Khroen's First Impression Mephisto build

I think this hero will be really strong after players are proficient on him. Mephisto is a hero that seems like he'll have a very high skill cap, and play a little bit like current Post Level 7 Zeratul with wormhole, but starting from level 1 instead. He has the potential to both be a playmaker and a strong sustain damage.
Malicious Intent
Shade of Mephisto grants 25% Spell Power while active and for 2.5 seconds after ending. If Mephisto hits enemy Heroes at least 18 times with his Basic Abilities while Shade of Mephisto is active, then increase the duration of the Spell Power bonus to 10 seconds after it ends.
Increase Regeneration Globe healing duration by 150%. Every tick of Regeneration Globe healing activates Lord of Hatred, reducing Basic Ability cooldowns by 1 second.
Unsure about this level 4 pick, I don't think you'll usually get value out of Hateful Mending, and it's possible youll get some value out of Static Barrier, but I think Spite is the most consistent.
Frost Storm
While Shade of Mephisto is active, enemies who are hit by Lightning Nova are Slowed by 15% for 1 second and the Slow from Skull Missile is increased to 50%.
Durance of Hate
After 1 second, unleash a wave of evil spirits that Root the first enemy Hero hit for 2.5 seconds and deal 250 damage to them over the same duration. Durance of Hate spreads outwards from its initial target, Rooting and damaging additional nearby enemy Heroes.
I think both ultimates are viable, just depends on the situation. If you need extra CC, or want to be the initiator, then Durance of Hate seems very strong, if you just want more spread damage/damage to finish a kill, Consume Souls seems very good.

I'm guessing Durance of Hate will be the more common option.
Lord of Hatred also reduces the cooldown of Mephisto's Heroic Ability. Mephisto is healed for 15% of his maximum Health and Mana when he casts his Heroic Ability.
Increase the duration of Lightning Nova by 1 second and the maximum amount of damage it can deal from 30% to 42%.
Not sure what the wording on Static Field means exactly but it could end up being really good. I feel like Animosity might be the best for consistent chunks of damage, which the hero seems to excel at.
Shade Lord
Activate to swap locations with Shade of Mephisto and refresh its duration. Passive: Shade of Mephisto benefits from all of Mephisto's level 7 Talents.
Level 20 I think either Shade Lord or Unspeakable Horror (If you go Durance of Hate) the extra silence is nice to secure kills, but the utility and mobility that Shade Lord has is also very strong.
