sonnet666 on competitive mikaeus

Ok, so lets talk about main game plan before we start nitpicking particular cards.

I've never tried to build Mikaeus myself, but from what I know about combo decks there are three categories of pieces that make the deck work: 1) Creatures that can re-undie with Mike's ability; 2) Sac outlets to feed them to; and 3) Death triggers that can create a win condition.

From the looks of this deck, what you tried to do was to load up on as many of each these as you could to get the best chance of drawing into the ones you need. Here's what you have of each category:

  1. Walking Ballista, Triskelion, Crystalline Crawler, Chainbreaker, Spincrusher, Banewhip Punisher, Wingrattle Scarecrow, Tatterkite, Plague Belcher, Skinrender, Lingering Tormentor, Pith Driller, Soulstinger, Cinderhaze Wretch, and Carnifex Demon. 15 Total

  2. Altar of Dementia, Blasting Station, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Viscera Seer, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodthrone Vampire, Carrion Feeder, Spawning Pit, and Tainted AEther. 10 Total

  3. Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Altar of the Brood, Grim Haruspex. 4 Total

So, all in all, 29 of your deckslots are focused on nothing except your main win condition. That's a lot of bloat for a deck that needs to ramp at least to 6, and should be packing disruption aimed at its opponents on top of that. Considering you're in the color with the best unconditional tutoring, I think you can get away with cutting a lot of those redundant combo pieces, and right now the first category is what you have the most of. I'd say anything that doesn't reduce the need for additional pieces or generate infinite mana is worth cutting.

I'd cut all of the following:

For more tutors, draw, and ramp. (That would also lower your curve to where Ad Nauseam is viable.) Leave Banewhip Punisher, Chainbreaker, and Spincrusher since they're the cheapest, and Banewhip Punisher is semi-decent removal.

I also recommend Skullclamp in terms of draw, as it goes very well with the reccruing creatures and sac outlets. You could also consider a bit of a reanimator strategy to get your combo pieces, since black can tutor to the graveyard.

I did. I replaced it with a Tatterkite sadly. I ended up not owning one and when I went to buy one, I didn't realize how expensive he was. I still want him though and will add him in the future. Was thinking I could replace him with a temporary Refurbish or even add Refurbish permanently, since you can purposely let your commander hit the graveyard and get him back for only 4.

How does Tatterkite work with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed?

@usaDiabetic Thank you so much! Ill expand my black inventory with these awesome (and budgety) cads you have suggested!It will be alot more fun to play. Tatterkite was already recomendet to me beacuase of the Insta win combo with cards such as Grinding Station+Any Sac outlet(but on itself is pretty nice in that constellation) , or Walking Ballista, Pith Driller and Triskelion(Note: If somebody in my playgroup wins via infinite hes either beaten up verbally for the next couple weeks or the drinks for the evening are on him.)

ok, take 2...hopefully I remember to post this comment before closing the window.

Tatterkite will never die with Mike out, so he's an infinite sac outlet. Retribution of the Ancients can remove counters to duplicate this effect with all your creatures as long as you have black mana. Similar effect with Carnifex Demon

Crypt Ghast is one of blacks best ramp cards. Sidisi, Undead Vizier can tutor twice by exploiting herself.

Dictate of Kruphix and Grave Pact for more sac value.

Just some more random value, Solemn Simulacrum, and Ob Nixilis Reignited.

Finally maybe get another piece of protection for Mike like Lightning Greaves in there.

I feel like this deck needs your feature card!

I imagine an aggressive combo deck like so:Phyrexian Unlife (possibly one of my all time fav arts, btw) and Ad Nauseam, draw your deck with it and Solemnity on board, Dump your mana rocks like Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, free mana like Simian Spirit Guide, cast Seething Song, playing Fateful Showdown for lethal.

Alternatively, you could just do the Modern route and Lightning Storm.

I understand this shakes the entirety of your strategy outside of massive amounts of life loss.

If you wanted a classic repetitive ETB trigger, Impact Tremors with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Tatterkite.

if you're looking for creatures that won't ever die while Mikaeus is out, here is a list.

Spincrusher

Chainbreaker

Wingrattle Scarecrow

Lingering Tormentor

Tatterkite

Plague Belcher

Soulstinger

Baleful Ammit

Puppeteer Clique

Cinderhaze Wretch

Carnifex Demon

Crystalline Crawler (This card can also give you infinite mana)

Now you just need sac outlets.

Also, Black Market for mana and Noosegraf Mob might be helpful. (When the mob runs out out of counters it will come back with undying)
