I've been playing as Amumu as an AP/Tank and I'll sometimes play him in Jungle. I was just playing in a bots game experimenting different items and here's what I finished with:
Athene's Unholy Grail
Banshee's Veil
Mercury Treads
Sunfire Cape
Abyssal Scepter
Ryali's Crystal Scepter

*Note: This is just what I was trying out. This is not what I'm calling my official build, so please no comments saying, "Your build sucks" but any advice would be appreciated.*

When I asked my teammates for their opinion on whether or not it looked good, one of them said to drop Sunfire Cape for something else like Guardian Angel.
I thought Sunfire Cape would be a good item to always have on Amumu seeing as how he gets close to enemies a lot and has lots of AoE abilities, but again, I'm just learning him so I don't know if it should be replaced.
Should I keep it or drop it late game?

I really just play for fun and I test characters a lot. I have been playing PvP more with champs I know well such as Annie, Orianna, and occasionally Ziggs, but I'm trying to learn how to play other things because I'm not always going to be able to AP mid. Amumu I'm practicing for AP/Tank and Jungle as I've already mentioned. Anyways, I really just want to know if I should keep Sunfire Cape or drop it towards end game in place of something else.

Too much ap. People will rage. Grab a Fon/ Randumin omen for Rylais or abysmal.

How do you mean people would rage? Like teammates would want me to be more tanky instead?

Ok, thanks! Is Athene's too much, though? I find it helpful at least as a late game item. I can pass up Rylai's, but I kinda like Abyssal Scpeter because it gives MR and AP and it's aura is really helpful, too.

believe it or not i think going full tank with the right items actually does more damage, but i like this build personally: philo,ROA,sunfire cap,either shurelias,banshees,FON,frozen heart, thornmail. the last items depend on enemy team, iv seen people 3v1 with this amumu build because sunfire plus thornmail is rediculus vs ads and FON,shurelias can completely zone just about any ap.

If you have that many more losses than wins in normals maybe you need to play more bots =/.
