This post should be short and sweet. Not looking to drag this out any longer than I have to. Who counters Cassiopeia, and how should I alter my playstyle when facing her?
I never considered this a problem, buts he's reaching FoTM status, and I don't know how to counter her, and I don't know of anyone who does. So I thought I'd ask in a thread. Thank you!

I feel like Kass counters Cass. Maybe Maokai too.
Maokai because of the passive giving him health and the gap closer into a knockup makes him kinda strong in stopping her whole QEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE combo.

She is fast and hits hard. I like Vlad :D

Sustain and out farm her all day

Or you could pick Talon :) (Karthus?)

Galio has gotta be the hardest counter... o:

I've also been working on some unique counters to the AP mid metagame, which I may get around to posting up eventually ^_^

In terms of picks I'd say the best bet would be 'anti-AP' mids like Kassadin and Galio. Talon might do well as well but I don't see him played often anymore so I'm not 100% sure.

The most important thing, however, is to dodge the poison. Seriously.

Boots of Speed are pretty hard counters...

Kassadin is only good against her if you don't get **** on too hard pre-6
Galio is probably -the- counterpick to her
Standard anti-mages like Talon or Pantheon work pretty well against her as well
I'd imagine Ryze and LeBlanc would be able to do well against her
Oh and Vlad does not beat her, just throwing that out there

Galio doesn't counter Cass... he can do well against her (in comparison to other AP mids) and can "hold his own" but no not counter.

The best way to counter Cassiopeia is to start Boots of Speed Health Potionx3. She's extremely powerful in lane with a lot of high DoT that can leave ppl really scared. Dodge her Q and try not to get poisoned. If you do, step back. She's really squishy and easy to gank, so call for jungle help if needed.

Caster Counters (just some suggested ones):
Kassadin is actually not a good counter to Cassiopeia. Being melee he gets hit by Qs much easier and is eventually forced to give up a large amount of cs. His burst is often not enough especially when under farmed.

What CasterMaster said ^ +rep

Also, I find it quite easy to approach her with Ziggs;

Avoid her stuff, apply passive (tricky and ballsy) and a good set of mines connected to a bomb and you will have her respect.

You maybe will not outdamage her, but you can control the battlefield.
