Seeing more and more tank teams these days like Garen, Malphite, Shen, Tryndamere, Taric, Sion, Singed, and Udyr.

I like playing casters and building up AP and I'm not really seen as a threat to them. I want to force them to buy magic resist to try and stop my power but I don't know how to play to have that power in the first place.

Who would you guys recommend for dealing with all tanks teams that I can build AP with?

For one, use MAGIC PENETRATION. IT HELPS. There's Abyssal Scepter and Void Staff. Also, you can use Sorcerer's Boots. Also, runes. For champs, use whoever you like using. CC is very useful against DPSers.

Well, Amumu does %health damage, but he's more of a tank, not a caster. Tanks build to counter AP burst if they're smart and they see it coming, so you either play aggressive early and catch them when they don't have very high resists or build survival also to counter them trying to outlast you.

I usually play tanks and the only caster I've seen put the hurt on me is when I got my MR up is Anivia and Malzahar to some degree.

There may be others, but Malzahar I think is pretty good vs tanks because of his spell which does damage per second based on a % of their max health. Add that with a Deathfire and you can make a significant dent against a tank.

Karthus' steady DPS of magic can ruin a tank, especially if he has Lich Bane.

kassadin does fine, takes a couple assaults, but with golem you can relentlessly jump in and out taking down chunks of their hp at a time.

Malzahar seems to be the best mage to kill tanks. His Null Zone spell lasts for 5 seconds and can do 10% of the max health of the tanks if you have 200 AP in magic damage. You can take about 1/2 the health of all tanks on their team if they stay in there for the whole 5 seconds. You can use Mal's ult to hold them in place for your team to rolfstomp them too.

If they run aways from the Null Zone, you get free shots at the running cowards. Have a few coordinated stuns on your team, pot Null Zone and kiss the tanks goodbye. Void Staffs will help a bunch with the MR stacking, but if you have 3 AD/AS champs on your team, they'll be more worried about stacking armor.
