Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

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 Discussion

Faux_Faux on Card creation challenge

2 weeks ago

Limits of Power

Legendary Artifact

Whenever a player casts a spell or activates an ability, all players vote "Yea", or "Nay". If "Yea" gets more votes, the spell or ability resolves as normal. If "Nay" gets more votes, the spell or ability is countered.

If the vote is tied, you may make another vote. If "Nay" gets more votes this way, exile that spell or permanent with the activated ability. If "Yea" gets more votes this way, that spell or ability is copied. You may choose new targets for the copies. If you do not, that spell or ability resolves.

"Ok, and that's Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion ...Any responses?" "As a matter of fact, I have but one: No." - Some random Timmy with a well-timed counter spell.

Just had one of those random sparks of inspiration, per se.

Next challenge is to create a card that warps a zone! (Changes how it functions, or interacts with things)

DevoMelvminster on Yawgmoth, the Mono Black King (Competitive)

Ahhh, that makes sense. Well, I don’t THINK Blight Mound or Nest of Scarabs goes infinite without undying creatures, so those may still be good options.

Cauldron of Souls is also a lot of fun, and avoids the clause going infinite since it’s persist, instead of undying. Even with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed it only guarantees some extra returns, rather than infinite returns.

Hey man, i notice you don’t have any undying creatures. These are the BEST creatures with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as hexan just slap them with a -1/-1 counter to reset them.

Butcher Ghoul , Sightless Ghoul , and Treacherous Pit-Dweller are great and could replace some of your other token creators. Or run big daddy Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to give anything undying. Gray Merchant of Asphodel with undying, and yawgmoth reseting it? You just won.

Cards like Blight Mound , and Nest of Scarabs also pop off hard with yawgmoth.

lagotripha on Callous Clerics (Budget)

I like the list. It has real potential.

I'm not a fan of doomed and null priest unless they are cheating out big creatures - the only big cleric I can think of is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Resurrecting multiple other clerics can be done in easier, less disruptable ways.

Many of the most powerful sideboard cards (mainboardable in many metas) are clerics, and that means that with 75 cards including sideboard, something that can really kick butt in a metagame is out there.

The option to ressurect Children of Korlis , Containment Priest , Ethersworn Canonist , Fiend Hunter , Grand Abolisher , Leonin Arbiter , Auriok Champion , Leonin Relic-Warder , Remorseful Cleric , Sanctifier en-Vec , Sin Collector - there are too many great clerics for this not to become something. Even stuff like Orzhov Pontiff and True Believer has seen sideboard play in the kind of creature-led deck it would be.

You have access to all the tools from soul sisters, with Soul Warden also getting Marauding Blight-Priest as another piece. Vizier of Remedies threatens a combo line. Efficient 1 drops means that tools like Orzhov Charm , Ranger-Captain of Eos and Proclamation of Rebirth look a lot better. Order of Whiteclay and oddities like Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip it offer more options than you'd expect, and it only takes one good interaction with them to turn them into powerhouse engines.

All of that before looking at w/b getting the best removal in the game means that some variant of this list will make a dent in a major tournament, once someone figures it out.

Vallaris on Commander Challenge! Build A Block …

If I were to build around a specific block, probably Scars of Mirrodin since Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon was my first ever Mythic. Kind of tempted to build that for real...

Second choice would be Innistrad block with Olivia Voldaren or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . This set I was far more familiar with and saw much more of that than SOM block. It's hard to choose a favourite between those two blocks, but I think I have to give it to Innistrad.

1empyrean Ikoria is definitely a good set to build around! My Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt deck was almost entirely cards from Ikoria when I built the rough draft of it (plus some from Theros Beyond Death). After editing, the majority of the cards were still from sets that came out that year (although to be fair, some of those included cards from Mystery Booster and 2020 Commander). Still, over half the non-land cards are Ikoria, and if I had to make a version that was Ikoria only, it could definitely be done and not be much different.

Last_Laugh on Marchesa, soon-to-be Queen

There's cards you're missing that help enable etb/death trigger abuse on everyone's turn instead of just once per round. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (feels like a 2nd Commander in this deck), Vigean Graftmage , Metallic Mimic , and Sage of Fables (Sage enables an infinite damage combo with Flayer of the Hatebound and Ashnod's Altar ).

More sac outlets should be a priority as well. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Goblin Bombardment , and Sadistic Hypnotist all deserve spots. The discard on Hypnotist pairs really well with Marchesa and a war of attrition approach even with the sorcery speed restriction.

ETB/Death triggers to consider: Baleful Strix , Vindictive Lich , Disciple of Bolas , and Vendilion Clique .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas and there's also a maybeboard and over 100 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

Azdranax on Pursuing Perfection, Part 3: Mono-Black …

1 month ago

These are pretty fun to read through, and while I don’t disagree with any of the choices or details shared, I do think mentioning Mikaeus, the Unhallowed as a king of mono-black is an omission that needs to be rectified, especially considering Sleazebag’s budget build is one of the all time most viewed and upvoted decks on the site: Mikaeus, Extreme Sub $20 Budget EDH

That said, I freely admit to my own bias on this commander, considering my own fully shiny version.
