Threats & Synergies
He has a strong early game because he can pressure with his hook (Q). Try to poke him down with conflagration (E) behind minions and don't get caught out. Eventually you'll outscale him.
When he hits level two play it safe and make sure to position against his hook (Q). You can outscale this guy after a few items. But watch out if he buys duskblade. Get Oracle lens.
A very annoying matchup, but possible. Avoid her root (Q) as much as possible especially when she gains her ultimate as she can one shot you. Use the brush as much as possible and try to outscale her.
With healing overall now nerfed, she isn't as annoying as she once was. Don't get too greedy though and make sure to still pick up Morello ASAP.
Not only is she mobile, but she also can shred you quickly with the right items if she catches you out. Play it safe when she reaches level 6 and keep an eye on her as much as possible.
With healing overall being nerfed, Yuumi isn't as much as a threat as she was in S10. Watch out for her ultimate however as it can be a death sentence if you get caught without your ultimate.
While his kit can be strong, its only as good as the player using it. If you're not careful and you get hooked, then he could kill you relatively quickly especially when he reaches level 6. Just watch out for his hooks (Q) and you should be okay against him.
While his mobility and kit seem intimidating at first, as long as you're aware of where he is and what he's up to then you should be fine. Don't stand in front of an ally minion/champion and keep blind spots warded. As a catcher, his ult can be the most dangerous thing in his kit so always be ready for it.
Champion Build Guide
+ He can deal a lot of damage to his foes in all laning phases
+ His range is great for poking down enemies and dealing damage with low trading as long as you position him correctly
+ Has a great choice of items depending on the match up
+ Can shred tanks relatively well
+ Has good defensive spells like his first ability, Sear (Q) and his ultimate, Pyroclasm (R).
- He is squishy (low defense)
- Is slow so positioning is crucial
- Relies on his allies to be on the frontline
- Can get easily outranged by artillery champions
- Has to predict and anticipate the enemy's moves to land his spells
Dark Harvest is still a pretty solid rune for Brand as it can activate from your passive and other DoTs as it can also deal a lot of damage.
