(Dan is a regular reader and a heavy contributor to the various projects I throw up my hands in despair and dump on you guys. When I threw out the call for some guest content, Dan was very quick to oblige with this piece; I was intrigued by it because I can honestly say it ends up so far away from my EDH comfort zone that I almost need a translator to read it, so I decided to give him a shot.
I hope you enjoy.
It was a dark and stormy night…
Well, I simply have to make time.

That’s about it, folks. It’s not the best deck ever, but it is powerful. If you like Red, aggressive play, or just want something different while still giving yourself a chance to win, hopefully this gives you a bit of inspiration. When everyone throws their generals down, Ashling will never cause your opponents to groan the way Sharuum, Arcum, or Zur might. In fact, I’ve been told the deck is fun to play against, and whenever I’ve lent it out, my friends have all had fun piloting it. There’s probably some “tech” I’m missing, so shout outs in the comments would be appreciated. I don’t use or Facebook, Twitter, so if you want to reach me with questions, comments, or critiques, e-mail me here. (If possible, put something like “Magic” in the subject)
