Would like some Master Yi advice

This will probably be the last topic I make on this board, considering I seem to be becoming quite a bit better at LoL in general, but I'm still stuck on one thing most of the time:

I play Master Yi, as I've learned I like him a lot and am quite good at him, but for some reason I cannot seem to do well at the beginning of a game. I know he's a carry style player so he's not meant to do so well at the beginning, but I would like to know some basic tips for him.

Thus far I've figured out I like the Lifesteal build the best, as it allows for maximum killing later on at lvl 16 on because he does so much damage that only players who put a lot of work into attack damage or ability power (200+) can keep up with how much Yi can drain at 65% drain with Highlander and Wuju Style active. (Plus the bonus damage and Unique Aura that the Stark's Fervor I use helps with not only my own abilities, but others who are around as well)

So I would like to ask for some other tips and hints for Master Yi for the beginning game.

TL;DR - Anyone have any good hints and tips for Master Yi during early game times.

Some tips to keep in mind early:

1 - If you use Alpha Strike to harass early, make sure to count the number of enemy minions in the lane. If there are 4 or less, AS will hit the enemy champs even if you target a minion. This keeps you from putting yourself in a bad position when the AS ends by targeting a champ.

2 - Don't attack an enemy champ unless your double-hit is ready to proc.

3 - My god does Yi need mana!! I almost always go Clarity on him even though I know I shouldn't. Makes his early game so much more bearable....
