Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

Chandrian on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

1 day ago

I have commented on your deck TheSpiritombEnthusiast, I also commented on your deck Icbrgr.

I myself am building a Saskia the Unyielding deck and need some advice on what to cut. You can also make suggestions on cards to add, but then I really need examples of cards that should be cut.

Upvotes are always nice too :p

Saskia, Rainbow Warrior

Chandrian on Saskia the Unyielding + Panharmonicon?

2 days ago

Unfortunately no, Saskia the Unyielding's first ability starts with the word "as", while triggered abilities start with the words "when", "whenever" or "at".

For reference this is stated explicitly on the card Strionic Resonator.

Phyroxis on Saskia the Unyielding + Panharmonicon?

Does Saskia the Unyielding's first ability trigger Panharmonicon, allowing you to choose two players?

chosenone124 on Who Voltrons Progenitus?????

1 week ago

You might want cards to stop boardwipes, as attempting to repeatedly cast Progenitus from your command zone seems like an inefficient gameplan.

Saskia the Unyielding would provide a good alternate plan in your deck, as if Progenitus suffers an unfortunate fate you would still be able to wreck someone's face.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope would also provide another powerful alternate win condition and also give Progenitus ye old hexproof shroud combo.

As for cuts, Juniper Order Ranger seems a little iffy. Your deck doesn't really run enough +1/+1 counter cards for that to be efficient (Crusade, Nyssa, and Ancient are likely not enough). Mana Flare should replaced with Mana Reflection if you want a mana doubler. Meteorite doesn't seem very efficient for its cost. Kaysa is probably your worst anthem effect, considering cost and range. Glorious Anthem doesn't feel very impactful, especially when compared to alternate cards like Always Watching .

I love the deck though. Wish I could afford it :/

SpookyToe on Chaos with Counters and Tokens

This lacks focus.

When you look at a deck, it should be very easy to decipher what it is you want to do.

For example: Hapatra puts counters on things. And this Jund guy reanimates things.

Not so great with infect.

For a truly BRUTAL infect strategy, what I think is stronger and more deadly than Skittles, is either Saskia the Unyielding, my personal favorite general for infect edh, or another all-star for infect, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder.

Both of these generals have jund, but more. the extra color palate can allow you to play cards like Anointed Procession, and you can get either one of those pre-cons for less than the commander you're using right now.

I'd give them a try.

drwhosmith4 on Does this infinite burn combo ...

3 weeks ago

I was developing a deck for commander after Saskia the Unyielding came out and wondered if these two cards worked the way I intended. I only question it because after looking it up on Youtube and tappedout, I realize that no one else uses it. It only requires Sekki, Seasons' Guide and Warstorm Surge or anything similar. When you cast Sekki, Seasons' Guide you target himself with the damage from Warstorm Surge . You then get 8 spirits and deal the necessary damage wherever you want. Afterwards you sacrifice the spirits to bring Sekki, Seasons' Guide and repeat until your opponent is dead.

Best answer to field wipes is to wipe the field first.

But if you really wanna be aggro you could try Karn, Silver Golem. doesnt seem like an aggro commander I suppose but I've lost track of how many times I ended games by animating 20 artifacts and turning them 90 degrees. Its tough to keep instant speed board wipe ready for that. Still you need indestructible to back it up, things like Soul of New Phyrexia and Eldrazi Monument really help, soooo many destroy artifact effects...

Saskia the Unyielding is a great aggro commander lacking only blue gives you everything you could possibly want and more. Plus you can actually do enough damage to close a game with aggro.

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is a good aggroish commander though tends more towards combo for a competitive list. she does allow easy reanimation cheaply to recover from a wipe. i find it is much easier to reanimate after a wipe then it is to always hold onto an answer for a wipe. you wont always be able to have Boros Charm available so bringing stuff back is much easier.

Saskia the Unyielding gives access to both Boros and Golgari Charm. There's also Whisperwood Elemental, Selfless Spirit and Dauntless Escort to protect you from field nukes.
