Champions that need mana regen (and cooldown reduction) more than max mana would rather have Athenes. For example, Lux wants mana regen and cdr so she can spam her abilities as much as possible. Singed is not interested in spamming anything besides poison trail, which has a low manacost. He is better off having a high mana pool that allows him to leave poison trail on longer.

The two should sound like pretty much teh same thing, since having more mana regen and having more mana both allow you to cast more spells. Besides teh difference between sustained casting and burst casting, the other key point is the other effects the items give you. Chalice gives you high mana regen right away, Tear takes a while to build up. Athenes gives CDR and Mres, Seraph gives more AP and that nifty shield. Lux doesn't really care about the shield because ideally she is in the back line being artillery. For someone like Ryze, having a 750 EHP shield on top of his high armor and mres from building tanky mana items ON TOP of his built in spell vamp makes this item look really really attractive.

It just comes down to what each champion wants most from their items.

Yep, rush Tear of goddess into Arch Staff, then Rod of Ages and then standard build after that.

She's a few cards short of a full deck: a joker in the game, ooh.
She's got a bullet with your name on it - no doubt she's a mental case.
