I've never seen it work on ranked, but it's seen a fair amount of success in normal games.

AP TF is more about harassing than straight up fights, which is exactly why it's a weaker build compared to AD

The only thing you can do is practice really, since the first 6 levels are make or break.

AP TF: Pros/Cons

Pros:

Good poke
CC
Laning power with blue card
Global ulti
Can break down towers super fast (even faster than AD) with Sheen


Cons:
Squishy
Not the best burst

And poking and good harass if you're against someone who can't zone you (or counter-burst you before you get a gold card off).
And stun bot. And burst.

AD TF might have better sustained damage, but early-mid game TF is all about abusing Destiny ganks. Sustained damage isn't as important for those as the burst damage, and AP TF can do a ton immediately after emerging from the gate (Gold Card stun -> Wild Cards).
And end-game is about abusing Destiny's mobility for split pushing and drawing out the other team for lopsided team fights (in your team's favor).

DFG works nicely on AP TF.

I personally like AD twisted fate better just because the fast attack speed + SOTD + his passive kills people before gold card is over (:
But AP is great fun seeing your PAC and Q do half there hp
and who doesn't like randomly throwing cards and getting kills?

Ya sound like a friend of mine. Who is also, in fact, asian.

Anyway yes AP TF is very good, go look at the EU vs US game, where they had to ban his TF in order to stop him from dominating so hard.

AP TF really is the best build for him
he has low cds and good raitios.
TF has no steriod except his E which only gives 15% AS at max lvl

Nocturnes W gives 20% AT lvl 1
All other ranged AD carries outdamage him.
