Disagree, Mjollner can cast 2-3x as many spells (2x with a support gem, 3x without) and has ridiculously more HP than Fakener.A good fakener can be as good as a Mjolner build, due to not having to invest so much into str and int.
Low max HP possibility was my main problem with my Fakener. The crit gear you basically have to use in order to function just does NOT have HP on it. (Maligaro's, Rat's Nest). Not to mention the significant base HP from all that strength you have to stack on Mjolner.
Also Lightning/Molten strike are ridiculously more fun to use than cyclone as far as triggering attacks go, and Vaal Lightning Strike is the greatest thing ever for Mjolner.
My eventual goal now is to save up to get a Voll's Devotion amulet and a Kingsguard chest - Fakener cannot use that chest, and the combo of the two means INSANE healing output.
