Definitely Sona.

I love watching my death recap when I die bottom lane and notice Sona did more damage to me than the enemy carry

I don't like her at all, mainly because she takes almost no skill to play and I find it extremely difficult to judge a person's skill after using her, if they played well or not (I will go in detail with this momentarily).

My choice is still Taric. If I use him and lane with a carry played by someone that isn't ******ed, it is almost guaranteed them getting fed, almost no matter who we are against. He does not have an AoE stun, but he does have a single target (almost) spammable ranged stun where it is most useful during the portion of the game that most of the time determines the outcome. He never has to heal himself, just heal allies and he has equal sustain throughout all portions of the game. His ult can be used much more often than hers (though is is not nearly half as game-changing) and it grants allies quite a lot of damage. After ult, he and his allies all of a sudden do nearly twice as much damage (especially AD carries after his W).

Alistar is probably my second choice: absolutely amazing CC and spammable AoE heal that causes him no mana issues. He is also one of the very very few champions that needs no items to be almost invincible.

Now to Sona's lack of skill to use... I have argued this with myself, just so I wouldn't hate her as much. Knowing when to have which aura up at the right times could (as slight as the difference is) mean life or death for her or an ally. Her ult is also not the easiest to land, that is if you are trying to get the whole enemy team. In all my time playing, I have only been hit by her ult maybe 6 times, at most. It isn't very large and I find it pretty easy to dodge as long as you and your allies have good positioning. So, I suppose a part of that takes skill.

EDIT: Sona free week. ****. Noobs are going to think they are pro.

lol @ Sona takes no skill. Knowing when to use her Power Chord and which one can turn the tides of duels bot and in team fights, especially when you have a lot of CDR and are spamming - knowing when you should use it to get the right effect can be difficult.

That said, Sona and Soraka hands-down are the most powerful supports. That's why they're getting nerfed in the Nautilus patch. Aside from the obvious picks, I'd say Ali is a strong support with all his CC.
