Liliana, the Last Hope
+1: Up to one target creature gets -2/-1 until your next turn.
−2: Put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard, then you may return a creature card from your graveyard to your hand.
−7: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your end step, create X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens, where X is two plus the number of Zombies you control."
7/13/2016 You can activate Liliana’s first ability without any targets just to add a loyalty counter to her.
7/13/2016 Liliana’s second ability doesn’t target the card to return to your hand. After putting the top two cards of your library into your graveyard, you may choose from among any creature cards there.
7/13/2016 While resolving the triggered ability of Liliana’s emblem, if you control zero Zombies, you’ll get two Zombie tokens.
She wouldn't last the four turns needed to even get her emblem...
Her first two abilities aren't great but her ultimate will quickly overwhelm an opponent. Exponentially growing numbers of zombies is very scary to deal with. It isn't just two zombies, maybe to start but the will multiply quicker then bunnies.
Edit: Wait, never mind. I totally misread her ultimate. I didn't realize it was an emblem that actives every turn. I thought it was just a one time kinda deal. It's still not amazing but its way better then I thought.
shes just so terrible. I was really hoping she'd be playable, but that hope went straight out the window.
at least she will be cheap for the only people who will play her, commander players
her -2 is good in sidisi, brood tyrant
I wanted LOTV!
Her +1 giving -2/-1 is stupid, doesn't kill even half of the creatures in standard which happen to be 2/3, Sylvan Advocate, Reflector Mage, heck it doesn't even kill Tireless Tracker. This ability should've been a -2/-2 at least!
Her -2 is underwhelming AF since she only comes in with 3 loyalty, this would probably mean she will die immediately. Also it only mills 2 cards? Are you freaking serious? Even Corpse Churn mills 3 at Instant speed. This should've been a mill 4, being sorcery speed and costing loyalty counters.
Her -7 ult is the only good thing about her. Which still will never happen given the fact that she comes in with 3 loyalty and they just printed a 2 mana burn spell for 3 that hits both creature and players.
Wizards of the Coast you ruined Liliana, yet you printed Tamiyo, the Field Researcher in Green and White... Which were already overpowered! Thanks for nothing! How about you print good cards in other colors like Red, Blue and Black?
I like the -2 ability combined with the 3 loyalty. It makes you consider the consequences of being greedy. You have to make a decision when you drop her. Do you play it safe and stabilize the board or do you go for the card advantage and hope she lives?
