What are your thoughts on Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip?

She should be fairly easy to flip, and her first two abilities could be useful, but I’m more interested in trying to get her emblem. It’s kind of a one sided Lifeline.

king-saproling I've tried Panharmonicon and Hazoret's Monument, but they didn't work that well to me. I might try those two again in the future if I feel like they could do something with them again.

I might try Impact Tremors and Knollspine Dragon in the deck in the future. Lifeline and Humble Defector seems like it'll be useful, so I'll give it a thought.

Everything else, I think they're too slow or cost too much. Thanks for the comment!

Glad to hear it!

Ive gotten to play mine twice so far. First time around I managed to have 22 squirrels in play and was going to cast Overwhelming Stampede on my turn but another player combo'ed off before it came back around.

Second game I won on turn 6 after dropping Metallic Mimic turn 2, Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher turn 3, Deranged Hermit turn 4. Letting it die and casting Animate Dead on it turn 5 and activating acornelia to remove to one problem blocker i saw. Then casting Craterhoof Behemoth on 6 and swinging to take out the table.

The deck won't always be so smooth but its always satisfying to kill friends with furry rodents. Also, its pretty clear the Deranged Hermit and Deep Forest Hermit are going to be two of, if not the, most important cards in the deck. the 4 tokens and 5 acorns they bring are huge advantages. Thats why I am running things like Animate Dead and Lifeline.

Hope you have a blast playing your deck.

Also thinking about the following:

  • Braid of Fire - slaps roof this ramp can help us get to throwing multiple creatures out in no time..
  • Lifeline- Who cares if the creatures are sacrificed? They'll just come back if a single creature is still on the field.
  • Mirror March - 6 CMC is a bit expensive, though this can double some really great ETBs and give us potentially more chances to connect with our non-legendaries.
  • Bearer of the Heavens - This is a bit iffy, but if can give our team indestructible, this is basically another win-con.
