Any situations where all the unloved items like Zeke's Herald, Banner of Command, Guinsoo's Rageblade and Ohmwrecker may prove to be useful?

Banner of command is good in urf if vs a lot of AP.
I've built banner of command a few times when I'm on a heavy AD team that has hypercarry potential
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

Banner of Command is a strong item if you have baron control but you can't siege through mages like Xerath or Ziggs. If you cast the active on the cannon minion, it becomes undestroyable by mages and needs the enemy ADC to go out of position to clear them. Then you can catch the ADC and roll over with that.

Zeke's Herald is usefull in a protect the AD Carry comp where your team totally relies on the ADC. Or if you have 2 ADC's.

Ohmwrecker has actually usefull stats, but the active is useless.

Guinsoo's Rageblade is strong on Hybrid champions which also use attack speed, tho nobody uses them and if other items have priority. The item also offers no really usefull passive/active.

I like banner of command when I want to do some hardcore splitpushing.

Zeke's herald and ohmwrecker are alright-ish, but the alternatives are just in many ways better. Usually randuins is better than ohmwrecker and zekes herald is usually outshined by better tanky CDR items (like frozen heart or spirit visage) and/or better lifesteal items (Ravenous hydra, BotRK and Bloodthirster).

Guinsoos would be a good item if there actually was a champion that was good hybrid. As there isnt hybrid penetration, guinsoos shall be a nono.
Change is gooooood

Banner of Command is the fetish item of Koreans in LCK. I just saw it twice today in one game and it's mostly picked up by junglers and support. You can abuse your opponent team having a lot of AP damage or difficulties when it comes to sieging.
Thanks to Natuhlee for this sig!

I've seen Ragebalde synergize well with Aatrox. He can benfit from almost every aspect. The Spell Vamp isn't very effective, but the 10% Lifesteal, 20% AS once you fall under 50% hp. Guess what also increases when you fall under 50% hp? Your Blood Thirst. Now with the buff form Aatrox when you get 20% of Blood Well for each person hit, and the Attack Speed buff from that, you literally become an unstoppable healing tank. Especially when you have Spirit Vistage. Thats just my 2 cents on it.

Sounds like fun. Maybe I should get Aatrox just for that weird build

Guinsoo's Rageblade is a great item for Jax, Kayle, and AP Xin Zhao, but none of those champions are top of the meta at the moment and they're only 3 out of a pool of 120+, so that's why you don't see it very often.

Zeke's herald looks like a good item, but the role it fits into is pretty weird....sort of like a semi-tanky/support bruiser who autoattacks a lot (but still benefits from the CDR) and has AD-focused teammates. It works well on junglers like Xin Zhao, Jax (maybe?), Aatrox, or heck even Tryndamere.

You could do a super support tank jungle build with one of the above champs like this:

zeke's herald

You can towerdive like a boss and tank whatever while your buffed up team tears up the enemy team.

What about aura tank Janna? She gets plenty of assists with Athene's Unholy Grail, Abyssal Mask, Banner of Command, Locket of the Iron Solari, Spirit Visage, and either Zz'Rot Portal or Guardian Angel depending on how objectives are doing.

As for the others (besides Zeke's Herald, which has its uses on fighters and tanks), they just don't seem up to par with the countless alternative items.
