Today I purchase a War of the spark booster (I never do this thing, I always just buy the cards I want) but, to my surprise, I got Liliana, Dreadhorde General

At first glance, it seems to be a good inclusion to my Markov fast aggro deck (link to the decklist in my sig)


1. For 6, I can kill 6 creatures, sacrifice 2 tokens and draw cards if I just -4 it as it enter, so not hat bad
2. the -9 is game over
3. I will normally will have creatures to protect her
4. If my creatures get wiped then I will draw a card for each of those without the painfull consecuences of dark prophecy


1. 6 mana is a lot, my normal curve in Edgar is 1-3, I have only a couple 4 drops and 1-2 5 drops that reaaly makes an instant diference
2. The token is a zombi
3. I just can't protect her from spells, my deck is full aggro so I wont be using faith's shield effects

What do you think, it is worth the slot?

It's 6 mana in a deck with 33 lands. No thanks.
Furthermore, it's not like it wins the game when she lands... she's a long-game grind engine that lets you trade creatures for other cards. Her best ability is probably her static first ability, but you could get that from Dark Prophecy instead.

Late to the party...
I have that Liliana in my zombie tribal deck with The Scarab God as commander. All the Zambies!
