Liliana, Dreadhorde General Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH [PRIMER]

1 week ago

FunkiestBunch and OptimalGreen: Yeah, this set didn't give me much for Hapatra :( These days, the only new things that get added here are powerful draw sources, tutors, and (in the right block) -1 counter sources. With that said, Nylea's Intervention was an upgrade over Sylvan Scrying as a way to tutor Gaea's Cradle (since it can potentially grab me one or two other utility lands, or deal with fliers in a pinch).

Profet93: I've only cast Nylea's Intervention as a tutor so far, but it's actually been good so far. I'm happy with the swap.

Regarding Contamination, I've... considered it forever. I don't run many artifacts, but in theory my mana dorks should let me still have access to green. The bigger issue is that this deck is primarily green, especially in its wincons -- I have trouble winning with only black, and it cuts off my biggest mana generator (Gaea's Cradle). Though amusingly, it would make Cradle tap for B even when I control no creatures XD

I've considered Liliana, Dreadhorde General for a while. I love her as a card, and her ult is backbreaking, but Eldrazi Monument has proven to be pretty great. It permits an infinite combo with Yawgmoth, and makes me dodge most board wipes (ie, the easiest way to shut me down). Plus it's one of my three major ways to deal with fliers, and it's also one of my all-time favorite cards. Driven / Despair continues to be a disappointment every time I slot it back in, because of its one-shot nature. I just never seem to get it at the right time to really profit, even though on paper it looks amazing.

I'm running a good amount of interaction here -- I'm running 13 cards that I would consider to be a form of interaction, of which 9 are instant speed removal or protection. I'd never turn down more, of course, but what other interaction are you thinking?

Thanks Ripwater.

Generally, I think of Butcher of Malakir as a Grave Pact I can recur with Meren of Clan Nel Toth, so I'm likely to keep that over Grave Pact / Dictate of Erebos.

I generally like your dredge idea, but there tend to be many graveyard exile effects in my meta, so I don't want to load it up just to watch it get nuked. I've been through that before when I had more dredge / used Altar of Dementia on myself too much. I also currently do not own a Heritage Druid, and haven't exactly sought one out for this same reason.

I did run Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip for a bit, but I found I'd usually rather cast something else than try and get her to sit around while I killed something else. I also find her planeswalker form a little lacking overall.

I definitely need to pick up a Liliana, Dreadhorde General for this deck, as sometimes draw is a little lacking. I just dislike that I can't recur her with Meren.

I tried to swap a few larger creatures in that have kill spells attached to them (thinking things like Cavalier of Night) to try and get the 2-for-1 (beater and kill). But I'm definitely going to look into some of the things you mentioned and see how they play out for me.

Thanks for the input!

First thing I would recommend is having a mana add that produces your colors. But on a real note, Nightmare Shepherd and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger don’t do a lot in this deck. You lack a real win condition outside of the Nicol Bolases being insane value. I would cut some of the chaff like Thought Erasure and Rakdos's Return in favor of some notebook good removal like more copies of Dreadbore. If you can find copies of it, The Scarab God is of course insane, I would maybe put that in in place of your Ashiok, Nightmare Muse. You could also see some great results out of a full playset of Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and maybe a Liliana, Dreadhorde General or two would also be great additions. I am well aware that these are all super expensive cards for the most part, but three color midrange decks are some of the most expensive in the format, so there’s not a lot of ways to get around it.

Hey Master_J,

Just scrolling trough your decklist I do see a few things I would change I guess, that kinda makes the game less long and durdely...

Things I would remove are: Butcher of Malakir: You already run Grave Pact / Dictate... Do you really need another of those effects for 7 mana? I only run gravepact and I would swap that out if I owned another Dictate. I never really have the feeling I lack removal, so a Dictate would just be a little extra.

God-Eternal Bontu: If you play it for the card draw, I would just run a Hermit Druid. Wich really gives you a lot more cardadvantage by filling up the graveyard.

OVeral I think you could cut a few more Removal creatures to give your deck some utility. All-stars in my deck are: Golgari Grave-Troll: Dredge is retarded for Meren Life from the Loam: Again Dredge! Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip Discard of cards, comes with a token and meren can take her out of the graveyard. Sylvan Safekeeper To protect Meren on instant speed Oppression: You already play mindlslicer, so you can just as well rock this one. Agent of Erebos to nuke the other reanimator Liliana, Dreadhorde General

I know meren is already super slow and grindy, but using dredge really speeds things up, because it will fill up your graveyard. Having 41 creatures is nice, but you have a ton wich all do the same. So unless they get exiled, youll be stuck with you killing 1-3 creatures every turn. :)

Honestly, your deck seems interesting, and I look forward to seeing what you will do with it, but at the moment it desperately needs more lands.

More specifically:

Since you are running cards like Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Garruk, Cursed Huntsman and Casualties of War your land count should be somewhere around 25 or 26. If you haven't seen this article I would recommend you read it, there is a lot of helpful information in here: Consistently cast your spells

Since you are playing a 3 color deck, and Arboreal Grazer doesn't fix your mana, I think you should actually be running Gilded Goose in that slot instead.

Yarok, the Desecrated's effect only triggers on 3 of your creatures, Arboreal Grazer, Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Cavalier of Thorns. That is such a small section of your deck, I think you should probably be running something else in that slot.

My deck is a white weenie build with lifegain payoffs (Heliod, Sun-Crowned). I'm really not sure what the deck is missing. I've played a lot of games with it and I keep tweaking the list and this is what I have come up with. Let me know what you think.
