No. Even if he doesn't get banned, he's infinitely better as AP.

Support Alistar is better than AD Alistar. His ult's damage boost is only useful when tower-diving, and with the recent nerf to the damage reduction it's not a great idea to even do that til late game lately.

Your job as Alistar is not to attack people, it's to control them. His CC's have AP ratio's attached to them, not AD. Plus his heal scales with AP as well. His heal makes him very difficult to kill and sustains his lane partner as well as keeping people alive longer in team fights. I wouldn't go near AD Alistar for ranked personally.

I'm not sure who Reep is but I promise you he has likely worked his arse off to find all the in's and out's of playing Alistar AD. I'm not saying it can't be done, I'm just saying I personally wouldn't try it or want to have one on my team.
