Rod of Ages-This item is cool for Sona because it give you HP,MP and decent amount of AP but the reason why i don't get it is because it is just too expensive and i'd rather buy a second Archangel's Staff for that amount of gold.
Eleisa's Miracle-This item is awesome.It gives you much needed mp/5 and tenacity and also hp/5 which is always good to have.And it's very cheap,too so i'd recommend it if you don't like one of the items in the main build.
Lich Bane-This item is for the kind that like to deal massive amounts of damage.It gives you magic res,AP,Mana and Movement Speed but what really is cool about it is it's passive.Combined with your own passive you can deal around 700-800 damage with a single shot!If you want to buy this item put it in the place of Archangel's Staff.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter-This item is good because it gives you some health which means more survivability,also it gives you AP and a passive which slows enemies when you hit them with your Q which is also good for letting your allies chase them down and kill them but i don't really buy it that often.
Void Staff-Get this item if you are facing a heavy MR/Tank team and you can't penetrate through their defences(though it's not your job actually).
Deathfire Grasp-A useful item if you're facing a tank team with a loooooot of health
Chalice of Harmony-This little cup here can give you a lot of mana regen if you're low but late game you won't really need it.
Guardian Angel-I know some people will think i'm crazy because i recommend this item but it's just an option if you get targeted a lot and die when your team needs you and you don't have Teleport to get there fast,but it's not really good overall.
so you don't need kills and last hits that much,you should rely on assists.Clairvoyance nearby bushes when you can to check for ganks or Clairvoyance the other lanes's bushes to help your allies and stay behind you teammate,you don't want to die!
Another VERY important thing is positioning in teamfights.You want to be behind your team healing them,speeding them up,stunning with your ult and hitting with your Hymn of Valor for some extra help.If you stay behind your team you'll be safe and you'll get assists in order for your Mejai's Soulstealer to stack up and boost your AP.
