Build Summary

Starting Items

Notes Taking Death's Toll over conduit gem may seem like an odd choice as a mage, however, due to Tiamat's natural lifesteel, you'll find yourself running out of manna quite often. Not only does Death's Toll keep you topped off on manna it also boosts your already natural lifesteel allowing you to stay in the lane longer and only needing to recall for items. You Need Chrono's Pendant ASAP so focus on maxing that before buying boots. Teleport Glyph gets you back in lane faster if you needed to recall while your enemy is still in the lane. The multi pots are there just to top you off before you re-engage. Lastly, Hand of the Gods gets you into the lane quicker to help you get to level 3 before the enemy god, use at either of the buff camps, recommended at speed camp.

End game build Damage

Notes At this point of the game, you can single handily capture an entire lane with just you and your serpents. Starting at the fountain, summon your serpents and just walk up with them spawning more every time you get the chance. If the scorpions are up that's even better. Make sure the scorpions are attacking you as you'll need the serpents to drop towers. By the time you reach the first tower in solo you should have been able to drop your ult 3 times, 4 times for the second tower, and 5 times for phoenix. In duo lane, if both scorpions are up then it changes to 4, 5, 6 respectively. I'd recommend sticking with full power and just hitting like a truck so pick up the Spear of the Magus for your boots AFTER you have purchased your elixir. If you want max cooldown and some protection then pick up the Mantle of Discord.

Tiamat's Skill Order Notes Your 1 is needed first in both stances. As it's both your primary damage dealer in flight and your primary defense in grounded. If you're finding yourself on the more defensive side then Id recommends leveling up your 2 and 3 at the same time instead.

Extended Build

Mid game build Damage (10-15ish)

Notes The best defense is a good offense, therefore stay on the offensive and keep buying lifesteel. Picking up both Magi boots and Typhon's Fang will drastically increase your lifesteel and it will boost your clear as well. If they built Pestilence swap the fang for Spear of Desolation.

Mid game build Defence (10-15sih)

Notes The best offense is a good defense. if you find yourself losing in lane back up and stay under the tower. Stay in flight stance for as long as you can and whenever you get the chance, summon your serpents. They will naturally push your lane forward and you should find yourself starting to win your lane. If your finding yourself be dominated in the early game building the shoes of focus is a must then to get your serpents up as soon as possible.
Ideally, you build Mantle of Discord to start winning your lane, however, if you are just taking too much damage either build the Breastplate of Valor for physical enemies, or Genji's Garb against magical.

End game build Defence

Notes I rarely find myself in this build as it really only comes up if I need to cover for our support. This build gets you max cooldown which is a plus and thanks to a Tyrannical Helmet you can still solo conquer lanes using the same strategies as in the Damage build though you'll need the minions as well because your damage won't be there, hence for the Tyrannical Helmet. It's a Tanky build and you shouldn't find yourself dying anytime soon, plus your damage scaling on abilities isn't that high so you should still be dealing a decent amount of damage. In this build, you're going to want to be in-ground stance as long as possible and lead the team fights. I recommend diving in and immediately ulting the enemy team to gain an easy 1k scales and just tank a ton of damage.
