All trolling aside.

Anivia as a tank would get focused like hell, the very point of being a tank. Not only that, she would have her passive, which is the undisputed best passive in the game for a tank. +50 resistances and all your health back? Once you die, like a proper tank should, you would get EVEN MORE FOCUS as an egg. And you know what? Then you use your guardian angel. Then you have your Zil revive you.

Ok. you could do that, or you could let the shen tank and have aniva build AP so things die.

I think the main reason is Anivia is so **** mana hungry that if you don't build around that you'll be oom all game.

Tank morgana. She actually has tank abilities. Zoning. Shield. Snare. Slow/Stun Ult. And a passive that heals.

Anivia doesn't have tank abilities. Build her tanky, sure. But she can't tank.

Once won a game with AP WW and Tank Anivia.

The enemy actually said he couldn`t believe he was losing to a Tanky Anivia and AP WW.
Funny stuff.

WW healed too much, Anivia refused to die. <3

I know in a perfect game you'd always have blue, but sometimes their jungle steals it and whatnot, you can't solely rely on it.

Pretty sure egg gives you negative of whatever your armor and mres are, so even though it will take them longer to kill you the first time (while you do considerably less damage), they will shred you once you hit egg form.
