Also, I find Leona/taric extremely strong against her which has been stated plenty of times. They have high damage potential and its get even worse when paired with a high damage early-game ADC like Draven, Graves, MF, trist

You can watch some of the Fnatic vs TPA matches from IPL5 to see some of tactics used to win against a Sona lane.

Also bring a pink ward and ruin sonas day, if she can't see into your bush she has a hard time harassing you without fear of death unless you lose your brush.

Actually, I've found that Sona lanes depend largely on the AD carry against her. The ADC needs to focus on last-hitting and being prepared to crush them when the time comes--possibly even attacking Sona rather than the enemy ADC. If your carry tries poking, though, you need to yell at them right away and tell them that it won't work, because it won't; Sona can outpoke you all day long. So when you hit that enemy pair, you need to hit hard.

Death stops her.

Or if you are playing her, just press S.

Leona, yes. Leona is kryptonite to Sona.

Taric, no. She can stay out of range of his stun, and if her AD gets stunned she switches auras to W and hits the enemy AD with -20% damage. Taric's AD won't be able to get a kill easily and Sona has a much stronger lategame.

Zyra does better than Taric, but isn't a hard counter. At worst, she restricts the area from which Sona can zone enemy AD. I don't fear Zyras as much as Leona.
