I could see Nashor's tooth replacing the Frozen Heart for less tank & more damage/dps.
Isn't it ironic that one of Janna's default recommended items in game is Frozen Heart?
I've thought about throwing in Nashor's Tooth before, but if you want better DPS, it might be better to just build Janna as DPS. I've noticed that splashing your build tends to weaken it on both sides. I don't think plus 30% attack speed will benefit Janna much without also increasing attack power and crit. strike.
Frozen Heart decreases enemy attack speed and grants you 99 armor, which in a way helps counter DPS itself, since more than less DPS champions rely on physical damage.
However, a bit of DPS couldn't hurt, and I might consider throwing in Wit's End. +40% attack speed, but also +30 magic resistance to help out the tank build.
