What are some effective ways to play against a mid yi? I generally play lux or syndra, and this usually gets picked against me lately. I normally live through it, and hold my tower. However he can always zone me and I end up severly underfarmed. This is generally how it goes.

I try to last hit, alpha strike. I harrass a bit while its down, then he clears with as again and runs back to meditate off my harass. Its very hard to punish for as because he doesn't get put of position from using it, and if I do get to punish he heals it off.
So is this a lane matchup I should be bugging my jungler about for help, or am I doing something wrong?

Note: I am not saying he is op, I'm only asking for tips on how to play lane against him.

Get your jungler and 100-0 him
Save your stun for when he Meditates (you or your jungler should have one)

AP Yi is stronger in teamfights lol.

Edit: Since some don't understand I will explain. All it takes is for 1 of the enemy to be a little low, get a kill/assist & repeat your Q. When your Q does 1k damage & you use it 4 times in a row.... see what I mean?

Annie I agree on but Kat is horrible against him.

Barrier is a suprisingly good counter to AP yi as you can bait him in thinking he can finish you then run off, then when he goes in, barrier, survive the burst, and blow him up under tower. Works in teamfights too.
