The real problem for AD casters isn't the damage they deal, but their complete and utter lack of sustain. AP casters tend to have spells that don't deplete their mana pool quickly, and sometimes even have mechanics that allow them to gain mana back without too much effort, as well as AP-heavy items that offer mana regen. Manamune is a step in the right direction, but it's the ONLY step, and it's not a good solution for many AD casters simply because it doesn't offer enough damage.

Will we get other AD + mana/mana regen options? Jayce has his own built-in mana sustain, but Pantheon, Talon, etc are forced to get caster items or manamune.

Also, if you don't buff Ghostblade or reduce the cost, nobody will ever get it. The amount of stats increase over the original Brutalizer is so miniscule, relative to what you gain, that it isn't really worth getting in competitive play. It's often more cost effective to sell the Brutalizer and instead get an item with better stats.
Of course, with the change you specifically mentioned here, it's more likely that it'll just automatically be upgraded into a Black Cleaver - every time.

I have a question, what happens to Darius?
His E reduces 25% of armor. That means that now with The Black Cleaver and Last Whisper He gonna ignore (90% - 10) of armor?
This is virtually 100% because any champ can be over 1k armor

Sry for the mistakes. xD

I'll make a note to look into that specific code interaction as Tiamat is weeird. Did you know Tiamat can splash magic damage *if* the autoattack is 100% magic? Tiamat is weeeird.
Recently played in a game where a Teemo troll stacked 5 Tiamats. It was surprisingly effective...

His e doesn't reduce armor, it gives armor penetration, two very different things.

I love the fact of items to fit you gameplay style...theres so much "you dont do that ****" or "you building it wrong" junk...i think this will not only improve game-play but overall enjoyment of the game!
