This is a good option, too.
AD offensive Caster build could be balanced around a pool of items rather than just two. I think Riot tried to get away with only releasing 1.5 ad caster items instead of building a suite.
Ghostblade (Loosely equivalent to Deathfire Grasp)
Primary Function: Armor Penetration
Secondary Function: Chasing, burst.
Critical Strike Chance
Active: Gain massive attack, movement speed, and armor penetration.
Black Cleaver (Loosely equivalent to Malady/Abyssal Scepter)
Primary Function: Teamfight Utility
Secondary Functions: Dueling, anti-tank.
Unique Armor Shred on Physical Damge
Lord Van Damn's Pillager (Loosely equivalent to Deathcap/Infinity Edge)
Primary Function: Late-game scaling/carrying
+Unique Cooldown Reduction
+Unique Passive 10% Bonus AD scaling on abilities.
Ravenous Hydra (Loosely equivalent to Bloodthirster/Will of the Ancients)
Primary Function: AD casters get sustain
Secondary Function: Extra AD ratio and aoe damage.
+ Unique HP Regen
+ Unique Lifesteal
+ Unique Active Crescent
+ Unique Passive Cleave
Balance the four items around AD casters/assassins with reasonable prices for utility/power. Success?
