Ashen Rider Discussion

dlamars on Ayli, Lifegain + Pillowfort

Hey there, I've been tinkering with a Ayli list myself - Ayli reflects, Boon or Wound?. I have found the deck to be pretty consistent but easily disrupted. That said here are some of my favorite cards:

Wall of Blood - usually this is my wincon with Vizkopa Guildmage and Ayli. It also goes great with Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption. People never see it coming either.

Your land count could be higher too, I find 34 fine but I do search for Land Tax some games to make it manageable. 35 or so is my preference and I think cutting a few of your 6+ costing cards like Ashen Rider, Emeria Shepherd etc to make room is the best idea. Hope this helps some!

Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair are both great removal, but you have plenty already and they are your highest CMC. I'd consider sideboarding one or both of them if you want to make any replacements.

Fun fact! My third or fourth booster, had a foil thoughtseize!!! Shop owner, along with some other douches, told me it was worthless (cause you lose life...) and convinced me to trade it for an Ashen Rider i think. :s

Entomb, Sun Titan, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Vigor Mortis, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Birthing Pod, Avenger of Zendikar, Craterhoof Behemoth, Hella mana dorks

I saw your post and your budget do I do apologize for breaking it, but I think these cards will fit your theme. Kasual karador likes to abuse etb effects for cheap and get fatties out through the graveyard. This means you need a decent reanimation package. I hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions

What deck are you on in legacy? Against Show and Tell, Ashen Rider can handle whatever they throw down. For Reanimator decks or other cheat-into-play decks, Blazing Archon does the trick. For Lands, Maze of Ith or Glacial Chasm.

I'm concerned that cards like Gifted Aetherborn, Night Market Lookout, Underworld Coinsmith and Vizkopa Confessor aren't going to do the work you want them to do. Playing life gain can be slow and grindy and I believe you'd benefit greatly from cards like Ashen Rider,Fumigate and Merciless Eviction. They're all great ways of solidifying your board state and keeping combat damage based decks at base.

how about less things to reanimate and more things that make sure you stay alive long enough to reanimate them? you have access to black, red, and white, so play the best removal spells in those colors. Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile. Lightning Axe can be both removal and a way to discard your combo pieces. If ur going for big, bomby reanimations, get rid of the cards that don't win the game for you when you reanimate them, ie Woodfall Primus, Ashen Rider, Siege Rhino. I also think you have too many reanimation spells. I'm not sure which ones you'd consider to be the best for what ur trying to do, but i'd probably keep Unburial Rites for sure. I made a Reanimator deck built around Flayer of the Hatebound and Footsteps of the Goryo called Grixis Flayer Reanimator, if you want to look at that.

Have you considered running an Eldrazi Displacer? For just three mana, you can run some pretty degenerate exile shenanigans with your Ashen Rider. The same trick also works with Fiend Hunter, but it will exile the other creature permanently! The flicker synergy is also pretty high with Grave Titan, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Karmic Guide, and all of your other ETB trigger creatures. It can also consistently trigger the Revolt effect of Hidden Stockpile.
