Liliana's Shade Discussion

Oak_Guy on Athreos God of the Orzhov

Scoured Barrens is a must include, even if you just replace Salt Flats. Also, how about Radiant Fountain or Kabira Crossroads? Your land count is kind of low, I would add Kor Cartographer and/or Liliana's Shade. Recur them early and often with Athroes, Phyrexian Reclamation, Ravos, Soultender, etc. For further land triggers I started to run Ruin Ghost, bounce those life gain lands. Don't forget to tap them before you bounce them.

If you want little dorks, Deathgreeter and Soul Warden are in my Karlov of the Ghost Council deck.

How about Karlov himself, or Treasury Thrull ? I have gotten huge value from both.

If you average game is 3+ opponents, Shattered Angel is great value.

And get Thought Vessel or Library of Leng and ditch Spellbook, very little value from that card.

You might consider Salvaging Station for some sick combo action with Wayfarer's Bauble, and may want to add Expedition Map too just to get more swamps and use the station. Why not Liliana of the Dark Realms too since she does the mana thing and maybe even Liliana's Shade. Since you have lots of ways to get lands into your hand I would consider Walking Atlas and Terrain Generator to dump them out. Love Korlash decks and any general that people don't think can be a commander. +1 again buddy.

Great deck! but why Polluted Mire and not Barren Moor? And... why Liliana's Shade? It looks like a sub-optimal way to get a land. Also, have you considered Liliana Vess? It's the walker-tutor :D

@sirpear: mack10k is correct. I'm running too many non-basic lands to run wood elves and with my build being almost 70% I find it more useful to be able to grab a Swamp. I contemplated Liliana's Shade but farhaven won the spot due to a lower CMC and the swamp going to hand. I run so few basics so I still have enough to ramp with creatures but will still have great success with Hermit Druid. I appreciate your comments! Don't forget to +1 if you like the deck.

@Phaetion: Actually mono-black has a couple of ways to search for basics such as Liliana of the Dark Realms and Liliana's Shade. Not to mention it has the mana doublers Crypt Ghast and Nirkana Revenant. Plus with brago and chainer you could really abuse Solemn Simulacrum and Pilgrim's Eye.

Hi there! Fellow Shirei player here! (Let 'em Die [Primer: Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker])

I like Dutiful Attendant instead of Phyrexian Reclamation since it's creature based recursion. Necropede might be better than, perhaps, Festering Goblin. Personally, I'd pick Liliana's Shade over Solemn Simulacrum probably, since it comes back under Shirei and can be reused. Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble are both potential win conditions, though I like the Zulaport Cutthroat better. And Crypt Rats can be useful for a lot - killing off tokens, your own little creatures, or finishing off opponents when you have more life.

Dark Privilege is excellent protection for Shirei, since it doubles as a sac outlet. Westvale Abbey  Flip is just plain fun in this deck. Living Death and Killing Wave are both good boardwipes that leaves you untouched.

I like your deck. It's not too different than mine, at heart.

NecroPony on Lili's Revelation (Liliana Primer)

Atony1400 if I was going to run a shade variant in addition to Nirkana Revenant, I'd run Liliana's Shade as the etb ability actually gets me something.

As it stands Nantuko Shade is at best just a big body and of little use in this reaninator shell.
