lol i find this to be pretty viable.
just stack rod of ages + sorcerer shoes and you got yourself a hp ryze with maximum mana from one item. (rod of ages give 700+ mana after 10 mins maxed out). the additional ap is good for taking down some towers and your E.

Yea the game only has to last 90 mins for this to be awesome.

well, baseline RoA gives about 500 mana, the only things that come close to that are Banshees, Frozen Heart, and a stacked tear/AAS.

*shrug*

Rod-stacking is hardly new. Used to be the common strategy for cho'gath and singed.

Everything you listed save AAS is better overall for ryze than an unstacked RoA. I love RoA but getting any more of them after about 25 mins is gonna be bad.

RoA doesn't give CDR, armor, or magic resist. You get comparable amounts of mana, armor, mr, and a shield that blocks spells by building frozen heart and banshees, not to mention the much needed CDR.

...next.

You have no CDR. Ryze is bad without 40% CDR.

This.

You walk into a fight with a lot of *slow* damage potential and a thick health bar, but your lack of Armor and MR means that %-dmg will chew through you faster than you'd believe. Kog, Mundo, Poppy, Warwick, anybody with Bloodrazors, etc.
