I believe it would be a good idea for you to try out Nocturne and Renekton before making any changes to Irelia.
@ Off-Topic Note:
I wouldn't be surprised if Trundle will get nerfed in the future either. No one uses him, so no one can see his full potential yet. Once someone brings him up to high elo play, he will gain popularity. It's a common and ridiculous trend, yet it's there.
