Summoner Spells Back to Top

I suggest only these two spell combinations. Any other combination is just inefficient and would probably decrease your chance to win.


4.png4.png is a MUST! This summoner spell is superior to any other. You can initiate fights with it, escape, save your teammates, and kill steal!... I mean... kill secure.

3.png3.png is Sona's best friend. Picking this summoner spell guarantees protection for your "Marksman" against assassins and high damage output champions. Sona also has a built in, but weaker 3.png with her W. You should always use 3.png and your W together to completely destroy the enemies' carry damage output. 

14.png: If you choose to pick 14.png over 3.png then it means your enemy bot lane is squishy, has no sustain, and you can poke them to death. It's always a good idea to pick 14.png against certain kind of champions like 16_64.png36_64.png9_64.png

Masteries Back to Top

Only pick "Thunderlord's Decree" if you're running 14.png and you want to be aggressive in lane. Pick "Windspeaker's Blessing" when you're running 3.png and you focus on keeping your marksman, and later your team, alive. For example: If the enemy team has an assassin like 107.png238.png254.png, and so on. You get the point. ;)

I'm sorry here, but I couldn't figure out how to change the ability order. Anyways, ideally after you hit level 6 you either want to level up Q or W first to maximum. It still all depends on what the enemy team is and how your team is doing. If the enemy team is doing well, has assassins, your team and marksman need better sustain you max sonaariaofperseverance.png. If you're doing good, and your team, then max sonahymnofvalor.png first. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Literally the one and only good start for Sona.
    If possible on first back.

Core Items

    If you are forced to go tanky and protect your team. Also, if your team has enough damage already.
    If your team. and your lane, does well and you're confident enough to go AP.

Situational Items

    It's a great item if your marksman can make a use of it and not proc it randomly before teamfights.
    Only if you have at least 3 teammates who can make a use of it.

VS

Alistar

Easy

Laning against 12_64.png is all about reading his movements. You will most likely be under his turret all the time because of your pokes and his uselessness pre 6. So prepare to be ganked by their jungler non-stop. Ward up, read Alistar's change of play style and play relatively safe. 


Despite the fact you have an easy laning he's a strong tank late game with 2 great CCs.

VS

Annie

Medium

It's either she pokes you to death or you poke her to death. She has better pre 6 and pro 6 fights with his ADC then you do because of her ult and high burst. Despite these facts you can always predict her all in desire and exhaust + W her face before she does her combo and she will do less damage than a 16_64.png.

VS

Bard

Easy
432_64.png = 3512_32.png. ( useless )

Ward up, because your laning will be all about standing in front of their turret and poking him and his adc to death. 

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard
53_64.png is considered to be the biggest counter to 37_64.png. If you don't read his movements you most likely die lvl 2 or have your 4.png burnt and die later. Ward your side bush and stay behind minions. When he fails his Q go and poke them for free gold with your 3303_32.png.

VS

Braum

Medium

Laning against 201_64.png can be hard and easy. If you avoid his Q and his passive you're fine. Otherwise you will melt.

VS

Janna

Easy
40_64.png lives to protect her "Marksman". She won't do damage to you, but her partner will with her E. Bait her shield herself or her partner and poke the opposite person who hasn't got it. ( grammar op )

VS

Karma

Hard

She has better poke than you, but you have better pro 6 and team fights. Try to survive in lane and not get too low for an all in. You will need your jungler to help you.

VS

Leona

Medium

Once again, read her movements. If she Ws and start running at you, just walk away from her E. She and her "Marksman" will try to all in you lvl 2. So rush lvl 2 before them and play really safe. Once her combo fails, go and poke her for being bad.

VS

Lulu

Hard

She has pokes, polymorph, slows, and an ult which gives HP and knocks up. A good Lulu will over-damage you. 


Probably one of the hardest match-ups you can face. Poke only if it's safe, wait for help to kill them. 

VS

Morgana

Medium
25_64.png zones really nicely with her W, but it ruins her "Marksman's" CSing. Avoid her Q and make sure to not ult when her spellshield is up. 

VS

Nami

Medium

Playing against 267_64.pngcan be hard and easy depending on the synergy between her and her "marksman". If they have no synergy it's an easy game.


Dodge her Qs otherwise they'll hurt you. 

VS

Nautilus

Medium
111_64.png is an easy matchup pre 6, but after it he can just ult you and destroy you with his "marksman". Poke him to death and get fed before 6. Always hide behind minions to dodge his Q.

VS

Nunu

Easy

Most of the time easy, but rarely if the enemy junglers is good, he will take an advantage of the Nunu's slow and kill you.

VS

Soraka

Hard

If you don't have synergy with your "Marksman" then you will have no kills against her. You and your partner needs to poke her in lane so she can't heal her "Marksman". Even then, it's hard to get a kill with a bad "Marksman". 


Avoid her Qs after you and your "marksmnan" poke her to low HP. If your lane partner doesn't mind getting hit by 16.png's tell him you will go top and heal 150.png instead of her/him. 

VS

Taric

Easy
44_64.png gems! I don't consider him a threat. Have fun!

VS

Thresh

Medium
412_64.png's Q is slower than 53_64.png's. You should have an easier time to dodge it and win the lane. Be careful of his E passive though. It hurts.

VS

Zilean

Easy

You poke harder than 26_64.png the whole game. He's useless pre 6 and the only thing that makes him "useful" is his ult. Even that is situational.

Who you want beside you? Back to Top

In theory every marksmen work with you, but these are the top 5 you want to lane with:


429.png-37.png: Her kalistaW.png's passive has such a great synergy with you. It's almost a 100% guaranteed lane win if you guys proc it. Her kalistaR.png can save you from being caught and to use it as a 4.png instead of burning it and make a good ult on the enemy team, or just initiate. 

236.png-37.png: You two are both all about initiating. Not really much to say here. You guys are strong together. 

81.png-37.png81.png can prob your Q's passive with his Q. You two are great at zoning, and poking. 

67.png-37.png: Vayne might not be the strongest early game markswoman, but she's insane in the late game. I like to take 3.png and Windspeaker mastery with her. If she gets peel, you get the win. ;)

202.png-37.png: The almost guaranteed Jhin stun ( jhinW.png ) with your sonasongofdiscord.png proc, or just simply press sonahymnofvalor.png and he can proc it. You can also sonacrescendo.png the enemy support and marksman and have Jhin take the kill with his jhinR.png. Such a nice combo. He'll need protection the whole game. Take 3.png and Windspeaker mastery.
