No problem! Disk is an interesting thought, and would work... What's cool about Ashen Rider against Show and Tell is that it's an immediate ETB effect, and you get a 5/5 flying beater to seal the game with.

Searing Blaze is good against decks running creatures, sideboard worthy or mainboard as a 2 of in Legacy. Fetches do make it potent.

In any case, I love me some red!

aeonstoremyliver still in deck building mode so I have not been able to pilot this in real life yet, only some play testing on here. It has done ok so far. I originally wanted to make this creatureless but during play testing I've learned that Eidolon of the Great Revel is just a boss. The Exquisite Firecraft is just me being a little different but it is a great card (at least I think), I'd have another in if it were instant speed. As for adding any fetches, I honestly just don't have the budget to especially since the thinning is almost inconsequential but I do agree that the extra Grim Lavamancer fodder would be nice.. I shouldn't have much of a problem with that though. Shard Volley is the closest thing to Lightning Bolt since Lightning Bolt and gives me more upside than either Goblin Guide or Monastery Mentor. Barbarian Ring is definitely a possibility in here, will need to do some testing with it but can see the obvious advantage it provides. Keeping this mono red so splashing is justa no go for me, if need the Ashen Rider type effect I could maybe resort to Nevinyrral's Disk, I'd be losing the exile but it should still clear the board enough.. thoughts on that? Thanks for taking the time to add some input, I appreciate it :)

Oh, also, Searing Blaze is a great card and definitely worth taking a closer look at

Interesting you'd include Exquisite Firecraft as a onesie. Out of curiosity, how's that working? I'm curious as it looks bad on paper for Legacy...

I recommend Wooded Foothills and Arid Mesa as playsets. The minor deck thinning, shuffle, and Lavamancer fuel is nice. And if you ever wish to include Searing Blaze, you can trigger it on your opponent's turn. Barbarian Ring is also quite awesome. Add two Taiga or Stomping Ground main, for reasons I'll divulge later.

I would rather see Shard Volley be Goblin Guide or at the very least, Monastery Mentor. Hasty critters makes you better.

Splashing main gives you Destructive Revelry in the side, which allows you to deal with Leyline of Sanctity and deals damage. I'd play Revelry over Smash 2 Smithereens any day. Speaking of sideboard, Show and Tell variants are a rough matchup. Ashen Rider is a good answer. If you have any S&T in your meta, run 3x Riders in the side.

Haha! I'll be honest, I haven't played much legacy either. But I do know our biggest problem is in game 2-3, where people will side in graveyard hate. I'm not sure how to out it without going into another color, as cards like Tormod's Crypt and enchantments like Rest in Peace will ruin the deck. If you want to stay in black, your best bet (and maybe your only bet) would be to side Nevinyrral's Disk and/or Ratchet Bomb. Both which are slow.

Beyond that, you can side Tormod's Crypt (for reanimator/mirror match, Dredge) that hurt only the opponent, Torpor Orb to stop ETB effects (only stops Iona and painter), and maybe some creature to reanimate (like Terastodon and Ashen Rider).

Iona, Shield of Emeria, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Inkwell Leviathan to name a few. If you have instant speed reanimation then Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is a cool target(but probably not, this is legacy reanimator). Ashen Rider is pretty good, Akroma, Angel of Wrath. Tidespout Tyrant does well too.
