Ashen Rider Discussion

@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.

Sorry about the super long delay, my life has been super crazy the last week with ACT testing and other personal things.
Taking a closer look at the list it actually seems pretty good for what it wants to be: A Teysa Karlov combo list.
Not sure if you've considered this, but Ashen Rider is super fun with Teysa. Sheoldred, Whispering One could also get out of hand. This is more personal preference, but Debtors' Knell is one of my favorite cards.
Overall the deck looks really sweet! Nice job man.

The swords ( FaI & FaF ) serve as protection to varying degrees, but honestly the worst way for Alesha to die is getting blocked by something bigger. If they use spot removal on her that's one less for getting rid of a combo piece (Karmic Guide, for example) and as I'm running cards like Animate Dead , Reanimate , etc. this can be good for me. Not that I wouldn't feel her loss - being slowed down sucks too.
The equipment slots unfortunately are tight (I even cut Skeleton Key , which seems great...might add it back) and truthfully I only added greaves back in (and Anger ) upon adding Mangara of Corondor to the deck so I could use him right away (not with Alesha, obviously). I guess Whispersilk Cloak might be good too, but I'm thinking the swords are better.
The things I'm contemplating atm are whether I should run any moon effects ( Blood Moon + Magus of the Moon ) which are incredibly good but would require adding more basics to the deck, and being able to combo at instant speed at the end of an opponent's turn with something like Through the Breach (utility use with cards like Ashen Rider , Academy Rector , etc.) or Scout's Warning .
I will cut that Bloodthrone Vampire sometime too, but I don't have any other free sac outlets on hand and want at least 3 (I actually had Ashnod's Altar in, but cut it since the vamp lady is recurring. Infinite colorless mana isn't as exciting when you need to add another card for it to be good.)
