Introduction to Soraka top
Soraka top is the harass master. The closest champion I can think of for early game play is Teemo, you harass your opponent with auto-attacks or Q (be carefull of mana) as often as possible while still farming every minion possible. The advantage Soraka has is her Q is a high damage, low cost ,area of effect, healing skill shot and her auto-attack range is longer.
Auto attacks are KEY!
Hitting Q is core to the sustain and damage of this build. With the new Summon Aery,scorch and cheap shot runes this ability has much synergy, trades will be very good in lane with Q poke and auto attacks following. After much harassment your opponent will likely think "I'm not taking this from a Soraka" and try to close a gap on you to fight, this is where they go wrong. When your opponent comes for you their movement becomes predictable so all you have to do is remain calm and kite them with Q and auto-attacks, they will be slowed by Q and you will be sped up and healed by its passive effect (rejuvenation). If done correctly you will out trade your opponent easily. It is important to note this may not always work and they may close the gap, especially against high mobility champs, this is not the end!
Soraka has another ability which gives her the perfect tool to deal with this; her E. This ability is a AOE silence that deals surprising damage given the points you get in it early, what most top only mains don't realize is the second proc after 1.5 seconds will apply the damage again and root them if they stay in the field.It is crucial to utilize this ability for ganks to stop mobility and flash, or when dived on to root the opponent under tower.
Important note: E can be cast to stop your enemy laner using teleport, if you see them teleporting just cast it on them and it will cancel it.
Lastly we have Soraka's ult, this is global power spike for your team as you will be able to give a bot lane jungle gank great security if played well, or a gank in any lane for that matter(including yours!)..
