It's obligatory to play this song always when chosing Swain...

The reason swain isnt played as much is because he suffers the same problems as a lot of other unviable mages, he is mid ranged with few ways to escape a bruiser jumping onto his face. That and his low burst high sustain damage makes him not that great for killing the enemies RADC which is one of the jobs of a mage

Except for his W...all his damage is DoT.

What's so funny?

Does he do good damage? Yes
Is it burst damage? No

You can't really count a 2 second DoT as a real DoT. That's kind of the beauty of playing as Swain. People assume that since he has "DoT"s that he's not going to burst you down quickly and so they don't play as cautiously as they should.

He snowballs as hard as any assassin would.
If he gets a 1 or 2 level advantage (cause of the E), and a slight gold advantage his DoT will start bursting you down..

I like swain if my team is even or ahead (obviously). He feels hard to utilize from behind than a longer range mage.

he has to be too close for his ult and typically gets blown up without the right team around him

Ignite makes him cry blood. He's a strong champ though. Does enough damage to matter, is just survivable enough to stay alive. Also he's a badass.
