Introduction

Have you decided to play Veigar? Have you decided to win? Then this is the guide for you. In the 20+ games that I've played with him, I have only lost with this build twice. First of all, It is vitally important that you call mid. In mid, you get more minions to feed on. Remember that when you engage an champion, you always want to pretend you're running away, then stun him with Event Horizons. Then basically load as much damage on him as possible, but use Dark Matter first as it is delayed but does a lot of damage.

Farming

While you're in mid, always try to get last hits on with Baleful Strike. That gives you +1 AP permanently if you kill your target with it. I recommend getting blue buff either early on with a good leash, or at higher levels (as in higher than level 11).

Summoner Spells

For Summoner Spells, I use Ignite and Ghost. Ignite lets me do those last hits or do lots of damage quickly to a must-kill target (stunned with your Event Horizons). An alternative to this
is Exhaust. This instead of doing direct damage, allows you to kill him without the aid of direct damage summoner spells.

I use Ghost because if I need to get a getaway or quickly catch up to someone to get that last shot off, Ghost does that perfectly. Flash is a great alternative to this, but it last less, and since Veigar is a fairly fast champion, I think he should increase that move speed rather than just do an instant teleport. You could also use Exhaust to make sure that he is so slow that he never gets away.

Items

If you haven't already noticed, the items greatly favor AP. Basically, just build AP as Veigar, but this order I have noticed works exceptionally well, as Rabadon's Deathcap gives you 30% more AP, even if it was a minion kill with Baleful Strike. The Archangel's Staff is useful because it gives you mana every time you use it, and being a spell caster, Veigar NEEDS mana.
