Ashen Rider is only worth 1-2 USD?

Or did I misunderstand you description?

The discard Pharaoh tricks and discarding dredgers with Unmask was new to me, so thanks for this guide! But I disagree on some points:

According to my calculation the likelihood of having at least one dredge card in the 7 card starting hand is

for 13 dredgers in deck: 1-(60-13)!(60-7)!/(60!(60-13-7)!)= 83,7%

for 14 dredgers in deck: 1-(60-14)!(60-7)!/(60!(60-14-7)!)= 86,1%

for 15 dredgers in deck: 1-(60-15)!(60-7)!/(60!(60-15-7)!)= 88,2%

So maybe you can get away with running only 13 dredgers ??

Also I think that Balustrade Spy (or Whirlpool Drake) is as good or better than Ashen Rider in almost all situations:

-fair blue matchups: winning anyway without Dread Return

-Stompy: if they have Trinisphere, no dread return anyway; if they dont have it and aggro us spy wins the game

-dark depths: spy = win

-show and tell: put spy into play; if we have Progenitus/Worldspine Wurm/... in deck we win. If Whirlpool Drake is used, those "shuffle back" cards are not needed, so no slot gets used up by it. If they put Progenitus into play, Ashen Rider doesn't kill it.

-Elephant Grass: Lotleth Giant doesn't care, spy wins

-Glacial Chasm: Ashen Rider is better unless the wincon is Thassa's Oracle

In all of these cases Balustrade Spy wins on the spot, not giving your opponent more turns to draw cards. Only drawback is you have to put a finisher like Lotleth Giant/Thassa's Oracle/Flame-Kin Zealot/... into your deck for the immediate kill, but without that you still get lots of Narcomoebas, zombies, etc and don't lose the game next turn as long as Progenitus is in deck or Golgari Thug is reanimated and sacced, so still enough time to attack with all the zombies.

Kaioken88 Thanks for the inquiry! I believe that Sheoldred, Whispering One is a power house in Karador, to the fact that she will reanimate for free and combos extremely well with Karmic Guide. The reason why Karmic Guide and Phyrexian Delver are so crucial in this deck is because you get to "cheat" in creatures for less life, cost, etc. If for example you play Buried Alive, to target Karmic Guide, Sheoldred, Whispering One, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, if you have any reanimate in hand ex. Reanimate, you would target the Karmic Guide taking 5 life but bringing in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Sheoldred, Whispering One, not paying the echo cost and letting it hit the graveyard to then bring it back with shoeldred or undying with Mikaues, thus being able to target everything in your graveyard for a lot cheaper and quicker. Sheoldred, Whispering One adds Immediate pressure to the board, especially below turn 4.

As to casting combos at 14 mana, that almost never happens because Karador loves to cheat creatures, with Karmic Guide, Victimize, Unburial Rites, Reanimate, Dread Return, Phyrexian Delver, etc. Honestly this deck can take the win without ever casting your commander.

Protean Hulk is definitely a fit for a more competitive game, so feel free to add it. As for land destruction, your best option would be adding Terastodon and just pinging the lands. If you have an objective and want recurring abilities, Altar of Dementia then continuing to reanimate through mikaues, the unhallowed or Karador, Ghost Chieftain, or any other reanimate spell would be ideal. And that works for any card that you would like to put on Lockdown. Yosei, the Morning Star has the ability to gridlock the entire board and I have done it multiple times. Woodfall Primus, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Archon of Justice, and Ashen Rider can all have the same devastating effect of combo-ing off.

What is so destructive about Karador is that there is no real threat that your opponent can play unless they exile your graveyard.

Cards i really like for the deck are Deadeye Navigator, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Rune-Scarred Demon, Soul Herder, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. A lot of cards i do like but didnt put in top 5 cause i think its like your preference on fav ETB triggers you wanna add.

Cards in the maybeboard i dont think should go in are, Baleful Strix, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Render Silent, Disinformation Campaign and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Also Wishclaw Talisman will only be really good if you have repeatable ways to flicker it probably at instant speed, and Thassa's Oracle you will only want if youre going for a combo finish with her.
