Graveborn Muse Discussion

I would rather be running Graveborn Muse rather than warchief.

Ok, changes made: In Garruk's Wake in, Forced March out. Palace Siege in, Macabre Waltz out. Liliana of the Dark Realms, Dread, and Graveborn Muse are in, and out go Death Denied, Dutiful Return, and Foul Renewal. Lands in are Vesuva and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for Subterranean Hangar and a Swamp.

That's where Volrath stands for now. I think I will be adding a Thespian's Stage in the future, as well, and I will keep looking into the other suggestions the more I play it and see how it works out. I hope that I haven't pushed my mana curve too high for it to be consistent.

If you think I should have subbed something different, please offer up more suggestions!

looks like a solid deck! I have a couple ideas that i hope will improve your deck!

Nephalia Academy, Radiant Fountain and Waterveil Cavern could be upgraded, maybe Terramorphic Expanse, Nephalia Drownyard, Drownyard Temple, Bojuka Bog

Chronic Flooding, Corpse Churn, Strategic Planning, Forbidden Alchemy, Mesmeric Orb could be a clever way of adding cards to the graveyard

Sol Ring is a stable in commander, more mana rocks? Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus

Raise Dead dosen't seem strong enough. maybe Beacon of Unrest?

Exhume, Gnawing Zombie, Grave Peril, Gravepurge, Moan of the Unhallowed could be possible cuts

Secrets of the Dead is awesome! maybe swap for or add River Kelpie as well!

Fleshbag Marauder is super good!

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great!

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon seems out of place

Rise from the Tides seems out of place as well

Call to the Grave is very good

Death Baron, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Noxious Ghoul are some zombies that i think could improve your deck!

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet isn't a zombie but makes them and provides a good effect for commander!

Maybe add a some sources of life gain as well, Whip of Erebos is a good one

Havengul Lich is amazing with Rooftop Storm!

Ok, updates coming. I've placed a card order, and this is what I have coming in:Dread, Graveborn Muse, Liliana of the Dark Realms, In Garruk's Wake, Palace Siege, and two good lands, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Vesuva. I decided to splurge just a little bit in the hopes of pushing this deck's performance up. I've always liked playing black, and Volrath is a lot of fun as a commander, so I'm going to make it worth while.

The lands will be easy to sub in, but the others I will take any suggestions on. In Garruk's Wake will take the place of Forced March. I'm thinking Gravedigger might get cut as well, as I have more than enough graveyard bounce spells, I think.

Comments and suggestions are welcome, please!

is Haakon, Stromgald Scourge worth it for Nameless Inversion and Glen Elendra Liege? I don't think Glen Elendra Liege is worth it at all even with Haakon.

Not sure if you have enough support for the Zombie subtheme. I'd go one way or the other with it. My initial thought is you're not getting enough value from it and you should either add more or get rid of it entirely. Gisa and Geralf, Graveborn Muse, Possessed Skaab

Dralnu scares me. I can see a deck being built around him but as a part of the 99, I think he'd backfire more than help.

Dragonlord Silumgar, Oona, Queen of the Fae, and Sire of Stagnation all seem a bit too much good-stuff for my tastes.

Sheoldred, the Whispering One rarely works out for me. Either she dies/exiled quick or she gets stolen/copied and it turns bad for me.

Hedron Crab might be a touch too slow compared to your other mill effects

I really want to like Disciple of Deceit (especially with Phenax) but it's the same mana cost. If it were same mana cost or less, I'd be all about it.

Can you get enough value out of Reassembling Skeleton?

Think Twice seems like a slam dunk replacement for Forbidden Alchemy

Ok! Let's begin with my usual disclaimer: I'm making all suggestions without regard to budget, since I don't know what you're working with. If you've got a particular upper limit (that eliminates most of the cards I suggest) that you want me to consider, let me know and I'll come back.

Creatures:

I'd be really pushing hard in the Zombie theme of this deck, given it's power. A non-zombie creature has to be really amazing to warrant a spot, or at least produce zombies a la Kalitas, and while Crypt Ghast fits the bill, Ascendent Evincar really doesn't. It's a small buff for a big price, and you can't recast him with your commander. Similarly, Paragon of Open Graves should probably go, and Wonder should probably go.

If exchange, here are some quality zombies to consider:

Undead Alchemist - it makes your guys mill rather than deal damage, but for every creature card that hits a graveyard, you get another zombie.
Apprentice Necromancer - not only is he a zombie, he reanimates more zombies for you! Plus, he only makes you sacrifice on end step, so you can keep reanimating as long as you want!
Noxious Ghoul - works as a mini-board wipe for your opponents, particularly if you're able to drop multiple zombies per turn.
Cryptbreaker - another zombie that makes more zombies, it also provides a huge source of card advantage once you've got enough zombies.
Dread Slaver - why only play with your creatures when you can play with everyone else's too?
Graveborn Muse - be careful, because she can easily end up killing you. But still, that's a TON of cards, and who even cares if you have to discard, amirite?
Havengul Runebinder - alright, you caught me, this guy's not a zombie. But he makes zombies! And makes all your zombies permanently bigger! By as much as you want!
Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Another non-zombie. But if you can protect her (spoiler - you can!) and she ults, you'll have zombies for days. FOR DAYS. ZOMBIES. FOR DAYS.
Lim-Dul the Necromancer - What? Still MORE non-zombies? But this guy lets you keep your zombies around, AND lets you steal other people's stuff. Seems good.

Enchantments:

So here's the thing. Conspiracy doesn't do much, even if you DON'T drop all the non-zombies I mentioned. It alters a handful of creatures in a not-super meaningful way - I mean, they get the buffs your regular zombies enjoy, but the non-zombies aren't really being run for their combat skills, but that their abilities.

Instead, try Endless Ranks of the Dead. You'll love it.

Also, Grave Pact and Greed (or Erebos, God of the Dead). Quality cards.

Definitely Go:

Replacement Ideas:

Maybe Add:

Ghost Quarter is also strictly worse than Strip Mine

Everglades could be replaced by Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to complete the mana acceleration package and it's probably worth running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so your few nonswamps count for your doublers.

There's plenty of ideas here: https://edhrec.com/commanders/mikaeus-the-unhallowed
