Glorifier of Dusk Discussion

You need to do more than just gain life to win a match of Magic.
With Sarkhan's Dragon Den [Guilds of Ravnica] I've been able to hit for 30 life few in one turn.
What you want to do is include more cards that will turn life into more of an advantage.
Here are some suggestions to think about:
Adanto Vanguard - use this to indefinitely block huge Creatures without Trample.
Ashes of the Abhorrent - gets value out of Creatures, even if they die.
Fungal Plots - gives you draw.
Glorifier of Dusk - spend life to give it Flying and Vigilance.
Up Resplendent Angel to four copies. It is a game changer and two copies double the amount of Angels.
You need to have something in your Sideboard to protect you from board wipes.
I like Make a Stand.
I would really like to see less Creatures in the Sideboard, and stuff like Naturalize there.
If you're playing against something like Goblins, Naturalize is wasted in your Sideboard.
Hope that helps.

Looks great but I have a couple of thoughts:
My initial impression is that Glorifier of Dusk is a better 5 drop than Vanquisher's Banner because it gets you cards right away and also applies pressure. I'll admit that the banner does seem better in a control matchup because it dodges essence scatter and removal.
If you are looking for more incremental gain then I thinkTwilight Prophet beats Vanquisher banner. This also gives you the flexibility of just sitting back and draining your opponent while making horses. The bad news is that she dies. I would recommend fooling around with these over Vanquisher banner though. Also, it doesn't even hit horses! Good Grief!
I think that Adanto Vanguard is so good you should go up to a 4 of. Forces your opponent to have Moment of Craving or a Magma Spray.
I think you can go two Dusk over fumigate. Fumigate is better against straight aggro decks because of the life gain but you already have a settle and the ability to just trade a bunch of creatures and Dawn them back seems great. It's also cheaper and has caked in card advantage.
I like Sanctum Seeker. Gives you great reach an survivability I think it's worth the tax on your mana.
I like Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle more than I like queen's commision. With your curve you are planning to attack on turn 3 anyway so Mavren is the same thing as queen's commision with additional value later on. The only bad news is that it can get essence scattered I guess but I think it's worth it.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan seems good enough to be a 2 or 3 of. Tough to see where to cut. Could be Radiant Destiny. Just seems so conditional. It's a 3 mana legions lieutenant that requires you already have a board presence. I just think it fails too often to be better than Yahenni.
Interested in your lack of Fatal Push in the main. I don't think it's wrong, just interesting. I suppose you are mostly white anyway and mostly the beatdown anyway. Still good to kill sneks and siphoners though so I'm glad it's in the side.
One more card to consider that I think is underutilized (though not sure if good enough) is Elenda, the Dusk Rose. it's good board wipe insurance and sort of combos with Yahenni. Not sure if it can fit though, the horse plan is probably better.

What is your budget for this deck? I can provide better suggestions with a budget in mind. But as it is right now, I would remove Vampire Revenant, Duskborne Skymarcher, Exultant Skymarcher, Glorifier of Dusk, Skyblade of the Legion, and probably Voracious Vampire. You definitely want a playset of Legion Lieutenant, Adanto Vanguard, and Skymarcher Aspirant. Also, go with a full playset of Dusk Legion Zealot. Again, with a budget in mind I can provide better choices.

These are some of the cards I'd recommend: ritual of rejuvenation , Axis of Mortality , Glorifier of Dusk, Fumigate, Vraska's Contempt, Sword-Point Diplomacy, Arguel's Blood Fast, Hour of Revelation and possibly Ashes of the Abhorrent . Cards I would probably drop are: Start / Finish, Hidden Stockpile and Desert's Hold. What are your thoughts?

I would highly consider running Yahenni's Expertise over Bontu's Last Reckoning. The potential downside of the Reckoning is just too great, unless someone is playing green stompy. Another great card for this is Lost Legacy. With Carnage Tyrant and Hazoret the Fervent in the current meta, there are several cards you simply will not ever want to see on the battlefield. On to your current list: I think that the Blood Fast is not good enough to include, especially without the lifesink cards such as Adanto Vanguard and Glorifier of Dusk to guarantee a flip early. Another great card is Vona, Butcher of Magan, as the ability can both remove troublesome permanents and help you toward a flipped Blood Fast. Another great card to consider is Dusk, as it will miss most of your Vampires. Finally, the combo I mentioned earlier is Adanto Vanguard + Axis of Mortality . I hope this helped!

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I have a few suggestions for you:
- First of all, I would run a lot fewer 1- and 2-ofs, and a lot more 3- and 4-ofs. It lets you only play your best cards, as well as drastically increasing your consistency. Cards like Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Inspiring Cleric should probably be 4-ofs, while I would cut cards like Encampment Keeper and Cobbled Wings entirely
- If you're looking for some other good cards to run, I would consider Sanctum Seeker, Bishop of Rebirth, Deathless Ancient, and/or Glorifier of Dusk.
- Finally, I would recommend some number of dual-lands; anything from Evolving Wilds to Forsaken Sanctuary to Unclaimed Territory to Concealed Courtyard.
In any case, awesome deck!

shinobigarth that was my immediate thought, but I'm pretty sure all the other vampires (Glorifier of Dusk's flavor text, for example) use current english. We'll see when we get a closer look at them in the magic story articles.
