Soraka is very powerfull champion as well as support or AP carry. I found Soraka as excellent AD carry. This sounds weird but she is very powerfull AD Carry. Infuse cost 0 mana and it is your main ability. You can easily refresh mana of your lane partner and also you can do big troubles to your enemies. AD Soraka still has powerfull heals, which means Astral Blessing and Wish. This can be very helpfull when you are in troubles. Last spell is called Starcall. Starcall is for AD Soraka good support damage spell. You can use it for bigger aoe dps. Soraka´s sickle which means her autoattack is slow so you need atack speed runes and quickly buy Phantom dancer.

For great laning u need perfect line partner. Here they are.
Best lane partners:
Taric - Taric is best lane partner for AD Soraka. Taric has stun, which can be deadly for enemies. Soraka grants magic resist, taric grants armor. Soraka has silence as well. Triple heal lane + mana regeneration = Infinity HP and Mana.
Sion - Sion is too good choice, he has stun and big damage.
Alistar - Alistar is CC king, he can give enough time for AD soraka to strike enemy down.
Cho´gath - Cho´gath has deadly silence + Q AoE CC and lot of damage.
Good lane partners:
Ryze - Ryze has nice snare and great damage, but he is too very squishy.
Morgana - Morgana has snare and perfect shield.
Lux - Luxs snare is very nice, she can snare more than 1 enemy, she can slow your opponent as well. Her damage output is nice.
Best summoner spells:
Surge is pretty nice spell. When the surge is active it gives you more attack speed and ability power for ur heals and starcall.
Ignite will decrease opponent's healing for 50% and do some pretty damage over time. Its necessary to get this spell.
Ghost is pretty nice spell for AD Soraka, sometimes you will have problem with your slow movement speed when u need to escape or finish your opponent.
Next summoner spells:
You can easy mess with your opponent with that spell.
Double heal ? Why not triple heal ?
