JuQ on Yasova EDH

Looks better indeed, those counters will prove useful. I love the Shaman of the Great Hunt In fact I had it in the back of my head.

I'm thinking about the Obsidian Battle-Axe. I'm using it in a Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck I'm trying. The best thing of the card is the haste, but Yasova it's not like Alesha, she doesn't need to attack to do her thing. Auto attaching equipments are cool, but I think in this deck that one is underperforming, if you draw it when Yasova is already on the table equipping it a pain in the neck. Using it to give haste to your other creatures is also difficult. The only other warrior in your deck already has haste.
It also has same CMC as Yasova and you would have to delay her one turn. If you use it for the cheap +2 power you could just use Bonesplitter and move it around when you need for just .
My weapon of choice for her is still Runechanter's Pike. First Strike is a tremendous advantage for her, either attacking or blocking and as soon as you have two instant or sorceries in your graveyard it will already be better than the other similar option, No-Dachi, and the ceiling of this card is super high.

Thank you all for the comments and upvotes!

magicsheep Thank you so much for your kind words! Appreciate it!

scotchtapedsleeves Shifting Shadow seems too random for me, and Anger is too slow. I have Generator Servant and Obsidian Battle-Axe to provide haste. Thanks for taking a look!

S1ayerMonkey Thanks for the comment! Yeah there aren't enough mono-red commander players out there :)

I've considered the Helm and Swallower but wan't hot on them. Price of progress I recently took out because it didn't preform well. Lava Axe and Artillerize are sub par damage spells and won't fit here. i went over the absence of X-spells in my primer :)

Thanks again!

Grahamatica Thanks for the comment and concern! As cdkime said, protection prevents dmage as well, saving my creatures form my damage spells and such. Thanks for the 150th upvote!

cdkime Thank you for the rules clarification! :)

Again, many thanks to all who comment and upvote! Keep 'em coming!

Vengeful Firebrand (maybe maybe not), Obsidian Battle-Axe (definitely), Cathars' Crusade (oh boy), and Path of Ancestry (definitely) are the only other things I could think of that you could benefit from, maybe there are other cards with ferocious or formiddible that you could run in these colors. Otherwise I think you got'em all.

SaifurCommander yay I can finally see your comment! Thanks for the comment and upvote! I've added Darksteel Plate just days before you commented, Berserkers' Onslaught doesn't really do enough for me to sacrifice a 5-drop slot, and Hammer of Purphoros was replaced by Obsidian Battle-Axe. Thanks for looking friend!

Dorotheus thanks for commenting! I chose Saskia the Unyielding for the commander of this list because of the fact I feel she has to be WOTC's biggest flavor-fail... She clearly ought to be a Warrior sub-type rather than a Soldier... but even with that huge fail, I think the Warrior list is more lethal than the United and Unyielding Human Tribal list or the My Liege | Saskia Voltron builds (though Humans has shown to be the most resilient)

Anyway! I actually think both her color and effect are ludicrously strong, that's why I kept her. I played around with Reyhan and Bruse, but I felt that required abuse of the +1/+1 counter mechanic, and once I fell down that little rabbit hole, I thought it would be better suited by not being a Tribal deck anymore...

As per your equipment ideas, I knew of and decided against Obsidian Battle-Axe, but you make an interesting point about Hero's Blade, I wasn't aware of that little gem!

Anywho, thanks for the feedback, feel free to +1, share and check out any other lists!

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan is at least a warrior and then that would leave you with Red White and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is pretty dang decent as a 4 drop psudeo-Titan making beating down more... double-strikey. Then you have Obsidian Battle-Axe to give Warriors haste and you have enough legendary creatures to make Hero's Blade useful.

Megalomania thanks again! I'll have a look!

shiki1335 Thanks for the comment!

Obsidian Battle-Axe I like because it gives Neheb haste, extra power, and that 1 extra toughness that lets him survive stuff like Inferno and Bloodfire Colossus. Mask of Memory is good and I'll consider it.

Inferno. Hmmmm. Fanning the Flames might be a good replacement.

Akroma's Memorial is just too good in my meta and too easy to cast with Neheb. Sphinx-Bone Wand doesn't do enough soon enough.

I'll also consider Seething Song.

Thanks all!
