That doesn't make her a carry (assuming carry is defined as dealing "tons of damage"). Morganna's R is useful because of its ridiculous disruption. Furthermore, it has a long CD. The only real consistent damage skill Morganna has is her Q (her W is almost useless when in an actual team fight and not just harassing). So Morgana has one nuke/ridiculously long snare, farm/reduce MR ability, shield, and stunning ultimate. Morgana can still help the team if her damage as reduced. However, she can't help the team if her CC times were changed/reduced. Therefore, she is more of a AP/CC disruptor with the occasional single target burst (aka, an assassin) than a sustained carry.
Tldr: Morgana is useful because of her CC (which can screw entire teams over), not because of her damage.
But if you want to let your entire team win? Go starting item (dorans/boots/mana crystal+mana pots), then build rod of ages, Rabadons, Zhonyas (Flash into enemy team, Ulti, Zhonyas when they try to focus you, stun them all, you've just won the team fight. Note: you can activate Zhonya right after you hit R, because its not a channel spell and won't get interrupted), and then situational items (ex: magic penetration, banshee's veil, DFG, etc). Also, push mid (almost nobody can beat you in mid cuz of your sustain), and then go gank

The only advantage of Sapphire is if you need the 2 health pots. With her extreme range and built in vamp, I would think she wouldn't have as much need for them.
It does get your Catalyst earlier though.
If your jungle isn't going to/can't give you blue, then you may want to start with Sapphire Crystal+2 mana pots (note: yes you can get 2 mana pots, just stay at your base for 5 seconds after minions spawn) or 1 mana+1health pot. That usually leads to ridiculous amounts of sustain early and the ability to spam spells more. But, personally, I prefer a doran's ring.
