It should cost BBB, just because she's the absolute darkness.

Very good Planeswalker.

Liliana of the Veil seems like an amazing card if for her +1 ability alone. Build a deck around that and you got card advantage coming out of your but hole, throw in some burial rights and sun titan and you start hurting things...a lot.
Splash some blue with a pinch of flashback cards and your are winning games.

I like Liliana, and although black is not my think, I'm changing my opinion fast. However there are a couple easy things that can get rid of her and her flaws.
1) other graveyard decks. If you are playing the mirror match, or you are up against splinterfright you may be in for some dissapointment...
2) Beast within seems like a fast counter to Liliana and if they are using her they are likely using control variant, which mean there is little they can do with that 3/3 beast anyway.
3) Brimstone folley covers her well early game and late game doing five damage.
4) white has the use of nevermore and other other strange ways of dealing with Liliana but no-one plays mono-white so y... (see all)

Love the card mechanically, will definitely play it, but not sold on the artwork. Her pose is so weird and the tilted perspective seems pretty unnecessary. Also it's really easy to miss the veil here since it's being covered up by that fire in her hand. Why not have her wear the veil when the card's name features it? And why aren't her marks glowing? I thought they were supposed to glow when she casts spells. Presumably the fire in her hands come from a spell.

When I pulled Mikaeus, the Lunarch during the Prerelease I was actually disappointed. Not because Mike's a bad card, but because I really, really want this card instead.

Fortunately I pulled two Snapcaster Mages there, too, so I'll be selling those for obscene amounts of money and probably buying a Fat Pack. And then praying to whatever demons Liliana signed with that I pull her.

Ugh! I want this to go down in price so I can get a few.. $30 bucks to drop on 1 copy of a card is not reasonable for something I'll only play in casual.

Behold the new queen of Magic, and not just Standard, mind you. The new Liliana is appearing on everything, from the title screen for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 (in which she has a killer deck) to the boxes included with Innistrad Fat Packs and even on the front page for magicthegathering.com. Liliana Vess has literally taken over all things Magic. Truly, the new dominant force in the Multiverse, at least until Bolas decides to get off his ancient ass.

EDIT: Oh shit! Bolas IS getting off his ass! For the 2013 Core Set! FFFFFUUUUUUUUUU-!!!

@OmegaSerris

I Pulled 2 in four boosters. That's less money spent for 2 Lilianas and 28 other cards then for one Lilliana. How lucky am I?

I've had a mono black deck since '99. When Innistrad and Dark Ascension came out, I found the single best turn 1 target with Dark Ritual ever made. The bane of any combo deck is simple countermagic, and man, if they don't Force of Will her or Mental Misstep the ritual, its pretty much done. That's not even factoring in her -2, which perfectly deals with any threats they might still have remaining. Still , the ultimate is my favorite ability in the game of magic, hands down, bar none. You can separate the field exactly the way you need, dealing with a single problem, or separating all creatures and lands, or artifacts and enchantments, it doesn't matter, one pile has to be sacked, and that's why Lili 2.0 is the greatest black planeswalker, her older self and Sorin can even drop with a stupid Counterspell but Lilian of the Veil?

She wins games, period 5/5

UB Proliferate, you Planeswalker. T1 draw spell, t2 option, t3 drop her make them sac a guy. T4 Gambit, make them sac a guy, or discard. And go from there.

Where I live, my opponents fear her. I put together a Standard "Sunburst" deck using Gideon, Jace, Chandra, 2 Relentless, and Liliana . . . they would opt to remove her first before the others. To be able to use her ultimate is such a rush to see your opponent just sit there and watch as I divide what they got. It's better to activate it as soon as possible, believe me.

Opened it in my second Innistrad booster. First Mythic I ever opened. I knew she was good, but definetly not worth her hideously high price at the time, so I immediately sold her for a big bunch of boosters. I don't regret it at all - first because her price now has halved and I got Army of the Damned, Past in Flames, Mayor of Avabruck, Heartless Summoning and a foil Splinterfright, and second because of my Vorthos reasoning: it's what Liliana herself would have wanted me to do in that situation. I got a nice deal for myself and she probably got paired with a player who had the resources necessary to build a kick-ass deck with her.

I like to play this Liliana with Genesis. You discard Genesis into grave yard and then return any other creatures into your hand. You can do a combo with many creatures that have ability when come into play such as Solemn Simulacrum or eternal witness to help reviving all the strong creatures in your graveyard to your hand.

Pulled her out of 1 of 2 packs on Christmas day! Though sadly she is now only $35.

I remember a few months ago when she was $80 and someone at my LGS traded a Force of Will for her! He was playing Standard U/B control with 3 of her and 4 Snapcaster mages. It made my heart warm when my Standard, Pauper, Infect deck beat him 2-1. With my most expensive cards being 4 Glistener Elves (which were $1 at the time), the cumulative value of my deck couldn't have been over $10.
