Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Flash
A must-have for every champion
Exhaust
Take this when your ADC has heal, also good against Assasins.
Heal
Take this when your ADC has barrier, which gives you more sustain in lane and during all-ins.
Ignite
Not really a good summoner spell since as Senna you play long-range and ignite has a pretty short range.

Jinx scales decently in-game, you can usually poke her but be careful when closing distance as her Zap!Zap! provides a nifty slow and her Flame Chompers!Flame Chompers! provides a good zone tool.
