Ashen Rider Discussion
1 day ago
In my experience with the deck, Grim Lavamancer is the best card in the deck in legacy. It deals with any creature in the format (well, except the combo creatures), and provides a solid clock that a lot of opponents don't realise they need to get rid of. I would play 4 over the swiftspears, especially considering you have 10 fetches.
In the sideboard, you need to be prepared for people cheating big things into play. Surgical Extraction and Tormod's Crypt for reanimator, Ensnaring Bridge or Ashen Rider for show and tell, and I see you already have those. Honestly, your sideboard seems pretty solid. I don't particularly like the exquisite firecraft, and would personally replace them with another Searing Blaze and two more Red Blast effects. I suppose if miracles is a really prominent matchup in your area the firecraft might be better because it's assured.
Honestly, your list looks great. I don't think that there's much to change unless it's as a meta call.

I tried making an Ertai deck a while back (I may try again after this comment XD). After going through the hassle of building my Tasigur reanimator deck, I found that "when this dies" abilities are too much of a hassle most of the time to care about.
Focus more on Enter the Battlefield triggers- that way, even without a sac outlet, your creatures/enchantments can still function. So for example, instead of Archon of Justice, run Ashen Rider. Also, run a few cards that can drop creatures to grave, and bring them back (ie Buried Alive and Ever After).

Sun Titan : goes in every white deck, apparently
Reveillark : this hits so many things...
Some value creatures:
Tidehollow Sculler : probably not great in multiplayer
Sin Collector : same as above
Skullclamp : good if you have enough 1 toughness creatures
Decree of Pain : might be too expensive
Other stuff to consider:
Helm of Possession : yes
Sidisi, Undead Vizier : tutor anything
Teysa, Orzhov Scion : generates tokens and instant speed removal, though it might not belong here
Loxodon Gatekeeper : Like blind obedience, but is a creature and hits lands.
Sadistic Hypnotist : A sac outlet that attacks opponents' hands

Thanks for the suggestion! I put it in the maybe list but it should probably go in the main, I haven't reviewed every lifelink card yet. Some of the maybe cards will probably be added later when I figure out if I really need my Ashen Rider and my Gray Merchant of Asphodel. This is very much a work in progress.

Version 1.3 is here!
In this version i removed a copy of each temple from the cube to encourage the use of mono colored and duo colored decks rather then 3 colored ones. I swapped out the temples in favour for:
This To give all colours an equal amount of cards since i added Chained to the rocks before and also buff some of the color combinations that is currently struggeling. I added in The 3 unknown shores for additional fixing that also works better with aggro decks since they where a bit slow with the temples.

YmPrat, thanks for your thoughtful suggestions! I'll try to respond to each one.
Gift of Immortality also interests me. I'm curious about how you can go infinite with Ashnod's Altar and Sun Titan though. It returns the creature at your end step. Doesn't that mean you can only use it once per turn?
I had Pawn of Ulamog in an early version of this deck. I found that for this deck it didn't tend to produce enough benefit. It works great in token decks where the goal is to go wide with a ton of tokens.
Alhammarret's Archive is another one I've considered. As you said, sometimes it works great and sometimes not. My deck does a solid job at drawing cards already. I will definitely include it if I feel I need more card draw though.
My playgroup doesn't use a ton of graveyard recursion. I tend to be the guy who uses the graveyard the most. I don't know how much value Bojuka Bog would give me with my playgroup. Since it still taps for black mana, it may be worth including anyway though.
Dictate of Erebos is already in my deck :) I love it. As you say, the flash ability totally makes it worth it.
With Utter End, Mortify, Archon of Justice, and Ashen Rider I feel like I have sufficient enchantment/artifact removal. The removal spells you mention are awesome just not sure if I need them. The one that interests me most though is Leonin Relic-Warder since I'd be able to use it multiple times in this deck. What should I cut to include it?
Graveborn Muse would be great in a zombie deck. I just don't know that I have enough zombies to make it work :(
Living Death is such a fun card. I'd love to include it. Again, what should I cut to be able to fit another recursion card?

Gift of Immortality gets tricky, though, when I'm playing with Lethal Vapors. Same goes for Conjurer's Closet. I did, though, find room for Ashen Rider in the list, and Painful Quandary was already in the 99! Thanks for the tips.

Gift of Immortality is great for death triggers, and Conjurer's Closet for flicker effects. I prefer Ashen Rider over Angel of Despair and Painful Quandary forces opponenets to either discard or lose 5 life, and if they discard a creature card it gets exiled.
