Based on a personal experience : Nunu, Blitzcrank, Janna and Leona.

Leona and Blitzcrank for obvious reasons.

Nunu because he's a beast with a good ADC.

Janna because she's ungankable.

You cant play support under 1200 because you're not going to have a decent ADC.



Not true, I carried myself out of 600 elo with taric and am now at 1100 elo.
AND I strongly recommend Taric as support, he is perfect for every scenario; I have yet to find myself completely helpless when supporting with him.

Blitz, Alistar, Leona, Taric, Sona or Lulu would be my recommendations.

Blitzcrank if he isnt banned or leona by far best bets


Leona would be the second on my list following Taric.

Taric counters and synergizes with quite a few adc.
After him would be Nunu.
Sona also has a lot of good match ups, though she is very fragile now.

That's because his 3 counters are:
1) always banned (Alistar)
2) never played (Zyra)
3) never picked to counter Taric (Nunu)

Try to fight a Nunu that actually knows how to use him and what runes/masteries to use. He will hurt like a truck and you will be a sitting duck because of the MS. Or he can shut down your carry. Or he can make both of you explode even if you kill him.
