Ever had a cockroach infestation? Now your opponents will know the feeling on a personal level..

Murderous Redcap and Viscera Seer is already annoying, and once you pair that with Melira, Sylvok Outcast, it's a loop of damage for an Insta win.Kitchen Finks is used in the same way to gain life infinitly, while it's not as useful as winning the game, it's still a nice runner up.Dictate of Erebos is in there for the long game, if your opponent somehow has managed to keep themselves alive with Worship , Platinum Angel, Platinum Emporeon, or any of the like, sacrificing one of your creatures forces them to do the same. Undying Evil and Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit are backups for Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Young Wolf is meant for early game pressure should you be unable to play anything required for the main win con. Fauna Shaman is a nice creature search if you have one too many unneeded creatures and can't find a Murderous Redcap in the end, even if you cant get off any infinite combos, swarming them with an army of small, deathless creatures gets pretty annoying. I.E. Cockroaches.

Now let's say you can't get any Melira, Sylvok Outcasts on the field or in your hand, due to either terrible luck or a pesky opponent with a Doomblade /Duress, not to worry, Both Undying Evil and Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit cause the same effect as Melira if used on a persist creature, so as long as Viscera Seer is there you're fine!

What about a lack of Murderous Redcaps in the same instance? At the moment, an Altar of the Brood and a Kitchen Finks works just as well, with a different win condition!

Now if Viscera Seer is scarce, Bloodthrone Vampire is a 2 drop that works as a perfect backup plan!

In the End, even if they manage to get rid of EVERY combo piece, persist creatures in themselves are pretty annoying, especially with a Heartmender on the field.

Inquisition of Kozilek is a great card for getting rid of dirupters and creature cleanse from your opponents hand, and Path to Exile works for some nice creature removal on your side!

The only real trouble I've had while playing this deck comes from Rest in Peace or someone playing a Crypt Incursion before one of my creatures comes back to the battlefield. So far the only answer to this is a lucky sideboard or a slow game. So far I don't see any way to counter a Crypt Incursion to the face other than hexproof.
Cards like Rest in Peace are extremely annoying in this deck, which is why thinks like Nature's Claim, and Duress are able to be switched. Things like Stony Silence are extremely useful against artifact decks (especially those pesky vehicle decks), Pithing Needle, and Memoricide are nice for game 2 to get rid of a card that really annoyed you, and Rule of Law is a nice counter to a control deck, seeing as 1 spell a turn won't hurt you that badly. Things like Mending Touch are used if your opponents are very intent on destroying your Viscera Seer/Melira, Sylvok Outcast. Leyline of Sanctity are the only real counters to Crypt Incursion I have besides Duressing it. Phyrexian Unlife speaks for itself.
