In theory yeah, but in reality a team of 5 dudes can totally decimate pretty much any non-tank within 1 second, even if their damage is mostly sustained. Its pretty much impossible to make a team with all sustained damage anyways, and all champs have SOME burst.
Blitz nowdays is best as a support champ. He used to do better duolaning and getting farm as he works exceptionally well with TriForce, Manamune. But he isn't a great jungler nor top laner. He CAN WORK, but assuming equal skill levels, he will be at a disadvantage.
When strategizing, you always want to assume the enemy is just as skilled or moreso than you. You don't need strategy vs scrubs rite? :-)
So anyways, do the usual support build. 9-0-21 or 0-9-21, philo stone, heart of gold, then work towards frozen heart (usually), then aegis maybe, then upgrade the 2 GP10 items into Reverie and the shield doodad.
