I've got to say that it is a good item, but I still miss the Bloodthirster. I understand why it's not allowed due to it's pointless passive in Dominion, but I think it ends up being a better item overall. Sanguine Blade is a great item if you have about 1.5 attack speed, because you get those damage/lifesteal stacks up super fast. As long as you can continuously hit someone those stacks are amazing, and you'll see your health rocket up fast.

It seems to me that melee AP characters kind of get screwed in Dominion with Spell Vamp. They can still do a good job (In about 10 matches as AP Akali, I went #1 on the team in 8), but it just seems like they need an equivalent to Sanguine Blade. Maybe one that gives Ability Power, Spell Vamp, and the passive stacks ability power and spell vamp on auto attacks/spells. It would seem like a strange item in the beginning, but I could see it doing a great job for champions like Shaco and Akali.

Wouldn't the rageblade fit that slot for melee ap dps?

Seems like you're proposing a Hextech Gunblade and Rageblade combination? Hextech Rageblade? XD

It is decent. However it is trash for anyone other than an AS champ. They should make the stacks last longer so it it more viable for an AD caster.
