Black Cleaver on Skarner?

Seems like a potent option since his slash is physical damage. I plan to try it later on. It's a shame the attack speed is gone.

You're better of with Icefist (?)

Its basically a Sheen + tanking + mana, what more do you want on Skarner?

Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude

It gives him everything but movement speed.

Skarner really doesn't focus the tanks, and is more of the tank of the team. Icefist is better.

Yeah, frozen fist is the way to go. Sheen + glacial shroud. Gives ap, sheen proc, cdr, armor and mana. All things that skarner absolutely loves. The slow is cool, though not hugely necessary.

Frozen Fist is good as well of course, though the slow is somewhat redundant. With Black Cleaver he could do some good AoE armor shred in teamfights.

He doesn't really need that as much as he needs to be tanky. The AoE slow is around the enemy so it effectively gives him a larger slowing radius that doesn't need to be charged

To be clear guys, I don't have anything against Frozen Fist. I think it's cool for Skarner too. I'm speculating on Black Cleaver here though.

The slow from Red Buff + Frozen Fist + Crystal Slash stack. The slow in not redundant, as it makes his ganks much better. His AoE is also small, so I doubt it'd be useful.

Could go BC as well, Skarner doesn't really get that much mileage out of it compared to, say, Rengar, but it's still health and CDR.

If it's damage you're after, could go Spirit of the Lizard Elder - Slash procs the burn. Or Rageblade. Or BORK. Or Gunblade.
