If you want brass for epic, then I would look at Forzo.
This was my take on this library, and honestly, it really doesn’t have powerful upper dynamics. There are a couple low patches that bite, but IMO it falls way more on the “useful for sound design” side. Actually my one Heavyocity Library that I regret buying.

If you want that instant blare sound, it's not the right library in my opinion.
Modern Scoring Brass shines when you write an arrangement that would also work when played by a real brass section.
But i wouldn't see it as a replacement for those typical Trailer-Braahm-Sounds.
Hey there Fossil. Thanks to you and to all others for your good input. Appreciated. We do indeed write arrangements as per real brass sections. So that is sort of a non issue. Just need something that can do fast bold symphonic stuff. (not meaning epic though - I guess I shouldn't have used the confusing term over the top. We don't do heavy trailers or Hans type stuff - which i enjoy, just not our sphere) I suppose am talking about, and more concerned about, the phrase shaping.

I don't think this library can even handle the nuances of pretty standard symphonic repertoire either. It's not good for epic, but it also isn't delicate or nuanced enough to actually capture the sort of energy that is expected out of the typical orchestral brass section.

Are you talking about MSB or Forzo at this point?

Wow you really seem to hate it. From what i have heard in this thread and from the two demos, it would appear to be able to everything other libraries can do and sound convincing whilst doing it.
I don't really agree but I guess it's all subjective. I wouldn't be as bothered if its retail price isn't going to be the same as berlin brass. I mean if I started by library collection all over I'd get a lot more mileage out of buying hollywood brass, CSB, and something else like one of the BB expansions or something considering just how expensive the library is!
