Ashen Rider Discussion

Severein Ah so I read it wrong lol that would be horrible if it worked that way though, but irregardless doesn't seem too bad.
Thing with Grand Abolisher though is that it can be such a great utility card so no one can do anything to you in your turn but yea he is easily removed with a simple Exile lol or Destroy Creature card or minus counters. The reason I liked him though was because I couldn't get countered bringing in ETB effect creatures or creatures in general like Ashen Rider or Angel of Despair, Avacyn, Angel of Hope or even Grave Titan as examples. Even protects me against Exiles in my turn. But yea if you think I should get rid of him I'll definitely do it.
I think even having something like Mogis's Marauder in here to give haste/intimidate could potentially help with the win con of tokens/creatures if Vish fails what do you think?
That's the only one I question I agree with everything else you said.
With the recursion thing I feel it could be a necessity though if I'm running Token generators that are specifically creatures if I lose the big ones like Bloodline Keeper Flip/Grave Titan etc from board wipes then I have nothing to sac towards Vish. Tokens are gone forever but those creatures can keep coming back with GY play. The way I saw the recursion kinda stuff in here as well was I can sac creatures like Ashen Rider/Angel of Despair/Grave Titan for counters to Vish and keep bringing them back for their ETB effects. If I bury them as well with various means I can bring them back for free too with recursion cards like Debtors' Knell/Sheoldred, Whispering One etc so stuff like Buried Alive/Entomb/Beacon of Unrest that you run in your B/W aren't too bad. Sheoldred, Whispering One is one of the sorta constant recursion cards in here her sac ability won't really do much with Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. That's just my thought on it. Like I'm not disagreeing with you but yea I kinda screw myself over if I don't have some recursion because Vish won't have anything to bolster himself with. There's a lot of decent token generators but they're mainly creatures. If I get board wiped I lose the ability to give him anything to chow down on. I like the GY play because it's very befitting for the whole Sorin theme.
I'm listening to what you're saying btw but yea the recursion thing just sounds odd to remove especially with the only token generators in here being creatures. Can you explain what you mean?

Your side should include 3-4x Ashen Rider for the S&T matchup. I prefer Faerie Macabre or Tormod's Crypt over Relic. Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast should be considered. The 4CMC of Shatterstorm is hard to achieve. Smash to Smithereens or Destructive Revelry is better. Lastly, Blood Moon can very much be a hoser pending your meta.

Griselbrand is the #1 staple for Reanimator. After that what gets included is highly conditional on just how competitive your kitchen table games are. Assuming Legacy powered decks you would probably also want to consider:

Thanks! It's fun because you can get a turn 5-6 Ashen Rider, and another creature if you have a ferocious trigger! Is there anything you would change, or take out? I'm trying to figure out other cards that would be synergistic with the reanimation functions, or something that could deal with cards exiling my entire graveyard.

It is always wonderful to be able to whip an Ashen Rider. Given the mechanics of my deck I would have to cast it first for it to end up in the graveyard though.It would be much better suited for a Sultai Whip deck, where there are many more ways of getting it into the graveyard for whipping.
