With SS: clarity and ignite. You need to be carefull early game, but as soon as you got about 6 stacks, you are able to domiate the game
I should probably add in Leviathan, since Kassadin is based around getting kills anyway it'll help you gain some cheap survivability and not waste much time getting your build up.

First, you say Ghost + Ignite is the best SS set-up, but then you say the "best" Kassadin player uses Exhaust. Makes no sense.
Second, Severus is nowhere near the best Kassadin player. He made way too many mistakes during WCG to deserve that title.
Third, I've tested everything I placed in my guide. Like my guide says, Ghost is totally useless because you're screwing yourself by wasting a slot for a summoner spell you don't even need. Getting both Exhaust or Clarity is a much better choice if anyone else on your team gets Clairvoyance and you have no need for it.
