Running towards Emrakul (who has been causing too much trouble in Innistrad), trying to take the beastly creature down and restore peace among the townspeople. Who is this person that is able to raise an army of the dead and attack Emrakul?
It is the return of Lilliana!
Lilliana, the Last Hope's mana cost is pretty low, at only one colorless and two black to cast. Her loyalty counter is three, which is also pretty low; hopefully the other player doesn't get a chance to kill her too quickly. Lilliana's abilities seem to work great when coupled with a Zombie themed deck.
Her abilities are as follows:
[+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, put X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens onto the battlefield, where X is two plus the number of Zombies you control."
As I've asked before, will this be seeing play despite some of the bad comments made about this card so far? It’s possible that we will be seeing a lot of Zombie decks being brewed, maybe even with the Pro-Players.
How do you feel about this new Lilliana?
As always thanks for reading my blog!
