To your first comment, I would say Animist is always good. Fetching that color of land that you need is always important.

Conquerer's Flail is great for flavor in a deck, but Grand Abolisher is just so much stronger.

As for the gods, keep them. They're indestructible and so easy to cast with only 1 color devotion in their CMC. They'll stick around longer and do exactly what you want from the other creatures that give the exact same bonuses.

Also consider cards like Hellrider and Raid Bombardment that shoot your opponents when your creatures attack.

Cool Stuff: Give Hellrider infect with Glistening Oil and take out the Brago player as soon as possible. Aggro beats control because control needs more time to setup their board presence before they can lock down the game and contol their opponents.

They're already choosing to play cutthroat generals like Brago, Eternal Douchebag. Time for them to just #gitgudm8

Blitz the fuck outta them!

Me when I heard about it: "What do you mean they made a two drop Hellrider?!"

Alright, so some changes come to mind immediately.

First, Nissa, Nature's Artisan isn't that great. I'd recommend cutting her, Dazzling Refection, Verdant Crescendo for a few extra lands. I'd recommend Llanowar Wastes, Battlefield Forge, Brushland, Sulfurous Springs, Overgrown Tomb, Sacred Foundry, Temple Garden and Stomping Ground as well as cutting some taplands for these for a few utility lands like Homeward Path or Strip Mine. As for your basic land distribution, try 3 Swamp, 2 Plains 2 Forest 2 Mountain. It'll work a hell of a lot better than 9 Swamps.

As for your creature base, for such an aggressive deck, it's actually pretty low. I don't personally see Curse of Vengeance, Campaign of Vengeance, Holy Mantle, Fragmentize, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Tormenting Voice, Dark Ritual doesn't really cut it in this deck, Bloodchief Ascension is only good with Mindcrank, Palace Siege, or Retreat to Hagra really doing anything in this deck with such a low count. Add Fumiko the Lowblood, Avatar of Slaughter (who literally went from about 2 bucks to ten this past week, so wait a bit on him), Hellrider, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Ankle Shanker, Aurelia, the Warleader, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Solemn Simulacrum, Brooding Saurian, and Ogre Battledriver. Cut Vampire Cutthroat, he's really, really bad. Same with Hellkite Tyrant; he's good, but not here. In their place, add Thunderfoot Baloth, Dragonlord Dromoka. If you really, really want to go for the hardline aggressive route, cut Drana's Emmisary and Cliffhaven Vampire for Dauntless Escort and Mirror Entity.

Blood Seeker is strictly worse than Suture Priest; making the switch will go very well. Also, finding a cut for Tana, the Bloodsower, who goes infinite with a haste enabler and something to make your opponents not block (Chaos, maybe?)

Cutting Lightning Helix, while a great card, for Fires of Yavimaya will really give you the upper hand in combat, which is where this deck is attempting to reign. If you need card draw, cut Read the Bones for something like Necropotence or Mentor of the Meek. Make something out of the inherent lifegain in the deck, don't just use your life as a bragging point.

Not all of these switches need to be made, but this deck is designed to go sideways. Make sure it works with it. If you need any other ideas for your deck, use EDHREC for Saskia to get some ideas. Seriously, this website is incredible. Good luck!

Gah! Formatting fail!

-Plains + Canopy Vista

-Forest + Cinder Glade

These multi-lands were cheap enough to pick up, helped the mana a little

-Siege Behemoth + Grenzo, Havoc Raiser

-Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts + Impact Tremors

These are both 7CMC creatures who didn't really close out a game as I wanted. I'd prefer to have a couple of much cheaper options, get the damage in earlier with Impact Tremors, and use Grenzo as a defensive measure with Goad, or play stuff from my opponents library (or just mass exile their library) if my tokens break through.

-Aurelia, the Warleader + Cryptolith Rite

-Dictate of the Twin Gods + Campaign of Vengeance

I didn't like the of Aurelia, and the Dictate was in the deck from back when it was a Saskia build; the symmetry isn't as useful with my token strategy as it is with a guaranteed Saskia.Replaced with the Rite, for mana fixing with my tokens, and the Campaign, to go with the Hellrider and Brutal Hordechief

-Monastery Mentor + Ulasht, the Hate Seed

I didn't think there were enough noncreature spells in the deck to make the Monk worthwhile, after he comes out, I might get a monk every other turn. Ulasht is much more likely to get me a bunch of tokens, and interacts well with Mana Echoes (as does Marath, Will of the Wild and Ghave, Guru of Spores

I've also made 2 more changes (in addition to fixing up my formatting - no edit button for comments?):

-Rampant Growth + Sylvan Scrying

-Sakura-Tribe Elder + Expedition Map

Seeing as there's only 4 basic land in the whole deck now, switching my land fetch to be non basic specific should help a lot.

Here are some staple token cards in your colours: Blade of Selves, Akroan Hoplite, Wings of the Guard, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Custodi Soulcaller, Grenzo's Ruffians, Hellrider, and eh... you have that one I can't think of much more at the moment...

Some of these are not staples but I just like them.

GoldenDiggle: Thanks for the comment! :) A quick response:

1) Yes, I 100% need Shaman of Forgotten Ways. I just don't own a copy, alas. I'll try and pick one up though! What would you cut for it?

2) I do think Hellrider is a bit too weak in commander, since its damage is not doubled by Saskia.

3) I've found most of those hate-bears to be subpar in EDH, but Linvala might go in - she's so fantastic. I'll keep her as a strong contender for inclusion :)

What would you cut from the deck to fit them in?

Thanks for your comment! You're welcome to leave a +1 if you like the deck.

Hey, I saw the idea and wanted to get in on the fun!

Now, Biorhythm is banned, and a sorcery, how scandalous. But... you could run Biorythm on a stick! Shaman of Forgotten Ways even taps for 2 of any color. PartyJ mentioned him, and I think he is a must include. Not to mention his tap ability is pretty stronk.

If you are looking for some good aggro, Hellrider can always come back to smash the format, just like he used to.

Might as well play some hatebears. I see you have Gaddock Teeg, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and friends, take it a step further with Dryad Militant, Imposing Sovereign, Leonin Arbiter, Voice of Resurgence, and Linvala, Keeper of Silence (why not).

I know you wanna go mono creature... but... Primal Surge... the potential...
