ok i've been trying for sometime now to find a good and reliable counter to him.

and after some experimentation, i find that Blanc is prob the best, especially if you pick Ignite (to counter his Healing), and yes, i know that every one can get ignite!
simply because she can out damage him and silence him for a big BIG time.

anyone has another good counter pick for Swain?
he was always a trouble for me in mid.

Well, LeBlanc counters everything mid.

Mobile champions are generally good against him since trying to nevermove you will be a nightmare for him.

U can try to push hard since its difficult to cs pre 6 for swain. Morgana would do the trick.. And if you more of an aggressive player that's going for the kill, Cassiopeia or Brand are able to kill him early.

nothing wins against a smart swain, simply because he will dodge all your skillshots and hit you with e+q combo, even if he doesnt hit with his w
ignite doesnt kill swain it only halfs his healing but it is still there

Morgana, Kassadin, Fizz, Galio should all do great against him, but against what mid don't they? I've had some success with Katarina too because she has a built in grievious wounds debuff that she can cast from a range and she has the mobility to break his DoT and dodge his root. Not to mention that Swain doesn't have a hard cc against her ultimate.

Well, i don't think le blanc is a nice counter for Swain, cause he just need a bit of mr to not be nuked, and then he kills you. Have bigger range (as example, xerath or anivia) doesnt mean you will beat him. Actually i think that Galio can be a fair counter, cause galio will not never kill swain and swain still have free farm. The answer is: Cassiopeia. She broke Swain with her low cd and mobility.
