Liliana, Heretical Healer Discussion

LordSnow on - Modern Aristocrats -

NcGWaspy as for the lands, Blackcleave Cliffs is one of the best lands in modern. Being able to play Thoughtseize or Lightning Bolt on turn one is incredible. Blackcleave Cliffs and Concealed Courtyard on turns 1 and 2 will let you have access to any color combo you need. Essentially, you want all of your land to be able to be untapped for the first 3 turns because you want to be aggressive and fill the board with bodies.

Speaking of filling the board with bodies, I actually love Mogg War Marshal ! It is truly fantastic in this deck. It is 3 bodies for 2 mana, it can kill itself to trigger Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat if you don't have an Aristocrat. It also plays very nicely with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, as it can be returned to get more tokens.

I love that you are into this deck! I wish I had more time to playtest more often.

snowfox54119 Speaking of what, do you often end up with cards in hand you really want to discard ? Beacause I have the feeling that I do and have few ways to do so. That's why I replaced Gonti, Lord of Luxury by Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip as a value engine and way to discard these cards. I am curious to hear your thoughts about it :)

Duke.Fleed on Rats

There are a few options here. If you want to stay in mono black, you can look into dredge: Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug and Darkblast . In order to get these cards into your graveyard in the first place, you will need to include cards that allow you to discard. If you have the money for it: Collective Brutality is a fantastic way to do it. If budget is more of a concern then something like Dark Deal is ok but not great. You could always use Rotting Rats to make your self discard (its also fine if you mill it, since you can just unearth it).

One thing I just noticed is that you've got over 60 cards in the deck. It would probably be best if you kept to that 60 card minimum. This will increase the consistency of the deck overall. One way you could do this, if you like having a variety of different cards, is play a card like Mausoleum Secrets . This will allow you to just play one copy of niche cards like Distress , Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, and Go for the Throat . You can also cut cards like Mind Rot and Ratcatcher (3 mana for that discard ability is too expensive, and 6 mana is definitely too expensive). If it were me though, I would just cut all the extraneous cards, not even bother with the Mausoleum Secrets and just focus on the rats.

If you wanted to do multi color (it will be more expensive though). I would recommend a few cards. Red-black is the route I would take. You get cards like Faithless Looting and Experimental Frenzy . The looting is good for dumping cards into your graveyard. Frenzy is a combo card that allows you to keep playing cards off the top of your library as long as you have mana (and as long as it isn't a second land). If you want to go the frenzy route, I would recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a good way to make a bunch of mana and cast a bunch of rats. This is kind of a different way to play the deck and might be too muddy with the self mill plan. So I would either choose the mill or the frenzy plan.

Let me know if you have more questions. This deck looks rad.

Darth_Savage on White Rack (Budget)

If your playing a rack deck at the moment, you should probably be main-decking graveyard hate. Too many modern decks use the graveyard as a resource... Necrogen Mists is on occasion included in budget list to dummy as Liliana of the Veil , giving regular discard. Hostile Desert in a deck splashing white anyway, is possibly a worse Shambling Vent . Vicious Rumors might be of more help than Duress, it's a new card though so I'm not sure. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip might be usable from the sideboard, if you have something like Death Cultist or Nyxathid which could double as a threat. Hope this is of help, good luck with your deck.

I'd probably play Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip over Necrogen Mists, other than that this looks solid and the article it is based on was interesting to me, since I used to play a version of the more classic mono black devotion deck Sweet (black) devotion, have a +1 from me.

SirArtorias on Tagging Altered Art for Two ...

1 month ago

Hello internet!

I couldn't find my answer through good ole' google or the format guide so I thought to take to the forums.

I'm currently updating my Karador decklist and my flip planeswalker Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is altered on both sides. I was able to tag the altered art of the first side, but it doesn't seem, to my knowledge, that there is an option to tag the art of the other side.

Any help would be appreciated :)
