It seems like he just bullies every laner. I play Graves myself but when I play against him as AD I normally get crushed in lane as Vayne or Sivir which are my only other two AD's. When I don't get to pick Graves, I need an AD carry that can lane against him.

I was thinking Cait and Corki are safe bets against Graves but I would like some confirmation or other suggestions on this.

Also yeah I know the support has a lot to do with the lane, but honestly Graves is pretty good with any support. If you have any suggestions on the support I should request, please let me know.

Cait can bully graves out of lane early, but graves has a much stronger late game. Corki is probably the safest bet.

That is an option. I do concede that.

There have to be other solutions though, since I'm not always first pick.

Cait, Sivir, and Urgot stomp graves in lane

You definitely shouldnt be losing to graves as sivir, use your spellshield to block his Q

My varying success against Garen is usually based on how good the Garen player is so I can't really give advice on a champion that counters him.

Sivir and Vayne are horrible picks against Graves....
Try going Taric+Cait or Sona+Corki, that should keep him either zoned or at the very least make him play passively.

I actually have not played Sivir in ranked. I also admit I've only played her a couple times. She does seem pretty decent against him so I will try it out a bit more. I feel like she runs out of mana too easily, so if Graves gets Soraka it might be a pain.

Also, I'm leaning the most towards Corki, since his armor shred and passive would work nicely against Graves' passive. Urgot also seems pretty good and I'd like to try him out. I like champs with game changing ults.
