Legendary Creature — Zombie Cleric


Whenever a Human deals damage to you, destroy it.

Other non-Human creatures you control get +1/+1 and have undying. (When a creature with undying dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed occurrence in decks from the last year

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Discussion

cfost827 on Karador EDH Deck (Hulk/Boonweaver Combo's …

1 week ago

TriusMalarky - haha thanks!! Yeah, I'm basically just retooling the whole Karador deck to make it more fun for everyone. I removed all the hate bears (besides Teeg) and all the tutors so far, along with Hulk and Boonweaver + Pattern Rebirth/Academy Rector.

I took whatqwerty advice and added Spore Frog and Caustic Caterpillar. I'm also basically going more of an Toolbox/Reanimator route adding in some creatures to win through combat and that are powerful. Kokusho, the Evening Star, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Craterhoof Behemoth, Massacre Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Luminous Broodmoth, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, etc.

Also, I'm adding more utility cards and things that basically just always blow up my opponents stuff. Aura Shards, Plaguecrafter, Abrupt Decay, Ravenous Chupacabra, Krosan Grip, Despark, etc.

Just going to try making some of those updates for now - still trying to construct the deck a different way.

But I appreciate all the feedback! I'm open to anymore suggestions all :)

RambIe on Ad Nauseam Wincons

2 weeks ago

quote - RNR_Gaming "RambIe - you should be building around Ad Nauseam you're not just putting a random 20+ cards in your hand."

quote - gatotempo "Ad Nauseam usually comes down on t3, draws 20-30 cards, and puts of mana rocks into play. I then use a couple of tutors to find Skirge Familiar, then discard a bunch of cards to have ~20 mana. "

im not building a deck.. im trying to provide a solution to a current issue,
you don't have to Ad Nauseam to all 3 peaces of the combo - out of the 20 cards you only need 1 or 2 peaces of the combo and tutors for the rest which is why i'm also suggestion the use of Living Death because now it can be tutored to the grave yard also leaving a lot of redundancy to fetch
even though Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista + Viscera Seer is a three card combo
it only takes two cards to fire off Buried Alive & Living Death

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can head a deck of non-humans.

Poisoner6 on Korvold, Fae-Cursed King of Feasts

3 weeks ago

I would like to start by saying I love the deck and korvold is a ton of fun to play although I see a few key cards missing from the deck in my opinion. I have my own Korvold deck and I have to say that it is probably one of my more competitive decks however I did skimp on the mana base. Korvold, Fae-Cursed King_1 This is my current list and depending on how your group feels about infinite combos and what, not this deck is a ton of fun. There are a few combos with Dockside Extortionist and Temur Sabertooth making infinite mana and drawing your deck out to get direct damage with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Murderous Redcap since the persist and undying trigs cancel each other out you just need any sac outlet and then you can do infinite damage. Again this depends on your group's stance on comboing out. Regardless I would definitely add Mikaeus, the Unhallowed since he allows for multiple sac triggers and he's kinda a nice card to have.

enpc on Should Infinite Combos Need to …

1 month ago

So there are two distinct things going on here and I think that they can be addressed separately.

In answer to your overarching question, "Should infinite combos need to be shown?" the answer is a yes, but with the caveat of "if a player requests it". This is for two reasons:

  1. Can your deck actually do what you're describing? Do you still have access to the cards the form your combo? Do you even have the cards you're describing in your deck? These are questions which should be asked, depending on the trustworthiness of a player. This is not targetting you specifically, however there are a lot of really crappy people who play MtG and will do just about anything to "get the win" (which at times may include outright cheating). Hell, the player you were up against was literally trying to pull that kind of crap with you, hoping that you'd either get sick of having to explain or would leave prematurely so they could steal the victory. I once watched a pro game where a player was trying to get someone DQ'd becuase they didn't explicityly announce mana being added to their pool from unmorphing a Rattleclaw Mystic.

  2. Does the combo actually work? Do you know how it works? I have seen poeple play a combo in their deck and not know how it works. I believe it was Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion and the attitude was "I get these two cards and win, right?" Now most of the time, people would scoop becuase it was a well known combo. But in this case, the plyer didn't know how the loop worked and so techincally couldn't demonstrate it. I have also similarly seen people form infinite mana combos with no way to actually spend the mana. Again, that's nice that you can generate infinite mana but if you can't do anything with it then it's the next person's turn I guess.

Now, for very straight forward infinite combos that are well known, I don't think that many people would bother forcing you to play the combo out or even explaining it. But you should be able to if somebody asks, especially if it's not a simple combo.

Onto your point of frustration - the person you're playing against was most likely being a dick and I can empathise with you. I'm sure most MtG players have had a game with "that" person and for the average Joe, they aspire to not be "that" person. And it's even more frustrating when you deal with people who do in fact employ the "win by any means" strategy, as it can leave a really bad taste in your mouth from having to deal with them. And then for those people, the anonymity of online play just magnifies said personalities. (that was a lot of ands)

I do think that there is also a not insignificant portion of the MtG community as a whole who don't grasp a lot of the interactions of the game. And I'm not even talking about stuff like APNAP or layering, I'm just talking about having a combo that has like 5-6 cards working together.

However, it is important for players who are better educated in the game help these people in their understanding and not to belittle them. But there is also a responsibility for less educated player to bury their heads' in the sand and demand that everything is spelled out for them. I'm pretty sure that "Explain it like I'm five" and "the interactions of Magic cards and all the surrounding rules" don't mesh well together.

TL;DR: the person you were playing aginst is probably a crappy perons, but it's important that we still explain combos when asked (assuming that people aren't just doing it to be crappy people).

Housegheist on Otrimi, Pinnacle of Evolution

Have you tried to include Thrun, the Last Troll? One of the best creatures to mutate on IMO. Also i gave Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon a try because of his regeneration effect. In my playgroups Endling was a high valued target to mutate on because of his Undying effect... one of my opponents had Mikaeus, the Unhallowed which i copied with my Volrath, the Shapestealer - my Endling was undieable from that on :D Adding Muldrotha, the Gravetide would give your mutate-creatures in your graveyard a 2nd chance.


My Sultai-Mutate-List is an older one, have to actualize it.

Mr.Beaver on DeathTouch Pingers ( I NEED HELP Please !!)

Similar to the above comments, I also see a lot of redundancies (which is a pretty common mistake for a first commander list). With decks like this, I think it would be easier to control your own board than your opponent's, for example focusing on giving more -1/-1 is probably more reliable than hoping your deathtouch creatures clear the board. I can't really add more details that haven't been said already. However, you might want to look into cards like Black Sun's Zenith, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Blood Artist to make sure you can keep getting resources from your commander. If you want some more help narrowing down your deck/focusing on a mechanic, just let me know and I'll be happy to (try to) help!

7thZombieman on Tiny in Size, but he'll be your Demise

Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension / Leyline of the Void + Helm of Obedience / Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Cinderhaze Wretch These are some solid combos for discard tribal, and usually a quick closeout for a game.

I'd leave the Painful Quandary in and opt out Oppression. Every time I've played Oppression, its fucked me in the long run. Library of Leng is better than Anvil of Bogardan in my opinion, since it only applies to you. Definitely include that Sangromancer, crazy value in a discard deck. Mind Rake > Mind Rot just cause of the overload cost. Some cards to think about adding in Imp's Mischief, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Syphon Mind, Mind Twist, Archfiend of Ifnir, Banshee of the Dread Choir. Good lookin deck though! Hope these suggestions can help you out
