Your trade vs kassadin would be great.

Silence & starcall. If you get silenced & hurt first, it doesn't matter cause you have a heal.

not being a bad mid is usually the counter to Kassadin.

Kassadin is quite a hard champ to play with and against. But he has quite the cd with his silence he can use it once and then has to wait to use it again. You need to stop him from farming. He has a very weak early game and he can't really push a lane. Pre 6 call for ganks because after lvl 6 he is quite hard to gank if he has flash and rift.

Or you could try what everyone else is doing right now and send an AD caster mid.

I don't really get the thought process behind telling people which champs are and aren't viable mids (talking about soraka) but at the same time asking for help with kassadin. If you're such an expert on mid why do you need help with kassadin?

His silence duration scales as he levels it up, his slow has a surprisingly long range, his mobility is hard to match with any champion out there, and his auto attacks do bonus magic damage and give him mana back on every auto attack once he levels it up.

Now that you know what he can do, you might as well plan ahead. For example, AD lanes counter his passive. Bring lee sin, talon, pantheon, or kha'zix mid, and you have a way to match his mobility while going through his passive. Another thing to do is magic resist runes. Unfortunately, he is going to his you with that silence a lot. It does a lot of damage.

Kassadin is a roamer. ALWAYS call your MIAs, always ward in a manner to see him leave the lane, and always try to stop him from ganking that lane (after you've pushed your lane so his tower takes damage).

Finally, try Morgana. Put up your spell shield every time he shoots his silence. It will block both the silence, and the damage. Even if he harasses you, you have passive spell vamp. Out farm the HELL out of him with your pool, get back all the damage he might have harassed you with, and watch him lose CS while you push him to his tower.

Also try auto attacking him during pre-6 if your champion is ranged. You might not do a lot due to being an AP based champ usually, but his passive will not mitigate the damage.
This guy's basically got the right idea. He's a little hard to lockdown in the roaming/groupfight phase but if you can apply pressure to lane (not difficult, his only AoE clears are his ult and his charged up E) it will usually keep him from roaming. Talon is a massive counter, Elise does good against him, Morgana is a strong option if you can time your shield. Pantheon's overall combo-based style can be beat by Kassadin, but I've found Lee Sin to beat him down, and even post-nerf, Kha Zix is a strong option.

and bully him pre-6.

his only real long ranged harass is his silence. When it's down, hes pretty much helpless. Zone him and dont give him farm.

but he is also kinda weak. as in health. I play him every now and then but like any champ you have your good match ups and bad match ups. So you just have to focus overall
