AP Yi has always been in a similar boat to AP Rengar, AP Sion, and AP Trist, but has picked up popularity with the rising popularity of reset-on-kill mechanics.
You KNEW they were going to get nerfed, because Riot just doesn't like 1 trick ponies.
Also, the thing that makes AP Yi an exception is his ability to reset his heal. If they save 1 CC, Heal gets broken -> Alpha and a kill -> Oh look. I can either choose to Alpha again, or be full HP. Hope another CC is up!
