Well, I was just sitting and looking at the champs I had and decided to theorycraft a bit and wonder why this doesnt happen more often. Im not sure if this should be here tho ^^

Orianna Support - She has a shield, amazing poke, Slow/fast and a great engage/disengage.
Tryndamere in competitive play - He has sustain, he can dive towers with ease and he has a gapcloser
Ezreal jungle - Ive heard alot about this but im not sure how this works :/

I may think of more once I get some ideas. Can you help me with these for now? Thank you!

Tryndamere is critbased, so your early game is pretty luckbased as far as your damage output is concerned.
I guess thats the main reason, why would you pick him if you could go with a top like Jax, Vlad, Darius, Kayle, Riven or Olaf? Don't get me wrong Tryndamere does tremendous (pun not intended) damage if he get's fed but he can also be shut down easily by DoT's (which make his ultimate nearly useless) or just straight Range.
There are others that provide more utility to the team instead of the straight damage he does.

Jungle Ezreal is just a no-no. He's got no CC at all, which is what you are looking for in a jungler in my opinion. I mean, even Nocturne has his fear and Ult.
I don't know about Ez's cleartimes, but I can't imagine him providing anything to the team that no other jungler could do better.

It is quite easy to counterpick a Tryndamere. And even if you pick Tryndamere last, most of the time another top laner will do a better job. He isn't the pro's favorite but he definitely strong. Some Diamond players main Tryndamere top.

Orianna Support: You run out of mana after 5 seconds of fighting. You can spend your money on mana regen but you'll have no wards and you'll be super squishy.

Ezreal Jungle: It really does work and I've carried with it multiple times but I feel like Kayle does the same thing but better. Ezreal has good damage, good mobility and good range. His early game ganks are extremely deadly. However, he is extremely dependant on blue and if he doesn't get fed mid game he WILL suck balls late game.
My AP Xin Zhao guide is on the way!

I got why Tryn is bad :P, just to easy to shut him down.

For Orianna, I only poke with auto attacks and Q them once in a while. I dont lose too much mana in a fight tho since all I really do is use E to shield my adc, Q to position then R. Doesnt take up too much mana. Also, I generally rush a Philo before a Sightstone/Kage so I dont really run out of mana in trades. The only reason as to why you might be using W is to catch up to an opponent really.

For Ezreal, I tried him and his ganks are reallly good especially with red buff but I feel his clear is a bit weak. Maybe I wasnt doing it right?

I honestly don't think Tryn is a bad pick. I find his reputation dependent on player skill and less about his actual viability. There are a handful of diamond players who main Tryndamere and do very well with him. His skill ceiling is very high, but he has very simple mechanics.
+Rep me if i'm useful!
