I read a guide for Melee Kassadin, but it was made a while ago and I didn't feel like necroing it. Is melee Kassadin viable still?

Thanks

He's viable, just not as effective as AP kass.

If enough conditions are true, even Teemo going Atma/Warmog can win the game (for example, just go around dropping shrooms, killing wards, and backdoor tower all day)

Melee Kassadin is viable. Like RoflTroll said, there's a place and time for almost anything. And just because something is not optimal, doesn't mean it's not viable. It can even be a good idea to run Melee Kass in certain situations: enemy team has very low cc, your team has too much AP (which should have been taken care of on the champ select screen), you get mid or solo top vs. certain champs, etc. Melee Kass should be thought of as a Melee DPS/Utility/Chaser hybrid. Not as good as Yi, Xin, or Tryndamere at melee DPS, but he brings other things to the table (silence, slow, and blink all in one champ).
