Just wanted to get a few Pro's and Con's and a legitimate comparison of the two. Currently trying to decide which I would prefer to buy next.

Brand's going to have more upfront burst, but Anivia has a lot more utility from an AoE slow and her wall. Anivia may indeed be more useful in a team if you play smart and know where and when to drop her ulti, but brand has her beat in the laning phase from superior range.

Whoever starts Boots+3 wins the lane.

Both are super mana hungry and have decent range, although brand wins out till anivia gets to 6.
Anivia is better in team fights IMO.

Anivia basically requires blue buff until lategame. Brand is easier to master. Anivia has amazing burst if you can get good with her.

Um, yes. If you plan to harass the enemy in lane a decent amount or use skills to farm you will be OOM fairly quickly.

Use skills to farm (besides Q) = push the lane, get ganked by enemy jungler.

Brand has mad burst damage and will outlane anivia, but anivia is very useful in teamfights

I'm not talking about spamming skills on creeps all day. If you use skills to farm and harass you will be chewing up a lot of mana quickly.

This is why brand needs blue so much.
Downvote all you want, it doesn't make it not true.
