Is he still a ban with the changes? Yes he is I can see him being a huge lane bully with early game power. He has been said to fall off mid to late game but I disagree. I think he is still a threat with a good build he can punish the carries by getting in the back still and blowing them up.
Boots and pots to start or a flask ward pot.
Rush the tear, and the catalyst
I run 2 rod of Ages on him
Complete the tear to staff
abyssal scepter or rod are great on him.
For good damage deathcap.
