Big respect to a fellow Ayara, First of Locthwain player, love your take on her as well. Cheers

Played 1v1 three times yesterday and honestly it feels like it's a lot of extra work to do something that Ayara, First of Locthwain does and Ayara does it better...
Going to try a mass game when I get a chance but I don't have any hope of being impressed xD

wallisface Thank you for sum advice ^^ I was planning on switching to Thoughtseize in the future. Problem with Fatal Push was that in my most games I had to remove something much larger so the Go for the Throat come handy much more. Since I'm not playing on some bigger tournaments I never had a chance to see how different would it be.
About the Phyrexian Arena and Ayara, First of Locthwain I'm quite short on ideas how would i replace them. I do need decent card draw that would not kill me in next few turns so the Arena feels quite slow but beneficial even throught the mana cost. And Ayara, First of Locthwain worked super well with Bloodghast and Bitterblossom so far. I'm just judging from my recent games as I'm playing pretty much against the same decks over and over. I do lack experience with playing against the rest 99% decks :D That's even the reason I'm having Surgical Extraction in mainboard. Proved pretty useful with Kozilek / Thoughtseize

Surgical Extraction is a sideboard card at-best
your current sideboard needs a lot of work, none of the cards feel useful outside of Nihil Spellbomb (and even 4-of those feels excessive). Sideboards should have a varied range of hate-pieces for your expected matchups.
your deck feels quite low on interaction, and would probably greatly benefit from more killspells and/or hand-disruption

This depends on your preferences, obviously.
Both will be an aristocrats list, but serve very different purposes in the strategy. Ayara is your sac outlet and a prime source of damage. You'll want to cast her early and recast her often. She'll be a centerpiece of her deck.
Liliana should enter and then be immediately transformed. I'd imagine she occupies a rather weird spot on your curve. You want to cast her early so you can benefit from her the most, but then again, she's a payoff for the lategame. Even if you just ignore the ultimate, she'll need a crowded graveyard to do something useful with her -X.
Tl;dr: I think Ayara is a lot more powerful, but Lili definitely wins the flavour contest.

Interesting brew. I've been playing -1/-1 counters for a long time now (deck here), so with that in mind, some thoughts:
I think you want as many cards as possible either applying -1/-1 counters, or profiting from -1/-1 counters. In that vein, I'm not convinced Ayara, First of Locthwain is worth it at all here.
19 lands feels waaay too low, even with your various mana-ramp dorks. I'd think you'd need at least 22-23 lands.
You have too many cards being run as 1-ofs and 2-ofs - try playing more things as playsets to get your deck feeling a bit more consistent.

I am thinking of replacing Ayara, First of Locthwain by either Tymaret, Chosen from Death or Dread Shade I have a feeling Ayara doesn't work as well in this deck except for her CMC. What do you think?
