I think Xerath sticks out more in terms of how he works. You need to utilize the gigantic amount of range you get on him to use him properly, so you need to get a different mindset when playing him, compared to standard AP casters.

Syndra is somewhat gimmicky too, but she can be easier to get a grip of, because she still acts like a normal mage. She has insane burst potential, but is one of the hardest mages to master.

In terms of viability, I honestly cannot say. Both aren't top picks, but both have this good element of surprise to their unpopularity. I cannot count how often a Xerath has backfired a towerdive with a simple stun that no one expects for some reason, or how often Syndra bursts down a greedy carry that wanted to chase her after a team fight.
