Seeing how the whole -20% healing debuff is there, will he be any good ?

No but not because of the debuff. Vlads pure viability in a non power laning sense is the fact that he has three viable AOE abilities and a powerful cleanup Q on no CD. Dominion wont have 5v5 fights, making his aoe a lot less useful. He may see play but he will be less OP than he is now

I agree with your other points, but he's not currently overpowered in any way.

im sure in a pain train comp he would be real strong because of the ult. and tides of blood would be real strong for defense

I think he'll be fine. With how quickly you level, you get past Vlad's weak period pretty quickly, and he's a very strong champion in small scale battles. As mentioned earlier, he'll be able to defend points like a boss and his ult compliments other AoE ults extremely well. A Vlad + Kat ult combo is devastating.

^^ this. Having stuck by vlad through all his nurfs all i can say is that getting past his week point in a game is the hardest part. Dominion will allow him to function better than SR so i expect him to be something like a dominion specif champ. There are always going to be better champs for SR and ones that are better for Dominion and in this case i think Vlad will be making several appearances; not to mention he is the fist champ i can't wait to try in dominion due to the increase exp rate.

I don't think he will be very good. There are better 1v1 fighters now. I think the same mages who are picked on summoner's rift will consistently be picked on dominion.

I love Vlad and will play him from time to time, but he will continue to be subpar in terms of power. Overnerfed.

Vlad isnt viable in summoners rift, he wont be viable in dominion after all the nerfs directly and indirectly.
