I suppose I have 3 questions:
Is this a decent build?
Is he viable for TT?
Where should he play in TT if so?
Yes, that is a decent build. Although on twisted treeline you want tankier items like Rylai's or Rod of Ages.
No he is not very viable on Twisted Treeline, because even with all his burst damage he will rarely nuke down anyone on the other team, and as soon as his ultimate goes down, so doe he.
If he does play, solo bottom lane and stay by the bottom wall. Malz has no mobility and is easy to gank, so he need to get lots of farm and level up. You should always have red warded.
Good luck, Malz is tough.
