How to play

  1. You start with Guardian's Horn. Your #1 rush should be item that counters enemy team most (MR or Armor item). Get Jak'Sho as #2 item. Then adapt.
  2. You will be more tanky later on, so play more carefully in the early game.
  3. Triumph is better overall (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  4. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  5. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can heal and get some sustain with your Passive. Just use Dark Binding (Q) on super or siege minions. This also works with your Tormented Shadow (W)
Riot
  1. Shrewd use of Black Shield can determine the outcome of team fights.
  2. Items that provide survivability allow Morgana to become extremely difficult to kill in conjunction with Black Shield and Soul Shackles.
  3. Tormented Shadow is an excellent farming tool if you're by yourself in a lane.
