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


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.

Hey, looks good. Chainwhirler into Bolas is really good.

Consider 4x Chainwhirler, 3-4x Bolas--1-2x less Demanding and 2x less Contempt? Demanding will be really good post rotation when Glorybringer is gone, but until rotation Glorybringer is better. You honestly don't need another five drop Dragon, 4x Glorybringer is all you need. If you can get 1-2 more Bolas I would add them. Being able to curve Abrade into Chainwhirler into Bolas is really back-breaking for your opponent especially if Chainwhirler killed something when it ETB. Following them with Glorybringer turn five is game over.

For the manabase consider more blue sources? Only seven blue sources is low to be able to cast Bolas turn four. You want minimum ten sources to consistently play Bolas turn four. Currently you're relying too much on Sarkhan to cast Bolas which is too problematic. Because of Chainwhirler consider 4x Spirebluff and 4x Falls? Including as well 1x Island (Field of Ruin insurance).

The manabase also doesn't have enough black sources to play Contempt. 11 black sources is not enough for a card. To play Contempt you want a primarily heavy black manabase. Some options that could replace Contempt are Hour of Glory, Doomfall, Unlicensed Disintegration. Any of these or some of each could be sideboard cards. I recommend Hour and Doomfall, but I don't think you need them main deck.

Consider this manabase (23 red, 11 black, 11 blue):

  • 2x Hub
  • 4x Slough
  • 4x Summit
  • 4x Falls
  • 4x Spirebluff
  • 7x Mountain
  • 1x Swamp
  • 1x Island

This manabase can only support a splash of blue and black for a few single blue or single black cards; really just for Bolas and a few sideboard cards.

Good luck with your deck.

I would suggest 3-4 Fatal Push and at least 2 Vraska's Contempt or Hour of Glory depending on what your budget allows. I also feel like Liliana, Untouched By Death will be better main board for the zombie deck although Liliana, Death's Majesty is great in some matchups and should be considered for the side board. Instead of Plague Belcher I’d run Scrapheap Scrounger for the much better long term value.

I think zombies will end up being at least ok, maybe good but it’s hard to tell at this point.

Hey, you're welcome. If your FNM meta is not invested with Chainwhirler than playing less anthems is an option. If you're expecting Chainwhirlers than playing tokens without anthems is too risky, not good because a single Chainwhirler can wipe out your entire 1/1 Vamp token army which is way too much value for your opponent. My suggestions are based from not knowing what your FNM meta is like.

If aggro isn't working for you than go with a midrange build of Vamps, but mixing the two in my opinion is not going to work. For a midrange build with Seeker, Champion of Dusk and Gifted Aetherborn is a fine plan. As far as five drops go for Vamps can't get much better than Champion of Dusk with a life gaining, token strategy.

With midrange because of of Seeker, Aetherborn and Champion then black is more important in the manabase than my example with Marshal. More cards that create tokens are good with both Seeker and Champion such as Queen's Commission. These token creation cards can more easily give you a Vamp army then playing single Vamps.

Here's an example of a possible midrange token/lifegain build (deck price $70):

  • 4x Vicious Conquistador
  • 4x Legion Lieutenant
  • 4x Gifted Aetherborn
  • 3x Sanctum Seeker
  • 3x Champion of Dusk

  • 4x Call to the Feast
  • 4x Queen's Commission
  • 3x Gideon's Reproach

  • 3x Legion's Landing
  • 2x Radiant Destiny
  • 2x Cast Out

  • 3x Territory
  • 4x Sanctuary
  • 4x Courtyard
  • 4x Dunes
  • 8x Swamp
  • 1x Plains

If playing this at FNM then you should consider making a 15 card sideboard? The sideboard can be the place where you can put certain cards that are good in certain matchups, but are not necessary to be in the main deck.

Cards such as Duress and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip for control matchups, Deadeye Tracker for graveyard hate, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Bishop of Rebirth, Twilight Prophet, different more conditional removal options like Cast Down, Hour of Glory, Ixalan's Binding, etc.

Example of a sideboard:

  • 4x Duress
  • 2x Arguel's Blood Fast
  • 2x Deadeye Tracker
  • 2x Cast Down
  • 1x Hour of Glory
  • 1x Ixalan's Binding
  • 1x Vona, Butcher of Magan
  • 1x Bishop of Rebirth
  • 1x Twilight Prophet
