Kinda new to League, but I have really taken to playing Brand, so I figured I would use him as my main. I am not bad with most other characters, but what I would really like to find are characters similar to Brand. I tried Ryze and he is pretty cool, This week I am giving Malzahar a try, and he is great! But really I just wanna build up on characters that play similarly to him so I can keep to that style of play.

I looked on the League boards, and all I could get on there was Anivia, Veigar, or Ahri. So basically if you all could give me some suggestions I would be really thankful.

you know my favorite is ziggs, absolute "blast" to play......

By what you said in the description you would want an Ap carry.
My advice is to try Lux. freaking OP as ****** **** .
you can also try:
Cassiopea
Oriana
Xerath
Syndra
Swain and
Zyra

Xerath has a pretty similar play style. Similar abilities and really bursty. Increbible poke, and if you play him right, you will be the most annoying mother ****** on the rift. Annie is also very similar. Work around combo stunning and AoE abilities. Zyra is pretty similar. If you want to get into assassin AP bursters, LeBlanc is virtually unstoppable with a lot of burst. Just make sure you build her with MPen because MR ***** her late game. I think you might like Lux. Make sure to proc her passive and your best friends are Lich Bane and Athene's Unholy Grail. Orianna and Syndra are both very fun to play, very bursty, and high skill level champions, but... when executed well have support abilities and high damage output. There are similarities in virtually ever AP Burster/Caster so you can really get into a lot of them if you like AP mid. Most champions take practice to get good at as well. Unless you want to go easy mode with Garen, Wukong, Master Yi, Akali, Tryndamere, etc. just play the game for fun and you'll eventually find more champs you enjoy.

CASSIOPEIA REAALLY OVERPOWER!
but hard to learn

1.9k elo mid player here, if u wanna stay with a mid champ thats also an ap caster id agree with ahri and veigar. also ziggs is a ton of fun and is beast mode when played right. and also karthus of course because his ult is broken as hell lol, and he will help you learn how to deal with mana issues early because his q is so spammable. hope i helped :P

Brand is a good choice for start but as many people said before don't go for only one lane champs. Try other lanes, bot with adc is lots of fun, shredding just with basics is just plain fun. For top or jungle try Jarvan IV, he is a great tableturner. For mid you can try Veigar who has an OP q with it's passive, 1 AP per creep, finish with at least 100 AP just from Q. Have a good time playing lol ^^

Bot adc? Why not Draven?
User avatar #25 - assdoreponyfucker ONLINE (01/30/2013) [-]
annie is kind of like brand, both have a stun and tons of burst, and fire. Only problem is with LOL there are no champions which you compare. if you like brand play brand. or try a different lane.
#12 - igotshunpo (01/30/2013) [+] (6 replies)
You really shouldnt play just "one-lane-champs"

Go soraka next time and dominate bot. Or Trundle and jungle. Or try ADC. OR take Riven and bruise top.
Get good with all roles.

Ahri is similar to Brand, but with more of an assassin bent. She's a lot of fun, and very strong, but hard to pick up, and her build is kind of counterintuitive.
User avatar #1 - joemeister (01/30/2013) [+] (1 reply)
Draven.
User avatar #40 - jempa (01/31/2013) [-]
Try zyra
Q= An area is hit by plant dealing damage/ if activated on seeds it causes the seed to grow and do damage to minions or champions
W= places plants that give vision for 30sec/ 2 seeds max.
E= Skill shoot that stunnes any enemy that is in the line/ if activated on seed it makes a plant that does same damage as Q but also slowes them down
R= large area is rooted by plants and deals damages as the roots extend and when they come back they do damage as well as pop them up in the air/ any plant that is in area of ult is turned into super plant

xerath if u can land the skill shots
User avatar #34 - Jesusnipples (01/31/2013) [-]
I love Brand, but when I wanna do some melee **** , I either go Tryndamere or Nocturne.
**** is so cash.
#33 - Ken M (01/31/2013) [-]
Brand, master yi, teemo, cho'gath and ashe, and **** the haters! <3

K first my experience so you know where this advice is coming from: 2k elo s2 currently 1850+ on two diff accounts. Sooooooooooooooooo let's go over what brand has: insane aoe burst, a stun, good wave clear, good harass. Some champs that are similar include: Ahri Anivia, Annie (not very good competitive), cass, lux, syndra, viktor. I'm sure there are others but those guys come to mind. If you want me to I can make a more in-depth explanation about how all these champs are similar to brand. just ask.

I main Orianna, and I could say her playstyle is pretty similiar to Brand. She also spams her abilities hard, she also farms verry fast using her spells, and if she ults you right, you have just a little chance of surviving.
User avatar #11 - splinfinity (01/30/2013) [-]
My main's Veigar, but from what I can tell the playstyle between Brand and Veigar is somewhat similar, as they both combo up and nuke, the major difference being that Brand is more able to spam his abilities. If people are still alive after Veigar attacks and he doesn't have his team with him, he's toast. The large-scale stun is really nice in teamfights though.

I'd also take a look at Ziggs. He's very spammy, with lots of wide-area spells and an ult that grows nearly global.
#8 - Ken M (01/30/2013) [-]
well, he doesn't play anything like brand, but I reccomend Swain for EVERYBODY
#7 - noobslaya (01/30/2013) [-]
Brand is one of my mains as well and is great fun to play. Have you tried playing Swain though? I've found him extremely entertaining and was designed by the same person that designed Brand (So they have some similarities in play style).
