Grim Haruspex Discussion

multimedia on Marchesa, The Black Rose

Hey, the Avg. CMC of this deck is very high consider adding more artifact ramp to compensate such as Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence.

These are more suggestions in no order:

Consider some more early game plays because you want some ceature set-up before you play Marchesa. Baleful Strix is a very efficient creature for only two mana. It's also great when it gets dethrone. Carrion Feeder is a 1 drop free sac outlet that can give itself counters very good with Marchesa. Bitterblossom can gives you a constant basically free source of creatures to sac and with Oona's Blackguard also in your control can be very bad for your opponents.

If you're sacing creatures then Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls can be draw engines with Marchesa. With cards like Feeder, Viscera Seer, etc who are free sac outlets. They're also nice to get some advantage when stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them. Fleshbag Marauder, Mulldrifter and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are all excellent creatures who can sac themselves giving you value in return.

Sadistic Hypnotist has a very powerful free sac ability. A secondary theme here is stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them for value Olivia Voldaren is one of the best creatures who can do this. She also puts counters on herself which is great with Marchesa.

Culling Dais and Phyrexian Arena are additional draw. High Market having a land that can also be a sac outlet is good.

Good luck with your deck.

Dark Tutelage is a budget replacement for Dark Confidant

Grim Haruspex is another nice draw option if you are killing a lot of non token creatures

Mesmeric Fiend and Tidehollow Sculler are another source of "discard"

Youre gonna want snow covered swamps since you are playing Lens. This is because if you imprint a regular swamp then anyone else who is playing black will also get double mana.

Cauldron of Souls

Grim Haruspex

Nether Traitor

With Mikaeus, Walking Ballista and Triskelion produce infinite damage

cards like Contamination can keep opponents from disrupting you

No Grave Pact? Also I like more on board draw like Smothering Abomination, Dark Prophecy or Grim Haruspex. Then some more token producers would help, Xathrid Necromancer, Hanweir Militia Captain, Requiem Angel. I also have been enjoying Ravos, Soultender, and High Market in a B/W weeny deck, speaking of weeny decks, Dusk / Dawn works wonders in them, this card brings back most of your stuff while getting rid of everyone's fatties. Shred Memory can become another copy of Altar of Dementia or Blood Artist so its nice as another tutor. Also Nether Traitor (which can be tutored via Shred Memory) can generate infinite mana with your commander and Phyrexian Altar.

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

Some changes I thought off:

Mishra's Bauble > Sylvan Library much better draw\deck control.

Rescue from the Underworld > Defense of the Heart most likely opponent will have 3 creatures.

Grim Haruspex > Graveborn Muse seems like a better card draw, need to see if I have enough zombies\not too much.

Soul of the Harvest > Grave Titan feels like a good change as I need zombies and I need more creatures for sacrifice.
