After that I'd probably just get a tri force or an aura item. Good build? My runes are full tank with hp/level yellows and MS quints. 1/21/8 masteries.
Blitz can be built in a number of ways, but Manamune/FH/Trinity/Odyn's/Atma's is the most common build I see, though you have to pick and choose which items to get as you won't have all of them. LW isn't a bad choice either if you go for Manamune and Trinity. I also see Shurelya's Reverie on him occasionally.

Boots, FH, and Sunfire Cape, with a Negatron thrown in for heavy AP teams, but upon reading your item comments, I want to diversify my options. Against a heavy AD autoattacking team, would it be better then to delay finishing an FH to grab a Warden's? How else could I build him?
Also, as you noticed during the last tournament, I've never run him bot, but I do recall him being a decent swap once he's built some items. In the unfortunate case he has to defend bot from the beginning, what would you do?
Flat MPen is an extremely good buy on Amumu because of his passive, so don't be afraid to dip into Haunting Guise as well. I would personally trade in the Sunfire Cape for a Rylai's so that his toggle slows and does more damage, but an RoA could also be nice because of the early Catalyst.
Amumu bot lane doesn't really have much of a way to succeed in bot lane against a tankyderp like Jax, but he can slow the push quite a bit with Tabi and Glacial. Once you have Glacial, you'll want to upgrade to FH over getting a Warden's due to FH applying to total AS and not additive like Warden's proc does. After that, you'll want the proper MPen for their MR and then after that you'll want a Thornmail.
Against casters, Amumu will focus on Abyssal before Guise and get an Odyn's as well. You still want to stack flat MPen over Void.
