When playing against a high damage mobile squishy champion with a shield and an ability to block projectiles every 19 seconds like Yasuo, there are a few steps you must take to beat him.

1) Ban him /joke

2) Avoid picking champions that don't scale well into late game or that have a weak early game. examples of this are not limited to but include Nasus (very weak pre 6), Mundo (weak pre 6), Renekton (scales horribly into late game), shyvana (not enough early damage). Also avoid picking champions heavily reliant on hitting their entire combo or have easy to dodge skill shots, examples of this are gragas, ziggs, and a few other popular mids.

3) Pick champions that output high damage in a quick burst. Examples of this can be xin zhao, udyr, akali, jarvan (passive with e-q-r is underrated), annie, brand, morgana. other duelists that can win are irelia and jax. Darius is also a strong pick or Kayle (unless he windwalls your Q)

4) BRING HIS SHIELD DOWN BEFORE ENGAGING. his shield only lasts for 2 seconds. YOU DONT HAVE TO CONTINUOUSLY DAMAGE IT, IT FALLS ON ITS OWN (hint hint: use one auto attack, back off and re-engage)
Once his shield is down, feel free to go at him.

Yasuo can be stopped by cc. WHY SO? maybe because you lock him down and then his shield is gone so if he engages he can take damage.

Yasuo does high damage and snowballs hard so DO NOT FEED HIM

congrats if you followed these steps you will beat yasuo

Or you can play darius against yasuo, usually works if you plan your engages right.

true, this would work on most Yasuo players however someone that is experienced with yasuo will block your Q with windwall, jump on you and win the trade
someone who is bad will let you abuse him with autoattacks from E

this is false. yasuo outscales both of these champions and wins late game. if yasuo plays right he can also win trades early. mundo is nothing but a punching bag against a yasuo in all honesty

Kayle being a counter to him is a myth, I've come out of the lane 5/0, 7/1, and 8/2 as yasuo and that's with the enemy jungler pressuring top 10x harder than mine every game (the 5/0 game the kayle even started with fb from the level 1 and got a level 2 gank from his jungler). Yasuo has everything on his kit that kayle hates in lane phase. Multiple hard engages and the ability to set up ganks on her easily.

She just happens to be so far beyond OP that it doesn't matter.

Also yasuo dumpsters renekton and is good vs. mundo. The best ones OP suggested are xin zhao and akali if her jungler helps her, but xin won't really scale up.
