Guide to Countering Azir as Brand

Tips for Playing as Brand against Azir

You can deter enemies from standing near their minions by setting them ablaze, due to Conflagration.

Pyroclasm bounces randomly between enemies, so try to cast it on a small group of enemies if you want to hit the same target multiple times.

You can use Brand's abilities in a variety of combinations to maximize his damage in different situations.

Advice to Win Against Azir

Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire.

Azir relies on his soldiers to deal damage and can only move them so often. Try to capitalize on windows of time when his soldiers are stationary.

Azir has immense damage over a prolonged amount of time but lacks the upfront burst of other mages. Try to burst him out before he can turn a confrontation around.
