The keystone to pick will be "Arcane Comet", with "Manaflow Band" in the first slots of runes, then "Transcendence", and finally "Scorch" for this first rune set.

The secondary set of runes for Morgana in the support role comes from the Inspiration Tree with "Perfect Timing" and "Biscuit Delivery". Inspiration "perfect timing" one grants you a "Stop Watch", perfect to save some money on "Zhonya's Hourglass", or to even use it in the early game with Morgana's "Soul Shackles", stunning chained targets and dealing some decent burst damage on nearby enemy champions.

Best Morgana Rune Shards

Morgana's best runes shards improve the dealt magic damage, of "Tormented Shadow", "Dark Binding", and "Soul Shackles". For Offense and Flex choose "Adaptive Force".

For Defense choose "Armor", which she needs to resist physical damage whenever she gets too close to getting an enemy hit by "Soul Shackles".

Best Morgana Spells

"Flash" and "Ignite" are the best summoner spells for her. Flash is one of the summoner spells everyone uses. It's great to get in or out of team fights, plus, Morgana support can use it to set up a huge crowd control with her "Soul Shackles".

Ignite

“Ignite” is one of the best summoner spells for Morgana as well because it allows more damage in the laning phase, besides the extra burst damage from her "Tormented Shadow".

Best Morgana Abilities Order

When managing league of legends champions like Morgana support you first want to max her "Tormented Shadow" in her skill order, then her "Dark Binding", and lastly her "Dark Shield", of course, level up her "Soul Shackles" every time it is available. 

The skill order combo with Morgana would be first "Tormented Shadow", followed up by "Dark Binding", if the enemy champions are giving too much trouble, you can go in with "Soul Shackles" to stun them, but make sure your lane partner will go in too since you'll be rather exposed.

A great point Morgana support has is that she can heal herself thanks to her "Soul Siphon" when she hits enemy champions, monsters, or large minions, with her abilities, which is why sometimes Morgana is played in the jungle, since she can heal with her skill order "Dark Binding" and "Tormented Shadow" thanks to "Soul Siphon".

Best Morgana Items

The best items for Morgana support focus on improving her magic damage thanks to items like "Liandry's Anguish" which is the successor of "Liandry's Torment", the "Shard of True Ice", and "Rylai's Crystal Scepter".

Best Starter Morgana Items

For Morgana players the best starting items in this League of Legends patch 12.14 consist of the "Spellthief's Edge", two "Health Potions", and of course, a "Stealth Ward".

Best Mid Game Morgana Items 

"Shard of True Ice", "Ionian Boots of Lucidity", and "Zhonya's Hourglass" are the items you should have by mid game, the "Shard of True Ice" coming from the previous starting items of the early game "Zhonya's" will save you from any killing blow and the "Ionian Boots of Lucidity" will grant you some nice ability haste to cast your "Black Shield" to provide magic resistor "Dark Binding" and activate "Soul Siphon" to heal you a bit as it deals damage.

Against other champions, you can replace "Ionian Boots of Lucidity" for the "Sorcerer's Shoes" to penetrate the magic resist armor of an enemy, but this would be only situational sin the ability haste "Ionian Boots of Lucidity" grants is quite useful for Morgana to use her magic resist "Black Shield" or her "Soul Shackles" to apply more crowd control.

Best Final Late Game Morgana Items 

The successor of "Liandry's Torment", "Rylai's Crystal Scepter", and "Morellonomicon" are the final items of this build in this patch 12.14. The descendant of "Liandry's Torment" and "Rylai's Crystal Scepter" are the protagonists here. "Liandry's Anguish" is the mythic item to choose from the different mythic items available, it provides more damage to her abilities while she heals with "Soul Siphon".

"Rylai's Crystal Scepter" provides extra crowd control when getting officially involved in team fights which helps with any unique takedown. On the other hand "Morellonomicon" causes grievous wounds to the enemy, which goes excellent with ex-"Liandry's Torment".

Best Champions to pair Morgana with

Veigar and Morgana have a high win rate because they can easily get the first enemy kill if they work together towards that goal, eventually, during a game, they can be rather annoying due to the high CC their synergy offer.

CHAMPIONWIN RATE %ICON
Veigar54.6%
Sivir53.5%
Miss Fortune52.4%

Sivir and Miss Fortune also benefit from the CC Morgana can achieve, being able to set beautifully the enemy duo in the enemy lane to get crushed by their ultimates, and if necessary, use her "Black Shield" ability on whoever needs it the most during the game.

Strongest Champions against Morgana

Taric, Vel'Koz, and Janna can be truly annoying to play against as Morgana, Taric can literally counter Morgana's Ultimate, while Vel'Koz and Janna can displace, and protect their allies from her, hence their win rate against Morgana.

CHAMPIONWIN RATE %ICON
Taric45.8%
Vel’Koz46.0%
Janna46.9%

Weakest Champions against Morgana

Morgana excels against tank characters, and right now the win rate she has when facing Alistar, Leona, and Thresh is rather high. This is because Morgana can weaken them from a safe distance, and protect the ADC from any magic damage such as Leona's thanks to her "Black Shield".

CHAMPIONWIN RATE %ICON
Alistar54.6%
Leona54.3%
Thresh53.8%

Morgana is hands down one of the best supports in the game due to how simple, yet powerful and useful she actually is. She's one of those characters anyone who's learning the support role should try out first while they get the hang of what a good support should play like. Lastly, Morgana is also known for how flexible she is when it comes to played in other lanes, or even the jungle.
