Black Shield - 5 seconds of cc immunity on a 15s CD at max level... that can be cast on any teammate? This ability is just too good and enables so much. Sure, someone could break the shield, but a shield that has 355 + 0.7AP health and only absorbs magic damage isn't all that easy to break.
Crystallize - One of the few CCs that can't be prevented by ANYTHING is terraforming. While not a "direct" CC, Anivia's wall is gamebreaking when used correctly.
Rocket Grab - There are lots of counterplay options to this, such as banshee's veil, spell shields, and simply dodging the skillshot... but if Blitzcrank lands one grab at the correct time, then he can turn a losing grame around with this one ability alone.
Sona's abilities - I'm going to put her songs here collectively. Her Q gives 4/8/12/16/20 AD and AP. Her W gives 8/11/14/17/20 Armor and MR. Her E gives 8/11/14/17/20 Movement Speed. People think Sona is all about the early game, but Sona is probably the most ridiculous late game support, when she has her Q and W maxed, because of these auras alone. The active components are just icing.
Bio-Arcane Barrage - While 210 range isn't nearly as much as Kayle's E's, 210 range on a 500 range champion is more powerful than 400 range on a 125 range champion. The fact that this makes his damage mixed damage, with the magic portion scaling off % HP, only makes this ability that much more powerful.

Blitz grab is #1 non ult. ...Possibly #1 skill in whole game. ...Have fun spending the next forty minutes standing as far away from the FOW as possible.

Blitz grab is one of the most easily avoided spells in the game.

It doesn't matter whether or not you can avoid most Blitz grabs; if he lands one at the right time, then your team is ****ed. Pros ban blitz in the world championships; I think they're better than 99.9% of the LoL community.

So why do my teammates always (and only) get hit by it late game causing us to lose?

Would Olaf "E" qualify?

His "Q" is ridiculous enough for me, splash/slow, and refreshes when grabbed

Skarner's Q is one of the best *balanced* Qs in the game.

Jarvan's E (Demacian Standard) has the most utility in a single spell

Did you know...you could even teleport to it?

It also makes it easier for your team to take down baron and dragon since it boosts their AS and gives Ezreal more stacks on his passive.


Shoot it into brush to see if there are enemies inside, and count how many.

All that utility.

No one would offer up Soraka's Silence? Unlimited mana for your carry, Spell control against the enemy and free poke?
