I think it's a little early to say Swain is irrelevant, no?

Well, about 100 years ago he was buffed to incredible power, and never nerfed. Also, about 100 years ago, every other hero was nerfed to the ground.

Seems like the consensus. I have YET to encounter him in a game.

No. Just cough up the $20 already. I can't win a game if I have Swain on my team

Yo, 2 days after Ezreal's release, he was considered underpowered because he had no CC.

Champions that are not straight forward or easy to pick up for most players take awhile to rise above "Hard to Place" or t4 on Elementz list. When a champion is as straight forward as Miss Fortune or Vladimir they drop right into t2/top of t3. Sometimes t1. Good thing it's only his opinion. Too bad most people miss that point.

Swain is irrelevant when you use a build that doesn't work, just like any other champion. Try this on Swain, and tell me he is a joke after.

Rush Rod of Ages
Sorc/Merc boots, depending on team.
Ryla
Spirit Visage
Will of the Ancients

You can also insert Chalice if you feel the need, although with mana per 5 runes and the right Masteries it isn't required.

You should sit a little over 3,000 HP, and have insane amounts of self heal from spell vamp on tomb and Spirit Visage.
