Liliana, the Last Hope Discussion

Hugomarink on Rakdos Discard Control (Pioneer)

I like the list! I am building a similar deck and was looking for ideas, which is how I found this. I added Chandra, Acolyte of Flame after seeing your list, but my list might be too creature heavy to fully take advantage of Chandra's recursion ability. Might be better for me to run Liliana, the Last Hope instead of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as an additional threat. Here's my list if you want to take a look:

Both Plague Engineer and Liliana, the Last Hope are worth considering as a consistent way to deal with smaller creatures.

I'd also suggest Stormbreath Dragon . He's a flyer with haste that ends the game on his own. I'd say cut Dragonlord and Liliana, the Last Hope . Liliana seems more of a sideboard card in this build.

In addition, you have a lack of recursive value. In play testing your deck, I noticed you can kind of stall out after t5, and your opponent has a wrath, you're in trouble I would suggest a strong midrange Planeswalker as a 2-3 of, or maybe multiple walkers. I wouldn't go above 3 for it though. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Liliana, the Last Hope , and Kaya, Orzhov Usurper are all powerful walkers that can really help this deck. Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit seems like more of an ago card, as does Fleecemane Lion . Instead of the lion, might I suggest Grim Flayer ? It's another powerful 3 power 2 drop, but has more of a card advantage engine built in. It also feeds your Deathrite Shaman . For more versatility, I'd go an even 2-2 split on the Abrupt Decay 's with Assassin's Trophy . Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is weirdly underrepresented an extremely powerful. Scavenging Ooze has shown it's power in modern, and would probably slide well into this deck. Courser of Kruphix is amazing. You don't have room for all of these cards, but I would definitely recommend sliding some of these in. Your deck looks sweet though!

Casual Pioneer Tournament Result 2-2

Match 1 4C Super-friends - Result 2-1 Round 1 was long and painful as he proceeded to play and ultimate 2 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria in addition to 3 Teferi, Time Raveler , 2 Narset, Parter of Veils and an Oko, Thief of Crowns . Round 2 went much better with Noxious Grasp removing the first 2 planeswalkers and finishing off the match with some hasty gearhulks. Round 3 was a wash as he was unable to fix his colours.

Match 2 Versed Izzet Phoenix - Result 2-1 Lost Game 1 to 3 instances of Treasure Cruise which just overwhelmed me with card advantage. Round 2 went much better with Leyline of the Void proving backbreaking for the cheap phoenix plan. Game 3 was very close as I was lucky to have to correct removal for the threats presented. E.g. Declaration in Stone and Cut / Ribbons to remove his Thing in the Ice  Flip before it was able to flip. Combustible Gearhulk was a standout hitting the opponent for 17 damage with an amazing blind flip.

Match 3 Gideon Tribal - Result 0-2 This was short and painful as I was unable to really interact with the deck apart from Cataclysmic Gearhulk forcing him to sacrifice an excess Gideon. Abrade was helpful against Heart of Kiran but without one in hand I was just dead.

Match 4 Mardu Vehicles - Result 0-2 This match-up has a very similar problem to the previous game where I was unable to interact with my opponents vehicles Heart of Kiran + Smuggler's Copter , Planeswalkers Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Liliana, the Last Hope which get around the sorcery speed of most of my removal or even his creatures with Hazoret the Fervent being indestructible.

I may need to switch up my removal package with more versatile spells such as Dreadbore to deal with planeswalkers or Bedevil to deal with artifacts as well.

Your land count needs to be increased to at least 24 to support your mana curve. I would cut the evolving wilds for Prismatic Vista . Mutilate could be delegated to the sideboard to make way for your lands. Maybe change up your swamps into snow-basics and include Dead of Winter instead. Not a big fan of whip of erebos. I think Liliana of the Veil / Liliana, the Last Hope works great in your deck. Since you're running Geralf's Messenger, I think Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a good fit as a draw engine.

Thanks, kloac!

I had Tournament Grounds in here originally, until I realized Unclaimed Territory is strictly better given the list has no equipment (let alone colored). Territory makes running sideboard Knight of Autumn easier.

I don’t own this list. Haven’t played it. As with most of what I post, this is just built in theory. Looking at the field, I would suspect Knights to perform alright but some of the bigger players that concern me would be Urza Thopters. Recurring Engineered Explosives with Emry could get annoying. Death’s Shadow can pack quite a bit of removal. BUG control lists have been propagating thanks to Oko (which annoyingly subverts Knight Exemplar ). They look to be packing even more impressive removal suites than Death’s Shadow (as the control deck should). Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Fatal Push , Drown in the Loch , Damnation , etc. A wide cast of decent planeswalkers to choose from that could be a worry from Liliana, the Last Hope , Jace, the Mind Sculptor , and now Oko, Thief of Crowns to disable those Knight Exemplar s, enabling all their removal. BUG control looks to be even more of a headache than UW.

Sideboard slots can always be tweaked but I’m fairly confident in the main deck, outside of the manabase. That still needs touching up. But I believe it can compete.

I'd hold on to them. Okos are seeing play in almost every format, so even if they eat a standard ban I think they'll still hold around the $20-$25 mark like Liliana, the Last Hope did after rotation.
