Ashling, the Extinguisher Discussion


1 week ago

@Firebones675 As this deck is already special, I don't want it to be hated because of the infinite combo... which I do run in other decks. Thanks for your trample suggestion ! That added a solid Archetype of Aggression.

@swisigah Odric is a good suggestion... he was on the chopping block for a while. I didn't end up using him becuase I did not feel like he did enough. I already have first strike and deathtouch because of my commander, so really he would only buff flying and vigilance... which are great, but I feel there are not ENOUGH of those effects to fill a card slot to exploit them.

@Rzepkanut I like Ashling, the Extinguisher and Legion Loyalist. Because my field will be teaming with abilities... I rather swing with my army than just Master of Cruelties. I like Silent Specter but i feel Okiba-Gang Shinobi is better as it is much easier to cast.

Thanks for the help and great suggestions!!

Master of Cruelties, Ashling, the Extinguisher, Silent Specter, Legion Loyalist, Dictate of Heliod

Fun deck...i think using non legends for commanders makes for more variety in the format. I think with a few exceptions they could all be allowed. Cheers.

Haha I'm glad to know I have a previous life twin Argeaux.

I came up with a list of potential commanders organized by the Multiplayer Tier List

Tier 2

Thada Adel, Acquisitor - Can steal artifacts which is nice (Sol ring!). Is mono blue so I have a lot of cards for it. Seems cool.

The Mimeoplasm - One of the first decks I tried to make but failed due to the mana base. I am willing to make this again with a cheaper (slower) mana base. Can be fun because he changes depending on who I am up against

Tier 3

Thassa, God of the Sea - The second deck I tried to make but failed because it sucked. I LOVE Thassa, but I feel there is no real direction for this deck and there is no chance in hell of it ever winning anything. Mono blue aggro anyone? lol

Xenagos, God of Revels - Ramp into fattiest and beat face. Simple linear strategy, has artifact enchantment and creature hate.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury - Seems fun because I can grab different stuff depending on who I'm up against. Mono black is also my favorite in EDH

Tier 4

Ashling, the Extinguisher - Again, I love mono black. Add some unblockable and possibly some equipments and watch hell unleash

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei - Mono black, what a surprise. Opponents love drawing, so we should make them discard! On the fence about this one because he's useless if the opponent has no cards in hand

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni - I love the artwork and graveyard plunging seems fun!

Rosheen Meanderer - Green ramp with X red damage. Simple yet fun

Thoughts on this list?

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.

Tjone781 on Xun Yu? I need help!

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.
