Just wanted to say this is false. Mace of Spades resets the swing timer. Good mordes melee hit then use Mace of Spades for the exta swing.
I play morde often, and the best way to counter him is to shut him down early. He beats people hard because he out levels and out itemizes a passive team. You need a bruizer top that can constantly harass morde when his shield is down. Also anyone with a silence, stun, taunt or knock-up will ruin his day. Any time not spent casting as morde is his downfall. QSS is your friend. It's better to 'waste' a slot on an Item that will save your life, than to build that cookie cutter build and feed.
