pie chart Liliana MBC




I'm really trying to make this post rotation but I'm just going to wait til RTR.

I dropped Vault Skirge down to 2 because he's only a back-up evasive lifelinker if my nighthawks fall prey to my opponents. I added a third Phyrexian Obliterator in the empty slot.

Listening to the advice of my Tappedout.net brothers I've made some changes and I love them. Thank you for the suggestions.


If you like this set up go ahead and give it a +1.

After some more playtesting I decided to take out Vile Rebirth , Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis , and Liliana of the Dark Realms , for a 1 drop creature, Lashwrithe, and Liliana of the Veil.

Tell me what you think of the changes.

I don't like the idea of liliana of the dark realms in this set-up, as its abilities outside its middle ability don't really help you. Griselbrand would be a good 1-of if you're running 3 lilianas. Also, you have Disciple of Bolas in there, that only does you any good if you sacrifice 1 of the 6 other total creatures you have, which are supposed to win you the game.

Your right I only ability I really use is liliana's -3 for removal or damage. I don't really need her ultimate. I use the Disciple to sac my zombie tokens from Vile Rebirth . My zombie will be equipped with card:Runechanter's Pike and have already attacked. I playtested against a friends grixis control it went to late game and I was down to 1 and with that synergy I actually gained 19 life and drew 19 cards and came back for the win.

Distress over Duress in this heavy aggro meta it is just a better option

The reason I prefer Duress is because of its 1cmc, I'm running 15 cards that are able to remove threats. If my opponent chooses to overextend to try to flood the board then fine by me Mutilate will handle that. In my deck Duress > Distress because it fits a better slot and it gets rid of what I can't with creature removal just as well.

Playtested it. Love the deck. But i find that i often never use the tormented soul. Nighthawk is so much more potent (life link). Still this diffidently deserves +1. Liliana turn 3 is brutal for the opponent's trying to get board presence. Might wan't to drop 1 tormented soul for another liliana.

Ya duress is better than distress for two reasons. 1.) Its you 1cmc drop to deal with any removal for the 9 creatures you changed it to. and 2.) Your deck already deals with creatures pretty well. Though you do have 6 equipments, vault skirge is kind of weak in a meta that contains sublime archangel, lingering souls, midnight haunting, delver, restoration angel, etc, but if it works for you, then do your thing. vampire nighthawk is a house though...

Ok I've been looking for the best 1 drop for this deck. If you have a suggestion then let me know I'm willing to try and one of them.

@ cnmoore27: Btw I wouldn't swing my Vault Skirge into a trade or worse. I have the Vault Skirge to have a lifelink body for my equipments. card:Runechanter's Pike with only one instant or sorcery in the yard equipped to my Skirge would beat 3 of the 5 examples you used. With 2 instants and sorceries in the yard my Skirge would beat them all and give me life. Not to mention Vault Skirge with Lashwrithe at a minimum of +4/+4 would beat them all as well.

for what you have listed Vault Skirge is the best but i think Fume Spitter is better than Vault Skirge

Yeah Fume Spitter would be great, I'm going to try him now.
