I like to call the Blink Dagger a "Substitute" for the Shadow Blade. In my own jargon, a "Substitute" is an item that can fulfill the same purpose of another if necessary. I love to consider some Substitutes so that way I can always play the same way while still staying loyal to my own playstyle.

For example, I buy a Blink Dagger as a Substitute for the Shadow Blade if I can't use the Blade to escape reliably. However, I can also buy Linken's Sphere as a Substitute for the Black King Bar for some extra stats and some more interesting teamplays. :)

And, I think as a mid build, you don't need to max out shrapnel first, take aim should be maxed out instead along with headshot. Maybe just put 1 point in shrapnel

Shadow Blade and SnY should be core on sniper, otherwise no extra movement speed/escape
You don't really need Manta, it should be situational, and Deso is not a bad situational pick either

i did play sniper a lot (200+games). 3k+mmr you can build sb and use it to reach a save position and deal some extra dmg with you first hit. under 3k mmr it is good für escape. dont forget the 30 AS and dmg are rlly nice. try out 2x mahlstrom into 2x mjolnir after dragon lance and sb (flash farm abillity YES PLZ!), you can hit the carry and kill the support just with the lightning :D.// MoM is good for 2 things 1. you have a lot of lockdown and you are able to used in fights 2. stay in lane vs some herass heros like WR, Kunkka, etc. // Im not a big fan of crit, love the mkb for hg fights....survivability items are crap on sniper -> if they reach you, you are dead! 1090 range is your def --- they pick heros like nyx or riki -> dont pick sniper :)

I know from personal experience that Sniper's too easy to gank & kill w/o a Shadow Blade. (Fucking Pudge. XD)

Good guide, but the MoM items are organized badly. Four UAM items (maelstrom, MoM, EoS, Satanic) just remember to only pick one, as haivng all is useless.
