Chapter Title

Get soul ring first since you're pretty tanky and you'll need a lot of mana for your first skill to farm or harass. You're one of the best carries in the game so if you get a good start then you'll be dominating in the mid and late game.

Chapter Title

You have to get treads for mid game, but its up to you whether you should get Hand of Midas or not because if you couldn't really last hit during early game then just skip it and go for Mask of Madness. You definitely will need to farm your BKB then you'll be unstoppable with your cleave and 200% extra damage. If the enemies are smart they definitely will make their tank get Blademail and spike back all the damage that you're dealing.

Chapter Title

If the game still isn't over yet then Daedalus would be a really good item if you're farmed. You'll then crit around 500-1.5k along with your ulti. If there are annoying heroes like tinker, brewmaster, phantom assasin, or void the you should go for MKB because they won't be able to dodge any of the damage. If there are range heroes fighting behind the tankers, they will still probably die because the cleave on Sven is just really strong. If there are annoying range carries and they're pretty tanky, you should probably go for battlefury because that will make them take more damage.
