Kcmichalson says “[SUP] Swain has a large amount of crowd control aswell as a massive amount of sustain. He's going to be tricky to kill unless your carry is ahead, and if he catches you at a bad time you'll have to burn flash. Avoid getting hit by his E at long range as it will give him stacks. ”

veeixin says “Swain, Swain, Swain... Where do I begin? A tanky mage that has a pull, along with zoning potential. Well, first and foremost, keep your distance. I know you want to poke, but Swain is able to pull you in if you're caught off guard. My word of advice is to wait out his cooldowns, especially his pull, and then engage. Synergy with your ADC is especially key when it comes to battling this behemoth! If you can communicate and pull off a successful W + E combo, your ADC can follow up and deliver attacks.”

Tips Against Swain in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

sick204 says “Respect Swain's sustained damage and crowd control potential with his abilities, especially his Q and E. Use Yasuo's E to dodge Swain's abilities and minimize damage taken. Be cautious of Swain's passive, which heals him for a portion of the damage dealt by his abilities, allowing him to sustain in lane and win extended trades. Utilize W to block Swain's Q and E in trades and team fights to reduce his damage output and crowd control potential. Engage on Swain when his abilities are on cooldown or when he's low on mana, as he can be vulnerable during these times. Consider building items like Mercury's Treads or Quicksilver Sash to reduce the effectiveness of Swain's crowd control.”

otaliz says “Once you get in range, Swain can easily do his full combo on you, so bait his abilities and play on his cooldowns. Focus more on farming and look for roaming opportunities.”
michaliis says “Go Dorans Shield or Blade. Annoying but not so much. Its really okay and skill Match up.”

Laimaudeja says “[I would use the First Strike page in this lane, and start Amplifying Tome.] Swain's power in lane is very dependant on how well he can hit his root, so as long as you manage to dodge it well, you should be set. Keep in mind not to stand too close to minions as Swain will be able to hit minions with his root to enlargen the hitbox. ”

Fienny says “Free. Dodge backward E and roam. He has no mobiluity, take HoB and perma proc it with E + auto + auto and run and DODGE E”

ShokLoL says “Swain can depend a lot on the rune page he is running and what he builds. If Swain goes for an aery/scorch/chapter build he will be a lot stronger in lane than normal, but he will lack the scaling he normally has. Against this page you should still win but it might be closer than normal. If you’re against any other setup you should be able to build a pretty big lead in lane by abusing his long cooldowns and the range advantage that you have. Just focus on dodging his E. At level 6 if he ults just stun him and run away. ”

ShokLoL says “Swain can depend a lot on the rune page he is running and what he builds. If Swain goes for an aery/scorch/chapter build he will be a lot stronger in lane than normal, but he will lack the scaling he normally has. Against this page you should expect to go even or slightly ahead. If you’re against any other setup you should be able to build a pretty big lead in lane by abusing his long cooldowns and dodging his E. Post level 6 if he ults just hit him with a bubble and run away, once his ult times out he will be back to being very weak. ”

Swain does scale very well into you, but in teamfights you can either double chain him while his ult runs out or you can just focus on killing someone squishier. ”

awawa says “RUSH ANTI-HEAL Swain can be annoying. He becomes tanky so you won't kill him 1v1 late game. Get morellos ASAP so he can't heal. Don't stand in his W eye, dodge E root. When he's 6, save fear for when he decides to R.”

If you're against any other setup you should destroy him in lane by abusing his long cooldowns and dodging his E.”
