Liliana, Heretical Healer

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric


Whenever another nontoken creature you control dies, exile Liliana, Heretical Healer, then return her to the battlefield transformed under her owner's control. If you do, put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

I think Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip combos with Saffi Eriksdotter and Loyal Retainers . Saffi sacs herself targeting Liliana, Liliana flips, loyal Retainers sacs for saffi, Liliana targets Retainers with her third ability killing herself... I'm not exactly sure how it works, it might be a little different, but it's tight enough to fit into a Protean Hulk package I'm sure.

Only a double-faced card can actually transform. For your example with Elusive Tormentor  Flip, this just means nothing happens and Lazav, the Multifarious is still a copy of the Tormentor. However, for your example with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip there's a special rule that says Lazav will go to exile and stay there.

711.8a If a player is instructed to put a card that isn’t a double-faced card onto the battlefield transformed, that card stays in its current zone.

If Lazav, the Multifarious clones Elusive Tormentor  Flip, and then activates the transformation condition, does the transformation happen? Would Lazav then have the abilities of Insidious Mist ?

Conversely, what if I were to copy either jace, vryn prodigy or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip? Is it now a planeswalker?

shaftdiggity Those are all great suggestions, thanks! I do have Black Market but not sure what to swap for it just yet. I also remember looking into Bloodchief Ascension and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip before, but haven’t found them for a reasonable price just yet. Dark Tutelage has potential too, and shouldn’t be too hard to grab, though I’d also need to decide what to cut for it.

Nice deck. I'm a big fan of Athreos. Couple suggestions:

Consider swapping Nev's disk for Magus of the Disk as he could be returned to your hand with Athreos.

Black Market is great for ramp, Bloodchief Ascension is everything you're trying to do, and Dark Tutelage is great for card draw

I highly recommend cheap creatures with extort

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip would be a good add as it reverts to a creature on death and gets the Athreos boon.

So two cards I think you should put in right away are Geth's Grimoire and Words of Waste . Paired, they're busted -- but individually they're good, too.

Smallpox and Pox are some pretty brutal spells to resolve. I've always been partial to Smallpox , simply because it's easier to build around, but Pox proper can be pretty good too.

Liliana of the Veil is amazing, though unfortunately she is a lot of money. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is a more affordable alternative -- and if you can flip her fast and consistently, she's arguably just as good. Liliana Vess is also good, but I think she's significantly worse than the aforementioned. If you run some Lilies, Liliana's Triumph becomes even more powerful.

Considering how much of your creatures are under three power, you might want to consider Meekstone if your meta is into the whole attacking thing.

Raven's Crime interacts pretty well with Null Profusion .

Night of Souls' Betrayal seems like it'd be super dorky in this deck. Your x/1s (like Dusk Legion Zealot ) would die and come back every turn so long as your general is down, so you'd get their triggers on every end step. This will require a lot of build-around, but keep it in mind because it's kinda super powerful.

Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists are good permanent-based sources of discard. Oppression is also pretty dumb.

Liliana, Defiant Necromancer

The final ability states: You get an emblem with "Whenever a creature is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return it to the battlefield under your control at the beginning of the next end step."

Does this work with token creatures? (In this case about a dozen 2/2 zombies.) I believe it should since it doesn't specify nontoken creature like the front of the card does, but it came up in an argument during a game yesterday.

Front of the card for reference: Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip

Thanks for any feedback!
