Enchantress Morgana Support 12.3
Best Overall Runes
Best Overall Build
Hey guys <3
My name is IInvidia on league and I have been playing league since season 5! (on that account since season 6) I play on the North American servers, I'm Plat 1 currently and have been as high as Diamond 4. I've been a support main since I have started and Morgana has always bene a champion within my pool.
So why morgana:
Morgana has always felt like a pretty safe pick that can make plays, do damage, and protect your carries, all things I love to do. However, Morgana never felt like the best option in most matchups to me and usually fell into a counter pick for Thresh picks. With this newer build, Morgana has been my safe pick for any situation and has become my consistent blind pick. Enchantress Morgana allows for scaling and full use of her kit outside of just her lockdown abilities. This way you can play to her strengths while minimizing her weaknesses.
- Hard CC that creates large pick potential.
- New Group
-Her Blackshield(e) that is a huge part of why she is strong and able to counter many champions
- High Damage output that makes her a solid carry support if needed
- Easy Spellthiefs procs with her tormented Shadow (w).
- Strong Teamfights with her ultimate.
- Long CDs early
- Feels like her popular builds fall off when focusing damage
- Relies on Zhonyas in many matchups
- Very Reliant on hitting her Dark Binding (q).
- Can be a situational pick with most of her builds
Listen to the Theme as you go <3
Most Runes I've seen recently for Morgana revolve around glacial augment, and although I feel like she can use glacial augment well, it runs into the issue of adding more reliance on her Q and R. The runes I've picked out below are to help strengthen in her across her kit and make her more well rounded.
Aery: Allows for poke that most morganas use arcane comet for, however for enchantress morgana we use this rune to also empower her Blackshield. Because her E only blocks magic damage, the usage of aery fully utilizes her enchantress capabilities by giving a small shield that blocks any damage on top of it. I find Aery way more consistent at this than guardian as many people can clear guardian at inopportune moments.
Manaflow Band: A typical morgana rune when running the sorcery tree, very strong at helping her keep up her mana early as you tend to run low. I love how easy it is to proc with her W, and it helps you maintain mana as you poke for spellthiefs procs.
Transcendence: Morgana's weakness lies in her cooldowns, this rune allows to reduce her cd's as much as possible so that she can keep up with other enchantresses.
Scorch: Helps with early poke and picks. I would run this over gathering storm as you want her lane to still be as strong as possible.
Biscuit Delivery: Now this rune is the most flexible in this build and will truly land on what you prefer. I like Biscuit Delivery for its value to helping keep your mana high as you constantly poke and it allows me to get an early spellthiefs. Runes I would consider to rotate with this based on the occasion would be Future's Market, Magical Footwear, and Perfect Timing.
Cosmic Insight: This rune is vital as it gives you cds on your items and summoner spells allowing even higher utility. From faster flashes to more frequent zhonyas, Morgana having lower cds all around help her become a safer pick overall.

Summoner Spells (Loadout)
Most times I would recommend exhaust as your summoner spell as the slow utility and decreased damage allows you to gap close and stay there without having to rely on Zhonyas constantly. Exhaust also allows you to hit more Q's with a slower target.
There are times when you go against an enchantress who relies on healing overall (Sona,Yuumi,Soraka), and you will need to pick ignite to reduce their effectiveness. Most times I find solo laners love taking ignite so exhaust is my go to.
During this patch I have also noticed many adcs do not want to take heal, so if your adc takes exh/ign as well as solo laners also taking exh or ign, you may take heal just for diversity and for safety in some lanes.
- Summs (Role 1)
Your ability path should only vary within levels 1-3 depending on the matchup. You will almost always take Q first, unless your team is inting to an invade and you NEED your E to save an ally from an early death.
Levels 2-3 will vary the most as you want W level early to start getting Manaflow stacks and spellthiefs gold, however some champions pressure too hard at level 2 such as Leona, Pyke, and Blitz. Because of this, you need to take Blackshield and play safe until level 3.
- Engage Opponent
The beauty of Enchantress Morgana build is the versatility it provides. There will be some games where you NEED damage beyond an imperial mandate, so you can build demonic embrace or mandate to help push some of your already consistent damage.
Most Times I try and build the final build below as it creates the best utility, switching between putrifier, redemption, zhonyas, and wardstone depending on the needs.
- Battlesong: Movement utility, especially when using Blackshield, the characters you shield are in a bind and the extra movement allows you to get them out more reliably. The active also helps so much with much repositioning in a way to get off more consistent ultimates.
-Mandate: Good option if you need slightly more ap or burst when locking down a target. This is a less frequent mythic but a reliable option if you like a more damage support.
-Zhonya's: A critical item for Morgana, however with the enchantress build you rely on it less. Although most times it is a safe bet and a good buy, sometimes there are better options for utility as you aren't the target. If you are reliably getting your ults off or being targeted, buy other utility to help your team rather than yourself.
-Putrifier/Morello: Good anti heal, putrifier if you want to empower your team and don't need damage, where as morello is good for damage and personal anti heal.
-Redemption: Increases your Blackshield strength and gives you a good heal for your team.
-Demonic Embrace: Good ap as well as a burn for tanks. Typically only build with ap required builds.
-Wardstone: Great base stats and allows for more wards, which I love on many supports.

Matchups and Synergies
These 4 adc's are my favorite to play Morgana with as each help synergize very well with Morgana's kit. For Jhin, Caitlyn, and Varus, the lockdown combo and poke is huge and you can blly your opponents into submission. Sivir is a very safe lane where both you and her can self spellshield to ensure engage lanes like Leona, Blitzcrank, and Thresh become totally useless in lane.

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you try this less common Morgana strategy :)
