I understand the design philosophy behind Pyke was an Assassin Support

The million-dollar question is WHY WOULD YOU MAKE AN ASSASSIN SUPPORT? Was autofill that big of a problem? He gets all the benefits that assassins have (high damage, mobility, target access, really cheap items but that's an issue for another thread) without having the inherent risk that comes from an assassin, namely being useless if he can't nuke someone, bad laning phase, or just lack of sustain. Talon had his silence removed because CC on an assassin was busted. People complain about LB because her CC is nearly undodgeable. I want an answer. WHY would you make an assassin support?
