Blackcleave Cliffs Discussion

Vlasiax on Gimme Those Dragons!

Hello, to make this deck faster I'd cut like 2-3 lands Blackcleave Cliffs and one of Mountain and Swamp for Birds of Paradise , Deathrite Shaman and Nature's Lore .

For Dragons, which I guess you want win with I'd use ones with lower CMC since they're easier to cast and provide cool effects:

For planeswalkers I'd strongly suggest trying out Sarkhan, Fireblood

PlatinumWare I've included some Blackcleave Cliffs . Thank you very much for the suggestion, I think they'll perform wonderfully.

You definitely don't need all the fetches, I would just run mountains and then a playset of Blood Crypt and a playset of Blackcleave Cliffs

LordSnow on - Modern Aristocrats -

NcGWaspy as for the lands, Blackcleave Cliffs is one of the best lands in modern. Being able to play Thoughtseize or Lightning Bolt on turn one is incredible. Blackcleave Cliffs and Concealed Courtyard on turns 1 and 2 will let you have access to any color combo you need. Essentially, you want all of your land to be able to be untapped for the first 3 turns because you want to be aggressive and fill the board with bodies.

Speaking of filling the board with bodies, I actually love Mogg War Marshal ! It is truly fantastic in this deck. It is 3 bodies for 2 mana, it can kill itself to trigger Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat if you don't have an Aristocrat. It also plays very nicely with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, as it can be returned to get more tokens.

I love that you are into this deck! I wish I had more time to playtest more often.

Liliana's Caress is a strictly better Megrim . Liliana of the Veil is a lot cheaper than Liliana Vess . 18 lands is too little for the high curve you play. Normal 8-Rack runs 24 to hit 3 lands on turn 3 so I'd recommend a few more ( Blood Crypt , Blackcleave Cliffs , Bloodstained Mire .) I'd also cut Nyxathid from the mainboard so any removal your opponent has is useless Game 1.
