Dregs of Sorrow Discussion

Suggestions for your mana base:

Remove: Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Warped Landscape, and Mind Stone. Add: Myriad Landscape, Cabal Coffers, High Market, and Charcoal Diamond.

Tower of Calamities depends a lot of mana to destroy only one creature. Try Black Market in its place.

Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).

34 lands is simply too few in my opinion so think about cutting Ascendant Evincar, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Nightmare, and Shadowborn Demon for 4 Swamps.

Suggestions for draw and card advantage:

It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.

Suggestions for removal spells:

Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Definitely Go:

Replacement Ideas:

Maybe Add:

Ghost Quarter is also strictly worse than Strip Mine

Everglades could be replaced by Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to complete the mana acceleration package and it's probably worth running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so your few nonswamps count for your doublers.

There's plenty of ideas here: https://edhrec.com/commanders/mikaeus-the-unhallowed

Dude! This looks soooo badass! A very nice revamp! Dregs of Sorrow immediately springs to mind 'cause of removal combined with carddraw :) you might want a tad of lifegain, since I've noticed you have quite a few things that make you lose life. Iknow you're in black, but there's no reason to nosedive into concrete without at least some bandaids in your pocket ;) apart from that, this looks bloody brilliant! If you're willing to gamble with the drawpower: Font of Mythos is there for you ;) stay frosty, Mr. Hardhitta

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers please. Also Damnable Pact, Dregs of Sorrow, and Minions' Murmurs because I don't think you have enough rats.

there are a few card draw spells that I might suggest for this deck Carnage Altar, Damnable Pact, Dark Prophecy, Decree of Pain, Dregs of Sorrow, Erebos, God of the Dead, Fruit of the First Tree, Greed, Inheritance, Insist, Mind's Eye, Nantuko Cultivator, Necrologia,Symbiotic Deployment Phyrexian Etchings, Well of Discovery, Wretched Confluence

Now, all of these are not perfect, and some will probably be easily vetoed but they all can function as good card draw in your deck. Well, besides insist, but that card is just nice to have.

The Decree of Pain and Necromantic Selection are there for large board wipe to get around hexproof/shroud and the Dregs of Sorrow is therefor spot removal + draw. The deck purposefully runs no creatures. Also I chose to run Go for the Throat instead of Doom Blade due to the number of black creatures that role around our battlefield. Also the Elixir of Immortality are there for the life gain/graveyard cycle. Good suggestions though.

At a first glance, I think that Damnable Pact and Hellfire, but if you want to keep Hellfire just play Dregs of Sorrow, since it's a little more costly mana wise, but I dont think you'd have much trouble there, plus you aren't losing 3 life per, you're getting cards. For the second card to remove (in the event you want to keep Hellfire or you swap to Dregs) I would say Temporal Extortion. This was a pet card of mine in standard all those years ago, but in multiplayer I find that people are more willing to take the hit. That being said, that life loss with Exquisite Blood looks pretty sweet. I would look at what doesn't perform very well in your meta and make the call that way. Hope this helps.
