After I know now nearly all Items of Dominion, this is my suggested Yi-Build for it:

Standard runes and masteries



Summoner Spells:


+

Starting items:



+

You need Berserker's Greaves for the early movement speed and attack speed advantage. At Dominion, cc is not the biggest problem, because you as Yi never want to get into a 3+ man teamfight.

Vampiric Scepter is great for the early lifesteal, so you can hold points longer. Also, this is important to rush the new item The Lightbringer.

Core items:



+++


I consider these 4 items as core for Master Yi. The Lightbringer gives you enough attack speed and an awesome passive, which reveals stealth, Entropy gives you a much needed slow, true dmg and survival, while Sanguine Blade gives you very very much dmg. Also, you get very much lifesteal from it. It is overall a great combo.


Situational Items:



,,, ,(any other known Yi-Item^^ xD.)

Phantom Dancer, because of the increased movement and attack speed, so you can easier capture points. Odyn's Veil against mages. Ionic Spark as a possible replacement for The Lightbringer at a tanky build. Guardian Angel against AD and for a second life.

Other Yi items are Youmuu's Ghostblade, Black Cleaver, etc...

seriously dude? You haven't even played dominion yet, how could you possible know if this build is good or not?
Anyway, this build doesn't really capitalize on the advantage yi would bring to dominion: mobility, movement speed is much more essential than lifesteal in my opinion, and I'm not sure why Entropy would be useful here, yi doesn't really need to slow the enemy to stick to them.

And I think Sanguine blade should straight up replace Bloodthirster altogether, it just makes more sense

Yeah, you can also get Phantom Dancer or only Zeal early instead of The Lightbringer, but then you buy it later. It has great synergy with Yi and lifesteal helps you to keep points. Entropy has also true dmg and hp on it. Also, it is one of the best items to defend your point, because you can slow the enemy in turret range and kill anyone which tries to capture it. And yeah, Sanguine Blade should be the new Bloodthirster. It also syngernises very well with The Lightbringer and Highlander.


And that build is all about numbers and theroity, because the items have really great stats for Yi and syngernise with itself and Yi. This Yi will rape anyone which tries to capture one of your points and is still fast enough to capture enemy points.
He is gonna kill you!!!

Seems pretty good.
I'd go with Ghost/Flash+Exhaust tho.
Yi will be an epic player killer and fast runner.

Flash is a bad choice.
You want Ghost so you can constantly stick to your targets.


Building Yi is pretty simple. Build as a carry so you can constantly fight and consitantly refresh Highlander so you can constantly neutralize and capture points.

Mana isn't too much of an issue. You can use Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration and recall regularly due to high deaths and map size.

Ugh jumping on the spelling bandwagon is irresistible for me when I'm drunk apparently...
Sorry for that, was a a **** move from my part.

About your build; I'd rather wait until dominion is out before I judge it, it's just impossible to do it now. No one of us knows how Dominion will be, so I really can't judge until I've played Dominion.
