Baron Nashor. 10k health at level one is quite hard to bring down.

He can't move though. That really hurts his mobility. He's constantly zoned out.

Why isn't Cassi on the list? She is an excellent mid. She can clear minion waves easily with W and stay in the back so that she doesn't get ganked.

Yeah, cass is really strong mid.
Especially as a counter to other strong mids.

However, the question of who is best mid, is more then just who can beat who.
If you pretended the other lanes didn't exist. Cass is the strongest mid in the game atm.
She can and will beat anyone else head to head.

But the game is more complex then that.
1. how does the mid react to being ganked? MF is a strong mid, but lacks escape tools. and has low hp. she needs flash mid pretty much, or any decent jungle or even side lane gank will ruin her.
sivirs anti-cc spell shield, trists/corki/ez blink/flash give them huge advantages mid for this. A skill that reveals brush is also a huge advantage when mid.
Cass is ok vs ganks. slow and +speed. Not great. can't reveal brush. at 6 does get a stun.
2. at 6 do they drop tower, or can they gank other lanes/press the exp advantage.
This is where cass hurts. She doesnt get on the hunt to I win drop a tower, or gank a side lane to 3 man drop a tower. Nor anivia E+R 1+2 combo.
She stays pretty consistent throughout. And a Cass with a 3 level advantage on a side lane isn't nearly as scary as a mord, sivir, or anivia. Stronger dots isn't as scary as getting 2 shot, or a mord with 2k worth of hp advantage.
3. are they better side lane?
Same thing with lux. lux is a decent mid, due to strong zoning. And binding/slow to prevent ganks. but those bindings, slows and shield could be used to zone out a duo lane, and babysit a teammate. so why have her mid, when she can make a side lane stronger? cass and caitlynn same thing. Why zone out 1 person, when you can zone out 2?

I voted sivir. She's still the best atm. Sure a few champs can beat her mid in a 1v1. But overall, she is the strongest. and the team benefit of having a sivir level 12 vs everyone else level 9 is immense.
