I played a ranked a while ago with Morde (pre-semi-nerf-reversal) and I got mid vs a Caitlin. I dominated her. We both had ~200CS by 23 minutes, but I walked away with 3 kills on her to her 1 on me.

Pros (for ranked): Good farmer, great damage late game, great ganker due to flash/ult/ignite, scales well throughout the game.

Cons (for ranked): RARELY gets to be mid, which he needs to be useful. For some reason a lot of people consider Morde not an AP caster, and more of a top solo. Morde does not do well against champions with sustain, as to do damage, he hurts himself until you get spell vamp.

I love Morde, even when nerfed, and consider him to be one of the strongest Utility/Damage casters in the game.

As far as being viable in ranked, he is not
You can get wins with him sure
but higher you go, the less viable he becomes
and the poster above me said he is a great ganker....... what???
he is one of the worst gankers
no CC AT ALL
you just burned your two summoner spells and your ult to gank?
good gankers like lee sin or shaco dont even need their summoner spells and ult

My apologies pornstar, but ok, not the best ganker. But you know what? you get a 30 sec AD carry ghost ganking bottom lane by popping everything... it becomes a 4v1 bot....free tower.
