I would think that Xerath would be a good counter. He's pretty similar to her in that he has crazy burst at 6, but he has better range. Just makes sure not to use W much so you don't get hit with poison. ;)

I also like Zilean as a counter to bursty mids. He has great poke (which you don't have to aim), and his ult says "Oh you're gonna try to kill me with your ult? Well I'll just use my ult. COUNTER ULTED!" Even if he takes some harass, they will take some harass too, you just have to make sure you can get your ult off in time!
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

I don't know why a lot of people tend to use AP Zilean as a carry in mid. Sure it works and is fantastic counter to Ahri but against Cassiopeia it may not be so undignified. One does not simply approach Cassiopeia and survive unscathed =\ (and then Zilean's only damage comes from Time Bomb and I've decided to revolutionize my AD Zilean which has became quite popular lately)

The best way to counter Cassiopeia is to start Boots 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.

Not mention Galio i'm disappoint!

This just in: countering her with LeBlanc while letting Skarner babysit the lane and Flash + ult constantly after level 6 works well too (QQ 2-6 Cassio game because of that)

Thanks to jhoijhoi for the signature!
