Spirit Visage is kinda broken atm and it is considered by some as the strongest Magic Resist item. Despite this, it is rarely bought on adcs and i really don't know why.
It's not exepensive for the income of an adc and it provides valuable stats: lots of magic resist, lots of health and CDR ,which never goes lost, while its passive works nicely with life steal, which is almost always essential. Its buildpath is fine as well.

So... yes a gave it a try and it works well against heavy ap team, especially against champs with sustained damage like Teemo. I also tried a double lifesteal build with Blade of the Ruined King+ Bloodthirster+ Spirit Visage and i could not die 1vs1 even if was facing guys like Aatrox or Jax.

So what are your thoughts?

I think it has to do with lockdown. With that I mean is 1 CC and dead scenario. Banshees veil allow the first CC to be blocked, GA allows you to get a semi-second chance if you get CC'd and mercurial scimitar allows you to blow away the CC you currently have.

Tbh, I like SV myself quite a lot and have built it on ADC's with success. It is not a bad pick, it is actually quite a good pick, but the others would fit the ADC more.
Change is gooooood

SV isnt going to help you if you get out of position and CC'd like the banana said, you can get SV if youre really 100% sure you wont get caught out of position but things like GA and Banshees will help with the assassin trying to kill you

that's why i tried it on Vayne and Caitlyn...because they have huge dps and lots of mobility/disengage.

Double lifesteal is already kinda meh and there are better defensive items than Spirit Visage. The cause of death most of the times doesn't really depend on too low sustain/life steal.

I considered it myself a while ago but I think for an ADC Banshee's Veil is better in almost all regards.
