In a close battle I give it to Dr.Fate.

This battle is far from close.

From the OHOTMU,

"Baron Mordo is a powerful sorcerer motivated by ambition and megalomania. Though he is among the ten most powerful Earth-born sorcerers alive today, his power pales beside that of Earth's sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange."

Dr fate would slaughter him.

I thought Mordo was stronger than that... he was in the past at least

Planning and prep make any sorcerers more powerful or dangerous as they can prep spells ahead of time.

That's when he was powered by Dormammu.

Far be it for me to bother arguing with the handbook but in my personal experience with him, Baron Mordo's power never seemed to "pale" in comparison to Strange's.  He wasn't as powerful but he was right up there.

Granted, I'm not a big enough Dr. Fate or Dr. Strange fan to really know if they're on the same level but I'm just saying.  It's not like Strange hands Mordo's tail to him when they fight.

A better match-up for Dr. Fate would be Dr. Strange.

That would just be a stalemate. Those guys are walking plot devices.

How long was he powered by Dormammu?

Is there a reason why he wouldn't be here?

I remember at least 1 length plot where he was a henchman of Dormammu.
