Threats & Synergies
Dodge his Q's as best as you can, If you're out of his Q range, Always dodge forwards, He will probably E Q to try and reach you from a far, This lane can be over in seconds if you make mistakes, Play well and it should be a breeze. Use your W after 1st or 2rd Aatrox Q.
Annoying lane, Stay strong soldier, Don't tilt, just stay safe and farm, wait for your 6 or your jungler, If you dodge her charm, try to hit her with your E.
High mobility is the only problem here, You crush Akali because all your abilities are AOE. Play smart and its a breeze.
Dont E alistar, he will Q you and push you into the enemy team, Be careful with this, Dont mess with the bull or you get the horns. Other than that hes not problematic.
Tanky as hell, Deals a lot of true damage, Try not to fight him alone, There are probably teammates coming to help him! Other than that, hes not too problematic, a bit of CC and thats it.
Don't play against Anivia. Her Waveclear, Stuns and damage outscale yours, Her W will Keep you from sticking on her, If she uses W, Try for E when its gone.
Squishy, but deadly, She can oneshot you early on, She deals alot of dmg and tibbers will be in your way alot of the time, Shes immobile though so if you land a good E you should do good trading, or perhaps even get a kill.
E, Q, Auto. And shes gone. Care for ult. If youre playing ADC, Try to Rake her from behind minions, She will kite you so try to do short trades.
Skill matchup, He can stomp you but you can also stomp him, His R can get him away from you if you ulti or E him. He has alot of kiting ability so be careful, Play safe and wait for jungler.
Really annoying and tough lane. Play safe, Try to rake him with E then follow with Q, then back up. Dont go for long trades, he will destroy you. His ulti and is E, will screw you over, Ult him only if you know you can kill him or if he doesnt have ult.
Is annoying, but thats it, bard doesn't do much other than roaming and setting up ganks. Ward river, keep an eye on botlane.
If he hooks you, He dies. He has nothing to stop you, His ult and E aren't enough, His w will run out and then you can crush his metal plating.
Insanely tough matchup, he can stun you if you E him, and has insane damage. If you dodge Sear (Stun) You can go in for the kill, otherwise play safe. (Also counts in botlane, If hes support go for him instead of the ADC, he most likely deals more dmg)
Really good at keeping their teammates safe, But if you have Ult it doesnt matter, Play agressive in lane and try to harass him as much as you can. Be careful for gank setups.
Super long range, high damage, CC, slows and mobility, If you catch her with E, Q her and retreat, If her E is down, go for the kill, She can escape you in your ult, Play smart.
Skill matchup, Your ulti can cancel her Ulti, Let her ult first then you can follow to get out of the cage. Be careful for jungle setups, Other than that it should be a breeze, Dont do long trades.
Super tough lane, High damage high movespeed and kiting potential, After level 6 be careful, Shes still very squishy and killable, But be ready to sidestep her ultimate.
Easy kill early on, He will get tanky but dont be afraid, His flesh isnt made of iron, Be careful about his ULT it can catch you off guard, otherwise Go for long trades, Should be a breeze.
Mobile, and very powerful, Do short trades, if he goes in with W, ult him, or E him if its before 6. Very squishy but also very dangerous, Play smart.
Dont play against Darius. He will destroy you in lane, Everything you do just makes it easier for him, Just dodge! DODGE! WHAT ARE YOU DOIGN! Okay so you are here, The game is probably over. If you E him he will W you then E you when you think you are gonna live, And finish you off with ULT. His passive is stronger than yours, His heal is stronger. Just dodge.
Strong bursts, but suicidal champion. If she goes in on you, Q. Auto. then E, Ult if she goes on you. She has no escapes, Do longer trades against Diana.
(Tiny, as in Extremely boring) You probably wont kill this guy. Try to proc grasp as much as you can, Just farm and roam the map, After level 6 he will just ult and not care about you, Be careful his damage can catch you off guard.
Very fast, and very lethal. Draven is known for his insane DPS. Try to E him as he autos, to pull him away from his axe, If you sucessfully do this, go for the kill hes all yours, Be wary of his E, it can knock you back for a bit, but if hes in your ultimate it should be a breeze unless hes mega fed.
Annoying, But suicidal. Save your ult for when hes low, He will most likely Ult aswell, Save your E for when he does, He will go on you or E away , but he cant escape and 7 seconds should be enough to kill him.
Really dangerous, Play safe against her, Ward if you want to shove, NEVER. I REPEAT, NEVER ULT ELISE. Her E will sit for a long time and waste your time. Unless her E is down, DONT ULT HER. She also has some really strong burst. Hence you take death's dance to shield their burst (since its a bleed you can shield it and take basically no damage)
Annoying, Suicidal and invisible. She can escape your E, but not your ULT. Just smash her and show her whos Daddy. If she ganks shes trolling because then you just kill her first.
Annoying poke, Mobile and high DPS. Wait for him to E, or try to predict it. He has no escape after his E, so hes a squishy champ that takes a bonk and dies. Shove in lane and do other stuff.
This guy will make you rage, His Q will fear you for 2.5 seconds, his E will silence you for 1 second, He will most likely have Zhonyas, Thats 6.5 seconds of not being able to touch him. Lethal ganks depending on your laner/s. Ward and dont E him unless his CDS are down. You can use E tactically to move him away from your team.
Skill matchup, Depends on how good fiora is, Play safe early on, until first back dont fight too much, After that it depends on your skill. Good luck
E and Q are annoying, has a heavy slow, but he most likely wont kill you, Shove him in and poke him under tower, Feel free to E him whenever, if he uses E he has no escape. If he goes on you, Q behind yourself to predict his Q.
Good at keeping teammates safe, Has Built in MR, Be careful with Galio. He will be there to save your mate, Ult their teammate before he arrives to remove them and put his ult on cooldown.
He can W your ultimate, (It will be put on some CD) Has true dmg, Movespeed and insanely high damage. Play agressive earlygame, try to poke him as much as you can. Hes immobile so if he uses W, Ult him and finish him off
Read Darius. His Q will screw you over, he will win trades, and his ult can be deadly. Try for longer trades, Short trades only favor you if you dont use E. He can Q instantly after you E him so be wary.
Most annoying rat in the game, Good kiting abilities, Slows, CC and poke. Ult him while hes in mini, and he should be yours, Skill matchup otherwise. If he plays agressively back off. Do short trades.
Depends on how good he is, what hes building aswell. Otherwise it should be a breeze, Be wary when ulting him, He can R you away from him and waste your time with his E and Q
No problem, yes hes mobile and yes he deals alot of dmg, But land E, then R and finish him off with Q and grasp autos. Depends on skill.
Overpowered champ right now, Be careful he will run you down, He has a semi low cooldown escape. But other than that you should be able to take him on.
Annoying, But grab him with E, Q and then back off, use your W after his E or his W hits you. Just a patience matchup. Stay strong in your mental and wreck his buildings.
Breeze, You can remove her tentacles from the game by ulting her, If she ults you ult her back in return and show her whos in charge, If she E's you, E her while shes slamming it and return some damage to her.
Skill matchup, Irelia is insanely strong and has crazy outplay potential. Dodge her e, If she hits you with ult, Ult her to remove the walls and return the damage when she has nowhere to go. Dont do longer trades because of her passive.
Who even plays ivern anymore?? If hes in the game, Just be wary of ganks, keep your eye on your jungle and ward it, hes easily caught and very weak.
Janna. I hate Janna. She will save her teammate, She will push you away and she will never die unless you land your E on her, Followed by ult, Which would be a bad target to focus. If shes Pocketshielding, then go for her. Pocketshielding: Permashielding/healing their fed carry.
You can remove Cataclyst walls with your ult, Dodge his EQ and you're fine, He has no escape after engaging. Take his crown once more and show him that a lord takes what he will.
Skill matchup but i would Dodge. Jax is really strong if he gets ahead, he doesnt care much if you pull him in, After 6 he will annihilate you, Hes much more mobile and has high scalings. I would dodge but if you take on the challenge, do short E, Q Auto trades.
Skill matchup, Hes hard to stick onto because of his Melee E. Other than that he shouldnt be too much of a threat. Play smart, go for all the trades you want.
Highest damage autos in the game, Hard as hell to catch and can probably outkite you, Wait for his 4th shot, then ult him and while hes reloading smack his flimsy art.
High range, High damage, High movespeed (Sometimes) Hard to catch because of her E, but get infront of her and youre good. She cant escape your ult.
Broken champ, Be careful with her items, She will poke super hard and kite like a monster, Also her shield is insanely overpowered. Be wary when taking her on 1v1.
Annoying kiting, Thats it. She has one slow and has nothing else to offer, Alone shes weak so just abuse her and crush her.
Annoying, but no threat. She will Q, W and E constantly, but has no pressure on killing you, she can setup kills but thats it, Don't try catching her without ult, Her movespeed spam is too much.
Tiny threat, E him in and kill him. If he ults, Ult him if you have time, you will cancel his "Overworld" Ult and definitely kill him.
Play insanely agressive earlygame, If he makes it to level 16 the game is most likely over, Play smart and try your best to deny farm from him while poking and trading.
Skill matchup, But you can remove daggers from "Overworld" With your ult, If she jumps in, Ult her and kill her, she wont have an escape.
Skill matchup, Kayle has super high DPS, And kiting potential, But you can kill her if you play right, Trade alot and try to poke her low, Her mana costs are high so abuse that.
Mobile, very annoying and all over the place. His ult will waste your time, His q and his E will let him run from you. If he goes Darkin, Only ult him if hes really fed, to remove him from the game, Try your best not to die and play smart, Use Reverse Rake (E-ing in front of yourself to rake them backwards) If he goes shadow assasin, You have potential to kill him, but will still be a pest to deal with.
Skill matchup, Stay strong in mental, He will poke alot, and has good movespeed to dodge your spells. Read Fiddlesticks. Use your E to displace him when hes ulting, Unless he has Zhonya, Just ult him to remove his threat from your team.
XD, Crush the bug like the insect he is, stomp on him and watch him squish, Let him Q you once or twice then W, Dont use the heal but let the shield take another Q. He cant escape, Try to predict his R movement.
Jump jump jump, Splat. Remove her Ult from the game with your own ult, She has nothing to do without it, shes super squishy and if you catch her shes dead.
Skill matchup, Kled deals a ton of damage and is super annoying, Try to trade short trades with him, Use Reverse rake (E-ing infront of yourself to push enemies back) If he goes on you, Try to save your ult for when he dismounts. Then the kill is guaranteed.
No threat, Immobile, Squishy, and your shield will tank his barrage. Ult him and kill him, Very simple.
Too much mobility, Ult her and try your best to kill her, She will roam alot and be a massive burden to your team, Try to follow her and remove her threat from the game, Try E-ing to her W position if she panics you will kill her.
Skill matchup, He can kick you away from him, He is very mobile, but will lose long fights. Lategame he falls off really hard, Ward and play smart.
She goes on you and you return x4 the damage she got on you, Ult her if shes on your carry, then kill her. She has no escapes.
Aftershock lissandra is the meta right now, and i can't stress this enough, DODGE THIS GAME. Shes gonna stun you and slow you all the time, You wont catch her and she will waste your time if you ult her. Just dodge.
Skill matchup, Lucian is super mobile, has some really strong trades and poking, play smart, try to predict his E then CREK BLEK NEK
Ult this midget, remove her from the game and force her to ult herself, Dont let her carry the enemy with her stupid shields and ults. Good luck!
Annoying as hell, But immobile and squishy, Catch her with E if she goes for a cheeky q, Then crush her skull with your mace. She might go aftershock but thats no hassle, Feel free to ult her for free kills and gold.
Rock solid, well for atleast a few seconds. Be careful with his ult, Trade long trades in lane, Since you mainly use Q just click on him instead of trying to orbwalk when he uses E.
If he ults someone, Ult him (remove his passive first) To stop his tether and kill him, He has no mobility and without his ult hes nothing.
Read Mundo. Boring lane, You probably won't kill him, Just ignore him and farm. If hes on your carry, Reverse rake him away.
High dps, Will crush you in 1v1. Dont fight this guy alone, Only if hes going for your carry, waste his time and try your best to survive. Play agressive in lane, Yi doesnt have a good gank.

Shields are meh,
Champion Build Guide
His Q: Obliterate Is a Semi-short cooldown, Aoe slam, that deals extra damage to isolated targets, This will be your main damage ability, You can Q-Flash to catch opponents off guard.
His W: Indestructible Is a shield, that can turn into a heal, The heal is decent but the shield is what really makes this ability powerful, As i build Deaths Dance, i abuse the bleed to block bursts with my W, After taking a burst, W to block the bleed with your shield.
His E: Death's Grasp Is an ability similar to Swains E, Except it functions like blitzcranks hook, It will pull targets towards you, Or swipe them away from you depending on where you place it. If you cast it forwards like this it will pull enemies towards you, But if you cast it behind you, it will do a "Reverse rake" as i call it, and shove enemies back if they are chasing you.
His R: Realm of death Can be used for so many things, Dodging attacks, Removing threats, And focusing strong targets, Read Matchups for an indepth of all the uses i have found so far.
His Passive: Darkness rise Is an aura that procs after 3 Abilities, Autos or Both mixed on either Large monsters or champions Will work as the Pre-rework morde's W when he was in connection range, An aura around you will deal damage scaling with % Health, also granting you A decent movespeed buff.
Read the notes for most of the information
Liandrys: Good item in general for champs with low CD base spells (Q) Does well with his Passive aswell.
Morello: For healing reduction if enemy has, Warwick, Xin, Soraka Etc
Spirit visage: For MR and healing increase, very good item.
Gunblade: Its okay, but id still take DD over it.
Nashors: Also good, but i dont feel like morde relies on autos.
Randuins: Against heavy crit comps, Yasuo, Adcs etc.
Sunfire, If against heavy AD and you have a tank-ish engage teammate. (Still good without)
Hydra: Insane waveclear, auto reset, good scaling with Grasp and Overgrowth.
Witts: Good healing and much stronger autos.
ZZ: Good if you want to end quickly and you are ahead.
Thornmail: Read Morello. (Against AD comps)
Ohmwrecker: If you feel like diving for days.
BORK: Good autos, strong active, % health scaling.
AH: Good against AP comps who spam spells, Syndra, Kata, Ziggs etc.
Banshee: Good against heavy CC comps.
Mercs: For comps with alot of CC.
Tabis: For comps with alot of Auto attackers, Or AD.
Sorcs: If you want to deal alot of dmg, or if you are ahead.
I wouldnt recommend other boots.
Morde deals crazy high damage in the mid to lategame, his scalings are bonkers and can really dish out some heavy damage.
He has a lot of AOE damage, Q, E and Passive.
Singular target lockdown, That can be used to dodge a large amount of things ( See Matchup guides)
Decent Sustain, Great shove and good trading.
Very kitable if you miss E.
Easily caught, No real escape, Immobile.
In the mid game your goal is to push your second turret on top, mid or bot, then roam the map and pick kills, and by the kills you can do objectives like towers, dragons or maybe even herald. Try your best to help your team and get a lead going for your side of the map.
In the lategame your goal is pretty much the same as midgame, except you should be more careful when trying to pick off opponents, especially if you are the fed member on your team, if you fail you're letting your teammates die, try your best not to die in the lategame. Try your best not to die in general.
"The world has tried to forget my existence, time to remind them why they fear."
I play mordekaiser for his utility, his map pressure and the large amount of damage he can output in a short moment, As most of the "New" champions they all have some crazy high damage or some stupid ability that makes you rage in chat and want to quit, Morde has both, His ult is a rage machine and his damage is beyond imagination.
His kit is super versatile and can be used in so many situations for so many different things, his e can Pull, his e can shove, His ult can cage, his ult can dodge certain abilities, or remove certain abilites (For you) from the map.
Hes a superb teamfighter because he can remove a massive threat from your team, obviously you are gonna be gone aswell, but being able to remove a fed carry from your teams shoulders is a great relief, His ability to shove is also incredible, his roaming is not the best but his kit really makes up for it. He has a decent laning phase and some good trading power.
I love playing the new mordekaiser and i feel like riot really did a good job on this one, He is getting nerfed Sadly but i understand, I also didn't have a good time playing against him for the first time. But i hope they can balance him and put him in a good spot, hopefully we will see him in the pro scene someday.
Rest in peace, My dear love, Pre-rework Mordekaiser. 2010-2019, almost 10 Long years of shredding heavy metal.
Red: Priority wards, these can be used if you are ahead and you know you can catch the enemy jungler if he does appear on the spots, you know you can kill him, and still stay alive after doing so.
Green: Normal wards, for when you are equal in lane, and just wanna make sure you dont want to get ganked, also very useful for general vision and securing that the enemies aren't taking objectives in the lategame (Pixelbush wards)
Orange: Situational, Depending on the enemies teamcomp, and how your teammates are doing, Is your jungler struggling? Pop a ward in your own jungle and roam down to help him if hes in a pinch, For botlane, the situational wards are for when you play ADC. The tribush on your side if you're equal, The tribush on enemy site if you wanna try and catch the enemy jungler at their gromp.
Lethal Tempo: Read PTA.
Fleet: I sometimes use this, its good for sustain and a tiny burst of movespeed, but used mostly for the sustain and the access to the presicion page.
Conq: The most common rune for mordekaiser players, the rune is overloaded and gives a ton of benefits, read my conq runepage for further information.
Electrocute: This is what i currently use the most, i like the all around damage it gives, and the access to doing some harsher bursts and trades in lane, overall a solid rune for mordekaiser IMO.
Predator: Not viable, maybe in the jungle, otherwise a waste of runes.
DH: I can see it being used, i haven't tried it myself yet, but i assume that you can get a stack everytime you ult which seems pretty good, but there are much more solid picks.
HOB: Read PTA, Lethal tempo.
Aery: Not the best, i tried it and it didnt perform as well as some other runes, it can definitely still be used in tough matchups just to get some extra poke in.
Comet: Just no, Your E pulls the target away from the comet, and your Q is way up close to make an impact.
Phase rush: Solid rune for sticking onto enemies, i sometimes use this aswell, overall a good rune for matchups with mobile or annoying champions.
Grasp: This was my goto rune before electrocute, its very solid and gives you a bunch of extra stats combined with the rest of the resolve tree, It usually amounts to 300~ Extra HP per game which is very gold efficient. Read further on my Grasp page.
Aftershock: Situational, i can see it work as a Cliche mage aftershock pick, this does require you to hit your E though, or else youre wasting a rune.
Guardian: Maybe for support mordekaiser, otherwise no, Cant see a situation where this outmatches any other runes.
Glacial: Can work, can be super annoying to play against, but with mordekaisers kit he really doesnt need the slow as he already has enough to stay on an enemy, and Phase rush is better.
Klepto: Matchup dependant, If you can get close and get autos for free, go for it, otherwise take something else.
Spellbook: Depends on your playstyle, can be good if used correct, but other runes are more viable.
