Mikaeus, the Lunarch Discussion

Can you run the following more streamlined combo from Sisay Primer (Stax-Combo) (100% Competitive!)?

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

May I ask why you don't use the more streamlined combo?

Now to explain the actual combo, it is a quite simple combo, that takes one turn/tutor/cast after you fetch Paradox Engine from Captain Sisay and takes at the slowest 3 turns on a normal curve to win after turn 4. (you win by turn 6 then).

Cool, now here is the combo.

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

This takes up a lot less space than fetching Blasting Station from Inventors' Fair, and using Azusa, Lost but Seeking to get the land drops, and you don't need the mana to cast Dragonlord Dromoka with Dosan the Falling Leaf. It also doesn't rely on Reki, History of Kamigawa, so no need for infinite casts of Green Sun's Zenith. You don't need to rely on targetting with Bontu's Monument (as opposed to Blasting Station).

In total, the combo I suggest you use is a 9 card combo, but I will call it an 8 card combo as one is the commander. 8 cards is still a lot of dead draws, but normally Mox Amber, Mox Opal (if you have metalcraft), Dosan the Falling Leaf, and a few other cards in the combo aren't entirely dead.

Your current combo runs 14 dead cards, not including Captain Sisay for obvious reasons. (I didn't include Green Sun's Zenith either as it would be run regardless of the combo.) And the same thing is true about how you don't mind drawing a Mox Amber or whatever, but being able to drop 6 semi-dead cards makes the deck much more refined.

I hate it already! ;)

Looks like you've got most of the key pieces, but here's a few more for your Maybeboard:

- Abzan Battle Priest (also Mer-Ek Nightblade and Crowned Ceratok)

- Gyre Sage

- Mikaeus, the Lunarch

- Pir, Imaginative Rascal

- Patron of the Valiant (and/or Renegade Krasis)

Death's Presence and Druidic Satchel are both pretty great for this deck. Oh, and don't forget about Bone Splinters!

OK - there are lots more, but hopefully that's complicated things sufficiently for you. Enjoy!

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could be a good inclusion as well as Mikaeus, the Lunarch. I would also probably throw in a Brimaz, King of Oreskos if you're looking to add more tokens.

For more nonsoldier utility creatures I would definitely look into a Grand Abolisher,Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite,Mirror Entity and Crovax, Ascendant Hero

Wow after playing this a few times it flows very well considering how unorthodox your mana curve is.

I don't believe that Detention Sphere and Tamiyo, Field Researcher are enough for a blue splash. For your purposes, you can easily replace Detention Sphere with Fiend Hunter for further Human synergy or a different exile card such as Oblivion Ring.

As for Tamiyo, Field Researcher, you could try Karn, Scion of Urza if you want a more immediate card draw 'Walker, or Huatli, Radiant Champion if you want to get really out of control with card draw.

Those two suggestions above wouldn't alter the deck beyond it's intention and remove any of my doubts about the mana base.

I would also remove Mikaeus, the Lunarch for another Sigil Captain. And of course, Doubling Season I believe should be at 2 copies to add another copy of Gather the Townsfolk.

I mean, Saffi does also have other combo (not in this deck), and can be used as protection for other creatures (whilst her being in the yard isn't making the combo any more difficult (one use of Bow of Nylea) and a fetch and she's right back in hand, yet the main issue with the combo that was gone over is that you need from non-land sources.

It costs one green less to use Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and one mana less is very useful.

Yo, lightninja7 to use Mikaeus, the Lunarch still needs 3 mana because Bow of Nylea costs two to tap.

Oh yeah! Id say that Riders of Gavony shpuld go, its very situational (unless you play vs tribals a lot) Thraben Doomsayer.. hes just bad can do way better for a 4cmc slot. Hall of Triumph just meh, go for a better anthem for 2 mana instead. Mikaeus, the Lunarch is just kinda ok. Would be good if you focused on 1/1 counters (maybe)Somberwald Sage and even Sol Ring you're in green you dont need this silly shit. As for the rest most is up to you, i'd rather run other cards than Increasing Devotion and Crusader of Odric but aa I saod before! There are a lot of ways to play slesnya. Either go token madness, white weenies (and protect the shit outta them) or +1/+1 counters. If you're having a hard time playing vs control decks you need to really out-value your opponents, thats either more evasive creatures or creatures that give you shit when they ETB or attack or something along those lines.
