Liliana, Death's Majesty
 
Yesterday I alluded to red's gradually-widening range of spell effects, but I actually think black is in just as much risk of being typecast. I know that discard is "unfun" and Vampiric Tutor effects (as brought into modern Magic by Liliana Vess herself) are "dangerous", but I think it's more dangerous for any color to become a one-note thing. That aside, if you have your sights set on some kind of reanimation strategy, it's hard to find a better enabler than Liliana here. Her Zombify effect can be used immediately on casting, and her loyalty-increasing ability not only interacts with it but also makes blockers. This is the sort of interaction it's worth building a deck around.
