As Nunu I can do golem at level 1 without any items. Amplifying tome builds into nothing useful for a good tanking/jungling Nunu. Also, as I mentioned you don't need golem at level one with Nunu. Visionary takes care of your mana problems and consume cd is already low enough.

Boots help an insane amount with ganks, with lizard and iceblast noone will get away from you without the use of flash. Starting boots are essential to a good early game on this Nunu.

Sounds even cooler.

I personally think Nunu would be best built with a group of 3 physical ranged carries, and Janna(preferred) or Shen

Lots of carries to bloodboil, Janna(or shen) to help protect them, Janna and nunu can both ult and soak up CC with their ults, along with keep the enemies off the ranged carries.

Yeah, I think a team comp like Twitch/Ashe/Ezreal/Janna/Nunu would be extremely viable. Janna could go more ap and between her and Nunu the opposing team would still have to worry about magic resistance. Both could protect the carries and if the enemy team rushed in you have two ults to break them up with. With cc magnets like Janna and Nunu there and the kitability Nunu's and Janna's slows provide it would be an amazingly annoying comp to go against. Not to mention Ashe's ult and volley slow.

The two things I think are missing from this guide are a sheen and CDR other than runes (unless you plan to keep the blue buff all game). An early sheen really makes ganking easy and late game it is constantly proccing as you toss snowballs everywhere.

Rush Banshee, Bloodboil, slow, ulti profit.

And extremely inefective... You have absolutetly no way to protect your carries NONE. Your team doesn't have a tank at all

Uh. Janna and Nunu are protecting. And Nunu not a tank? Intriguing hypothesis.
