Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Discussion

Optimator on Bastards on Parade

The deck doesn't likely ramp enough to make it worth it, but Helix Pinnacle is always worth a chuckle. I've seen it work in Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant decks. Also, turning elves sideways might be more fun anyway

Say player 1 has infinite mana (perhaps through Grand Architect + Pili-Pala ) and a Masticore and player 2 has Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant . P1 shoots sasaya with the masticore, P2 uses sasaya to reveal in response, P1 shoots sasaya in response, etc etc. What actually happens?

Per rules, the only way a game can end are here:

104.4b If a game that’s not using the limited range of influence option (including a two-player game) somehow enters a “loop” of mandatory actions, repeating a sequence of events with no way to stop, the game is a draw. Loops that contain an optional action don’t result in a draw.

Since both actions are optional, what happens? I can see 2 options, one of the players decides not to activate their ability and the stack then resolves, or both players decide on a mutual draw. However, no rules I can find say what happens when neither player backs down or agrees to draw. In tournament, the game could go to time? But other than that I'm not sure.

Hey man, love your list!

I'm running a Reki myself and been having tons of fun with it. If I may just drop some suggestions here:

Honor-Worn Shaku , my god this over performs in many ways. It's no legendary but it works well with any legendary.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer This beast pumps out heavy mana in your second main phases and has great synergy with your Omnath, Locus of Mana . I'd switch her with Sashi, Daughter of Seshiro. You don't have that much snakes or shamans to make her that important imo.

Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Goes GREAT with Rites of Spring Imagine one forest tapping for 11 mana...

The Great Henge Is jsut ONE of those cards..

Patron of the Orochi Also very nice with Honor-Worn Shaku or any form of mana doubler.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Because salty tears taste best with Vorinclex on the field.

Nissa, Worldwaker just the +1 to untap FOUR FORESTS.. and let's not get started over the -7. There are many other planeswalker I run in my deck but this one definitely stands out for me.

Bow of Nylea has so much possibility's and potential in an entire EDH match, don't underestimate this card.

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Helped me get some stuff out of the graveyard lategame. Pretty awesome.

Jiang Yuanggu, Wildcrafter goes together well with your Rishkar, Peema Renegade AND generates more potential for mana dorks. Leyline of Abundance is a definite recommendation with this.

Please link all cards in your question using double brackets.

Helm of the Host

Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant

I'm not sure what you are asking because there are a few different interactions.

  • If you are asking about what happens to equipment attached to a permanent when that permanent changes type, the equipment falls off as a state-based action due to being attached to an illegal object.

  • If you are asking about copying a flip card, the copy still has the flip ability and can turn into the flipped version of the card since it is all on the same face of the card.

vs Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant + Breya, Etherium Shaper + The Ur-Dragon
Partenza mediocre senza strappi o giocate particolarmente incisive, frutto di una mano mediocre.
Aggredisco Breya, Etherium Shaper con una removal e ne sparo una seconda su un drago molesto, nel frattempo cerco di tenere botta con un Maze of Ith .
Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant flippa e inizia a caricare un Helix Pinnacle , ma i draghi crescono e Dromoka, the Eternal diventa presto incontenibile, affiancato anche da Scalelord Reckoner e altre lucertole meno interessanti.
Ci chiudiamo tutti in difesa, sperando di vedere qualche removal o resettone che non arriveranno mai.
Alla fine scende anche Utvara Hellkite e non possiamo che soccombere.

Skyshroud Claim is better than Explosive Vegetation. Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma can reduce the costs of your creatures and give trample. You could try Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant as another way to ramp when you have drawn lots of cards from Grothama. Shaman of Forgotten Ways can ramp while providing an alternative wincon when you have enough mana.
