Liliana Vess Discussion

Good call! The tutors in the Maybeboard are there cause I currently do not own a copy or can't afford one at the moment. They're certainly going in once I manage to secure them.
Hatred never crossed my mind as I was too preoccupied with combo base finishes for this deck. It's an interesting alternative to win.
Aminatou, the Fateshifter was in my first cut but I subsequently axed her because, being creatureless, I've very limited ways to protect my Planeswalker from combat damage (besides blocking with Yennett). My view of Aminatou, is that she needs to stick around longer to accrue incremental value from the use of her abilities. Her "Blink" ability is useful to help me reset my Mana Vault and Grim Monolith when I was play testing her, so that's a plus point.
Liliana Vess gives me instant value by tutoring a card to top of library (usually Nexus of Fate or Expropriate) for Yennett to cast them for free. Tezzeret the Seeker functions as a 5 CMC artifact tutor that can retire after he fetches me the desired artifact, so I'm not too worried about protecting him.
Thanks for the suggestions and help. Keep the ideas flowing mate, looking forward to more "quirky and odd" ideas for this eccentric deck.

Looking for cards that can help me bring out Dragons for free. So any card that does this sort of thing, really.
I know a small list already, but I was wondering what else there is so I can try to narrow and hone in on the best cards.
Here's what I already know of that do this sort of thing, in one way or another. In no particular order, because I'm lazy.
I'm trying to stay away from graveyard tricks, so please keep those suggestions to a minimum. Thank you.
Cards I know of Show
Kaalia of the Vast: A good Commander, but I want to go 5C so I'll just have her as a 4 CMC creature and if she stays on the field, great. If not, well she's a nice distraction.
Maelstrom Archangel: Honestly, she's going to be my Commander.
Fist of Suns: While this isn't "free", per se, it does allow faster play for larger spells.
Genesis Wave: Obviously.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow: Gets me Planeswalkers and Legendary Dragons. It's a shame Doubling Season isn't Legendary, otherwise that'd be a neat little combo piece. Still works with the aforementioned Genesis Wave, though.
The Ur-Dragon: Obviously.
Intet, the Dreamer: Would need topdeck fixing but it is possible.
Teneb, the Harvester: Technically it does work.
Descendants' Path: Again, requires topdecking.
Call to the Kindred: Potent and powerful.
Cryptic Gateway: Yup.
See the Unwritten: Yeah.
Stitch Together: Graveyard works.
Sarkhan Unbroken: His ultimate does this.
Sarkhan, Dragonsoul: As does his.
Tamiyo, Field Researcher: As does hers.
Xenagos, the Reveler: As does his... Man there's a lot of Planeswalkers that do this, isn't there?
Garruk, Caller of Beasts: I guess he does if the Dragon has in it?
Liliana Vess: She does, but I'd have to manage graveyard tricks in addition to the rest of the deck. I'm trying to stay away from making it too complex.
Liliana, Death Wielder: Which means cards like her and others are probably a no-go as well.
Samut, the Tested: I mean, technically?
Ugin, the Spirit Dragon: Oh yeah, definitely.
As I said, I'm trying to stay away from Graveyard tricks but if it is cheap enough and easy to pull off, I guess it works. I'm looking to constantly grow my boardstate every turn, not try and rebuild it from scratch.

hello really like your deck
Cloudstone Curio with Rooftop Storm is the combo you are probably looking for boucing Gray Merchant of Asphodel to drain everyone or bouncing Grave Defiler to cast all zombie in your deck but you could stick with only Rooftop Storm + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain
for the cut it really depend on how you play the deck the problem is that you are trying to do everything you have control/agro/combo going on you should pick combo/agro or control/combo
for the card that in my opinion arent worth to play are : Consuming Aberration , Fatestitcher, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Liliana's Reaver, Noosegraf Mob, Stitcher Geralf, Undead Alchemist, liliana, death's majesty, Liliana Vess , Cancel, Counterspell, Hero's Downfall, Murder, Negate, Silumgar's Command, Quietus Spike, Sword of Vengeance, Freed from the Real, Training Grounds, Army of the Damned, Dark Salvation, Rise from the Tides, Ruinous Path also cut some of the worst land like Dimir Guildgate and run some more basic
for the card that you should be adding to the list: Grave Defiler, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Phyrexian Altar, Skullclamp, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Bitter Ordeal could be good if your local meta is a lot of food chain/flash hulk or combo deck , Diabolic Intent and all the other tutor if you have the money Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
ps: my recommendation fit for a agro/combo deck

My mill deck is very effective, efficiency and consistent. The plan is, controlling the game hard and winning with a mill combo in priority. For example:
It's helpful, if u play a lot of tutors. For example Liliana Vess as a budget card with high performance.
If that doesn't work. I play my commander and starting mill - getting voltron capability und just mill until death :)

@DrkNinja: Well, I have 4 cards to choose one out of. What would you choose, or what would be a better option entirely? Maybe you could check Comment 4 about this? Actually, I'll just list them:
2: Liliana Vess
5: What would you choose in their stead?
I'd really like some ideas, as I can only put 99/100 in this deck, & Not buff it to 103/104. Ideas?

@DrkNinja: Reduced it to 99. I'll add the advantages for each card...
What do you think is the best out of these 3.5?

All cut. Not sure if you prefer Liliana Vess over Vraska, Golgari Queen, but since you hated the latter, I'm pretty sure Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's -8 can compliment this, unless only stuff like Meekstone/Ensnaring Bridge can help for stuff Power <3. Ideas? Or should I just put back in either Demonic Tutor, or Counterflux? (Thran Temporal Gateway is a better replacement than Sunbird's Invocation anyway it seems...)
Any thoughts, DrkNinja?
