Threats & Synergies
You Win So Hard.
You win unless he can all in you.
Bit harder to survive, but definitely winnable.
You outpoke and outsustain. Just dont get hooked.
Once that hook misses, you have free rain more or less.
Pretty even. You both do the same thing.
The only way you can win is if you poke her out early (level 1) and maintain dominance. Otherwise, good luck.
You barely outpoke, but she's pretty safe against you regardless.
When to pick
Start spellthiefs with pots and/or wards. Trinket is up to you, usually the totem but you can choose the lens if you're feeling lane dominant/ambitious.
If you have enough gold for the sightstone, get it over the frostfang. If you have enough for both, then get both. Once you have the sightstone, swap out your totem (if you have it) for a lens. If you do not end up purchasing the sightstone, grab some wards. Buy pots if needed. Buy pink ward if you want more dominant vision/dragon control.
Grail is a reliable mana item for lane, or get the idol if you cannot afford the grail. Get boots at some point as well. Glacial shroud is a situational over idol/grail. More pinks are always good.
Usually take ionian boots over mobi if you have 5% more cdr in your runes/masteries.
All items very upon situation but can still be very strong on Sona.
