get your jungle to gank mid, or if its ranked dont pick brand :3
I play in normals ^^
My friend who plays solotop and (sometimes, when duo queue demands, mid) wondered the same thing, though I think he was playing swain.
However, null magic + pots didn't seem to be enough.
Then we saw a pro game with the same matchup, swain vs LB. I can't remember who the swain was (can't remember the guy's name... or team, but it's on the tip of my tongue), reginald was the LB
Swain went 8 potions opener.
It worked just fine, as he had enough potions to survive to level 4-5ish, then a lot of leblanc's damage was falling off. not sure if it'll do the same on brand, but it's worth a shot.
If your playing in normal, then its just about been better, leblanc is considered to "beat" brand, but if you out class that player alot then you will win, however if its even, the fact of the matter is, you probably cant win 1 on 1, so all you need to do is sit back last hit minions and do what you do in team fights. Also remember you can poke her with attacks , if she cant counter you then you can build up a higher current hp then her and possibly burst her down at some point.
Play passive, and understand that if she does not kill you, you won the lane.
Before level 6:
Take advantage of her horrible last hitting and push your lane to infinity. She will lose 50% of her cs if your creeps get anywhere near her tower. She cant WQE you in a pushed lane. Just be careful and dont get ganked.
After level 6:
Buy a Negatron (turn it into Abyssal Scepter later on) and turtle near your tower :P Never try to 1v1 her unless you're sure she wont kill you in 1 combo.
Feel free to PM me about any question you might have regarding LoL.
Tanky AP champs counter her, Brand isn't one of them
However even if she out CS you, you are the winner of the lane if she does not kill you because Brand late game >>>>> LeBlanc
LeBlanc from early to late game excel at 1v1, make it 5v5 she falls badly, Brand on reverse make it 5v5 and you shine much more
Do NOT try to outharras her with Brand, you won't, play very safe and passive, 99% of good LeBlanc will start to gank top/bot if you play safe so also warn of any mia, Blanc falls if she doesn't get kills, not only you (I did that mistake before, safe play but not announcing every mia so she ganked bot and top a lot and get fed)
she doesn't fall off that badly as everyone pretends to. Just watch reginald play her. Not that great for 5on5s but awesome to snipe someone who overextended, making the following fight a 5vs4 => job done.
Concerning the swain with max pots at the beginning: That was pre pots nerf in tournament play. TSM against no idea who
I've seen many lbs starting with dorans lately => harrass her early and win the lane. Especially at level1 she can't procc her silence yet so it's the best moment to harrass. Sometimes you can just see when she's going to jump near you and q r. Try to preemptively cast your pillar + q on that spot. Done right she'll get stunned right there. If you're lucky you'll avoid the damage, if not you returned some damage at least.
Beat LeBlanc? Get up close, hopefully have a minion in between you two.
Get a Banshee's Veil, will totally screw her up.
Burst her down QUICKLY while her Q or R is on cooldown.
And then she breaks idol with a 4 second cooldown ranged attack that can't miss.
And if you use your QR on Galio you already lost the teamfight most likely cause you have no damage for the next 4 or so seconds, and cannot do your full combo for like 10 seconds.
