The scope is limited to AP heroes that are used to solo mid. For example, Talon may be a usable counter-pick to Kassadin, and Sivir counters Brand, but they are not AP champions, and are exempt from the list. Of course arguments to the contrary against the list are encouraged, as this would deepen our understanding and is what this list is primarily about: the discussion of counters.

Information drawn from (http://leagueofstats.com/champions/counters).

The number of times rumble and TF appear as counters is quite surprising for me. The dominance of Kassadin, Morgana, and Sion - not so much.

Id also recommend putting gragas down for kennen's counters because he has amazing displacement which wrecks kennen's ult

You say Heimer is countered by Twisted Fate for example, then you list several champs who counter Twisted Fate.

It is good that every AP champ has some counters.

You could make a similar list for AD champs and it would be the same.

These aren't counters based on the OP's opinion, these are counters based on statistics from actual games. League of Stats compiles win percentages for champions and produces a list of counters based on what opposing champions give a champion the worst win percentage. According to their statistics pages, Gragas actually loses to teams with Kennen.

Doesn't Galio pretty much counter every AP mid?

Leblanc only truly crushes Veigar, but other champions can do even that better.
She has favorable matchups against:
Xerath
Ryze
Annie
Fizz
But again, if you're looking for a counterpick, other people are more suitable.

The odd thing with Leblanc is even though high elo streamers have had great success with her, she runs a weak win-rate of about 40-45% suggesting that the common populace plays her incorrectly: framing her as an extremely weak hero.

Or, and this is just my opinion, she may win the lane against more APs, but she would ultimately cost the team the game due to her weak scaling.

Cass is only hard countered by Kassadin, and I've heard Sion, although I've not seen proof of the later.

Xerath would get brutalized by her.
