As you may have noticed Artemis isn't the adc you normally choose. One of the reasons for this is her escape and damage ability being the same, meaning that you can either run or fight with no chance of changing your mind. I think this is a shame since I really liked to play as Artemis while she was "ok" and I still like her. After experimenting a little I came to the conclusion that with the right build you don't need to run away.
Building two stack items might seem like a bad idea, and I have to admit that this build makes it really hard early game. However, if you get a lot of stacks you will be more than fine both mid and late game.
As you can see, I choose to build transcendence before building devourers gauntlet. This may seem to be very stupid since devourer needs more stacks than transcendence. The reason why you should buy transcendence before buying devourer is that buying devourer first will result with you having a lot of lifesteal early which is totally useless since the health you get back from lifesteal depends on the amount of damage you deal. Buying transcendence first will result with you having a lot of damage early which makes not only your basics deal more damage but also your abilities, more specifically your three. With this extra damage on your three you will more easily clear minion waves making it easy to stack up your devourer.
Since the build doesn't contain any attack speed it might not be so weird that you should max the buff first. But did you know that the reason you don't build any attack speed items is because of Artemis' buff. Also her passive gives you more crit chance making it possible to buy malice instead of rage.
To sum it up, be careful early game so you can rek in the late game. (Also you need a support who doesn't steal your stacks.)
A good matchup with this Artemis build is Khepri. When he pulls the other teams adc in you will have a lot of free shots on him/her and then you can use your abilities to chase down the enemy's support. Also, since you can't escape Khepri's ultimate will be very helpful.
