I'm surprised that no one is talking about on-hit effect items. His ghosts apply on-hit effects, which means that Bloodrazors/Rageblade/Frozen Mallet/Malady/Wit's End are all good choices on him. He doesn't really get any kind of returns off of AP, so I don't really see him stacking AP items.

Considering how awesome he farms and how poor he scales, I'd say that he is a competent aura-monkey, as well. Aegis/Starks/Abyssal scepter, run around with your team. Do the ghosts benefit from team auras?

I don't have Morty yet, but I think I'm going to try the following (separated for different trips to town):

Doran's Shield + Health Pot
boots of speed + Vampiric scepter
Phage
Mercury Treads + Madred's Razors
Giant's Belt => Frozen Mallet
Bow + Pickaxe => Madred's Bloodrazors
Get as far into Guardian Angel as the game allows, and maybe upgrade the scepter to a bloodthirster.

Two powerful on-attack effects, CC, +820 Health/+101 armor/+68 Magic Resist, and a free raise to keep you in the fight long enough to get a ghost. I need another 600-odd IP before I get to check this stuff out, though.

Mordekaiser might not be as **** as everyone initially thought.

Rylai's is only tolerable because it gives him a ranged slow, and even then I'm not totally convinced that it's better than a Frozen Mallet (mainly due to the fact that his ghost can apparently apply its slow).

And why Sunfire Capes? He isn't Rammus or Malphite; he has no reliable way to get close to people and no reliable way to keep them nearby if he does. Relying on a small, point-blank AoE seems like a bad idea.
AP is merely a plus, not to mention it works quite well with his ult. However, I primarily get Rylai's BECAUSE it allows me to "have a reliable way to get close". The range on his Siphon is huge and it is fairly spammable. As a tank I need to have a reason for them to target it me first, and if I can snare it adds a world of difference.
