This build is not intended to replace and shouldn't be compared to real tanks like Alistar or Shen. But she can if she pleases or on situations where the team lacks a tank. However, you should be aware that Sona doesn't have the CC skills a real tank like Alistar have. This is why she should be carefully played, but not as much as an AP one though where you should always lane at the back to make sure you don't die and waste your Meja's Soul Stealer stack [if you build one]. This also makes her Hymn of Valor harder to use b'coz of its low range or risking your life by jumping to your deadzone.
