Before I decided to abandon playing Standard to focus on EDH, I was working on an Abzan reanimation build that used Endless Obedience, Whip of Erebos, and most importantly, Rescue from the Underworld to bring back and trigger big creatures with strong ETB abilities. See Ashen Rider, Hornet Queen, and Siege Rhino. The rest of the build was filled with ramp and graveyard-filling spells. I didn't have the time to devote to testing, but you're more than welcome to take ideas from
Genesis26 Sorry for missing sideboard and information. Just added this deck while coming back late from work. Sideboard is now posted, and I'll update deck info soon. Pharika is here in one piece to provide a nice indestructible body and 1/1 deathtouch snakes on instant, I think I'll be able most of the time to turn her devotion on, plus she's an enchantment triggering Eidolon of Blossoms and Doomwake Giant. I found Whip of Erebos to be an incredibly effective tool in the current meta. In main it is mostly big life-gainer plus constellation trigger. After sideboard it can bring back Ashen Riders. Any control matchup is really having a hard time when I'm whipping Siege Rhino and swinging at them for 7 life at the same time faining same ammount myself.
It won't be worth anything for EDH- those colors already have Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Act of Authority, Ashen Rider, and white's infinite supply of other "Exile target __" cards. Sure, Utter End is good. But if it were going to see a spike in price due to EDH play, it would have happened already.
ADD: Gaea's Herald, Mana Crypt, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Sun Titan, Crucible of Worlds, Deadly Recluse, Dust to Dust, Fade into Antiquity,Crypt Incursion, Identity Crisis, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Harvester of Souls, Jarad's Orders, Soul of the Harvest, Diabolic Intent, Bojuka Bog, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Temple of Malady, Temple of Plenty, Temple of Silence, Razorverge Thicket
REMOVE: Centaur Healer, Altar of the Brood, Allosaurus Rider, Ashen Rider, Auramancer, Cartographer, Dowsing Shaman, Dungrove Elder, Karmic Guide, Lhurgoyf, Pheres-Band Tromper, Spellbane Centaur, Pheres-Band Warchief, Seton's Scout, Condemn, Berserk, Giant Growth, Crumble, Diabolic Tutor, Harmonize, Elfhame Palace
4x Cavern of Souls is a must in any tribal deck, and 4x Rishadan Port would help alongside Wasteland to keep your opponent off mana. Even though he's not a zombie, Dark Confidant helps fill your hand and fits easily in your curve. As nice as Dark Ritual is, it seems really out of place here. Should be removal like Disfigure and maybe a 1x Dismember. As bad as targeted removal is right now, Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek should be in here (4-5 total) to get rid of things you can't beat. Once you know the format, these could become Cabal Therapy to abuse Gravecrawler.
Decks or cards that you'll probably have issues with:
Miracles (Terminus at instant speed to shut down Gempalm or Shepherd, and Swords to Plowshares.)
Any deck that can reliably cast Umezawa's Jitte. (Any Stoneblade list, Death & Taxes). This is where your discard is necessary, otherwise you will get blown out by Jitte. Gravecrawler is nice, but many lists run Rest in Peace somewhere in the 75, and can totally shut him down. You could go really deep with Gate to Phyrexia, but you'd need to playtest that.
Punishing Fire. You'll need those Wastelands to kill all the Grove of the Burnwillows they'll play.
2x Leyline of the Void for Treasure Cruise, Dredge, Reanimator.
2-3x Extirpate or Surgical Extraction for Storm, Dredge, Reanimator, Oops! All Spells.
1x Grave Titan for the lulz against a Nic Fit deck.
1x Ashen Rider or Griselbrand or both against Sneak & Show style decks.
2x Perish against green creatures like Tarmogoyf and Elves.
Those were my initial thoughts.
Ashen Rider works on Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Emrakul has protection from colored spells, but the thing that's targeting Emrakul in this case is an ability, not a spell. Things like Utter End will not work, but Ashen Rider, Nekrataal or Suspension Field will.
Please link all cards in your question.
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn
Yes. Emrakul, the Aeons Torn may have protection from colored spells, but Ashen Rider's ability is what targets. Also, all cards chosen with Show and Tell are put onto the battlefield simultaneously. Abilities that trigger as a result of those permanents entering the battlefield will be put onto the stack the next time a player receives priority, so any of the new permanents would be a legal target for Ashen Rider's ability.
