I'm pretty sure it would render cleanse useless and pretty much ruin a lot of things already in place. But I do agree something needs to be done about the amount of CC in the game right now. I'm just not sure if this is it.
Well the issue is that there is no counter to stacking CC. There is easy counters to stealth, which effectively render stealth useless, counters to AP DPS and Physical DPS, and even newly introduced counters to tank builds. However, there is no really solid counter to stacking CC. CC is already game breaking. Any competent team with the most AOE CC wins the game. The only thing you can do is have a team comp with more CC to counter it otherwise team battles are pointless. Dota for example had many heroes with CC immunity abilties, as well as an item that gives you 5 seconds of CC immunity that can be triggered every minute. These items/hero's weren't must-haves, but effective counters against other heroes and abilities.
I'd rather see more interactive team battles rather than just a roflstomp fest of AOE ults while the entire team is stun locked/slowed to a halt for 10+ seconds.
Also, cleanse allows you to break out of CC. My idea for an elixir would be something you couldn't use if you were stunned or silenced like cleanse. That would make cleanse a good combo ability with the anti-cc elixir.
