Untrue, the new Sword of the Divine has an active that gives you dodge piercing for a short period of time.
The problem with dodge is that it only affects Autoattacking. Most of the damage done in the game, particularly at high levels of play, is with abilities.
There are only a few champions I would recommend dodge runes for: champions that already have something to do with dodging. Jax (his E adds dodge and lets you stun on a dodge), Katarina (she can get Dodge on Shunpo with Killer Instincts), and Sivir (who gets dodge while moving). Most other champions benefit from different runes.
