Notes

Starting the game as Agni your wave clear isn't great and you will often get out pushed. Your focus should be on playing as passive as possible until you hit lvl 5 and can use your ult to poke/clear wave.

Ideally you should farm until you have enough for full boots for your first back. That is the idea behind the 3 health pots and the 2 hybrid ones. If you are playing conquest instead, you should replace the two hybrid ones with mana pots as there won't be a mana buff for you early.

Mid Game Build
Build Section
Notes

In mid-game this is where Agni can shine and deal a ton of poke.

I prefer Shoes of the Magi over Shoes of the Focus because of the extra sustain from the lifesteal. CD works well on Agni but the extra power can really optimize his poking during mid game.

Charon's Coin is a very strong sustain item on Agni and that is why I like to build it early. In addition, there is more opportunity for it to be fully stacked earlier in the game. If the enemy team has a lacking front line going Chronos' Pendant can be a good choice as well for CD.

Divine is essentially a staple to most Agni builds as healing is very rampant in smite right now. If the enemy team lacks heals it is preferred to build Spear of Desolation instead. However, this doesn't happen that often.

Late Game Build
Build Section
Notes

Late game is also a strong point for Agni as he can make very good use out of both Soul Gem and Soul Reaver. Agni's passive can both proc a stack of Soul Gem and trigger the Soul Reaver passive. In addition, Soul Reaver triggers for each of Agni's ult giving him up to 7 times to trigger its passive on an enemy god where most other mages are limited to the standard 4 for each of their abilities. Together, these two items are utilized very well by Agni.

End Game Build
Build Section
Notes

In end game the two items that should be looked at are Chronos' Pendant and Rod of Tahuti. Which order you build them is dependent on the front line presence of the other team most of the time. If there is an aggressive tanky front line you should build Rod of Tahuti first for that extra burst. If not, Chronos' Pendant should be build first to offset the lost CD from the blessing and to really supplement the final build. Last item after the Elixir of Speed should be the other.
