Nasus is a really good tank initiator in teamfights but often underratted Im going to prove that the Curator of the sands can Own if you play him like this :D

PROS:
Great slow to help teamates and yourself pick up kills
amazing ult that can 2v1 easily also a very good initiating skill
great farmer and harraser early game with spirit fire

CONS:
no escape ability
low health for a tank early game ( Decent health and armor mid-late game )

Summoner abilities:
Ghost- persanel preference... beacause of running through units for running away and chasing. another great choice is flash.
Ignite- great early game skill that kills you know.siphoning strike->wither->sheen>iginite
NOTE: this is not needed. Teleport or heal if your knew to Nasus are also great choices.

Item explanations:
Dorans shield- To take a good amount of damage early game and to stay in the lane for a longer time, sell when you can.
Ninja Tabi- best boots for a tank, 25 armor and 12% dodge to make your runes and and masteries more effective.
sheen- to pick up early kills early to mid game.
sunfire capes- THE AOE RAPE that works so well with nasus ult its like they were made for each other. the health and armor are a big plus too :D
atmas impaler- gives you alot of damage bacause of your health and gives some bonus armor pick it up if u can.

Early game:
Harras with spirit fire and keep the other team from leveling. If you have a dps or high spell damage caster as your laning partner you can get some early kills or assists with wither to slow the target and use ignite to finish them off. if you the other other team getting the upper hand GTFO and use ghost if need it, your much more usefull alive ;D

Mid game:
By this time you should have dorans shield, ninja tabi and sheen and maybe on your way to your first sunfire cape. If there are team battles initiate with your ult and make sure your team is behind you to finish the guys off.

Late Game: this is where nasus shines his sunfire capes+ult+ignite can DESAMATE your enemies and anyone foolish enough to 1v1 you. Tank turrets and lead the push when your team is behind you. NOTE: dont be afraid to ult when your about to die it might save your life and you might even kill the person that is chasing you.

Nasus is truly a great tank and team carrier use him wisely and you might guarantee your team a win so go out there GOOD LUCK and HAVE FUN :D
