5v5 Team : Malphite, Annie, Xin Zhao (Core Team members) + Anivia and Twitch

Tank Malphite : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Malph...803ce320f01d0d
DPS/offtank Xin Zhao : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Xin+Z...5a7cef0957a614
AP Annie and Anivia : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Anivi...11948341ff66d2
DPS Twitch : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Twitc...7938a648493e2d

I'm pretty sure Annie and Anivia have similar/same item,rune, and masteries as AP casters, but if they don't.....whatever.

Get the items in whatever order you need and supplement each build depending on the enemy team's composition. (Obvious really...)
Strategy

Basically you have a jungling Xin, and Malph+Annie in one lane, Twitch Mid, Anivia Tower Hugging alone.

Xin, Malph and Annie can try for First Blood from bushes but you are gonna have to rush.
Annie will have to go Cone of Fire and get her stun ready if you want to attempt this. She has to stun, to give Xin time to knockup, and Malph is there to slow if and when they try to run.

Twitch and Anivia are the switchable members of this group, basically you need 1 person who can mid and another who can 2v1 effectively, Twitch provides great DPS late game, and Anivia has great burst and can hold her own 2v1. Wall + Stun near tower can get u a kill

In Team fights Xin has to intiate with his Ulti with Malphite right behind him. 400+25%HP+400 (Malphite) = 1000+ damage per person. Annie can bring in Tibbers after the 2 melees have blown their load. The enemy team shouldn't really have a chance to react and will end up losing atleast 1 teammate just on the intiation.

Neither Annie or Anivia should get Deathfire Grasp because it directly contradicts Xin's Crecent Sweep.

Early game domination in Annie and Malphite's lane is needed, bring in Xin if you must to make this happen.

Thoughts ? Changes ?

Sounds good in theory... at first. I should point out that Twitch is probably the weakest link in this setup, as he's not an optimal solo mid champion (and even less so 1v2). FB in the fashion you described is also unlikely if the enemy rightly exercises caution.

Well my FB means 3 people waiting at their bush 00:40 sec into the game, if they other team doesn't go into their bush then just lane, annie can burst people down with malphite at lvl 3+, provided they've harrassed.

Twitch has stealth and can hit 750 HP at lvl 1 if he picks a Doran's item. That should be enough to ensure his lane presence ?

If you think that isn't enough who would replace him with ?

Any good mid champ will dominate twitch, it doesnt matter if he has high hps because his damage output at low levels is ****. Annie can only burst through noobs who dont have hp quints and dorans. Your 3 man gank is fail and a will only delay the jungling on xin and the exp for the lane since you wont kill anyone, unless youre playing against lvl 20s.

Twitch with expunge can do some pretty decent damage early game, assume 100+ dmg per hit.

Auto Atk + Expunge + Poison
50 + 50 + 8

If you can get 1 more auto atk in you are good to go (Atk spd runes), as he levels expunge is gonna be maxed first so more damage, easily 150+ per auto atk for 90 mana, you dont even have to blow expunge, just keep auto atking if u want, they just have to realize that expunge is available to you and u can change the tides very quickly, get Heal as twitch and watch a chunk from him come to u, figuratively. Cast expunge once on them to give them idea if needed, just need to make ur presence known to give u the edge, its more of a mental game really...

I would swap Annie and Twitch. Twitch, Malphite together, with Xin popping in every once in awhile for the gank. This allows Xin or Twitch to be fed early, thus making them a huge threat mid-late game. With Annie at mid she will be higher level than all, but the opposing mid. Her stuns and nukes will open up pretty much 'on call' ganks to anyone on the team.
