Liliana's Reaver Discussion

Also, Liliana of the Veil would be great with Nath, and if you can't stomach the price tag Liliana Vess and Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip will work just fine. Other good discard synergy would be Liliana's Caress, Cunning Lethemancer, Liliana's Reaver and Syphon Mind.

Maybeboard Brief Analysis Show
Inkfathom Witch: Fear; a great combat trick if i have a lot of my low power creatures out. To put into perpective if I have 3 creatures and the witch, its a 4 turn clock.
True-Name Nemesis: Protection from a named player; with bounce effects, this card can be a great beater. Dont know what I would take out for it though.
Skullsnatcher: Ninja with graveyard hate, something Im actually missing in this deck.
Liliana's Reaver causes discard and produces tokens, but i feel it doesnt fit in this deck.
Banshee of the Dread Choir has myriad and causes discarding, but once again, i feel its better in other decks.
Broodbirth Viper, however, is pretty good in my opinion. With myriad, it can draw me tons of cards per attack. The tokens also provide ninjutsu fodder if i want it. Dont know what i should replace for it though.
Phage the Untouchable is a game winner, bjt this may be too cruel in this deck. Maybe Ill use it as a sideboard card for more competitive matches.
Big Game Hunter, Nekrataal, Bone Shredder, and Shriekmaw all are very good ETB removal effects. Of these, I would add in Bone Shredder and Shriekmaw for their innate evasion. Though BGH can be cutch against Blightsteel and the like.
Duplicant should be an auto-include, but i never got around to getting him. What should i replace for him?
Sire of Stagnation can also draw me a crazy amount of cards if i can get it out early.
Scuttlemutt: Fantastic with intimidate and Vela.
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage: Value city
Liliana of the Dark Realms: Insane ramp, so much that i feel it needs to be in this deck xD.
Blade of Selves: insane with all of the ETB and Attacking effects in the deck.
Conjurer's Closet gives more value to ETB effects, and Erratic Portal allows for another Crystal Shard. Cloudstone Curio is a one-sided Equilibrium. Is the three I have enough, or should add more of these effects?
I think I need some pillow fort effects in the deck because of all the attacking the deck wants to do. Propaganda, Crawlspace, Dissipation Field, and No Mercy are all great candidates. How many should I run?
Dire Undercurrents: Just pure value. Need to find a spot.
Increasing Devotion or other tutors: Is it imperative I run more?
Sorry about the length xD
Of these, the most important are the pillow fort cards, Dire Undercurrents, Nether Traitor, Blade of Selves and Broodbirth Viper, Archetype of Imagination, Lord of the Void, Scuttlemutt, and Inkfathom Witch

Man, this deck is really hateful ;) Smallpox lol
I really like the build you have here;
Its got an excellent mana-ramp package. One thing I would suggest towards that would be the rituals, but they really don't seem necessary with all your mana doublers. I like the fact that you covered your ass against Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and other token hate with Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, and
Other than that, I really love the deck. I think it really captures the essence of mono-black. Good job!

There are cards that contribute to a discard plan and the zombie plan, stuff like Liliana's Reaver and Sibsig Icebreakers. They're Bolt fodder but they are threats that curve nicely into each other. With zombie lords they play quite nicely together. Stuff like Cemetery Reaper might be relevant.

I was aware of that, but thanks for telling me. Because of this, I can't combo the longbow with Liliana's Reaver's or Nightveil Specter's abilities, but it still works for Deathtouch and Sengir Vampire. Again though, thanks for telling me.

Not necessarily. A swarm of low cmc death touchers is okay... s long as you have a way for them to actually swing for noticeable amounts of damage. Something like Overwhelming Stampede would do the trick. However, as a general rule of thumb, yes. You do have too many low drop creatures that do not have enough impact scaling into the late game. Deathtouch creatures generally don't have impressive power/toughness to finish out the game or survive even the simplest removal. Especially ones that come in at 1, 2, or even 3 mana.
Some creatures that are decent that still fit the theme that you're looking for are: Glissa, the Traitor, Ambush Viper, Reaper of the Wilds, Hornet Queen, Heir of the Wilds, Vampire Nighthawk, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Liliana's Reaver, Grave Titan, Deathmist Raptor, and Deathcap Cultivator. Not all of them are amazing. But they are better than many of the cards you do have.

I think you should most definitely replace Liliana's Reaver and I have two suggestions for doing so. You could simply replace it with Geralf's Messenger, or you could make this deck a pseudo vampire tribal deck by replacing Dauthi Slayer with Shadow Alley Denizen, and Liliana's Reaver with Vampire Nocturnus, which would give your deck more synergy.
Since you're placing against heavy control, Dash Hopes may help you out as counter control. Typically it's not great in competitive modern, but if you're just playing casually it might do u some good.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have anymore questions and I'd be happy to help!
