Question about Open the Graves. How does it compare to Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? While Parallel Lives/Doubling Season synergy seems super sweet, Mikaeus recurring the creatures outright seems more powerful by itself. Is also a creature (upside and downside). I can see the reasons for running Open the Graves over Mikaeus, but I kind of want to hear some opinions on that.
I think Nim Deathmantle might just be better than Soldevi Digger/Reito Lantern. While you can't stage the cost between multiple turns, functionally Nim Deathmantle performs the same combos as Digger, for the same mana, without the need for Grenzo in play. At the least, I think Deathmantle's role is similar to them.
