Like so many conflicts, this war split families. One side proclaimed themselves as beings of perfect order and justice, fighting to unite the world under their law and strong central governance. Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded ''fallen.'' Morgana was not innocent, having plumbed forgotten ways to gather forbidden might to become a powerful mistress of the black arts. This goal was driven by her obsession to defeat the general of the opposition's army - her sister, Kayle. While the two were in fact birth-sisters, Kayle struck the first blow by disowning any filial connection when Morgana refused to join her cause. Eventually, Morgana grew in power enough to not only reach, but challenge Kayle. As the time approached when the two would meet in what could be their final conflict, Morgana was suddenly summoned to Valoran. At first, Morgana made a deal with the League's summoners to fight in exchange for greater power. With the advent of Kayle into the League, Morgana now willingly fights in the League of Legends for the privilege of being able to destroy her sister again, and again, and again. She lies in wait for the day the bonds of the Institute of War no longer hold her, and on that day she plans to destroy Kayle once and for all and return home a hero.

Chapter 1

Hey, this is my first build, so don't be to harsh on me :)
I'll shortly explain the choices I made in this build.
Spells
Ignite: I use this spell mostly on champions with alot of health. I open with a Tormented Soil and a Dark Binding. After that I use ignite and just start autoattacking till they are down (if done right this should do it).
Flash: This skill is nice if you need to catch up on other champs to shoot your Dark Binding at them. But flash also offers some great survival. With Rod of Ages you have alot of health for a caster. If they try to gank you, it's no problem, you can take some hits before you flash away. If they run after you, you can just trow a Dark Binding at them, or even a Tormented Soil as they always tempt to try and dodge it, wich gives you a lead. Flash saved my life a dozen of times.

Skills:
I always go for Dark Binding at the start, if you co�¶rdinate things well with your team you can almost assure a first blood (unless they flash of ghost sometimes). It always payed off for me.
Beside for the skill order above go with this prio order (for endgame specialy):
Soul Shackles > Tormented Soil > Dark Bindning > Black Shield

Items:
I'm not going to explain every item seperately, I'll do it global.
With these items you gain a nice bunch of health, but also an immense amount of mana (wich gets converted into AP). I never have to recall due to low mana mid-and-end game. I only have to recall to refill my health (after a battle).
Beside some survival and laning capabillities, you also get a nice amount of AP.
Just a little note: I chose Lich Bane because of it's passive. Alot of times after I used al my skills (Tormented Soil, Dark Binding, (Soul Shackle), (Ignite) I end up doing some autoattacks to finish it off, and well, Lich Bane helps as they tend to escape sometimes due to cooldowns.

Overal I think this build offers some survival aswell as the power to harras.
If you got questions / comments, leave them below :)
