APPLE01DOJ on Liliana Planeswalkers HELP!

9 hours ago

I understand that you're a begginer to magic and I don't intend to discourage you but the best Liliana planeswalker in modern is Liliana of the Veil. Typically you would want 3-4 copies of her.

Now that's out of the way your deck is kind of all over the place which is fine good stuff decks are totally viable in modern but you have to have some consistency to them. So take Murder for example, this is a card you would want most games so 4 copies would be a good number to run. That being said, Murder isn't usually played because better (Hero's Downfall) and cheaper (Fatal Push, Cast Down) options exist.

Lastly you should under stand the strengths of Black are cheap creature removal (see above), discard spells like Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, as well as cards that trade life for advantage such as Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Arena, Bitterblossom or again Thoughtseize.

Creatures in black are typically overcosted or come with a significant down side (see Master of the Feast), Some are viable but must be built around like Abyssal Persecutor, Nyxathid, or Death's Shadow but the other option is to splash another color. Green pairs nicely with black thanks to cards like Tarmogoyf or Scavenging Ooze.

Ayy, thanks for commenting on my deck! looking through yours i have a couple suggestions of things that work out REALLY well with Vish Bitter Ordeal being one of the more surprising, I've chain sacrificed to where i hit every card left in my opponents libraries (for essentially an easier Jace ult that hits each opponent because of how busted the card is worded) Bitterblossom Ophiomancer Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton are literally just "free" pumps to the Vish that don't stop putting in work. :)

Ayy, Nice build, looks a bit similar to mine (though a bit higher on the CMC range) aha, main wonder is why no Bitterblossom it's been one of the best cards in my build just cause of the constant counter fodder for VK, also Since your rocking the Coffers plan, why not have Deserted Temple for extra activation value.

So a couple of great wincons you could consider are Angrath's Marauders, Borderland Behemoth, Omnath, Locus of Rage, and Stalking Vengeance. You probably don't need Emmara since your creatures will get big, especially by the time you are playing a 7 drop.

Panharmonicon could help you get more triggers out of Bramble Sovereign, Dual Nature, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Minion Reflector, which can be great if you don't have Brudiclad. You could also add Parallel Lives.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is great for copying a creature and making a hasty token.

You probably need more early ways to generate tokens, with cards like Bitterblossom, From Beyond, Dune-Brood Nephilim, Hero of Bladehold, Tilonalli's Summoner, and Hordeling Outburst.

Mana Echoes is amazing for mana in a token deck. Are you getting good value out of the creature type changing enchantments? If not, Sliver Queen as commander can make more tokens, and also goes infinite with Mana Echoes.

Have you considered adding in any enchantments that make tokens? Bitterblossom, Awakening Zone, and From Beyond are favorites of mine. Chump blockers are invaluable against some strategies.

Thanks for the suggestions, surely the manabase is easy ti upgrade with shock and fetch lands. Bitterblossom is interessing but way top out of budget. Secure the Wastes is good, It night replace lingering souls. Thoughtseize is something I've considered bit it's a bit out of budget at the moment, bit still in the possibility list. I love splashing black for more interactivity with the opponent and because of hand-hate and cheap removal. Nahiri, the Harbinger is Cool bit I think that in order ti play her i Need to play almost a different deck. Thanks for suggestions, i'll keep those in consideration

Seems very nice, but I'd do some changes: first of all I would change Cast Down into Fatal Push. Then, if it's on budget, I'd increase the numer of Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand and Marsh Flats and I'd cut Nimbus Maze and River of Tears. I'd add also the schocklands, if on budget: Hallowed Fountain, Watery Grave and Godless Shrine, cutting Adarkar Wastes and Underground River. Then, why not a Logic Knot or Mana Leak instead of Negate and Pact of Negation? Also, since you have decided to use only 2x Inquisition of Kozilek, couldn't be better Thoughtseize? Another 2 token spawners I would take in consideration here are: Bitterblossom and Secure the Wastes (since is instant and creates as many tokens you want). Another thing: since you have only 4 black spells, why won't you consider cutting all black from the deck?

daseeker25 on Dimir Faeries with a splash of White

You have a good build with good synergy here. I just threw down some thoughts on cards that are hopefully all budget enough to consider. Most of these are super cheap on mtgo which makes that a good program to play on for brewing budget options. You are looking at up to $0.25 a card (usually much less) instead of $2

I like Glen Elendra Liege but why not drop those for two more Scion of Oona? You have no blue and black creatures and all your creatures are faeries so it seems much better. If you want more than 4 of those effects, then I would go to Glen Elendra Liege.

Have you considered Despise or Duress for other turn 1 plays? Inquisition of Kozilek is not too expensive if within budget. You do rely on throwing out creatures and swinging wide so perhaps not playing these is best.

Secluded Glen seems much better than Dismal Backwater but quite pricey. River of Tears may work well for you. Faerie Conclave may be a good option but I wouldn't play more than 2 because you do not want too many tapped lands in this build. Mutavault is a powerhouse in faeries with how it interacts with Spellstutter Sprite and in this case Thieving Sprite. However, 4 Mutavault cost more than the whole deck currently and as much as one Bitterblossom.

Your biggest fear is board wipes post sideboarding. I would recommend Spell Pierce, Negate, or Countersquall. I would also play Nihil Spellbomb in the sideboard for graveyard hate. I love Shadow of Doubt to hit fetchlands or combo decks but Squelch can be a fun budget option. Disdainful Stroke is also a very good budget counterspell.

Another upgrade path for this deck would be to focus on the go wide flying theme and splash white (perhaps use fast lands in esper colors). Key card is Pride of the Clouds while not a faerie becomes huge when you have a few faeries out. Spell Queller is also a good card that you cannot pass up if playing blue/white flyers. Selfless Spirit protects from board wipes. Adding in these cards decreases usefullness of Scion of Oona and may make sense to move back to Glen Elendra Liege
