Sheen is a reason (and maybe abyssal if you have multliple AP carries I guess).
But yes -you would never build for AP on him.
Manamune and Mercs are absolute core, then as you say it's very situational.
But for the price of a rushed Warmogs next you can build:
Glacial (for CDR, armor and mana - build to Frozen later), Sheen (more mana, a little AP double damage on hits - built to TF later) and and grab another null magic mantle (for either Hexdrinker or Spirit Visage) to bring your MR up to scratch.
I think going for the smaller faster items is just more flexible than rushing a Warmogs and then going Atmas tbh...although I agree Warmogs + Atmas is very nice on him (and gives his ghouls great stats)
