Hour of Promise


Search your library for up to two land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Then if you control three or more Deserts, create two 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens. With the Hekma breached and its protection removed, the deserts swept in.

A lot of these I either considered or forgot existed. xD

I used to run Mouth of Ronom , but Barbarian Ring is sweet!

I've been back and forth on Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage , but I'll revisit it.

Splendid Reclamation is cool, but I prefer it on a creature that Mills me.

I'll have to add Inkmoth Nexus . Way too good not to.

Pir's Whim is one I forgot about, along with Hour of Promise .

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll have to check out your deck!

Love the deck! Land matters is very close to my heart, I run a Jund Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper lands matter build with a combo finish and it is by FAR my favorite deck. Seky Seky Five Dolla: Sek'Kuar Lands Primer

Love the Naya colors for this build. The white utility lands in particular make me insanely jealous of the color identity.

Just a few random thoughts - Barbarian Ring is an often active, very inexpensive way to achieve something similar to Mouth of Ronom whilst upping your color producing land count.

Vesuva is an all star. Thespian's Stage is likewise dynamite even without Dark Depths .

Hour of Promise often feels like the most powerful card in the deck.

Inkmoth Nexus is a great alternate win con paired with Kessig Wolf Run

Pir's Whim is just phenomenal. Does all the things we want and can take a removal slot instead of a land/tutor slot.

Splendid Reclamation could be World Shaper / The Mending of Dominaria #3. I personally prefer it to mending myself.

Anyways awesome deck! Happy brewing!

In the ideal world I would like to see Three Visits put into modern horizons, but would absolutely settle for Nature's Lore . The reason I would like to see that would be for Scapeshift decks. Wizards isn’t interested in printing efficient ramp in standard anymore. We get things like Nissa's Triumph or Hour of Promise . Either they are high costed and into play, or just get put into hand at low costed and the land is always tapped. I want efficient ramp into play untapped.

Since you're red green, you could pretty easily throw a Valakut package in there.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle , Thespian's Stage , Vesuva , and Scapeshift . Gives you extra value from playing Mountain s and gives you a game winning combo. Combos really well with landfall guys like Omnath, Locus of Rage , Rampaging Baloths , and Lotus Cobra .

A few other cards that could help with that strategy, Boundless Realms as a second Scapeshift effect. Also, great with the landfall dudes. Hour of Promise and Tempt with Discovery to grab Valakut + Thespian. Prismatic Omen helps a whole lot, but doesn't do much outside of the combo except ease color generation. Since most of these are instant/sorceries they work with your Commander's ability as well.

I'm also a Gruul commander player. I run a Borborygmos Enraged deck, and it's a bit of a lands matter / burn deck. Hence my suggestions, lol.

Hey! Great build, just wanted to make two suggestions. I run Muldrotha lands (although it is more geared toward good stuff) and one of my win-cons is Torment of Hailfire , like yours. I would -highly- recommend Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo, alongside Vesuva and (a card you're already running) Thespian's Stage . A couple cards that help enable it and work to find Dark Depths : Pir's Whim and Hour of Promise . Once you have 20+ mana, recurring Emrakul, the Promised End or Mindslaver each turn can be a fun back-up plan. Check my list for more cool ideas!

I like this, seems very nasty but like a very fun deck to play. May be a bit confused but Nissa Revane slots right in here and gets your Archdruid and any other elves you might need. Also I think Hour of Promise or the likes of other cards that search for lands other than basic will greatly assist you in getting your big mana out onto the board. Great deck though, happy brewing!
