Liliana, the Last Hope Discussion

bananacustard on U/B Control for Modern

I think you're right when it comes to having a tiny bit more countermagic. I really do want to add 1 Spell Snare over a discard spell. The chance of drawing a discard spell if I remove 1 falls down 5% which is 1 in 20 games so it's not that big of a deal.

As for Delve, it get's awkward with Search for Azcanta  Flip and Snapcaster Mage. I used to run 1 Murderous Cut and decided to run Dismember over it after a while. More fetches would help, but then I would be running either less Field of Ruin or less basics which hurts in certain matchups. At the point I might as well just change to Grixis Shadow.

Not really a "threat" but I think 1 Liliana, the Last Hope would probably be a good addition. Getting back a Snapcaster Mage can be huge later in the game. If drawn early, I can just straight out win the game with an early emblem if I have enough protection.

Hello all!

I have a poor Zendikar Misty Rainforest that needs a new home where it will be loved and played. While there are some cards I am interested in, I don't have any real priorities for trade right now, so I am more than happy to look through binders. With that said, here are some cards I might enjoy:

... I had a much longer list last time I tried to post this, but it was swallowed by the eternal hunger of poor internet connection. Anyway, if you're interested in a Misty Rainforest, let me know!

A few more recent updates:

  1. I've gone back to 2 maindeck Snapcaster Mage and 2 Liliana, the Last Hope. I've ran into too many issues of running out of gas with the uptick in control decks, so I have decided to slightly increase the ability of the deck to grind.
  2. I have been increasingly disappointed with the performance of Liliana of the Veil, so she has been fully moved to the sideboard.

Back when I was making this deck, we still had the planeswalker legend rule, and it basically made me test a variety of walkers, and see what worked best. In my experience, Gideons have worked the best by far, especially since the new ruling. The reason for that is they don't really need any setup or protection, as they all basically protect themselves, and can all function as finishers.

As for your deck, I used to play Phyrexian Arena in this deck as a consistent draw engine, but it killed me a lot more than I wanted it to. This is what made me switch to Night's Whisper. I think Bitterblossom is great in the tokens deck, but just like arena, it puts a clock on your head the turn you play it, something I'd avoid in a non-aggressive deck.

If anything, I'd play the Gideon package since it's so effective, and they all compliment each other. If you want other walker suggestions, Ob Nixilis Reignited and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both powerful walkers and decently cheap cash-wise. I've found that both Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope work decently, although one makes you discard cards which is kind of a non-bo in control, but I find it's still very useful.

Honestly, the other Sorins are great when you have a board but pretty garbo in a control deck like mine.

If you want any other tips/suggestions let me know, and if you've got a list I'd be interested in seeing it.

Since you don't have Goyfs yet, I would try to maximize the value of Grim Flayer here. I run BUG Traverse with 4x Flayer and 4x Goyf, and I very often find myself Traversing for Flayer instead, he really is that good. To make him his best, a full set of Mishra's Bauble will go a long way towards enabling Delirium and providing graveyard fuel to power out early Tasigurs and flip JVP quickly. You might also consider Architects of Will, since it counts as multiple card types towards delirium, which should in theory be helpful when running Delve threats next to Flayer.

While I do enjoy wrecking people with Ashiok, it really isn't the greatest mainboard card in the current hyper-aggressive meta. 4x Liliana of the Veil would be ideal here, but I understand if it's not in the budget. You might consider replacing a couple or all of the Ashioks with Liliana, the Last Hope, which should be right at home here, recurring your threats, killing small creatures and helping fuel the graveyard.

Also, have you tested Cast Down yet? I run two in BUG Traverse and BUG Midrange and the card has overperformed. It's about as close to Terminate as we have in our colors and hits nearly everything that's relevant in the current meta.

Lastly, have you tried Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet? He lines up well against some of the top decks currently, and is probably overall stronger than Ashiok.

SeekerofSecrets, TheAlexGnan, tlhunter07

So, the deck has been performing quite well. After taking out into the meta I've made a few changes. Opts are out, more removal is in, and man do I love playing 4x Anger of the Gods.

But I still have 1 sideboard spot left. Once upon a time I was toying with including 3-4x Leyline of the Void, but it's too narrow and expensive. Not going down that route. I'll take my chances that Hollow One is the breakout degenerate deck of the summer and won't be around next summer. Humans is neutral to good, Affinity would probably be insane if I had experience in the matchup (seriously, I never see it). RG Tron is okay to bad, Eldrazi of any kind is awful, Burn is good, Storm is fantastic. Mardu Pyromancer I don't have a good feel for, but I think it would be okay to good if I could figure out the matchup. Jund and Control are both decent, but draw-dependent.

With all of that, Liliana, the Last Hope and Search for Azcanta  Flip are my top considerations, with Stormbreath Dragon or possibly Goblin Rabblemaster as secondary options. I think I want another card to bring in against Jund and Control. But I really don't know. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the suggestion Flooremoji, Liliana, the Last Hope is an awesome card and one of my favorites. Check out my deck TWIN LILIANA CONTROL (Mono-black Devotion), which features that Liliana and Liliana of the Veil.

In this deck, I didn't include any planeswalkers to maximize the usefulness of Aether Vial.
