I know bot lane is support driven and jungle- but I really don't like being a sitting duck doing nothing but farm and get poked to death. When I duobot with my friend, he usually goes Nami, Sona, and maybe Taric. Which support is best against them and for Vayne too?

Any tip would be lovely.
Get a Taric support. Leona would be better if your friend is actually good at her. The second she goes by a wall have Taric stun her, then condemn her into a wall. You basically have to 1. Not take harass.
2. Get into range without her getting free hits.
3. Use your cc advantage.

I've also found that I like taking barrier against Cait.

Seconded. All in supports to help set up condemns make this lane. Granted enemy support will make a big difference as well. If you can time it to a point where you burn Cait's Q cooldown you'll have an edge.

I dig grabbing an early Cutlass into Blade, but that's just me.

You're not going to win the lane against a Cait that knows what they are doing without some serious jungle support or a lot of outplaying.

But that doesn't mean you have to lose the lane completely either.

As Vayne against a Cait, you just need to keep your farm up. As long as you make sure you don't outright fall behind Cait you will start to outdamage her as the game goes on.

this is one of the dumbest things ive ever heard.

Lets be honest here if you are of equal skill lets say doublelifts vayne playing doublelifts cait, the cait stomps vayne its how counters work, only other thing to do is hope they take ur tower and ur team is strong enough to hold out 4v5 as they roam lol

early blade is so bad, you do no damage compared to someone who went BT or cutlass to IE.
