In an attempt to find a niche for Karma, I realized that she is actually quite horrible as a support in the current meta (as you can probably guess by her popularity).
I've realized this is mostly because:
A) She has no hard CC, as opposed to most other supports
B) Her heal scales with how much health you have, which as a support and ADC, is NOTHING
C) She scales well with AP, making her a very effective endgame support. This is NOT good if she doesn't get gold (so, she's dependent on farm or kills).
Because no ADC has an easily usable stun, can only land kills with help of the support, and are usually supposed to steal as much gold as possible, I have come to the conclusion that Karma SUCKS WITH AD CARRIES. I don't think she fits with the current early-game meta, which makes sense, because she's avoided like the plague. As is changing the meta.
So I've thought about what WOULD work with Karma. My best guess? Bruisers. Preferably those with an extreme threat presence once they get into your face. Renekton or Darius come to mind, making the ultimate kill lane with ludicrous speed and sustain.
But what about the AD carry? I thought about this, and there aren't too many AD carries that can do well in a top lane against bruisers. I'd like to say Caitlyn (early game presence, range and traps for bush warding) or Varus (% health damage, harassment, slows and heal-prevention) would do well, but I don't have any experience doing this, and I'd like to hear your opinions on anything.
Harassment counters most bruisers, and bot-lane would (theoretically) rip the enemy lane to shreds, so I can really see this working well. Worst case scenario, ADC is in a losing lane, but it's balanced by a well fed Bruiser (very dangerous and hard to kill), and an endgame support (Post-Lane teamfights FTW).
TL;DR: How well do you think Karma + Bruiser bottom and certain ADC's top would work?
And please, only logical discussions. I'd like to hear more than "Downvote, Karma sucks, noob."
