Mid level hero that will never be banned in ranked games?

So typically I think people ask, "What is the super op awesome destroyer of worlds hero that I can play?" Also fairly typically, Riot will send spies to read these messages and then immediately go nerf all of those heroes. So I'm wondering, what hero can I really learn that can be quite good with some time and effort spent learning them that will probably never be banned in a ranked game? I made the huge mistake of using Eve in my 1-25'ish levels because she was so easy to own everyone with but I realize now that she has basically no placed in solo ranked.
Now I main Kat and I can usually do fine with her in ranked games but she's very team dependent. Without a stun or two really all I can hope for is to not feed and get a few kills when the opportunity presents itself.
Suggestions are appreciated!

How about Nasus, he's one of the best tanks in the game and I have never seen him banned, and is rarely taken by someone else...

that or Sion, because he is a great champ that fits on pretty much any team

If you don't mind sacrificing some laning and mad dps, I recommend Trist or Ashe for carries. For something a bit sturdier, Xin Zhao has excellent return for what he does.

^ not often. It's more the big crowd controllers(and Garen) who normally get the shaft i.e. Taric, Amumu, Morgana... etc. Or a kog'maw if someone just got rolled with him

Learn Gragas, he fits multiple roles in whatever the team needs including tank, ap, and ad. I've never heard of him being banned, but I'm also over 2:1 ratio with him. Can't get enough of the guy.

Singed is awesome on a group, but since his free week I've actually seen a couple come out in ranked games.

For my list of "mid level" champs that you can play with almost no chance of getting them taken or banned:
Singed
Malphite
Nasus
Urgot
Kassadin
Blizcrank

All of them, you will note, have unique roles in a group and can accommodate most of the strange setups solo ranked will throw at you.

If you can master Olaf (he's a hard character not to end up feeding with), he can be your go-to guy for almost everything. He's an awesome jungler w/ undertow spam, so you can give your team an exp edge every game. Very good ganker also, and can build tanky enough to initiate fights when needed (though your better off dps and saving your ult for later).

Xin Zhao is also a character that fits into almost any team. Some ppl might hate on Olaf but everyone is almost always happy to see a xin on the team. Only problem is you will probably only get him 50-60% of the time, so you'd have to split time between two mains.
