This is a god who is mainly designed to juke and confuse his targets. Careful usage of his illusion will severely confuse the enemy if done at the right moment. Despite the fact the illusion is incredibly easy to disprove the enemy will not always be able to process this in the time it takes you to make your move with it. You can simply change places with it and appear next to them or approach from a different angle. His passive can in the right hands make him very hard to kill but often will only allow you to delay the enemy for a short time, it can also be used offensively for tower dives or other offensive plays. His ultimate alone is suicidal for an assassin, coupled with his passive he can create chaos and have a chance at escape. Essentially when you ult you force you and the ulted target to desperately try and avoid being hit for a short duration, ulting the wrong target can be devastating for your team and your odds at getting any kills. A smart player can create confusion with his smoke bomb, switch places with his illusion and land a stun on anyone trying to attack him in the smoke cloud.
