I have loved playing Veigar lately, but I have a question. Can he be countered out of his full burst in a 1v1? Coupled with ignite, it seems to be able to even kill tanky supports.
3 Types of people that can counter Veigar
1. Shut him down from early game, the obvious one
2. Anyone who can avoid getting stun will be able to counter his full burst (No dark matter, huge damage cut)
3. You burst Veigar fast
So in the end, Leblanc, Kass, Galio, Ryze (Due to Banshee as a core build and no AP), Morgana, Cassiopedia are all strong picks against Veigar
I think Katarina can counter him pretty easy.
If he casts stun and Kat teleports and ults, Veigar is a gonner.

Ryze is basically anti-Veigar. Anytime a veigar is picked and the other team hasn't claimed a mid yet, there will be a Ryze.
Ryze, Kat, and Talon all screw up Veigar's day pretty well.
LeBlanc would probably also work in that she can shut him down early game and prevent him from farming up his Q.
I've always crushed Veigar as Kat, but I suspect a skilled one could still get me.
Ryze is an easy fix, like erryone says
I've also bursted him out on Leblanc, shut him out of mid pretty hard which ruins Veigar as you know.
I think Sivir is a good counter too. Her spell shield can block veig's stun easily.
Talon with a QSS.
Late game you either need to ambush him, or burst him before he can burst you. A QSS can help.
Early game it shouldn't be too hard to shut him down as his laning is quite weak.
