Gangplank and Pantheon are both very strong champions on the Twisted Treeline. Pantheon has great damage and a solid stun / jump, as well as good harass with his spear. Whereas gangplank has great survivability and mobility, while at the same time having great harass with his gun.
The combination of both their global ultimate makes for a great combo. It's a great combo to have pantheon start his ultimate, and before the other team sees the ring, have Malphite blow his ultimate, knocking the rest of their team up. As soon as they hit the ground have Gangplank use his ultimate so that they are slowed and it makes Pantheon being able to land on them absurdly easy.
Malphite is generally a very good counter to AD Bruisers. The problem is that he is far more of a tank and less of a magician to be able to have enough mix of magic damage and attack damage on your team. I can see this team composition as being a 'pub-stomp' type of team, but as you progress in rating into the 1500 and 1600s, I think you'll find that by mid game the other team will all have Warden's mail and you won't be able to scratch them.
Although it is a very cool team comp that I do think would be fun to play.
Suggestion: Try having Gangplank jungle, Pantheon solo bot, and Malphite solo top.
Or have Malphite jungle, Pantheon top, and Gangplank bot,
