Going by the "7 by 9" rule is a bit hard for this deck as most of it relies on the numbers of the cards. But here's a breakdown as close as I could get for it. There's only really 5 categories of effects. While the other 3 just break down the number of countdown numbers of random cards.

5 Countdown numbers (13)

4 Countdown numbers (13)

1-3 Countdown numbers (6)

Recusion (6)

Protection (8)

Destruction (6)

Card draw (8)

Mana rocks (6)

Monomanamaniac I had Dusk Urchins in my deck when I first made it the only reason I took them out was because I wanted to make the deck more competitive so it had to get faster. If you feel so inclined you could mention my deck by saying that it leans toward the faster side of magic. I am happy that you want to make a deck around Dusk Urchins, mid-range -1/-1 counters is a super fun deck type to play, let me know how the deck turns out for you.

Consider Dusk Urchins great concept of love to make a deck out of it. How do I mention your deck when I do?

goaliciousSadly Grind / Dust cannot be played in this EDH deck due to color identity.

I have been having some great fun with Hapatra myself. Here are a few budget (under 10$) suggestions for you:

And there are lots more but this should give you plenty to start.

I've been brewing Hapatra and to me it looks like you're not focused on her enough.

An example is Archfiend of Ifnir; you have 6 lands, 1 creature (him), and no other cards which cycle. Its payoffs seem very minor to have a slot even though it does give out -1/-1 counters.

Why so much support for Titania? Your deck almost looks like you really wanted to play her, not Hapatra. Yes, you have tutors or you could draw her but if you never see her, a lot of it becomes even less optimal. Speaking of lands, 15/38 come in tapped, that's almost half, and would make any start slow I would think.

While Plague Belcher will net 2 snakes, you have only 1 other zombie creature. Why not Necroskitter, Dusk Urchins, Crumbling Ashes, etc. that net a better return with -1/-1 counters.

Just like Nest of Scarabs, Flourishing Defenses is a great Plan C in case Hapatra cannot stay on the board. Redundancy is consistency.

I'd probably add a couple more instant -1/-1 counter spells to make surprise deathtouch blockers. Splendid Agony and Stinging Shot work.

Interesting build, I'd like to hear how it plays/evolves as time goes on!

I play a Mikaeus-deck myself and I really like your work. But I think your mana-curve is not really that optimal. I play many ramp cards and only combo-pieces, which allows to make a turn 4 or turn 5 kill, nearly every time. Please also be aware, that Mikaeus gives all your creatures +1/+1, so things like Mindless Automaton don't work, even if you kill them manually, it's stuck with only one +1-counter. If you want to make your deck more consistent and more deadly, take out all cards that don't kill your opponents IMMEDIATELY with Mikaeus. Cards like: Abhorrent Overlord or Dusk Urchins all need preparation time, so think about cutting them. Also cards like Liliana of the Veil don't do anything for your combo in this deck and are better off in a good modern deck (Oh, I wish I had one myself :( ). Here are some cards that I highly recommend to you, in order to combo off faster, and better:

Retribution of the Ancients

Fume Spitter (I love him but only in my starting hand)

Blood Artist

Blood Bairn

Zulaport Cutthroat

Devouring Swarm

Bloodthrone Vampire

Diabolic Servitude (maybe, but recommend)

Falkenrath Noble

Altar of Dementia

Altar of the Brood

Phyrexian Ghoul

Chainbreaker

Infernal Darkness (maybe, but always worth it)

Sidisi, Undead Vizier (maybe...)

Diabolic Intent

Dread Return (maybe...)

Pentavus (The only 7-drop allowed in this deck)

Nantuko Husk

Grim Haruspex

Grinding Station (you have many artifact creatures then...)

Wingrattle Scarecrow

Spincrusher

Lingering Tormentor

Skinrender

Some nice ways to tutor are:Dimir Machinations and Shred Memory. They get you all the combo pieces.

You may ask: "And what shall I cut?"Every Planeswalker, they do nothing for you in this deck. Every damn card that costs 5 mana or more (Only Exceptions are Pentavus and Triskelion) . (Yes, you can also cut Sidisi, Undead Vizier, if you have enough tutors). And everything, that doesn't combo with Mikaeus in a way that doesn't kill all your opponents immediately. Your goal is to win the game as soon as Mikaeus hits the battlefield. Most of the time the disruption can't do anything, because you can combo off in response to that. And to make it as fast as possible, add all mana artifacts known to mankind to your deck. Thran Dynamo, Jet Medallion and so on, and so on. You don't need any removal or any Temporal Extortion or Imp's Mischief and stuff like that. Aim for a turn 4 kill and cut everything that doesn't support your idea. There will be no threats on turn 4 or five that need you to have any special removal.

Hope this helps out.

If you want, I can post a link to my Mikaeus deck. I don't like to do advertisement for my decks, so I do it, if you want to see my idea of a perfect deck.

Cheers,ZZ
