Guide to Countering Sivir as Brand

Tips for Playing as Brand against Sivir

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 Sivir

Boomerang Blade costs a lot of mana to cast, so dodging it sets Sivir back. If it hits you on the way out, avoid its path on the way back.

Sivir is a powerful pushing champion, so leaving her unattended in a lane for too long will often result in your turrets being destroyed.

When laning against Sivir, it is possible to throw off the timing of her Spell Shield by faking an advance, then backing off.
