    I or me?

    Dear, teacher I want to know what I need to use in this sentence.

    I know I is subjective, and me is objective, also prep.+me
    So it would normally be for me.

    1.You are no matched for I, the leader of my clan.
    2.You are no matched for I, who is the leader of my clan.

    I'm wondering if I would be acceptable in this case.

    Re: I or me?

    "For" is a preposition and takes the object.

    You are no match for me.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: I or me?

    Thank you! I saw so people use many sentences with For I who___ . So I was a little bit confused because it's after preposition but also followed by a relative pronoun.
    Like He who___ so I wasn't sure if it should be objective in this case.

    If you remove the comma it can work.

    You're no match for he who leads the clan.

    It's more awkward sounding to me as: You're no match for I who leads the clan.
