looking for a top laner with a strong lategame, and a relatively easy time getting there

Grass is superior to Normal.

Have you seen Frostblade Irelia's ass?

The choice is obvious.

Jax is easier to shut down but carries harder

Irelia doesn't die

Easy time getting there? it's hard to say they're both quite powerful when fed but Jax tends to carry harder.

Irelia is a lot less susceptible to early harass though.

Irelia's a good bit easier during mid-laning and not much weaker than Jax late game.

People who are saying Jax is weaker in lane have no idea what they're talking about.

Jax all the way bro.

I say Jax. Irelia has some wickd (teehee) sustained damage even when built with just defensive stats and maybe a little attack speed. But she just doesn't offer the burst Jax does. Jax has a lot more variety in build path. Easier cc (and AoE to boot).

Only real qualms is that he doesn't have a reset mechanic on his mobility move, and he has no natural sustain. But you can adapt for that. Go Jax.

On the other hand "I just played jax" is quite good.

Soo many choices...

I would go with Mantheon, but that's only because I love playing him to the point of having an easy time against any opponent.
