General Playthrough:

Shaco is great for harrasing the people in your lanes. Going AP allows shaco to do so with great succsess, as the more AP shaco has, the more damage your shivs and jack in the boxes will do. When laning always try to keep harrasing the squishy, so that once they are low health you can decieve or shiv to get the kill. Going AP with shaco makes him squishy, this is a pure pvp build, it is designed to do tons of damage to other enemy players, not minions, towers, or creeps, so keep an eye on your health when fighting minions, and DO NOT TRY TO SOLO TOWERS, as you can do with a standard dps shaco. Try to keep a constant golem buff on you as often as possible, while harrasing champs you drain alot of mana, and the gold and buff that golem gives you will help you continue to do so. Jack in the boxes are great for two reasons: 1. you can place multiple jacks in an area to set a trap for enemy champions, since you are using an AP build, they will do a nice number of damage 2. Jacks can help you and other teammates escape in a sticky situation, since they have a fear, they will slow your attackers down while you and your teammates run away. The power of jack in the boxes with AP shaco:

Who to lane with and who to lane against:

Try to lane with:
-tanks
-DPS champions
-ranged champions
(pretty much tanks and any other champs that are good at harrasing)

Do not lane against:
-tanks
-ranged
-or any champ with large amounts of lifesteal
(laning against tanks and ranged makes it hard to harras, and laning against a champion with large amounts of lifesteal simply has no point, they will just recover the damage you deal to them, unless you have help from other champions)

Summoner spells:

Try to stick with:
-ignite
-ghost
-teleport
-smite
(ignite adds some extra damage to help you kill your opponent, while ghost adds a bit of speed for escaping, along with your decieve skill, ghost can make your pretty hard to chase. Teleport works so that you can switch back and forth between lanes quickly, or teleport to jack in the boxes that you have hidden on the map. Smite is a good skill to have with an AP shaco, since you will have no lifesteal items, along with jacks and shivs it allows you to quickly kill various creeps while taking minimal damage.)

Bad spells:
-flash
-exhaust
-revive
-cleanse
-clarity
