Buffs to Nasus's Q, W, R on the pbe. Why does Poppy, who is literally never played (ie LOWEST pick rate in the game, yes it is lower than karma's) and has a lower win rate than Nasus (keep in mind win rate doesn't mean much) not get anything?
example mana cost on her q or scaling mr

Poppy doesn't need buffs, she's a hit or miss.
If you fail early game you lose.
If you do good early game, you wreck their whole team no matter what.

Nasus still can fail even if he has a great early game.

1. It's the PBE, nothing is final. 2. Riot doesn't like doing a ton of things all at once.

Her Ultimate is one of the best spells in the game. That + Passive is scary if strong, she's UP to prevent her from becoming broken and OP. She could use some small buffs (like mana cost decreases)

She just needs a buff for jungling and she'll become fotm in no time.

Because Poppy has an ultimate that is literally uncounterable. If she gets enough gold to be able to one-shot your AD, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. She can do it every time without consequence.

Any buff that would help her laning would cause her to cease being a high risk high reward champion and instead she would become a moderate/low risk high reward. Anyone who has played against Poppy in ARAM knows the horrors. She becomes more unstoppable than a 6 item Jax, and with half the items.
