Flat runes are the obvious early game boosts, but scaling helps mid-late game. What runes (mana regen, health, etc) are appropriate for flat or scaling, and does it truly matter?

By level 10 the scaling rules will start outweighing the flat bonus runes. So it's really your responsibility to decide whether you need an early game boost. For example, I only had flat CDR glyphs because I know with the builds I use, the extra CDR from the scaling runes gets wasted with the 40% cap.

To extend on the idea with the CDR runes, I use per level runes because I don't have the mana to use the CDR early, and I don't have to use CDR so much from items later.

Most of the time, I believe, the per level runes get better so quickly that unless those first very fwe levels matter that much, per level is better, but there are situations when those first levels DO matter that much, so you really need to look at your goals, your champs, and your style to decide.

Yup. CDR per level runes, unless you're a special case like Kennen or Vlad. If it doesn't fit with your build, change the build.
