Liliana, Dreadhorde General Discussion

ShodoPhan on Big daddy himself playable?

That is a good point. I don't like Liliana, Dreadhorde General because her removal is contraproductive in strategy that's midrange main wincondition and that is beating down in fair way. In general play big Tarmogoyf and protect him for any cost and clock down your opponent. Card draw from killing your own creatures are cool, but you want to take out recources from oponnent on your value creatures. Ugin, the Ineffable is kinda same as big Lili but in way that you will miss card that is under token. Also his passive is meaningless, but color free is nice and removal is quite good (but 4 loyality for 6 is meh).

Garruk, Cursed Huntsman in worst case is 3 for 1 -> You play him, use minus to kill creature (1), draw a card (2) and if he dies do removal or attack that is (3).

And I'm currently testing The Great Henge + Rotting Regisaur as card draw, ramp and big stats mini combo because I'm not really keen to spend big money for Tarmogoyf and Bob.

Liliana, Dreadhorde General or Ugin, the Ineffable might be a better walker to compare Garruk, Cursed Huntsman to, and even then, I’m not sure he compares favorably to either. They both protect themselves as well as garruk does, and both take time to really get going, but liliana gives more value and ugin isn’t color locked. Don’t get me wrong, “big daddy” is a house, but he’s one that takes a ton of time to build... but you don’t always have time to build a house like that in modern.

This is a wonderful deck, I've been browsing Krav & Regna decks for a while and I am honestly surprised at the lack of them!

Have you considered running some Planeswalkers to add to this combo like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Liliana, Dreadhorde General ? I find them to be quite fun whenever I play the power couple.

Another fun combo I enjoy is Divine Visitation and Requiem Angel as they can produce infinite angels for you. Granted it's a fair bit of mana invested but oh so satisfying when done.

Liliana, Dreadhorde General has negative synergy with Clackbridge Troll because Clackbridge Troll summons tokens for the enemy to sacrifice in case you would use Liliana, Dreadhorde General s second ability

Yeah Doom Foretold would be a fun brew, but I think it would be too inconsistent. But why would Liliana, Dreadhorde General synergize with the troll negatively? Nonetheless I'm not sure if I would consider Liliana, since I'm trying to be more budget friendly. A token strategy would be a fun deck too, with Harmonious Archon , but he works badly with Hushbringer . As it seems right now I can't find a good shell for the Clackbridge Troll + Hushbringer combo

I have to say building around Doom Foretold was a lot of fun in my opinion, and even more fun is surprising the enemy with it. Also, I don't know if you consider it a finisher, but Liliana, Dreadhorde General would fit relatively well into the deck due to the tokens you're generating. Though she has negative synergy with Clackbridge Troll .

Personally, I think you're only looking at the ceiling of the walkers and not all of what they do. You won't always be ahead. Hell, sometimes you won't even be able to stick a Walker more than a turn or someone may have such an impressive lead on resources and you need to answer it or you lose; ugin offers that utility. Not sure what your pods or play groups bring to the table but being able to nuke a harvester-animar board or getting rid of the core pieces of a Yisan deck feels fantastic and it clears the way to dump more walkers. Also, Liliana, Dreadhorde General does not out right win the game; it's a tremendous tempo swing but they still get to keep one of each permanent type and all resources will be pointed at you. You have about as much of a chance to whiff with Ral Zarek as you do with ugin. However, ugin is already digging you deeper than Ral Zarek . Even if you win every coin flip without the aid of anything else you're going to only be going 5 deeper. Ugin gets you 7 deep and you don't have to commit any mana to playing out permanents. Jace, Architect of Thought does a lot for 4 mana; mini fact or fiction, soft locks go wide token decks and has an almost game winning ultimate.

Side note: if you include Spark Double and Clever Impersonator you'd have the chance to double ultimate your walkers with Doubling Season out or just get off a relevant activation.
