Liliana Vess Discussion

Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for tons of mana. Liliana Vess mainly for tutor ability and Liliana of the Dark Realms for lands drops and ramp. +1 I love tribal/themed decks.

Edit: for zombie synergy Liliana, the Last Hope

Exaggeration, cpu_10

Here are some upgrades that could be made,

Unbudgetizing the manabase, playing cards like Godless Shrine to help increase consistency in mana.

Karlov of the Ghost Council over Ajani's Pridemate.

Rhox Faithmender and/or Alhammarret's Archive should have a place somewhere, likely over Blood Tithe and/or Debt to the Deathless.

Athreos, God of Passage, likely over Souls of the Faultless.

Serra Ascendant can easily find a place in this build.

Other options that I don't know what to replace with are Ravos, Soultender, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Noxious Gearhulk, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Debtors' Knell, Sorin Markov, and Liliana Vess.

Idyllic Tutor can find Doubling Season, same with Enlightened Tutor but also hits Chain Veil. Snapcaster Mage is good to reuse tutors or removal. Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage have solid emblems. I'd dump Freyalise, Garruk Wildspeaker and Ashiok as they don't really synergize. Fountain Watch protects Doubling Season and Chain Veil. The only Jace you really need is Unraveler, the goal should be to accumulate emblems. Liliana Vess is good for tutoring also.

Nice build, just needs a little refining. +1

Sorry to say that Liliana Vess is probably too slow. Inquisition of Kozilek has just been re-printed so it's price should drop. Necrogen Mists and Cunning Lethemancer can work as replacements for Liliana of the Veil as they don't target the player they work round Leyline of Sanctity which is the last thing rack or burn want to play against.

How often can you reliably trigger delirium for Whispers of Emrakul? One random card for is worse value than running Black Cat or later in the game Blackmail.

I'm referring to Liliana Vess. Shes pretty budget (~$7 USD) and can have a game winning ult. Personally, Endless Ranks of the Dead is my favorite zombie card. Glad Soulquake works for you

Have you thought of Liliana Vess? Her -2 seems pretty good for draw/go. She has a pretty high CMC for Modern, but that doesn't seem to hard for a deck running AEtherling.

Hello, Teddyjunior11

I'm from France, so the price of some cards in French are extremely low compare to their English counterparts.

I'd say it's not a Budget list due to Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker costing 9 Euros, and others Planeswalkers costing 4/5 Euros Each. Please note that a non-foil Ral Zarek costs approx' 5-6 Euros. Also note that a non-foil Liliana Vess costs less than 4 Euros.

On the other hand, Cruel Ultimatum is surprisingly cheap: less than 1 Euros. Same goes for Crater's Claws ( Less than 1 Euros ) Crux of Fate ( Less than 1 ) Izzet Charm ( 1 Euros ) and Electrolyze ( I got my playset for 6 Euros 50 Cts).

For the FULL deck ( Including Lands and Non-Foil cards ) you can get away with approx' 50-70 Euros.

Hope I answered your question Teddyjunior11 and thanks for your interest !

Where you are at right now is definitely not a control deck. Call this Midrange.

Aggro, combo, control, and midrange are your basic archetypes.

Aggro = Main win condition is creatures built usually on a curve. For example Burning-Tree Emissary+Scavenging Ooze on Turn 2. <- is an aggressive play (agro=aggressive? maybe).

Combo = Main win condition is some combination of cards usually used together to end the game in a turn or two after gathering the combo. For example Felidar Guardian+Saheeli Rai = game over in one turn with infinite Felidar Guardians.

Control - Main win condition is a narrow and usually a one card finisher after the pilot ensures protection. For example, Jace, Memory Adept with Fog+Dissipate to protect him. 0 mill 10 for a few turns for the win.

Midrange = A mixture of control and aggro; where, the deck can take many forms. Some midrange decks can change gears post sideboard from a midrange deck to an almost pure control deck and vice versa to a complete aggro deck.

With the above said, here are my recommendations for you:

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is a great control finisher for mono-black. So focus your creature slots on her. She kills in 3 turns and is uber hard to kill if you run the right protection for her. For protection, may I recommend Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize? Both discard spells wreak havoc on your opponents' plans by taking the cards they need out of their hand. Also! Run either Surgical Extraction or Extirpate as maybe a 2 of in your sideboard for various pesky decks. Also, Phyrexian Crusader. Pro-red and pro-white is bonus in modern.

Liliana Vess ultimate is ok against creature decks, and her +1 is great against almost any deck; however, Liliana of the Veil is remarkably better (budget-allowing). If your budget won't allow, I would say run no planewalkers and replace with more Geth's Verdict.

BTW, the BEST black removal in modern is arguably Dismember, but Fatal Push is quickly gaining ground.

Keep plugging at it and see what works for you!
