Liliana, Death's Majesty Discussion
2 days ago
Vigor Mortis is in the right colors. If you can manage the mana requirements, it might be worth switching out the Rise from the Graves, since you have just one Liliana, Death's Majesty as far as Zombie tribal matters. Because you aren't running any 1 -mana spells, you could probably get away with cheap enters tapped dual lands like Jungle Hollow or Golgari Guildgate.
This looks pretty solid, and I like the design. Good build!

Do you guys think Liliana, Death's Majesty would be a good addition as a 2 of in this deck to have another way to reanimate ?

Hello, Dickbutt McGee here.
This is all fine and good, but you have nothing to prevent other people from fucking you over. You'll need a bit of removal in case someone plays something that essentially reads "Michaela's deck doesn't work anymore."
^^^These are all solid ways to remove bullshit on other people's field that may be fucking you over.
Some cards that allow you to do graveyard bullshit:
Jarad's Orders: Search for something big and scary to put in the graveyard for you to later cheat onto the field, and search for something that is good utility like Solemn Simulacrum to put in your hand.
Grisly Salvage is also a great way to be filling your graveyard with bullshit to later cheat onto the field.
Liliana, Death's Majesty is great for both filling your graveyard with bullshit to cheat, and then she also helps you cheat it onto the field
Golgari Charm is just a solid card all around. It might not make the cut but it's good.

Your deck looks like very good, I also have a Gisa and Geralf Commander deck and I like it a lot. So, I can give some suggestion based in the deck that a use:
As mass removal that I like is Kindred Dominance, You choose zombie and kill the others, it's very nice for tribal decks
Some other good suggestions: Skullclamp, liliana, death's majesty, Forgotten Creation, Graveborn Muse,... and of course Cyclonic Rift, I consider a must have card in all commanders deck that uses blue, Damnation can wait (I'm not use it too)

In typical zombie builds that I have run, Gravespawn Sovereign always has a place, and for good reason. Though tapping 5 zombies is pretty expensive considering you'll want to be tapping your zombies to be attacking, hear me out. It's instant speed, meaning if you lose some lords from removal and you have newly created zombies or lords hanging back, you can summon back that lord before your next turn. It's also great when there's a sac outlet on board and a zombie with a great etb, like Sidisi or Gray (typically when I've had a bunch of stuff, Gray, and Sovereign, it typically spells doom for all opponents, it especially goes well when Mik is on board). Other inclusions you may consider are Shepherd of Rot to end the game after making everyone lose life from swinging with the bois, Liliana, Death's Majesty to fill the grave while making tokens/ recurring lords, and the Undead Alchemist to make your opponents mill and taking away their creatures so that you get more (though this is depending on 2 things: one, your playgroup, if they run a lot of creature decks, it's a solid inclusion; two, whether or not the mill plan seems interesting to you).

Consider Gift of Paradise? Until rotation I think Paradise is better main deck three drop ramp than Hoard. Post rotation hopefully Hoard will be good and can take Paradise's place because Abrade will be gone, but currently in Standard red dominates and any red deck is playing 4x Abrade. It's much more difficult for red to destroy Paradise and it gains you 3 life which is very relevant. Consider 4x Paradise cutting 4x Hoard? Hoard can be a fine sideboard card for more ramp/draw for nonred matchups especially against control, but I wouldn't main deck it.
Speaking of Abrade consider 4 of a two drop instant removal spell main deck? Consistently you want to draw a two drop removal spell in current Standard. Harnessed or Abrade are fine options, but I would pick one use it as 4 of main deck and play the other as less or cut it. Abrade is nice main deck so you don't auto lose game one to God-Pharaoh's Gift decks and Heart of Kiran while also providing 3 damage removal for Chainwhirler or other aggro. Consider 4x Abrade? If you're playing black Disintegration is a better Harnessed, don't really need both.
Duress and Doomfall are some of your best sideboard cards because they help to clear the way to resolve a Dragon in control matchups. Consider 4x Duress and 2x Doomfall? More Duress is also helpful not get wrecked by Settle.
Consider 1x Arguel's Blood Fast Flip for the sideboard, it's great against control and midrange. Consider 1x Liliana, Death's Majesty and 1x Vivien Reid for the sideboard? If Dragons get countered in control matchups Liliana gives you a repeatable way to reanimate them. Liliana is also an amazing card for midrange matchups, reanimation in midrange matchups is very helpful. Vivien can be selection to find a Dragon as well as repeatable artifact/enchantment/flier removal. Vivien seems good for any Dragon mirror match.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey! Love the deck +1!
Just wondering, I want to play this - but want to keep it rotation-proof because I don't have either Liliana, Death's Majesty or Angel of Invention. Would you be able to give me any suggestion to replace them with?
3 weeks ago
Yep, I've been playing this on MTGO ("Just for Fun" room) for a few months now with various tweaks. It's not going to be Tier 1 or anything but it does pretty well and is awfully fun. I can't stress how big of an upgrade Vine Mare was, though. The deck is so much better with it as our centerpiece.
Glad you like the deck!
I've found there to be enough targets that I'm never unhappy with Negate. Virtually every deck runs some number of important noncreature spells and I like to be ready for them. It's possible that Syncopate is a better option in this slot but we're not a true Control deck so I don't want to have to leave too much mana open.
The Eldest Reborn is an interesting thought. Rise from the Grave would likely be better for us (Liliana, Death's Majesty does this effect best, she'd just explode the budget). We already have Trial of Ambition as our edict effect and we really can't afford to wait 2 turns to get a Bogle back, if that's what we're doing with 5 mana. With 12 cards in our deck that do literally nothing until we get a Bogle down, speed is our priority. That said, I'd rather just double-down on the counterspells to force a Bogle through since we're already in Blue.
I tried Trial of Knowledge way back when I was first putting this deck together and I really didn't have much success with it. It's just too darn clunky, plus it's hard to make room for card advantage without going down something important like our control suite or auras. Opt is unassuming but it's felt like the right balance between card filtering and efficiency for our purposes. That said, Anticipate is back in the format and I haven't given it a try yet so maybe that would be better. Either way, it's very important to filter at instant speed so we can keep up our countermagic.
In any case, good luck with your brewing! Let me know if you find a recombination that hums.
