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

Shinwizzles on Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH: To Make an Omelette

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.

As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.

I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.

I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

This is not a no infinite list, for what it's worth. Glen Elendra Archmage + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Altar of Dementia = infinite mill. I noticed this because I run these same three in my list and accidentally stumbled upon it while goldfishing one day.

As Epajula not so eloquently stated, Marchesa offers a delayed trigger so ETB's are far from intant speed although death triggers would be instant speed. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sneak Attack (get one, it's worth its weight in gold here) helps speed things up with these sorts of triggers though. I don't run very many instants myself, just Vampiric Tutor and Cyclonic Rift but they're very impactful. I'd suggest investing in some tutors like Diabolic Intent and Demonic Tutor as well to search up let pieces.

Thanks again. Infinite mana combos are a consideration, although I'd probably go for something that can be tutored with Protean Hulk or Tooth and Nail such as Deadeye Navigator + Palinchron . Because I already have kill combos with those cards infinite mana has always felt a bit redundant. I also don't have many ways to draw more cards on my turn so it seems hard to make full use of infinite mana.

Woodfall Primus seems good, but if I have Mikaeus, the Unhallowed out I'm already very close to killing. He usually never even hits the board without his combo pieces entering with him. Infinite Woodfall Primus seems a little redundant as a result.

Glen Elendra Archmage is busted and should probably be in the deck.

Dream Halls is cool, but again I don't have very many ways to draw a lot of cards on my turn. I'd also need a way to consistently sac it at the end of my turn. Might be good for going for an explosive winning turn when I already have a lot of cards and just need to break through a Tormod's Crypt though.

Ok, i'll go more into detail.

You need the 6 following cards played in this very exact order:

First You drop a Lotus Petal and crack it for and proceed with a Dark Ritual into Mana Vault which you immediately tap to have a total of floating.

Next you cast Buried Alive and get Bloodghast, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion into your graveyard leaving you at floating.The reason you start with Lotus Petal is you need the Swamp to trigger Bloodghast which is the next step.

Now tap that Swamp for a total of floating and cast Victimize to get the combo ready.

Shoot one damage with Triskelions 2nd ability at target opponent and the other 2 at it self (since its 2/2 with the +1/+1 Mikaeus Buff thus killing itself).

Since shooting the damage requires to remove the counters from it as an activation cost it has no counters left on itself at the moment the ability resolves and thats why it comes back with undying. After the first activation it comes back with both its own 3 counters plus the one from Mikaeus, so you keep repeating to shoot two damage to opponent and the remaining two at itself.

also Woodfall Primus would be nasty in this deck with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Not a bad list, I do have a few suggestions though.

First, get Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in here. You already run the other 2/3 of an infinite kill-the-table combo (Walking Ballista and Protean Hulk). Your opponents quickly realize they can't boardwipe or kill the Hulk or you can usually win on the spot and it protects the rest of your boardstate.

Cephalid Coliseum, Fauna Shaman, and Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper) are all great ways to selectively fill your grave. Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp are a bit less selective but still good options here.

I'd also replace Reclamation Sage with with Caustic Caterpillar. Scapeshift and Second Chance feel out of place here. I'd replace Scapeshift with Crop Rotation or Expedition Map. Second Chance I wouldn't run without some serious life manipulation like Necropotence and even then it's a bad card outside of comboing with it.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite
