Heartless Black-Red

Posted in Feature on December 5, 2011

By Wizards of the Coast

The quirky Innistrad rare Heartless Summoning pops up in Standard decklists here and there, but usually it appears alongside green fatties or blue control elements. User Octop on Magic Online bucked this trend entirely, running a black-red take on the enchantment. Powering out Solemn Simulacrum, Olivia Voldaren, and even Bloodgift Demon, Octop cruised this deck all the way to a 4-0 finish in a recent Daily Event. Could this finally be the breakout Heartless Summoning deck we've been waiting for? Shuffle it up and see for yourself!
