Ashling, the Extinguisher Discussion

DrayDray on Not the Counters You'd Expect

Ashling, the Extinguisher is a solid card, might be worth a look.

I really like this deck you've made, it reminds me of one a friend used to play. I do have a few suggestions, though.Instead of Demonic Taskmaster, maybe try Master of the Feast. It's more powerful for the same converted cost and doesn't require other creatures on the field. I also noticed that you had two of the same Legendary Creature, which isn't generally allowed. Maybe replace Toshiro Umezawa with Erebos, God of the Dead or Ashling, the Extinguisher. Both have their perks for a deck like the one you're playing.

How about creatures that have "deals combat damage" effects. Like Ashling, the Extinguisher or "gets blocked" effects like Alley Grifters. Just trying to brainstorm here. Thornbite Staff might be useful too.

VoidCaster113 on Which commander would you run?

I feel like both Ob Nixilis, Unshackled and Erebos, God of the Dead are both more control-ish. Maralen of the Mornsong seems more political in a group-hug sorta way, while I think Ashling, the Extinguisher can be political by letting an opponent choose a creature, making her unblockable, and forcing them to sac their threat/annoying creature.

Eiti3 on Which commander would you run?

I agree. Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief appears to be the best political commander. Erebos, God of the Dead is a good second. Ashling, the Extinguisher decent third.

Greel, Mind Raker if you want to be the politician nobody likes.

Also worth noting that you definitely can't use blue mana in a deck with Ashling, the Extinguisher as the commander.

I'd remove/replace
(-) Wood Elves ----> Farhaven Elf
(-) Vulturous Zombie
(-) Titania, Protector of Argoth
(-) Shadow Alley Denizen
(-) Satyr Wayfinder
(-) Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (too ugly)
(-) Glissa, the Traitor (if you use her just for first strike + deathtouch she isn't all that useful...)
(-) Doomgape (too ugly)
(-) Creakwood Liege (useful, but ugly)
(-) Champion of Stray Souls
(-) Acidic Slime
(-) Polluted Mire ----> Barren Moor
(-) Slippery Karst ----> Tranquil Thicket
(-) Aspect of Gorgon
(-) Dread Summons (could backfire pretty hard against another reanimator decks)
(-) Vampire's Bite ----> Deadly Allure
(-) Ashling, the Extinguisher

LANDS:
(+) Rogue's Passage - always useful, specially if you manage to ult Vraska

PLANESWALKERS:
Maybe add a Garruk?

CREATURES:
(+++) Pawn of Ulamog - helps building up experience faster (plus he is a vampire)
(+) Wasteland Viper - doubles as instant spell, thanks to bloodrush
Nemesis of Mortals - maybe?
(+) Disciple of Bolas - pretty self-explanatory. Even though it's not that thematic, the artwork makes up for it.
(+) Bloodgift Demon - kinda thematic since he gives blood (plus increasing draw)
Moriok Replica - non-thematic, recursive creature-based draw alternative
(+++) Sidisi, Undead Vizier - Nagas are part-snake! Sac to tutor is pretty good with Meren.
(++) Caustic Caterpillar - is cute and easily reusable to deal with pesky enchantments/artifacts
Basal Sliver - mana dork
Verdant Eidolon - mana dork (plus great artwork, but kinda costy)
(+) Burnished Hart - ramp
Dawntreader Elk - ramp
Renowned Weaver - early game
Centaur's Herald - early game
(+++) Merciless Executioner or Fleshbag Marauder (eew) help out specially if you sac them and bring them back with Meren. (works as Barter in Blood, but with no drawback for you). Also does wonders in conjunction with Butcher of Malakir.
Agent of Erebos - might be necessary when dealing with other reanimator decks (sideboard?)
Ravaging Riftwurm - it dies in 2 turns, but Meren can easily bring him back.
(+++) Rootrunner - it's a win condition. It can easily lock someone into drawing the same land over and over.
(+++) Bloodflow Connoisseur / Bloodthrone Vampire / Vampire Aristocrat in opposition to
Blood Bairn can sacrifice themselves.
Flesh Carver - looks like a vampire and grows up pretty fast, even though you have to pay to feed him. Intimidate is a plus.
Soldevi Adnate - poetic and could make itself useful in the mid-game.
Viscera Seer - classic
(+) Hooded Hydra - HAIL HYDRA! Gives you pet snakes
(+) Hornet Queen / Hornet Nest - flying deathtouch tokens are lovely
Avenger of Zendikar - lots of tokens.
(++) Vampire Hexmage - Kills planeswalkers among other stuff
(++) Archetype of Endurance - one of the cheapest defenses you can get in a deck.
Fierce Empath - tutor

ENCHANTMENTS:
Ulvenwald Mysteries - acts as a draw engine and gives you some vampire food in exchange. The art could also be interpreted as vampire attack :P.
Vampiric Rites - sac outlet and draw engine
Seed the Land - even though it also gives tokens to your enemies too, it should be ok.
Bonds of Mortality - removes hexproof and indestructible
Zendikar Resurgent - doubles your mana

INSTANTS:
Cobra Trap - for the trap trigger is quite good, but it's a terrible card otherwise.
Arachnogenesis - not thematic, but it's a good EDH card.

SORCERIES:
Cultivate / Kodama's Reach - a must
Reign of the Pit has fantastic artwork.
(+) Triumph of the Hordes - win condition (plus flavor since it's poison)
Traverse the Ulvenwald - tutor
Diabolic Tutor - tutor
Increasing Ambition - tutor
Barter in Blood - removal
Crux of Fate - removal
Deadly Tempest - removal

ARTIFACTS:
Orochi Hatchery - I don't believe it should be necessary on this deck, but it's an option...
Basilisk Collar - Basilisks are a Gorgon's best friend.
Mortarpod - or, as I like to call it: deathtouch token-based removal cannon.
(+)Ring of Xathrid - Regenerate and buff a creature (Meren deserves a ring!)
Swiftfoot Boots - for the hexproof (Meren has a giant target on her back)
