I normally go AA staff, sorc boots, rylis. Depending on the enemy team i might get Hourglass, spirit visage or other tanky item. If it lasts really long I would grab a Deathcap. On rare occasion I get one or 2 cdr items(so i can spam laser bird and torment).
Typical build:
AA staff, sorc boots, rylis, spirit, hourglass, and deathcap
Ulti build: (this lets u keep ur ulti up a long time)
aa staff, sorc boots, rylis, chalis, spirit, and deathcap. also u need the blue buff becuase it can make ur mana regen per 5 sec hit over 200 (I personally got the blue buff once and noticed i had 250 mana regen per 5 sec)

Depends on how the game goes. He should always have a hextech revolver or something with it in the recipe. Then you build accordingly. Most games I end up with a glacial shroud and a negatron cloak in something, but that's usually all you really need to tank (turning the glacial shroud into frozen heart usually after rabadon's).

In your build I would replace spirit visage with glacial shroud/frozen heart. You have no armor there and it is needed for tower diving and tanking AD heroes.
