If you are going Rylais, wouldn't Brutalizer be a good item? Better damage, and reduced cooldowns?
I thought about Sunfires, but I went with Warmog's instead to buff the power of Atma's.
Also, the problem with Brutalizer is it doesn't effect magic damage, thus does not stack with with Pirate's Q, so I kinda threw that out.
Also, I'm not sure about Rylai's, I really don't feel as though I'd get the full benefit from it.
Does anybody know how his Q behaves with both Frost Mallet and Rylai's?

It's more of a damage/tank hybrid. Gangplank makes a good tank in the sense that he can out-farm your typical straight bar tank, thus get the items faster, thus make up for what he lacks in tanking abilities in income.
I see him as a platform that you can safely push lanes and take towers, escape from hairy situations with his ultra-clense-heal-remove-scurvy, and also be a huge benefit in team fights.
Plus, you don't need Phantom Dancer to get kills with Gangplank, I'd much rather put that money into HP which then benefits my Atma's.
