Harass him early but be careful for his 3-5
Harass her early care when she hits 6 if she gets the chance she will all it
Harass early don't him get near you or make him regret he's near you.
Careful very of his harass early will lose lane if he kills you pre-6 ask for gank if worried.
Harass him be careful of ganks
I am a top main and I see that swain is very strong and has little counter's to him in the current meta.
PS: this guide is a work on so I will work on it every once in a while after I gather more information and I think you feedback will help make me and other who see this guide become a Swain player (or not)
PSS: I am noob and don't know **** about making guides... better start somewhere
Fun Facts: My name is based off the song 1004 Angel by BAP.

I main Zed, Riven and Garen
Go 13/17/0 if you are worried about you lane opposition beating you. (not like to happen)
In offensive tree stop at Dangerous game and in defensive get points in Oppression, Resistance/Hardiness depending on lane opponent and Second Wind.
I'll explain why farming efficiently with Swain is so important. Since you got the master Feast you get one mana for every CS in you add int the fact that you have a now you gain 6 mana (5+1=6 :O) now add in the his passive he gains another
9mana + (1 x level) now lets say hes level 6 where he start to need mana for his ult
1+5+15= 21 now add in the fact that there is 6/7 cs per wave and you hit all the CS
You get around 126-147 mana per wave at level 6.
Note: at level 6 R the back line for one tic and then you can aa the rest of the creeps for easy gold and mana.
In team fight try to avoid getting focused instantly (hourglass here) and try to land you ability on squishy. If you land the combo it will probably one shot them. then the tanks shouldn't be that hard (if you have liandry's/ they didn't build a **** ton of MR)
