2014 Commander Deck – Sworn to Darkness


Having already taken a look at the Built from ScratchGuided by Nature, and Forged in Stone 2014 Commander Decks, now its time to go at little dark. Okay, a lot dark. The 2014 black commander deck is called Sworn to Darkness, and at a glance it is everything players will be looking for in a top-tier black deck.


What does it do? This deck focuses on getting a lot of mana in your pool, making sure none of your creatures stay in your graveyard for long, destroying your opponent’s creatures, and dealing with the currency that is Life Points. Its a strong deck, one you can never underestimate.

Lets have a look at its makeup:

  • Creatures (28): Skirsdag High Priest, Nantuko Shade, Vampire Hexmage, Burnished Hart, Flesh Carver, Crypt Ghast, Disciple of Bolas, Evernight Shade, Abyssal Persecutor, Liliana’s Reaver, Nekrataal, Magus of the Coffers, Raving Dead, Shriekmaw, Bloodgift Demon, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Drana – Kalastria Bloodchief, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Morkrut Banshee, Grave Titan, Phyrexian Gargantua, Pontiff of Blight, Reaper from the Abyss, Xathrid Demon, Butcher of Malakir, Overseer of the Damned, Pestilence Demon
