This deck aims to set up Ashling with a varied selection of ways to win, outright commander damage, her activated ability, pyrite spellbomb combo, and burn are all win conditions. Voltron is the main core, Blackblade Reforged , Tenza, Godo's Maul , and Hammer of Nazahn all allow commander damage to be an achievable win-con.

Draw is aided by Diviner's Wand , Infiltration Lens , Scroll Rack , Sensei's Divining Top , Tamiyo's Journal , Wheel of Fortune , and in a sense Ugin, the Ineffable and Karn, Scion of Urza .

As Ashling's activated effect damage is rather lacking when everyone has 40 hp, there are cards to improve the effectiveness of it, Repercussion , and damage doublers such as Gratuitous Violence as well as lifelink and deathtouch all allow her activated ability to be much more impactful. Cards like Smokebraider , Heartstone , Illusionist's Bracers make activations much more frequent and reliable. Another way we can improve her activated ability is we improve the ways we can put +1/+1 counters on her, Blade of the Bloodchief is amazing versus token strategies, Sword of Truth and Justice is another way to get more counters but requires you to deal combat damage with her to be effective, and Ring of Valkas is a bit slow but is guaranteed unlike the other options, both Opal Palace and Forge of Heroes allow you to put counters on her the turn she gets cast.

Artifacts are obviously another huge theme of the deck. Artifact recursion is achieved by cards like Goblin Welder , Scrap Trawler , Trash for Treasure , Buried Ruin and especially Pia's Revolution after you get a few damage doublers up, opponents will be wary of taking that damage. In this deck we have several cards that can reduce or 'cheat' out artifacts like, Ugin who gives a nice reduction of on all colorless spells, Saheeli's Directive which can easily be cast for = + by tapping equipment, Foundry Inspector and Jhoira's Familiar both reduce the costs by 1.

And finally, the pyrite spellbomb combo is explained best here -
