The stun will probably hit if you get an ult off on a champion so you have more orbs. With luck, you can follow up with a Q after before they just move out of the way.
Most of the time, you will Q, they will dodge it. You will move for another Q, and then they'd burst you down.
Syndra even loses to melee AP champions like Eve and Kat, simply because they outburst her, and she gets crushed by ranged AP champions like Anivia and Orianna because they have much better farming/zoning skills than Syndra.
Landing Q isn't that bad. The fact that you can move while casting all of her spells allows her to cast Q even while fleeing, or while chasing. Although its usually used for the former.
And I absolutely agree with that range. I propose her Transcendant passive upgrades Unleashed Power at Rank 3, increasing its range. It is needed to burst down weaker targets, since it is wasted against tanks.
On the topic of her Passive, why not give it an additional effect? Why not passively increase her AP by a little based off how low/high her mana is. Or something.
And her Ultimate... its very boring. Its a single target damage spell, and nothing feels worse than setting it up (Which is very hard to do) ulting, and letting them escape with 25 Hp left. Its just awful. Why not add another effect to it, a slow, an armor decrease, or a stun?
