Been trying to play him with a Stormrazor + Shiv core (and Dark harvest) and then tank with moderate success.
The lethality build with electrocute still seems vastly superior though. You get your 2 core items (Dusk, Youmoos) and then with a GA you can go ham. I's get BC second if there are tanks in the game. If you play him well it's almost impossible you don't get ahead. Like its been rare for me to have less than 5-6 kills in a game.
