Those are awesome suggestions! I really like Wojek Embermage. Cosmotronic Wave I'm not sure about. The second clause with stopping blockers is good but almost all my creatures won't be swinging during combat.
You had an excellent point with Silverclad Ferocidons and Ghyrson Starn, Kelermorph. That interaction occurred to me with other cards like Pyrohemia and Yamabushi's Storm or even lands like Shivan Reef.
Regarding Cowardice, I like the idea of being able to protect from board wipes or just targeted removal.. but that could certainly backfire depending on how many targeted spells or abelites my opponents have..

Dismiss into Dream kills indestructible however. I'd put it into more decks if I had more copies of it. Cowardice however, could be dropped. It a great chaos card but it hurts you, especially because you can't equip stuff.
I also thought about suggesting you cut Staff of Nin but I don't feel as comfortable suggesting cuts. I'm weird that way.

add Pyrohemia, bet you won't. :P
if you're needing stuff to cut: Staff of Nin seems kind of underwhelming - it basically does what Prodigal Pyromancer does, but with some really far too late card draw coming in. You already have plenty of creatures that can ping targets, you won't even miss it.
Dismiss into Dream is so expensive. If you're looking for 7 mana cost creature removal, may I suggest good ole Cyclonic Rift instead? Really does a lot more than Dismiss into Dream, even with the enchantment's synergy here.

Consider a few creatures like Dungrove Elder, Centaur Vinecrasher, Awakened Amalgam, Beanstalk Giant, as well as perhaps some more spells to take better advantage of all the mana you should be able to generate.

Book of Rass isn't bad per se, and it's a very solid option for Old School EDH, but I think it's outclassed by a number of even mediocre cards. For example, you'd have to and 4 life for the book to outperform The Immortal Sun or even Staff of Nin on a given turn, and neither of those costs are a pittance. And what about next turn? The Book's one real advantage is being able to draw multiple cards per turn, but I feel it's just too mana-intensive to meaningfully outperform other big artifacts like Mind's Eye or Loreseeker's Stone.

Hi, Cool deck!
I am not sure about Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye and Warmonger's Chariot. For the staff a simple Harmonize can be better. I would put an MDFC e.g. Ondu Inversion Flip instead Warmonger's Chariot It doubles as a board wipe and a land.

I really like the build. There's quite a few cards I can think of that might be nice in here. Basilisk Collar is cheap alternative to Loxodon Warhammer, Blasphemous Act and Toralf, God of Fury Flip have very interesting reactions with Repercussion and Chandra's Incinerator goes infinite with it, Heartstone decreases the cost of Ashlings ability which can really boost her once it's mixed with mana doublers, Leyline Tyrant would let you hold up mana for Ashling on opponents turns and stockpile it for later use, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems like a nice choice given your land count and the presence of Vesuva and Thespian's Stage, Walking Atlas, Sword of the Animist and Ghirapur Orrery might help with ramping up for big plays, Stigma Lasher is a bit niche but if you can target it with Chandra's Ignition Lifegain decks are done for the rest of the game. Smoke and Price of Glory are nice stax pieces that shouldn't impact you too heavily given your low creature and instant count. Any one of Mogg Maniac, Brash Taunter and Stuffy Doll should all fit nicely given Ashlings explosive potential. Arcbond is a near guaranteed win against creature heavy decks. The Immortal Sun is a nearly strictly better Staff of Nin. Scrap Mastery might be a nice recovery from late game artifact wipes, or intense mill strategies. Sanctuary Blade is just as good as any of the swords at protecting Ashling and Hammer of Nazahn is nearly essential in such an equipment heavy deck, The Ozolith would help recover if Ashling gets popped before you can blow her up yourself. Harsh Mentor and Spellshock can keep infinite combos out of reach of those pesky combo players. Brass's Bounty and Reiterate can get you to infinite treasures/mana with enough lands in play and of course Ruby Medallion fits in nearly every red deck.
