in which case, pick maokai, and ignore your idiot teammates that tell you maokai has to go bot

sure, maokais a great bot, but hes also an AMAZING teamfighter, one of the best, incredibly AoE nuking power, one of the best initiation moves, and a short cooldown aoe interrupt and a great aoe 20% damage reduction

you should ONLY bot as maokai if you dont have another champion that can hold bot, of if the enemy team has a really strong bot lane such as yorick that you NEED maokai bot for

I'm surprised no one said Rammus.

I wondered if he wanted to play something other than Rammus. Maybe a hero that isn't permabanned

Nobody that plays rammus well plays him as a tank anyways

He works much better if you build him tanky dps since he wins most 1 v 1's

build attack speed, roll up to someone pop your W and taunt other guy is forced to engage you for 3 seconds while you have +150 armor and MR and you get like 40AD with his W on, take like 5 seconds of tremor for 1000 damage, while eating like 4 autoattacks for 1000 you take almost no damage with DBC on

Try it pretty much anybody will be dead after the taunt duration ends

Rammus is a great tank against AD carry champs.
Galio is a great tank against AP carry champs.
Neither are that great against the other type.

Just keep that in mind.

I find any champ with damage mitigation works great. Alistar, Garen, Poppy just to name a few. Faced a whole team with damage mitigation and it was a nightmare to beat. Won only because they started to get cocky and separated from each other more at half way mark in game.

No mention of singed? WTF. Easily the most dominating tank in dominion.

Amumu is actually quite an awesome champ for dominion. I wrote a bit about him over at DominateDominion.com, where i linked builds and discussed effective life.

Alistar probably the best.
Malphite is great and can survive many annoying OP champions like Poppy and Jax.
Leona works too but you have to stick to a carry 90% of the game and you will both benefit.
