Liliana of the Veil Discussion

I really think it's worth it. Against a blue deck I'd much rather slam a Choke than a Liliana of the Veil. It's just a quick free win, like slamming Blood Moon against a tapped out Abzan. Against blue you have to wait for an opening between the counter magic, but they do usually tap out at some point, even if it's to drop a Jace, the Mind Sculptor.
I think there's enough blue right now to justify it. Not just from Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Death's Shadow decks, but Storm is mostly blue, blue moon is still out there with Pestermite, Izzet shenanigans, etc.

It's only come up a couple times so far but it seems like a good fit for the deck, combines spell damage in the air with potential extra cards and can be thrown away to Liliana of the Veil for partial value.

Not a bad idea. I like having a mix of 4 drops on the side that can come in for Bloodbraid Elf. Right now I only have 3, an Obstinate Baloth for Burning Inquiry decks and Liliana of the Veil mirrors, a Huntmaster of the Fells Flip for grindy matches, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for additional graveyard hate. They all also gain life. Gonti, Lord of Luxury would fill a somewhat similar role, but would probably be better against Jeskai or Dimir style control. Hitting a Jace, the Mind Sculptor with him would be awesome.

Thanks for the feedback Toak83! I swapped out Birds of Paradise for Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope like you suggested. I agree that Arena is a not so good idea. It's more of a Mono Black devotion card. Too clunky for this build. I swapped 2 Bob for 2 Grim Flayer to lessen that brutal instant death combo Bitterblossom + Dark Confidant

I would run Street Wraith over Liliana of the Veil. Cut Raging Ravine and Treetop Village for 4 Verdant Catacombs, and find room for Gurmag Angler. Also, swap Grim Flayer for another Dark Confidant.
Arguel's Blood Fast Flip is interesting as a pseudo Bob.

Well, this is the point where it becomes a real life consideration as much as a deckbuilding consideration. Certain cards cost money and if you want the best cards you have to pay. But the tricky part comes from the fact that the best cards aren't always the most expensive. Lightning Bolt is a good card, also a very cheap card. I use 4 in my Modern deck. But Liliana of the Veil is also a good card, and I use her too. That card is much more expensive than bolt. But my deck wouldn't work without her.
Fortunately, I've owned my playset of Lilianas for a very long time, long before she reached the current price point she's at. But I think "could this deck work if I play a cheaper card" isn't a rabbit hole you want to go down. Dark Tutelage is a much cheaper card than Dark Confidant, but time has told us that this card doesn't work in the same capacity. It comes down a turn later and can't attack for damage. You better believe that if Dark Tutelage were comparable to Dark Confidant in any way the price point between the two cards would be very different. But they aren't. And if you're at the point where you have to make these types of considerations I feel like it's either time to scrap it or time to save up the budget and buy the cards you want.

APPLE01DOJ I feel like the deck overall is fairly weak at least at my locals, simply because most of my opponents know when it is coming (i only play 3-4 decks in paper modern). However because this deck runs creatures unlike standard 8-rack, I can usually find wins using just Pack Rat or the power of Liliana of the Veil however. I would definitely put the power level of the deck as average at best. It tends to lose to aggro as expected which is very popular these days.
