All of this exactly.

Plus, he's uncommon enough that in normals, he wrecks face.

Seriously. Frozen heart + Abyssal Scepter + Rylais. Every team fight, I ult the enemy ad carry, blow all skills, and ignite. Dead carry = fight over before it even started.

I'm currently on a 16 game win streak with that. Make it so.

Malphite is just a really strong pick for facing AD teams. Considering the current meta usually has 3 AD, an AP and a Support, Malphite is just a strong pick for when Shen is banned. I've been playing Malphite a while now. He's strong because he can take the beating in a 1v1 and emerge victorious. Unless you're facing a counter like Yorick, you should be pretty set in the top lane. He can usually push very safely because he has so much survivability. He has a slow, an attack speed reduction, and at lvl 6 his initiation tool can also be an escape (I usually use it to set my jungler up for a kill or get one myself).

tl;dr: Malphite is strong and people are starting to see that thanks to pros.

Malph is a great AP mid as well surprisingly. He just fills in any role pretty well if played correctly. (Besides AD carry ofc.)
