Creature — Human Druid
Whenever Avenging Druid deals damage to an opponent, you may reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a land card. Put that card into play and put all other cards revealed this way into your graveyard.

Avenging Druid Discussion

I was actually just thinking about her the other night because I'm getting the Secret Lair that she will be in. I think the best route to make use of her is things that trigger on damage. Some of those legends are a good start but if you don't mind infect it would be great with her. Lifelink, double strike, and trample are all "nicer" keywords that people get less upset by. True Conviction is high on the CMC but potentially every bit as devastating as Triumph of the Hordes.
Some good cards with on damage triggers Charnelhoard Wurm, Stigma Lasher, Soltari Visionary, Phantom Nishoba, Order of Yawgmoth, and Hypnotic Specter. These triggers are on damage so with Saskia in play they go off twice.
Angel of Deliverance is a maybe. I don't like the cost or the hoop but the effect is strong...
Otherwise I like the Sunforger plan. A lot of combat tricks can be had here. Though Sunforger is usually only a piece of a deck and not the only thing going on in it.

As for Oath of Druids, it's a rather weak card for this specific deck, but a great card for others. This deck is all about creatures, even the noncreature spells are trying to bring in creatures, so most games you won't mill much, or get Oath's trigger, while everyone else will. Even Sidisi herself brings in another creature alongside her. I'd rather have Cephalid Vandal or something, maybe Avenging Druid.

I'm running a similar deck and have a few suggestions of cards that work really well in that deck:
Benefit from having many creatures - Ashnod's Altar - Nullmage Shepherd - Odric, Master Tactician - Hour of Reckoning - Nissa's Expedition - Appeal / Authority - Glare of Subdual (very powerful) - Eldrazi Monument (I know, puts your creatures over 2 power. But if you're flying and indestructible, who cares about details like that) - Cathars' Crusade (same luxury problem as Eldrazi Monument, and same solution)
Generic goodstuff - Path of Ancestry (how are you surviving with so little land in the first place?) - Krosan Verge (if you put in the big dollar land cards, might as well fetch them. plus, it ramps too!)

Nah, Avenging Druid doesn't have any evasion. My opponents will just block and kill him.

True Conviction turns an unblocked Saskia by herself into a 24 life swing each combat.

commander rules remain the same whether 1v1 or multiplayer. http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Commander_(format) is the best place for rules reference that i know. there are a number of cards that do something when they deal damage to a player which with saskia happens twice Charnelhoard Wurm, Hypnotic Specter, Abyssal Specter, Avenging Druid, Barbed Shocker, Shocker, Mana Skimmer, Nafs Asp, Odylic Wraith, Order of Yawgmoth, Soltari Visionary, Stigma Lasher, there are also some infect related cards but i dont know them since i dont like infect. also if you are interested in infinite combat turns Aggravated Assault and Hellkite Charger with Bear Umbra or Savage Ventmaw. not all the listed cards are necessarily what you want but all options are worth thinking about.

Absolutely LOVE the list you've got going on here!!! This is pretty much the types of cards i try to include at least 1-4 of in every (commander) deck i build....sadly i have less than a dozen of the cards you've listed in my current 8 decks, even though i've probably owned or played with 60% of them.
I primarily play casual commander and have for the last yr and a half, though i've played a lot of different variants on and off since i 1st started back in the era of Legends. As an on again off again player idk what's been spotlighted and what's slipped under the radar on various years as i wasn't paying attention to the radar.
I do have a few that aren't listed here, though with a broken radar idk if they qualify for this list but anyways;
Jinxed Choker - Telepathy - Ageless Entity - Kaboom! - Spiraling Embers - Jushi Apprentice - Ebony Owl Netsuke - Otherworld Atlas - Consuming Vapors - Creeping Renaissance - Gate to the AEther - Wild Evocation - Hunting Grounds - Root Greevil - Pulse of the Tangle - Avenging Druid - Mindshrieker - Gnaw to the Bone - Read the Runes - Trade Routes - and one of my favorite pieces of jank Temporal Aperture !!
I'm sure a few of these won't make the list, and i imagine a few might...and i apologize for the lil' wall o' text.
