I'll start, Swain as an AD Carry. Try and follow this kind of a format if you would like to contribute.

Why does this work?
He works for an extremely aggressive lane.
1. The main ability that enables this to work is his Torment which grants himself damage amplification.
2. He has built in mana gain in his passive Carrion Renewal, this allows him to last hit and then keep the aggressive play going.
3. He has good CC in his Decrepify and nevermore which enables you to keep hitting while your Torment is still up.
4. His ultimate adds addition life gain back on top of any lifesteal items you may get, so Spirit Visage still applies.

Potential weaknesses:
1. Short range
2. reliant on CC to be able to keep his attacks going
3. very centered on single target damage, so susceptible to enemy CC reducing possible damage

Trust me, ^ That doesn't work xD

Try AD Lux instead, she actually wins lane phase at least and has range. 8D

Max her shield first, it's dumb for trading in lane.

Yeah my team mate went 8-1 with AD swain in lane and was 100% useless the rest of the game.

And I use AD Lux in smurf games often.

Yeah this is no joke.

Zekent does it as well from time to time.

I've been saying LB is a beast support in the right lanes for ages.

I've had the opposite effect, probably because I tried it on a smurf though. He's team reliant with CC.

Suddenly his base scaling for AS and attack rang and animation don't suck? >:P

(His AA is awful.)

Lux's is bad, but not nearly as bad as his.

Another fun one is AD Brand. He also crushes lane phase.

Was trying to say that his damage amplification kind of makes up for it, as does the fact that he brings CC to the table (both soft and hard).
