Liliana, Heretical Healer

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric


Whenever another nontoken creature you control dies, exile Liliana, Heretical Healer, then return her to the battlefield transformed under her owner's control. If you do, put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

Nice Meren Deck! I recommend checking mine out to help give ya some ideas.

Because you got a protean hulk, I recommend running some more tutors to help out more. A good one that synergies really well with your deck is Natural Order . Pattern of Rebirth is another good creature tutor. Creature tutors are also really nice so Fierce Empath and Woodland Bellower are pretty good choices, they can also tutor each other so you can cause a tutor chain.

Phyrexian Delver is a really solid reanimate card, especially because you can recur it to bring back other stuff. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is another good reanimate spell that also does multiple stuff.

You should consider some more mana dorks if you are going for 35 lands, it also just increases the chances of getting a turn 2 or turn 3 meren out.

Alternate wincons, Massacre Wurm and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . Massacre wurm is a 6 mana boardwipe that you can recur thanks to meren and it has the ability to drain so much life. If you are playing against a tutor deck you just tutor the wurm and kill that guy. Gray merchant is a nice way to drain peoples life, you get to recur it thanks to meren ability and it helps stabilize your health if people are targeting you.

Cheap cards u should get some amount of:

General value goodstuff:

Bloodsoaked Champion

Grim Haruspex

Midnight Reaper


Zulaport Cutthroat

Westvale Abbey  Flip (you're gonna love this one, it's especially good if you like having token generators)

Skullclamp (probably the most powerful equipment in the game. And drawing cards is fucking awesome)


Swords to Plowshares


Kaya's Wrath

Anguished Unmaking

Grave Pact

Reanimation (very good when you're actively putting cards from your deck into your graveyard):

Dread Return

Karmic Guide


Phyrexian Delver

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip


Animate Dead

Sac outlets:

Viscera Seer

Carrion Feeder

Cartel Aristocrat

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

High Market


Ranger of Eos

Diabolic Intent

Enlightened Tutor

Beseech the Queen

Dark Petition

Mausoleum Secrets (very cool in your deck)


Orzhov Basilica

Scoured Barrens

Concealed Courtyard

Command Tower

Caves of Koilos

City of Brass

Isolated Chapel

Tainted Field

You should probably choose whether you want the deck to be more or less focused on tokens. If you don't want tokens to be a main theme, you should probably just run Ophiomancer and a couple other generators and put in more reanimation effects like Phyrexian Delver .

You should still run Karmic Guide and Reveillark no matter what you do because they're too good not to. With a sac outlet, you can sacrifice them and bring them back an infinite number of times and kill your opponents with Komrade.

I would run quite a few sac outlets to make sure you can keep sacrificing your stuff for value. The best ones are Viscera Seer , Carrion Feeder and Cartel Aristocrat . Skullclamp works especially well with sac outlets

I think Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip combos with Saffi Eriksdotter and Loyal Retainers . Saffi sacs herself targeting Liliana, Liliana flips, loyal Retainers sacs for saffi, Liliana targets Retainers with her third ability killing herself... I'm not exactly sure how it works, it might be a little different, but it's tight enough to fit into a Protean Hulk package I'm sure.

Rhadamanthus on Lazav the Multifarious and transform/flip ...

Only a double-faced card can actually transform. For your example with Elusive Tormentor  Flip, this just means nothing happens and Lazav, the Multifarious is still a copy of the Tormentor. However, for your example with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip there's a special rule that says Lazav will go to exile and stay there.

711.8a If a player is instructed to put a card that isn’t a double-faced card onto the battlefield transformed, that card stays in its current zone.

SpecimeN87 on Lazav the Multifarious and transform/flip ...

If Lazav, the Multifarious clones Elusive Tormentor  Flip, and then activates the transformation condition, does the transformation happen? Would Lazav then have the abilities of Insidious Mist ?

Conversely, what if I were to copy either jace, vryn prodigy or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip? Is it now a planeswalker?

shaftdiggity Those are all great suggestions, thanks! I do have Black Market but not sure what to swap for it just yet. I also remember looking into Bloodchief Ascension and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip before, but haven’t found them for a reasonable price just yet. Dark Tutelage has potential too, and shouldn’t be too hard to grab, though I’d also need to decide what to cut for it.
