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.

@Krypnyt: That's Azathoth. Wrexial, the Risen Deep is Cthulhu.

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.

There are two reasons to have this card on your deck

Definitely the sexxiest of the Lilianas

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 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-!!!

@2pcsofcandy: perhaps her marks are not glowing because she's finally found a way to get around her dark deal with the demons, or at least one of them? After all, that IS why she's in Innistrad, to hunt down, or find a weapon to kill one of the three demons ruling her. If I'm not mistaken, Griselbrand, the demon who killed Avacyn, is one of the demons Liliana had a pact with. Can anyone confirm this?

Or alternatively, her deal with Nicol Bolas is overriding the demon magic... After all, Bolas is more powerful than the three demons combined. (see novel Test of Metal for more on Liliana's deal with Bolas)

I have made a deck that already takes advantage of her. I can kick of her ultimate mulitple times in game just for the fact BW Decks are really good at control. Mirran Cruaders and Phyrexian crusaders with her are really mean which is another feature to combo with her but I really like the fact that I have my play set of her. But I still have to admit she is really expensive at the moment for most people to use so she will either pull a gideon or a Jace 2.0 and start out expensive and go down or just stay expensive.

Just earned two of these sweeties in a fat pack :3

She's good, but not $70 good. And she's certainly not $70 good this early in the block, since there really aren't that many fun things to dump in your graveyard yet.

Unless you're just using her as a $70 edict, she's a build-around-me card. Like Tezzeret, she needs support cards to take advantage of her abilities, and one reanimation spell and a 7 CMC dig spell aren't quite cutting it for me. Personally, I'll just play Tezzeret--who does have an entire block to support his abilities (and can actually kill my opponent)--and pick up my playset of Lilly after the price crashes in two months.

In regards to Steve Argyle's artwork both are amazing, but the one chosen for the card is much more subdued and the background is much simpler, the alternate one shows Liliana in a more provocative "belly dancer" type outfit, the background has a very S&M, skulls and bones feeling to it. I think both artwork have their merits, but the alternate artwork would've represented her Ultimate a lot better, having to sacrifice permanents seems really suited for Liliana's personality. 5/5

4 Sun Titans + 3 Throne of Geth + 1 Liliana of the Veil = Her ultimate ability twice in a turn.

Probably the most overpriced card in the history of this game (been playing since end of Revised). I mean she's good, but she's not $60 good.

Insane what people will pay for a card that is a 4.250 at best, going by this obtuse rating system (don't get me started on that topic)

What happened to common sense and actually being able to evaluate a card?

Oh well, let the suckers pay $60 a pop for her. I'll save my money for cards actually worth that price tag, which I have done many times over and for a lot more than $60. (i.e Black Lotus, Set Of Moxes, Time Walk, Ancestral Recall, Timetwister, Time Vault)

But this? Boggles my mind TOTALLY.

And before anybody tells me that I don't know beans about cards or this game, I've got a collection of over 35,000 cards and have seen and played just about all of them, along with their price tags at peak. No card ever cost this much and did relatively so little. And please don't tell me the original dual lands from the early sets. I got them for $... (see all)

Turn 1: Despise
Turn 2: Distress
Turn 3: Liliana +1, discard your Vengeful Pharaoh.
Turn 4: ???
Turn 5: Profit.

Kryptnyt, nice poem... but how can you sac a creature when you're already below 0?
