It takes no skill at all, to win against your enemy laner just because you traded, waited a multiple of 10 secs, then trade again and win solely because you have more hp/mp at the time, and your sustain will never run out as long as you go back once in a while.
I almost never play solo top role, but I go for flash+pots+wards and I end up winning the lane easily just because I have infinite amounts of sustain just by standing there.
Enemy laner goes aggressive? Who cares, just use your pots/flask and watch the enemy laner lose solely to creep harass.
The flask is even helpful during mid-game poke fests/team fights, sure it's not as strong as Soraka sustain but it gives you an extra 300 HP and 240 MP to keep you going.
