Evilmirror on Hire A Tutor

With Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion you don't need a sac outlet because Triskelion can shoot himself.

Some suggestions Coat of Arms, Ghoulcaller's Chant, From Under the Floorboards, Zombie Apocalypse, Lord of the Undead, Grave Titan to name a few options.

With Mikaeus, the Unhallowed as your Commander you can add a Triskelion for a win-con. It's a cheap trick if you want to go that route.

Anything that spawns extra zombies or buffs zombies I find useful. Ramp is important to get the big guys out with any speed. The rest is just preference.

My Walking Dead is my Zombie deck.

This looks like a blast to play! (and not play against lol). Just throwing a couple of ideas out there for you to consider.

I love that you have Dark Depths + Vampire Hexmage , that's always a fun one. Have you thought about adding Triskelion to go with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed?

I assume that Diabolic Intent often just works better in your deck than Demonic Tutor, but Demonic Tutor does seem more powerful than Beseech the Queen, unless I am missing something. Vampiric Tutor is also awesome.

Toxic Deluge is probably the strongest black board wipe and I think you should be playing it. Perhaps over Crux of Fate?

Leyline of the Void doesn't have good synergy with Rise of the Dark Realms. Has that come up in play before?

You're playing a lot of tokens and AEther Snap seems like it would rot in your hand a lot since you don't want to nuke yourself. I see in the description that it does reset Infernal Darkness, but is it worth it?

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is always a great utility land in black. Just a few thoughts.

sonnet666 on Scorpion god combo (CEDH)

Your curve is a little high, and you're overthinking your win conditions.

Think about it this way:

Infinite mana + Walking Ballista = Win

Infinite mana + Your commander + A creature you can kill repeatedly = Draw your deck

If you draw your deck, then you're always going to run into Walking Ballista and you're always going to win. (Altar of Dementia would kill the table at this point too.)

So really, all you need to have a guaranteed win is infinite mana, plus any ONE of the following: Reassembling Skeleton, Tenacious Dead, Relentless Dead, Bloodsoaked Champion, or ANY undying creature.

Geralf's Messenger isn't even necessary for this combo to work. (The 3 black actually makes it a bit more unwieldy than a Pyreheart Wolf or Butcher Ghoul would be.)

That also means that all of the following are win-more and overkill: Mike-and-Trike, Kiki-Zealous, Redcap, Blood Artist, Purphoros, Impact Tremors, Goblin Sledder, Nim Deathmantle, Viscera Seer, Phyrexian Delver, Metallic Mimic, and Doomsday (you don't have support for this).

Cutting all that would lower your curve significantly (making Ad Nauseam work better) and allow you to include more tutors, better draw factor (Dark Confidant), and have back up combos that actually contribute to and synergize with your main strategy.

NarejED once made a great observation about how people think that the more combos they fit in their cEDH deck, the better it is, when really all they're doing is scattering their deck's gameplan, and making sure their combos don't have enough support to be reliable.

That's kind of what you're doing here. You have Worldgorger, an infinite mana combo, Mike/Trike, a counter / damage combo, Kiki/Zealous, a token / combat combo, and then Doomsday with no Doomsday cards. Those couldn't be farther from supporting each other.

Without a doubt you should go with Worldgorger, seeing as it plays so well with your commander, but if you do include a backup combo, it's probably best to go with something else that makes infinite mana, because that really seems to be the heart of this deck, or at least something that takes advantage of Scorpion Bro's counter effect. (My recommendation: just keep Mikaeus and take out Triskelion. Mike + Walking Ballista + sac outlet works just as well, and then everything has a use by itself.)

(Sidenote: It just occurred to me that this infinite mana plan runs super similarly to Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, except she doesn't even need an extra creature to kill. Maybe we should move her up...)

You could swap Triskelion with Walking Ballista for a more variable choice

Omfg I totally forgot about the buff Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives to non-humans, looks like I have to use Triskelion for the combo. At least I can still get infinite experience counters from the Walking Ballista by killing itself x_x

I think you're missing Triskelion. That's what makes the Phyrexian Devourer + Necrotic Ooze combo work.
