Mikaeus, the Lunarch Discussion

Managem on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

4 weeks ago

Must be a mere coincidence, I was thinking last night of making a partnered EDH deck, and thought Ravos, Soultender and Tymna the Weaver immediately, the access to lifegain, removal, and reanimate between white and black is superb. It would fare well against a lot aside from Aunt Ani aka Animar, Soul of Elements being pro black and white

I have to say I'm impressed with what I just saw in this deck, looks like a blast to pilot. If I may make potential suggestions, or future upgrades it would be the following;

Cavern of Souls choosing cleric obviously

Land Tax This can easily help filter/thin out your deck, while providing potential ramp, not that you necessarily need it much, but still.

Rotlung Reanimator despite the fact you have an Angel that wipes zombs. Rotlung could net you bodies for board presence which can help cushion against attacks, or play offensively if need be...

High Priest of Penance removal

Mikaeus, the Lunarch pumps your clerics well enough

Bishop of Rebirth

Sanctum Prelate Stellar control, if it dies you can always play it anew and choose new numbers with Ravos

True Conviction definitely high cmc but can turn tides easily!

Auriok Champion

Archangel of Thune

Debt to the Deathless

Righteous Confluence

Custodi Soulbinders

Felidar Sovereign not a cleric and somewhat high cmc but another alt win con similar to Test of Endurance

Athreos, God of Passage not a cleric but great reanimator and swinger if online.

Just some examples, there are many variations that can be made of this deck. Especially zombie or spirit token generation that can stabilize the board and propel Tymna the Weaver, anything that has ETB effects are great for Ravos such as

Ashen Rider

Sin Collector

Hope this long list of good junk may help you!

Hey guys. I really want help improving my deck. It's kind of a mix of everything. I'd like an infinite turn combo with sage of hours. There is a small hard to do one in there with Hardened Scales, Corpsejack Menace, and Mikaeus, the Lunarch. I just want this deck to work consistently, so any constructive criticism is welcome!

Mikaeus, the Lunarch would be a good fit, since he can be cast for 2 mana, and just start ramping up your +1/+1 tokens a lot.

You might want to take out Cabal Coffers considering you only have 3 swamps in the whole deck.Some good cards you could use are things like Cryptolith Rite, Champion of Lambholt, Abzan Falconer, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Spike Weaver, Verdant Force, and Inspiring Call.

Cards like Cathars' Crusade and Mikaeus, the Lunarch are good for token beatdown and will counteract any -1/-1 counters.

But if you run enough token production, just outpace your friend. Who cares if your board gets wiped when you can churn out masses of creatures each turn. Also, with cards like Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge then your tokens have already done work, even if they die.

Thanks again for the help! I'm trying to make a strong Selesnya deck that can compete in Grand Prix-type events as well as being a force at FNM, etc., so feel free to take a look at my deck and let me know what you thinks works well and maybe what doesn't. I've been going back and forth on quite a few cards (I don't list my side board), such as Voice of Resurgence, Congregation at Dawn, Boon Satyr, and Mikaeus, the Lunarch just to name a few. Not sure if having the planeswalker in my deck makes sense either. Before I ramble too much, I let you look it over whenever you get a chance!

No problem! And yes, putting Rafiq in the 99 was what I meant, not as the commander.

I couldn't really give any suggestions (research cards online) earlier, but now I can help more.

Proliferate lets you put 1 more counter on any number of counters on the battlefield, so if you were to proliferate, and you have 5 creatures with +1/+1 counters on them, you can add one more to each of them, and up a loyalty counter on a planeswalker, or an experience counter if you have it. Just any kind of counter. It's an amazing ability to have, and blue has it the most I believe (if not it's a close 2nd).


Good cards to consider for proliferating might be:

Thrummingbird is not bad. It has flying so it'll be harder to get from damaging players and proliferating

Contagion Engine is a MUST for a proliferators. You proliferate TWICE, and weaken your opponent's creatures, (which fun fact you can proliferate those as well). Has kind of an expensive cost at first, but after a bit in the game, four mana to up all your counters, then up them AGAIN will be a walk in the ballpark, especially since most the cards in this deck are 5 or less mana.

Contagion Clasp is the diet sugar-free version of the above, of course its much cheaper, but the ability is the same cost, and only proliferates once. Still not a bad card though.

Steady Progress is a pretty simple instant, and helps for card draw.

Finally, this may not be TOO useful, but is something to think about, Throne of Geth will let you proliferate, HOWEVER saccing the artifacts you have isn't too good of an idea, but that's up to you. At the very least, you could sacrifice the Throne itself to proliferate just once, maybe sac Sol Ring once you have tons of mana? That's up to you.

There are a few other cards which proliferate, but they deal Infect damage. Thankfully you can proliferate the poison counters they give to players and the -1/-1 counters they put on creatures, but it's been my experience playing with Infect decks that it's often better to make Infect the absolute focus of a deck that has it, Reason being that the creatures built around Infect are designed to be very fast, Infect decks are usually fast aggro decks


Good cards for putting counters on creatures might be

Lifecrafter's Gift you can never go wrong with this card, it's almost like proliferate too.Scale Blessing Pretty much the same as above.Patron of the Valiant is like those two almost proliferate cards above, except it's a creature with flying, which means you can put counters on it too!!

Titania's Boon Easy way to get the proliferate train started.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch is slowgoing, and in danger of getting targeted with an instant or sorcery, but you still have counters to throw around.

Vastwood Hydra if you plan on having the gobs of mana for it, or at least enough to put 1 counter on each other creature once it inevitably dies.

Sunbringer's Touch is okay for the first part, but it's mostly for that juicy trample effect that it'd shine in this deck.

Ainok Bond-Kin Tuskguard Captain Crowned CeratokAbzan Battle PriestAbzan Falconer these will synergize the hell outta this deck, in my humble opinion.

Renegade Krasis is another good ol' counter putter.

Celestial Ancient will be useful, with those 12 or something enchantments in your deck.

Inspiring Call is also good for both synergy and card draw.
