Mordresh is your biggest payoff card for running Hero Power support in Forged in the Barrens. Given that his condition is met, his Battlecry will more than likely clear your opponent's board, effectively LegacyPyroblast their hero, and leave behind a threatening 8/8 body afterwards.

In Standard play, your main tools for enabling Mordresh are Forged in the BarrensWildfire and Forged in the BarrensReckless Apprentice. The former effectively halves the number of times you need to use your Hero Power, and the latter can rack up damage quickly with a single card (assuming your opponent has a board). Used in tandem, these cards can very easily meet Mordresh's requirement. The Grand TournamentFallen Hero and The Grand TournamentColdarra Drake are also options, albeit less reliable ones.

In Wild, Mordresh can be used with The WitchwoodGenn Greymane in Even Mage, and he is the main power play in some versions of this deck (note that Forged in the BarrensReckless Apprentice is also even-costed). Variants of Hero Power Mage that don't run The WitchwoodGenn Greymane or The WitchwoodBaku the Mooneater have the full repertoire of support cards at their disposal, including Rastakhan's RumbleJan'alai, the Dragonhawk and Forged in the BarrensWildfire, which also has a powerful effect for a similar condition. (While this archetype is fun, know that Wild's high power level means that these decks are nowhere near a match for top-tier decks in that format.)

Through necromantic magic Forged in the BarrensDeath Speaker Blackthorn was able to rekindle the flames of Mordresh Fire Eye's soul, returning him to undeath. As a former shaman, Mordresh has exerted his twisted control over the elements. He burns and scorches all those who threaten the Death Speaker's work.
