Athens Holy Grail is now a Supp item?

As a midlaner I used to favour Athens for its stats. It seems that this is completely out of the question now for the AP champs I play. Non of them can shield or heal another champ so no more mana regen plus the MR on that item. Any suggestion for an alternative? I only just about got used to the new S6 playstyle with burst mages now I have to change again.
