Graveborn Muse Discussion

dlaxw7 on The Scarab God Makes His Triumphant Entrance

4 days ago

I know Paradox Haze works really well with The Scarab God, but there aren't a whole lot of other cards in your deck that combo with it. Might consider adding in some cards that trigger during your upkeep, like Phyrexian Arena and Graveborn Muse for card draw and Tombstone Stairwell, which goes crazy with Plague Belcher and Vengeful Dead. Plus, you can stack the triggers so that the Stairwell triggers before Scarab's trigger and wreck face with it.

Necropotence is another great card for drawing, but exiling on discard kinda sucks.

Also, lands that make any color mana really help The Scarab God's eternalize ability in the event that you want activate abilities outside of your color identity, so throwing in City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Exotic Orchard might be pretty sweet. Chromatic Lantern may also give you some ramp, but taking up a spot in a 2 color deck just for that effect may not be worth it.

Other than that, the deck looks pretty sweet. +1 from me!

Some changes I thought off:

Mishra's Bauble > Sylvan Library much better draw\deck control.

Rescue from the Underworld > Defense of the Heart most likely opponent will have 3 creatures.

Grim Haruspex > Graveborn Muse seems like a better card draw, need to see if I have enough zombies\not too much.

Soul of the Harvest > Grave Titan feels like a good change as I need zombies and I need more creatures for sacrifice.

Thanks for all the upvotes, much appreciated! :)

Thinking of including those cards: Recurring Nightmare,Graveborn Muse,Sylvan Library.

Would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

I said I would get back to you on cuts and here they are...

Phyrexian Crusader, I have never gained any momentum from playing him in a non-infect deck. Unless you are pumping him and giving him double strike, he's not usually seen as a threat. Also, infect draws hate. When people see one infect card they assume you have others.

Adaptive Automaton, this seems like a cop-out. It's a vanilla tribal king that doesn't play into any particular strategy except buffs. I'd rather have something like Corpse Harvester or Unbreathing Horde on the draw in the late game.

Thassa, God of the Sea, great card in a lot of respects but the unblockable for a few creatures doesn't carry as far when you are attacking with a horde. For evasion, try Wonder, Eldrazi Monument, or Akroma's Memorial. For card advantage, try Rhystic Study, Graveborn Muse, or Disciple of Bolas.

No Mercy, it seems like this is the only purely defensive card here. Maybe remove for a sac outlet or a dedicated mill. Call to the Grave seems like it would better suit this slot.

Force_of_Willb, I really appreciate the comment and suggestions. I do agree Beacon of Unrest is better than Rise from the Grave. However, the point of this deck isn't really to draw cards. Also, with the amount of tokens this deck has the possibility of making Graveborn Muse could potentially backfire and leave you weakened/dead.

In the early stages Undead Alchemist was under consideration because my friend built a deck around him and it totally works, but after a while I just felt that he didn't quite fit the deck. However, now that The Scarab God is out I feel Undead Alchemist could synergize well with him. This means that Undead Alchemist might finally have a home in this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Beacon of Unrest over Rise from the Grave

Do you find this has enough card draw? what about Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, or Distant Melody

I also am a fan of Undead Alchemist which generates a ton of tokens in multiplayer, but my decks point is to Mill

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick

Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections

or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough
