Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver Discussion

Penthoplayer on Pirates of the Coast: Plunder Dat Booty

1 week ago

Snakerush, look at that + ability. Planeswalkers are a bit more advanced of a concept in the first place, and for a new player, Tibalt would leave a bad taste for them. It's + ability is actively hurting yourself. I'd let him play without Planeswalkers first, then eventually introduce them with Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. It's fairly simple to understand compared to a lot of others, it's self-synergistic, it's not too far off-theme, the colors are already there, and it's not too budget-destroying.

Logics on Esper Dredge Reanimator

1 week ago

@Heretic_Dragoon - Collective Brutality is an absolute must for the deck. Not only does it let me get rid of unwanted cards in my hand (dredgers or reanimation targets) but it just does so much in so many match-ups. It ends up basically being a 3 for 1 because it puts the important cards in the bin for me.

The problem with going all in on Craterhoof Behemoth, is that it won't always be enough. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Iona, Shield of Emeria can both win games on the spot, just like Craterhoof. I might consider moving Iona over, but Elesh Norn at her worst is a mini Craterhoof.

In light of this, I feel like I need to cut Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver from the sideboard. She's there for midrange and control match-ups. Control is fair, and I think I'm advantaged in midrange matches, making her pretty bad overall.

I like to run Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Leyline of the Void since people tend to shufdle theyre graveyards back in

There's Grimoire of the Dead, and Rise of the Dark Realms (which you don't really want) but besides that, I'm not sure about anything else. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver also works, but you don't really want to put it in when it's blue

I know I posted semi-recently, but I have a new list and want to start some more trades now that I am active again.

I am looking to get cards for a Progenitus Superfriends Deck. I have a bunch of random stuff to offer and am more interested in some cards listed below than others (i.e. I will prioritize Atraxa, certain walkers, and certain lands). I know in some cases it will be hard to make trades but it is worth a shot.

Cards wanted for Superfriends:
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Chandra, Flamecaller (SDCC Version)
Gideon, Champion of Justice
Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Jace, Architect of Thought
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets (SDCC Version preferred)
Kaya, Ghost Assassin
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
Nissa, Vital Force
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar (SDCC version)
Ob Nixilis Reignited
Vraska the Unseen
Venser, the Sojourner

The Chain Veil
Oath of Ajani
Deploy the Gatewatch
Merciless Eviction
End Hostilitiesfoil icon

1 of Each Amonkhet full art foil
Arid Mesa
Flooded Strand
Overgrown Tomb

Cards of Note:
Force of Will
Elvish Piper
Loxodon Warhammer Russian
Serum Visions (Other version, not sure how to code)
Kitchen Finks
Sarkhan the Mad
Fauna Shaman
Scion of the Ur-Dragon
Other stuff, some unlisted

For SB suggestions:

-1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, +1 Surgical Extraction

This is not necessarily needed, but I do think that the Ashiok needs to go.

_1 Fatal Push, -1 Leyline of Sanctity, +2 Runed Halo

Runed Halo is one of the most underplayed Modern cards IMO.

Hope this helps!

Personally I like Liliana of the Dark Realms. She gives me ramp, shuffle effect and sometimes removal if needed. Liliana Vess is also a great tutor. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is another powerful one that allow top deck manipulation and card selection. I'm also playing Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. I still want to say that Clever Impersonator is worth it. Copying things like Propaganda or the best creature on the field is always nice. He can even copy planeswalkers. Copy Karn Liberated and exile the original :P

FrostySentinel on Azorious/Dimir Deck Help

sylvannosThanks a bunch. I didn't really think something like an Esper mill would work very well, but that seems pretty cool. I already had Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver in mind when I was considering mill and I was able to get three Breaking/Entering a little while ago for my deck as well. I've been thinking about adding Dream Salvage for card acquisition and Dream Twist as some cheap mill. For me, Fog Bank will always be a must in almos any blue deck. Then maybe I could add in some rootborn defences along with Holy Day. I've also got a Traumatize and I'm going to try to get maybe one more since multiple uses aren't too affective.

IcbrgrFor deck control, would Divination be good or are there better alternatives? I've always kinda seen it as a staple for Blue decks. With Azors elecutors and Luminarch Ascension I could definitly use Fog Bank which is definitly one of my staples. I'll definitly try to get Serum Visions, Drift of Phantasms, and Omenspeaker. I don't think I'll go fo Wall of Omens though since I'd have more than enough defenders. I might add it to my side deck though. I can also see how Ghostly Prison would work well since I wouldn't be attacking all that much too. As for my budget, it's not very high. I don't have a job yet, but I'm going to be getting one over the Summer and I don't have too much experience with budgeting money yet. I think that I'll just take a small amount from each paycheck or something for my magic expenses.
