IMO, Gragas can fill the same role as Malphite

gragas has less reliable damage and even though he's as tanky as malphite his only hard cc is sometimes a bit bad for ur team


I think I covered this already, but Ground Slam is PBAOE meaning melee range pretty much. Melee range barrels are not hard to land, so I wouldn't call them unreliable in the same situations.

Also, Ground Slam is getting a big fat nerf next patch. Barrel and Ground Slam will have the same duration and cooldown at max rank, with Barrel having more damage and much better scaling, and Ground Slam having more slow.

Malph's ult has a much longer cooldown so it's okay if it's generally better. Explosive Cask can still be extremely useful but available almost twice as often.

His body slam doesn't go through many walls.

And the best way to discuss a champion's viability is compare them to the champion(s) who do their job better.

uhh his body slam is one of the best wall jumps in the game you can go through all walls except for the thick parts in the river.....
