Graveborn Muse Discussion

This looks like a great deck. A possible on-theme inclusion could be Carrion Feeder and/or Nantuko Husk? That way you can sacrifice things to protect them from exile effects, sacrifice your Graveborn Muse if it's about to kill you, and do all sorts of ridiculous things with Gravecrawler (especially if you have Rooftop Storm out - they can get infinitely large, you can create an infinite amount of Zombie tokens with Diregraf Colossus, draw your entire library with Kindred Discovery). If they are too budget and boring as sac outlets, another Zombie one would be Grimgrin, Corpse-Born.

Graveborn Muse has always been my favorite piece. It reminds me of a picture you would see in a grimoire about necromancy and the dark arts.

Hey, looks good, but I suggest more draw.

Budget draw to consider:

Sign and Whisper, draw two for two mana is good. Muse and Breaker might be the best budget Zombies for draw each is repeatable and they count toward their own abilities. Both also get better as you create and play more Zombies which is great with the Zombie Kalitas strategy.

Other budget cards to consider:

Even though Ghast isn't a Zombie it's a budget staple with black because of how well it can make mana. Harvester is a Zombie who's a repeatable Zombie and Swamp tutor. Animate and Victimize two of the best budget staple reanimation spells in black.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Disentomb
  • From Under the Floorboards
  • Rise from the Grave
  • Corrupt

  • Abattoir Ghoul
  • Gravedigger
  • Maalfeld Twins
  • Noosegraf Mob

  • Graf Harvest
  • Curse of Shallow Graves

Good luck with your deck.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Thanks for the suggestions, Carmasem! I dropped Fierce Empath and Graveborn Muse for Worldly Tutor and Vampiric Tutor respectively. I also updated the description to mention that my playgroup allows sideboarding.

Nice deck! A few suggestions: remove Graveborn Muse her ability is powerful, but will kill you before you can kill your opponent. Look into: Cryptbreaker and Lord of the Undead. Those two are awesome. Cryptbreaker will speed up the beginning of the game by making 2/2 zombie tokens and Lord of the Undead can bring back sacrificed monsters and give them +1/+1. If you want more tips look at my deck Vast Amounts of Zombie Tokens. +1 from me!

Sorry for the deluge, but Gravecrawler and Graveborn Muse are definite must haves for their utility.

Plus Gravecrawler makes pretty mean combo with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born.
