I've been rolling with Taric lately. Playing a support is really awesome now with the items since you're not pigeonholed into buying the same items every game. Last night i tried jungle Skarner for something different, still managed to win since we had a smart Blitz who would immediately drop a pink ward for against Akali. I would ult her, then the last night I realized it was Lee Sin who was causing problems, so I ulted him. We managed to win despite a braindead TF who didn't call mias or follow mid when they would counter-gank.
I tried jungle Xin, first time I've jungled with him or played him in ages period. Actually managed to win that game mostly b/c their Fiddle left (everyone but me had lag).
It's obvious now that playing a champion with hard CC makes it hard to lose.
