When laning against a Varus, who would you say counters him best in mid lane?

EDIT: I misread, didn't see mid lane.

Any really aggressive, and mobile caster. Ahri, Viktor, Rumble, Fizz to name a few. He doesn't like "in your face" champions.

You mean botlane or midlane?

Varus is a poke AD carry with no real escape mechanism except for an AoE slow or an ulti waste (also no real chasing mech either). Best Team compositions versus him are mobile ad carries with aggressive cc supports. Janna is probably the best support due to slow for his slow and ****up. Tristana, Graves and Caitlynn should do just fine, as well as Vayne and Draven. The first 3 have more reliable GTFO/GTFI moves tho.

- edit - He is also mana dependant, so you can take/ban Soraka and outlive his poke
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

The reason I ask is that I like to 1v1 a friend of mine just for fun. He builds Varus mostly attack speed.

In this situation, would you say that a LeBlanc, Orianna, or a Cassiopeia could beat him if built as a glass canon?

Cassiopeia can beat varus with ease. Varus is actually a very easy champion to kill by himself. He's got a good (But easy to anticipate) poke, and not much else to him. He hates things being up in his face, and he hates mobility.

Leblanc or Cass should both be able to destroy him.

Yea, when Varus was released a lot of people went mid with him. Then they quickly realized he sucks without a support backing him, and they also realized he falls off mid-late game unlike other carries.

Mid Varus?
Anyone with a stun could destroy him easily. Snares are also nice. Just some hard CC with some low cool-downs will easily make an AD carry mid die.

@Cooper, yes Varus is the opposite of say... Vayne. Varus is at his strongest at the beginning of laning phase because his Piercing Arrow does ******ed damage early game and he has very good base stats, but his damage starts to fall off late game and his abilities don't help his output (Other than Blighted Quiver). Carries like Vayne, and Graves however shine at endgame, and their abilities greatly improve their damage output.
