Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver Discussion
1 week ago
I like the deck man. I am interested in playing something similar in pioneer. Not sure if I want to go Grixis for Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger because Ashiok is one of my favorite planeswalkers, or just Rakdos because it is my favorite guild.
Anyway, if this is something your interested in perfecting, I'd recommend Eliminate over Cast Down to allow for utility to hit planeswalkers as well. Because of your theme, you don't necessarily need to worry about big creatures attacking in since you can make them discard it anyway. Murderous Rider is another staple that you could use instead as a potential backup plan to beat face.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Ashiok, Nightmare Muse , but Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver can also be a powerful win condition for less mana. Granted, if they are not a creature deck it can hurt, but you still are exiling their deck AND hand with it. I would say it is worth playtesting.
Since you're blue I'd recommend some draw spells. I really like Chemister's Insight for this type of deck since you can discard a discard spell to its jumpstart if their hand is low, while refilling yours for more utility. There are plenty more to consider since it would be likely that you'd run out of a hand around the same time as your opponent without some sort of draw.

Hi. I love UB control archetype so I would like to give my 2 cents. So I'll hope that this helps/gives new ideas ^_^
I think your deck at the moment has unnecessary tap lands. Halimar Depths Vivid Marsh and Polluted Mire and Lonely Sandbar . I would recommend trying Mystic Sanctuary , Sunken Ruins , Field of Ruin , Fabled Passage or Castle Vantress . Karakas is also viable option even though it acts like colorless land in UB.
I also need to recommend Search for Azcanta Flip because it can win control mirrors almost by itself. Shark Typhoon and Omen of the Sea are my personal additions usually because both of them are 2 for 1 effects.
For sorcerys I have not been impressed with Yahenni's Expertise and I have played Shadows' Verdict and/or Dead of Winter instead of it. Also Bloodchief's Thirst and Baleful Mastery are cards that I can't stop recommending because they are just that good, the ability to get rid of an creature or planeswalker while being cheap removal if needed is just so good.
For creatures I will recommand Murderous Rider it is another hero's downfall with 2 for 1 thanks to adventure, I have never been impressed by Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir because he usually doesn't do enough for 5 mana. For planeswalkers if your meta has decks that have creatures Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is surprisingly effective and talking about Ashiok Ashiok, Nightmare Muse is a real game closer because both +1 and -3 are extremely good and an army of 2/3 will win the game at some point.
For instants I will just write recommendations because there are so many: Archmage's Charm just does everything you would want, Commence the Endgame uncounterable threath + card draw and is especially good mirror breaker, Cryptic Command it also does everything, Disallow the stiffle can save games sometimes (like countering planeswalker "ultimate"), Erebos's Intervention I personally like this card very much because it can buy so much time against aggro decks, Hieroglyphic Illumination works as early game can trip and mid/late game divination, Spell Snare on draw this is amazing and usually the best cards are 2-3 costed so this usually hits something important and last but not least Force of Negation because it is another force. I would recommend little bit more targeted removal because edict effects are worse against decks that play mana elfs or other low impact 1 drops.
I personally wouldn't play your artifact package but because I haven't played with artifact package I won't say anything about that because I don't know how good it is.
These are just my recommendations and these aren't absolutes. Here is also list if you would like to compare different building choices
I hope that you found this helpful ^_^

This is a super sweet and unique idea!
There are a couple of minor issues with your card design, however. The first being that it’s a bit complete.
When it dies, create a number of 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens with "Sacrifice this creature: Add ." equal The Last of the Eldrazis power
Create a number? Okay, I say 1,000,000,00,00,000 lol. You have to finish that statement.
Second, Last of the Eldrazi’s power is 0, unless it is on the battlefield. And because it has to die to make the tokens, you can never sacrifice them for mana.
This is true, even if you play another Last of the Eldrazi. This is because there is a specificity clause with abilities like these, such that they only trigger on the specific card they reference, not all cards of the same name. This is because you could theoretically control 2 Last of the Eldrazi. Then this would complicate “which does this count for?” The answer, to simplify things is neither.
To give a real world example, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver . If I play one on turn 3 and +2, and steal a creature, and you kill it, I cannot then play another Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver on turn 4 to -X for that creature the other Ashiok exiled.
I hope I explained this in a way that isn’t as complicated as they made it to be.

As for planeswalkers being too powerful and needing bans, that's not because they were planeswalkers. It's because they were too powerful. Sorceries get banned. Creatures get banned. I agree that the game is power creeping (I'm not going to get into why that is or isn't a good thing here), but it's not because of planeswalkers. Koth of the Hammer or Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver , as two examples, are no worse for the game than any other card, and I argue they help diversify it--not in any competitive sense, but if you want to pull together a Mountains matter or exile-theft deck, you have a solid center point that arguably couldn't be done with any other card type.
I'm not trying to come across as angry, but it seems to me like frustration with powercreep is pointing in the wrong direction here. I'm legitimately interested in why people don't like the "new stuff"--to me, it's natural innovation, with all the dangers and rewards that comes with, and Lessons and planeswalkers seem pretty safe overall to me.

Since while I may not advance 4x the loyalty counters, I can now pay 2 for each Planeswalker to copy for 4 times the abilities.

Tried to make the deck a little bit more consistent and with a couple more draw and planeswalker cards. In addition, the creatures added give a bit more staying power and other abilities instead of just strictly attacking, although that's still the main mode of winning. Also went a bit more in on +1/+1 counters as well.
-1 Changeling Sentinel -1 Moonglove Changeling -1 Valiant Changeling -1 Undead Augur -1 Venom Sliver -1 King of the Pride -1 Winding Constrictor -1 Neoform -1 Tatyova, Benthic Druid -1 Vastwood Surge -1 Bloodline Keeper Flip -1 Chromatic Lantern +1 Skyshroud Claim +1 Despark +1 Oath of Ajani +1 Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter +1 Kaya, Ghost Assassin +1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver +1 Teferi, Time Raveler +1 Crystalline Crawler +1 Tendershoot Dryad +1 Twilight Prophet +1 Sanctum Seeker +1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty

These ones made it into my blue/black mill deck. They were pretty useful.
This one would have made it if it wasn't so expensive at the time.
