Well since his ip reduction I am sure there gonna be a lot more ppl playing him now. I know how to counter his ult, but what is good strategy/champion to punish him in lane?

The best way to counter Karth in the lane is to start with boots and try to be unpredictable with your movement. This way he isn't going to be able to hit you with his Lay Waste spam.

Do this while moving up to him and you can nuke him. As long as you can keep dodging his nukes you can harrass him freely. Just watch you don't get caught in the wall.

As a Karthus player, I can say: the more you dodge in the lane, the more I can last hit creeps easily, and outfarm you. The one I hate the most when I played as Karthus is a long-range champ, namely Lux.

I dodge you and make YOU damage in return. :-)

Unless you have a plan in which to safely harass Karthus with some sort of extra long range, he's the kind of champion that when he plays defensively is impossible to harass with the majority of the champions. In which case, the best thing you can do is farm. You don't have to shut a champion down to win the lane, just farm better. If you are getting harassed, well you should be able to dodge those with boots.

- boots => dodge + harass
- burst him down with help from the jungler - he is squishy and has no escapes (only flash + his slowing wand)

Send some fighter with mobility on mid, like Irelia, or a stun like sion, so you can take half of his life on a atack, and make him play defensively.

If you cannot dodge, stand in creep wave. Make Karthus push the lane every time he lands a Q(and only do half damage to you) and get your jungler to gank.
