Edit 1:
-replaced Guardian Angel with Thornmail. Reason: Thornmail boosts the effectiveness of Galio's ult against AS and AD players.


Welcome to my first guide, ever!
As this is my first guide, on a rather new champion none the less, I would love advice in the comments below. Down-votes are fine if accompanied by reasoning in the comments.

This has been designed for play in 3v3 matches. I'm thinking of adding a parallel build that focuses on a more even balance of armor and magic resist to stand up to 5 man taunts in 5v5 matches.

Summoner Spells:
Flash - Trying to emulate the effect of an Amumu bandage toss paired with his ulti.
Clarity - In longer team battles and early game you may find that Galio can be a mana hungry champion, here's your quick fix.

Early game:
You are going to be using your Q to last hit bunches of minions. Focus your auto-attack on a minion separate to the one that your minions are focusing on so that when you pop your Resolute Smite so that it gets 2 last hits per. If you ever have to recall past level 3 you can start to get your minions to stack faster than the enemies' will. Do this by casting Righteous Gust (E). Why do this? You can stack your minions so that they out-damage the enemies' minions and you can focus more on harassing, knowing your minions will push the their waves.

Misc. Tips:
Galio's ult can be countered by Mercury's Treads, they will reduce the duration of the taunt and players can then just walk out of it. How to deal with this? It only takes 8 hits to gain all of the ability's power, after that cast Bulwark on your self to end your ult, this still causes your ult to deal all of it's damage and keeps people from walking out of it.
