When theres even more annoying/threatening champion to ban like Eve
After the nerfs he dosen't have the infintie sustain anymore, or the damage.
His ult ganks arnt nearly as good as TF since TF has a shorter channel, global vision, less restrictive requirements and a ranged Gold card stun afterwards

IMO banning Shen is a wasted ban

Because
1. good meatbag
2. has taunt
3. has global ult that basically stops bot lane from losing
4. can split push super hard and still have teamfight presence

The better question is why are people banning Malphite, he's just so much weaker now and there are more champions that are happy beating him up with magic damage.

You say TF has better ganks. I disagree. Shen shields his teammate for more than enough damage during his channel, and has a pretty lengthy taunt. Additionally, Shen can throw his lifestealing sword on the enemy and allow your teammate (at low health) to jump on to the enemy as well.

Because you can't ban Black Cleaver, so he's the next best thing.

Because he is still in his release stage where he is your Support, AD Carry, Ap Carry, Tank, Healer, Bruiser and Assassin.
