Thanks a lot FlabbyAbs :)
If any of you have ideas of the positive evolutions or the new threats for this deck in the coming metagame Im curious. I noticed one Rakdos control with a similar defensive shell as mine had won in MTGO according to mtgtop8. There are different evolutions I could do.
First one is just playing energy cards to use Aether Hubs (live fast instead of painful lesson, or harnessed lightning instead of lightning strike, or both).
Second one is other plainswalkers. Angrath, the Flame-Chained could be nice, as well as Huatli, Warrior Poet. If I played the Aether Hubs (see point 1) I could add Vraska, Relic Seeker or even Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh Himself. The latest could even be a substitute wincon of sideboarding. Remove the 4 Axis/vanguard, add 3 Nicol Bolas and one Chandra, and 4 Duress for example.
Third one is adding resilient cards to wrathes instead of a little control. Like the new Rekindling Phoenix which seems nice to me, or getting one or two Hazoret mainboard.
What do you think?
Any other idea?

I do like the combo too and will likely play it very soon.But in Rakdos control not monoblack.Sweltering Suns, Chandra and Cut/Ribbons package needed. Even Angrath could be nice there.

Changes made, first RIX tournament, and a great 4 1 today. We finished tied and shared 1st place loot :)
Wins: Monoblack aggro, merfolk, constrictor and grixis scarab god
Loss: g3 jund vehicles (I admit that landing Galtha with heart of kiran is strong.
I added a fourth chandra on sideboard and did not regret it.

Geez... ramunap ruins banned. 2 more mountains? Too bad i cant flip rhe boros pathnof meetle, I would have liked it.
Too bad for temur too :p this deck was my favourite casualty. Anyway I expect even more weenie horde decks now. That will make some room for mine hopefully.
I should change solemnity for something else, not sure it will be very useful now.
Any ideas or comments?

I don't like shock a lot, I would play Chandra's Pyrohelix better: with the number of small aggro decks that will pop... look at yours :) ... it can be 2 casualties for one card easily. And you can still do 2 direct damages.
I also feel like Path would be great with some Enrage card. Even a unique one.
For Manabase I'm not very good but your deck seems quite easy to play anyway. I would just add 2 Stone Quarry.
Of Course Chandra herself could be great here too.

I used to play Ruins of Trokair as that deck's tapland. 2 White mana, early win... is it still legacy allowed?

+1 for my very favourite card in MTG. Still playing it in modern and you know what, it's working great...

I could put 2 ancient tomb, in that case. That's a good idea. I'm used to play chalice without anything in my modern build and even if not as powerful as a T1, it's still very annoying to a lot a Saheeli menaces. Chalices prevent bolts, path to exile or swords to plowshares, and such. Plus a huge percentage of cards in modern and I espect even more in legacy. That's why I have 2 drops instead of 1 drops.
Leylines are used to prevent discard, and blasts in your face redirected to Saheeli.
Abrades are to crush early creatures or pesky artefacts like pithing needles or painter servants.
Detention sphere removes any permanent, tokens, and is great to be blinked. Plus they are blue and can be discarded to FoW.
I know that build is very unusual and maybe I'll get crushed, but I would like to try it at least once. I think 6 cards for fast mana should be quite ok... in Legacy should I really play 8 of them? or even more? In that goal what would be the best set? The more non blue cards I have and the less are the Fow useful.
I am very grateful for your hints though :) thanks a lot.

Agreed but the plan is also to lock all the 1drop spells that are numerous in the format with t1 chalice.I m not familiar at all with legacy :) this is my modern build that works pretty good, with better counterspells and card draw.Without chalices I would fully agree.

Energy Variant here, this will probably be my next attempt: Axis of Mortality Combo energy version

I tried the boros version and made another 3-1.
I lost to UW control (without black, it's more difficult) and won vs a Rakdos control, Temur Energy, and Grixis. Same mechanics but definitely not the same deck so I won't put it into the statistics.
