Liliana, Waker of the Dead Discussion

benbeldner on Black and White - please help!

libraryjoy i got a lot of the suggestions that you made and I am already enjoying the new deck! I was wondering if you could also take a look at my sideboard. These are other cards that I own. Some of them are a little extreme, like Armageddon for a mana - ramp deck, but should I put any of these in my main deck? Or leave them in my sideboard depending on the opponent? Another card I am considering is Sunblast Angel . Its ability to destroy all tapped creatures could be used with Blinding Light , but I feel like that would not happen enough to make it worth it.

What are your thoughts on Planeswalkers? Some that I am considering that are on the more affordable side but still good cards are Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Liliana, Waker of the Dead , Ajani Goldmane , and Ajani, Caller of the Pride . I would consider getting two of these because they are only about $4 each. Or should would it be worth it to buy only one PlanesWalker and get Sorin Markov ?

Again, I really appreciate all the help! MTG is a lot more fun when your deck works well!

Mtg_Mega_Nerds on Languish Vs. Ritual of Soot

Hello all. I want to add Liliana, Waker of the Dead to my Grixis Superfriends deck. I have 6 boardwipes, and I think that is too much. I want to take out one to have 5 boardwipes and be able to include liliana. What should I take out, Languish and Ritual of Soot ?

Liliana, Waker of the Dead was in the first draft which focused a little more on hand disruption with Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger , and I liked her as removal. I've been trying to find a way to get Rankle, Master of Pranks in but I just didn't think I could afford to replace the early drops. I've always known I'd make this swap considering the mana-cost and effects are so similar.

So my question now is: How many early-game hits do I need? Is it perfectly reasonable to just to cast Cathartic Reunion on 2 rather than set up a board state against aggro? I haven't been able to play the deck yet, purely theory-crafting, but I feel like it could work as is. The build you two seem to be suggesting would take out a lot of the interaction which is something I'm not really used to running or building. I think more importantly, I'm worried about being able to win at all if Offspring's Revenge gets countered. Maybe I'm over-valuing early pressure or I'm exaggerating combo's frailty, but I want to explore this build a bit more first.

What do you think of the Legion Angel suite? Worth it?

Thanks again

Sorry about the historic suggestions earlier, I got a bit confused.

Anyway, more on topic, you certainly should do your best to put cards in your graveyard fast to get the most out of Offspring's Revenge . Feels really bad to have it in play and nothing to bring back. The suggestions you got from usurphling make a lot of sense and I would like to reiterate that cards like Gyruda, Doom of Depths and Rankle, Master of Pranks would be right at home here and would work both as payoffs and enablers.

Considering today's meta, I feel like it could be a good idea to run more than 60 cards for you since you'll be going through your deck quickly and there's a lot of rogues and mill deck around. You only run 3 Offspring's Revenge as it is, so you could easily add another 1, a few more big hitters, 4 Cathartic Reunion (and some lands, obviously) and I'm sure the whole thing would work better in general while not being too prone to decking out.

Btw, Liliana, Waker of the Dead is a cute addition but I don't think I would go as high as 3 copies of her. You don't focus on getting your opponent empty handed, and discarding cards without drawing any isn't that great for you either. I don't think you'll have a hand full enough to have something you actually want to discard turn after turn. Something that just mills you could work better without destroying your hand. Her Ultimate and -2 also fights over your graveyard with Offspring's Revenge .

Cheers.

Hey, KraKra21, thanks for checking out my deck!

Your suggestions are very reasonable, and the majority of my reasoning is pretty idiosyncratic! For self discard, I have to admit that I haven't much played with any of the current blue Merfolk Looter type cards in standard, and I don't have enough Lilianas or Rankle, Master of Pranks to feel really good about the black "everyone discards a card" options, at least off the top of my head. Personally, if I were going to try recurring Thassa's Oracle via Maskwood Nexus , I would probably play more self mill, by way of Tymaret Calls the Dead , and maybe back it up with Liliana, Waker of the Dead as insurance against drawing the Thassa's Oracle .

Also, I was originally playing a much bluer deck, with more shapeshifters and the U/G sagas. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is just one of my favorite cards in standard, so she weaseled her way in the list when it made more sense; now she's one of the lone blue survivors.

I think a strictly B/G version of the deck would be fun, and potentially strong. Please let me know what you develop, and comment back with a link to your deck! I'll be delighted to try it out when my collection permits!!
