Liliana of the Veil is a black human Planeswalker, introduced in late 2022 along with the Dominaria United card set.
She has lower than average health and average deck limits with a focus on Creatures. Her mana gain is like a tricolor Walker, with +3 to Red and Blue as well as Black, and neutral White and Green.
Liliana of the Veil's second ability is almost as expensive as her third, despite being a much weaker version of the same thing, but her third can create a strong swing in favor of her defense. She is one of not very many Planeswalkers that can directly destroy creatures without targeting them, avoiding Ward and Hexproof . An approximately equal number of PWs can do this by weakening enemies, but both means are rare. At higher levels, this third ability, An End for all Means, can destroy supports of any kind as well. An End for all Means also selects for the greatest casting cost, avoiding sub-optimal targets like Treasure and creature tokens. She can also kill creatures for less Loyalty, a little slower, by giving them Imminent Death ; at level 10-25, she can do this without targeting them, but the ability becomes targeted thereafter.
She also discards cards like L1 and L6, but equitably; not targeting the opponent's first card that likely has mana spent, like L1.
She has a Passive Ability, Power of the Veil, which, once per turn, can give her 3 Loyalty if an opponent's card goes to the graveyard and she chooses to lose 3 life.
Liliana of the Veil, sometimes called L9, is the ninth of many playable Planeswalkers in MtGPQ which embody Liliana Vess at different points in her life.

Liliana Vess was once a planeswalker short of compassion, seeing other individuals as mere tools for achieving her goals, means to an end. Some of her past experiences, however, changed her perspectives drastically. Now, she returns to her birthplace one more time, called by the mysterious Raven Man, to find it invaded by Phyrexia. Liliana shall fight with all her power, not only for herself, but to protect Dominaria.
