Recently I've been playing Shyvana a lot, and to buff up my early game a bit significantly, after buying wriggles and HoG, I buy a doran's shield as a placeholder and build into Aegis directly after. From there, I'll usually build Phage or in rare cases a Giant's Belt. Viability?

Seems to me...

Doran items are useful early game. By the time you've built Wriggles you should know which of the three Shield stats you need most, and could buy an item that gives a bigger boost to that stat while building towards something that is useful late game.

Are you jungling or laning?
