Karns_Pyromancer on Deny the queen at your own risk

Looks interesting. The amount of artifacts is uncommon/unique to say the least. Have you considered the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed/Mephidross Vampire+Triskelion/Walking Ballista package?

Main issues I see are the lack of Ancient Den, Darksteel Citadel, Great Furnace, Temple of the False God & Vault of Whispers. Also, consider Spire of Industry, Glimmervoid & Mana Confluence.

Your creatures look OK, Inferno Titan should be a Combustible Gearhulk or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship; Cataclysmic Gearhulk wouldn't hurt either. You're a little light on draw effects; Phyrexian Arena is good, as are a number of similar effects or even some walkers.

Removal I'd suggest a Hero's Downfall &/or Chaos Warp (you can hit yourself) along with abother wipe or two. Jokulhaups, Damnation, Day of Judgment, Armageddon & Yahenni's Expertise come to mind.

Stuff I think you're better without are Chrome Mox (it's a bad land); Mindcrank (you don't have enough redundency for it & it can really help graveyard decks); Wheel of Fortune (Teferi's Puzzle Box is better, creating a weird lock with Necropotence); Grim Monolith I'm not a fan of. Commander's Sphere is better because of color fixing + draw. If you think you really need the extra , try Ancient Tomb; Urrabrask I found to be pretty underperformed. Thalia was much better; Finally, Innocent Blood is a bad Smallpox, which is an amazing card that should not be overlooked or underestimated.

As always, these are just suggestions. Feel free to disregard or accept them as you feel you need to. O, I almost forgot to mention the allstar: Sword of Feast and Famine. Basically, it gives you an extra turn every turn. So, have fun with that.

Fair enough, we definitely have different play groups I think. I can't rely on creatures survival nearly as much since a wipe comes out every time anyone's board gets out of control. I like Sengir Autocrats because it fits the curve allowing you 4 things to sac the turn after you play yahenni. 4 creatures for 4 mana is extremely efficient.

One more thing I'd like to add. I saw you are planning on picking up a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One next. I bought both but Tbh sheoldred sits in my binder mostly because she draws so much hate and Mikaeus is great but once he's out everyone expects a Triskelion, Workhorse or some other combo. I know your playgroup may play less removal so this may not apply to you but Bitterblossom draws less hate, is harder to deal with and literally goes in any deck with black in it. I use it a lot more and I'd suggest if you're spending 20 dollars on a black staple start there. Just my 2 cents.

Can someone explain to me how removing the counters works with Mikaeus?? Like with Triskelion he comes in with 3 +1/+1 counters and he can remove them. However, Mikaeus acts as an aura so does that not mean he cannot take off the final +1/+1 or am I missing something crucial here. I really like the deck, I just hope someone can clarify this for me!

Spore Frog is already in the deck. Not looking to have an overwhelming amount of infinites, since the deck is mostly played in casual games. Triskelion would be nice though.

I have a similar build... you can check it out for ideas. Meren's Grave Shenanigans

I feel like a Savra build needs a crap-ton of sac outlets. Evolutionary Leap has been really good in my Meren deck. Phyrexian Altar is amazing, and opens up infinite combos with Gravecrawler.

As for possible combos, Triskelion combos with Mikaeus, and Necrotic Ooze, Triskelion, and Phyrexian Devourer combo as well.

Chainer is a fun guy! The list looks pretty good! I would recommend some more tutors so that you can be certain to get the cards that you need/want. Things like Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent,Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor and also since you already have Mikaeus, the Unhallowed a Triskelion would be great to just combo out and win. Also a Living Death generally speaking goes well in a reanimator type of deck. Unless you are playing against another graveyard deck of course! Lastly a Life's Finale works really well with Chainer. Especially if you know what decks you are playing against!

Is there a place where you can view the database of combos as a non-upgraded user?

Anyway, here are a couple combos I can think of on the spot:

Silence + Isochron Scepter

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion

Tunnel Vision + Spell Crumple/Hinder (what category does this fall into? it isn't "infinite", but it does win you the game, so it's better than most synergies)

It's probably just a clerical error but, just in case you weren't aware, Triskelion / Mikaeus combos without a sac outlet. Triskelion can ping itself with its last counter.
