I am considering making a fun Mage Build,but i can't decide which one. Is it Viable to Play a sort of "Melee" Mage ? (I've seem some out there,but i can't confirm if its viable).

I would like something Wearing a robe(for mana regen),maybe with Sneaking,but i guess it would suck,right ?

My main idea is : 1: Sneak + Daggers for hitting 2: Some traps and precombat buffs 3: After the Dagger hit,change to destruction and kite 4: Maybe,some some summons to help in battles

This would lead me to points in : Conjuration for Summons,Alteration for extra armor (i wont use any), sneak for dagger bonus,one handed for extra dagger bonus,destruction for extra damage with spells,and eventually, enchantings.

This is impossible of being achieved because of the high number of trees to spread points + the high need of stealth to pick x15 dagger multipliers.

Here is the build i´ve made

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The viability of a certain build is a grey area for a single player non-competitive game. You can do pretty much whatever you want. Its not like a certain build is so underpowered that you can't complete the main quest. Do whatever sounds fun to you! If you really want some opinions you may want to ask in chat instead (and that is the proper way to address @yx directly, rather than asking a question with his name in the title). – dpatchery Dec 22 '11 at 19:35
besides, there are people who have more answers in skyrim than me, you should go ask them :P – l I Dec 22 '11 at 22:25

I will refer you to this existing question

Is it feasible to play a MagiSassin(tm) in Skyrim?

as it covers similar stuff (magic+daggers)

I would recommend a speech only build. A "wise-guy" type who talks his/her way out of everything. Only fists, fine clothes, and followers for "bodyguards", as well as only leveling up speech. It would be a unique way to play the game and maybe give you a little bit of a challenge.
