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. Tokens cease to exist before they can be returned.)

Here's another one that looks like it would work well for the consistent persist ability Grumgully, the Generous

So far I would have:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Rhythm of the Wild Master Chef Uncivil Unrest Grumgully, the Generous

That's some pretty decent odds of getting recurring Persist creatures! Oh yes, I also added two scarecrows to the list, Rattleblaze Scarecrow as well as Wingrattle Scarecrow. a bit on the mana heavy side, but they should help.

I've also updated the list to show some changes, such as the removal of the tutors and some other tweaks.

I should point out that cards like Massacre Girl and Tragic Slip will not activate Hapatra, as these cards do not put -1/-1 counters on anything. As a side note, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combines very well with a Hapatra deck.

Cryptolith Rite can enable your commander's created tokens to immediately tap for mana, allowing a few more infinite combos.

I've done a lot of infinite comboing in my Esper ETB deck, and one tip someone gave me that was really helpful is: make sure your infinite combo pieces do work on their own. Basically: "Would I use this card outside the combo?" If the answer is "no", you can probably find a stronger combo.

a negative synergy I saw is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Maskwood Nexus. The Nexus will turn all your creatures into Humans, disabling Mikaeus' last ability. Really, all of the tribal synergies here feel kind of out of place. You have four cards (Champion of the Perished, Ayula, Conspiracy, and Maskwood Nexus) that wouldn't be in here without the others.

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas only has 5 targets in your entire deck, great candidate for replacement.

I'd recommend taking a look at some other Marchesa lists for some ideas on random staples here.

Unspeakable Symbol is an absolute must have here. Don't add counters to everything, just in response to removal or to abuse any etb/death trigger.

Sneak Attack is amazing here. If you have a sac outlet, sac the creatures before your end step so they return on your end step instead of the next player's end step.

Sage of Fables/Metallic Mimic/Vigean Graftmage/Mikaeus, the Unhallowed all allow you to immediately protect creatures and/or abuse etb/death triggers on everyone's turn.

Grim Haruspex is really good at drawing cards here.

Kardur, Doomscourge is a hilarious (and kinda mean) etb to abuse.

Chaos Warp and Canoptek Tomb Sentinel (along with Feed the Swarm) are your only answers for problematic enchantments that shut Marchesa down like Solemnity or Rest in Peace.

I could go on, but feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade isn't really a zombie commander. So Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Are you considering building a new mono black deck?

hey griffstick, if you had to choose between Korlash, Heir to Blackblade or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for your zombie deck, which would you choose?

carpecanum, thank you for the awesome advice, no clue how I missed Isochron Scepter, because even I know it’s popular in commander. Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat are there specifically for the cheeky combo with one of them, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and one other non-human creature. Upon review, I will likely be removing Blood Artist as he’ll kill me before multiple opponents. I will definitely take Arcane Lighthouse because otherwise some strategies shut down the turning men into food degeneracy. I’ll also try and make room for the Rabid Bite and similar cards, as well as some board wipe protection. Thank you again!

Hi Edgardxcore, thanks for reaching out and asking for my opinion, it's appreciated. You've chosen a nice first Jund commander in Henzie, the blitz ability is an amazing perk in a creature-heavy army.

To be honest, I'm not sure I would recommend finishers for your deck, but one that does come to mind and could become quite the powerhouse in a blitz-deck, would be Kresh the Bloodbraided as she grows so powerful with each successful blitz you do. Can't be summoned with blitz though, as you want to keep her alive.

Anyways, I've found Jund's strengths rely more on wearing opponents down through resilience; lots of recursion and forced saccing. Two creatures that enable these and immediately come to my mind for a Henzie deck, would be Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (who will basically let non-human creatures you just blitzed return unharmed (and stronger!)) and Butcher of Malakir (who forces all your opponents to sac when you blitz something).

These are just some initial thoughts. Let me know if you have more questions or you're looking for additional options.
