700 health is a lot.

Warmogs gives 1000 and some regen.

Regen doesn't mean TOO much in teamfights.

So my question:

Would Frozen Mallet be a better tank item than Warmogs? In what situations would I want a Frozen Mallet instead of a Warmogs?

I use Nunu, and Warmogs is usually my last or second last tank item, when I can't decide what to buy next (since health helps against both AD and AP).

That icy passive might help secure some late-game kills, since my snowball only hits 1 guy at a time.

No.

EDIT: Since this thread is about tank items, That 1% regen per second means a hell of a lot more than you think it does. Assuming you have 4k health (a reasonable mid-late game assumption if you have Warmog's) you regenerate 40 health a second just from the item passive alone, ignoring your base health regen, other items, etc.

And since you're tanking, that extra health gets multiplied by your resistances for even more effective health. It's just a better all around option for being extremely obnoxiously tanky.

It's better than warmogs, but expensive as heck. (particularly better on people who like AD, I wouldn't build it on Nunu)

Depends. Frozen Mallet is sure as hella useful if they have tons of divers for your team.

and it would have been fine if they let it build out of Phage. Is it really that big of a deal to have the passive change from rage to icy when you upgrade?

Although these days health stacking is too easily countered anyways, sooo.

The regen is definitely valuable in certain circumstances.

Regen is really effective for both laning and siege. Up against a poke comp? Tank can nom them up without losing any permanent HP.
