Hour of Glory

Instant

Exile target creature. If that creature is a God, its controller reveals his or her hand and exiles all cards from it with the same name as that creature.

Hour of Glory Discussion

Sorceries: If you need some good board wipes for a reasonable cost (money wise, sadly not mana wise), I would look at something like Heaven//Earth (It couldnt find this card for some reason), You can take out flyers one turn and then save mana and let everyone forget that you have a nice boardwipe to cast right from your graveyard! In that vain of mana sinks Cut//Ribbons (It couldnt find this card for some reason) can also just end games if you can get enough mana for the second half of the spell, and as long as your graveyard isnt exiled you can get everyone at anytime. If you plan on having a good chunk of creatures tapped Harvest Season can be excellent ramp, as long as you are running a decent amount of basics. Never/Return is a good spot removal spell in your set as well, as you can take out any creature or planeswalker if needed. Beneath the Sands is a good ramp spell, that has cycling in case you don't need it. Hour of Revelation is also a great board wipe if needed.

Instants: If you want some counter spells, Cancel and Countervailing Winds are some of the better options available to you. Sadly there isn't a lot in the set to specifically target down artifacts and enchantments, but I do like Forsake the Worldly , Dissenter's Deliverance and Commit//Memory (It couldnt find this card for some reason). Hour of Glory seems like a good option for some creature removal as well, but there seems to be a lot of that from this block in particular

Artifacts/Enchantments: Seems good in these category might want to consider a mana rock like Pyramid of the Pantheon , it starts out slow, but can become a great mana source afterwards, as well as something like Sunset Pyramid for a bit of card advantage then some selection. Same goes for Riddleform , but instead of advantage it gives you a creature for a turn. and Cast Out can help take a permanent out for a bit if needed.

Planeswalkers: This one is a weird category for me to make remarks on. I know that not everyone likes Planeswalkers, but I love them. That being said though, this set has a few interesting ones, that might not be able to help you particularly much on one hand, Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is an insane game closer, but is a bit expensive(both mana and money wise). Samut, the Tested can provide huge versatility, isn't too bad price wise, and is probably one of the better options for you. Gideon of the Trials is a pretty good flavor win, and has some good versatility but you have to pick between him being an attacker or protecting you from something big on board. and the only other one I'd even consider would probably be Nissa, Steward of Elements , not because shes that great, but because she can give you some card selection and even some good value with her [0] ability if used with her [+2]. I would only pick one or two of these though depending on the slots you have left from other stuff, as they give you some good value, but don't always progress your game plan with the deck by themselves.

Creatures: For the most part your creatures are fine. I'll just be putting in some suggestions for other options/utility. That being said Angel of Condemnation can be slow but ultimately help create mana ramp by flickering golos, then taking out some important creatures your opponents might lay down. Dreamstealer can offer some pretty good disruption against your opponents and make them have to keep a couple of creatures back as blockers. Majestic Myriarch might be a good finisher, but you might be good on those. Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun is also great for token decks.

Last but not least: Lands: These seem to be good, but watch out as too many utility lands can hurt your deck, and just make sure you add enough basics in for searches to actually grab the color you need. There are the cycling lands for this set, but they can be pricey :(

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

This deck looks interesting and janky.

I also spy you have things you want in the 'yard and you run Wrenn and Six. I don't quite see why you're running Wrenn right now, but that can be easily justified.

Faithless Looting is extremely good at both of those things. The card selection and ability to filter away the lands you're recurring with Wrenn is amazing. You can also pitch things you need to pitch if need be, like a card you want to bounce back with the Arcanist.

I'd also say see if you can fit in some of the cycling lands, because they're cheap and enable Wrenn on a whole new level. Lonely Sandbar would probably be the one you want for this deck.

A copy or two of Hour of Glory may also be in order, as it can enable a Turn-2 Rhino slam dunk alongside Faithless Looting .

Happy brewing!

Not yet, but I'm planning on getting this deck for MTGO and playing some competitive leagues to see how it does though. My best guess not knowing the matchup perfectly but knowing both decks well is that Red-Black probably wins Game 1 due to lack of permanent answers to things like Hazoret the Fervent and Scrapheap Scrounger and the fact that main deck we have a lot of X/1's that die to Goblin Chainwhirler. Games 2 and 3 I think the deck has a much better shot as we board out some of the X/1's for Gifted Aetherborn and bring in the rest of the Hour of Glory to more permanently deal with Hazoret the Fervent and Scrapheap Scrounger. I don't know how those games go, as I haven't played the matchup yet; but I am pretty sure Games 2-3 the deck does much better.

Accounting of Hours

Legendary Enchantment- Saga

Destroy all creatures with power 3 or less. (Hour of Revelation)

Until end of turn God creatures lose indestructible. Target god you control fights another creature. (Hour of Glory)

Search your library for a desert card and create three 2/2 black zombie creature tokens. Transform Accounting of Hours. (Hour of Promise)


Downfall of Amonkhet

Creatures you control gain eternalize (their externalize cost is equal to their mana cost). You may eternalize up to 5 creatures in your graveyard, if you do you lose 5 life. (Hour of Eternity)

Exile all cards from all graveyards, then each player sacrifices all nonland permanents they control and discards their hand. (Hour of Devastation)

Exile all cards in your library except for the bottom five, then each player shuffles their graveyard into their hand and draws 7 cards. (Bye Bye Amonkhet)

==========

The words on parentheses wouldn't actually be on the card, they're just there for the people that don't know the hours. Anyway, I think this would be a really good card.

Challenge: Create a sage based on either:

A) The destruction of Ulamog and Kozilek on Zendikar

or

B) The trapping Emrakul in the moon on Innastrad

Your curve seems a bit steep, m8.

I would go:

-1x Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

-1x The Eldest Reborn

-1x Profane Procession  Flip

-1x Hour of Glory


+1x Fatal Push

+1x Vraska's Contempt

+2x Renewed Faith

Deck seems nice, first time I see Gideon's Intervention somewhere tho.

I would recommand to swap Hour of Glory for Vraska's Contempt ! Even if it's 2BB ( more colored ), I think it's worth to have an instant way to deal with a PW.

Upon consideration I’ve taken out the Contempts for Hour of Glory While it doesn’t gain life or hit Planeswalkers it’s a bit more realistic for me to cast in a deck with only 6 actual black sources. The double black for Vraska's Contempt just seems a bit too ambitious.
