This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing synergisticly with Gragas.

Is Brand better when played alongside Gragas?

There is no ideal champion pairing for Brand that will 100% of the time be his ideal ally. Yet, overall, Gragas is a very bad ally for Brand. By being on the same side as Brand, he drops their win rate by -4.0% to 47.8%. This shows that there is a very bad bond between Brand and Gragas that allows them to perform not as well together than without each other.

Gragas has a greater difficulty than Brand. That means you should be careful when lining up Gragas allies to fight alongside, as they will need a greater level of skill to be able to do well with you.

Working on the same side, you should expect to observe an overall large increase in your team’s capability to deal magical damage. Together, these two can deal quite a lot of AP type damage.

Although, by pairing Brand and Gragas together, you probably will not be granting your other teammates much attack damage. We recommend you include other champions on your team that nullifies this relative disparity in their potential.

Regardless of your Gragas ally's ability, you need to focus on increasing your income, outlasting your enemies, and taking down objectives. If you do this, you will do well anyway.
