Played a ranked game where I was top, and found out the hard way that I couldn't trade as Nidalee (of course, it probably would have helped to not be AD Nidalee like a derp), and even though I still won the lane, it wasn't by enough to carry baddies.

So, for future reference, who should I be top if Malphite is top again?

Vlad, Kennen, AP Nidalee

Every AP that's also a viable top is a solid choice.

Udyr could be a good choice. You could use turtle stance to block his Q harass and Udyr does magic damage, so Malphite's increased armor won't completely block Tiger stance harass.

He relies on the top being close enough to hit. So anyone who can effectively out-range him. Magic Damage helps since most Malphs don't usually go MR first, since it's the only stat he does not scale with.

Yeah I never see Malphite, so I only considered his abilities themselves and how much damage they will do, not about how he is going to be getting a **** ton of armor. AD Nidalee was definitely a 900 Elo choice. Oh well; still beat him. :>

Olaf can go against him. Hit and run with Q/E. Don't stand there trading autoattacks. Easy stuff.
