Yes Athene's a good item on him. He can use every stat that's on it.

^ Honestly that's more a QoL change focused on his laning phase, but still looks good regardless.

75 range on his Q also changes the order in which he can chain his abilities, and the slow is quite good. Not to mention, now he'll have the same range as other 500 range champions...

These things are quite big, especially the Decrepify range. But we'll see.

Ranged buffs and nerfs are the most substantial buffs/nerfs you can give a champion. This lets Swain poke with his E+Q at max range whereas right now you can only trade with his E and you have to move closer to the enemy to use your Q. This'll also set up an easier time to hit your W on someone with the slow. So this is way more than just a QoL change for his laning phase lol.

Athene's and ROA are must haves, build the rest tanky with the specific items depending on who your facing.
