Xion16 on Mikaeus Infinite Combo Absurdity

1 day ago

Cheap cards you want to add here:

Crystalline Crawler - take out one of your less desirable sac fodders and use this one to generate infinite black mana!

Also find a place to fit in Fleshwrither for another cheap 'tutor' type card that works great in this deck, especially once you add in the Crystalline Crawler, since it can go hunting for it, just like your Dimir House Guard.

Cards to tune this ever closer to victory:

Conqueror's Flail

Cavern of Souls

Both these cards are designed for one thing and one thing only for you... getting Mikaeus on the board. All the combo's are wonderful and fun and nice and all... but they don't work without him. So getting him on the board to let your infinite sac mills spin into (un)life is the glass bottleneck this deck will probably struggle the most against when dealing with players who know how the deck runs out.

Cavern of Souls is expensive I know... so maybe go the Conqueror's Flail first if your picking these up :)

Xion16 on Mikaeus Combo Competitive EDH

1 day ago

Having played Mikaeus a fair bit now... my advice is make space for these two cards:

Conqueror's Flail

Cavern of Souls

Reason is Mikaeus is the lynchpin of every combo and all of my players know it, so they hold back their counter's and removal for that moment when I need to bring him in and get his sac engine spinning. Conqueror's Flail is safer, since you just need to have all the other pieces in play and then drop Mikaeus in, and they should not be able to respond unless they have something already in play. Most of my players tend to use counter-spells to watch for these threats, followed by bounce and then outright destruction, so Cavern of Soul's still would do a great job of making sure he hits the table... whereafter pretty much all of the infinity engines can run at instant speed, infinitely, thus being able to overlap any piece destruction or bouncing on the stack by simply overlaying more infinite sacrificing on it.

There are several Sliver I think your amiss in dismissing:

Bonescythe Sliver, for cheap double strike.
Brood Sliver, for massive Sliver production.
Harmonic Sliver, for artifact/enchantment removal.
Heart Sliver, for cheap haste.
Magma Sliver, for massive gains.
Manaweft Sliver, as a backup Gemhide Sliver.
Necrotic Sliver, to turn every Sliver into a Vindicate.
Shifting Sliver, to make your team unblockable.
Sinew Sliver, as another Muscle Sliver.
Virulent Sliver, to only have to deal ten, not 40.
Winged Sliver, for more flying.

Other Slivers you might consider: Basal Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Essence Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Horned Sliver, Spined Sliver, Spitting Sliver, Lymph Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Psionic Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Screeching Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord, Synapse Sliver, Synchronous Sliver, and Syphon Sliver.

Tribal stuff:
Cavern of Souls, obviously.
Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
Belbe's Portal
Urza's Incubator
Patriarch's Bidding

- Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
- Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
- Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
- Possibly Nacatl War-Pride for that final unblock able swing?

Phaetion on Hour of Devastation Spoilers

I like the Sphinx. Looks pretty cheap to build a tribal EDH deck on a budget, save Consecrated Sphinx and the obligatory Cavern of Souls.
