@lethalitycomplex: hmm that is true and of course I really only have experience with my Local store where that does see play. as for Ashen Rider yes it sees alot of play in my area. My own Superfriends deck runs it for fun

@Legend06: Then it would really depend on the meta on which the deck is being played. If people know the combo, then yeah, sure, Show and Tell would be a bad idea and Academy Rector would be better. Maybe sideboard one and run the other depending on the other decks at the table? As for Ashen Rider though, does that see play? 8 for a 5/5 flier with ETB exile a permanent seems just a bit expensive. I suppose in Esper though when you have Deadeye Navigator and it's abusable...

@lethalitycomplex: unless of course they drop Acidic Slime Angel of Despair or Ashen Rider for starters then your omniscience is gone and they get a free creature... always a downfall to show and tell. Academy Rector is one of the best ways to get Omniscience out quickly as most players don't generally waste a removal on a 1/2 creature regardless of what it does unless they know your deck.

And if you did splash black I would switch Archon of Justice for Ashen Rider. Does more things and better but is higher cmc.

I was thinking about Ashen Rider as a finisher if I splashed for black.

Running eight fetches, you could easily find Taiga. You could also play around Wasteland, not fetching for it unless you have to cast Destructive Revelry. You could even sideboard Taiga, to fool the opponent. I wouldn't worry about Price of Progress hitting you for two. It'll often hit them for 6+ as a coup de tat. You could also side in Pithing Needle naming Wasteland...

Ensnaring Bridge is also a good choice, as it's good against Reanimator as well. I like Ashen Rider because it fits into our Aggro plan. I like 3x copies, as you need it against all variants of S&T. It also can't be FoW'd when they play S&T... I'd take out two Shushers and a Pyroblast or Grim Lavamancer. Shushers are nice against grindy tempo/control decks; I run a few SB.
