I've seen several excellent guides for individual heroes on here, but there seems to be a distinct lack of threads discussing team composition. Me and my friends have played several games and are running a very similar lineup each time, picking 5 of the below heroes without overstocking too excessively on one particular archetype of hero.

Tanks (usually 2+):
Nunu
Singed
Kayle

Disables/Casters (1-2):

Anivia
Kassadin
Ryze

Damage Dealers (whatever is left over):

Ashe
Sivir
Sion

Now, obviously this is by no means a perfect or complete list, but it's what we find works for us and plays into our skills. Having Nunu gives us a huge advantage in experience, as we get 2 solo lanes since the Nunu player is exceptional at jungling. For those curious, I am usually Singed or Sivir, although I'm trying to learn Ryze and Morgana, and sometimes sub in as Sion, usually when I'm not needed as anything else.

Now, obviously this isn't the winning combo, but it has proved effective for us. The tanks are all highly mobile and aggravating. Nunu due to his ultimate, Singed due to tossing and poison, and Kayle because of speed boosting allies and having a ridiculous nuke if an ally dies before her. Throw one or two of those into a fight with some good disables and one guy blowing stuff up and things get messy. However, I do see room for improvement. I'd say the "fantasy lineup" probably looks something like:

Singed/Nunu
Morganna/Ryze
Taric
Jax/Master Yi/Tryndamere
Sivir/Ashe

Now, I'm not claiming by any stretch of the imagination to be an expert. If someone comes in here and demolishes my team, well, fine by me, back to the drawing board. But, I would like to get some discussion started as to team matrixes and so on.

Tbh the "best" lineup in the current state of the game is Jax, Karthus (these two for sure), Taric (Mixed opinions but I feel that he's quite powerful), Alistar and Ashe.

I would probably remove Alister and Ashe from Yuralz and replace with, Singed//Nunu and Tristana, No one has talked about Tristana but she has, very good base health, can carry your entire team no problem, and also takes down towers in a matter of seconds, I find myself playing with Taric + Tristana combo, and we can easily clear 2 towers in a minute or less around lvl 10 to 12. She also has a good knockback very usefull in fights to kickback tanks.

I'm with Yuralz, except remove Alistar and put in a real tank like Singed/Nunu as Nerdz said. Other then that it's probably next to unbeatable if played right and with the right spells/runes.

I'm a fan of the aura lineup (it's pretty amusing)

Taric, Sivir, Judicator, Gangplank, Jax/Yi/Ashe/Tristana or a caster.
