So, I have been playing Brand very often lately. I know Brand isn't a very common champion this season, but I really like building ap with him and going mid. I find myself low on mana early game. So lately I have been replacing the assumed start of Dorans Ring and 2 Health Pots by starting with Spellthief's edge and 3 Health Pots. I later upgrade this to Frost Queens Claim but the rest of the build is very conventional for Brand. However, many users have heavily critisized this chang in my starting build. I don't know why. How do you feel about this?

I really don't see any point in starting Spellthief in mid-lane.

I think atm Doran's Ring is the strongest starting item for AP Mid laners. Spellthief's Edge is a support item for a reason. It gives very little AP and no Health which means you are a lot weaker in lane and upgrading it into Frost Queen's Claim is just not worth it. If you are having trouble with mana you can try getting 2-3 Doran's Ring or build Chalice of Harmony as your 1st item. Or just be more careful with your mana.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
