Xion16 on Mikaeus Infinite Combo Absurdity

1 day ago

One of my favorite play's with my own Mikaeus deck is to get infinite mana by using either my Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Crystalline Crawler or Workhorse and then play out Carnage Altar or Viscera Seer or a different tutor to go find the Carnage Altar. Then you play out the

Once you got that, you have the black answer to Enter the Infinite and Omniscience

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 :)

Also You have a birds of paradise but you dont have any of the other cheaper 1 drop mana rampers? 39 lands is a lot. One land could be Wild Growth. Another could be Crystalline Crawler that should be in every aatraxa deck I think. Your 1/3rd green so adding an Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves seems good. You also can run alot of cheap 2 drop rocks. You have 4 colors add the signets. All of them, seriously they are the best rocks for the price. Also White super friends usually = Oath of Gideon.

You really only need 32-34 lands unless your curve is busted to all hell and yours looks pretty good. The lands that enter tapped are un-ideal but if your playing casual it works. You need some ramp though man. Rampant Growth and Crop Rotation are good if you need a color your missing.

I believe Mikaeus, the Unhallowed deserves a bump from 2.5 to at least 2 maybe more. with relatively recent cards like Walking Ballista and Crystalline Crawler.

I have what I would like to think is a tier 1 to 1.5 tier list, but as you stated in your rules I am biased.

If you don't mind checking it out maybe it can help change your minds

Ah yes, I forgot Skate.

Also, to finish up creatures, I personally love Spike Weaver. Also, many suggest Crystalline Crawler.

Airdraken - I have thought of Pentavus. Didn't make the list the first time around, but could be something to test if I feel like something isn't as strong as I want it to be. Crop Rotation is just a card I forgot about, probably will find its way in here. Haven't had enough time to test Animation Module yet, so stay tuned. As for Ulvenwald Mysteries and any other card with the text "nontoken creature", I feel like I don't get enough value off of it. I feel like I sacrifice tokens too often to get enough value off of those cards to run them in the list. Mindless Automaton isn't bad per se, but I feel like this list has enough effects to keep the hand full or generate pseudo-card advantage. Crystalline Crawler could be a solid include to some lists, but I haven't really felt the need for further fixing. Eldrazi Monument is definitely a solid card, so maybe it's worth a slot. I'll have to see if I can fit it. Ordeal of Nylea feels too weak for me. I think there are other cards that are more significant that I would like to run before that. Attrition is a solid removal option, but I think I may try Retribution of the Ancients before Attrition. Swarmyard is a good add-in for later, but at the time I felt like the ~$10 could be better spent on other cards.

Awesome list. I'm currently trying to make my own. and forgot to look at others lists on here before buying! Oops!

Have you thought about Pentavus ? Also i'm thinking of trying Tetravus. too doing a similar thing but only at end of turn.

Crop Rotation to find any specific land and sacs.

Animation Module How has the testing for that been going?

Have you given consideration to Ulvenwald Mysteries ? So for every non token creature that dies you'll get a clue. so you get a (2) sac clue draw a card. When you sacrifice the clue you get a 1/1. I haven't had a chance to play but

Also Mindless Automaton Could be more card draw dependent on how many counters you're getting with Mazirek. Crystalline Crawler is of the similar route but for mana.

Eldrazi Monument ?

Ordeal of Nylea i think is also super interesting. providing +1/+1 counters, a sacrifice and ramp. Attrition Golgari Germination
