He was nerfed into oblivion with the AP ratios on both his ult and his Q, and his passive reworked to make him more into what he was intended to be; an AP bruiser-type top laner.
Right now, he's simply outclassed in terms of damage and mobility in the middlelane.

Because when a Champion gets nerfed everyone just drops him and looks for the next OP. Hence why Kassadin doesn't even need to be banned anymore because no one plays him, despite still being pretty strong.

I like Gragas. But why not Syndra instead? Stun, Waveclear, Ult can 100-0.

He got reworked so that he's not a mid champion any more?

Lets see here, pre-nerf Gragas could do the same damage as Syndra except he can do it to an entire team because its a massive AoE and it has a knockback, Gragas had more waveclear and he was tanky, he also had mobility, it doesn't take a genious to figure out why Gragas was a better pick, now he's not even picked anymore.
