Kai'Sa has a brilliant knack for attacking and attacking fast. So, Lethal Tempo is perfect for making sure her attack speed is fast.

Triumph and Legend: Bloodline are both some great runes to take on her to give her some sustainability in fights.

Taking the Inspiration tree is also another good option as secondary runes.
