The recent change to molten shield helps her a lot, however she relies on the other team not having an assassin or tank sit on her during team fights, or even team fights happening and the enemy team needs to clump.
I am glad more mages are seeing use in touneys now. Maybe i should bust out some AP Malz top sometime soon.
Vi also needs to be higher on the Bot lane Tiers. Double gap closer post-6, decent steroids, and good wave clear make her really strong. She can beat some of the top laners like Jax, Diana and Yorick all throughout the game. Also, her Q is bugged such that if you charge it and try to cap a tower, it will reset the CD and refund the mana, so you can do this infinitely if someone is trying to harass you while you are capping but cannot get a clear shot.
