Really good.
Cooler than Freddie Jackson sippin' a milkshake in a snowstorm.

His early game isn't the best - he'll often lose trades with a lot of the common bruiser tops, so you'll need to be careful if they have a gap closer. You have to just wear them down and outlast them with the fact that you are manaless and have sustain. Then you either force them out of lane, or get them low enough that you can all in them. It helps if you pick him into a jungler with some CC.

Overall a pretty strong champ.

This is just from my experience in playing against Vlad, though - I don't play him myself.

Basically stupid good after he picks Revolver and starts building Rylais and Zhonyas.
I'm the best player here. The rest of you aren't as good as me-ninja1357

Really crappy before his revolver, after first item and some levels, one of the best top laners.

He's better against champs without much movement. When playing Vlad you don't want people in your face while laning until mid game. After you have Revolver, Sorc-boots, Haunting Guise and are level 9 though, his power really starts to shine.

He's weak until level 9

After that it's impossible to stop him from farming
