Modern Girl: Mono-Black Discard a.k.a. Liliana's Rack

This dark little gem is still in testing, but if you like to watch your opponents' faces twist as you subject them to crucibles of decision-making agony, it's probably the deck for you. Comment or Tweet me @moxymtg, I would love to chat about it with like-minded black mages. The mister gets credit for the card choice here - it was my idea, and I made executive cuts - but he came up with the list. Good team, gung ho!

20 Swamp
1 Bojuka Bog
1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

  1. Hello fellow black mage - discard decks are fun. :)
    You may find that you have too many discard effects in the mid-late game. Finding a way to turn any dead cards into advantage, like Pack Rat, might be helpful.
    I've been using something like that in casual Legacy: had a lot of interesting comments on this part of the black card pool.

    1. Thanks! Sorry for the late reply. I appreciate the info, looking forward to working on this brew.
