Mordekaiser is a simple, easy to learn, and incredibly satisfing champion. When mordekaiser takes a lead he keeps it, killing anyone who tries to stop him. His simple E>Q>AA combo carries him through the whole game.
The primary rune set is listed below. Depending on who Mordekaiser's facing you will need to change your secondary path. For example against a poke champion you want revitalize instead of bone plating.

Flash is a must have for a no-mobility champ. Teleport is good for keeping a level lead, but against close or healing matchups bring ignite.
- Summs (Role 1)
This skill path maximizes the Q damage. E is the secondary ability to reduce its cooldown.
The standard E>Q>AA Combo will get Mordekaiser through most the game. It procs Mordekaiser's passive and gets them within AA range. With Rylai's they are slowed by his passive.
At lvl 1 use Mordekaisers Q to poke. Don't engage before lvl 2 or 3 depending on the matchup. In combat Mordekaiser's W should only be used when the bar is completely full, it has a long cooldown so using it prematurely can be the difference between winning and losing. Before lvl 6 Mordekaiser's easy to gank because lack of mobility; Make sure he maintains vision until he can solo their jungler with R. Despite the fact that max Q has a 4 second cooldown missing it in combat puts you at a huge disadvantage. Using Rylai's opens up many options for combat, with it Mordekaiser can keep melee champions out of AA range while dealing damage with your Q and passive. Cosmic drive with Rylai's prevents any champion from escaping, and melee champions from chasing. Even when getting 4v1'd, when Mordekaiser can't escape (which is most of the time) It's a better option to turn around and fight.
