In between games yesterday, the analysts were talking about how strong Zed would be in the Worlds and were discussing means of countering him. Krepo dropped a comment about Soraka, since she is almost a perfect counter to his burst. Armor buff and a heal through Astral Blessing
, along with a silence, would in my opinion be enough to make a carry survive Zed's burst. To add to that, with the tri-force Corki dominating yesterday, who has ridiculous amounts of early game magic damage, the MR through her passive Consecration
could play a big role in bottom lane fights. I was wondering if these two factors would make up for her lack of CC and make her viable?
TL;DR Are Soraka's armor and MR buffs strong enough to counter Zed and Corki, the current dominators of the meta?
