Swain's ultimate is a healing
effect, not spellvamp, so Spirit Visage does affect it. Generally, you will notice that effects that interact with Spirit Visage use the word "heal", while anything that's lifesteal or spellvamp will say so explicitly (See Morgana, Nasus, or Akali's passives, or Olaf's Vicious Strikes, compared to Warwick or Xin Zhao's passives.) This is actually why Vladimir's Transfusion and Sanguine Pool are healing effects, so that they synergize with Spirit Visage and the buff he gets from casting Tides of Blood.
