AP carry or AP mid?

Ryze, vlad, morde, galio, cho'gath, rumble are all tanky & AP based champions that can play mid. Vlad, rumble & cho generally go top though.

The honest truth of the matter is there is no AP carry that you speak of. At least no true AP carry. Sure you can play malphite or alistar or galio as an AP carry, but in order to make them viable in that respect you have to sacrifice what makes them a tank in the first place. And even if you could manage to get their power to the same level as a true AP carry like Ryze, Morgana, Ahri, Cassiopeia, etc. You don't have the necessary burst or kit to survive in a team fight. What makes the tank such an essential role is their ability to take hits during team fights. Riot has made the balance of champions such that each champion has room for adjustment but there is still a build that is the build for them. You don't see those champions in mid or carrying the team with the most kills because that is not how they are meant to be played. When up against the champions who are meant to be played that way you will find yourself at a disadvantage. My suggestion would be that if you want to play an AP carry simply learn how to survive more and take less hits.

Karthus (built a bit tankier) and Ryze are two good choices.

Swain and Mordekaiser are ESPECIALLY tanky, if you build on some defense.

If you try out Ryze, I suggest a full mana per level rune page, or something very close to that. You'll have 1000 more mana by level 18, fully letting you only AP and tanky items without having to stack up an early goddess tear.
