Mana costs are high. It's the only reason he's not OP as a support.

Definitely viable. Idk about good. The thing is, you gotta max Q and not rely on your E for damage. I go Relic Shield on him and do pretty well.

I start with his e, poke, and then all in with his w at level 2.

Rarely does this not secure a kill.

He is amazing as support as long as you rush frozen heart and buy some blue pots to start.

Fun fact, Maokai was actually designed to be a support, but people jungled with him because of his great clear speeds at the time. Just look at his kit. It screams support.

I think people are undervaluing just how amazing his e is at low levels. It's the skill I max first.

When I support it is only Maokai. I know it was a loss but the other day I carried a 4v5 to the point where our Jax started attacking their Nexus just as our last tower near our Nexus fell.

Unfortunately there were five of them there and only one Jax.

I highly suggest you try it and let your ADC know you're going to be super aggressive right off the get go.

I really like Maokai as support. His mana costs are pretty high, so mana regen masteries + new biscuit master + rushing a glacial shroud after Targon's and sightstone is pretty good so far. His level two combo is pretty much as good as Leona's, and his kit works really well as a support.
