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

MindAblaze on How Long is Too Long?

I have this problem, in my Sultai Sidisi deck in particular. Saccing Undead Vizier with Rooftop Storm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Havengul Lich over and over can become tedious, but its not infinite, and Ive found a few ways that I can speed up my play. Being sober helps, and knowing what cards make the biggest contributions to the goal. It has been commented that I like to play with all my cards.

But yeah, if someone asked me what I was doing I could explain it step by step and wait for people to interact. If theres no interaction then they can move on while I flop my board state out. The downside is sometimes I draw into stuff while doing that that does end the game. Communication is always key.

Looks like a very nice deck :) Some additional tutors in it could be nice (next to Razaketh of course). Since you are using a sacking/recursion theme, maybe Buried Alive or Entomb? In terms of recursion by the way, I am really missing Victimize in this deck. As for your discard theme, it could be wonderful to enhance its power by adding Bloodchief Ascension. It is so damn powerful.

I am running a mono-black deck too, with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed as its commander. Please take a look at it, if you have some time, and let me know what you think. Happy gaming!

Here are a few suggestions for synergy regarding pirates, and leveraging against board wipes:

Use cards like Conspiracy, Xenograft and Arcane Adaptation to make everything a pirate.

Creatures to help mitigate board wipes in Grixis could include Coffin Queen (steal from the graveyard and/or exile), Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (exile all opponent creatures that die and get zombie tokens), Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (undying), Marchesa, the Black Rose (dethrone - amazing synergy with Mikaeus), Geth, Lord of the Vault (steal from graveyard and mill), Sheoldred, Whispering One (board swinging reanimation and opponent sacrifice) and Soul of New Phyrexia (permanents become indestructible).

Artifacts and spells to help mitigate could include Eldrazi Monument (creatures are indestructible), Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact (opponent sacrifices when your creatures die), Darksteel Plate (indestructible), Training Grounds (reduce all activated abilities of creatures noted), Paradoxical Outcome (bounce to hand and card draw for significant advantage).

I'm sure there are many more, but those were the first that came to mind. Good luck with your build.

Errast on Mikaeus, the Unfriendly

Approximos, the problem with Walking Ballista is that it has no way of coming back without outside assistance. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives him a base P/T of 1/1, as well as a +1 counter. This means that to be infinite damage, you'd have to sacrifice the Ballista to say, Ashnod's Altar to be able to kill him while still doing damage to your opponents (or ping himself with a Blood Artist in play like I mentioned before). His buff to non-human creatures is an unfortunately oft-forgotten aspect of Mikaeus.

Hey, ACDAMAN. Welcome to EDH. Since you're new to EDH, why not play with mono-colored decks? Some people use a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to start with, as they like the combos. Shoot, an out of box Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is also a good start. I have a Purphoros, God of the Forge deck in which I let the new commander players in the shop use, and it's simple to play but hits everyone (Especially the people with multiple color decks) pretty hard. I personally just like the simplicity of mono-red speed and no-diplomacy burning. I'm putting my deck down below as an example. Good luck!

RingoDingo92 on Toxicity: A Hapatra EDH Deck

Awesome Hapatra deck! The only thing that doesn't make sense here is Aetherworks Marvel. With no other means of creating energy, its potential use seems extremely situational and therefore unworthy of inclusion. Natural Order, which I see is in your sideboard, makes way more sense in the slot. Still a 4-drop, and turning a snake token into something much more badass is always a good play.

I also suggest Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. He's sneakily good with Hapatra. With all the -1/-1 counters you'll be putting on creatures, more often than not your creatures will meet his condition each time they die.
