Liliana, Death Wielder Discussion

Vraska the Unseen doet te weinig als ze het board raakt. Het enige wat ze kan doen is een creature slopen. In multiplayer is dat misschien niet genoeg.

Liliana, Death Wielder is begrijpelijk met proliferate. Alleen heb je niet genoeg om het leuk te maken. En als je geluk hebt met genoeg proliferate dan heb je waarschijnlijk liever een andere planeswalker

Kiora, the Crashing Wave +1 is niet genoeg om je planeswalker te beschermen. De -1 is 'leuk'. Maar is 4 mana voor de draw het waard?

Je hebt Jace, Memory Adept & Jace, the Living Guildpact erin om dieper door de deck heen te gaan. Maar is het leuke idee niet dat je permants de graveyard ingaan vanaf het veld?

Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage is begrijpelijk maar het geeft je tegenstander de keus. Daardoor wordt het ene stuk minder. De passive is niet genoeg om de kaart te beschermen of je tegenstander tegen te houden.

En ik zou de instanst eruit halen en dan als er ruimte is dan boardwipes erin te doen.

Dedicated zombie tribal could be cool, and it seems you're already headed in that direction, so I'd check for any specific zombie lords you're missing ( Lord of the Undead for example) if you want to pursue that direction for your deck.

As for specific adds and subtracts;

Subtracts; Killing Wave (people will just pay the life for what they want to keep, I'd replace this with Torment of Hailfire or Exsanguinate or an actual board wipe). Bontu's Last Reckoning almost makes you skip your entire next turn just so you can cast Damnation for one less mana. I'd recommend Mutilate over it if anything. Cruel Edict is bad, Liliana's Triumph and various other cards are much better for this effect, probably including Innocent Blood . Liliana's Elite is probably mediocre most of the time, Liliana's Reaver is just bad. Graveyard Marshal isn't actually great for zombies, there are lots of better ways to make zombie tokens if you want. I wouldn't recommend him. Desecration Demon will probably never be useful in EDH so I wouldn't recommend him, if your opponents really can't just handle taking the 6 damage to the face in the air then they'll definitely just have a creature to sacrifice to stop it. Its not a good card in EDH at all unfortunately. I think Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead > Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. Also, I wouldn't recommend some of your planeswalkers; i love liliana but some of those cards are downright useless in EDH (if you manage to do a single thing with Liliana, Death Wielder I'd be shocked).

Add; Dictate of Erebos ( Grave Pact with flash). Dark Prophecy , Midnight Reaper and various other similar effects to help you draw more (which I think your deck will want to do, and black has a million options for drawing cards, especially when things die). Definitely Corpse Augur and Graveborn Muse too. Toxic Deluge is also a better board wipe than most of your removal. I'd probably recommend Stitcher's Apprentice as well, to help you get some cards in your graveyard. I'll think of more if you want, there's such a wide variety of cards to use in black zombies.

Also, your deck has multiple tutors, but not really any obvious win conditions to look for. Can you tell me what you think you'll be tutoring for most of the time? I'd say Gray Merchant of Asphodel as its probably your strongest card, but you also don't have much reanimation to back it up a lot of the time.

I suggest you add some graveyard hate in case your opponents have a way to recur back their cards (Living Death, Scrap Mastery, Sun Titan, etc.), like Crook of Condemnation, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb or Leyline of the Void (if you have the $$$). You already have Bojuka Bog, so nice choice :). I love the Whip of Erebos and Phyrexian Reclamation to get back my own creatures and some instants or sorceries put them back directly (one-time only though): Cauldron Dance, Torrent of Souls, Rise from the Grave. Beacon of Unrest is very nice and versatile. If you have the budget, Sheoldred, Whispering One is very effective and Goryo's Vengeance can be useful. Shallow Grave, Animate Dead and Necromancy are other options too. For mass-reanimation, use Rise of the Dark Realms, Liliana Vess or Liliana, Death Wielder. If you like the discard theme, pretty much all specters have an ability related to that, but of course they aren't of the tribes you want with your commander. Also, if you play black, I think tutors are a must, because they are the best in the game since only Beseech the Queen reveals the tutored card in black (well, I think so). So Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition and the good old budget Diabolic Tutor are among options.

Dauthi Embrace is pseudo unblockable for Hapatra, or for political gains. Quest for Renewal and Spidersilk Armor shores up your defense. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence are great with your commander.

I like what's going on. I think some of the instants/sorceries can be replaced or cut in lieu of a creature that does the same thing would be good. Unless you're burning an e witness or something to bring them back those cards are worthless in your graveyard, but as creatures they're easier for you to bring back and abuse multiple times. I'll add cards here that I would consider cutting just to bring numbers down.

The rest is kind of flexible I feel with how much you want to do. How many 'ramp' creatures do you want vs how many 'sac outlet' creatures do you want vs how many 'killin shit' creatures do you want, etc. There's a lot of the same-ish effects from a lot of the creatures on the list, those can be narrowed down simply based on how you want things to run. There's a few creatures in there that provide hella value but don't necessarily fit with the theme in my opinion but I don't want to list cards as cuts since I'm not sure what you're thinking. And not to contradict myself right away but I did cut the proliferate stuff because while I get what you're trying to do with the extra counters on your general, I just don't think it's very effective or as reliable as your ability to simply sac outlet your little pissant creatures to get the counters.

  • I think that if you plan on running more bodies or permanents I would cut all of your ramp spells like cultivate and kodama's and shit and just have creatures fill that role. If you can get essentially the same effect, creatures will ALWAYS be a better option than an instant/sorcery in this deck.

TypicalTimmy on 5C Dragon Help - Looking ...

Looking for cards that can help me bring out Dragons for free. So any card that does this sort of thing, really.

I know a small list already, but I was wondering what else there is so I can try to narrow and hone in on the best cards.

Here's what I already know of that do this sort of thing, in one way or another. In no particular order, because I'm lazy.

I'm trying to stay away from graveyard tricks, so please keep those suggestions to a minimum. Thank you.

Cards I know of Show

As I said, I'm trying to stay away from Graveyard tricks but if it is cheap enough and easy to pull off, I guess it works. I'm looking to constantly grow my boardstate every turn, not try and rebuild it from scratch.

Yes I know Dragon Broodmother and Utvara Hellkite will grow the boardstate as well. I plan on including them. I just wanted to know what else I might be missing :)

Thanks! :D
