Blade of Selves Discussion

Just to be clear since I didn't see it explicitly stated somewhere, Abilities are able to trigger when a player does not have priority or is not about to receive priority. The trigger just waits until a player would receive and goes on the stack after SBA are checked but before the player actually does receive priority.
Once a trigger condition has been met it will go on the stack, even if the permanent it was on leaves the battlefield before it goes on the stack. This is why Blade of Selves will give you triggers off of legendary creatures. It is also why if you somehow have two Tamiyo's Journal on the battlefield before the start of your upkeep but after the last time priority is received before that point you will get both triggers. Phasing is the only way I can think of to do this.

But ETB triggers work, despite the Legendary rule (e.g., in this old thread on the interaction of Blade of Selves with various Commanders). So why not 'at the beginning of your upkeep' triggers?
Ok, that makes sense. Thanks much!

Godo, Bandit Warlord can fetch your Blade of Selves, then if you equip it to him an attack, copies of him will be put into play (all but one will removed by the legend rule), but you'll still get to search for equipment for each copy that was made.
Also, I'm copying this verbatim from a post I made in someone else's Saskia deck:
It's Saskia, so I must suggest the following:
These cards combo so well with Saskia it's not even funny. With 2 of them on the field, Saskia attacking player A, with player B as the chosen target, will end up dealing 48 damage to player B if she's unblocked.
3 combat damage doubled twice to 12 combat damage, triggers 12 damage to player B, doubled twice to 48. GG.
I've got a token deck with Saskia in it (she's not the general), and I made sure I at least had 2 of these doublers in (Gisela and the Quest, I didn't want the symmetric ones). Check it out if you like, it's in my profile.

Snake Basket can make a lot of tokens
Beast of Burden can get huge.

Thanks, Thanatos! I didn't think there would be a card exactly like Blade of Selves, but I was looking for something that would have a similar effect, and you provided me with just what I needed.

It is also worth noting that Blade of Selves copying your commander, will cause you to legend rule the copies meaning they won't hit anyway. If you want to take out more than one person at a time, you'd be better off using extra turn or extra combat strategies, although those require blue or red generally. Examples include Time Warp and Aggravated Assault. If you are really set on blade of selves though, there is Mirror Gallery but the copies still will not do commander damage as that is an intrinsic ability of your commander. (basically only the card that can go to your command zone can do commander damage). Barring all that you will simply have to wait through the turn cycle, in which case its best to make sure your commander is well protected from removal.
