The latest in a line of Necropotence variants, it keys in on the number of Zombies you have. It is very dangerous, as you can quickly run out of life unless you leave yourself a way to get rid of this. It will help you push yourself over the top.
In limited, it is less likely of a play, both due to your smaller deck size and the less likelyhood of getting rid of it before you die. I might play it though, depending on what I had.
Constructed: 3.25
Limited: 2.75


Graveborn Muse

This is probably my third favorite Muse. I like the Seedborn because its
just so goood, and the Dreamborn Muse since I really love the picture. Yeah
yeah, I'll put cards in decks I build just because the picture is
incredible. Anyway, back to the Graveborn Muse. This is just a super card.
Newer players (or even experienced player) sometimes dont understand how
important card advantage is. When magic was new, drawing 3 cards only cost 1
mana (Ancestral Recall), now drawing 2 cards costs 4 mana (Insperation).
Card advantage wins games, and that is what this muse gives you.

I"ve also seen it used along side Words of Worship or Words of War. These
enchantments let you choose if you want to draw the cards, or pay some mana
to gain 5 life or deal 2 damage to a creature or player. Obviously, these
are powerful combos, gaining you a lot life, or dealing a large amount of

Graveborn Muse
Casual Rating: 4.5

Graveborn Muse
Drawing cards is good, and a Hill giant attachment.  This is, in my eyes,
generally a more positive thing... black can get rid of its own creatures
more readily than it could get rid of its enchantments.  I think he's got a
lot of untapped potential... especially since you can just shove him in a
deck without zombies and he's still ok, and can be recursed with the grotto.
constructed - 3.4
limited - 3.4

       Its Phyrexian Arena on a 3/3 stick. She can even draw you more for your money depending on how many zombies you have in play. I think she'll see much more play once OTJ rotates out.

       In Limited shes a solid pick, as a 3/3 body for 2BB, and the card advantage is awesome. Just make sure you don't put yourself too low in a creature stalemate- although its hard to stay in a stalemate with that much card advantage. Definetely a powerhouse in limited.

      Now: 2.5      After OTJ rotates:3.5    (She'll see her day)
Limited: 3.5
