Graveborn Muse Discussion

Rzepkanut on Gisa and Geralf EDH

The most powerful thing the zombie tribe has going for it are all the lords. Its what makes a few 2/2 tokens into a scary horde of death. There are ones that pump black creatures and ones that pump zombies to choose from. Some are cheaper than others but these are all around 3$ and under: Hall of Triumph, Bad Moon, Ascendant Evincar, Cemetery Reaper, Metallic Mimic, Paragon of Open Graves

In my experience with using this commander, having too many cards that just recycle dead creatures should be unnecessary with this deck. The whole point of using this commander is that it does that job pretty well already. I would just use a couple of the best.

Personally I found River Kelpie, Secrets of the Dead and Necromancer's Stockpile underwhelming and ineffective in actual gameplay. Almost anything that just normal draws cards is better than them. Graveborn Muse can be such a draw engine you have to kill it after a few turns but its amazing. I also love Curse of Shallow Graves its so great. And lastly, Conspiracy is nuts, it makes it so you can cast any creature from your graveyard and the commander gets pumped from zombie lords then too. Happy gathering!

Nice deck! Got a couple ideas for you.. I'm a big fan of Duelist's Heritage over Battle Mastery... Sword of the Animist is great in non green decks especially Voltron style ones... Inspiring Statuary is great with lots of equipment cards... I like effects like Dictate of Heliod over aura pump spells here since you have so many small value creatures, plus a bunch fly. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can get crazy in 2 color decks. Also I feel like you could use some big card draw spells. There's so much black card draw out there that uses life loss as a drawback that you could probably some no problem. Skeletal Scrying, Phyrexian Arena, Parting Thoughts, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Minions' Murmurs, Moonlight Bargain, Necrologia, Promise of Power, and Underworld Connections... That's more than you need, but i would pick a few of them...Alhammarret's Archive is great in life gain but it's better with card draw effects... also Rhox Faithmender & Boon Reflection for more life gain doubling. Happy gathering!

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
