I have been trying to play Ryze as a tanky caster that supports others to get kills. The idea is to stack a lot of MP and defenses, then help out in team fights. Q will still deal a good amount of damage, secure kills with W and increase the damage of casters with E. Would this work?

I know that Tear, Boots, Banshee's Veil and Frozen Heart are essential, but what do I get after that? There aren't more mana items that are good defensively.

Deathcap. You already have an item that has the highest Mana and the highest Mana Regen, Since your Mana is maximized to the full potential for the most part, focus on the AP portion now. If you still want to keep the tanky caster theme, then go Zhonya's/Abyssal.

Rod of Ages, it give the highest mana (below Tear/AA) even without any stack on it, and the HP will be useful.

Let's say you do a usual QWQEQ casting sequence:

You will scales at the rate of
35% max mana(10% from Q and 5% from W)
1.55 AP(.2 from Q, .6 W, and .35 E, assuming you don't bounce it further)

0 stack RoA(525 mana, 60 AP) gives you = 173.75 + 93 = 266.75 more damage

Deathcap will adds about 200 AP without any other AP items, that's about 310 more damage

Abyssal is also an option, since by now your Q should be hitting in the 400-500 range easily the extra MR reduction could be worth quite a lot of AP equivalent.

I don't really want to build anything that doesn't give too much survivability just for more burst, because I don't really mean for Ryze to get kills. Since Ryze has low base HP, would a Warmog be worth it?

take the advice of the post above you and build RoA's, gives hp, mana, and decent AP on top of all the defenses you already have, making you super tanky and hard to kill while still having amazing burst.
