This build CAN very easily make you un-killable but there are a few points you have to follow for it to happen.
1.) You cannot get cocky at any time or you will fall.
2.) Your not a tank and you have very little hp most of the game so dont rush in and think your going to own everything you need to use Deceive effectivly and play it safe even when you start owning everything.
3.) Dont get greedy for kills esspecialy early game.
***4.)Most importantly, as Shaco the only thing that can kill you at anytime is your own stupidity. Keep this in mind at all times.
This are your choise and are changed with personal opion although the ones I have set are the 2 that I find work best for Shaco and this set up.
Core item build
The break down
Malady is a great item to have early game. Its very cheap offers good attack speed and good life steal (50% and 15%)
Your boots. The Greaves offer some good attack speed to stack with the run speed your going to need.
Stinger is also like Malady a very cheap item and also offers some attack speed to stack with some very usefull cooldown reduction. Later in game this can be upgraded to Nashor's Tooth.
The Rod of Ages what would we do without it? This is an awsome item to get and it only gets better at this point in the game when you have your first 3 items this shouldnt be very hard to get. Shaco uses ability power which till this point is something you didnt have! Along with the Ability power your also greatly gaining HP and mana.
The Soulstealer, your ready for it. 20 ability power to start and much more to come. At this point your able to kill your enimies with ease (FOLLOW MY SET RULES) as long as your following my set points. So its worth buying and stacking now.
Phantom Dancer your last item offing you a bit more mobility, attack speed, dodge, and crit chance. This can be replaced with Lich Bane or Trinity Force.
Your moves and how to use them.
Deceive is your greatest escape tool and a great move to use to catch a runner or for some extra damage. This is how this should be used, do not use it ever when killing turrets or minions it should only be used when an enemy is purseing, you when you need to get away, your purseing and are sure your going to get the kill, for some extra damage you need to finish your enemy.
ZOMG THIS MOVE IS SO POINTLESS WHY WOULD I PUT MY FIRST POINT IN IT?!?!?!
Well, trust me when I say it is well worth your first skill point. Use this to kill one of the buff monsters once the game starts (yes when your level 1). Lay down as many as you can before the monster spawn and use your mana pot if needed. (3v3-Lizard, 5v5-Golem) and heres the bonus if an enemy walks near your traps they will rip them a new ***. This also fears and taunts so it can be used for your defence or to help escape.
Your ranged tool. The way I like to use it is as a taunting tool. Or a toss n run if you will. In the same sence it does great damage and can be used to purse, finish off the enemy, and slow down your competition. If your fighting someone 1v1 do not use this just to do it, its a waste. Use it to finish them or to slow them so you can run or when they are running from you.
Hallucinate is an awsome move to have. You make a clone of yourself. This is used for many different things. When in a close 1v1 you can use this to make the enemy switch targets and begin to burn them, can be used to push even faster than you already are, and can be used to deture your enemy while you make a run for it. The best part is when your clone takes the fall he goes out with a bang and explodes throwing knifes which does crazy damage and possibly giveing you an easy kill.
I will be testing this build further and will post screenshots of the scores win or lose here win or lose.
