So, with the addition of Tenacity, I was thinking that Ninja Tabi would be considerably more viable. Here's why:

The reason Heart of Gold was stacked so consistently is because a majority of the damage in-lane is physical - even AP carries harass with auto-attacks, and drawing minion aggro means you can take some hefty damage sometimes. Ninja Tabi are only 850 gold, which means you can buy then VERY early, and in a tough lane they can build from the starting item of cloth armor + 5 health potions.

The tenacity items are obviously early game items - minor stats, such as 20 AD and 20 AS (I think), health/mana regen, or just a bunch of ability power. Ninja tabi's viability would stem from being the stronger pick in-lane, and thus these tenacity items would work well with it. Buy ninja tabi and a cloak + dagger, and you'll easily be able to dominate your lane.

So, I think that Ninja Tabi have more of a niche now (before, even against 5 AD champions, merc treads>ninja tabi because most champs still have magic dmg and CC) for early game dominance. What do you guys think about buying ninja tabi if you think/want the game to end early?

I made this post a while ago on the tenacity items thread. Ninja Tabi+Nimbleness gives more speed than Boots of Swiftness and it opens up the possibility of starting with Philo Stone, a strong laning item, transitioning into Eleisa's Miracle.

I find myself buying Ninja Tabis more often than I used to lately. They give you a really nice edge against any physical DD and they are very very cheap, so you can invest more gold on other Items.
