Threats & Synergies
Her poke is less damage than yours and have little counter against you.
Annoying Q and E at times but skills quite limited and little damage on you. Couldn't heal up herself unless she hits her Q which could be dodged easily.
Roaming causes the ADC to be exposed to could allow Sona to poke down ADC in early game.
Annoying at times but still limited damage in early game.
May seems to a counter but his hooks are easily dodgable with minion waves around. Long CD on hooks too allowing Sona to poke him down.
More vulnerable but his hooks are still quite dodgable in a balanced minions waves.
Early game maybe weak but after 6 he is quite a threat with his hook.
Another poking champion but her ult has less CC than Sona's and could be abused when her ADC does not combi well with her.
Her Snare is annoying and high damage after 6 could be a threat to Sona. But still an even match up.
Her poke are dangerous but more mana consuming than Sona.
Her poke and sheild give her a slight advantage over Sona.
Her rooting is ridiculously long at 2.5s, but gain spelltheif charge pretty cheaply too.
His stun and damage is quite a threat early game.
Very easy early game target to stack spellthief but his sheild can cancel your ultimate.
Another annoying tank which could destroy you if your adc have not enough damage.
By far, the ultimate counter for Sona, 3 of her 4 skills can stun. Her Q can go past minions making Sona unable to poke her from safe distance. Her ult can stun an area and a combo with Q and E can leave you stun forever.
AP Build Sona's Strengths
With ROA rush as first items, your AP and Mana scalling quickly into Mid game, with a strong mana refund passive, Sona could be quite a threat to opponents.
Coupled with Max CDR at 45% and ultimate hat, her skills are literally always ready, eg her W at max skill is 4s CD, with an aura lasting for 3s, you are actually on CD for 1s only.
Redemption would be a better item to many others, but Sona, heal and sheild can actually provide more help than redemption.
