I've played a similar list against Affinity, Dredge, 12 Post, Jund, StoneBlade, TES/ANT, and Show&Tell. It's done quite well, actually.
Ashen Rider hoses S&T, Price of Progress completely wrecks most decks in the meta. Eidolon of the Great Revel is phenomenal, and eats removal like a boss. Our TES/ANT matchup has improved due to it being a Pyrostatic Pillar on a stick.
I actually play something pretty similar, but I found a couple things, and just wanted to give you my 2 cents.
2) I had 24 lands in my original build, and I got seriously flooded, so I cut it down to 21 and now its a lot smoother.
3) Empty the Pits is a delve's deck best friend. I won 2 games during FNM with it. It's just devastating if they dont know you have it. Cast it end of turn for 7-10 zombies and it could be game as long as they dont have Bile Blight .
I am curious how Pharika, God of Affliction is working for you though, I ended up cutting her from my list. And curious as to why no Nemesis of Mortals or Courser of Kruphix . Otherwise solid list, check out mine if you got time.
@kingkongkong Thanks, glad I could help!
@lil_cheez That's a pretty cool idea. However, I'm not really sure that I want more noncreature spells in this deck. 27 creatures is already kind of low for a dredge deck that runs 4 Nighthowler . I feel like See the Unwritten would be a lot better in an Abzan dredge deck where you have access to Ashen Rider and Siege Rhino , as it would be easier to get Ferocious and your targets would be more powerful. In this deck, my only possible Ferocious creatures are Nemesis of Mortals and Nighthowler . Thanks, though!
I think the deck is good, but the only real reanimation target you have is Ashen Rider . The deck could work, but it'll be better after more reanimation worthy cards are released. I think you'd be better off going more midrange than reanimation right now, but that's just my opinion.
Anyways, +1 for a reanimation deck and good luck with the deck.
Also, I would try to fit in atleast one Champion of Stray Souls with multiple abzan ascendancies out it gets nuts!!!
Good Luck and happy gravedigging ;)
@Kylzavara I know that Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is pretty fragile, but she's the deck's best graveyard engine in terms of cards milled per turn. Also, even if she is killed the usually leaves behind at least one 2/2 zombie so it's rare to get no value out of her. I find that she's my favorite card to draw in the early game.
Ruthless Ripper is actually a pretty cool idea that I'll have to consider. I find that Bile Blight tends to work well though against aggro, and Hero's Downfall is usally a shoe-in for midrange matchups with 'walkers. I'll test the Ripper and see if she's worth a permanent slot! Thanks for your suggestions!
Wow, I made an almost identical list, except i splashed white, cut out Nighthowler and added Ashen Rider and Siege Rhino . Being able to Whip out Ashen Rider is incredible and completely changes the game. I've had great luck with Hornet Queen, and also want to add a 1-Off of Empty the Pits . I'm glad this deck is working as it validates my choice! Are you finding a luck with Sidisi? She's so vulnerable, even to bile blight, that's the only reason I splashed white instead of blue.
+1 From me.
