but they dont seem too hard.

Sure. You can play an immensely difficult lane due to how much of a Caster-Killer Talon's kit makes him.

OR.

You can make the lane immensely easier and set Talon up against those who are actually capable of handling him.

Why risk the chance of screwing up your mid lane?

And besides. AP casters are notorious for being gank-punishers. Stuns and what not.

When Talon starts to roam away from mid-lane, at least one of your lanes won't get instantly crushed.

tl;dr Increase your success rates. Why stay stubborn and risk it.

I've had success against Talon with Nidalee, AP Ezreal, and Lux. Pretty much because I can harass him from afar and there was nothing he could do about it.
