In theory, he should get a stupid amount of souls from the solo farm, has the tankiness and harass to keep himself alive, and can really help out your jungle in ganks when he comes by. To me, he seems like he'd be an excellent top.

But I don't own him + am bad at the game, hence the topic. Opinions?

Poor poking. Unless he does not CS and let his Q build up, he has no way to do a damage trade where he does not lose out. His base damage is simply too low without the ridiculous AD scaling on his Q passive.
A game that promotes slavery and gambling under the illusion of 'friendship' and 'sportsmanship' is automatically an awesome game. - dydt

He can top just fine. Strong free poke and good disengage with Ult+E.

His poke really isn't that bad.

Problem is souls are useless if he cant collect them, and having to go walk through a creep wave when playing someone a big bruiser, I don't think he can go toe-to-toe.

That's what I was thinking, but in theory, couldn't he just E them away, or have his jungler camp his lane for worse-case scenario?

He can definitely E away certain tops. Problems arise against certain tops that can re-engage on him. Xin would have his way with Thresh. As would Lee Sin

A lot of solo top champions have kits designed solely to output/mitigate the most damage 1v1 to win their lane. If a champion with a **** ton of CC/utility and a kit/stats based around a lategame passive that gives him multiple limitless free stats as the match goes on can fight these guys he's probably broken.
