Karthus the death singer Karthus is a great character in the right hands. He can kill any champion in a matter of seconds with a great pinky finger, (for pressing Q)excellent accuracy for Wall of Pain, and knowing when to turn on the Rip-You-Apart move :). I will not recommended Karthus for people that have no experience with a AP user. You need Magic Penetration runes, and a decent mastery build.

Early Game
You're as squishy as can be. Luckily for you your Lay Waste is excellent for damage. If you take Middle, NEVER stop moving. The enemy Champion you're fighting will taunt you and you'll take damage. Harrass with Lay Waste, and when the champ is in the 500 or below, put *** behind them, turn on the Rip-You-Apart move, and hit accurate with Lay Waste, if you don't get the kill the target will most likely be less than 250, use your ult :).

Mid-Game
This is where Karthus takes place. Not much to say, you look for groups of minions, and when you need to gank. Always put *** behind the champions and start Lay-Wasting away. If your targets run under 400 use your ult on them. Always watch the lanes that you're not in. If a champion is low, use your ult :)

End Game
Now you're squishy again. Let your team to the heavy duty, and just support them if they need you.
