She has an AS steroid, abilities scaling to AD, and an extremely potent stick, plus her ult. If anything, her kit implies she can be built any way you want. And people built her AD viably long before anyone though of AP in the current seasons.
You're not making a compelling argument for why she shouldn't be built AD. You seem to be mixing up soaks with assassins, but that's another can of worms.

This is specifically for gankin a lot. People willtarget you because your eve. But now itll take longer for them to kill you aka your adc amd top (hopefully more damage than tank) and.mid have more time to hit them. If someone is getting away, her kit specialized on sticking to enemies, allowing you to chase. This is fairly hard to achieve since you go from ad damage to hybric tanky. But it is a destraction mainly. How often have you seen a tanky eve? How fast does eve usually die? Her q allows her to hit mulitple targets fast. Aim her. Now you dont die so fast. Andbecause of eves passive, you can give blue buff fairly early without suffering too much
Banking on your opponent's team being stupid is a bad idea.
Not that you want to ignore survivability on Eve, but more so that it's not your job to be absorbing blows, especially when you build AD centric. Eve's got some of the best clean up potential for a reason, and emphasizing gear that keeps you alive too much throws that out the window. Trinity Force and a GA is about
all you need.
And eve fundamentally doesn't need blue buff. Her abilities are on low CD's, and her mana problems are virtually non-existent.
AP mid is a popular build, but because of that people know how to counter it. If it remains popular, it'll get nerfed, and if it doesn't you'll find yourself facing Ryze or Katarina every single game.
