Liliana Vess occurrence in decks from the last year
Liliana Vess Discussion

legendofa: Quality should always be your guide. If you were using all 10 planeswalkers on a single (non-superfriends theme) like for example if they all pumped out tokens and then buffed them, that would be fine. But here you effectively have:
Ajani Steadfast - Really slow way of making your commander a bit bigger. Plays into pillow fort, but pillow fort is not a win condition.
Garruk, Apex Predator - really expensive removal spell.
Kaya, Ghost Assassin - super slow way to draw a card.
Liliana Vess - super slow way to tutor a card.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar - Her pump ability is a neg ability. That's annoying.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - I guess his plus makes tokens and he's not stupidly costed, so that's nice. Do you care about tokens though?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - He's at least card advantage. A bit expensive but it's a card each turn (let's face it, you don't give a crap about his other abilities 99% of the time) so this is probably a good keep.
Tezzeret the Seeker - A decent equipment tutor, on hte fence about this one. You don't take a huge amount of advantage of artifact untapping, but you've got some decent equipment so eh.
Looking at the planeswalkers, that's kind of what I see here. And don't get me wrong, repeatability is great. But you have to weigh that up against mana cost and frequency of repeatability.

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Welcome to EDH. Your deck might have the problem that there isn't any discard commander in . Liliana Vess, even if planeswalkers could be commanders, wouldn't suffice here, as she is only . Here's a list of the possible commanders:
A rule of thumb to follow is that you should try to include about ten pieces of each removal, ramp, and card draw. Orzhov Signet is a great card, as is Arcane Signet. Black has lots of great removal and card draw spells, so you won't have a problem finding something cutting. A strategy to complement your discard plan could be reanimation. This would allow you to steal opponent's creatures from their graveyards.

Have you considered Victimize or Liliana Vess? The former seems particularly good with your sacrifice effects and tokens and the latter can be a repeatable Diabolic Tutor and can even combo with the former in some instances. Crypt Ghast also seems like it would particularly good here to pay for your more expensive demons. Hope this helps.

Liliana Vess, Grim Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, and Razaketh's Rite are all good tutor cards for toolboxing! I think I'll add black to use these cards. I searched for Good G or W tutors, and the only ones are Mythos of Brokkos and some that I forgot the name of that search for only enchantments or auras or artifacts.

Boundless Realms, Vigor, Forest, Mountain, Time Walk, Mox Jet, Kargan Dragonlord, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Elves, Tamiyo, Collector of Tales, Liliana Vess, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, and Deicide are some other cards with cool art.

Baleful Strix , Liliana Vess , and Vigor have the best arts on this list, I think. The lands are pretty amazing too. But Baleful Strix probably has my #1 favorite mtg card art of all time. I'm inspired to make a favorite mtg card art deck of my own, and I hope you don't mind me using your idea. I'll also give you some credit in the description.
