have you seen soraka played lately? no it is because sona is easier to play and just as good if not plain better. Shouldnt soraka since she is harder to play have some kind of reward over easy sona play?
Leblanc is actually one of the worst assassin picks in the game after hotfix. I'd much rather have Akali, Kassadin, or Shaco on my team. Her only advantage over them is that she's scarier level 1-5 than Akali and Kassadin, but she doesn't snowball nearly as hard as they do. She can't jungle/gank like Shaco or Akali either.
MF is indeed easy to play and overpowered, but it's not like Ashe, Twitch, or Tristana are all that bad. Corki is arguably better than her now and he's very old.
Sona is better than Soraka, but it's not like Soraka was ever difficult to play.
