Ashen Rider Discussion

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:

Maybes:

  • 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.

-Arcanity- on Burn in Hell

The sideboard seems neat. A card you could try is Ashen Rider , if you face Show and Tell decks very often.

BMHKain on Several things; & some questions ...

@scotchtapedsleeves: 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?

For the Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool combo, can you think of any alts for the latter? Just wondering...

Since I'll be running Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt again, should I replace Ashen Rider w/ Angel of Despair again?

Is this combo too much?: Leonin Arbiter + Maralen of the Mornsong + Necropotence + Children of Korlis ? How do you think it works; & is it effective? Should I just keep the latter 2 instead if not?

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.

Ashen Rider is a great card to blink but a little costly, Conjurer's Closet is another good one, I also run Venser, the Sojourner , Jace's Mindseeker , and Magister Sphinx is also good.

[email protected]_only on Teysa's Token Engine

Love the deck - been wanting to make a similar one for a while. accordianing suggestions to avoid filling the page.

Origin Spellbomb - double dips as part of "Lay me Down to Rest" here, allowing extra card draw for token generation.

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...

Sifter of Skulls - acts as an additional Pawn of Ulamog , but gives them 1/1 s instead of 0/1s

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.

Legion's Landing  Flip - makes a single token for 1. lingers a bit, then turns into a land that makes tokens.

Lingering Souls - kind of a staple of Orzhov spirits, was kinda supprised not to see it.

Luminarch Ascension - stall to make stupidly cheap angels.

Massacre Wurm - each creature of theirs that dies will take another nibble out of their health. it all adds up.

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?

Pious Evangel  Flip doesn't look it, but his flip is another Zulaport Cutthroat for your deck.

Bloodchief Ascension starts out small, but starts draining hard once it gets rolling.

Martyr's Bond is Butcher of Malakir for ALL permanent types you control.

gravepact and / or Dictate of Erebos act as non-wrathable butchers as well.

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)

Perilous Myr - can be a decent source of colorless burn as needed, when paired with a good reanimation engine.

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.

stensiagamekeeper on Interesting Budget Legacy Combo

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.

Eldrich Evolution decks are usually good at getting out a turn 2 Magus of the Moon / Eidolon of Rhetoric off a mana dork for the occasional free win.

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.
