Oath of Liliana Discussion

Transgress the Mind is better than Lay Bare the Heart, specifically because it can get Aetherworks Marvel. You might want to put Dispossess in your sideboard as well. Yahenni's Expertise is also good for weenie board wipes. Murder or Ruinous Path over Final Reward. Ob Nixilis Reignited would also be good here. Fatal Push over Dead Weight. You would get more value out of Oath of Liliana than Trial of Ambition if you put in Ob. Also Grasp of Darkness needs to be in here as well. I would even consider putting in Harsh Scrutiny

Hi dracoarmy,

Thanks very much for the feedback, I've since modified the deck a little bit to include more zombies so I wanna keep the mini tribal theme in there for now.

Whilst this isn't "budget" as such I'm trying to avoid any overly oppressive cards, I have a pretty casual playgroup and cards like Phyrexian Obliterator are a bit too extreme (it's also why Oath of Liliana is in here over Vile Requiem, I've tried to include as many "Liliana" cards as possible).

May have to look into Vengeful Dead, Cemetery Reaper and Scourge of Nel Toth as they both seem very much on theme with what I want to be doing, originally had Whip of Erebos in and might add it back just to give the deck a little more sustain.

Have taken out Shimmering Grotto and Cascading Cataracts, was gonna keep them in just in case I reanimated a creature with off-colour activated abilities, but just having the creature is usually good enough.

Thanks again for your help, I'm gonna keep tinkering away at this deck whilst I still grab a lot of the essential components (who'd have thought a mono-colour mana base would be a pain to build? :P)

Your lack of disturbs me. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Ob Nixilis Reignited are very good; being able to impact the board as soon as they drop. My issue with Nissa, Steward of Elements is that, other than playing her huge for the big beats, she does literally nothing. Another suggestion would be Oath of Liliana. This oath ends up generating SOOO many Zombie tokens from just playing your walkers and offers a nice T3 tempo play.

I would echo what mack10k said about going down some Chandra, Flamecaller, but also note that this card is just great against the Zombie decks. Combine Chandra, Flamecaller with adult nissa (Nissa, Vital Force) and you can repeatedly wrath tokens and zombies into oblivion. Maybe 2 main, 1 side. Also, I agree that Oath of Gideon seems not that great. Planeswalkers have the inevitability of winning and I cant see the extra 1 loyalty being that important. Plus the 1/1 tokens are pretty meh.

Up the removal factor (Declaration in Stone, Radiant Flames), go to 20 walkers and keep Deploy the Gatewatch cause it's so fun ;)

My other suggestions are all here: Five Color Superfriends

I actually quite like this idea, but I feel a little awkward in some of the card choices.

Hypnotic Siren and Spreading Seas feel underwhelming for me- the lack of islandwalk makes seas pretty do-nothing, and siren is only really functional once you have two anvils running, which could be a removal spell, or chumps once. The lack of g/w cuts a lot of enchantment options, but there are some really interesting tools available that should help out. Eldrazi Conscription/Arcanum Wings and Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood have been classics in these colours for a while. Tainted Remedy is interesting sideboard, Underworld Connections/Phyrexian Arena/Dark Tutelage Dictate of Kruphix are their usual selves, and Paradox Haze could make those upkeep triggers, Leyline of Anticipation is interesting, allowing flash cloudstone shenanigans. Bitterblossom Provides board presence while being resistant to creature-removal, Necrogen Mists, Dictate of Erebos, No Rest for the Wicked Seal of Doom/Trial of Ambition/Oath of Liliana, Necrotic Plague, Endless Whispers Waste Not or Descent into Madness all speak to possible strategies.

One card that you absolutely must run is Whip of Erebos as a two-of. The lifelink keeps you in the game, and the graveyard recursion keeps constellation triggering. Gonti's Machinations is worthwhile against burn. Mimic Vat is good with mage.

I've been trying to get Blood Funnel working in these lists, but it just doesn't- the costs inflicted are too high, with boardwipes ending your game. Don't bother.

I can't think of anything else that isn't just the usual format staples and sideboards- good luck making it work.

+1 love this deck. I play a similar build. I find if an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger sticks I just die. I have Oath of Liliana and To the Slaughter to combat the Marvel/Eldrazi problem. I found Glorybringer is just better than the Goblin Dark-Dwellers. It comes with its own removal spell and attacks 1st turn it comes down/reanimates. It also allows me to play Tormenting Voice/Collective Brutality over Succumb to Temptation. Having a bin full of creatures is key when big lili comes to play.

Sweet deck, I have been running a similar list with more discard and more of a reanimation theme. I really like your removal sweet though. I think the sac choices (To the Slaughter, and Oath of Liliana) are so important to fight an Aetherworks Marveled Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or gods running around. Your deck looks slightly weak to control in Game 1, maybe some hand disruption could help that matchup. I main deck Collective Brutality to get its versatile abilities, and boost graveyard synergies.

With only 7 zombies in the deck and very few ways to make them, I would remove Undead Warchief, Soulless One, Lord of the Accursed, Gravecrawler only 7 zombies hard to bring back, Oath of Liliana,Relentless Dead (maby)

Id add Vile Requiem in place of Oath of Liliana. Its a good removal.

Or you can just add more zombies. to make the cards worth it.

Maby add Zombie Master, Unbreathing Horde if one thing in play gives it +0 +1, it can never die from combat. Risen Executioner, Cemetery Reaper, Butcher Ghoul

Out of curiosity, why is Oath of Liliana and Yahenni's Expertise doing in your sideboard? The expertise would probably hurt your board more then theirs a lot more often, and you don't have a whole bunch of planeswalkers. :P
