Threats & Synergies
Gangplank can W to escape the death realm but other than that you shouldn't have much trouble into Gangplank.
Yone can E and escape the death realm as well as being very hard to lane against.
Skill matchup, Be sure to W before he R's you.
Once you hit six he can't run away and will die in the death realm.
Aatrox's early game is very bad so you can bully him.
Darius is OP, pay attention to bleed, remember to W.
Cho'gath can't R through your W. Cho'gath loses long trades.
Camille is very good at running away and that's about it.
Bully him before he has six and remember to stay behind minions so you don't get hit by his Q
Fiora's 1v1 is far better than Mordekaiser's, if you're even with her and she doesn't have R, you'll win the 1v1.
Gnar is annoying Ranged toplaner but if you can catch him with low rage you can kill him. Generally you want to play passive against Gnar.
Mordekaiser wins against Illaoi pre 6, if you time your R for when she R's and you win the fight.
as long as Irelia has stacks you're in trouble but if you can pull her into the death realm before she has a chance to get any you'll win the fight.
Jax has a weak early game . When you hit 6 you can prevent Jax from wardhopping away with R.
You're playing blind...?
Jayce is annoying but loses if you get too close to him.
Malphite loses hard early and won't be able to one shot you.
Maokai can wait out your R with his cc. He does alot of damage and will win most short trades, If you take an extended fight you will win.
Zone Nasus off of CS and punish him anytime he tries to get any.
Olaf will run you all the way to your turret with his q and can use his R to get out of Mordekaiser ult.
Ornn will win all short trades but loses hard in extended fights. You can R Ornns ult to completely remove it.
Poopy wins short trades but can't win extended fights.
Quinn is a major lane bully but will die if you can get in her face. Be wary of Quinns kiting.
Renekton has a very good 1v1 with gap close and cc, pay attention to his rage meter if you're trying to take trades. Only R him if you're very ahead or if you know he doesn't have R.
You win the fight in the realm as well as in extended trades but be wary of her execute.
by the time Kayle has scaled you'll have killed her six times.
Kennen's R really hurts and Kennen is very good at kiting.
You won't win short trades with Kled because of Skaarl but if you can get him in the realm while Skaarl is low, you'll kill him.
Make sure Sett doesn't hit the stun E and don't take auto trades.
Shen does alot of damage early but won't be able to out damage you when you hit 6. Be sure to interrupt his R with an E
if you get Singed in the realm you can kill him. Pay attention to your health bar as Singed can do alot of damage. DON'T CHASE SINGED WHILE HE'S GASSING.
Sion can't take extended trades and won't be able to run away with his R while in the realm. You can cancel his Q with an E.
Make sure to bully him pre 6. When Tryndamere hits six he can wait out your realm with his R and E away.
Urgot wins the 1v1 at almost every point in the game, his R will go through your W.
Volibear wins early but will only win the 1 v 1 in death realm if you ulted him while he was full hp.
Yorick loses super hard early but if Yorick has R up he will win the 1 v 1 in the realm. If the maiden of the mist is already out you can R Yorick and kill him.
Yasuo loses at all points of the laning phase. Yasuo's windwall is useless against Mordekaiser.
You're going to have to rely on E and Q to cs when laning into Vayne because she hurts alot with autos. If you can hit an e without her dodging it you can kill her with R.
Champion Build Guide
tips and tricks: Use W just before you take damage to mitigate much of it, such as when you're about to take a tower hit or Vayne is going to hit her third auto on you. (ONLY do this when you're not going to fight, you'll want to us it as a lifeline in a fight.)
If you're running away from someone, you can aim the E just in front of Mordekaiser and it will grab who ever is chasing you.
Items: I recommend protobelt because Mordekaiser is fairly slow (335 base move speed) sometimes you just need that little push to land the killing blow.
I recommend just buying haunting guise and not finishing Liandry's (until later) so you can get a rylais (if you're having trouble with champs getting away from you) or morellonomicon (so you can stop healing).
