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

Got mine for 8,50 -> ordered the Mike budget deck 2 years ago (was on tappedout and the reason I fell in love with black)You can make him work as 75% combo deck but also use him in Jarad, Savra or any reanimator deck. He will always perform

Spoosky: I'm not running it because I have too many combos already, heh. Walking Ballista is a dead card outside the combo (and doesn't work with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed unless you have a free sac outlet).

Tbh Mikaeus, the Unhallowed seems a little too fancy for modern. 6-drops usually never get cast in a game of modern unless they're ramped out early. I'd cut it and add a third copy of Springleaf Drum. Also if you have Grafdigger's Cage (from the sb) out, the combo doesn't work at all. The rest looks nice though.

I personally would recammend puting in:
- Grave Betrayal
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
- Mind Slash
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Demonic Tutor
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Harvester of Souls
- River Kelpie
If you need more suggestions, this is the Marchesa deck that I made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

There are 6 cards that each let you directly convert mana into creature tokens at a 1=1 ratio.
Any one of these cards with your commander, and you can make as many tokens as you have mana, turn after turn after turn. I would strongly suggest running all six, as that maximizes the chances of having one in your opening hand, and of drawing a replacement if one should meet an untimely end.
Any one of the above-mentioned "Six Keys" will go infinite with your Ashnod's Altar, but if you want to pursue having them go infinite I would recommend also adding an Earthcraft. It is fantastic mana ramp by itself, similar to your Cryptolith Rite, but allowing you to tap creatures the turn they come into play, thus giving you your mana sooner, and enabling infinite combos.
Geralf's Messenger deals infinite loss of life when combined with your altar and your commander, and can otherwise be exploited as a token generator.
Since you run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, you could always add in a Triskelion for an infinite damage combo that does not rely upon your commander. Slotting in Tooth and Nail to fetch them out together makes for a nice single card wincon. (Triskelion would slot in nicely for Walking Ballista maybe)
Sacrifice effects are amazing in this deck, and a Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact can give you control of the game. The one I would really recommend, however, is Martyr's Bond, as it bring retribution for any permanent of yours that is destroyed, while still working as a field wipe as you sac creatures.
Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you receive good card draw when you sacrifice tokens, and Eldrazi Monument give all your creatures Flying, Indestructible, and +1/+1, at the cost of 1 token per turn.

RavynTheReaper If you combo Walking Ballista off of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. WalkingB will come out on the battlefield as a 1/1 creature. If you sac it, it comes back again as a 1/1 creature with an extra +1+1 on it. Use the +1+1 to deal 1 damage to target player or creature/ sac it/ repeat.
When Protean Hulk goes into the graveyard and gives you 6 cmc of tutor'd creatures. Mike Ballista is the best option by far.

I love how on theme this deck is. It could use a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed if you can spare for another one or something else with similar effect so you can combo a little better. Definitely mainboard Crumbling Ashes if you can get it. I might throw in some tutors just to raise your consistency. It always helps to go get the card you need for a particular board state. In general, I like how interactive this can be, but I don't think it has the late game power that it needs to be really good. You have good value and synergy, but there's not a group of win condition cards unless you count a combo'd out Quillspike. The good thing is most of your kill spells have a creature attached to them so you might be able to overrun people, but board wipes would pretty much wreck you until you have time to get them back and recast them all. You just might want to look into more combos or bigger win conditions. Still, I do love how synergistic this deck is. Most everything is on board the theme.
