My thought is Karma+Garen bot with a strong assassin type top (Akali/Talon). Karma and Garen have kits that synergize really well together. Maybe not viable in Karma's current state, but if she got stronger slows, this could be a killer lane.

Try double-AP, its fun and shits on the squishy ad carry + support duo! (but got trouble against a lot other)

Aim for APs with high burst and a stun (for example Annie, Anivia, Brand, Ryze, ...)

Ya the current AD + Support has a lot of trouble with really high burst or lanes that can poke really well. Any comp with double stun or double burst champs will kill the current meta. Only problem is both champs need the farm there. With the poke comp, like rock solid has been using, its just a matter of poking you more than you can heal yourself.

I've seen Taric + Brand a few times, and I use to run Morg + Ezreal. Both combinations rely on holding a person in place for a bit to burst them full of damage.

Syncing synergy helps, and can be entertaining and get a few kills, but you aren't using the lane to the full potential.

Morg + Brand would be a beuitful thing. Something like Udyr Top, Teemo Mid, Morg + Brand Bot Nocturne jungle would be a tough game for the other team I thinks.

I got MPTS

What happens when you combine The Rain Man and The Odd One? You get The Odd Man... a beast that can play jungle teemo and have ganked top, mid, and bot and gotten four assist and one kill before the clock strikes five minutes. And in every single gank he tanks the tower himself.

Maokai+Brand is a comp Ive played around with duo queuing. It has less utility than Taric+Brand, but more poke.

Skarner + Leona
Sona + Soraka

The first one, either stand on your tower or get pulled into the biggest fucking CC + Passive Proc chain of your life.
In the second one, get forced out of lane, pretty much.

EDIT: And I wouldn't recommend Karma with Garen because both of those champs do best with someone with a slow, but their of those with Leona or Alistar is pretty nice. But I play offtank Karma so I'm pretty much always in a fight.

I think RS is onto something with the poke support since the sustain support got nerfed. But a lot of duo lanes can work well as long as they understand that 1 champ with 100cs and another with 0cs is stronger and more useful than 2 champs with 50 cs each.

a friend and I ran Orianna and Tristana. He poked the entire time as orianna and I just farmed up with Trist. He was able to get money from the ganks we did and we were able to wipe the towers out fairly fast. The passive on Trist's e allows you to clear waves fast. I wouldn't recommend this combo cuz its odd but we had fun.

I had a Alistar + Annie combo vs a solo laner (we didnt have jungler)

I was the Ali..and every time annie had her stun ready i W+Q ed him. And from lvl 6 we towerdived him twice.. tower was gone pretty soon after.

Also ganks were prevented by the annie stun and my cc. So we had a pretty easy laning phase.

kog/blitz both with exhaust and kog rushing sword of the occult. grab, exhaust, kog e(after exhaust wears off if it gets to that point)/w, death. even if they flash out they are still gonna have to back after that and it's free farming since the other person in the lane isn't gonna come anywhere near you. pretty high risk/high reward, but fun as hell if it works.

Maokai and Urgot is an idea I've been thinking about for awhile. Maokai's Sap Magic passive charges really quickly off of Urgot's Acid Hunter for last-hitting and harass, which gives him pretty nice sustain. Twisted Advance helps a lot to give Urgot an easy Noxian Corrosive Charge into more Acid Hunter harass and the two together have great lane harass. They seem like an unconventional but interesting pairing that could push the other AD carry and support out of lane.
