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

Thanks a lot AscendedLandfalls for your feedback. The Phyrexian Altar and the Ashnod's Altar are already there. They're listed under 'Ramp' :) I list cards with double roles only ones. Prossh is another example of a fodder creator and a sac-outlet!
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is wonderful aaand I own one copy! What holds me back is that in my expectation I will only be saccing tokens. In that case he's close to useless. Perhaps when I build the deck I will give it a try because if I'd ever run out of tokens to sac he provides a major solution.

Hey, if you're wanting to take your deck into 8 or more power level (PL) then you really need to decide how you want to win the game? At 8 PL or higher to win infinite combos are the way to go. Chainer doesn't need to be a piece of the combo, his discard can be an enabler. Since Chainer cares about creatures then using combos that involve creatures is best.
Some creatures to play for combos: Worldgorger Dragon, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Gravecrawler, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Walking Ballista, Murderous Redcap, Pitiless Plunderer, Dualcaster Mage, Reassembling Skeleton.
Some enablers for combos to play: Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder, Goblin Bombardment, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Twinflame or Heat Shimmer.
Some win conditions for the combos: Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Walking Ballista, Murderous Redcap, Zealous Conscripts, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dualcaster Mage, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Mayhem Devil, Goblin Bombardment, Bontu's Monument, Aetherflux Reservoir, Sunscorched Desert, Impact Tremors, Cut / Ribbons(Ribbions), Torment of Hailfire.
Expanding on loot can help to draw and get creatures faster into your graveyard: Buried Alive, Magus of the Wheel, Cathartic Reunion, Thrill of Possibility, Tormenting Voice, Azra Oddsmaker, Sire Of Insanity, Seize the Spoils.
Expanding on fast mana and/or big mana producers helps to have more mana to cast more spells which can assemble combos faster: Dockside Extortionist, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Crypt Ghast, Mana Crypt, Dark Ritual, Rite of Flame, Cabal Ritual, Burnt Offering, Sacrifice.
If you're interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice in another comment that includes further explaining the combos, more card advice as well as cuts to consider.
Good luck with your deck.

Tayam, Luminous Enigma could be a fun one with a side focus of +1/+1 counters if you want to include it but isn’t necessary.

One thing to mention on setup for this combo is Protean Hulk and a way to get it into the graveyard once can set this up all for infinite damage by itself. Play Protean Hulk and use any sac/destroy effect to get it into the graveyard. Search for Phyrexian Delver and Viscera Seer. Put those into play and bring Protean Hulk back into play from the Delver's trigger. Sac the Hulk and search for Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista. You then have a 3 combo pieces for infinite damage in one main phase. Complicated and the triggers can be responded to but it works.

Cards I'd suggest finding room for
Tutors like Forerunner of the Legion if you don't like the usual ones.
Mass reanimation like Twilight's Call Living Death or even Patriarch's Bidding I feel mass reanimation and using aristocrats to win on the spot is the most ideal way to win in this type of deck. Always run some if you plan to win with death triggers.
Specifically for Edgar Markov I'd run some sort of Xtra combat spell like Waves of Aggression just so he is the finisher he is if you need to cast him.

I love this build! Grimgrin zombie tribal that evolved into combo was my first commander deck, and it’s great to see it getting attention. Have you considered Puppeteer Clique, or River Kelpie as additional persist combos with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? Additionally Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar can provide you with infinite mana combos while also creating some redundancy in case someone deals with grimgrin.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on cuts, I've already started hunting down the cards I have. Spark Double, Carrion Feeder, Flayer of the Hatebound, Grim Haruspex, Oona's Blackguard, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and perhaps Butcher of Malakir in place of Vindictive Lich I can definitely do. Triskelion will be showing up in December for that sweet, sweet Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo too. Thank you for your suggestions, I'll be adding the rest to the buy list!
