Liliana, Death Wielder Discussion

Somnscipio on Play with -1/-1 counters + cycling combos

4 days ago

Hi bustinedup! Thanks for ur comment.

I enjoy playing this deck with my friends. I like managing -1/-1 counters among my creatures and my opponent's ones.

This mana-curve is really good. The mix beetween creatures/other spells is nice. Look at the land mana graph too :)

Decimator Beetle and Channeler Initiate are a must-have.

As u can see, I put 4x Wander in Death and 2x Hapatra's Mark, in order to prevent from loosing important creatures on the battlefield.

Defiant Greatmaw is not really important and can replaced with 2 other Baleful Ammit and keep this mana-curve.

I haven't played Key to the City a lot. It can be replaced with 2x another Archfiend of Ifnir or other cards.

I am looking for a Liliana, Death Wielder, in order to maximize the strategy behind the deck, and Tree of Perdition. I will try them and update the deck.

Other comments are welcome :)

Honestly the deck looks pretty solid to me. I always thought that Hapatra wouldn't make a very good commander, but I never realized that ANY -1/-1 counters would trigger it. Soulstinger might be a good addition to this deck, as a way to sink counters and then get that many counters again. If you want some more infect in the deck, perhaps Phyrexian Hydra or Tainted Strike would interest you. Maybe Liliana, Death Wielder might be of some interest, despite its cost.

There are a few cards in the deck that I'm unsure about. I'm not sure if Serrated Arrows deserves a spot in this deck.It's 4 mana and at most generate you three snakes. Maybe more with some proliferate shenanigans, but I feel like there would be a better card for this purpose. The card fits the theme well, but I'm not sure if it's worth ordering, unless you already own the card of course. I'm also not quite sure why From Beyond is included in this deck. you have plenty of other ways to generate mana through the use of Cryptolith Rite, Channeler Initiate, and cards such as Golgari Signet. The last card I'm not sure about is Ashnod's Altar. To me it just doesn't seem to have much a purpose. You're paying 3 mana to be able to sacrifice a creature and get two mana. It just doesn't seem worth it.

On a side note, I would love to see this deck play against my +1/+1 Skullbriar, Counter King deck. They're essentially completely opposite but similar in the same way.

I would strongly suggest Decimator Beetle.

Also, Hapatra's Mark is a great 1g spell that can save you should things turn south with your counters, plus hexproof.

A great planeswalker synergy would be Liliana, Death Wielder and her focus on -1/-1 countera, as well as a full graveyard revive.

Good build, here are some fun cards I've tried in my own Hapatra deck that you might want to consider: Midnight Banshee, Gyre Sage, Carnifex Demon, Ulvenwald Tracker, Liliana, Death Wielder, Plaguemaw Beast, Collective Unconscious, Lockjaw Snapper, Hunter of Eyeblights.

I don't think Liliana, Death Wielder is good at all in this deck. She's 7 mana to put one -1/-1 counter on one creature, or 7 mana to kill an already smaller creature, or 7 mana and 3 turns for an effect your deck can do without her. Scrapheap Scrounger, Dread Wanderer and Prized Amalgam all return themselves and if you added the Relentless Dead you wanted to your deck would be very hard to keep down.
