Whenever Liliana's Reaver deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card and you put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield tapped.

I came here from your forum post:
It doesn't look bad, If your running any mono color right now, you need Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx hands down. Absolute must add. Bloodsoaked Champion is the new awesome 1 drop black, so good add there. Master of the Feast is a good 3 drop, as long as you can win before the draw gets out out of control. You could consider Fate Unraveler to hinder that draw and turn it into a win con. Gray Merchant of Asphodel was a standard juggernaut for a long time in mono black, and still should be. Paragon of Open Graves might be of interest to you, especially to make the Champion even better late game. Stab Wound is really more of a casual thing, especially with Banishing Light flying around. and Leeching Sliver has no place here. Drown in Sorrow was big along with Bile Blight for a long time, and can be your sudo-board wipe in a pinch. Murderous Cut is a thing, along with Hero's Downfall and even good old Doom Blade be it main or sideboard. Both Liliana of the Dark Realms and Liliana Vess are standard legal and each can deserve a spot. There is always Despise and Duress and again standard legal Thoughtseize if your looking to get into that bag of worms. Erebos, God of the Dead finds a home in mono black as well, and completely kills any lifegain that might hamper your aggro attempts. Liliana's Reaver is actually a beast, especially after the departure of Desecration Demon. If you want to help with the life loss from sign in blood, Whip of Erebos might help you gain that life back. I'm sure I could go on but this should at least get you started. Mono Black has been and still should be very very good in the current meta.
I'd focus on either mill or discard. So I'd replace Waste Not and Liliana's Reaver . If you'd like to stick with the zombie theme definitely include Wight of Precinct Six . For pure mill power I'd recommend Consuming Aberration . As for looking for more mill zombie cards I'd go on gatherer. Good luck!
I like the idea of a deathtouch deck and I think it has enough support to make it standard.
First of all, ask yourself this do you want to make it standard. If not then disregard the advice I'm going to give here.
First of all, take out all non standard cards, this includes: Acidic Slime , Ambush Viper , Deadly Recluse , Deathgaze Cockatrice , Glissa, the Traitor , Grave Titan , Liliana's Reaver , Mwonvuli Beast Tracker , Nirkana Cutthroat , Ogre Slumlord , Garruk Relentless Flip , Golgari Keyrune , Quietus Spike .
The job of this deck seems to be to fill the board with these 1/1 deathouch creatures that make trades unfair for creature decks and life hell for control decks since the creature are easibly replaceable. Here's what would suggest.
This should be a decent land base for this deck. If you want to fo higher up the budget, you can go for fetch lands.
Here are your creatures, Pharika's ability to make snakes from you dead creatures and flooding the board with them is what you want to be doing. however, Hornet Queen and the Soul as well as Hythonia are good backups/ alternate win cons.
The deathouch on the bow is irrelevant here but its versatility isn't, the dictate is just value but you can sideboard it for non creature heavy decks.
Some good removal and the cure is just for flavor :P
Sorcery (4):4x Despise
Despise is good against heavy control decks but if you are will to spend the money, you can go for Thoughtseize
Planeswalkers (1):1x Garruk, Apex Predator
One Garruk should be enough since you don't necessarily need him. (Maybe that's just me)
I don't want to take time to talk about sideboard if I'm not sure that you want to go standard. Tell me what you thing about my suggestions! I really like the idea behind this deck and I hope to see it blossom into something that can be better than what it is right now.
22 would be a good land count in my opinion
MindAblaze!I use to love the Dark Ritual Hypnotic Specter combo too. The combo I loved the best was Mindstab Thrull Dark Ritual and Hymn to Tourach , second turn if they didn't have a creature out (usually they didn't) they would lose 5 cards off the back. Played that against my friend when he had to redraw 3 times and only had 5 cards in his hand.
How do you think the mana is in the deck? Should I take somethings out to put some more low costing creatures in?
One other thing to consider RE: Liliana's Reaver
. It's a feel bad moment when your Card Advantage monster gets killed by a one mana Lightning Bolt
. But opponents tend to throw Bolts at Lili herself too, so giving them more targets could work out for you in the long run.
