Dreamborn Muse Discussion
1 month ago
So our group has been running "theme nights" where once a month we all try to make decks under a certain theme. And to help out newer players/players on a budget we allow the entire deck on theme nights to be printed out and sleeved up in front of a normal commander deck.
We used this as the most recent one, and it had some mixed reviews. One person built 3 different decks. And it was really interesting to just draw cards and see what horrible things we all got. We absolutely got some cards we'd never played with before. And having the experience of playing with Knowledge Pool out while we all played terrible things was great. Or that we had 3 Howling Mines + Dreamborn Muse out and got worried about milling. With that said it did get a little slow, and we found it was more fun to do away with the point system and simply try to win with the bad deck you were given, however we kept the First Person Out rule. There were some really fun moments where we found things that were "overpowered".
I had fun, don't think it's something I'd want to do it regularly, but it was fun to do at least once and I can recommend people at least try it out for a new experience.

Mindslaver, while a bit more expensive (money-wise not cmc), is a good recurrable way to use your opponents against each other while Possessed Portal can lock other players out of the game while you are able to function normally, since you should be able to recast your sacrificed permanents or discarded cards.
I'v also found that Dreamborn Muse is an allstar in my deck, since it lets me get more cards in the bin when I have Muldrotha out, and can also punish opponents that keep their hands too full as it has the potential to mill them out over time.

Dreamborn Muse is an excellent option for you to replace Niblis. Mills you and your opponent, can use Harness the Storm to take advantage of the self-mill. Mind Sculpt is likely a better option than Compelling Argument since you'll rarely if ever want to cycle it. I've been sticking to cheap cards since you're concerned about the $10 price tag on Archive Trap, but if you do decide you want to raise your budget, you can look at Mesmeric Orb since it has the same advantage as Dreamborn Muse. And if you were willing to splash a third color you'd want to look at Glimpse the Unthinkable and Extirpate or Surgical Extraction

I've been thinking about adding Laboratory Maniac for a while. But for now, Temple Bell draws me into Loaming Shaman to keep me from having the smallest library. As for the other two, that's not really the direction I'd like to focus on with the deck. If I wanted to go hard into self-mill, Dreamborn Muse and Mesmeric Orb would be mainboarded. The goal of the deck is to stay under the radar until I win and dropping a Fleet Swallower seems counter-productive. I do appreciate the comment though!

I am just going to start off by saying that Muldrotha excels are enabling weird combos or recurring value plays. It also seems like you are playing a fairly cheaper deck so I won't bother with all the lands you could put in and other super expensive stuff.
One of the things you are missing are
1cmc: Caustic Caterpillar Elephant Grass any one cmc mana dorks Nature's Claim Carrion Feeder Skullclamp Unbridled Growth Nihil Spellbomb Pithing Needle All of the one cmc tutors such as Entomb Crop Rotation
4cmc: Null Brooch
now what to take out and why... In general I play in a faster meta where many of your creatures aren't able to even be played before the game ends
Cut: everything that is 5 cmc and above and every planeswalker except Shriekmaw Mulldrifter Deadeye Navigator this is because these card are simply not impactful enough and there are better alternatives around...
and here is just some fairly "bad" cards in your deck 4 cmc or less: World Shaper Vizier of the Menagerie Solemn Simulacrum Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Hostage Taker Dreamborn Muse Baleful Strix Nevinyrral's Disk Control Magic Reliquary Tower
you might even want to consider taking out Sol Ring but i guess it helps you play muldrotha
anyways good luck to you

Cheers! (Though you didn’t +1 yet ;)) i’m definitely going to try Night Incarnate, great addition i think. I think High Market is unnecessary with the two altars i’m already running? Or is there a particular reason to run it? Command Beacon is definitely on my wants list already, just not finding anyone to trade with though. I might cut Dreamborn Muse/Bounty of the Luxa/Courser of Kruphix i think.
Thanks for upvoting and commenting. Lots of new things i hadn’t come across yet. Flash + Protean Hulk is new to me, can you explain how it would work? Mindslicer seems mean as hell, especially after a Cyclonic Rift. Birthing Pod could work but i’m unsure whether it would require me to twist my deck too much. Buried Alive is a nice cheap replacement for Intuition i suppose, and i’m running more reanimation than i thought i was.
All in all some great suggestions and i’m likely to pick up some of them, cheers to both of you.

Thank you jessetaverne. Seal of Removal may be worth a try. I was thinking about testing the black seal for longer now, should really test that. Dreamborn Muse is one of those cards that seem perfect but totally underperform. I tested that card and it’s not worth a slot for this deck. Since Lion's Eye Diamond is so powerful, it’s the first card I tutor up with Trinket Mage or Tolaria West. In the majority of games I got the diamond, so I basically discard my hand every turn. With the diamond, Dreamborn Muse ends up doing almost nothing for me but milling my opponents. Not always a bad thing but it can backfire against another deck that uses his graveyard. Might be better in a deck without diamond.
Bear Umbra has become one of my favorite cards over time. It allows to play some really cool turns. In addition it is a really nice wrath protection. Makes it super easy for you to recover from wrath-effects, even better than Command Beacon. With a Pernicious Deed you can kill the board with your commander surviving and recovering much faster from it than other players.

Nice deck and thanks for explaining some of the wincons! Nice to see a different take on an awesome commander, +1. I could use some feedback / insight for my own list as well. Let me know what you think: Muldrotha, Tides of Madness (1 combo)
With regards to mystic remora, are people not playing enough noncreatures or are they playing around its cost? And how has Bear Umbra been?
