What mode is this for? Also I think Obs Shard should be a bit earlier in the build.

Also your build caps CDR (40%). I know the items you have allow overcapping due to their passives, but remember that Potion of Magical Might exists.

Lastly, in the tier 2 bancrofts start, swap one of the health pots for a health or multi pot.

This build is meant for Conquest as that is mostly what I play. OB Shard is only built late for the late game pen when supports have their full builds ready. Spear of Deso is meant to give a power spike against squishes. On terms of the CDR I am not really completely fond of Staff Of Myrddin so that was a over sight on my part. Additionally the reason why the aggressive start has 2 mana pots is I tend to always run out of mana when I need it to finish a kill since I can't always expect the solo lane to take the totem of ku. Even with 2 mana pots I run out of mana quickly.
