Blightning deals 3 damage to target player. That player discards two cards.

I have two gigantic, hate-fueled suggestions: Curses and Zo-Zu the Punisher.
Which curses, in particular? I'm glad you asked! Curse of Bloodletting in particular would be monstrous in this deck, Curse of Chaos is a good incentive to throw that one extra creature at the opponent, Curse of Misfortunes speaks for itself, Curse of Opulence makes the opponent a huge target early-on, Curse of the Nightly Hunt can very easily leave the opponent with no creatures left, Curse of Thirst is super jank, which means it would feel beautiful to kill an opponent with it, Curse of Vengeance is a fantastic second wind for you, unless you're playing 1v1, Torment of Scarabs builds slowly but it can also force the opponent to make some really tough choices, and Trespasser's Curse is legendary vs. tokens, tribal, anything creature-based. Also worth noting: Accursed Witch Flip, though not a curse, turns into a pretty decent one.
Other cards that force opponents to make awful decisions include Torment of Hailfire, Indulgent Tormentor, and Killing Wave. Blightning, Mogis, God of Slaughter, and Rakdos's Return also force life loss and/or loss of resources.
Thank you for your time, and for brewing this deliciously diabolical deck.

Hey magnum237, thanks!
Liliana's second ability is more important than her first, so I would definitely never play Necrogen Mists haha. In the fast Modern format, it probably amounts to "both players discard one to two" on average. Wrench Mind and Blightning are just better, but I wouldn't play those either.
A complete revision (see description for budget list) is better than straight trades.

You want just enough removal in this deck to get on-line without dying. I would cut 3 Fatal Push and 1 Blightning and go up to 4 Bolt.
Your land count is also WAY too high. Elves are known for ramping mana so cut it down to 20 and go from there. You might even be able to run 18. Start by cutting Cinder Glade, Treetop Village and Smoldering Marsh. That puts you at 18. Throw a Karplusan Forest and Llanowar Wastes in there and swap Dragonskull Summit for Evolving Wilds
Fill the remaining space with creatures and you should be good to go.

Yeah, the Ruins work really well with shocks and other "Swamp Mountain" lands...if only the tango-lands like Smoldering Marsh weren't so terrible.
rockleemyhero, thanks very much! Those are words to warm the heart of the budget brewer, indeed!
I'm racking my brain for more Lili suggestions... Blightning could be okay as a 1-of, as could Gatekeeper of Malakir (if you could support BBB...). Unfortunately, unlike most Modern staples, there aren't many strictly-but-barely-worse versions of Planeswalkers, much less one of the most powerful 'walkers of all time. Ultimately, you just gotta playtest the phooey out of your deck and find what works!
An off-the-wall suggestion -- Nihil Spellbomb is super relevant against many Modern decks (Snap, Gurmag Angler, etc), and I've seen Reid Duke put one in the mainboard of Abzan midrange. I'll keep thinking, though! Good luck!

I agree with xyr0s. You are missing Raven's Crime and Smallpox, two of 8-racks staple cards. Blightning is neat, but one of the strong points of the 8-rack shell is only needing swamps. It could be used as a finisher.
You'd need to run some Blackcleave Cliffs. You need to make sure you had access to both colours at latest turn 2.
I would also not use Wrench Mind. Conditional discard is generally sub par.

@nal1010_2 - That is another suggestion that is strictly better than it's counter part. I shall order them shortly and replace the Shred-Freaks. Excellent suggestion, thank you.
@Flooremoji - I've already removed Rakdos's Return. Blightning is an excellent card, however it doesn't really fit what my deck wants to do. May be decent sideboard tech vs my meta, but I don't currently run it. Thank you for the suggestion though!
