I was just wondering which champs would be good top lane. Because I've got my Vayne item build to the point where it's really good to take her top lane now. So which champs would be good top lane?

Well, you're already talking about Vayne Top lane which isn't really a troll top lane, but its an unusual one because it requires the rest of your team to be on board.

The top two tiers can really go with most teams. The bottom tier usually needs some other assistance in order to make them work well. The thing is, most people don't get above Gold and it doesn't matter who you pick in Gold down, as long as you outplay the other team you will win more than you lose as long as you're the better player.

lel most people who play against Fiora don't know how to play against her or play her.

It's bronze who complain about Fiora because in silver or especially gold or higher, Fiora doesn't work as she's either snowball or useless.
