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

Bhaal666: I'm glad I could help! I'm just worried that Concordant Crossroads would give my opponents the ability to kill me faster :( It does give me a way to do my second infinite combo faster, though...

DastardlyStache: Yeah, it's one of the cards I really need to add, haha. What would you cut for it? I don't want to cut anything that gives -1 counters, because they're pretty central to my strategy.

AwezomePozzum: Mikaeus, the Unhallowed used to be in the deck, but got cut to lower the curve. I'm looking for a way to put him back in, though, because he immediately goes infinite with Devoted Druid...And Iron_Cube is right. The deck has no snake subtheme without my commander, so anything that completely depends on my commander's ability (and has 6 CMC) was one of the cuts. He's a card I want to add back in, but I'd need to find space.

Thank you all for your comments!! :)

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Sac outlet + your persist creatures would also go infinite just for some redundancy, but those usually aren't a bad thing to have

Moar snek tribal! Also, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? It synergizes very well with all of your -1/-1 counter effects that hit your creatures.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed fist mgiht also help as he buffs as well as brings your stuff back to life. With added bonuses to destruction and a decently sized body with evasion. Also throw in Retribution of the Ancients or Hex Parasite and you can wipe the 1/1 counters so that you can double dip on the undying trigger.

You actually made me look at my deck and realize I hadn't updated it in a long time. I had listed a few cards, which were no longer in the deck, that I suggested to cut. one of the few cards that i have had a lot of fun with is Overseer of the Damned, really solid card with good utility. Also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is super easy to combo with. Triskelion or Walking Ballista both go infinite with him alone. Something i noticed while playing Meren was that you could stop someone from playing their artifacts and enchantments super easily and creatures not terribly hard either. However, indestuctable creatures are annoying and hard to deal with as well as opposing graveyard recursion affects. to combat them i enlisted Faceless Butcher. Another good one which i only have 1 copy of is Duplicant. These are both really good cards to use multiple times. butcher is a bit harder to work with but costs less mana too. I am going to copy paste a scenario for you to show why he is very good.

1) Faceless Butcher enters the battlefield, triggering its ability. 2) Butcher's Controller puts the ability on the Stack, choosing the target creature. 3) Butcher's Controller then uses an Instant or Ability to Sacrifice the Butcher, triggering its" Leaves the Battlefield" effect. 4) The "Leaves the Battlefield" effect was put on the Stack more recently than the "Enters the Battlefield" effect, so it will resolve first. 5) When the "Leaves the Battlefield" effect resolves, nothing has been Exiled by the Faceless Butcher, so there is nothing to return to the Battlefield. 6) When the "Enters the Battlefield" effect resolves, the target creature gets Exiled.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is a good zombie for undying. Your deck seems pretty solid.

Agent Green, if Razaketh is somehow partially behind the ambient necromancy on Amonkhet, maybe he would have some sort of abilities to do with zombies. Maybe reducing embalm costs, he could be white black or something, or maybe even an effect like that of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, immediately bringing back your creatures after they die, possibly "You may pay 0 for embalm costs". Just some thoughts.
