This is a horrible support build. This is a bs support build that just wants to ks his ad and provides no utility. This kind of build is geared for supports that think they can dive in and do "tons of damage" but you don't so you just die, then the enemy dives your ad and your ad dies then you lose.
The key to support is utility utility utiliy. I would try to get 40% cood down reduction, auras of effect that slows enemies like frozen heart, and spam slows, stuns, displaces, like crazy. Get exhaust. Anyone that dives your ad, you should have so many repeated stuns, slows, displaces, silences, that your ad can just stand there and waste that poor assassin for even thinking they can get to your ad. Imagine a blitzcrank for example with 40% cdr. Assassin dives your ad, you powerfist, silence, grab, powerfist, exhaust, all while your ad is shooting his @$$... that mofo is dead.... and you run and powerfist the next fool, rinse repeat, win. You do no dmg but you ad is putting the smackdown on them while you pop and stun them. Pop em, stun em, stop em. Forget damage. Support is all utility.
Frozen Heart (CDR + Armor + Mana)
Shurelya's (CDR + HP/Mana + speed boost)
Speed boots to get to more idiots to pop.
Build over. Now just spam wards.

The items are (in no particular order):
Rod of Ages
The best way I can explain this build is a tanky ass support that can fight back. The support gets good health, mana, and regen from Warmog's and Manamune plus more health, mana, ap from RoA. Then the support gets a lot of phy. damage from Atma's and Manamune's passives. Next, just a bit of armor and mag. resist from Atma's and Mercs plus the tenacity.
Constructive thoughts and analysis of this build would be appreciated.
EDIT: Many of the items used to build the items listed does not build into items you would use for a support but this is a bit of a crazy support build.
