Liliana's Reaver Discussion

3InchMeatMonster on casual zombie deck

3 weeks ago

Ghoulcaller Gisa, Liliana's Reaver, Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler, Grave Titan and Dark Salvation are fun zombie cards. and the best zombie ever is Gray Merchant of Asphodel, for sure run at least two of him. i would lower the creature count and add in more removal like Go for the Throat and Dismember. a Languish or Mutilate or two would be good too. Sign in Blood or Phyrexian Arena for card draw. Grave Betrayal is always great. i would also recommend 2 Liliana of the Dark Realms for mana ramp.

Ashling, the Extinguisher isn't bad either in the right deck. Liliana's Reaver and Avatar of Woe are options also.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Abyssal Persecutor, Mirri the Cursed, Desecration Demon, Tasigur, the Golden Fang (still counts dammit!)

And that's about it. Sure, you can throw in some cheese like Liliana's Reaver, but you're gonna have a bad time. Nothing really comes close to the obliterator.

Some card suggestions...

Narnam Renegade, cheap and efficient.

Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, lifelink and deathtouch, these are great cards.

Liliana's Reaver, if it hits you get force a discard and a free zombie.

Reaper of the Wilds, scry is always useful on an efficient creature that can protect itself.

Acidic Slime, it kills a land, enchantment or artifact + you get a deathtouch creature.

The default discard deck is 8 Rack, named for The Rack and Shrieking Affliction, you can find Rack decks here.

Now that being said, if you want to try something a little different, thats ok. You do have one bad card choice, Assassinate isn't good. You want instant speed kill spells and you want them to cost less than what you are killing. Victim of Night or Fatal Push would be better choices. Alternatively you could use Dark Withering as you should be able to use madness, also madness gives you Call to the Netherworld.

You really want 2 copies of Lilliana Necrogen Mists can pretend to be your second copy. I'd say you want Blood Scrivener rather than Asylum Visitor for the zombie synergy. For the same reason Gifted Aetherborn would be better as Black Cat. Finally the Tree of Perdition is a cool card but Liliana's Reaver would now fit in with a zombie sub theme and it causes discard.

Couple of other cards to look at are Waste Not and Tasigur's Cruelty. Hope this helps.

Kill spells are good control if you're worried about other creatures. There are a ton of them, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, good old Murder, Ultimate Price and many more.

Hand disruption is also good Control, I play Liliana's Reaver a lot. Makes zombies and hand disruption.

If you like counterspells (I never leave the house with out some =P) then Dash Hopes is very good. One of my favorite black cards.
