"One divine ruin and your done" <- Not true (-_-)

More than a divine ruin or a toxic blade will be needed to handle this build. Of going against this, I recommend to get something hard-core like cursed anch + divine ruin/tainted steel/insert antiheal item here.

I feel like having both pythags and bancrofts is overkill. Just go for 1 or the other and pair it with Typhon's.
