I have been using this build since Vlad was introduced. I've tried the 9/0/21 route, but wasn't satisfied. With my current build I've been able to stay alive early game allowing me to get some much needed kills early on.

I always start with the Ruby Crystal since it gives me a nice +180 boost at the beginning putting my HP ~735+ @ lvl 1, which is great for pre-game battles. From there I'll continue to build Warmog's. I'll buy basic Boots of Speed to help out with his slow movement speed. I normally won't upgrade to Sorcerer's Shoes until after i get 1 Rylai's Crystal Scepter since i feel his Sanguine Pool is an excellent get away ability when needed.

I like this build, but I'm sure it can use some fine tweaking. I'd like to replace the Magic Penetration Quintessences with some HP ones. As well as try to stack more AP, early game. With most champions i feel Warmog's is a waste of money as it costs too much for the bonus it gives you. I still feel it costs way too much, but Vlad seems to benefit from it more than any other champion. I'm going to try a build that works away from it depending on whether or not he'll be nerfed in the next patch.

I've been able to get top kills on my team with this build. With no more than 4 deaths in game. I've even managed to stay alive against a 4-man gank using Hemoplague, Tides of Blood, and Sanguine Pool rotation. Allowing my team to run clean-up with me walking away with some kills. We normally win by the time i have 4k HP, but I've had as much as 5.4k+ HP for the longer games.

Please use this build as a guideline and not a hands down build. We all play differently and this matches my play style perfectly. This is my first build so please give some constructive criticism. There's a Nuke Build created by SmartxAxBSH for those who wanna try it. It looks pretty stable and I'll probably give it a try.
