Threats & Synergies
This annoying piece-of-shit can block all of your attacks, making you have to reorient your ult to at least try to get somewhat of a trade off. This is Sona's biggest counter.
He outdoes Sona. Try to be careful and not let him kill you.
Even with just an Amplifying Tome he does 1/6 of Sona's health with one Q. There is basically no surviving this monstrosity w/o your jungler near. You better rush Banshee's Veil!
Always have a Banshee's Veil with you. You'll win against her if you try hard enough
Banshee's Veil is essential
He just out-does Sona by a landslide. Even escaping can't fix this.
Sure she can out-trade Sona, but if you rush Banshee's Veil then you can block her CC spell which'll lead to you out-trading her.
He can block your ult because of his bullshit passive which leads to a major threat. He also deals a lot of damage and has a lot of range
Haven't fought against Corki, but he seems easy
A Banshee's Veil doesn't even block his CC. He also out-"everything's" Sona.
Back up when his hand swirls blood around it for 4 seconds and you're gtg. That easy!
A skill matchup
Her range and damage can be tough to face against. Make sure you've perfected your escaping ability and bring a Banshee's Veil.
Keep your distance! Ziggs' attacks are moderately easy to dodge if that Ziggs player isn't that good.
Her trapping ability really hurts Sona. A Banshee's Veil is essential but even just that doesn't block her massive damage output.
Haven't fought against a LeBlanc before, but she sounds annoying.
Haven't fought against a Lissandra
She out-"everything's" Sona. A Banshee's Veil doesn't fix this matchup
Tbh Fizz is easier than you think. His only kill potential is with a gank. Sona counters most assassins
Haven't fought against a Kassadin, bu he sounds annoying
Haven't fought against Jayce before.
BANSHEE'S VEIL IS ESSENTIAL!! Also bring Liandry's Torment
Talon just does that much 😒
Haven't fought against Kayle, but she sounds very easy
Haven't fought against Taliyah
Just try to out-CS him and get items early
His mobility, range and damage output are too much for Sona to handle. Even a Banshee's Veil doesn't help.
Syndra's range and CC just tears apart Sona
She outdoes Sona. Bring a Banshee's Veil
My only "Swain" match was a semi-forced AFK match, but he was still annoying
Bring a Banshee's Veil
AKALI IS SO FUCKING EASY TO BEAT (unless you're tired or are constantly missing your ult >.<)
Haven't fought against Zilean
There's no escape...
This bitch has range but is a fighter. Prepare to die
He is super easy to face against, especially with a Banshee's Veil
You have some sustain to block his passive effect. Use a Banshee's Veil
He's basically Zyra with less CC
She can just perma-CC you while her plants will shoot you down.
Aatrox is a melee champ. Try to abuse that
He out-ranges Sona, but bringing a Banshee's Veil along with a Void Staff can help
His dashes and CC are hard to overcome. He'll just trap you with your ult whlie tearing you apart
Only a smart Galio would bring some MR against Sona, but even you can pierce through that with a Void Staff and Morellonomicon. Try to stand back from him though
Azir is super hard to master, so chances are you'll do very good against him
Haven't fought against Ryze, but he sounds easy
