Its Weird But It Works

With 3 phantom dancers, you don't need to purchase any boots. You receive a 36% movement speed bonus by having all 3. It is important to get a Wriggle's lantern because as a jungler it is a must. The bonus armor and life steal are nice early game as well as the free ward available every 3 minutes. By having a banshees veil you will no be as squishy because of the extra health and magic resist. The bonus mana pool is also nice. The infinity edge will cause your critical strikes to hit for 250% damage instead of 200%. It works very well with 3 phantom dancers because they give you a 90% chance of getting a critical strike. With this build you can easily kill anyone in a 1v1 when combined with his skills. Ganking is very easy with Shaco once you know how to use combo's correctly. Essentially you use your Q (Deceive) to go stealth, then you sneak up and lay down a box, then you hit your opponent with a 2 shiv poison knife to slow him/her. Then continue to hit them from behind as they will run into your jack in the box which will fear them. Continue to land another 2 shiv poison and hit them with ignite, If you need to chase or catch up to them use deceive again. This is how you will earn your first kill. From here you should judge which lane needs help and communicate with your team. Shaco works best when the fight has already started and he is able to sneak in and do lots of damage then quickly escape if the enemy team starts to focus him. With his ultimate you can control his minion by pressing alt+right click. A good strategy if an enemy player is weak but hugging a tower is to send the minion in and have it self destruct on top of the enemy.

Creeping / Jungling

Start out by heading over to your red buff and start placing boxes at 1:04. By the time the red buff spawns you should have 4 boxes up. They spawn at 1:55. Don't use smite because with a few hits from behind and the 4 boxes, you can easily kill it. Then proceed to your wraiths and lay down another box. Once it has feared the mob, use smite to kill the big one and finish the other 3 with auto attacks. Then head up to your golemns and clear them with another box and hits from behind. Make sure to use your health pots when needed. Then proceed to your blue buff and wait until you have a box in the grass. Once it pulls aggro your smite should almost be off CD. Make sure to not use it too early in case someone is waiting nearby to steal the buff. From here you can go attempt a Gank or continue to clear your jungle to level up once more.
