Definitely the sexxiest of the Lilianas

I have one! I pulled it in a draft and the only game I lost was because I didn't use her properly. She really is amazing. I'm building a deck around her, but I can't decide how to work it yet... I'm thinking mostly discard. And Madness. And graveyard shenanigans like flashback and unearth.

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-!!!

The card discarded with Liliana's +1 does not give Lotleth Troll a +1/+1 counter. The discard is forced due to the planeswalker's ability; you have no option to discard that card to pay the cost of Troll's activated ability.

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

Very good Planeswalker.

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.

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)

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

There are two reasons to have this card on your deck

I know that this can be considered a good planeswalker because it can defend itself, give card advantage, and comes out earlier than the other Liliana Vess.

I just feel a little unhappy with this one. The other lili was just so much more epic. Also, I am not a fan of her Innistrad apparel.
