Ashen Rider Discussion

I recommend double-sleeving if you're using original dual. :-)
Also, I recommend removing:
Armageddon --> LOL, you just wanna [Armageddon + Teferi's Protection]
Temporal Mastery --> Temporal Manipulation is good enough.
Torrential Gearhulk --> You don't get much value from blinking this, unless you have reliable instant-speed blinks that I'm missing.
Jace, the Mind Sculptor : Maybe add more raw card advantage or filters to get rid of excess mana, instead? (But shoot, Jace is Jace, so there's that).
Brago, King Eternal : This is great, but requires both board state and combat dmg to really take advantage with it.
Spellseeker : I count 9 possible fetches. I don't think you get your value in. I would only keep this in if you're running the Dramatic Scepter combo.
Bolas's Citadel Give it a playtest. I think you might need a little more top deck matters, but your commander can help.
Spark Double NAS-TAY!
Oath of Kaya Spot removal/life gain.
Massacre Girl Board wipe on a permanent. You can always blink her the same turn to get the ball rolling. Also gets around indestructible.
Ashiok, Dream Render Stops opponents searches, mills, and can be reset by Aminatou
Deadeye Navigator gives you some evasion AND instant speed blinks.
Peregrine Drake why not?
Mystic Remora you can blink away the cumulative upkeep
Reflector Mage Bounce Removal
Disinformation Campaign : Double Card Advantage. Hits your opponents hand, and gives you a card.
Liliana, Dreadhorde General : This is a maybe. If you have aminatou when it hits the battlefield, you have potential of forcing players to sac 4 creatures that turn. Situational, but powerful. Probably have better stuff at the 6 drop.
Ashen Rider : Another maybe. Benefit of exiling ANY permenant is worth looking into. 8 CMC is harsh though.

@scotchtapedsleeve: Hmmm... Well, I just need to get my mind out of this for now. Backing this on topic like some rando's Uncle's Ratty Old Pickup (Actually, that sounds stupid in my book, considering my current status as an Uncle myself... :/), I still probably need some advice for several things; I have too many decks to cut until the legal 100 card max.
I'm still working on a Doomsday Package. Predict seems good (According to a Primer for this, it counts as 1+2, for a Three Point Avg alone. I'm using Laboratory Maniac , Pact of Negation (Unless Foil is good for you as well.), I don't want to use Lion's Eye Diamond , or Yawgmoth's Will , but I do need a mana source... So, we have three cards to use: Predict , Laboratory Maniac , & Pact of Negation / Foil . Any two ideas that would work here?
Here's some hate though: I'm trying to make a combo w/ Shimmer , but I'm wondering which of the Following is better: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , or Blanket of Night . The Former is a land, but I dunno if phasing Urborg is good or not. Blanket of Night isn't a land; & is odd casted as well. Thoughts?
Anyways, that's all I have for now; though I still have some things to finish up at this time. I'll see you all later.

Oath of Teferi , Venser, the Sojourner , Noxious Gearhulk , Ashen Rider , Angel of Despair , I am personally a big fan of Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Jace's Mindseeker is decent, Conjurer's Closet for sure... maybe Jace, Unraveler of Secrets for top manipulation.

Love the deck - been wanting to make a similar one for a while. accordianing suggestions to avoid filling the page.
Roc Egg - double dips as well, making multiple 3/3 flying tokens when it dies with your general on the field.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - pumps out lifelinkers, pumps out emblems. double win.
Hallowed Spiritkeeper - the bigger the graveyard, the bigger the swarm
Anointed Procession - Double up on tokens. works with Treasure & Clue tokens too
Wurmcoil Engine - double dips into a on death trigger
Hangarback Walker - double dips into, you guessed it, a death trigger. sensing a theme in my suggestions...
Pitiless Plunderer - gives treasure tokens on you creature's death.
Revel in Riches - gives treasure tokens on enemy creature's death, and an alternate win con
Sacred Mesa - also triggers a sac proc each turn you keep it around
Hidden Stockpile - a sac outlet that grants creatures.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion - pumps out tokens 3 at a time, or wide down the fatties. or both.
Twilight Drover - make tokens when tokens die. the cycle continues.
Custodi Soulbinders - makes tokens based on how many creatures were in play.
White Sun's Zenith - EoT mana dump for all the tokens. follow up with general cast, swing.
Entrapment Maneuver - force a solo attacker to die, makes tokens. handy little overlooked combat trick.
Lingering Souls - kind of a staple of Orzhov spirits, was kinda supprised not to see it.
Luminarch Ascension - stall to make stupidly cheap angels.
Shadows of the Past - lets you dig quickly through your deck with aenough death effects. doubles as a recurable life drain effect once your yard is deep enough
Sangromancer - death is life. who knew?
Bloodchief Ascension starts out small, but starts draining hard once it gets rolling.
Vampiric Rites is a solid, cheap card draw engine for tokens.
Thallid Soothsayer is it's legged, slightly more expensive brother (no life gain, but no black mana cost. more expensive, but has legs. bit of give and take, really)
Seraph of the Scales - this card is solid, if not amazing, so I was rather suprised to not see it here.
Yosei, the Morning Star - either lock down 2 opponents for a turn, or one opponenet for 2 turns. either way is a solid win.
Archon of Justice - exile a threat on death. simple enough.
Ashen Rider - triggers coming and going, but kinda pricey mana wise. worth looking at if nothing else.
Kokusho, the Evening Star - drain ALL THE THINGS!
Solemn Simulacrum - goes in most decks, didn't see it here so I figured I'd mention it.
Vindictive Lich - gives alot of options for a single death effect.

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.
Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).
Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.
Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".
I might add more suggestions if I think about them.
