In all realities building Shen as a pure tank is sort of dumb. Here's why

After using his taunt, Shen has NO CC. That means you have 3-5 seconds where you can't do anything but take turret damage, and use vorpal blade to give allies health regen.

Not building some sort of attack speed, to make full use of his passive Ki Strike (which decreases in cool down while feint holds) means that Shen is doing nothing but being ignored. Enemies will not target you, since you have so much health.

Shen is a ninja, which means that he shouldn't be played as a bruiser, but rather an off-tank. Building Zeke's herald is essential to making full use of his passive and support abilities.

"Lets talk about high-elo play for a bit,"
1 You are not at high elo play so you can't really say things like that. Watch all the high elo and get all advice you want from high elo players; you are not a high elo player and are not qualified to be making statments like this one.
2 Ever watched the pros? I've never seen shen without wits end, and phage. I HAVE seen trinity force shen but that was very situational in the match up as that particular team needed more dmg.
