Did you read the entire post or do you just like being an abrasive ass?
This I dislike it when people walk into a perfectly civil topic and start badmouthing people like they know everything. --- How does Riot keep it's balance? That I can tell you in one word! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRdfX7ut8gw

i have been consistently not buying boots until 20+ minutes into the game, there are so many things that are more useful than 25 ms. the enchantments are nice, also, but are quite a ways out of the way.
flask is very good on aggressive supports because it allows you to bully the opposing support if they do not have one. I stark flask + 2ward on Blitzcrank because it means i have that much more health at my disposal - 300 HP from each recall. I am more inclined to force trades because I can heal it up much better than philo soraka can.
I had not considered starting Mana Manip, building into Shard is very convenient, I'll give it a shot
edit: I will also say that I have been sticking to using GP5 quints, but now with more ambient gold I might switch those out for HP5 like you have --- http://img.imgcake.com/McBones/MvC3politicalupdatejpgyt.jpg
