Threats & Synergies
The point of this build is to mitigate the threat that hook champs have for Sona by stopping an early game snowball. You still have to pay attention and respect these champs, but that doesn't mean you automatically lose. Use E to bait out their hook and you win the trade and can even engage before it comes back up.
Zyra can zone you and your adc away from exp and gold. Her plants don't die in one hit and they deal respectable amounts of damage when ignored. Pay attention.
By getting e second, you can dodge q easily. By using taste of blood, you heal back a portion of the e damage, and by taking lich bane you kill her quickly. Still gotta dodge her stuff though.
Yuumi can't sit on someone who's dead.
It's Brand. He kills you quick and not much you can do about it as he has more range.
Point and click cc. Can you keep distance, no, can you stun him, no, can you avoid his cc, no. Just 200 years at work.
Great for the engage when you get one as he has his own shield so you can focus on damage and confirming kills.
Having an adc with engage is great, especially if they can take the heat off of you and be annoying while you do the same.
Any tank adc is amazing for this as you are the damage and they are the meat shield. Rare but very fun to play with as you're almost guaranteed to stomp lane.
You set them up, he knocks 'em down. One q aa from you will put the enemy unlucky enough to fight you at the rip point of Jhin killing them. You also give him a decent bit of survivability with speed and healing while giving him a decent boost to damage.
Double AP bot lane is bad. Corki is too mobile to make use of your kit. Relies upon ally to go in with him. Will basically int.
Not the best, not the worst, solid meh. Your Q adds to her headshot so that's a plus. You can work with her to poke the enemy down, but you need someone to engage. It's like two bottoms trying to go on a date, great chemistry, but neither wants to start it.
Surprisingly strong. Due to the zone control he has, you can have a lot of places to walk. He has a decent engage and strong burst. Main downside is that he can't fulfill all these at once so you need to decide what the best course of action is. There is also the fact that its a double AP bot but the combo is worth it.
