Graveborn Muse Discussion

Attila on Gisa and Geralf Zombie Tribal EDH

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.

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.

Graveborn Muse is great to keep your hand full. Combos nicely with Rooftop Storm.

Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.

Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.

Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.

Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.

Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

Soulless One and Shepherd of Rot are both good cards to consider as well.

Door of Destinies makes all your Zombies much stronger. Not to mention the shenanigans with Army of the Damned.

Sedraxis Alchemist is this deck's version of Man-o'-War. It also combos with Rooftop Storm and Door of Destinies for infinite p/t for your zombies.

Thanks for your suggestion imperium0214 I really like the idea and that I wouldn't have to tap Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter or use 3 mana; I had him in here for the ability to create new vampires, but Grave Betrayal seems more reliable. I also like the idea of Grave Betrayal with Graveborn Muse. I'll definitely test that out. I may need to add Reliquary Tower and Phyrexian Reclamation.

Nice looking deck friend! Seems like a great upgrade on the precon. I have a few quick suggestions.... Cathars' Crusade looks great to me with so many creatures to trigger Edgar's eminence ability. Odric, Master Tactician and Brutal Hordechief are great cards for controlling the attack phase. Maybe some more card draw engines like Underworld Connections and Graveborn Muse to help keep the juice flowing. Even Queen Marchesa could be a great card for the deck, she even seems kinda vampiric to me somehow. If you need removal Hero's Downfall, Utter End and Vindicate are basically as good as it gets. Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton are easy includes in most all tribal decks. And last but certainly not least Solemn Simulacrum is at its best in non-green decks like this one. Happy gathering!

Hey, Cool deck!

Maybe swap indulgent tormentor for Graveborn Muse?

Why are you running the artifact lands? Seems like you're just opening yourself to land destruction in the form of artifact kill for no benefit

Orzhova, the church of deals seem much to slow to be useful ,maybe add Thawing Glaciers for a land that keeps giving

Have you considered Open the Armory?

Swap butcher's cleaner for Loxodon Warhammer?

Maybe add Worn Powerstone instead of a three mana rock?

Thanks for your suggestions! This is a pretty rough list right now; there's a lot of cards I need to get, many of which you've suggested (Liliana, Death's Majesty, Liliana's Mastery, Shepherd of Rot, Zombie Master). This deck is admittedly a low priority among my EDH lists, (owning nine Commander decks really hurts my wallet) but I'm looking forward to teching it out as it is next on my list to upgrade.

I would absolutely run Lord of the Undead and Relentless Dead if it weren't for the fact that both of those cards are quite expensive for me. Since Standard is about to rotate out Shadows Over Innistrad, I figure I can pick up the latter once it cycles out for a better price.

Dralnu, Lich Lord isn't really good for my playgroup. Aside from the fact that I'm focusing on a creature-based deck as opposed to instant/sorceries, there's about two too many copies of Blasphemous Act floating around that would really punish me.

Breathstealer's Crypt looks cool, always love older janky cards that synergise well. I'm just concerned about revealing every card I draw; I love to play politically and I think that could hurt me.

Dread Slaver used to be in the list, and from playtesting I can say it underperformed. A lot. I could never create a favorable combat situation in which my opponent would actually block/attack into it. Creatures can just be really big in EDH.

Zombie Infestation is a pretty good card, but I like to tutor up Necropotence pretty often and discarding has antisynergy with it.

Other cards I'm looking to add would be Graveborn Muse (I get to draw into whatever I didn't scry away), Risen Executioner (as a more budget Zombie lord), Hero's Downfall (to strictly upgrade Murder), Buried Alive (just a casual 3-for-3 tutor), and Paradox Haze (because duh).

Thanks again for your upvote!

Hey, cool looking deck! I love seeing decks built around obscure legends. I see you are interested in making the deck have more late game staying power. I suggest some more effective removal and card draw, while focusing on cards that get better as the game progresses whenever possible.


Card advantage:

Some +1/+1 counter / commander synergy cards:

Also I think adding a few more mana rocks couldn't hurt either. Even just colorless ones. Happy gathering!!
