Undercity Informer lets you sac a token to go get a bunch more.

Haunted Crossroads lets you reload your library so if you cast or attack with Sidisi, MOAR TOKENS.

+1 from me, I really like the deck. If it were me, I might put a few more sacrifice outlets that are win conditions in it. Like... um...Fallen Ideal is hard to get rid of and useful so long as you got infinite creatures to sac' (same as, maybe Flesh-Eater Imp). To mill out all opponents, there is Altar of Dementia or Undercity Informer (the second one would require a mana altar too though to be really infinite [and hence useful]).

Or... big pillow fort with Martyr's Cause

Also, I know you got a lot of tutoring already, but here are two more: Idyllic Tutor and Plea for Guidance.

Ah... it might be funny to see Last Laugh kill the whole game by triggering it's own infinite loop and dealing an arbitrarily large amount of damage to all players (yourself included) :D.

So I discovered Horobi, Death's Wail.And I wonder if when I sacrifce a creature to let's say Ashnod's Altar or Undercity Informer.Do I target that creature and is it destroyed before I can sac it.Or is not targeted and I can still sac it?

I want it to know because I would like to play it in my EDH deck :)

Altar of the Brood you may now do this combo with any creature. Not 5 but still

Also, Undercity Informer whilst not a zombie is a better sac outletI would drop in Gravecrawler s for good measure

I think Duplicant is a bit too expensive for a clone, personally. If you're in Blue, then you have access to the really good, cheap ones. Often the benefit to a clone is that you can get a discounted beater or utility creature who can do something outside of your colors. Maybe Duplicant is better in nonblue decks. In place of Duplicant, I recommend Thassa, God of the Sea to help Mirko get a punch in. Otherwise, better clones are Clever Impersonator (versatile) and Phantasmal Image (cheap) and Stolen Identity (recyclable).

If you add in a more versatile clone like the Impersonator, then you could cut Sculpting Steel for Chromatic Lantern to gain some fantastic mana fixing (and Dimir flavor text!)

You could also cut Drift of Phantasms since it seems to be pretty vanilla and you really can't afford the slot for a creature that is a picky tutor at best and a bland wall at worst. Jace's Archivist or Undercity Informer might be a bit better at providing some utility that Drift just doesn't offer.

Ghost Quarter can thin out at least one land in a game and act as removal for a pesky Gaea's Cradle or whatever.

I'm not a fan of Altar of Shadow in this deck. Maybe better off would be a Jester's Cap or Avatar of Woe / Royal Assassin. Choose between additional land removal or recursive spot removal. 14 CMC to kill your first creature and 7CMC thereafter is way too prohibitive given that you're in black and have access to the cheapest removal in Magic. Play your strengths, I say. Otherwise it's like having a huge, slow Charcoal Diamond.

Think of a Memory Erosion over either Jace's Erasure or the Selhoff Occultist.Crumbling Sanctuary seems to be basically worthless in this deck, to be honest. When in a 4 player game you have a clock of 63 commander damage, 120 life as a beater deck, and a clock of 276 as a mill deck. For this reason, you should not try and prevent the most viable win condition when using a strategy that depends on your commander connecting. Maybe include a Strionic Resonator instead. That will let you dupe Mirko/ Nemesis/ Alchemist's abilities and help you land screw your opponents more effectively.

Army of the Damned? Yikes. For that much mana you should be winning the game. Try a Rite of Replication on Consuming Aberration, Rise of the Dark Realms or at least a boardwipe a la Life's Finale.

Altar of Dementia is sweet tech in a mill deck. If someone boardwipes you with huge stolen creatures on board, several zombie tokens, or an 80/80 Aberration just respond by saccing him to the Altar of the Mill God and erase the offender from the game.

Aqueous Form or Whispersilk Cloak over Writ of passage. You will want the scry and the ability to help your fatties sneak in hits. Despite the double use, the 2 power clause is just too restrictive.

If you want more ideas, look at my list. I run Mirko as an alternate flavor-centric general Welcome to the Undercity. Overall, I give you a +1 for the novel approach to milling. I had considered trying to make grinding more viable, but in UB there are few options available. You could also name this deck 'Mirko Vosk, the Mind Grinder'.

Thats a nice combo! But i think that you should put Mind Funeral instead of Undercity Informer. Funeral is way better. With this, you could add 3 lands! Yay
