Amumu, Shen, Alistar are great "tank" initiators. Malphite is pretty strong, too, but he usually works best in conjunction with one of the other three.

Nasus.

I'm not high elo, but apparently he's used a lot by those who are (from what I've read).

He's also a blast to play, his ult is so much fun to stomp around with.

Plus he has a great (5 second!) stun and a decent AOE.

Good high elo tanks? Any tank is a good tank if equiped right and played right with a good team.

But theres always a top few, which is Shen and Alistar.
Other possible good alternative tanks are Malaphite and Cho Gath.

Sion isn't a reliable tank.

Neither is Malphite. Tank malphite can only initiate and no one will target him unless he has some damage output.

Shen because of his taunt and lifesaver ult.

Rammus because of his armor reducing taunt and tower-killing ult.

Amumu because of his initiating stun then AoE snare ult.

Mundo because of the cleaver and insane regen ult.

Nasus because of his AoE armor reducer, insane slow, and crazy ult.

Alistar because he doesn't die and knockup/knockback combo.

Of course it depends on the player and team as well; but that goes for just about any class of champ.

Alistar is pretty much the best tank, hes plays so simple that 90% of people cant even play him at all.

Shen is consired the second best, his builds vary alot and overall he requires alot of map awareness to be effective.

Amumu and Rammus are tied, Rammus takes more punishment but Amumu can initiate alot better and snare using his ultimate. They output around the same damage, Amumu can jungle which gives you another solo lane.

Sion/Nasus/Mundo/Olaf arent tanks, they can be built as one but there never going to match upto real tanks.
