During the laning phase, what I see people do is stand in their own minions and let Morde harass them while also letting him charge up his shield to full. DO NOT DO THIS.
You are not laning against Ashe. If you stand in your creeps you WILL lose lane. You have to make him chose between two things:
- Harassing you only with his Siphon or
If He decides to Harass You
If he decides to harass you, then punish him hard for it. What people fail to realize is that at early levels, it hurts Mordekaiser to use his abilities, and his siphon deals little to no damage. For example, lets say you are
Anivia, laning against
Mordekaiser. You start off with boots and 3 pots, obviously, so that you can constantly reposition yourself in lane.
If he uses his siphon on you, he is damaging himself for more than his shield recharges, which is what most people fail to realize. So, after he uses his siphon to harass me as Anivia, I normally autoattack (ALWAYS autoattack Mordekaiser in lane whenever you can without missing last hits. If you get rid of his shield, then you will waste less of your burst)him once to get rid of his shield and then use flash frost on him, which deals 120 damage at level one (more with AP runes) as opposed to his measly 65 damage at level one. Also. counting the damage he dealt to himself and the autoattack damage that went through his shield, that's 170 Damage dealt to him
After getting the health advantage, which I cannot stress enough, USE it. Be aggressive, stand on his side of the minions. Deny him exp and farm. Stay in the offensive brush. Let him know that you are ALWAYS there and that you will not even let him get close to your minions. A Mordekaiser without his shield is a a squishy Morde.
If He Decides to Creep Farm
If Mordekaiser decides to creep farm, what I normally do is autoattack him in between last hitting minions and, when his shield is down, hit him with all I got. The trick here is to get his shield down and burst him/keep autoattack him if you are a ranged AD champ like
Corki. However, if you have enough balls, you can also stand on his side of the minions from the start if you are a ranged AD champion and punish him whenever he gets close. Of course, every time the minion wave arrives to your lane, get into the offensive brush so they do not target you.
Another important thing to do if you are seriously getting outplayed and are at half health whereas the enemy Mordekaiser is to not just let him keep pushing the minion wave hard. You have to try to push just as hard as him and keep the minions right in front of your tower. This applies to all lanes. If you keep letting that
Mordekaiser or that
Malzahar push the minions wave to your tower, then eventually its going to go down. What you have to do is keep autoattacking the minions while at the same time try to time the last hits accordingly. Good practice for this is going into a custom game and playing against three bots, making sure the third bot is Soroka bot, as she will push the minions hard.
The most important part of laning against Morde is to get those early hits in. If you can get a health advantage and use it, then you effectively won your lane already. Also, I don't care how low that Mordekaiser is. Unless you are 100% sure you can kill him without dying, DON'T dive him. Instead, keep denying him experience. If he keeps staying at his turret with no health, then eventually he'll lose more experience just afking at his tower than he would by going back and walking back to lane.
