Lol not really. Sure he can tank a lot of damage, but there's almost no reason to target him in a teamfight since all he can do is use 2 skills then be completely useless for 10 seconds (which is a really long time).

Had a game vs an AP alistar.. **** he was scary.. Headbutt and then an almost instant hit with lichbane did insane damage.. plus they had a kayle and zilean guaranteeing that he would get away back out from any tower dive.. And it seemed like there was nothing we could do about it.

Anyways, a tank isnt necesarily the best initiator.

Shen doesnt really have the range to start a fight. But he can quickly react to help the initiator.

And while Galio can certainly initiate often he is a bit low after, and if you havent managed to break the enemy teams spirit, its nice to have some team mates with enough defense so they arent too scared to take over...doesnt have to be much as you just need them to be able to take a few hits so you can buff them and get healed.

Also anyone that the other team has a reason to focus can be built as a tank. Such as Soraka. She can be almost impossible to kill while you team cleans up the dps that chases you around.

There is so much miss information in this thread.

Shen, Rammus and Amumu are the best main tanks over all
other viable off tanks and semi viable main tanks are nasus, galio, singed.

The rest either shouldn't be tanks by tag( I like morde as much as the next guy but no cc stops him from being a tank, and vlad's only damage mitigation makes him untargetable, not helping the team by tanking) or aren't good enough I can recomend playing them if you want to be comptettitive.
