Liliana, the Last Hope Discussion

JP-Romero on Eight Rack Smallpox

PhyrexianPreator, Liliana, the Last Hope is not good for this version of the deck. This is a creatureless 8 rack variant, focused on getting the most value possible from Smallpox . As such, Lili's -2 and -7 are dead in this deck.

Guffawkle, That would depend on the meta of wherever you play it. I personally want to keep it mono black. I don't think the deck really needs "removal" as the aim of 8 rack is to have stuff never enter the battlefield in the first place.

I would try two copies of Liliana, the Last Hope either in the side or main. I have a friend who plays 8 rack. Hasn't had any complaints thus far.

of course it could be a preference thing. Up-voted your deck because I like 8 rack.

n0bunga: Sorry for the long wait, haven't looked at my modern decks in a while and I never got a notification (odd...)

I think that the extra trophy preboard is more necessary than Liliana, the Last Hope, and Chandra is in over Angrath mainly for the cmc and slight utility over sheer power.

Idk, I think 3 BBE is fine right now, sometimes I do want the fourth, but most of the time I think it's good.

Liliana, the Last Hope comes to mind as well. Once again, not exactly budget but it won’t destroy you bank account either.

Trying to understand the strategy of the card choices.

Basically choke the opponent with Spreading Seas and Field of Ruin to reduce their answers to Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Liliana, the Last Hope and Grave Titan? And Unmoored Ego also removes their outs for the late game?

Nice List!

Cards I'd consider adding:

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth can be a huge swing.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter has tons of utility for little mana.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant comes down early, protects herself, can allow Atraxa to kill someone with 3 hits and her ult makes any threats you have very hard to deal with.

Oath of Gideon makes tokens to protect your walkers with, generally speeds up your ult clocks, and enables some sneaky combos, like allowing some walkers to instantly ult with doubling season that previously couldn't or allowing Tezzeret the Seeker to find The Chain Veil and stick around to untap it.

Oath of Teferi is a bit expensive manawise, but allows your walkers to go bonkers.

Constant Mists, Spike Weaver, Norn's Annex or Sphere of Safety protect your walkers as well as your face, unlike Propaganda.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty can block, provides hexproof to the team as well as you (it's surprising how many annoying things say "target player") and comes with a built in Gavony Township to pump your tokens with.

This is very meta-dependent, but you look somewhat light on removal. I'd consider at least one 4-mana wipe (Damnation, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Supreme Verdict) and one or two more exile effects for hard to remove must-answer threats (Descend upon the Sinful, Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, etc.) unless you really never feel like you need them.

Potential Cuts:

I've seen Deploy the Gatewatch get bad/no hits too many times to be a huge fan of it. Definitely a flavorwin though.

I'm not sure how necessary Gilded Lotus is, considering all your other ramp. Your Landbase doesn't look like you need the colorfixing, and 5 mana seems like a lot to still be ramping, even if you get 3 mana back.

Vraska the Unseen just ended up being an overpriced killspell most of the times I played her, and even if she ults, the tokens still have to untap, and not be blocked, to kill someone.

Liliana, the Last Hope's ult is very nice, but imho not really worth her other 2 pretty useless abilities.

Ajani Goldmane and Ajani, Caller of the Pride are ok, but I dislike how much they rely on you already having creatures to be good.

Lastly, seeing as how high quality your landbase is, I'd consider carefully cutting back on the basics and replacing Cultivate with a Farseek and maybe a Nature's Lore. I'm running 37 lands with a pretty trashy base and rarely run into problems, but if you're rather safe then sorry when it comes to lands, that's understandable.

Good luck and have fun playing!

Doing the final touches for my Varina edh and curious if Liliana, the Last Hope is something to consider since I have a copy of her. esper zombies Heres the deck list. I think I have enough there, but MAYBE I could cut for a little more recursion?
