Sire of Stagnation Discussion

God I almost forgot about Phenax. Tried really hard to make him work in standard when he first came around. I think you certainly have something going on here, but I'm not 100% sure wall tribal is the way to go about it. I would try to look more towards cards thats power/toughness care about how much is in the opponent's graveyard. Some good examples could be Consuming Aberration , Wight of Precinct Six , Mortivore , The Haunt of Hightower , Nighthowler , and Sewer Nemesis . I like the untapping options you have going, and I would recommend considering adding in some more draw + mill options like Sire of Stagnation , and Jace's Archivist , as well as including some copy mechanics like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Gigantoplasm , and Clever Impersonator to have more good stuff going at all times. Hope that all helps. Good luck on the milling!

Trying to accommodate so many mechanics in a deck can be a hindrance. In my opinion, mill is pretty weak in multiplayer EDH because there are a ton of cards that can recover cards from the yard or just shuffle back in. On top of that, most mill cards only target one player. If I were you I would tune the deck to be mostly mill or take out most of the mill cards aside from maybe Undead Alchemist . If you want to go into mill, it is a go big or don't go at all kind of thing. If you want to go mill you should add cards like Mindcrank , Mind Funeral , Sire of Stagnation , Jace, Memory Adept , Nephalia Drownyard , Duskmantle, House of Shadow , and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as well as cards that can copy spells on the stack as to target multiple players similar to Naru Meha, Master Wizard , Echo Mage , and Meletis Charlatan .
I'm also not a big fan of Doubling Cube in this deck as I don't see it being very useful most of the time. I think it could be replaced by a better mana rock or mana multiplier like Chromatic Lantern , Thran Dynamo , Caged Sun , Gauntlet of Power or just a different card all together if mana isn't usually an issue. The same goes for Fabricate . It is definitely a good card, but you do not have enough targets to justify running it to me. I would run Diabolic Tutor over it as it only costs 1 more mana and can tutor for anything. I don't see a lot of recursion to be running Entomb . If you are just trying to thin your deck then run Buried Alive , though, again, none of your creatures benefit from sitting in your graveyard and you only a couple of ways to get them back out.
The land base looks pretty solid. I would suggest you try to pick up a Watery Grave .
Not sure how you or your play group feel about infinite combos, but adding Triskelion to the deck along side the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed you have is infinite damage to everyone provided no one has a way to interrupt it.
If running all these mechanics are fun for you then keep it as is; I'm not trying to tell you how to have fun. My suggestion to you is that you try to focus your deck to do only a few things because when you run all these mechanics you spread yourself pretty thin and maybe you are trying to get a bunch of zombies and you draw something you don't need as it is for a different mechanic. Running multiple cards that do the same thing is very advantageous in EDH for consistency. An example is if you want to run Animate Dead , you should also run Dance of the Dead and Necromancy . They do the same thing and increase your chance of getting a card that has that effect.
If you want, you can check out my UB Zombie deck, Zombies for days. It creates and recycles zombies. It might give you some ideas. There are also a lot of other decks you can find on this site or can google and take inspiration from.

I like how you're using the ingest mechanic, I've been wanting to try it in edh for a while. I feel like Sire of Stagnation would fit in nicely here, maybe in place of one of those one drops. Also consider Fathom Feeder and Blight Herder .

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.
The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.
Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

UnderworldFiend Craterhoof Behemoth is out of my price range, and Oblivion Sower is a cast trigger, not an etb, but I like it’s synergy with Sire of Stagnation . I don’t know how I can justify putting it in for synergy with one card tho, much less what to take out. I do like the idea of Inverter of Truth and Laboratory Maniac , although I’m thinking replace the Maniac with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . To make this happen, what 3 cards should I remove?
