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 Discussion

Regarding variable pieces:
Something that could be implemented without a ton of debate about definitions are type/keyword placeholders. They're already defined and quite self-explanatory. I could imagine a lot of duplicates culled if combos could be listed like this:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + non-human creature with persist
(infinite sac fodder combo)
Since a search dialog and search by keyword is already implemented, the view could easily have a button that calls a search popup similar to the one in the edit deck page, to find alternative pieces without even leaving the combo page.
Would need a few minor adjustments though, like replacing the "add to board" button with one that calls the "add to collection" dialog and maybe culling the "keyword" and "rules" text fields.
Ah, but I'm getting carried away, arent I... Main point: Type(s)|Keyword(s) as placeholder for variable combo pieces.

Fair enough, we definitely have different play groups I think. I can't rely on creatures survival nearly as much since a wipe comes out every time anyone's board gets out of control. I like Sengir Autocrats because it fits the curve allowing you 4 things to sac the turn after you play yahenni. 4 creatures for 4 mana is extremely efficient.
One more thing I'd like to add. I saw you are planning on picking up a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One next. I bought both but Tbh sheoldred sits in my binder mostly because she draws so much hate and Mikaeus is great but once he's out everyone expects a Triskelion, Workhorse or some other combo. I know your playgroup may play less removal so this may not apply to you but Bitterblossom draws less hate, is harder to deal with and literally goes in any deck with black in it. I use it a lot more and I'd suggest if you're spending 20 dollars on a black staple start there. Just my 2 cents.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One are the next two big cards I'm getting, as they are great in this deck and are some of the best mono-black EDH cards. Until then, Cauldron of Souls looks good. I do like the look of that Skirsdag High Priest, because free(ish) 5/5 flyers every turn seems good. I had Magus of the Abyss in here, but it was one of the last cuts I made so I could playtest on Untap, on the reasoning that it does kill my own stuff evenly, even if it's still great. Once I add more token producers, it'll probably make it's way back in here. I like infinite combos, but feel Nim Deathmantle isn't great without a Grave Titan. I'll put that in once Gary and Overlord find a way in. I don't like the cockroaches because paying 3 mana a turn for an indestructible yahenni doesn't sound exciting.
Once again, thanks for all the help! But now I need to cut more cards...

Always happy to help RazortoothMtg! I definitely understand having to stick to budget needs. I think some other token generators you could look at are Ogre Slumlord, Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and the new Sly Requisitioner. Two cards that could be helpful in a wrath-heavy deck are Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cauldron of Souls. I know the former is a bit pricey but he may be a good investment down the road.
I'm not sure how you feel about infinite combos but you can make infinite tokens with Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar. You can add other components to this combo to create infinite damage, draw, etc.
One good card I would always have in mono-black is Gray Merchant of Asphodel. He can be a huge life swing and possibly even a game ender.
Magus of the Abyss could also be quite helpful in this deck. I definitely second that (budget pending), you should add Sheoldred, the Whispering One because she's meant for decks like this. You could look at less efficient but still effective means of pseudo-reanimating in the form of Brood of Cockroaches, Endless Cockroaches, and Oversold Cemetery. Since you aren't going to be re-using too many cards in your graveyard, things like Magus of the Will or Empty the Pits could be useful for big plays.

IAmTheWraith Ain't no thang, babe. Seriously, this deck can pull off a lot of different shenanigans. I listed Exsanguinate mainly because it's the easiest win to pull off. But I've won through things like Fallen Angel eating twenty-ish harpies with Grave Pact out to wipe the board and swing for huge, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Puppeteer Clique and swinging with everyone's dudes, sacrificing Kokusho, the Evening Star over and over, swinging with Ormendahl, Profane Prince Flip and other big dudes, blah blah blah... The deck is a lot of fun, you should try it out! ;D

So far I think they biggest problem you're gonna have is board wipes. If you can keep the army out they'll do work but if you get threatening we just need a wrath effect.
Saskia shares this problem of board-wipes fizzling me out. In her list I run a mix of 10ish recursion/indestructible and it feels like the sweet spot for it. I'd recommend about the same.
Cards that I feel are a must are:
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets - same as lili. devistating with the skate but boasts some bounce protection and a scry/draw.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade - gives some serious synergy with your outlast peeps as well as providing some serious ramp
Winding Constrictor - literally made for the deck. comes out just after commander 2016 release? suspicious....
Oath of Ajani - see above, MADE FOR THE DECK

Here's my reanimator combo Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Phyrexian Altar are coming in the mail right now, and I'm planning on getting Woodfall Primus. Any suggestions are appreciated.
