It's possible, but that doesnt mean it's the best option. Imo highly situational and you need good reasons to pick him.

Well sven carry isnt really popular in eu dota. Because he doesnt really need farm to be effective. as you said BKB + Mask is more then enough for him to do some damage. He really only needs a bkb. But he's also melee and really his skills tend to fit a ganker role better then a real carry.

He can gank a bit get some kills and before you know it without having to farm you have a BKB and you leave your carry to farm up the big items.

I tend to think of carry Sven on the same lines as a carry venge.

#4 i know what u mean there lots of heroes that benefit more from the farm, but why isn't him played then as a semi carry...fast farm bkb and mask and then let the farm to the carry..i mean a bkb+mask sven has a very big impact in a team fight if there is any other aoe stun, he does massive damage, idk i like him a lot in games, i find him good early game, good mid game and also good late game..
