Since tanks seem to always be whats missing from my elo-hell team comps - i'd like to start throwing one in.
Ideally someone who can initiate team fights - since that is the other thing we are always missing in teams and so we always just end up fannying about, poking and getting poked and never commiting.

Malphite is amazing - he would be exactly what I am looking for - but he is usually banned.
Same with Shen.
Amumu - I like in the jungle but he always seems kinda 'meh' in lanes.
Alistair - people yell at me if I dont play him support :(

I want to be the first man in, and the last man standing.

I sometimes build tanky on bruisers - but its just not the same.

While Jax gets free stats from his ult, i dont think id call him a tank since he is largely ignorable if you build full tank.
Voli, Singed, Cho, Mundo are a couple decent choices. Pretty much anyone with mad CC.

Actually, try out Lanewick if you're sub-1200. Not that WW doesn't do well above that as well, but he can be a bit stompy in lower Elos from his ability to do a lot of on-hit damage while still being tanky.

Build Spirit Visage, Wit's End, and Frozen Heart. (Actually haven't tried IBG, that might be better.) This gives you health, very solid amounts of both resistances, and good sticking damage as well as making your Ult pretty devastating.

From there you can either get BotRK for more damage, or more tanky items if you really do just need that tanky initiator.

In team fights, either force an engagement by ulting their AD and giving a great signal for your teammates to come follow up, or save it to peel off whoever dives in for your carry. If you initiate, WW's natural sustain along with SV can have him stay alive a lot longer than people expect. If you didn't dive in, then even though you're a tank, you still have a ton of presence they can't ignore.

Volibear all the way. Build him health items and laugh as the squishies try to kill you as you bite their face off. He has fantastic engage with his Q, his E is a small aoe slow, and his passive is often forgotten giving you 30% of your hp back when you drop below 30%...more if you have a Spirit Visage.
