General Play Style:

Mordekaiser is a powerful top-lane champion who excels in 1v1 duels thanks to his ultimate, Realm of Death. In the early game, focus on farming and poking the enemy with your Q and E. Once you hit level 6 and get your ultimate, you can start looking for all-ins.

In the mid to late game, look to split push when your Teleport and ultimate are up. In team fights, use your ultimate on key targets to isolate and eliminate them. Remember to use your W to absorb damage and your E to pull enemies towards you.

Your item build provides a mix of damage and survivability. Iceborn Gauntlet gives you armor and cooldown reduction, Abyssal Mask provides magic resist and increased magic damage, Cosmic Drive gives ability power and movement speed, Shadowflame provides magic penetration and ability power, and Rabadon's Deathcap significantly increases your ability power.

How to play Mordekaiser in the early Game:

In the early game, focus on farming and poking the enemy with your Q and E. Use your W to absorb damage and heal yourself. If the enemy engages, you can fight back with your full combo. Once you hit level 6 and get your ultimate, you can start looking for all-ins.

How to play Mordekaiser in the Mid Game:

In the mid game, you should be looking to split push and join team fights with your Teleport. Use your ultimate to isolate key targets in team fights. Remember to keep farming to complete your item build.

How to play Mordekaiser in the late Game:

In the late game, continue to split push and join team fights with your Teleport. You should be very strong at this point and can look to carry team fights with your damage and survivability.

How to Teamfight with Mordekaiser:

In team fights, use your ultimate on key targets to isolate and eliminate them. Use your Q and E to deal damage and your W to absorb damage and heal yourself. Positioning is key in team fights as Mordekaiser is not very mobile.

Dragon and Baron Objective:

For the Dragon and Baron objectives, try to have your ultimate available. You can use your ultimate to isolate the enemy jungler and prevent them from smiting the objective. Remember to ward the area around the objective and call for your team to help.

Matchups:

Good matchups for Mordekaiser are melee champions that he can poke and trade with in the early game.

Bad matchups / Counters include ranged champions and champions with strong early game damage. E.g. Quinn, Jayce, Aatrox, Fiora, Dr. Mundo, Riven, Akali, Olaf etc..

Alright, as Mordekaiser, think of yourself as a heavy metal rockstar, not a TikTok dancer. You won't be busting out any viral dance moves, so make sure you're in the right place at the right time. Use your abilities like you're playing a wicked guitar solo, and you'll be sending your enemies to the shadow realm faster than they can say "GG"!!
