Because no one ever wants to do this. When I can buddy of mine will go Vladimir and I'll take Talon mid. And for whoever said talon is countered by those characters. Somewhat, I would never take talon mid vs morg or xerath. However, usually with some well placed whittles, ahri can be taken down alright.
One game I went talon to counterpick kass. Of course kass went top and renekton went mid vs my team's ap kennan. So I got there and farmed top, and kass left top lane to go back mid. So kennan ran top, and I went mid and took the farm there. Then kass went top, and so what he did was let me take the farm from 2 lanes then i completely wrecked face and got a quadra that game. Hue Hue Hue. Talon is the best mid if counterpicked against the right team.
