Early Game:
People highly underestimate Nasus' lane pushing abilities. Spirit fire is your best friend for the first half of the game...start off with ranking it up so you can inch down minion health and then come in and level up your siphon strike.

Spirit fire is also really handy for holding enemies off from a tower. Nasus can easily solo a lane with a ranked spirit fire.

The philosopher's stones are essential for this farming build...gives you the extra gold and virtually no need to ever go back to base with the health and mana regen, besides the fact that it makes you very hard to kill with your ulti on. Start with two Faerie Charms, upgrade to two Philosopher's Stones, grab some boots, upgrade one to Reverie.

Mid Game:

Grab your hoe and get to farming. If you can find a solo lane, do it. You'll have 100+ minion kills by mid game and have your Siphon Strike to above +50 damage before any major teamfighting happens.

Late Game:

By this time, you've got insane health and mana regen thanks to the philosopher's stones and innervating locket. Build one of your stones into a Reverie for the speed boost and extra health and start to work on your sunfire cape and guardian angel for extra survivability.

You will get kills with this build. If you've farmed right, you'll have a pretty hard-hitting siphon strike and you'll out-level the enemy by at least a level or two. You'll be able to stay in for entire team fights, snagging the occasional kill with your ulti. The main benefit is your survivability. Like any other Nasus build, abuse your wither to slow enemies trying to escape teamfights or pesky Yi's pounding away at your casters.

Late game you can decide to replace your first Philosopher's Stone with a Force of Nature to maintain the regen, but gain some extra MR.

Let me know how it goes.
