Generally, Bloodthorn is a worthy upgrade for any hero that purchases an Orchid Malevolence. It is arguably better than Daedalus because it guarantees crits of 130% damage with True Strike for your team, silences, and a 30% magical damage aftermath while Daedalus grants only chances to deal crits of 225% damage.
Some would prefer to go for a Scythe of Vyse or to buy it in combination because many items can remove the debuff and the enemy can still run away or use a Blade Mail during the effect.
Remember that Bloodthorn's active gives guaranteed crits along with a silence. Targets may still be able to escape with Shadow Blade or Blink Dagger before you could damage them.
The ensured crits from Soul Rend work for all attacks done to the target. This includes attacks from wards, towers, fountains and even allies of the target.
Casting it on a tower diving enemy makes them take much more damage from the tower.
It is great when combined with Winter's Curse, because Soul Rend causes them to crit their cursed ally as mentioned.
