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.

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.
