Golem.

He has one of the highest base damage in the game (doesn't need lizard) and has to run through the enemy team to grab high priority targets. Spirit of ancient golems is the way to go.


Current Build Golem>Tabi>Wits End>Iceborn.

Once the Quill coat hits it will be Golem>Mercs>Glacial>Wits End>Iceborn.

Lizard's better for a couple of reasons:
1. Like Animorphervl said, his low cooldown Q procs the elder lizard passive true damage burn to everything within the aoe.
2. Skarner is super mana hungry and does a lot of auto-attacking and Qs in the jungle (Lizard helps his mana bar stay full).
3. The cooldown reduction is great on skarner.

I could see ff being used, but you'd probably want to do the madstone route or steal blue buff from your mid laner since you'd be out of mana otherwise. I think Skarner's Q (Similar to hec Q) might apply the feral flare passive in aoe, but am not sure. If you could fix his mana problems, it could be viable.

Of the two you listed, definitely Spirit of the Lizard Elder. Feral Flame is more or less for junglers that rely mostly on autoattacks to deal damage, such as Tryn and Yi. Lizard Elder works better for Skarner in that he relies on mostly his Q to deal damage.

Between Elder Lizard and Ancient Golem, however, it depends on what your team composition and performance is like. For example, if you have a super squishy top and support (like Teemo and Sona) or they're pushing out, then going tanky with Ancient Golem is the way to go. If you have a super tanky top and support (like Darius and Alistar) or they're being pushed in, then going the damage route with Elder Lizard is the way to go.
