This is the build I use to be a support/nuke. I usually play 3v3, but I will explain a playing style that work in 5v5 matches too.

Spell Explanation:
Clarity - In the beginning of the game, before you get Archangel's Staff, you wont have a good amount of mana to continuously plant bombs, and when your a higher lvl, a little extra mana never hurts.
Ghost - For the usual, Running away or running to. Plus if added to time warp you will be flying across the map.

Items:
Trade in Amplifying Tome for Mejai's Soulstealer
Trade in Boots of Speed for Sorcerer's Shoes

Item Explanation:
Your main goal is to get Mejai's Soulstealer, ASAP to get AP as you get kills. So start by getting the Tome to get some AP in the beginning. Then you'll want shoes to help you until lvl 4, when you get time warp. You will of course want Archangel's Staff, because it gives a good amount of mana, AP, and mana regen, which are essential to Zilean. You don't need sorcerer's shoes, until a while later because with your +1 boots, Time Warp, and Ghost, you will be fine. Zhonya's Ring for its amazing AP bonus. Rylai's Crystal Scepter, for those hard to catch heroes, plus the health and AP is good. And last but certainly not least, Lich Bane! If the game goes on long enough for you to get this, you will go from support to full on POWERHOUSE!

Playing:
Try to start abusing and ganking right when you get Mejai's Soulstealer, and of course by abuse I mean slowly (passively) plant a few bombs on your opponent to get their health low enough for a full on Bombardment. As you noticed besides being able to run like hell and your ult, you are kinda squishy. So stay wary of ganks and stay away from the people pushing your lane. In 5v5 matches, you and your partner can plan to gank a person and your bombs will help in lowering them/killing them while they are running. Because of most of his abilities he is more of a combat support hero. Speeding up allies, or slowing enemies may push the favor towards your group. Plus if your in a 5v5 full blown team battle, your bombs will play a big role since most teams stick together. Also if timed correctly your Ultimate move will turn the tide of battle, especially if their team is focused on one person, like a tank. I hope you enjoy my guide, and my playing style helps you win your future matches with Zilean.
