for sure wont work in ranked but normal games it should
reason:
she got too much CC , aoe stun , 2 AoE slows , Decent base dmg
get tear of the godess then build w.e u want , MAYBE GA?
also maybe late game get like AA and deathcap then u wont be ignored

CC does not scale with AP. Meaning tanking would be even MORE effective.

Sure, the skills are 1:1 if you hit right, but when I compare tanknivia vs ap anivia, the damage output doesn't seem abysmally lower. I feel even if you don't go with 2-3 tank equips on anivia, you should at least grab a warmongs somewhere in there.

anivia has moves that would work for a tank, her passive, 2 slows, a stun and a wall to separate enemies from allies

if you don't have blue buff all game you're doing it wrong

If she's building tank and doing no damage, why would she still have priority for blue buff?

1) I said get aggro, not take damage.
2) Anivia has two passives: 1) Rebirth. 2) Passive global taunt. I don't see how having TWICE THE HEALTH OF ANY OTHER CHAMPION IN THE GAME is not being 'able to survive'.
3) So does Amumu.

So basically, Tank Anivia works on the assumption that your opponents are awful, and won't realize that you have no damage potential, but still focus you anyway.
