Kayle and zilean have lower cds on their ults than karthus, it's a bad trade. 130 health absolutely can save someone, Garen's active reduces damage by 30%, Galio can shield himself. Lux's shield scales decently and can shrug off 5-700 damage depending on what stage of the game. Yi's meditate increases his armor and MR by a MASSIVE amount.
1) you not only damage one person, you damage their entire team. so even zilean/kayle might survive the ult will still help the rest of the team from ganking or pushing tower. also as i said it might be on cool down, they might not have enough mana, they might not remember to do it.. there might be a lag... all sort of things could happen..
2) lux's shield is 150+0.35ap.. 500 damage shield on lux means 1000 ap.. and 700 damage shield means amost 1600 ap.. am not sure where you get this data, but is no where near the truth amount lux can get in normal game.
3) galio's shield doesn't work on himself last time i check. even it does, it only give 90 bonus mr. at level 18 it is likely to be less then 10% damage reduction on himself.
4)sona heal for 130, sure 130 can save people. but not likely.. especially when his ult deal over 1k damage
5)Garen reduce damage by 30% but it have really short duration, so it is not easy to shield. plus reduce 30% damage doesn't mean he will survive for sure.
6)zilean's ult have 180 sec cool down.... while karthus's ult have 120 sec.. so it is still fair trade
