This is a backdoor build for Master Yi. Which means the primary focus is on pushing and taking out towers and inhibitors.
Early game laning, you just want to play normally, getting as much cs as you can. I like to go bottom lane. Feel free to get a kill or two, as long as you don't have any deaths. If you have died once, give other people kills. You are going to be dying a lot, so you don't want to be worth a lot of gold. However, that does not give you permission to feed. Try not to die. Also, try to get some hits on the tower when you can.
When mid game comes around, look for exposed towers. Then either walk there or teleport, use wuju style and your ulti and possibly surge. You also want to be pushing a lot, even to the point of overextending. If you die a lot by this point, that's ok. You won't be worth much gold to them anyway.
Late game you will want to focus primarily on backdooring. If you don't think you can take a tower or inhib in one go, place a ward next to it then teleport to the ward after you respawn and finish it off.
