Liliana, the Last Hope Discussion

I'd suggest Liliana, the Last Hope, but I know you're trying to stay budget, so I won't. Cemetery Recruitment is a hidden power in a deck like this.

You know this deck isn't standard, right? Standard is a format that contains only the sets Kaladesh, Aether Revolt, Amonkhet, Hour of Devastation, and Ixalan. You can change the format to Modern or Casual.

Well, first, you will probably never under any circumstance be able to cast something like Garruk, Apex Predator in Modern. Its just way to heavy of a creature if youre not using a lot of ramp.

Next, you should have at least seven strong removal cards in the deck. Fatal Push, Abrupt Decay, Walk the Plank, etc. youll want them to be mostly 2 or less CMC, most Modern games are won between turns 4 and 7. Occasionally youll see turbo fog decks or extreme control decks that can develop later, but those are rare. Tragic Slip is actually a pretty good card, but you need sacrifice fodder of enough removal to pair with it to get the upper end of the cards utility.

You need a solid win condition. I suggest cards like Lotleth Troll, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Death's Shadow, Silhana Ledgewalker, and Bassara Tower Archer if you want to do counters. I have had a lot of success with a deck structured around those cards. You basically throw Deaths Shadow into the graveyard and use Varolz to scavenge 13 counters from him onto Silhana Ledgewalker who is Hexproof and can only be blocked by creatures with flying. Throw a Predator's Strike on top of it and Silhana becomes a 17/17 with Trample too. Its super fast paced and pretty cheap.

Land MATTERS in modern. Like, a whole lot. I understand Fetches are expensive like Verdant Catacombs, but there are budget friendly alternatives. Llanowar Wastes, Blooming Marsh, City of Brass and even Field of Ruin can be used. Any lands that come in tapped will set you behind your opponent 99% of the time.

Diabolic Tutor is a dead turn in Modern that takes up a 4 CMC slot. Its pretty much the worst tutor in the game. Grisly Salvage, Jarad's Orders, and Treasured Find are probably the best toolbox available for Golgari in the tutor department.

Fog will usually stop creatures, but it doesnt stop non-combat damage. So, modern Boros Burn, 8-Rack, Storm, Cheerios, and other decks that deal direct player damage make it pretty much a sideboard card unless you go Abzan and slot in Aegis of the Gods, Leyline of Sanctity, or some other card that prevents direct player damage. I would recommend relying on low cost spells instead of trying to stall the game for big plays later on. Instead, you could try Vines of Vastwood, Heroic Intervention, or something else to prevent damage to your creatures that doesnt cost a lot of mana and can help you win earlier matchups.

If you want to run a planeswalker, Liliana, the Last Hope is a fun one that can keep a good pace for n Modern.

Thats really the best I can offer you, I know its a lot, but Modern Golgari is especially fragile right now. Thats why you almost always see a third color splashed into them.

In my humble opinion Liliana, the Last Hope is a novelty item, and a win more card that will fade out with standard rotation from jund lists like, Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip, Olivia Voldaren, Courser of Kruphix did.

Ruin Raider - is a likely contender to be Dark Confidant 5 & 6. Since Dark Confidant is a removal magnet, and one of (if not THE) best card in the deck, playing 6 would be ideal.

Since we are discussing the potential of cards, i think its stupid to "name decks" that play it and have large meta share, for a card that just entered standard.
Not to mention that while its true "cards with large meta share are powerful", its contra positive is not. ("cards that don't have large meta share are weak" - which is false)Thus when discussing the potential a freshly printed card, i would try to look and think farther than the typical "its shit if its not in T1 lists".

I can't think of a single BG/x deck that runs more than 4x Dark Confidant MB and only on occasion may you find a Phyrexian Arena in the side. The main reason BG/x wouldn't run this is mana cost. 1) pinging yourself for 3 more than you already do isn't ideal and 2) the 3 mana slot is taken by Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope.

StLouisNY I already tried Liliana, the Last Hopein the main but it is useless in most of the matchups (like Tron, Grixis Death's Shadow).

Yeah it is slow and in most of the aggro matchups you have board it out but it works great with Liliana of the Veil.

Maybe try it with Liliana, the Last Hope, it seems slow, but in a grindy format like commander. Plus the Emblem is insane in zombie tribal.

Based on this current list, I would suggest swapping a Liliana of the Veil for a Liliana, the Last Hope and run 2 LOTVs in MB and 1 in SB. Reason for this is that Last Hope is better against Lingering Souls and ramp decks.

Ancestral Vision is a great card, but it can be slow. Now that Opt is modern legal it just feels like a better fit for the rest of the deck.

I understand that Remand gives you the cantrip, but is there a reason you're not running harder counterspells in mainboard like Mana Leak, Spell Snare, or Countersquall?

Hey there,

Been playing Faeries solidly since about March '17, and I'll offer a few thoughts on some of the card choices based on my experiences.

1 - Ancestral Vision... I love the theory of the card. The card advantage when you can pull it off is huge, but it can be too slow against combo decks/burn/elves. I had tried running it as a 3 of with 2 As Foretold. I will say, there are few things more fun than hard-casting AV for free on turn 3. AF also helps free up mana for counterspells and if it sticks to the board, let's you activate Tar Pits & Mutavaults without worrying about being unable to cast anything. Generally right now I prefer Opt strictly for reliability. When I cast it I know 100% I'll benefit from it instead of hoping it's still relevant in 4 turns.

2 - Liliana of the Veil Amazing Card and made my deck 100% better when I included 3 of her (2 MB 1 SB) though I also like combining her with 1 Liliana, the Last Hope in the Mainboard. Just too many matchups where killing a X/1 creature is amazing.

3 - Tasigur, the Golden Fang Tasi is just a nice card to have access to. Not only can you possibly drop a 4/5 on turn 3, but his ability and the potential to buy back your counterspells is just solid mid to late-game. Not saying it's right/wrong, but my deck runs Tasi as a 61st card just to keep the creature/counterspell mix where I want it and then have a "shield" that can help deal with a larger threat than the faeries can.

I've tried several different builds of this deck (including the Smuggler's Copter build) and it's just super fun no matter how you build it. Always glad to see the Faeries get more publicity!
