Just gonna leave this here...

The really fun part is after tapping to smack someone directly, you pop a Fling and double it, combine that with things like Overblaze to double it further.

My main problem in playing my deck is that it doesn't recover well. Heavy blue opponents with counters and heavy white opponents with damage mitigation ruins the initial barrage, and it doesn't really build well the second time around.

CharonSquared: Because that triple is not only rough on the colored mana, but also (almost) guarantees that Xenagod will become a creature, making him more vulnerable. I use Blood Mist and Overblaze instead for those reasons.

Why bother with Overblaze when Gratuitous Violence is so much better? =)

Xenagos, God of Revels + Hydra Omnivore + Berserk/Fatal Frenzy + Overblaze + double strike. You're welcome.

But yes, Xenagod screams Gruul.

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:

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Quest for Pure Flame

Dictate of the Twin Gods

Gratuitous Violence

Furnace of Rath

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.

Also,

Inquisitor's Flail

Bitter Feud

Overblaze

Curse of Bloodletting

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.

Overblaze seems custom-made for Heartless Hidetsugu. Gives you your Furnace of Rath effect for a turn, but only for the creature you control that matters.

Generator Servant ramps out your commander early, plus he gives him haste so you can immediately activate the ability as soon as he hits the battlefield.

Reforge the Soul might be worth considering running since monored doesn't have very many ways to refuel its hand, plus it wrecks opponents setting up combos or who are playing control.

Hammer of Purphoros is a great topdeck late game, plus it fulfills Fervor's role of enabling your commander's ability as soon as he hits the board.

Mind Stone is mana ramp and card advantage. Probably worth a slot.

Faithless Looting also helps you sort through your topdeck to draw necessary cards.

Caged Sun is incredibly powerful in monocolored EDH; ramp and lord effect wrapped into one card.

Vandalblast is an extra option to blow up all the annoying artifacts your opponents will be playing.

Pristine Talisman at first might seem to be a particularly expensive, mediocre mana rock, but 1 life might be the difference you need with Heartless Hidetsugu's effect to win the game.
