I would recommend you to buy:

Summoner Spells

RECOMMENDED
Ghost - I really recommend this because you need this to chase your enemies because remember you are A Tanky DPS and also for escaping tight fights.
Teleport - This determines you as a Tank. when there was an exploding teamfight you need to get close use Teleport, Or for example Master Yi is backdooring your base. Use it :)

MASTER TIP: You can use Teleport on Teemo's Mushrooms, Sight Wards, ETC...

THE GOOD



Ignite- your niche as a Tanky DPS sometimes you need a boost.. use this.
Exhaust- good for chasing enemies down.
Flash- Quick Escape. or Quick *Poof* near your enemies.
Cleanse- Use it for Heavy CC teams.


THE BAD



Revive- you don't want to die right?
Clarity- You don't need this.
Clairvoyance- You are not a support!
Heal- Warmog's Armor?
Fortify- Not soo good for this build.

Skills


This is your Peanut Butter It is use to harrass players, especially in teamfights. Hitting this with an enemy will reduce his/her Armor. use this in teamfights.

This is like your Angel :) What it does is forging you a temporary shield. there is a CATCH!
Nearby enemies are slowed and add +40 to the shield per enemy. When a whole team is chasing you use this. it will slow them and adds your shield strength temporarily.

This is your Jelly. It is good for harrasing enemies and farming Creeps. when you use Demacian Standard and then when Dragon Strike is aligned to Demacian Standard Jarvan Will pull him self to the Demacian Standard and knocking enemies in its path. Sounds cool a? there is a CATCH! when Demacian Standard is on the battlefield, nearby allies gain bonus attack speed and Armor for 8 seconds! Use this when in teamfights! it will benefit your team very MUCH!

This is your main CC! When used properly, you can bring the enemy team down to the ground. when used Badly you might end up losing a teamfight.

DO NOT TRAP YOUR ALLIES IN TEAMFIGHTS!
