The thing is to build a saskia deck you have to do combat damage. Just trying to do such a thing in CMDR is hard. Because you can't just chip away at people and expect them to not get pissed off and do something about it.

So you need to build an army of creatures then do an alpha swing knocking out several opponents at once in hopes that it isn't stoped by a

So it's a tough build to do right. You want to have enough big fat creatures but enough anwsers for what youll encounter like someone putting

You see the problem is creatures are just so easy to deal with. So in order to make this a successful deck you also need ways to make them relentless with stuff that gives your creatures haste and graveyard stuff. Living End, Rise of the Dark Realms, Victimize, maybe some persist effects like Cauldron of Souls and undying stuff like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed but you can't make it easy to destroy your stuff so you'll need stuff like Avacyn, Angel of Hope, but thats not gonna stop exile. So you'll need stuff like Privileged Position, so they cant be targeted. But that's not stopping Terminus. Aaaannnd still, there's nothing you can do about Cyclonic Rift, or Toxic Deluge. But the Cyclonic Rift player will be waiting for that alpha swing, so you will have to be ready for it with a Red Elemental Blast and/or Pyroblast to counter it. But you'll still be getting blown out by a Toxic Deluge. So that's where the persist and undying come in also there's Rise of the Dark Realms

I run solemnity in my Zur deck as well and I definitely vouch for how powerful of a combo piece it is. I know you mentioned Glen Elendra Archmage earlier but I don’t see it on your list. That’s an infinite Negate. Another great persist card to go with solemnity is Kithkin Spellduster. For a little more fun with that one run Enchanted Evening and blow up any card you don’t like. And since I am on the subject of enchanted evening you can see how good it goes with your greater auramancy and speaking of the auramancy lol, consider Copy Enchantment to copy the auramancy so they can protect each other and every card you have on the battlefield. Sorry, got off topic there lol. Where was I? Oh yes, Solemnity lol. Since I know you wanna push that card to it’s limits how bout this artifact for ya. Cauldron of Souls. Put in a bunch of creatures that have great sacrifice effects and get them all back just to reuse them every turn.

I second the Puppeteer Clique and Cauldron of Souls adds.

Looks at the deck again, I also think it really needs some board wipes.

I second all Pat's comments except I really do like Rend Flesh. I like it better than Bone Splinters. You have a lot of sac outlets and the sorcery speed is a real drawback.

Have you considered Trading Post, Geralf's Messenger, Puppeteer Clique, Cauldron of Souls? I really like undying/persist in this deck. There is also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, but price is a factor with him.

A couple things I don't like: Pitiless Plunderer, Cryptbreaker

I like what I see here. You definitely went for a more combo-centric Death and Taxes deck rather than going for an all out Darien Soldier Tribal deck. I like it!. It's definitely one of the better decks that I have seen and is definitely geared more towards winning. It's how you build a decent mono-white deck. DO NOT TAKE OUT YOUR STRONG HATE CARDS. They are the strength of this deck.

Cards I would consider taking out is Akroma's Memorial, Teferi's Protection (because your permanents phase out and it's a dead card in your hand most of the time), Comeuppance, Stoneforge Mystic and pretty much all of your equipment except protection like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. I know it goes well with your Historic cards but to me, white is much better and going wide and bulking up that way then stacking equipment that your opponent can chump block for days. Plus your commander is a whimpy 3/3 for 6. You want the ability.

I would add in more removal like Wrath of God and Terminus to go all out control and lock the game out. More card draw so your big mana doesn't go to waste, you have more answers and you can win the attrition battles of trading 1 for 1 and out-value your opponents with board wipes. Angelic Chorus and Archangel of Thune would be neat additions as well. Cathars' Crusade+Altar of Dementia is a good finisher.Hero of Bladehold can provide some early pressure. Mother of Runes seems like it would be perfect with this deck. Iona?

Out (my opinion):

Akroma's Memorial

Hammer of Nazahn

SoFF, SoWP

Thran Temporal Gateway? Look at your mana curve. Mostly under 4 anyways.

Comeuppance

Settle the Wreckage

Teferi's Protection

Platinum Angel (Any removal spell kills it). Not worth 7 mana

Stoneforge Mystic

Quicksilver Amulet

Chromatic Lantern

Dispatch

Angel's Grace?

In: 2 plains Wrath of God, Terminus, Cathars' Crusade, Knight of the White Orchid, Hero of Bladehold, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Staff of Nin, Carnage Altar, Archangel of Thune, Mother of Runes, Condemn Oblivion Ring, Cauldron of Souls

Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but I would not take your deck to tournaments. You'll be sadly dissapointed. It's not nearly as versatile as say Mono blue, mono black or Simic. Board wipes and removal kill you even with all the protection that you do have. All decks except blue are very open to Cyclonic Rift and we know that will always be a thing. Your deck is nasty don't get me wrong, but you are going up against 3 other players that aren't casual in tournament play. Try it for sure, but don't get your hopes up if you run into a Zur or mono blue Teferi deck.

How about Dross Scorpion? When it dies it untaps Cauldron of Souls so you can use it again, because once the creatures die and reenter the battlefield they're technically not the same permanents, so they won't have Persist any more.
