Good AP Mid champ?

So I've been trying to raise my elo, and I've had some, although very little, success. I hear one of the best ways is to carry hard as AP mid, since it can influence so much control over the game. With that said, I'd like some advice on who to buy for an attempt to raise my elo and improve at the game.

Ahri seems good, but I'm not sure if she's the best option in this situation.

Also, what do you do about getting in solo queue and someone else wants mid that is one pick before you? They'll call you a troll if you go mid anyway. Sometimes you're left playing support when everyone says don't play support to get your way out. So, what do you do?

Another question, what would be the best standard runes to put on an AP mid?

I'm really trying to better myself, and not blame others for everything but look at myself to see what I'm doing wrong. Thanks! I hope someone can help me!

well increasing Elo is 90% luck ie at the start of season two a pro ap mid player (Reginald) got stuck at 1500 elo because the Elo system is just that bad dont worry about it too much because good players recognise that it doesnt always indicate a players skill at least not any more after the huge rush of players when League of Legends got really popular most of whom turned out to be bad or just trolls

oh and in answer to the question i like Gragas but i would have to go with someone Ahri/Cassiopiea/Morgana for the ability to both impact in teamfights and push/roam in the laning phase

@BlackJesus101
Well, when you're elo is three digits, just getting to four is an accomplishment. I want to mostly improve my skill with last hitting, and to carry the game if I have to.

@JimmiesRustlin
Should I really give a ryze a go at this?

At your elo, go with ryze if you just want to get up there. Honestly, I'd pick a champ like Cassiopoeia and get better at her. You'll go much farther.

Only problem with Ryze is you need a rune page just for him. Hes pretty strong though.

Honestly if you want to have the most effect on the game, jungler effects the game way more at 1200 elo. 1200 is all about win lane, win game. As a jungler you have the direct ability to affect every lane and help them win. Plus you'd also be playing an underplayed role meaning that it would rarely be contested.
