Nothing fancy here you say?? Narset, Parter of Veils and Liliana Vess dancing the sambo together is quite the fancy spectacle I dare say.

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.

Grind, Thrashing Wumpus and Crypt Rats were an auto include, I had no idea that this card even existed so thank you for the idea! And I do like Liliana Vess She does bring a lot of hate but if I can get 2 searches out of her then I feel she is very well worth it and has turned games around for me, and at the worst you are right she is just a worse Diabolic Tutor. I have Oblivion Strike in because my play group likes to play eldrazi at times and it is the one spell I can hit ulamog, the ceasless hunger with. And I chose to run Baneful Omen because another player in the group likes to pillow fort with Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Archetype of Endurance and it gives me a way to deal some damage even though I can’t swing through, it also is kind of like a time bomb if played kind of early like turn 4 or 5 with Dark Ritual if it isn’t dealt with. I also cut 1 land for Bubbling Muck, that may not have been the smartest decision over taking out dark ritual but, it has been working wonderfully. I also added Imp's Mischief to the deck. Thank you again for all of your ideas!!

Hello I'm interested in this deck and was wondering is Liliana Vess only there for her tutor effect? I was thinking of just replacing her with Grim Tutor since I pulled one and have it in a binder ready to go.

If you want to really pump the power of your deck with a combo, Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond is a pretty common combo that is really good. Since you're also gaining a ton of life, you could toss in a Peer into the Abyss just for fun. And, of course, tutors do WONDERS with improving the consistency of a deck, so you should look into those. A pretty decent one that is usually pretty good is Mausoleum Secrets, but you could always run a Liliana Vess or such.

Good luck deckbuilding, and I hope you get fantastic results from your deck!

To put in any commander deck regardless of color choices: Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Bridge.

Also, a non-traditional type of tutoring like Liliana Vess and similar walkers or tap to search creatures like Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero.

You need Removal.

I would cut Mind Rot (4x Unburden seems enough), Fell Specter (To expensive), 2x Torments of Hailfire (2 is enough to finish), Liliana Vess. You have enough discard.

Therefore i would play 4x Thoughtseize and 4x Fatal Push. Then you need Mass Removal. 2x Bontu's Last Reckoning is a cheap Board clear with light burden. 2x Murderous Rider.

Then to push your Hailfire i would play 2x to 3x Cabal Stronghold. For Fatal Push to trigger i would play Fabled Passage. 2x Field of Ruin to deal with annoying Lands, like Azcanta or something else.

Then you have your full sideboard to edit. Here are some nice Black Sideboard cards and maybe a way to split those cards: 3x Ashiok, Dream Render 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet 1x Bontu's Last Reckoning 2-3x Collective Brutality 1x Infernal Reckoning 2x Murderous Rider 2x Noxious Grasp 1x ElderSpell 1x Pithing Needle
