Only if you win lane hard and want to farm/split push all game. Otherwise, building single target damage (brut, BT, and/or LW) is much better.

Probably not. He has decent AoE damage with his W already.

Only on TT, Dom and ARAM. Otherwise, you want Bloodthirter. More AD.

I cry on the inside every time I see an AD caster build Sanguine Blade.

Eh, I don't entirely agree. Hydra will give higher single-target burst damage and lower single-target sustained damage than a BT.

The active contributes a significant amount of damage to a burst combo; much more than the equivalent gold cost in raw AD. It is therefore extremely useful against soft targets who are a tiny bit too resilient to get gibbed, and relatively weak against armored targets.

Hydra gives the most AD in the game without needing to stack. its just 75 flat AD. BT gives more if you can get and keep the stacks up, but overall hydra will give more AD in general and better lifesteal because of the AoE, plus the active is nice to mix in with Talons Q. AA Q AA Hydra Active.
