Sion Support?

I was thinking of trying Sion as a support character bottom. Obviously it's a kill lane type support. I think it's doable.

He's got the stun.
He does massive damage without lots of gear.
Can tank turrets relatively early through sheer nastiness and W.
Ult heals everyone nearby.


Downsides-
Lacking early heal, later heal is situational
No buffs
Need to kill oppnents early to work effectively, hard vs Ez/ali combo (but what isn't?)

Building both Philo and HoG would be mandatory, as would Gp5 Quints and the support mastery. Any other thoughts?

Support Sion is like a bad version of support Taric.

He only has his stun and ult for utility, and without damage gear his ult won't heal for all that much for his team.

It feels bad ... Sion benefits so much from getting CS, and support is the role that doesn't get CS. It could conceivably work if the game ended so fast that it didn't matter.

Doable, and Lovable. I play Sion support. So don't be shy to play it, people think it's trolling, but it get's the wins. I usually support + Ap sion when I play bot support. Or bot tank, that works great too. Goodluck. May the Axe be with you.
