Liliana, Heretical Healer Discussion
1 day ago
She's really good but requires a lot of build around for the flip trigger to happen. Then, your opponent can respond to the trigger with removal while it's on the stack, meaning you sometimes need multiple ways of setting off the trigger.
Sakura-Tribe Elder is one of the better ways I've seen people get Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip to flip. I think the more time goes on, the more viable she becomes as more cards are printed. She's absolutely nuts if you can combine her with Cabal Therapy and Veteran Explorer in Legacy. As others have said, she's also good in EDH.

I say f**k em. You built a deck you enjoy and love to play, if they don't like it, they can go somewhere else. I'm actually getting A LOT of hate for just attempting to make an Infect/Deathtouch edh and I could care less. They are not YOUR cards, YOU did not pay for them, YOU don't have to play against me.

So, a while back I had built my first EDH deck around Horobi, Death's Wail.. As I expected, if left alone I could take over the game, but instead I seem to only draw hate.. So now I'm looking to switch Horobi out for something a little less "cute", and hopefully without having to completely change my current list (aside from Horobi-specific tech, of course)..
Here the deck I'm working with..

Here's the list of potential Mono-Black Commanders that I currently own, and therefore to choose from.. My "Top-3" are listed first, the rest are in no particular order..
- Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed
- Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip
- Kokusho, the Evening Star
- Erebos, God of the Dead
- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder
- Hythonia the Cruel
- Visara the Dreadful
- King Macar, the Gold-Cursed
- Kuon, Ogre Ascendant
- Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
- Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon
The general goal here is to have a definitive Mono-Black deck that can survive at least a moderate amount of hate, and without being too cheesy in the process..

DredgarI took a look at your binder, and I'm interested in Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, Waste Not (foiled), Primeval Titan, Ghost Quarter, Viscera Seer, Scavenging Ooze, Ulvenwald Hydra (foiled), Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Cultivate, Master Biomancer, Gyre Sage, and Commander's Sphere. The grand total of the prices tapped out provides is $36.84, which is enough for 3 Fatal Push's and a Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip.(2 dollar difference, the grand total is $38.22

drew my Phyrexian Obliterator in response though and dragged the game out a bit. im not sure if my friend wouldve played the same way as you wouldve but he made the right call letting me sac your stuff to rid obliterator and let Eternal Witness save the day. my deck lost.
Game 3: an early Sagu Mauler was beating me down and i couldnt use my Gatekeeper of Malakir to get it sac'd because of the freaking birds, myLiliana, Heretical Healer Flipwith a lashwrithe traded blows to keep me alive though untill i got to turn it into the planeswalker side and win via revive Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get a second Phyrexian Obliterator (the first one got exiled) Akroma, Angel of Fury WAS on the field to trade with obliterator but i had a lucky Dismember to make her a 1/1 for trample win VERY CLOSE GAME that went quite a bunch of turns.
game 5:Thought-Knot Seer comes out super early and gets flashed back by Restoration Angel asap. my hand gets crippled and i proceed to lose the game with nothing but my cant block for shit Bloodghasts out to watch.
The deck is actually pretty good,with a little luck in the opening hand it rolls really strong. but the thing i noticed is that it does get disrupted quite easily. Akroma, Angel of Fury doesnt seem like the strongest card for its value maybe? sure it hits like a truck and has semi protection but white and blue arent the scariest colors when it comes to killing beaters. it does dodge Dismember tho so thats something.
Wall of Omens im iffy about. sure when flickered you get to draw even more but its only a 0/4 though. is it really worth the slot?
iv been playing with Westvale Abbey Flip in my deck, its not the strongest card nor do you flip it very often (rarely actually) but it does provide an additional win con lategame when you can afford to sac the Birds of Paradise and whatnot.
you removed Stonehorn Dignitary which i can see why, but it does somewhat improve the aggro matchup in my opinion, maybe secret sideboard tech?
anyway, thats all i have man. thanks for sharing your decklist on my post its a great deck and hella fun to play. best of luck

No sweat UnleashedHavok, always willing to provide a different perspective. My Buried Alive piles really depend on the board and my mood. If I want to be goofy I'll get Crypt Champion, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, and Anger, using the Crypt Champion + Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip interaction I mention in my primer. If I need to respond to the board, I choose one of my myriad toolbox answers and then usually fun value cards such as Gonti, Lord of Luxury or Stoneforge Mystic. If I have Living Death in hand I'll grab Anarchist, Mindless Automaton, and Golgari Thug and I'll go all in on the reanimation plan.
This right here is exactly why I love this deck so much. There are always so many options, and I rarely get the same pile twice. I feel like this is the best way to really embrace the singleton nature of EDH.

Thanks for your input everyone.
I'll start sorting my cards tomorrow to get a better view of what cards I own that can be played in mono-black. This will hopefully make it easier to see which one of the commanders is more viable.
As mentionned Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is likely to turn on it's owner, so that'd require enough lifegain to offset his ability, on the other hand Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is a creature that dies easily and a planeswalker can die even faster.
I'll make sure to post my decision here soon enough (probably with a first decklist)
