What do you think about Support Galio? Runic Bulwark is a great item for him, he has an epic shield for the ad-carry with up to 90 armor and mr, he has great initiation power with ultimate, he has great disengage power with slow and speedup. Because he doesn't deal that much damage anyway, I feel it is a waste to put him mid, so support would be a better role for him. He also scales better into lategame than most other supports.
He is gonna kill you!!!

I've seen Galio supports passing by, but none of them were really amazing :P

He has some annoying poke though. If he can keep up his mana, he should be okay I guess...
Which is not easy! :O
Change is gooooood

Galio really needs gold to be effective. He might not do Tons of DamageTM, but without items he won't survive long enough to get in the middle of a fight to get his ult off. Or he'll just die during his ult when he taunts a mid-game ADC. He simply can't get the stats he needs on a support's budget. While he can be effective as a "support", he's nowhere near as consistent as the traditional supports.

Also, there are other mid laners that don't exactly do incredible damage, either. Think Morgana, for instance; damage is not the reason you play her. Galio falls into this category of utility-heavy mid laners.

As for his shield, while 90 armor/MR is really nice, it's not actually as good as health shields in the poke atmosphere of bottom lane. 90 armor/MR is better in a long term engagement, but when trading poke/harass its better to have a shield that prevents enemy poke/harass from ever reaching your HP rather than mitigating its effect on your HP.

Galio has a really hard time being effective now. Q nerfs, penetration changes, all hurt him really bad.
