Introduction

Sona is a very squishy champion, and because of that she's [most of the time] targeted 1st by enemy champions so she can't heal her allies or make any friggin' damage, makin' her useless in team fights. For this friggin' reason, I decided to build her as a tanky support mage, and I find it pleasing how I can turn team fights into our side by staying alive during clashes. Spamming Hymn of Valor and Aria of Perseverance is the way to go. Don't flame me. I know AP Sona is good, but it just doesn't suit my playstyle [got used to playing aggressive champions]. I played AP Sona back then and I was annoyed by the fact that I'm always gonna' be the one to die 1st.

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.
