About This Team Comp

Akali and Karthus have proven themselves as a great Duo Carry setup. Both of them are high impact Tier 4 Carries covering both AD and AP damage. Their abilities also synergize well with each other, since Akali will deal a lot of damage to the enemy corner, which then gets prioritized by a Karthus Ult to deal the final blow. Make sure Akali is always on the opposite side of the enemy carry and you will win fights very quickly.

In early game you usually run a Superfan Opener with either Olaf or Kennen as your Headliner. For the most part your goal is to field a strong board and rush towards Level 8 in Stage 4-2 to get access to Tier 4 Headliner. Thanks to recent buffs to Viego you now have access to three powerful Tier 4 Headliners that can easily help you stabilize.

Once you're stabilized with Level 8 you want to push for Level 9 and cap out your board with Legendaries likes Yorick. You can also keep an eye out for a second Pentakill Emblem to reach 10 Pentakill as a potential win condition. Avoid aiming for 3 Star Tier 4 units unless you are completely uncontested.

Best Case Scenario is to push for Level 8 in Stage 4-2 and find either Karthus or Viego Chosen. Akali is good Headliner if you already have Pentakill Emblem. You care more about them being 2 Star and less about Chosen trait, since this comp is fine running only 5 Pentakill anyways. If you had a weaker opener you can push for Level 8 in Stage 4-5 instead. Can replace Kennen and cut down for 3 Superfan once you find good replacement.

Depending on your Headliner you can end up with either 5 or 7 Pentakill in your late game baord. If you have Pentakill Headliner, try to aim for 2 Pentakill Emblems to reach 10 Pentakill as a win condition. Can play 3 or 4 Superfan depending on your setup. Mordekaiser*3 can also act as additional win condition.

Akali is great with Pentakill Emblem and allows for an easy 7 Pentakill Setup. Other Emblems aren't as important.

Item Builds

Executioner

Akali core item build is usually a combination of sustain items and making her more tanky. If she can heal herself back up after using her ability she is capable of cleaning up the entire enemy board.
