lose malphite for shaco, shaco has a better early game and then on top of that he gets 2x sunfire cape effect.

Tanks are strong currently, with penetration changes. 5 is overkill for serious play, but you can easily go with 2 or 3 IMO. Especially since dps champions without autoattack (e.g. panth) are increasingly common, making razors not as useful on them.

I'd lose Rammus for Nasus, and Malphite for Mordekaiser. I know, Mordekaiser's not a tank - but he's a great pusher, and so is Nasus. Your early-mid game will be much improved.

If I'm not mistaken, auras no longer stack on Shaco's double since the last patch. Yet I still see sunfire Shacos running around. Also, I see more using weapons with on-hit effects, because those still stack.

I'd swap out Malphite for Alistar. He's good DPS, but Alistar is such a strong pusher (plus his Q stun is almost as good as Malphite's ult) and such a fat HP sponge that he'll help you early game I think.

Stacking tanks can work surprisingly well, since tanks tend to blossom late-game. That being said, I think 5 is excessive: if you're going to have all those taunts, knock-ups, et cetera, why not have a squishier character that can do even more with 4 tanks protecting him?

I did a game as Poppy, with Morde, Shen, Nunu, and Mundo

All as tanks with GA rest sunfires. Morde Poppy and nunu all had good early game and we easily destroyed towers. We destroyed them :]

Morde - mid
Nunu & Shen - top
Poppy & Mundo - bot
