Tanky and tanks are two different things.
I don't see people in ranked picking Udyr as a tank.

I didn't list him; he's banned often, though not as much as the other 3 I play. I'll pick him up next 3150 IP i get.

I dont think he was looking for a true tank. It says he already had malphite on his team. I would say if u want someone tankyish try playing blitzcrank. not sure what really qualifies him as a tank but hes similar to cho'gath in terms of cc and damage i guess. less of a strong laning phase more of a fun one.

If we exclude Shen, Rammus, Amumu, Malphite, Alistar and Cho there aren't a lot of choices left. I could be a **** and nitpick about an arbitrary term or I could actually help the OP by listing decent substitutes. How are you not getting this?

I'll throw a vote out for Nunu. He's got a crazy good jungle, lots of versatility, and makes an excellent tank if the big 3 aren't an option. Slow your enemies, buff your friends, and your ult is, when playing tank, effectively an area of effect taunt that if then enemy ignores they tend to die. You will get CC'd hard when you pop it, which some people complain makes it useless; I'd call keeping your carry alive pretty darn useful if you ask me. It's also a massive source of confusion against mediocre opponents, as their brain kicks into gear having to figure out whether to stay on target, switch to you, or run.

The real trick to tanking with him is to get a couple of early kills in, which is why ganking from the jungle is a good option. Not being as much of a pure tank as the big 3 means the gold is quite useful in keeping him alive in teamfights later.

He's also cheap at only 450 IP, so there's not really a good reason not to have him in your back pocket.

Moakai. Why has noone mentioned him? He's an awesome tank imo, and his abilities all match the description.

My recommendations are Alistar and Maokai. Maokai really doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but he's a solid tank if you build him right.

Kennen still plays well as a tank as does Swain... but in ranked I don't know if anyone is really gonna see it that way.

I'm amazed no one has mentioned Galio, I'm not a fan of him per se but he is a legitimate tank. Other tank style chars I might suggest would be Mundo, Singed, Malphite, Taric, Jarvan, or Garen. While some may not be true tanks most have decent survivability and high health pools.
