Seems an odd partner pairing to me. Tymna of course is the way to go for naus + angels grace, but ludevic isn't normally seen competitively. Mad farm is the mardu naus deck using Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and bad farm is the abzan version with Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and they both use the second commander to leverage more lifegain for bigger nauses. If you have ludevic just for colors I would suggest Kraum, Ludevic's Opus because he has a good sized body and doesn't give your opponents card advantage. Could also fake being an opus theif deck that way.

+1 cuz Tana is best girl. You might like these: Bravado, Ivy Lane Denizen, Thallid Germinator, Betrothed of Fire, Hunter's Prowess, Might of the Masses, Ohran Frostfang, Keeper of Fables, Impact Tremors, Song of Freyalise, Utopia Mycon
Also I'd highly recommend pairing her with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. A Bravado effect + double strike on Tana gets interesting REAL FAST! Here's my list if you're interested: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower

Tana is one of my faves! I built her with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and it has become my strongest deck (a double-striking Tana with Sigil of the Nayan Gods is super gnarly). Here's my list if you wanna check it out: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower.
You might consider these cards: Bravado, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Thallid Germinator, Mantle of Leadership, Betrothed of Fire, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Cathars' Crusade, Goldnight Commander, Bastion Protector, Hunter's Prowess, Druids' Repository, Rishkar's Expertise

I don't think I plan on going wide. I was thinking maybe having 2-3 creatures on the battlefield most of the time. I was picturing win-cons that would function once I have a Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, a Zurgo Helmsmasher, and an Aurelia, the Warleader on the battlefield at once, and how I turn those creatures into a victory. And it is just occurring to me how bonkers Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder would be in this group . . .
Is extra combats a potential avenue? I had considered that a bit, but I don't know how much redundancy I can have for that win condition. Aurelia would certainly appreciate that, I think.
Maybe a mix of alpha-strikes, extra combats, and damage doublers would be the way to go?

So, the printing of Saskia in the upcoming SLD has been the inspiration/encouragement/reason I needed to finally start building her, but I am a bit stuck with how to go about it. I currently have a bunch of directions in my head, but I need to file it down to make it work. Here are my vibes so far:
Legends! I have found a bunch of combat-focused/synergistic to goof around with Saskia's ability, and I think a Legends theme could be very functional in a midrange value deck. Cards like Aurelia, the Warleader, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Queen Marchesa, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Zurgo Helmsmasher and Shalai, Voice of Plenty really offer a powerful way to supply the beatdown. I would of course throw in all of the Legends support spells, like Reki, History of Kamigawa, Captain Sisay (also in the SLD, by the way), Time of Need and Heroes' Podium.
Sunforger! I love this card, and being in four colors gives me a bunch of really great targets to get my damage through, protect my board, find my answers to threats and grind out the game. A few stand-outs from my preliminary research include Naya Charm, Boros Charm, Eladamri's Call, Enlightened Tutor, Signal the Clans, Congregation at Dawn and Crackling Doom, and all of the best instant-speed removal I could want in pieces like StP, PtE, and personal favorite: Crush Contraband. There would need to be a couple Sunforger synergies to make this work, such as graveyard->library shuffle effects like Mistveil Plains or maybe even Gaea's Blessing? Not sure about graveyard shuffling effects, so I am open to suggestion.
Curses! Saskia already reads like a Curse on a creature body, so I thought this may be a weird direction to go in! There are several fantastic Aura Curses in these colors, and I could run an enchantress-style of deck using these cards as a way to delay my opponents' plans and encourage them to attack each other instead of me. Good examples of cards to run in this theme are Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Bounty, Curse of Bloodletting, Curse of Opulence, and while not a Curse, Captive Audience is pretty hilarious - especially when cast against the right opponent. I would obviously run the supports cards to make this strategy work, such as the enchantress creatures and enchantment-casting synergies of the like.
So, I think some subset (maybe all?) of these themes and strategies could coexist, but I would love to see what y'all think. What could I do with my favorite badass asskicker?
