Boots don't really work.

Good Swain players will just slow/torment you to wear you down with the DoT, and Swain has good sustain with his ult.

My only suggestion is play someone with good sustain and outlast him, or pick Kat if you're good with Shumpo. Swain is pretty mana intensive, so fight when his mana is low.

How to counter Swain on what level? In select, if someone picked Swain then they are probably going top lane so just grab a sustain and farm. If a Swain comes into your lane that you weren't expecting to be there then just farm and dodge his W. Buy early merc treads and sustain and farm. That's pretty much my answer to anything, though. Out farm whoever you're laning against and you should win. HUE

Ignite and silence are his main counters.

Swain needs to be in the middle of things to be effective as his ult is very short range. If the Swain isn't fed hard, you can ignite him and burst him down as a team.

In team fights unless focused down Swain doesn't really go down like other champions. His ult allows him to heal AOE damage while dishing out constant dps. He's also very mana hungry so if your team can deprive him from the blue buff that's another plus.
