Liliana, Death Wielder Discussion

Spud9000 on -1/-1 Flooded

2 days ago

Take a look at Fume Spitter, It's more flexible than Festering Mummy.

A few other cards worth mentioning:

Black Sun's Zenith

Crumbling Ashes

Everlasting Torment

Kulrath Knight

Liliana, Death Wielder might also work. Very High CMC...

Cool idea, Reba04.

Not sure if you're open to suggestions, and if not, go ahead and just skip over the rest of this post =)

I'd look into adding some more 2 and 3 cost creatures to smooth your mana curve out. having a hand full of 5/6/7 drops in your opening hand feels bad... and if the Magic Gods treat you anything like they treat me, it's going to happen. A lot.

2 CMC: Gifted Aetherborn(probably the best, but requires which can get weird) Adanto Vanguard(give you something to do with all the life you're gaining and hard to remove if you're willing to pay)

3 CMC: Yahenni, Undying Partisan... there isn't much on this slot. Maybe Legion Conquistador to fill your hand back up with creatures.

I'd pull out about 4 lands, 2Deathless Ancient(expensive for what it does and the body isn't impressive for the mana cost. 4Gravedigger(same reasons), 2-4Queen's Agent(same reasons), 1Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle(he's legendary, so once you have one out, the rest in your hand are dead cards until they kill him), 2Liliana, Death Wielder(expensive to cast. doesn't synergize well with vampes since her abilities are -1/-1 counter up until the ultimate), and 2Vanquisher's Banner(I like this card but expensive to cast before it starts giving you benefits).

That's a lot of cards to pull... what else is going in?

Removal. 2-3Cast Out IMO runner-up for best removal in Standard. Cycling and a lot of decks don't play enchantment removal, so you can remove whatever it is... forever.Fatal Push and/or Walk the Plank Push IS the best removal... but pricey.

This is getting longer than I Anticipated... so I'll stop here. Sorry for the novel. Regardless, +1 from me, and keep brewing. Have you played this in paper yet? How's it been for you?

''Also known as wedding'' +1 from me

Rogue's Passage might help you get in with you commander and get some spoils, also perhaps Whispersilk Cloak for added protection.

For long games (because of it's high cmc) you might like Rise of the Dark Realms. Lilliana could also make quite a good wife, Liliana, Death Wielder. She works well with Necroskitter and Midnight Banshee, but her ult only affect your graveyard... maybe Liliana Vess?

Have a nice day.

Replace your gifts of paradise with Channeler Initiate a mana dork and you get -1/-1 counters. also consider white mana for dust. I also like Tenacious Hunter in decks like these. Maybe Winding Constrictor to help the counter game.

If you feel like buying a planeswalker deck theres. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence

okie dokie! lets begin

lands

at this point I just like 24 lands in any 60 card deck I have, buuuuut I do have plenty of faith that the 22 you have is fine. now the only change I would make to lands is adding 4 Ifnir Deadlands and maybe 2 Grasping Dunes. the Ifnir Deadlands I must say from experience are way more powerful then they look and to top it off fit your decks theme, so 100% includes. now Grasping Dunes is weaker but it is in them, so they are maybes. now what i would replace is 4 Swampfor ifnirs and 2 Foul Orchard for Grasping Dunes. but once again dunes are definitely a maybe, it won't hurt you at all to not have them

Planeswalkers

now I know Liliana, Death Wielder is in theme, but for 7 mana she does not do nearly enough so I could never suggest her in any deck outside of commander. Now Vraska, Relic Seeker may not be in theme but she alone is a fire magnet that ends the game by herself while being good removal in your colors. so if you want a planeswalker in this deck shes the only one I can suggest.

Enchantments

no real suggestions, there really is only one for your slot. maybe add a fourth since its the decks theme.

Instants

you already have push but a few things you could add are Blossoming Defense it may not be in theme but it can act like a kill spell and save your hapatras. Hapatra's Mark is an in theme blossoming defense. buuut sometimes you may want that +2/+2. Splendid Agony its not super but it triggers your stuff and can kill creatures, so really good in your deck needs play testing to be sure. Torment of Venom its pricey but i like how many counters you get out of it, plus the punish effect can be fun. Vraska's Contempt is solid sideboard tech for a deck with gods or planeswalkers.

Sorceries

Grind is cheap, kills possibly two creatures and channeler initiate can cast the dust part. but probably better in the sideboard. its not super strong but Hazardous Conditions is a fun field bomb your creatures could technically survive if they have -1/-1 counters on them, but against constrictor decks it does nothing sooo sideboard against token decks or just don;t use it. Its just a funny card that would surprise your opponents when your creatures survive it. Lethal Sting is your decks unlicensed disintegration, that can trigger your other cards. lastly maybe a field bomb like Yahenni's Expertise.

Creatures

Archfiend of Ifnir though you don't have much cycle or discard he can wipe a board and do massive triggers, just need some discard/cycle cards. Bone Picker not to theme but your deck should have things die often. so a 3/2 flyer for 1 is awesome. Crocodile of the Crossing this is one of the best cards you can add, its in them and as game ending as hazoret with 5 power haste. i just love the idea of playing it putting the counters on a festering mummy, making tokens then put festering mummies counter on an enemy card to make more tokens then hit for 5. its soooo good. Decimator Beetle i do agree with you its cost makes it slow, but a one of might be good. Plague Belcher no your not zombies but the counters and 3 cost 5/4 menace means he is in theme with ridiculous power. Ruthless Sniper like archiend if you go cycle in any way he fits the theme.

My changes

so those are all my suggestions the actual changes i would go through with is- trade 4 Swamp for 4 Ifnir Deadlands, trade lili for vraska, take outWalk the Plank replace it with 2 Lethal Sting (worse but in theme) or keep 2 walk the planks and add 2 Yahenni's Expertise. take out Baleful Ammit and replace it with 2 Plague Belcher, go down a Banewhip Punisher to 2 and add a Channeler Initiate to 3. take out the Defiant Greatmaw and add 4 Crocodile of the Crossing. trade 2 hapatras for 2 Exemplar of Strength. so you have 4 exemplars and 2 hapatras. I cant promise this will be super strong with what little support wizards gave us but this is what i suggest.

Liliana, Death Wielder might work as well

zephyr_chang, thanks for the suggestions! I always thought that I didn't need Liliana, Death Wielder but she came in the original deck that I built this deck around and I just haven't cut her out yet. What would you suggest I do to add more creatures: max out the creatures I have or add new creatures? I definitely noticed my lack of removal when I tried testing the deck and will be addressing that soon.

Shwang on Liliana Starter Deck Upgrade, Help needed

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I would take out Liliana, Death Wielder because of the high cost. I agree with xxCopperheadx that you should have 4 copies of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. And I would quad up on the Defiant Greatmaw and Hapatra's Mark too.

Also, his suggestions of Ammit Eternal and Fatal Push are good. Another fun one to think about adding in is Tenacious Hunter.

Another thought is that Cartouche of Strength is very good, and would help you replay Trial of Ambition.

Good luck!
