When are you supposed to buy it?
On what heroes?

I've only ever seen it a few times on trynd, cait and gankplank, but it never really seems to make much difference.

its a remnant of a failed attempt to make AA champions viable

It's fun as hell on GP.

If you happen to run Ezreal botlane, SS+Iceborn gives him pretty good pushing power, so required against wretches like Malz or Heim.

But pushing without much sustain. Go Sanguine + Hurricane and minions will actively give you health.

It's a successful attempt to add some context sensitivity to ADCs. Aimed at SR though so not so hot.

You'll find the point at the tip of the shank.

Ionic Spark was better. There is no room for this glass cannon shiv in dominion.

It's mostly pointless on Dom. Statikk Shiv only, and I mean ONLY, ever gets built on SR when the champ is going to have a lot of farm; this is because Avarice Blade makes your farm give more gold. The actual AoE damage on Statikk Shiv is completely trivial on an AD champ who uses crit as it deals magic damage.

Statikk Shiv's only selling point is that it's a PD that builds out of a GP10/bonus gold item.

Shiv is probably better than Phantom dancer for several ADCs. It's cheaper and does more damage for most of the game if you're not building IE. You can think of it basically as: 20% Crit, 40% AS, 25AD as an approximation for its passive.
