Liliana, Dreadhorde General Discussion

Good looking start!

I'd cut the leyline of anticipation, both because one-of leylines aren't great and because Planeswalkers don't play super well with flash - flashing in a planeswalker at the end of your opponent's turn means you're missing out on a loyalty ability activation that you could've done if you had just played it on your turn. You're also very light on lands for a deck with multiple 5 drops, a 6 drop, and countermagic that you might want to hold up after playing those cards.

I'd also try to condense some of your many, many one-ofs and two-ofs down to a bunch of three and four-ofs. Having multiple options available in the deck is nice, but being able to count on your deck to perform the same way with consistency is more important. What exactly those changes look like is up to you, but if I were you I would do the following:

Cut: 2x Ashiok, dream render, 2x drawn from dreams, 3x duress, 1x time wipe, 1x dovin, hand of control, 1x jace, wielder of mysteries, 2x ignite the beacon, 2x sinister sabotage, 1x leyline of anticipation, 1x rule of law, 2x deputy of detention

Add: 1x Thought Erasure , 4x Kaya's Wrath , 1x Liliana, Dreadhorde General , 2x Teferi, Time Raveler , 1x Absorb , 1x Tyrant's Scorn , 4x Chemister's Insight , 1x Murderous Rider , 3x land of some sort

Whatever you decide to do, be sure to have fun with it!

And also, if the deck is based around Korvild like you claim,

Cut Wildborn Preserver cut Wakeroot Elemental cut Wishclaw Talisman PLEEEASE cut Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage


Liliana, Dreadhorde General Izoni, Thousand-Eyed Biogenic Ooze all these cards will actually do stuff while not being useless like the ones mantioned above.

Also, I really dont think Sorin, Lord of Innistrad should be in the deck. He has no value except for pumping out tokens, and honestly, Liliana, Dreadhorde General is just way more value plus she draws cards and has an explosive ult that can win games, especially in a deck like yours.

So I put the Fires of Invention in here, and I obviously underestimated that card, because it was extremely effective. For some reason I had a hang-up about it, but no longer, that is a bunch of fun!

I still feel like Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and Ral, Storm Conduit help me stay alive in the early game against aggressive decks. I mostly use them to recast/copy my cheap removal spells, but I am looking forward to copying Casualties of War . I would be open to replacing them with something stonger, but they both have kept me alive when I couldn't get to the big stuff right away. I also wanna see Liliana, Dreadhorde General come down and get the card draw from the Acolyte's dying elementals, but that probably is just win-more anyhow.

I was still having some trouble with Ajani's Pridemate and aggro decks that pump up there creatures, but for the most part this deck was hummin.

Great deck! Seems to be really fun and interactive in the playtesting, but you should cut Mina and Denn, Wildborn and replace them w/ Liliana, Dreadhorde General

Hey Sorin_Markov_1947. Thanks a lot for your suggestions mate, it's great with some feedback! I ended up going deep on the card choices, so sorry about the wall of text, haha.

  • You're overlooking a centerpiece of the bakery - Gilded Goose does a lot to keep the producton running.
  • With Gilded Goose , Witch's Oven and Trail of Crumbs there's actually rarely a shortage of food, but it might be right to go up to the full 4x Trail. Giant Opportunity is a card I've looked at, but paying 3 mana for 3x food is just too low impact. Keep in mind that only 1x food in play at a time is all that's needed to keep things going.
  • Korvold, Fae-Cursed King has been a card I wanted to play with in Standard ever since he was spoiled and therefore he was added as a test. So far he has been a beast and outperformed by a lot though. Worst case scenario he draws a card and eats removal, but often he draws several cards the same turn he comes down and more or less wins the game, if you get to untap with him. He hits very hard and just drowns the opponent in value. There are other 5-drops to consider in this spot, like God-Eternal Bontu and Cavalier of Night . Liliana, Dreadhorde General can also go in the top end, but I've liked King Draco the most so far. If you take the deck for a spin and find something else that works better than daddy dragonface, I'd love to hear about it and try it!
  • I agree on Fell the Pheasant being a good sideboard option here. The only problem is that the format is pretty low on fliers at the moment. Rankle, Master of Pranks , Gilded Goose and Spawn of Mayhem are the ones I've seen most frequently and they get checked quite well by Korvold and the removal already in the 75. If that changes with the coming sets, Fell could find its place for sure.
  • Savvy Hunter is a fun idea, I'll try that one out!
