sonnet666 on competitive mikaeus

Ok, so lets talk about main game plan before we start nitpicking particular cards.

I've never tried to build Mikaeus myself, but from what I know about combo decks there are three categories of pieces that make the deck work: 1) Creatures that can re-undie with Mike's ability; 2) Sac outlets to feed them to; and 3) Death triggers that can create a win condition.

From the looks of this deck, what you tried to do was to load up on as many of each these as you could to get the best chance of drawing into the ones you need. Here's what you have of each category:

  1. Walking Ballista, Triskelion, Crystalline Crawler, Chainbreaker, Spincrusher, Banewhip Punisher, Wingrattle Scarecrow, Tatterkite, Plague Belcher, Skinrender, Lingering Tormentor, Pith Driller, Soulstinger, Cinderhaze Wretch, and Carnifex Demon. 15 Total

  2. Altar of Dementia, Blasting Station, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Viscera Seer, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodthrone Vampire, Carrion Feeder, Spawning Pit, and Tainted AEther. 10 Total

  3. Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Altar of the Brood, Grim Haruspex. 4 Total

So, all in all, 29 of your deckslots are focused on nothing except your main win condition. That's a lot of bloat for a deck that needs to ramp at least to 6, and should be packing disruption aimed at its opponents on top of that. Considering you're in the color with the best unconditional tutoring, I think you can get away with cutting a lot of those redundant combo pieces, and right now the first category is what you have the most of. I'd say anything that doesn't reduce the need for additional pieces or generate infinite mana is worth cutting.

I'd cut all of the following:

For more tutors, draw, and ramp. (That would also lower your curve to where Ad Nauseam is viable.) Leave Banewhip Punisher, Chainbreaker, and Spincrusher since they're the cheapest, and Banewhip Punisher is semi-decent removal.

I also recommend Skullclamp in terms of draw, as it goes very well with the reccruing creatures and sac outlets. You could also consider a bit of a reanimator strategy to get your combo pieces, since black can tutor to the graveyard.

I really like this deck a lot. I made a few changes of my own that seem to help the lack of a way to finish off your opponent.

Fling allows for either Bloodthrone Vampire or Carrion Feeder to go on trip to your opponents face

Krenko's Command for blockers and food for the Fling or 2 cards to scrye to the Viscera Seer.

If you want to try it out go for it, it seems to flow nicely on top of your framework.

ok, I still like it. =)

One more thing, what about Devouring Swarm instead of Bloodthrone Vampire, because of the flying?

It might be good to go down on two copies of Bloodthrone Vampire and add in a couple Mortician Beetles. You never want to be flooded on sac outlets.

Thanks for having a look. What I could do is change the deck around to include more black and sacrificing cards such as:

-4 Rancor

+4 Fatal Push

-1 Thrun, the Last Troll

-2 Blossoming Defense

-3 Vines of Vastwood

+2 Varolz, the Scar-Striped

+4 Bloodthrone Vampire?

Also, is Tasigur, the Golden Fang worth having in a deck like this, or should I cut him to make room for another Varolz, the Scar-Striped and Skirsdag High Priest?

Thanks for the help!

If you maybe want to make the sacrificing a little more consistent and focus more on the Bloodthrone Vampire and Rite of Consumption plan, maybe include more creatures like Myr Sire that replace themselves. Cards like Doomed Dissenter, Carrier Thrall and Sultai Emissary are all fine options and allow for two sacrifices with one creature. Maybe replace the Perilous Myr and Tattered Mummy with these options, as although those creatures do hurt the opponent, committing fully to just bloodthrone-riting someone out should make it so you don't need the extra damage. Hope this helps in some way, really like the deck!

One card I have had a lot of success with in similar lists is Mogis's Marauder. It allows you to use Rally the Ancestors a bit more offensively as you can give a Bloodthrone Vampire haste on your turn off of a rally.
