Works very great! Test it yourself :)

Early game

You start with Doran's Blade and a Health Potion go to your lane (I prefer mid lane) Important that you don't over use Mystic Shot at the beginning while you're laning. Now I mostly try to get a solo lane or mid lane. As Ezreal is a very good ganker! You must not over use your skills at the beginning cause of your mana. Only use ability's as Mystic Shot and Arcane Shift on clear shots at your opponent, don't use them to much in early game at minions. Now you have to play SAFE all times untill you are willing to take a risk and your chances of killing the enemy is high enough. Don't go into battle if you're low on health. Try to get your first kills slowely. Sometimes getting kills is pretty easy, depends on who your fighting against. Most of the times players like Ashe or Miss Fortune (AD/AP Range). This doesn't matter however in early game you must be very carefull. If you don't like the champ you're playing against don't hesitate to switch off with one of your team mates. Laning on side lanes with a partner isn't bad at all. Ezreal is excellent at pushing. You're soon able to buy Boots of Speed and another Doran's Blade. Why another Doran's Blade? Well the health, AD and lifesteal is a nice boost in the beginning. Most of the times when I recall I won't forget 2x Health Potion's.

Mid game

I think you got a couple of kills now or enough gold from farming to start buy The Brutalizer. Now this item is a pretty big boost at mid game, you'll be around level 8 now and the cooldown + ArmP is good. Try to gank as much as possible and don't forgot to farm enough gold for the next upcoming item. At this time you'll buy Tear of the Goddess and a Long Sword to later expend to Manamune. Before you buy Manamune I want you to upgrade your boots to Boots of Mobility It's a must! You got to be very mobile to escape as to attack quickly. Tower diving on squichy champs is one of Ezreal's greatest ability's. The item Manamune really does a big boost. If you hold your mouse of the item's name you'll see the adds it gives. Look at the last part please 2% of your maximum mana is converted to attack damage. As Ezreal runs out of mana quick, this mana+AD boost helps you trough mid as late game. At this point of level you can almost kill everyone pretty fast but you have to be carefull for CC. Morgana, Swain and champs like Sion are champs really to look out for. Don't try to be a hero and do something stupid around those guys. Just stay behind the tanks and mostly others in team fights. I mostly save my ultimate against enemy's with low life. But it can also be used as a nice opening at team fights. But remember!! You're AD Ezreal not AP. After getting Manamune the item Sheen comes in place. That means +250 mana which 2% converted to AD = a free +5 AD. Also the passive of Sheen is 100% chance when using an ability the next attack will have 80% more AD on your normal attack.

Late game

Here you are, late game. Sell one of your Doran's Blade's and buy a B. F. Sword when you got enough gold from kills, farming. It's important that you kill the dragon and maybe even the barron with your team when you can for more incomes. You'll expend the B. F. Sword to The Black Cleaver +75 AD and a passive, reduces enemy's armor by 12 for 5 sec. Max stacks = 5. After you bought it it's time to expend your sheen into Trinity Force. I most of the times sell another Doran's Blade if I got enough gold and buy Phage right away, cause it adds AD and Health aswell. When you are able to buy Trinity Force you will get alot of boosts added as you can read. Then I always start with Vampiric Scepter and expend it to The Bloodthirster for more AD and Lifesteal. Why lifesteal? It will help you alot to stay alive when diving on a champ near a tower or in team fights. As you will take alot of damage during fights the ability to suck someone's life from an opponent makes you're survivability chance alot higher. As final item you'll get Youmuu's Ghostblade cause in early game you had The Brutalizer which you can finaly expend. Most of the times you won't make it this far with your build but just in case. I switch Youmuu's Ghostblade to my item slot #1. Cause you can activate it gaining +20% movement speed and +50% attack speed for 4 sec. Good to chase down people.
