Malphite is a champion that works surprisingly well as a support. He can counter pretty much all of the others in current meta, because hard engage on the ADC can be halted by him. Thresh, for example, is a very aggressive support which scales of AD which Malphite destroys, so whenever someone on your team is attacked in any way by Thresh you can just use all abilities on him and force him to run out of lane.
I have mained Malphite support for over 2 months now, he is my most played champion, and as of writing this I have won 13 ranked games in a row on him. I started playing it one time when I called top, but someone instalocked so I had to go support for a Jinx ADC, it was one of the best games that I have ever played.
Malphite should be played very passive pre-6, mostly just poking with his Q and killing minions with relic shield. However as soon as level 6 is hit then communicate with your ADC to go in, after that ulti the closest one or try to get 2 in it. This will get you a kill 70% of the time, and the rest will critically damage the enemies.
