Ambush received a buff because it gives a maximum amount of AS without having to stay stealthed for it. If you consider it a nerf because they made it a short duration stealth, than you missed the point of the revamp.
Expunge: Scales better into late-game now since it has an AD scaling at least. The original Expunge may have been stronger early/mid, but it had zero scaling late-game.
Spray and Pray: Better overall since it "lasts" longer and is another AS and AD steroid.
Venom change is irrelevant since it's -only- a total of 72 with 6 stacks. On top of it, Venom wasn't an uber strong damage passive anyways.
AD growth change is a measly ~5 AD at 18. Combined with his base AD and he's lost ~10 AD. Not that
huge of a nerf especially since he gets some of it back with his ult and has a better kit overall.
