Is Graves really strong on this new patch?

I've just used Graves top with a tanky build {{item:3071}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3102}} {{item:3156}} against a Renekton. Early game Renekton couldn't do anything to me, I would just harass him constantly and he couldn't deal damage to me due to my E. Of course I can't judge the overall viability of a champion or build just with one battle. But now Graves can deal amazing damage with just a few offensive items. He has really good base damage and has a resistances steroid on his E. I wouldn't be surprised if Graves started to be used as a tanky top laner, given how his range is still too short to be an ADC. Overall Graves seems to be really strong on this new patch. I want to test this build more times and see if it is viable for ranked use.
