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

dondorgatho on Hapatra's Scorpion God!

Thanks for commenting If considered Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Crumbling Ashes and Vigor but sadly I don't have the financial fluidity for those right now.

If thought of Cauldron of Souls but I worry my creatures will have counters on them when they need saving.

Necropolis Regent is a good idea :D

Crumbling Ashes would be good, but it can be kind of hard to find now that Hapatra is a popular commander. It looks like you're trying to pump out as many neg counters as possible so have you considered Cauldron of Souls? If there are lots of board wipes in your playgroup, it's a nice lifeline and it has the potential to make lots of neg counters. Add Necropolis Regent or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to counteract the negative counters with positive ones and your creatures become very hard to remove for good. That's just a combo I've ran in mono black before. You've got access to green so Vigor would make it even more bananas. I hope you find this helpful at least.

I've been tinkering with a French brew of this, but mostly focusing on life loss/damage. That being said, I have some fun options.

Breathstealer's Crypt is god tier. helps drain your opponents of resources and life while gaining you a litany of options by discarding your own creatures for free. Hoses mass draw decks/toolbox decks.

Even though you run a handful of non-zambles, Noxious Ghoul does some serious work...with your level of recursion wiping all non-zombies just gives you options and a winning swing.

Lord of the Undead and Phyrexian Reclamation / Tortured Existence make Gempalm Polluter's cycle abusable as heck

Tombstone Stairwell serves me pretty well in testing, but I generally see it as a worse Endless Ranks of the Dead

depending on your meta Balthor the Defiled might serve you well, I plan on playing mostly 1 v 1 with this deck so his ability should win me the game whenever I decide to use it, since ive been exiling/stealing all their good pieces the entire game. Otherwise he is just a body version of Living Death for you without requiring any sacrifice

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is a solid beater that doubles as a free sac outlet and slow creature removal (but efficient), usually him alongside Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and as many Diregraf Captain effects as you can fit ends the game outright (scarab trigger on upkeep then clearing your field can do substantial damage). He even fits your mill strategy with Phenax, God of Deception, just tap/mill/sac/untap/etc. until they are wiped out...milling one more card every time you do so

Well for starters, you definitely want more precombat damage sources (usually 7-8 total). Consider:

Those last 4 are important because they're not creatures, so harder to remove.

After that, you definitely want Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to defend against wipes. I also like Undying Evil and Nullstone Gargoyle.

Lastly, the very nature of the deck means you develop a huge board very fast, then probably get wiped. So consider not playing out your entire hand at once, so you can recover from wipes easier.

First of all, if Sidisi, Undead Vizier is your commander then you can't use Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as he falls under . If you decide to change to Zombies, then Rooftop Storm is a must, as well as Gisa and Geralf.

Now, if you're going to stick with Zombies, then I recommend Graveborn Muse, she offers some of the best draw power you can get in zombies. If you can get your hands on a Sheoldred, Whispering One, I'd suggest using one. She's one of the most annoying cards in black, making your opponents sacrifice creatures while you get to resurrect yours.

Then there are zombies like Relentless Dead, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead which can be a bit pricey so if your budget allows it, I'd suggest getting your hands on them.

Here's a zombie deck I've been working on myself - Zombie Apocalypto - It's , but I'm sure there are some ideas there you could use.

VexenX on The Scarab God Makes His Triumphant Entrance

I don't think Retribution of the Ancients is good enough to run just because of one card in your deck (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed). If he was your commander then that is a different sorry. It is a dead card without him. I would cut Ever After, not a lot for 6cmc.

I also would consider some Flash enablers so that you can keep mana up for counters, and bring back your commander before your upkeep everytime!

Here are a few cards I think you should add if you want to go down the Hapatra trail mindful some a loot right now >.< Harbinger of Night, Grim Poppet,Deity of Scars, Serrated Biskelion, Deadbridge Chant, Victimize, Grave Pact, Skullclamp, Dusk Urchins, Sudden Spoiling, Creakwood Liege, Krosan Grip, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Channeler Initiate, Seshiro the Anointed, Skinrender, Beastmaster Ascension

I can add more later but the gist of it is using Sac and reanimate to abuse ETB. Then using overrun effects like Seshiro and Beastmasters ascension to roll over the cleared out boards. Also using lots of sac reanimate lets you use a more toolbox approach similar to Meren decks!

PickleNutz on Solemnity

How would the new Mtggoldfish official spoiler card, Solemnity, released by Magic just recently effect Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? Would it essentially make every card that dies immortal because of undying? Or would it cancel the effect?
