Liliana Vess Discussion

strembl7 on Rakdos the Defiler

12 hours ago

So, proposed edit list

I ran a list with a similar number of ramp spells to make Sen Triplets work, and 3-drop artifacts are really hard on your early game. 2-drops curve out so nicely in comparison. Here are a few changes on that note:

Lose: Rakdos Cluestone for Rakdos Signet

Lose: Cryptolith Fragment  Flip for Fellwar Stone

Lose: Burnished Hart for Coalition Relic because you want as few permanents as possible to maximize value when you have to sac half. It's less mana, and fewer permanents.

Lose: Fulminator Mage for Cultivator's Caravan. Fulminator is really very 1v1 geared, and Cultivator hits hard when you no longer need the mana.

Lose: Tormenting Voice for Cathartic Reunion. I've run both and if your hand is sad enough to want to blow mana on card advantage, you probably want to cycle as much hand as possible. If budget allows, Wheel of Fortune is oodles better, or the "miracle" wheel the name of which I cannot remember.

Lose: Liliana Vess. She is too slow for this deck and doesn't put out enough pressure. Consider something like Earthquake maybe? or any of the suggestions below.

Lose: Curse of Bloodletting for Furnace of Rath and/or Gratuitous Violence for multiplayer and more suicideyness and synergy with the Wound Reflection.

Other possible inclusions:Praetor's Grasp is usually a Sol Ring but can otherwise be the perfect answer if there's a problem on the board.

Lightning Reaver because awesome for multiplayer.

Coldsteel Heart Is a great rock for 2 mana. Take a look at your artifact base when all the edits are done and see where/if you can fit it.

Scorched Ruins is an amazing way to hedge mana against Rakdos if your meta isn't blowing up targeted lands. Or if you have a crucible... ;)

Gamble

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is so incredibly badass when you're connecting with demons. No backswing to worry about, and more damage to your opponents. In multiplayer this guy is king.

Necropotence suits the suicidey theme and refills your hand better than any card in the game.

Ashes to Ashes is better than Terminate most of the time. Your colors just can't stop Eldrazi once they're out usually.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots I think is really good in this deck.

Give Larceny some consideration after playing the deck a bit. See how much your demons are actually connecting. Great value.

Pain Magnification is a solid include given all your flying shenanigans.

HawkRider on The God of Milling

So, you've got some pretty good cards here for a mill deck. It's rather solid. There are a couple of cards I can recommend though.

First, it may be nice to run a couple of token generators to get you more mill from Phenax, God of Deception's ability. Blue/Black isn't amazing for this, but one card that comes to mind is Docent of Perfection  Flip. There are probably better cards than this, but it's an example.

Another quite frankly hilarious card is Keening Stone. It's fantastic in mill decks. It quickly gets through the opponent's library late game. I don't think I really need to say much about it. Alternatively, (though this wouldn't work with your build, really), Leyline of the Void is fantastic and can cripple some decks. Plus, it partners up fantastically with Helm of Obedience.

If you don't decide to run Leyline of the Void, Diluvian Primordial can also be really good. Use their removal and tutors, and a 5/5 flier isn't a bad body.

If you want to use any Planeswalkers, Liliana Vess, Jace Beleren and Jace, Memory Adept (and maybe Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, but it's really just his emblem...) would work well. Lili fits in pretty much any Black deck, worst case scenario she's a Vampiric Tutor for five mana without costing you life.

Other than that... Altar of the Brood is better for token decks than anything, more kill spells would probably be helpful to you and you don't run much draw at all, really. Throw in a Blue Sun's Zenith instead of Whispering Madness, if nothing else. Although running both can be pretty good, thinking about it, you draw a bunch of cards and have everyone cycle through that many cards. Might be a nice strategy.

Also, you might want to replace Dimir Guildgate with Reliquary Tower and Fellwar Stone with Thought Vessel. Having no maximum hand size is really convenient.

If anything else comes to mind while I'm working on decks today, I'll let you know. I have my own mill deck on here (at least, I think it's still here...), if you want to have a look, though since the commander is different it might not be so useful to you.

Hello all! this is my update on what's available plus PRICE DROP!!.

I will update this daily with what is and isnt available. Again, I will take cash or trades for the second list of cards

Iron_Cube on Stop Hitting Yourself! (Silumgar Primer)

Personally I like Liliana of the Dark Realms. She gives me ramp, shuffle effect and sometimes removal if needed. Liliana Vess is also a great tutor. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is another powerful one that allow top deck manipulation and card selection. I'm also playing Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. I still want to say that Clever Impersonator is worth it. Copying things like Propaganda or the best creature on the field is always nice. He can even copy planeswalkers. Copy Karn Liberated and exile the original :P

SimicEDHbro on Hammer Smashed Face • Saskia Dragon Surge

3 weeks ago

It's looking good. Now that I looked at the deck again two obvious changes caught my eye. Ainok Survivalist for Acidic Slime, and Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves. And if you are planning on running a pure Primal Surge based deck, then you are going to need a lot more mana ramping and card drawing. With a way to search out the surge. Birds of Paradise, Burnished Hart, Farhaven Elf, Solemn Simulacrum, Viridian Emissary, Sword of the Animist and Wood Elves are all on cheaper side of things. Although I also run some pricier options in my deck as well. I recently went and updated it. You should check it out. To search out the Surge Hoarding Dragon with a Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Portal is how I do it in mine without running black. You have the option of having tutor creatures. Liliana Vess, Rune-Scarred Demon. I hope this deck turns out well for you in the end.

sylvannos on What Plane Should be Revisited?

3 weeks ago

Mercadia, Dominaria, and Lorwyn would be my votes.

I'd like to see Lorwyn with better design this time around. I think a lot of the backlash for Lorwyn/Shadowmoor was because of how clunky the mechanics of both mini-blocks were.

Dominaria because it's MtG's home. The whole plane is basically in ruins, but I'd love to see a block centered around the post-apocalypse. It would be awesome for the Gatewatch era planeswalkers go through what remains of the Tolarian Academy or visit the various locations (Jamuraa, Urborg, and so on). This is also Liliana Vess' home plane, if I remember right.

Mercadia because intelligent, bureaucratic goblins.
