Liliana's Shade Discussion

More thoughts:

Also Bojuka Bogs for graveyard hate, Barren Moors for long game where you don't need gas.

You're in black and not playing Duress...?

I'd play Unearths instead of Gravepurge

In this kind of voltron-ish build Gaze of Pain could be good...??

The curve is really high. Take out Essence Drain - it's way to much mana for too little of an effect. Same for Liliana's Shade and Bloodhunter Bat

Typhoid Rats in the sideboard for creature based matchups

Vault Skirge ??

I completely forgot about Bone Shredder, he was removed from the initial version of shirei, when it was still more of a bog standard shirei deck. and the meta here had quite a few artifacts, will definitely pick up, but keep on stand by. In a more casual format i'd rather run Reaper from the Abyss (they're both end step triggers) once i've got an engine going, reaper is much nicer. granted i dislike reaper, since he garners much more aggression from the board, but still.

Wake the Dead is a good suggestion, it was in the deck, never really got to test it. It got swapped for Yawgmoth's Will, granted i still love wake, and will find a space for it.

love the other suggestions, although Black Market i've always found it was a "win more" kind of deal, once i have an engine where i can generate lots of counters i don't need them, but i may find a spot as the deck develops.

Also, I prefer Pilgrim's Eye over Liliana's Shade, flyer, less specific mana, does the same job cause youll never pump the shade, and if you do, shirei cant get it back. :)

and yeah, kind of why I don't run Contamination I still want to have friends.

slaughter pact for Bone Shredder has more value, ignoring echo cost to remove nonblack creature each turn with shireo without the risk of lands not untapping and losing outright.

also dread return for the Wake the Dead card that slipped through the cracks, specially with Big game hunter, your new bone shredder, its won me games against kozilek and maelstrom decks.

Nim deathmantle I though was nice too, but in global wraths, shirei has to leave play to be brought back by it, as such all the triggers that would of happened for other creatures don't happen and all you end up with is avoiding the commander tax for 4. Id run Meekstone or Jet Medallion or Lifeline instead.

id also recommend removing phyrexian reclamation and maybe even gate to phyrexia if your meta doesn't have completely dangerous artifacts. you'd get more use from cards like Black Market or Contamination which yes, its beyond degenerate in shirei. Vampiric Rites or Dark Prophecy if you notice you run out of cards, even minorly, I'm usually 5+ while extra draw triggers are happening.

you want to rune Volrath's Stronghold, but you may also want to consider Crypt of Agadeem or Lake of the Dead or which is almost necessary Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Phyrexian Tower . recently I added Strip Mine to deal with bounce lands.

Crypt Ghast and Liliana's Shade if you notice you still don't have enough mana. Hope this all helped!

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
