This build I used in a 3v3 against a highly AP dependant team. The beauty of Irelia is that she can be built so many ways. This is what I found most useful when fighting casters. Here there are a couple of things to note.
The first, is that she is very resistant to magic damage, utilizing both magic resistance and her two shields (from Hexdrinker and Banshee's).
The second thing to note is that she still has very high damage capability, with her damage, attack speed, and abilities. Keep in mind this is geared toward killing AP users, which are generally pretty squishy.
The third thing to note is that her attacks take away mana which, combined with her attack speed, can make her incredibly annoying to fight.
The fourth thing to note is that the health she gains from Hiten Style is increased by the Spirit Visage, and when considering her attack speed, means she can often gain health faster than they can take it away.
Finally, with her passive CC reduction, she is able to fight casters like Swain, Malzahar, and Anivia, without worrying about stuns. In general, her build allows her to jump in, take out enemy mana, and deal massive damage to squishies very quickly, without worrying about being bursted down my casters like Swain and Anivia.
