Guide to Countering Brand as Mordekaiser

Tips for Playing as Mordekaiser against Brand

Offense is your defense. Keep fighting to build up larger Indestructible shields.

Use Realm of Death on a low health enemy to guarantee the kill and keep their stats for the rest of a teamfight.

Hitting multiple champions with the same ability can help quickly activate Darkness Rise.

Advice to Win Against Brand

Try to move away from allies when you see Pyroclasm being cast. The initial missile speed is slow, which should give your team time to react.

Brand must land an ability before his combo is able to get started. Dodging his Sear or Pillar of Flame will disrupt his rhythm.

Brand's passive allows him to excel against teams that cluster together. Be sure to split up against him.
