Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Legendary Creature — Zombie Cleric


Whenever a Human deals damage to you, destroy it.

Other non-Human creatures you control get +1/+1 and have undying. (When a creature with undying dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with this guy out and all those -1/-1 counters the crocodiles can survive any "mass extinction" thats thrown at them.

You know have Vindictive Vampire, and Bastion of Remembrance as extra aristocrat piece. Have you considered Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? He combos off with Walking Ballista, Woodfall Primus, Triskelion, and Murderous Redcap. Also has excellent synergy with Kokusho, the Evening Star, which is also just a general "good-stuff" card that can keep you in the game. Other just great synergy cards I recommend are Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and Phyrexian Tower. Vivien, Monsters' Advocate can outright win games if you are able to keep her for a turn with Prossh into Purphoros.

Last_Laugh on Marchesa Combo

You have at least 1 other combos in there. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + River Kelpie/Glen Elendra Archmage (any non-human persist creature) + Goblin Bombardment/Ashnod's Altar or any other free sac outlet for infinite damage/mana (or whatever the sac outlet does).

Sage of Fables + Ashnod's Altar + undying i.e. Flayer of the Hatebound = infinite damage and draw. Sage and Flayer are also really good on their own in Marchesa.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's more of an etb/death trigger abuse deck than combo but it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site and has a ton of comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

Last_Laugh on Marchesa, Karate Chop Surprise!

You really need to drop some of your 5, 6, 7, and 8 drops. You'll notice a significant uptick in consistency by having more creatures come down before Marchesa. You should be shooting for 3.3 avg. cmc or less (you're realistically at about 3.6 counting Blasphemous Act as a 1 drop instead of the deceptive 9 it's technically counted as).

My suggestions would be more draw, ramp, and ways to immediately protect your creatures.

Draw: Midnight Reaper, Liliana's Standard Bearer, Necropotence, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and Consecrated Sphinx are your best options you don't already run. Forcing your opponent's to discard can also serve to equalize hand sizes, consider Vindictive Lich and Sadistic Hypnotist.

Ramp: I'd get all 3 Signets in here for more turn 3 Marchesa chances.

Immediate Counters: Spark Double can copy Marchesa for double dethrone or it can be used to abuse any etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round. Haste enablers are great for getting +1+1 counters to immediately protect your creatures, consider Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is like having a 2nd commander if you limit the number of humans you run. Spellskite is excellent for protecting key creatures and it's ability can be used as many times as needed to redirect the same spell/ability on the stack to lower your life where you want it.

Low Cost Sac Outlets: Diabolic Intent is arguably better than demonic tutor here (run both). Goblin Bombardment is an excellent sac outlet that only white/green can deal with consistently. Viscera Seer great sac outlet that sets up your draws.

Defiant Salvager vs Fallen Ideal

Also, make use of infinite sack combos! Any Persist creature + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + infinite sack = infinite whatever the outlet does. In this case, it creates an Infinity Elemental. I'D personally make a Jund +1/+1 themed combo deck with lots of recursion, but really its up to you to pare down on your focii.

Marchesa is a blast to play! Personally, I went away from the whole stealing creatures and making them my own bit, because it draws insane amounts of hate and I would be targeted right away. What I've now done with her is include nearly every board wipe that I can get my hands on and take advantage of all the death/etb triggers I could. This way your win cons are cards like Flayer of the Hatebound, Syr Konrad, the Grim which you already have. A few suggestions you may consider are Obliterate which is my favorite way to leave everyone in the dust and pretty much secure a win. Spark Double works very well in this deck. Treasonous Ogre also helps you manage your life so that you can consistently use the dethrone trigger and get some mana to work with. Goblin Bombardment is a great sac outlet. Impact Tremors also does great here. Also, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives most of your creatures undying so you won't have to worry about getting counters on them. Hopefully this helps out a litle bit! If you want, feel free to check out my deck for any other ideas as well: Life After Death, and Death After Life

Gidgetimer on seeking ideas for this combo ...

Yes, that is the idea. And if you need to make more mana along the way just don't equip the scythe a time or two. You will not put counters on the scythe, but you will net a mana.

As SynergyBuild said above it works with Pitiless Plunderer and Reassembling Skeleton as well to make infinite mana if you don't equip the scythe.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Puppeteer Clique will make you infinite mana while equipping the scythe with Ashnod's Altar or allow you to put infinite counters on while equipping, or infinite colored mana not equipping with Phyrexian Altar.

Gravecrawler and Pitiless Plunderer will make you infinite mana while still equipping the scythe with either Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with either Triskelion or Walking Ballista and a sac outlet can be used to put infinite counters on the scythe or make infinite mana, but they are also infinite damage without the scythe, so it seems redundant.

The gist is that it looks like you are going to need 2 additional pieces to go infinite, not just one.
