Orchid is a completely different direction then the focus fire build, it can be good against certain mobile heroes though.

The slashers way build seems to work way better then the maelstrom build from everything ive seen.
Wind is not a hero that normally dominates the early game, unless you manage to snowball. Mealstrom is nice for the early focus fire, but you still have that long CD.
With just aghs your DPS is already pretty good and becomes insane after you get a crit.
Desolator is purely for buildings, for damage on heroes crit or MKB is better since they proc stuff.

If you want more explenation watch slashers way, or purge's last wind game, where he also played and explained why you go aghs first.
Or just watch any recent pro game with her, since pretty much every pro goes that build with a blink and BKB thrown somewhere in the mix.
