Ashen Rider Discussion

Other suggestions would be to remove Ashen Rider it’s to expensive. You have Archon of Justice and that is enough. You don’t need both.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose should be in the deck.

Remove Sadistic Hypnotist only because de it’s not an instant speed sac outlet.

Other death trigger life loss cards need to be added Vindictive Vampire , Pious Evangel  Flip.

To help get lands in to play you should look at Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

To help better control your opponents creatures I suggest Dictate of Erebos and gravepact

KibaAlpha I agree, Ashen Rider and Darien, King of Kjeldor could go. Gotta disagree on the Grand Abolisher , though. Lots of spellslingers and "nope" decks in my meta, and it has saved me the trouble of being hit with a counterspell or Maze of Ith . I like the idea of seeing Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in there, and I have a Phyrexian Reclamation lying around. Burnished Hart is a good staple, and I need to get my hands on an Anguished Unmaking . Thanks for the tips!

I would do the following if I was building a deck around both abilities of Teysa Karlov .

Remove, Ashen Rider to expensive not enough value, Darien, King of Kjeldor there are better cards that would synergize, Grand Abolisher not really needed

Check out the creatures from Ravnica Allegiance with the "afterlife" trigger.

Add, Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening , Bontu's Monument , Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Crypt Ghast , Anguished Unmaking , Generous Gift , Ethereal Absolution , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Having counters in a deck with Burning Inquiry seems ambitious. I’ll experiment with trimming Ilharg, the Raze-Boar and Ashen Rider for Pact of Negation . The other creatures are more important to OTKing, which we’ll want to be doing so as to not die to Pact.

Cyfer on Ib Halfheart, Goblin Sac-tician [PRIMER]

So I got to playtest and play with a few of the changes I made last night.

First thing's first: Experimental Frenzy , Ghirapur Orrery , and Gauntlet of Power out on the field together is absolutely nuts. Also had a Madblind Mountain for when I hit my third land like 8 cards down. Absolutely swimming in mana. I wasn't expecting Experimental Frenzy to perform as well as it did, even if I didn't have the Gauntlet it would still have been potent. Damping Engine resoundingly out for Mana Web . Sure, it was nice having the Engine to slow my opponents down a tad, and sac a mountain so that I could just Crucible of Worlds it right back, but I really would have preferred the Web when playing against Baral, Chief of Compliance . I took out Mycosynth Lattice , Goblin Welder , Treasure Nabber , Hellkite Tyrant , and Spine of Ish Sah , and didn't feel their presence missing at all. Shared Animosity was immediately removed by Ashen Rider

How do you feel about Chandra, Torch of Defiance ? I also really want to make a spot for Goblin Wizard but my deck is really starting to compete for spots, I don't feel like there are any dead cards 99% of the time, and I probably don't need him anyway.

ThousandOaks on Aminatou The Controller

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.

Possessed Skaab --> CMC 5, but exile on removal. I think you're covered by Archaeomancer and Snapcaster Mage

Gilded Lotus + Thran Dynamo : I'd remove these and add Talismans or Signets. Maybe worth using the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal instead?

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).

Return to Dust : You already have Act of Authority . I'd permanents with removal to better work with the blinking.

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.

WAR additions:

Other additions:


  • 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.

  • Any Clones ( Phyrexian Metamorph , Clever Impersonator , etc): Might be fun adds if you're looking for a little more interaction.
