Over other AP casters?

I think he's generally considered a worse pick because he's squishy, slow and can't farm his Q unless bot (in which case he's more easily ganked). I'd like to think there are comps that he would work well with top, but haven't tested it myself...

At the risk of sounding negative-
No.

Depends on how you build him.

Having played Veigar, even in Classic, he's a ninja. Your best bet is to build your boots first thing. You'll still have five slots free to build AP with.

If CDR capped he can toss out his stuns pretty often and he can blow up AP characters pretty quick. It's a different play style than classic.

Not very useful. Consider:

Passive: Not as effective due to rampant mp5 on Dominion
Q: Cannot be farmed
W: Often useless for 1v1 and 2v2's, and fewer creeps means this is less efficient to farm.
E: Good, very good stun.
R: Who else is going to have Karthus levels of AP?

^This.

The best thing he has going for him is his stun. You can make it work with certain team compositions. However, there's a reason that the champ has a 40% win/loss ratio.

Malz, Ahri, Ryze, Brand, all much better.

I personally think Veigar can win games, however he doesn't fit the Dominion playstyle. You can't farm his q and his r doesn't work too well since most champs you encounter are of an AD variant and r doesn't scale off that. However, his stun is amazing. It wins teamfights. Also, Dominion's gold passive gain is very useful in helping Veigar get his items to mitigate the fact he can't farm his q.

That's a veigar recent veigar thread that dished out a lot of proper info about him.

Is he useable? Absolutely. Does he have a high skill ceiling? Relatively. Is he team composition dependant? Surely. Given all this, is he a good pick over other mages? Depends.
