Ashes of the Abhorrent Discussion

9-lives on None

White has great 'prevention' cards. These prevent your opponent from doing anything. I'm coming from pioneer, and I'm sure there are a ton of other cards that aren't in pioneer that are like these.

I use these in my deck:

Eyed Abyss of Rainbow Irises

Pioneer* 9-lives

I love this design!!!

I really love the use of Ashes of the Abhorrent, but I think Ground Seal and Rest in Peace are much better unless you really need the life gain.

Take a look at mine

I like Ashes of the Abhorrent. Low CMC and I think its a powerful effect against decks with graveyard interaction. I would like to hear your thoughts.

I would argue that if graveyard decks are already a problem for you, you should consider running things like Ashes of the Abhorrent, Rest in Peace, or Grafdigger's Cage since those all fit into mono white.

Yes giving extra grave resources to those decks is a big drawback, but if they're already a part of your meta it's good to proactively slot cards that can handle them.

Platinum Emperion keeps your life total stable and Lich's Mirror can help keep you alive even if your life total hits 0. Copy Enchantment could be helpful as it's tutorable by zur.

In terms of cuts and what you want your deck to do, I would get rid of Ashes of the Abhorrent, Mirrormade, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Kaya's Ghostform, Ethereal Armor, and Preordain

TypicalTimmy I kNOw hOw the STack worKs, but it can be a little confusing when you sacrifice a Filigree Familiar to a Viscera Seer with Teysa Karlov and Ashes of the Abhorrent out, plus your opponent has an It That Betrays and has just Fact or Fiction'd in response for some reason... just wondering if you have any tricks for not forgetting or missing anything, just like Daveslab2022's dice trick (thanks, BTW, I'll keep my cards off my library now as well)
