See Challenge # 098.

Angelina Jolie as Liliana.

That -2 is cheaper than Beacon of Unrest has been, to my recollection. Zombify and Ashen Powder are 4 mana, but either of "any graveyard" or "artifact or creature" has always pushed the cost up to 5.

Also, um, what's up with that ultimate? It won't do anything against most players, and using it on yourself it's just a Buried Alive - which is good, but not planeswalker-ultimate-good, especially not one you've had to tick up to for four turns (cf Sarkhan Vol's ultimate firing after just two upticks). Maybe make it twenty cards and we'd be talking.

However, I agree Angelina Jolie is a very sensible choice for Liliana.

I'm with Alex on the second two abilities, but I do like the first.
I agree about Angelina for Liliana, too. I want to see Maleficent.

re. utimate : against decks with few win conditions, (eg control and combo, some midrange) it could be game-ending to deny them the chance to draw them.

up mana cost &starting loyalty, ultimate more cards

Hmm. If they've not got one of them in hand by five turns after you cast your 5-mana walker, perhaps. Only if they have no way to recur them or don't have their own walker/whatever on the battlefield by then. I suppose her + might help strip them out of their hand...
