Liliana, the Last Hope Discussion

Sargeras on Modern Zombies

I'll have to agree with previous comments that this is just a mono-black devotion deck that you decided to throw some recursive creatures into, along with Lord of the Accursed and called mono-black zombies. This isn't to say the deck is bad, as a Mono-black Midrange player myself I will attest this. But this is far from a Zombie tribal deck as advertised.

If you really wanted to build a Zombie Tribal deck, I'd reccomend a green splash, which would easily be affordable considering the amount of fetches you play, in order to play Collected Company.

Another fatty you should be playing in zombie tribal is Plague Belcher. Since you can easily kill a Gravecrawler or any other recursive creature, it's a 5/4 menance that can easily take over a game (With Menace to boot!)

Of course if you were to play zombies, cards like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead all become excellent options.

If you aren't going to take advantage of the Zombie tribe, I'd recommend moving Gifted Aetherborn to the maindeck, and cutting your zombie sub-theme since basically all your creatures turns 1-3 can't really block anything at all.

Also, cards like Lashwrithe can show up because with fatties like Kalitas you can just win games swinging for upwards of 9 power with lifelink a turn. (Also goes really well with Obliterator)

Also, if this deck is meant to be played competitively, run Liliana, the Last Hope, if in the sideboard if not the mainboard. The reason for this is becuase she can hold off small aggressive creatures, as well as fetch your zombies that you are already playing (cards like Gravecrawler and Bloodghast, and the best part, SHE CAN RECUR FULMINATOR MAGES! something this deck needs to do to beat decks like tron.

If you want any further help, feel free to look at my primer for all mono-black needs!

I attended 2 game days, I went 3-1 only losing to a control deck, and omg our match (3 rounds) went on for about an hour and twenty minutes! It determined who of the two of us made top 4. I was playing this hybrid delirium/ +1/+1 counters deck with Walking Ballista, Winding Constrictor etc.

I didn't get all of my cards that I had ordered to replace my former delirium cards all on time so I had to play some different choices, which included things like a Ulvenwald Hydra (Could fetch a Blighted Fen for a last-resort answer to an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger which my deck had a lack of answers for if cast game 1), a Liliana, the Last Hope (as a 1x of since I sold 3/4 of mine), 1x Rhonas the Indomitable, a 1x Liliana, Death's Majesty (which I have to add is a lot of fun with things like Noxious Gearhulk and Verdurous Gearhulk, among a few other things because I was lacking cards.

It was back and forth us asking how many cards the other had in hand because he had Thought-Knot Seers and Harsh Scrutiny, while I had a playset of Transgress the Minds after sideboarding, to him constantly exiling my Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets, Verdurous Gearhulk (only had 2/4 unfortunately for gameday the other 2 were still in the mail) with Declaration in Stones, Stasis Snares and Anguished Unmakings.

Then if that was not enough to slow our matches down, he was playing Authority of the Consuls after sideboarding, as well as Kambal, Consul of Allocation to punish me and all my removal (Had a playset of Fatal Pushes, 3 Never / Returns, and 2 Grasp of Darkness to gain lots of life as well of course from 3x Noxious Gearhulk which he was using on things like my Mindwrack Demon, Verdurous Gearhulk, Ishkanah, Grafwidow among others... I was using 2x Noxious Gearhulk (one main/one side) myself too which was pretty funny. Beyond that he was stealing my stuff with mainboard Gonti, Lord of Luxurys of which he had I think 2-3 of and he managed to beat me with one of my own Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets. Also 2x Demon of Dark Schemes he had which he also used t recur things, but mainly his own, although he did at times kill off my Ishkanah, Grafwidow spider tokens.

That had to be my longest game of magic, I ended up losing 2-1 after drawing 5 lands in a row and him slowly whittling down my health all the while with a Gonti, Lord of Luxury I could not afford to trade one of my creatures with, this was when I already had like 11 mana available which was lame. But I got third place anyways. Despite being long it was a challenging, yet fun match.

The second gameday I went 1-3, the problem is my deck was inconsistent with it being rather a hybrid of two strategies (delirium and counters) since I was lacking some of my much needed +1/+1 related cards. I had to mulligan a lot due to lack of lands showing up despite me using 24 which is fine. I forfeited my last match too someone I know because if I was to win he would lose his chance at top 4 and I already being 1-2 had nothing to gain from winning so I let him advance, he went on to being in the final match for the champion playmat but in round 3 because his opponent had a really, really good opening hand with zombies he just got steamrolled in the third round when they were 1-1. But the one who won is also a friend of mine who never got a gameday mat since he started gamedays in OGW, although he came close with an Aether Revolt one when it was between me and him for the aether revolt champion.

You attend any game days?

Thanks for the comment!

The reason I personally do not play push in this deck is because I'm usually tapping out to cast my spells and cracking fetches. This usually means that push doesn't hit everything I need it to. This conclusion was reached through playing in my list.

Since I have a more aggressive meta, I do not play Geralf's Messenger since 3 cmc puts it at odds with the other 3 drops I play. I am considering adding Liliana, the Last Hope, as it would help me in that.

Oh sorry for the late reply, what you described anyways sounds like a pretty awesome prerelease when you had those Cut / Ribbons for two headed giant and all.

I'm actually playing in the Amonkhet league event at my lgs, and currently I have a deck with a Glorybringer of my own, along with a Rhonas the Indomitable which were both in my starting packs. Its pretty powerful.

I however have postponed finishing my modern infect deck, and i'm now working on mono tron which is a lot cheaper to build. I still will get around to finishing infect at a later point. I had a Nissa, Steward of Elements which I was going to try in infect, but now I think I'm going to be trading it along with some cash towards a Diabolic Intent invocation. I regret parting with all my former expeditions, masterpieces etc, which included: Windswept Heath, Prairie Stream, Fetid Heath, and Sword of Feast and Famine. I think now I'm going to start holding onto these masterpeices (at least the lower end ones) to build my collection further. Many are very playable in edh which I love to play anyways.

I was getting tons of things to build mono tron in return for buying 2 Chalice of the Voids and trading a friend an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. I also will be receiving other goodies from him like a Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion for my Sliver Overlord edh deck.

To buy these chalices however I sold off 3/4 of my Liliana, the Last Hopes, my Grim Flayers, Traverse the Ulvenwalds and a few other things to instead build counters around Winding Constrictor, Walking Ballista etc, and its now in fact almost done. However not in time for game day sadly, so I will have to make do with some substitute cards.

Here is my new modern deck anyways,

. I'm not too sure if your familiar with this lesser used variant of tron, but its one that seeks to play a much more controlling game. All I need for it is my Academy Ruins + Mindslaver (which is one of the ways to win with this), a Oblivion Stone, 2 Thirst for Knowledge and 2 Condescend, all of which I'm buying from the credit from my former delirium deck. Then its finished, but if you have any feedback for it possibly then that would be appreciated. I'm going to play this for a good while before either finishing infect or building something else like affinity which I might as well considering I do have a playset of Inkmoth Nexuss' sitting around now.

I know the sideboard needs a ton of work to reflect my local meta better, which includes Living End, merfolk, tron, eldrazi tron, knightfall, among a few others.

Argeaux Yeaaa Walkers aren't a huge threat, outside of the Saheeli Decks. There are about 3 other Walkers that are typically played, Liliana, the Last Hope, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. And even then, they aren't in decks that are played more competitively, like Ensoul Aggro, MonoRed, or Bant Humans.

Since Frontier is a format extending all the way back to M15, I like the option of Duress more.

BobTheStrong- Lord of the Accursed is 3, and doesn't do much for my strategy. I could give all of my zombies menace by playing Graf Harvest for 1.

Dread Wanderer is meh. For 1 it should come in untapped, otherwise I could use Diregraf Ghoul. The reanimation isn't "casting", so it wouldn't combo well with Diregraf Colossus, and if I have 3 mana, I could cast something more useful like Geralf's Messenger, or Liliana, the Last Hope.

The deck is faster than the list presents. Playtest, and see if you don't like it. Thanks for the input!

I played a similar deck to this during EMN, but of course it didn't have as much cool tech.

I used Liliana, the Last Hope to go wide.

So, when little Zombies started piling out of this deck on to the field, it made me very happy.

What I was most glad about was how this made the Marvel decks pay for their random nature.

Those decks were really dull to watch, particularly if they were playing each other.

Seeing one get stomped in the final was priceless.
