Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver Discussion

Hate to break it to you, but while these guys are duds in modern, a few of them see play in commander. Xenagos, the Reveler and Ral Zarek both have a place in certain decks, while Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver sees play in many casual mill/spelljack decks.

Or maybe Oust? I love Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, but it's really dependent on what your opponent plays, as well.

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.

As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.

And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.

And as for three colors and colorless: Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Rings of Brighthearth, Contagion Engine, and maybe even Throne of Geth.

Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.

I think you need some Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver in this Boat loud of crap! up vote! I really like, even though it looks so annoying

@eulogy: Good shout, split second is probably more valuable than Phyrexian mana against the types of decks I would want to use Extirpate and Surgical Extraction against.

@GeminiSpartanX: Oops, I thought I had a Swamp in there somewhere already. I agree, 5 colourless sources is a bit excessive, so I made the changes you suggested. Profane Memento is definitely unnecessary with all the other anti-aggro tech, not sure what I was thinking there. I hadn't seen Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver before (been on a ~4 year break from MTG) but I like it. I put 1 copy in the sideboard. Thanks for the suggestions.

If you don't want your list to absolutely fold to Blood Moon, I'd add a basic Swamp. Having 5 colorless lands is also a little greedy for a deck that needs 2 colored sources on turn 2 to function properly. I'd -1 Darkslick Shores and -1 Ghost Quarter for +1 Flooded Strand (more crab synergy) and +1 Swamp. Without a basic swamp in the list, running Marsh Flats is strictly worse than a Flooded Strand or any other blue fetch since flats can only get a Watery Grave. 4 Profane Memento seems like overkill when you're already running 3 Crypt Incursions in your 75. Normally resolving 1 incursion against agro is enough for me to live until I find the final few mill spells. Maybe replacing one with the 4th push and a counterspell for control/combo decks would be better? I also find that a SB Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver does work against creature-light control/combo decks if you're interested in that route. Looks like a solid list though! +1 from me!
