why i choose bloodstone over aghanims

this is just an alternative to the scepter, cuz everybody knows what it does and does deserve some merit. Rhasta has mana probz and anyone who plays with him knows it. He is one of the best teamfighters in the game. Hex the disables or carry and shackle the primary target then follow up with ether all after you cast wards where the escape for the enemy team is and most of the time at least three enemy heroes are dead. But, thats 1145 mana in a small amount of time and you need to be able to do that again, SOON! Thats why I think perserverance and the blood stone are viable options.

Late Game

with Rhasta, sometimes if I had a good game I can afford scepter or scythe after bloodstone. If this is the case its game over, an additional damage on wards means rax are done, or if you get another hex, what are they gonna do in teamfights? Three disables on one man? Thats crazy!
