Faker style. Runes, build etc... try it for yourself.

IT WORKS AMAZINGLY WELL.

AP Quints
AP/lvl Glyphs (don't need no stinking MR when you're a boss)
HP/lvl seals (don't need no stinking armor)
Mpen/Hybrid pen marks

21/9/0 or 21/0/9 depending on champion and opponent.

Faker usually itemizes for damage. You'll frequently see Needlessly Large Rod pickups after each item completion. I've been trying this out with great results.

Lissandra
Flask/Dorans ring start -> Double Dorans -> Zhonyas -> DFG/Deathcap -> Deathcap/DFG...stay blue potted after Deathcap is picked up.

Ahri
Same as Lissandra basically but rush DFG -> Deathcap

You get the idea.

I build Athenes\Abbysal against heavy AP bursters or Chalice vs AP champions that can shove more efficiently than me. If I'm ahead or even in any case I wouldn't get this item.

downvoted by metasheep who think you need armor seals on every champion. pls go.

KR players use these type of runes in solo queue because it gives a mathematical advantage over your opponent in lane. Faker even used this page on some of his Worlds games.

Are you calling Faker a noob?

It has nothing to do with being "fantastic at this game"

It has to do with setting yourself up to outplay your opponent early game while still scaling late game.

VS AD I'm sure Faker uses armor seals, though I'm not sure because the scaling HP is still better in general mid/late game.

Lol...i hate you.

It's kind of like running CDR glyphs on Riven top lane vs AD. The MR runes are wasted for the most part yet most people will just take them by default.

I'm going to take this logic into other roles and come up with more adaptations in my rune pages to start the game at a statistical advantage.

I have 17 rune pages though.

wouldnt the small magic resist be better for you vs a traditional ap mid than the ap per level?

I thought this might be the case before I tried it, but so far I've notice no real issues. I do notice an increase in damage vs my opponents though.

Early game is mostly about farming and occasional harass anyways. I usually start with flask 3 pot so I'm not too worried about sustain.

There's also the dorans 2 pot start when you know you can bully.
