Saying running something like.

Magic pen red
Mana regen yellow
flat magic res blues
movment speed quints

Would this work on any mages?

Yes. This would work on every single ap mana using mid. Would it be optimal on everyone? no. But it will work.
I run almost these exact runes on swain.

Change these mana regen yellows to armor yellows and you get a pretty decent runepage... For Singed.

I don't think this would fit on any damage-oriented mage apart from those who are resource-free or those who are tanky. Or... they simply rely on the spam and they don't care about their scalings, e.g. Swain, Mordekaiser, and so on.
+Rep pls if I helped! One click doesn't hurt :D Check out my first guide featuring Darius (NEED MOAR VOTEZ)!

Swain doesn't rely on spam any more than any "regular" caster, he simply has good base damage and his E buffs his auto-attacks. Spam is what Mordekaiser and Syndra do.

As for what the OP said, yes. Many mages don't rely on flat AP nor do they really need it ( Rumble, Swain, Ryze, etc)

you just listed runes that are VERY viable for many champs. for marks, i'd say it's a must for any mage.

I go just that setup for most mages that doesn't have movement in their skills. On gragas I go pure burst for example, for most others I need MS quints and the rest. At times I exchange one quint for flat health since I wanna trade early.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

Mana regen/lvl is probably better

rest is standard
MR quints are almost always necessary to win lane but on champs like TF you can pick ap/lvl

MS quints are generally worse than flat ap on most champs
some champs use them quite well, like kat kennen vlad
