I personally think Magebane would be more difficult for a new player compared to Hammerstorm. Hammerstorm doesn't require a lot of farm to make a good impact in lanes, ganks, team fights, etc., but Magebane requires farm to really do much besides blinking around and stealing a bit of mana here and there.

But its few examples i think all heroes... this difficulties are ok? i know about magebane... he needs much farm to make damages... but same like that he's a hero easy to play... not a hero effective... right?
Most carries are harder to play than supports/heros with solid stuns/nukes that dont need much aiming since they need a lot of farm and few deaths if they want to take over. You may think scout is easy to play with his ks ult + invis + crit, but he's easily countered by good players and without items he's fragile and doesn't hit too hard.
When i tried to teach my cousin to play, he really liked hammerstorm.
- The hero does not need farm to be effective (aoe stun and ulti) but still benefits from haveing a decent farm.
- He's not too squishy and has a high ms/armor with his buff so you're not guaranteed to feed if you have bad positioning.
- He's a good lane partner.
- He's usefull early-game, mid-game and late-game.
- In lower brackets, he can be effective at pretty much any role (ganker, support, initiator, carry).
- No skillshot, skills are simple and straight forward.
I'd rank hammer 1 or less, prolly easier than arma since noobs often forget to spam their spells and most definatly one of the most noob-friendly heroes in the game. Magebane is hard, he's super squishy and if you can't farm properly you will be useless all game and won't have a good time. Behemoth is pretty wasy to understant, but new players might have problem with mana management. Oh and fissure is a double hedged sword =p.
Hammerstorm is a great choice for the above reasons, I think tanky heroes with escapes (or strong stuns - like hammer/moraxes) are a great choice for beginners so Kraken/Cthuluphant are my suggestions. Whilst some carries (swiftblade, nh, emerald warden, moon queen, arachna, flint and draconis are extremely simple heroes - but need farm) and supports (pollywog/glacius) are very easy in essence; but problematic for new players as carrys require farm which is hard for new players and support requires positioning which is harder...
