Liliana, Heretical Healer

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric


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

Liliana, Heretical Healer Discussion

OLucas on Winota Aristocrats Non-Budget

Leo_LordOfThePit thank you for commenting.

I agree that Seasoned Pyromancer is too good to pass up without a budget restriction. The reason it's not here is because this is mostly a manabase upgrade from a budget deck I've been brewing. I'll eventually get around to making a true non-budget version.

A better version of this deck would probably feature Seasoned Pyromancer , Liliana of the Veil , Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Bloodghast making the +2 from Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip much better. The problem I foresee is the number of humans dwindling too much making Winota, Joiner of Forces worse. Depending on the creature package Xathrid Necromancer should also be switched out for Teysa, Orzhov Scion .

The reason for the Tocatli Honor Guard is because exiling effects are very effective against this deck and a lot of these effects are creature etb based so they should really be in the 75. They are in the mainboard as a metagame call, maybe a wrong call, but if those effects aren't prominent deffinetly switch them with Rip Apart and Vanishing Verse .

I would love to see your version of the deck and how it fares. Best of luck.

I think that Liliana, as her family were healers as was she before Josu's death, would've been before her depiction on Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, after her brother died.

Liliana of the Forward Order

Legendary Creature - Human Cleric

, : Prevent all damage a source of your choice would deal this turn.

, : Regenerate target creature. You gain control of that creature if it regenerates this way.


I'd like to see another planeswalker pre-spark, preferably well before their spark ignited.

Just adding a thought - the theme here from some of the cards you mentioned is sacrifice. So I would think this could be a deck where the likes of Mayhem Devil could strive.

As a rough concept, something like:

Lowly_Hollow on Can Eternal Witness return Liliana, …

Can Eternal Witness return Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip to hand after Liliana returns Eternal Witness with her -X? Being that her -3 would put her in the graveyard, I'm assuming she would be a legal target for Witness.

It also has a circle in the type line like Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip. It shouldn't have that if there is a mana cost on the card right?

Update: Many a moon have past since i've made any tunings to the deck.

here is the minuscule change since last we talked:

       Basalt Monolith
       Liliana, Heretical Healer

Why: Basalt Monolith while goes infinite with Rings of Brighthearth , I already have an infinite mana loop set with Lotus Petal . Lili gives me better hand control and with the option of recursion. this leaves Rings on the cutting table.

       Agadeem's Awakening
     Flip Add 
       War Room

Why: War Room is card draw plain and simple, regardless of awakening "ALSO" being a land, all im really looking for is card draw.

       Fleshbag Marauder
       Phyrexian Obliterator

Why: Fleshbag although the OG is the weakest of the flesh bag effects. Obliterator is an aggressive threat that demands to be dealt with or the game practically ends, is a good finisher, probably the most punishing card I could ever imagine seeing in a Tergrid deck.

Vindictive Lich : I mean, enough said, same for Mindslicer

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip: another discarding Lily that can reanimate

Mastermind's Acquisition : I think every EDH list running black should have this card. you now have a 15 card board open to you.

I run Oppression and Painful Quandary in my Death Taxes list. If you can swing it (I am only guessing you can because of imperial seal) Chains of Mephistopheles

Killing Wave is another good sac spell, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos as well

I've decided to make more than one list but each one should be helpful to you in the future. Also, you don't need to put in all these cards. There are too many here for you to fit in the deck.

Liliana cards:

Liliana, Death's Majesty (can be a board wipe but don't count on it), Liliana, Dreadhorde General (also doubles as amazing card draw), Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Liliana, Untouched By Death (has a removal ability).

Zombie tribal cards:

Shepherd of Rot, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Relentless Dead, Field of the Dead, Undead Augur (also card advantage), Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gleaming Overseer, Call to the Grave (rude card), Endless Ranks of the Dead (my favorite zombie tribal card), Graf Harvest, Graveborn Muse (also card advantage), and Josu Vess, Lich Knight.

Never/Return is zombie themed removal.

Necromantic Selection is a zombie themed board wipe.

Ramp cards:

Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Charcoal Diamond, Sky Diamond, and Fellwar Stone.

I hope this helps!
