Hero Strategy

Get Urn of Shadows as soon as possible as it allows you snowball off of first kill. Soul Release activates Cinder Brew.

Ask your laning partner to activate Cinder Brew if you can't yourself.

Make sure to cyclone an important target at least twice during Primal Split.

Don't forget that Storm Panda has AoE dispel which can remove certain spells, runes and damage basic illusions.

The Earth Panda carries all the auras and AoE effects like Radiance or Cloak of Flames.

Look to use your aura items like Crimson Guard and Pipe before Primal Split. But beware of your mana pool.

Counter Strategy

Try to lock down or silence Brewmaster and kill him before he splits.

Don't fight Brewmaster's Primal Split unless you have damage to kill all the Brewlings.

Storm Brewling's Dispel Magic is an AOE basic dispel. So, avoid purchasing dispellable items.

Black King Bar is amazing against all of the crowd control Brewmaster has.
