Shred Memory Discussion

No Grave Pact? Also I like more on board draw like Smothering Abomination, Dark Prophecy or Grim Haruspex. Then some more token producers would help, Xathrid Necromancer, Hanweir Militia Captain, Requiem Angel. I also have been enjoying Ravos, Soultender, and High Market in a B/W weeny deck, speaking of weeny decks, Dusk / Dawn works wonders in them, this card brings back most of your stuff while getting rid of everyone's fatties. Shred Memory can become another copy of Altar of Dementia or Blood Artist so its nice as another tutor. Also Nether Traitor (which can be tutored via Shred Memory) can generate infinite mana with your commander and Phyrexian Altar.

I play a Mikaeus-deck myself and I really like your work. But I think your mana-curve is not really that optimal. I play many ramp cards and only combo-pieces, which allows to make a turn 4 or turn 5 kill, nearly every time. Please also be aware, that Mikaeus gives all your creatures +1/+1, so things like Mindless Automaton don't work, even if you kill them manually, it's stuck with only one +1-counter. If you want to make your deck more consistent and more deadly, take out all cards that don't kill your opponents IMMEDIATELY with Mikaeus. Cards like: Abhorrent Overlord or Dusk Urchins all need preparation time, so think about cutting them. Also cards like Liliana of the Veil don't do anything for your combo in this deck and are better off in a good modern deck (Oh, I wish I had one myself :( ). Here are some cards that I highly recommend to you, in order to combo off faster, and better:
Fume Spitter (I love him but only in my starting hand)
Diabolic Servitude (maybe, but recommend)
Infernal Darkness (maybe, but always worth it)
Sidisi, Undead Vizier (maybe...)
Dread Return (maybe...)
Pentavus (The only 7-drop allowed in this deck)
Grinding Station (you have many artifact creatures then...)
You may ask: "And what shall I cut?"Every Planeswalker, they do nothing for you in this deck. Every damn card that costs 5 mana or more (Only Exceptions are Pentavus and Triskelion) . (Yes, you can also cut Sidisi, Undead Vizier, if you have enough tutors). And everything, that doesn't combo with Mikaeus in a way that doesn't kill all your opponents immediately. Your goal is to win the game as soon as Mikaeus hits the battlefield. Most of the time the disruption can't do anything, because you can combo off in response to that. And to make it as fast as possible, add all mana artifacts known to mankind to your deck. Thran Dynamo, Jet Medallion and so on, and so on. You don't need any removal or any Temporal Extortion or Imp's Mischief and stuff like that. Aim for a turn 4 kill and cut everything that doesn't support your idea. There will be no threats on turn 4 or five that need you to have any special removal.
Hope this helps out.
If you want, I can post a link to my Mikaeus deck. I don't like to do advertisement for my decks, so I do it, if you want to see my idea of a perfect deck.

I used to pla heartless together with Myr Retriever and had to have it early on as well.
In black there is also Shred Memory that can help find heartless

@HauntinYou - Thanks for the great comment!
Withered Wretch seems like a great idea and I'll have to find a place for it.
Fatespinner is another great card I'd love to add for pillow fort reasons.
It is a very nice combo but it would require taking away too much of the deck so I probably won't include it. I also like to have cards in graveyards for other cards in the deck.
Wrexial, the Risen Deep is a really good card, but it doesn't actually contribute to milling so I'm on the fence about adding it.
Nemesis of Reason is a card I've always wanted to add but just never really found a spot for so I'll have to see.
Riddlekeeper is another definite card I want to add!
I had Szadek, Lord of Secrets in the deck at one point and I even tried using him as the commander, but he never was able to do enough by the time I finally cast him. Maybe things have changed and I'll have to try him again.
Thanks again for the extensive comment!
@NV_1980 - Increasing Confusion was in the deck at one point as well as Paranoid Delusions but neither did as much work as I thought they would and they both only target a single player which does not work great in a 6-player game. As for Keening Stone, it is already in the deck and Sword of Body and Mind is definitely a card I want! Thanks!
@jon_hill987 - Thanks for the positive comment and upvote!
Thanks everyone for everything!

Hiya,This deck looks sweet! I have some cards that you maybe can add too:
- Withered Wretch (targeted removal against graveyards shenanigans)
- Fatespinner (pretty good protection, nobody wants to sacrifice main phases or carddraw)
- Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void or Planar Void (Instakill)
- Wrexial, the Risen Deep
- Nemesis of Reason
- Szadek, Lord of Secrets
- Shred Memory (exiles stuff from graveyards AND can tutor up important combopieces (e.g. both pieces of the duskmantle combo)

Because this deck wins through infect on your commander, I would highly suggest adding a tutor package. Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Beseech the Queen, Shred Memory, and Cruel Tutor are a couple of options to get the cards you need.

As an additional comment on the deck, Acidic Soil and Price of Progress are amazingly powerful cards! I frequently do a combined 40+ damage with them, usually taking out at least one opponent, and I can almost always make the damage asymmetric, even though I have only nonbasic lands. Solitary Confinement, Delaying Shield, Gideon of the Trials, and Selfless Squire all can prevent the damage, and Sun Droplet can regain that lost life over a few rounds. Damage per CMC, these cards smash serious face, and are probably the most powerful offense in the deck. Think about that, Price of Progress has a CMC of 2, is instant speed, is searchable by both Sunforger and Shred Memory, and it commonly does 40+ damage! That. Is. Insane.
