Counterpick to Casseopia?

Who counters Casseopia? I play Cass and Ryze as my two mid champs, but if they pick Cass, I can't play Ryze because Cass brutally outclasses Ryze.

Any ideas?

Also, who is another really strong AP mid? I need to learn a third, I'm leaning towards Karthus atm. Ziggs and Ahri feel sub par, Morg and Kass are always banned.

Thanks

Kassadin and LeBlanc both counter all of those

I agree about kass. Fiddlesticks actually also works.

Boots of Speed...

If you can manage to evade the Q 75% of the time, she's not going to do anything worthwhile in the laning phase. That said, it's harder to do than just writing it down, and if she outranges you badly it's one hell of a fight.

If she has blue? Just hang back, she's going to spam all day long and getting hit by 1 Q means eating 2xE for free...

I've had a hard time against a good annie before. If I cant survive her initial burst I'm screwed. If I can...well she's usually screwed then. Also simply the threat of a stun is a deterrent to Cass's natural aggression.

I fail to see why. Gragas counters burst casters because his W significantly reduces the damage of a 1 or 2 skill high damage burst. Cassio's damage relies on low cooldowns and damage over time, which are not significantly reduced by his W. Her skillshots are easier to land than his and have comparable range.

To the OP:

Counter skillshot champions with non-skillshot champions. In addition to the aforementioned Kass and LB, you can face cassi with:

Vlad (if you can survive long enough to get some items, you won't really be killable in lane),

Swain (for the same reason),

Sion (because of the lack of skillshots),

Ahri (not really a skillshot champion, push RWRR and you can burst her down easily)

Any champ with whom you can put damage on her without taking damage in return.

I have really good luck against her as Viktor. Her dots don't do nearly as much with his shield and he has his laser which he can use if she tries to go in to hit you with Q.

Brand is a nice counter to Cass since when he goes into poison you she cannot move for a brief second so you can throw your pillar and hit her dealing more damage than her poison... if she charges you for a E's throw your sear.
