A.k.a I don't know anything about dota.
Heart is awful. Specially so for strength heroes. Raising your hp from 2500 to 3500 is plainly not useful or efficient in any way whatsoever. On a low hp hero like Leshrac that needs to tank, heart is useful because raising hp from 1500 to 2500 actually matters. Ever since the nerf to heart regen it isn't very useful on them either.
If you want survival get CURIASS on strength heroes because that is also an offensive item. If you want to boost str ( which is completely inefficient for reasons I have described before ), you should get armlet+satanic, not heart. Though that is still less useful than simply buying damage items.
BFury is a damage item. If you don't like it for whatever reason, replace with deso/MKB although in CK's case BF is a lot better.
Here's a replay to show how useless heart is on str heroes
GosuGamers DotA | Replay: EHOME vs cD
25 min PT-vlad-BKB with level 16 wicked sick Lycan and then proceeds to become completely useless by buying heart. Amusing as well as painful to see how he can't kill anything except towers and raxes when noone's around ( lol-backdoor, the only heart is actually good for ). Guess why? He doesn't have damage items ( he went for I'm gonna tank build ).
This fail is often observed in competitives.
Unique vs DTS (05/18/10)
Kunkka: Fuck lothar/BF/buriza. I'm gonna tank! Vanguard bkb blademail lifesteal ftw..
Mski vs Nirvana.my
Dragon knight: I'm gonna tank+be initiator! Hood+bkb+blink ftw
Alchemist: I'm gonna tank! Hood+vanguard+platemail ftw
Razor: I'm not a str hero, but I'm gonna tank too! Vanguard+bkb+skadi ftw
In my opinion the reason why we see this mentality of str hero= tank+initiator is because they often don't pick actual initiator tank heroes, or if they do they treat them as wardbitch = underfarmed, underleveled so they end up actually not being able to initiate or tank. One good example is tidehunter. It might sound funny but you actually sometimes see ghost scepter on tidehunter in competitives becoz he's totally unable to fulfil his role as tank-dps and is reduced to being walking ultimate. Rofl.
