My plat elo friend thinks he's awesome.
The rest of them think it's a troll build, as do I.
But what do I know, is he or is he not?

Not really sure why anyone would build AD morde, all of his skills scale with AP and his passive is based on armor/MR. but then again you could probably build like a bruiser and get a nice tanky AD character

It would be okay, but tanky AP morde is still better.

Becuz it takes longer to charge up his shield becuz mordekaisers passive charges up 35% of the damage dealt by his spells, so how long will it take an AD carry to charge up his 630hp shield? It would take forever and make him less effective in lane.

I actually play AD Mordekaiser.

AD Mordekaiser works. Viable? Perhaps.

He shines the best in 3v3 Twisted Treeline. The reasons are:
-that nobody expects it, element of surprise.
-The scaling with AD on his Q is outstanding. After I get a Infinity edge or a Bloodthirster, my damage skyrockets, literally, my opponents just blowup from one ability.
-It's hard to build against an AD/AP burst champion. His spells deal magic damage and his autoattacks deal physical damage, so you would have to build both armor and magic resist to counter him, taking away from your damage output.
-Since its only 3 enemies, there is less crowd control, meaning Mordekaiser actually has a chance to get close to his enemies without being kited.

Downside to going AD Mordekaiser:
-all his skills scale with AP = His ult is weak
-Can't depend on W and E to build up shield as much. However, Once you land Q his shield is fully charged.

Pure AD Morde Build:
Sorcerer Boot's: You still deal MAGIC damage.
Hextech Gunblade: Everything you need, AD/AP, lifesteal, spellvamp, targeted slow to catch enemy champions.
Infinity Edge: Lots of AD, plus crit for maximum beotch-slapping.
BloodThirster: Lots of AD plus lifesteal
BloodThirster: "
BloodThirster: "

Other good items include:
Ionian boots
Nashor's tooth: AS/AP plus 25%cooldown
Trinity Force: Everything a good melee champ could use, tons of nifty bonus effects.
Warmog's or Frozen Mallet for extra health buffer.
Maw of Malmortis: AD plus AP-shield
Madreds: AD/AS plus % damage

Another build option is to actually stack Infinity blades. Crazy right? Nope.
Reason is, Pure AD plus crit, so if you stack 4 of these plus 1 Bloodthirster = 420 AD plus 20% lifesteal. One hit with Q does over 1000 damage. Then 250% damage on 100% crit Autoattacks.

Don't slam a build till you actually try it out.

AP Morde is a bruiser mage.

He does not benefit in any way from AD.
