I will always say this: KNOW HOW TO MODIFY YOUR BUILD DEPENDING ON WHO YOU'RE PLAYING. As an AP carry, your build shouldn't vary too much from the one I've given you, but if you're constantly having to return to base, add some defensive items in that will help you survive better/longer. The main reason most carries lose the early game battle at mid is because they are forced to return to base and lose valuable XP while the opponent pushes their tower and gains more XP. If you can master modification of your build, you'll be able to take on anyone. However, if you can master this specific build with Morgana as a carry, you can run train all over mid.
Dark Binding should be next, as it is your source of causing the opponent more and more damage. Your attack sequence should be Q + W early game, then tack on your ult when you get that to secure the kill.
Black Shield is worth getting one point in early game, but then should be ignored until later levels. It will allow you to save some damage early game, but as you will be playing offensively most of the time, you're better off putting your points into Dark Binding and Tormented Soil.
Soul Shackles: It's your ult. Max it asap, Duh.
Mid game should be focused on maintaining control of mid while throwing in ganks where you can. Using Q and her ult on unsuspecting opponents, combined with the help of your teammates, will score you quick kills that you'll need to stack Mejai's and really get a big leg up over your opponents. Team fights will begin at this point, and you should be focused on trapping opponents that your team can take down, as well as dealing out massive amounts of damage with your ult and Q + W. Always stay conservative if you are stacking Mejai's; you shouldn't be initiating any fights and should have one or two people in front of you for big team fights.
Late game Morgana will take down lots of enemy champions. Pop Black Shield on yourself, hit Q + W, and Flash in to a fight and pop your ult to deal out tons of damage while your teammates hopefully clean up after you. Keep in mind your passive Spell Vamp; if you use it well, you won't have to return to base except to buy items.
