Casey4321 You know me and themes, I dig this one.
Couple of includes (the *'d ones are for especially for her land trigger)
Lotus Vale - I think is a lot better than Scorched Ruins in a mono deck, but I mean if you can, include em both.
You could maybe do more stax effects like Smokestack?
Also Hall of Gemstone :P

I kind of like the idea of Rakdos control for him. You have creature removal and draw in the command zone so you could use a discard and a Stax-y package to win a long game. Bitterblossom, Bloodghast, Ophiomancer, other token producers alongside Smokestack, Smallpox, Innocent Blood, Necrogen Mists, Oppression and lots of boardwipes. Basicly just disrupt everyone and win with card advantage. That's the way I'd go anyway, I tried something similar with Mogis recently and it was pretty good but lacked good reliable sources for card draw.

Hi all, I'm working on a stax/discard/Pox list for Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and I'm curious what people think is better Zombie tribal or good stuff? They are both pretty similar builds as far as non-creature cards go here are the main differnces:
Primarily zombie tribal has the advantage of numerous Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar combos(less reliable in good stuff builds), Patriarch's Bidding and Endless Ranks of the Dead(to offset Smokestack).
Just looking for any opinions, thanks!

You have an average CMC of 3ish so Trinisphere would be great. You have a Deathrite Shaman but no fetch lands? You should add a few more 1 mana dork's, such as Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves and Birds of Paradise. If you get some fetch lands Lotus Cobra is very cheap right now. If you want to slow every one down Contamination and smokestacks are pretty good in Meren. From there add a couple reanimation targets. I would get a Protean Hulk and look up some of those combos and then also get a Sheoldred, Whispering One

Some includes i think you missed and must include:
Quillspike goes infinite with Devoted Druid and is good utility none the less.
Obelisk Spider Amazing life drain and a nice bonus with a placement of a -1/-1 counter on an attacker.

first off, two things
mizzix is a combo general, not control, and "control" and "fun" arent really the same thing, if by fun control you mean YOU have fun and nobody else does, then you're talking control!
there's a million options for good control commanders, but for edh multiplayer the most common and reliable control are stax builds, where you ramp out very fast into stuff like Smokestack, Winter Orb, Torpor Orb and Sphere of Resistance which then slows everyone down immensely with you being in the lead, problem is most of the good ramp that gets you very far ahead very fast to be able to handle the effects of such cards on your own board state are pricy.
keranos because it combines the above stax with Counterspells galore and the ability to cast Jokulhaups/Obliterate/Wildfire without keranos dying, and he just draws you into more lands and counters and bolts creatures
meren because she can easily ramp early by stacking Arbor Elf type cards and then playing stax or cards like Living Plane, Grave Pact or Contamination to not let opponents do much of anything while getting a free creature to sacrifice every turn, abusing stuff like Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Eternal Witness
stax is the cornerstone of edh control, but many other commanders do it well,
the most fun but least competitive form of staxcontrol is chaos, where silly things occur and lots of dice rolls of chance, for these you want my favorite general, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, or other chaos generals like Norin the Wary
nekusar uses chaos to win in the form of mass draws via Teferi's Puzzle Box or Wheel of Fortune effects, which is like casting a bunch of global mulligans and can either win you games or feed your opponents based on what cards are drawn when you force draw
theres plenty more but those are the most common i can think of
