AP mid with new items

Whats a good build to go for as swain now, or any other typical mid? I am having trouble adjusting other than sticking to the former meta.

New items arent that great for AP mids, only Liandry's Torment and Twin Shadows make an impact, one for dealing with tanks/bruisers and the other one to detect and prevent ganks. Im building most of my AP champs like I used to before.

Alright thanks, was figuring the one that does the health % damage was probably worthwhile

Swain is stupid strong now with Liandrys (not that he wasn't before).

I've been going RoA - Liandrys - Rylais as core, boots when you feel comfortable fitting them in.

Start with lots of sustain (starting boots is kind of a waste now), rush that catalyst, and just farm and push your lane opponent around. Once you get Liandrys if your team hasn't been crushed in laning just start forcing teamfights everywhere and it's almost impossible for you to lose a 5v5.

I was melting my targets all game as Swain going

Boots 3 > Chalice > Sorc's > Haunting Guise > Deathcap > Liandry's > Rylai's > Zhonya's > Athene's

Opponent was Ziggs, if you don't need the mobility to dodge skillshots then you can start Doran's or Null Magic Mantle.

Everything's the same except if you have a slow in which case build Li in there somewhere.
