I think you're missing out on one of (If not the) best reanimation targets in Standard: Ashen Rider . He might seem like he's not worth it as only a 5/5, but that exile can really swing the tide of a game. Particularly upon death.
Also, I might look into some Grisly Salvage .
In reanimation, you almost always want ramp as a back-up strategy. If they take out your graveyard plan (or you draw poorly), you could often need to hardcast your threats. Sylvan Caryatid , Peregrination , and Elvish Mystic are some of the better options in Standard right now.
I feel you TheLameSauce , my problem with Sylvan Caryatid is that it has no real advantage as compared to Satyr Wayfinder which is only conditional to this deck or others like it. It may make a good sideboard replacement for Returned Centaur but he's also a separate win con. himself. However the other notes you made are truly helpful and ill keep those in mind such as Pithing Needle which in itself would protect me from all threats mentioned. Thanks for your generous opinion. Anything else that could help in terms of bombs? Ive been looking at Ashen Rider in replacement for Nessian Demolok
I'm definitely wishing that Deadeye Navigator was still standard. You'd be bouncing Ashen Rider forever and ever. I'm also liking the use of Springleaf Drum but you might need a way to get more creatures out. Especially creatures that don't do anything. Like tokens or something. Tapping creatures like High Priest of Penance is putting you at a disadvantage when it comes to your opponent's combat phase, but for a WB, you do get a whole lot.And more Hero's Downfall I know it's an expensive card, but you are destroying things for a reason, yeah? +1 for sure!
Ashen Rider ...
5/5... meh... flying... okay... etb exile a permanent... ooh... when it dies exile a permanent... OOH...
CMC OF EIGHT, WITH TWO BLACK AND TWO WHITE...
If you keep your rares, take the money cards. If you draft them at the end (which i like more), take the better card for draft. I was in a draft, VERY early triple theros, back when people thought Master of Waves was a junk rare and the best god was purphoros, and my first pack contained a foil Bow of Nylea and a Reaper of the Wilds . I took the reaper, god passed another... and an Ashen Rider ... and a Medomai the Ageless , and heaps of big stuff. Basically my deck was 4 colour midrange, and it didn't lose a match, as the format was so slow. I was tempted to take the bow because it looked shiny, but decided against it for reaper and took the bow as 1st pick. (the rares were absolute junk, with no masters, gods, planes walkers or anything, the best card in retrospect was a Sylvan Caryatid .
