Liliana of the Veil Discussion

Hi, cool and really annoying deck to play against. My only suggestions would be to drop the enforcers for the forth Shrieking Affliction , as well as 2 Liliana of the Veil to make the deck a bit more effective, and also give you a better match-up vs aggressive creature decks.

Mana Issues

The mana's going to suck. You're running a completely 3-color deck hoping to play Cryptic Command s turn 4 and Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God turn 5.

I really like Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and want to see him stay, so I suggest taking out some of the cards that really want a color that is not black, such as Cryptic Command , Vendilion Clique , and Sweltering Suns .

Style Issues

The counter spells and instant speed interaction like Vendilion Clique and Countersquall adds something to the deck, but shouldn't be the focus of it. Instead I think Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would do best in a sort of Grixis-that-feels-like-Jund list that wants to make sure the coast is clear with removal and discard before slamming an unstoppable threat and winning.

Suggestions:

Note: I only want like one or two of these in alongside Bolas
  • Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - great all around threat which works well with removal and gets better as the game goes on.
  • Liliana of the Veil - runs down your opponents' resources.
  • Gurmag Angler - "cheap" threat
  • Death's Shadow - most shadow decks are very aggressive, but as control decks run low on life generally, it may be a fine way to close out the game while freeing up the rest of your mana for removal or card draw. Would require some relatively major changes to the deck though.

I'm SO gonna build this as my first oath-breaker deck! I am concerned though that this format might end up becoming too fast for this deck archetype to keep up :/ Otherwise i think a few cards i'd consider would be Liliana of the Veil , Death Cloud , Nezumi Shortfang , Oppression , Necrogen Mists (maybe to replace earthquake), Funeral Charm to act as instant speed discard or even Underworld Dreams to really put a clock on them! I'm so excited for this deck!

Made some changes before playtesting:

Out:

Necropotence ;Discarding to the grave is quite important in this deck so I figured it had to go.

Evolution Sage ; I cant see this ever being good. Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Liliana of the Veil will probably soon follow

In:

Erebos, God of the Dead ; Replacement for Necropotence , also negates the lifegain from all the Aetherflux Reservoir running around and it's indestructible to boot.

Zuran Orb ; Mostly to mitigate the lifeloss from fetches, shocks, card draw, removal and mana rocks. Also gets Dakmor Salvage back in the grave and lets me draw cards from The Gitrog Monster

Angrath's Negotiation

Sorcery

Signature Spell

Gain control of target creature, planeswalker, or vehicle. Untap it, it gains haste until end of turn.

At the beginning of your end step, you may pay X life where X is that permanents converted mana cost. If you do, you maintain control of the permanent until the beginning your next end step. Repeat this process as many times as you like.

"You're coming with me. How, is entirely up to you." - Angrath


You can opt to maintain control as often as you'd like, at the cost of your own life total. Perhaps they have out Liliana of the Veil , Tarmogoyf , or something powerful and low cost? Perhaps they have something insanely well worth it, like a 2-turn away Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , or you want to snuff out their Ruhan of the Fomori deck? Maybe everyone else is low on life so you can spare a second turn with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger ?

So much possibility.

Dark depths seems trash IMO, with multiplayer it takes 3 hits to kill all opponents and any Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Jace, the Mind Sculptor , Teferi, Time Raveler , Liliana of the Veil , any flicker, etc. can kill it.

Nah, best deck so far was an Esper Control variant using Aminatou, the Fateshifter , a lot for colors, but it has some good synergies. Approach of the Second Sun is the Signature Spell and win condition.

You use Pithing Needle and Sorcerous Spyglass as walker hate, and Aminatou can flicker it to name a new walker need be, or with Spyglass to see a new hand. The list runs other walker hate like Suppression Field too because Aminatou isn't super necessary.

Spellseeker , Baleful Strix , and a few other creatures show in the list ( Snapcaster Mage , etc.) with Aminatou can be pure value, but Vampiric Tutor style effects with Aminatou's +1 can get us the answers we need when we need them, and with a toolbox of the best control spells from Terminus (Aminatou synergy, and synergy with our tutors to top), Toxic Deluge , and Supreme Verdict for sweepers, Liliana's Triumph , Grasp of Fate (Aminatou synergy), and all of the other most efficient 3 for ones in multiplayer are showcased as well.

Does it seem to be the best deck? I can't find any lists that have a higher win rate.


The other contenders are Saheeli (Sublime Artificer)/Thoughtcast, with tons of artifact-storm cards.

New Jace/ Stroke of Genius , with Dramatic Reversal / Isochron Scepter and other infinite mana combos, playing some control-combo deck that uses its cards for value until it hits an infinite mana combo and wins.

Liliana of the Veil / Liliana's Triumph is a list I find pretty insane, it runs Smallpox , Pox , Chains of Mephistopheles , etc. for a fast and brutal mono-black list. Variants I have seen run Pox, Vamp Tutor, Demonic Tutor, and Smallpox as the Signature spell too, but one-sided Smallpox that doesn't hit life or lands, but is an instant seems the best so far.


Otherwise, Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted / Dark Deal seems fun.

Want more fun?

Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and Gamble , using gamble to set up rituals, and tibalt to discard and dig for more, until you find Empty the Warrens (wincon) and even if you discard it, you then fetch Past in Flames , cast it or flash it back if you discarded it, spam through your rituals, then cast or flashback Empty and win with 50 tokens.

Seems fun!
