Extremely viable. It has vastly increased sustain over starting anything else. Think of it this way: those 9 pots keep you in lane longer than 3 pots+boots, and in that extra time you can buy more stuff the first time you back, essentially paying for itself while also being an extremely forgiving and safe start, with extra health regen and wards.

Especially if i play akali, a champ who has a very hard time against ranged poke until her level 6, i'll do this start so that i can withstand their poke and keep on chugging through my dismal laning phase to reach my godly midgame.

When I go top I start with a Red Elixr, 4 pots, and a ward. It works really well in almost all situations.
