Liliana's Reaver Discussion
4 days ago
Saw the reddit thread, but since I don't actually have a reddit account I figured I'd comment here since Liliana is one of my favorite commanders. Cards you're not running that I'd highly recommend are Soldevi Adnate, Anvil of Bogardan, & Ill-Gotten Gains.
As for cuts I would try to pick on a strategy and streamline it. I'd start with lower impact cards like Sangromancer which does nothing but gain life which you don't really care about, or Liliana's Reaver which is overall pretty mediocre. You can either go the route of cutting the "goodstuff" cards like Phyrexian Obliterator or Sorin Markov, or you can cut down on either the discard, reanimation, or zombie themes. I personally play Liliana with a focus on the discard aspect, a secondary focus on Reanimation, & 0 focus on zombies.

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.
Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.
Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.
Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.
Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.
Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

As for the cards you already play, I would have some candidates for a cut. Rooftop Storm is pretty weak card, especially since you play under 20 zombies. Not worth 7 mana to play 3-4 cmc zombie for free. Paradox Haze seems nice but usually you dont have that much Zombies in play for it to matter (and if you do your opponents are doing something wrong :-)) Endless Ranks of Dead seems also sweet but for it to be relevant you would really have to overextend which usually results in boardwipe.
With such low zombie count I really don't think Gisa and Geralf are that great in the deck, I would rather play Havengul Lich which can cast any creature from ANY graveyard and its also a zombie. Honestly I cut all 4-mana lords, leaving ony 3-mana ones. But it really depends how deep you want to invest into the tribal theme. Right now I am experimenting with Liliana's Reaver and Evil Twin in that slot.

So besides your commander you have only 5 cards that have blue in them. I would go mono black if you are not utilizing that color more with card draw, counter spells, control.
Dread Slaver is good in limited but not edh, it won't stay around long for it to take a bunch of stuff and also people wont mind taking the 3 to keep their dorks. you can replace it with a better beater/ blocker i suggest Scourge of Nel Toth
take out Disentomb and replace it with Reanimate to cut out the middleman, your hand. same goes for Raise Dead i would put in Animate Dead because it puts it on the field and can take from any yard. i would also cut Gravepurge and slot in Zombie Apocalypse yeah it is double the mana but you dont clutter your top deck and get all your guys out instead of slowly over the course of a few turns. remove Macabre Waltz for Dance of the Dead for the same reasons as Disentomb. another mass reanimate spell is Living Death my opinion would to remove Urza's Incubator for it.
to get into more blue take out Sanguimancy and add in Frantic Search for free card draw basically. also remove Underworld Connections for Rhystic Study. Life's Finale can be replaced with Cyclonic Rift. You already have Lord of the Accursed so Graf Harvest can come out for Lim-Dul's Vault to set up what you need. i would take out Liliana's Indignation for Traumatize indulgence is such abad mana sink you should add Dark Salvation as a mana sink and remove From Under the Floorboards. adding Traumatize works well with cards like Undead Alchemist so to slot him in remove Liliana's Reaver in addition to buff this little synergy remove Darkest Hour for Altar of the Brood to make tokens all night.
Haunted Fengraf is slow because you sac lands and you dont even get to choose you target i would replace it with Unholy Grotto. take out Leechridden Swamp for a swamp there are better ways to get to your opponents life with your mana. graveyard decks do not need Reliquary Tower.
i see you arent running the grimgrin-gravecrawler-diregraf captain combo, i would take out Jet Medallion for Phyrexian Altar to be able to kill the table. also for replacements for the captain remove Adaptive Automaton and Prized Amalgam (its slow) for Vengeful Dead and Plague Belcher
i would also try to find more slots for a for like 4 counter spells
you can check out my list for other combos http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/rise-of-the-dark-realms-4/

Cryptbreaker - Great for dumping creatures into the graveyard, making tokens, and drawing you cards.
Death Baron - Not a budget option, but highly effective.
Empty the Pits - I have a bunch of these from my Khans redemption.
Ghoulcaller Gisa - A great way to get creatures in to the bin and make a significant amount of token zombies.
Ghoulcaller's Chant - An interesting option as you can recur two zombies for one black mana.
Grave Betrayal - Similar to your commander's abilities as it steals dead creatures and makes them zombies under your control.
Graveborn Muse - Card draw FTW!!!
Gravespawn Sovereign - A spendy activated ability for an powerhouse ability.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - Not all creatures need to fit the tribal theme as your commander makes them Zombies.
Liliana's Reaver - Token generation, discard effect, decent rate. Viable option.
Necromantic Selection A board wipe with a recursion ability.
Noosegraf Mob This card makes a ridiculous amount of zombies!
Quest for the Gravelord - An interesting, cheap, enchantment with repeatable value.
Risen Executioner - Odd Zombie Lord.
Rooftop Storm - A must in any Zombie deck.
Metallic Mimic - Lord
Vizier of Many Faces - Clones!
AND OF COURSEZombie Fanboy

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.
