Another route would be cards like Workhorse

Also, Aetherworks Marvel is obviously amazing in this deck, and especially if you go the Artifact route like I mentioned above. Then you could do crazy things like Codex Shredder to get Living Death back and use it again and again. Get Junk Diver, Scarecrone, and Workshop Assistant, for even more recursion. There's a whole bunch of stuff I don't have that could make an artifact version viable, but I've never tested it:

Bottle Gnomes, Heap Doll, Hedron Crawler, Hex Parasite, Hope of Ghirapur, Manakin, Metalworker, Myr Moonvessel, Myr Sire, Opaline Unicorn, Pentavus(?), Scarecrone, Silent Arbiter, Stuffy Doll, Triskelion, Workhorse

I would swap out Workhorse for Crystalline Crawler. They are similar but the crawler makes any colour of Mana and is a 4 cmc as opposed to 6 cmc

ClockworkSwordfish on Alesha and Angry Little Dudes

A good trick for getting more punch out of Alesha is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Alesha. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!

Xion16 on Mikaeus Infinite Combo Absurdity

One of my favorite play's with my own Mikaeus deck is to get infinite mana by using either my Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Crystalline Crawler or Workhorse and then play out Carnage Altar or Viscera Seer or a different tutor to go find the Carnage Altar. Then you play out the

Once you got that, you have the black answer to Enter the Infinite and Omniscience

You are correct with all the steps. Workhorse can be in the graveyard before starting the loop, but you will need 6 mana to cast the commander.

Take off counter from Workhorse is a mana ability and it dies as a state-base action, which means there is no mechanic in magic that can interrupt it once you receive priority.

Ow sorry, you need Workhorse on the BF as well before step 1 starts.
