The fearsome necromancer Liliana Vess has graced many a Magic card. So what happens if we put them all in the same deck?

What happens is we make our opponent tear out their hair. Across the five Lilianas in Pioneer and Lily-themed spells like Liliana's Triumph and Settle the Score, we have access to oodles of removal, discard and sacrifice effects—all the elements of mono-black control. Let the agony commence.
