Dude, there's something wrong with both your skill and item build.

Anti-Mage normally takes the bottom lane and annoying people will always try to harass you, which is why Blink is taken at level 1 and not Mana Break. Anyway, whose mana do you plan on burning at level 1? Only start with Mana Break once you're like level 5.

Now, why Hood of Defiance? He have Spell Shield which is obviously stronger. Getting Battle Fury at late game is pretty useless since you are not much of a pusher. So Battle Fury in early-mid game allows you to farm better and get your items faster. Getting Yasha early game is quite pointless, just get a Wraith Band and aim Battle Fury, then Vladmir's Offering then only Yasha.

Hey there to start off, archive this guide first so you don't get any unwanted votes. It's on the upper right corner, next to the edit button.

After you're done with that take a look at Dr. D's guide to formatting and my guide... on making a guide!

Read both guides, learn and let's see what you can come up with :)

As Anti-Mage your main priority is to get that Battle Fury at ~15 minutes: buying a Yasha before it doesn't help, as you will spend about 10 minutes for it. If you get it after BF, on the other side, you should be able to buy it in just 5-7 minutes.

Also, the Heart of Tarrasque is one of the most common extensions after Manta Style and your core items consist of supportish ( Vladmir's Offering) or not cost-efficient ( Vanguard and Hood of Defiance) survivability items, which should be avoided. The Skull Basher is good though, but I'd rather buy it after the Heart or BKB.

About the skill build, either you max out Blink as soon as possible or you go for the tournament build (2-3-1-stats-stats-4-2-2-2-1-4-1-1-3-4-3-3-stats, maybe adding more stats after level 6 if needed) because, theoretically, you should max out your Blink just in time before getting the Battle Fury and your Mana Break as soon as you get that Manta Style.

Also, use [Name of the Hero/item] but with double brackets for each side to show the names like this: Anti-Mage, Heart of Tarrasque etc.
