Twitch Build with Crit Runes?

So I was thinking, is it viable to run Twitch (or any other physical dps carry) with Crit Chance runes and a crit chance build (ending with Infinity Edge)? I did the math and the Crit Chance runes for a full crit chance page gives 20% extra crit chance. Plus the brawlers gloves, you start with 30% crit chance. Is this build viable and not a joke, or should I waste my IP on other runes?
I think it's kinda viable, because with avarice blades from farming and the runes, you can get like 50+% crit chance before you start ganking in SR (not gonna even try playing Twitch in TT, too squishy). Then, with the gold from ganking, ~100% crit chance and an Infinity Edge is not far off, and then my auto-attacks would hit for tons of damage, mowing through enemy champs like paper. This thinking is all hypothetical though.
So, forum, any advice?

Problem is, Armor Penetration gives more average DPS. Even just Marks + Quints of Armor Penetration gives more average damage per attack than a full page of Crit Chance, even when you have the bonus 50% crit damage from Infinity Edge.

The only person I'd suggest Crit Runes on would be Tryndamere, where Crits give you more early game survivability (Bloodlust) and Harassment/Escape (Spinning Slash).

I play Gangplank and get 26% Crit at the start of the game with brawlers.

2 Armor Pen quints, 1 Crit quint, all crit reds, all crit yellows.

Bottom line: Armor Pen > Crit Chance

Other point for the OP: Avarice blades are overrated and should not be bought. Even gangplank/tryndamere have more benefits from cloak of agility than avarice.

Don't waste IP on crit chance, please.
