Liliana of the Veil Discussion

Silverdrake on 8Racks of Waste

Hey, what's your budget like? I'm going to make a bunch of suggestions, but if they're outside of your budget let me know and I can tone them down. Generally speaking you want a full 4x Rack and 4x Affliciton, so I'd go up the 4th affliction. Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Raven's Crime, Liliana of the Veil and Wrench Mind are all almost always 3-4 of in every 8-rack list because of how effecient and effective they are. A 2-4 of Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage is becoming more and more popular in these decks as well - I'd run at least 2 if I were you. Smallpox often makes an appearance in these decks too, although you're a little creature heavy for it to be effective.

To be clear, I'm not arguing that any ability is busted at 4 mana, but to have None of those individually is busted, but having all those options at 4 mana is.

I mean, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is comparable in the power of just control synergy and incremental advantage, Oko, Thief of Crowns is similarly difficult to remove, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor is powerful not only for his +2 fateseal, but also the option to bounce with a -1 or Brainstorm for 0. I mean, passing priority with a five, like Teferi or Jace, or six, like that of Oko and your Mu Yanling is very difficult to handle. Liliana of the Veil is a modern staple due to her passing priority at 4 loyalty, safe from Lightning Bolt.


My Wildcard:

Agonizing Foresight

Instant

As an additional cost to Agonizing Foresight, you may any amount of life.

Scry X, where X is the amount of life paid to cast Agonizing Foresight.


Another Wildcard.

First time playing Modern since War of the Spark. Wasn't too sure of the meta at my LGS so I packed a little too much gy hate.

Round 1 vs. Dredge

Opponent was playing Dredge with Ox of Agonas.

Game 1:

Blood Moon on t3 limited his options which I Remand-ed back to his hand. No green meant no Life from the Loam to get his 5th land to hard cast the ox. Bounced 4 Prized Amalgam via Thing in the Ice  Flip Flip and attacked for lethal after some burn to the face.

Sideboard for Game 2:

Out: 4 Opt, 1 Force of Negation, 1 Serum Visions

In: 2 Grafdigger's Cage, 2 Anger of the Gods, 2 Ashiok, Dream Render

Game 2:

Started with an Anger of the Gods, Remand, Thing in the Ice, 3 lands, and a Lightning Bolt. T3 opponent casts Cathartic Reunion discarding 2 Stinkweed Imp and a Golgari Thug to dredge for 14. My T3 I remove Narcomoeba, 3 Prized Amalgams and a Bloodghast with Anger of the Gods. Drew the second Anger to keep his board clear. Tried to block Awoken Horror but when I showed Cryptic Command + Mystic Sanctuary he scooped with ~7 card left in library.

Round 2 vs. Eldrazi Tron

Game 1:

Opponent couldn't get t3 tron but managed a Chalice of the Void on 1, no can-trips or bolts for me. Played a Karn, Scion of Urza and decided to take an Expedition Map to try to get tron instead of a Mind Stone (He forgot that he couldn't cast it with Chalice). Remand-ed a Thought-Knot Seer twice and Cryptic-ed his Reality Smasher which flipped a Thing. Tried to stabilize with a Walking Ballista but before attacks I Archmage's Charm-ed to gain control of his only blocker. Game 2.

Sideboard:

Out: 3 Opt

In: Damping Sphere, Summary Dismissal, Ceremonious Rejection

Game 2:

I had my only Snow-Covered Mountain in my opening hand which threw off my t3 Archmage's Charm and t4 Cryptic. I got lucky when my opponent still couldn't get tron until t5. Couldn't counter a Thought-Knot Seer and he took a titi but I also had a Magmatic Sinkhole to remove it. Kept countering his threats until I managed to get Ral, Izzet Viceroy out, -3 his Ballista on 1, he pings Ral and I keep using his +1 and countering his spells until I managed to ult Ral. He scoops.

Round 3 vs. Rakdos Vampires

Game 1:

Opponent was playing a vampire-themed midrange deck with Vampire Nocturnus, Gifted Aetherborn, Stromkirk Captain, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord along with the standard black cards like Liliana of the Veil, Fatal Push, Dark Confidant, and Thoughtseize. T1 Cavern of Souls was a pain but I could still draw a card with remand to dig for removal which I found in a bolt + snapcaster. I won with another snapcaster + bolt.

Sideboard:

Out: 2 Opt

In: 2 Anger of the Gods

Game 2:

Removed Kalitas with sinkhole and Force of Negation-ed his lotv when he tried to remove a titi which he did push later. Stabilized at 7 life by slamming a blood moon to get rid of Stensia Bloodhall and Lavaclaw Reaches but next turn he played Chandra, Awakened Inferno which I removed via bolt + sinkhole. Had to race him and beat him to death with a snapcaster and a Brazen Borrower. Won at 2 life.

Round 4 vs. Boros Burn

Game 1:

Had to remand a Boros Charm twice until t4 blood moon. Stabilized at 2 life but almost died to Searing Blood on my titi. Beat him to death with an awoken horror.

Sideboard:

Out: 2 Opt

In: 2 Anger of the Gods. At this point I didn't have any Dragon's Claw in my sideboard so I knew this was my worst match.

Game 2:

Had to mull to 6 which opponent was happy about. Fought through two Eidolon of the Great Revel and stabilized at 6 life. Slammed Ral, -3 on Monastery Swiftspear, and +1 until he ulted, countering every burn spell without using a snapcaster. Opponent scooped after I used bolt + mystic sanctuary + ral emblem. Showed me a hand of 3 Searing Blood + 1 Path to Exile (from sb to get rid of titi).

Overall:

I did not lose a single game this FNM but I knew I got very lucky vs Eldrazi Tron Game 2 and burn both games.

Changes to mainboard:

Out: 1 Snow-Covered Mountain In: 1 Steam Vents

Note: Even though most lists run 1 Mountain it still felt really bad having it in my opening hand. This time I wasn't punished but I can't rely on that every time. An additional steam vents keeps me at 5 red sources without blood moon and it acts as an additional Island for Mystic Sanctuary

Changes to sideboard:

Out: Relic of Progenitus In: Shenanigans

Note: Tonight I wasn't against a Stoneforge Mystic deck that my friend uses so I was pretty vulnerable to any artifact deck. Since I already have 6 cards in the sideboard that hate on graveyard decks and only ceremonious rejection for artifacts, I decided to put a recurrable hate card that can help deal with a variety of decks.

Well, considered this runs no Liliana of the Veil, Wasteland, Thoughtseize etc. I'd consider it a budgetdeck :D Duocat

Since this is a DCM deck, here are a couple staples to consider:

rdean14 on Card creation challenge

Liliana Vess is my big, big second ability planeswalker. I genuinely can't remember her Ultimate and tend to switch her discard ability with Liliana of the Veil .

I feel my favorite archtype: Stax doesn't have an adequate planewalker. My current decks feature Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Teferi, Time Raveler , and Dovin Baan in one, and all the Elspeths in the other, as it is a more sacrifice and token oriented build (proliferating Smokestack is super fun, especially if you have loads of tokens).

Venser, Lord of the Ephemeral

Legendary Planeswalker - Venser

+1: Exile target permanent you neither own nor control. Return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.

-1: Until you next turn, whenever a player taps a permanent for mana, that permanent gains phasing.

-10: You get an emblem with "Whenever a permanent enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, that player exiles a permanent they control."

3


This would be absolutely ideal for a stax build.

another favorite of mine, which features in my stax builds, is Mass Land Destruction. I want either or Commander (Creature or Planeswalker) for MLD.

I use Selvala, Explorer Returned for mine I've also seen Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , The Gitrog Monster , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Lord Windgrace .

You should seriously consider replacing most or all of your fogs with Genesis , Spore Frog , and Kami of False Hope . A Green/White shell with Eladamri's Call and maybe Chord of Calling if you want to go really creature heavy. You would need discard of some sort, I think a jump-start spell like Radical Idea or Chemister's Insight would be the best option in your main Bant colors, but Raven's Crime , Collective Brutality , and Liliana of the Veil are fantastic options in black. Running counters may also be nice, Nimble Obstructionist is especially interesting.
