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

Emuron on List of all infinite combos 2.0

Metallic Mimic/Sage of Fables/Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Puppeteer Clique + any free sac outlet + any Grave Pact affect.

Metallic Mimic/Sage of Fables/Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Puppeteer Clique + Goblin Bombardment

Metallic Mimic/Sage of Fables/Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Puppeteer Clique + Phyrexian Altar

Basically, if a creature has a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, the counters see each other and both disappear. This allows persist to trigger indefinitely.

Allow me to introduce a Doomsday combo that I don't think people have mentioned.

Doomsday fetching Infernal Contract, Sacrifice, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Walking Ballista and Carrion Feeder. Use Infernal contract to draw the other four. Sacrifice K'rrik for 7 and cast the other three cards for an infinite Mikaeus loop.

This is a pretty small package that still allows you to win out of nowhere when your main plan is disrupted.

Flayer of the Hatebound + Sage of Fables + Ashnod's Altar for infinite draw/damage.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Altar of Dementia + any non-human Persist creature for infinite mill. Replacing Altar of Dementia with Ashnod's/Phyrexian Altar will fuel a game ending spell also.

But honestly even with all those combos the deck typically wins through etb/death trigger abuse coupled with aggro and a bit of resource denial like Oona's Blackguard / Sadistic Hypnotist .

I have a bit more non-combat finishing reach in mine with Metallic Mimic + Kokusho, the Evening Star or Gray Merchant of Asphodel . Jokulhaups with your creatures coming back reliably ends games also.

The deck plays as an Aristocrats style deck, with the goal being to create a controlling presence on the board via continually using effects like Grave Pact , and by recurring creatures like Plaguecrafter , Voidmage Prodigy , Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, and etc. From there you will typically win via combat damage, though by making small adjustments to this particular list it is also easily viable to win via combo if you include Goblin Bombardment , since you can then loop Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Glen Elendra Archmage for infinite damage.

Also, if you're looking for another Hulk line, incase Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Walking Ballista is removed, I suggest Lesser Masticore + Disciple of the Vault + Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer allowing for a instant speed win off of a Protean Hulk .

Ask yourself this. If you have Opalescence in play and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in play and a creature/enchantment dies, does it come back?

Add Worldgorger Dragon for Infinite mana

Add Leonin Relic-Warder for infinite ETB triggers

Can be used with Goblin Bombardment and Purphoros, God of the Forge for infinite damage.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Nim Deathmantle with Ashnod's Altar as a sac outlet and Murderous Redcap for infinite colorless mana and damage, or Puppeteer Clique for infinite colorless mana and steal all the creatures in the grave. Shouldn’t be hard to fill the grave since you’re running Dictate of Erebos .

Viscera Seer gives you scry to stanch your deck. Aristocrats give life drain.
