Mordekaiser vs Alistar the best tank?

Mord is a pretty subpar hero at the moment...

Morde is the best tank in the game.

IMO Mordedaiser is best used as a support tank pusher. Sort of like a tank nasus build.

Neither are true tanks, but they can push, soak up damage, and dish out damage.

well considering that Mord has zero CC he cannot be a tank. He is lumped into the semi tank/dps category with Nassus but Nassus has some CC, he has great debuffs, and his ult is amazing for group fights.... mord not so much.

hands down Alister is the better "Tank" heals, + stuns, and a resistances buff.

Mord brings nothing to the team and thus is useless.

Mord is a pusher. He is awesome at killing creep waves and tanking towers.

@Dogtoy: Nassus does the same job just as well, if not better, and also is actually able to contribute a lot on team fights. Every time I played Mord last night it was fun but I felt like I was playing a neutered version of Nassus. =/

Mord really doesn't even compare to Alistar when it comes to tanking. Alistar can wade in, discrupt the entire enemy team, knock someone into killing range, and still wade right back out without dying. Not to mention his laning and tower pushing capabilities because of his insane heal spam.

I would not consider Mordekaiser to be a tank at all. The job of the tank is to either draw a
disproportionately large amount of fire away from your teammates or do disrupt the enemy enough that it becomes easier for your teammates to do their jobs without dying. Alistar is quite good at the latter. Mordekaiser can't do either. The fact that you can build him for high survivability is inconsequential.

Mordekaiser is a carry. His job is to summon the ghost of the enemy's carry and do damage damage damage. It may be that he needs some mitigation items to ensure that he won't be focused down before the ghost goes to work, but that doesn't make him a tank. It makes him a carry who's immune to focus fire, but shows up late to every fight.


^this. Mordekaiser is pure offense. Pure tank builds on him is fail. It's either AP or melee.
