I'm attempting to make a list of what support/ad pairings work well together in bot, and what counters certain bot lane champs. I haven't played all supports, so getting other player's input would help.

I figure Janna and Ashe would work well, as Ashe's slow and all of Janna's CC would synergize well, and it could probably be countered by a heavy harassment duo, like Caitlyn+ Sona.

Leona and Caitlyn I've found to be a good combo, mainly because it's insanely easy for Cait to be/get in range for harassment no matter when Leona stuns with an E+Q.Not to mention good placement of Cait's traps, and well timed Leona stuns could make for some good chain-stun skirmishes. It could probably be countered by a passive lane duo, like Soraka+ Ashe or something.

Sivir's short range but high damage, plus Sona's passive/ult could let them punish anyone who gets to close, keeping them from commiting to fights, while being able to heal up after any sort of poke. A duo with good early game burst damage and healing (like, say, Soraka+ Graves) could counter them.

Janna or Alistar could probably lane well with Caitlyn for a ton of lane control through CC and traps. Probably being countered by Sivir+ Soraka to heal through skirmishes, and Sivir Sheild those traps away.

Anyone else's thoughts/ideas?

Taric + Caitlyn

The 2 second stun will allow Cait to get her trap down on the stunned enemy. The stun-snare will last quite a long time and will open up for tons of harassment. Taric can easily heal any harassment laid on Cait.

Too bad Taric's gay.
