While ganking, consider aiming Dredge Line at nearby terrain and following it up with Riptide for a higher hit rate.
Riptide has a delayed blast timing on activation - you can use this while running away or when enemies are incoming to serve as a deterrent.
Vision of Empire is quite difficult to land on its own, look for skirmishes around the map where enemies may be distracted or crowd controlled so you can land it more easily.
While laning, try to use Death's Hand's piercing damage to damage opponents from a safe distance.
If you're having trouble rooting an enemy with Nevermove, try throwing it at opponents when they are near their minions so the explosion surprises them.
Demonic Ascension may make Swain very hard to kill but he's pretty easy to get away from. Try building items that can slow opponents to keep them in range if their mobility is overwhelming.
