FoN fills a certain niche, but I still don't see it getting built that much on this map except by a few bot lane champs, and as one of the final items in the pooters build.
because similar to thornmail , FoN is actually a counter item only that FoN is tremendously effective when countering someone and Thornmail is just situational
as for the mp/5, well i like having Mana permanently instead of depending on a passive that probably will have cooldown the more M/5 you get the more the Aura will multiply it, only that besides tear and Prospector's RIng there's no particularly good mana regen item
