Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

NyxDragon on Saskia of Quadruple-strike, Saprolings and Taxes

Debtors' Knell for a little recursion and maybe Privileged Position for a little hexproof.

Im sorry for all these cards. I want to make a Saskia the Unyielding deck and just running though cards that I may add.I look forward to seeing the new mods youre doing to it.

I changed my mind on a couple of things here.

1) I decided to use Tana, the Bloodsower + Tymna the Weaver for my commanders instead of Saskia the Unyielding. I think that they help the deck more than Saskia does, but Saskia can still be a member of the 98 since she's so cool.

2) I decided to take out Palisade Giant and Protector of the Crown to make room for Hornet Nest and other creatures that do cool things when damage is redirected their way. Obviously, that means we need more cards that can protect out creatures, so I threw in Indestructibility and Shielded by Faith.

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to link it. That's the easiest way to make sure everyone understands what's going on with your question: Saskia the Unyielding, Clone

Yes. As Clone is about to enter the battlefield, you apply the copy effect, then check again to see if there are any other effects you need to address as the creature enters the battlefield. This includes choosing an opponent for Saskia's ability.

I'm very curious to see where this leads. I could see a 4 color deck, maybe with Saskia the Unyielding as the commander?

I'm seeing a few challenges for this deck.

  1. Your ramp is having a good foundation, but you don't have a very large chance of landing a ramp spell on turn 2, if I were you I would exchange the Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot for an Orzhov Signet and a Gruul Signet, while on the topic of mana, you are playing Hour of Promise that synergizes well with Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, putting both in play at the same time.
  2. Your victory conditions seems to be scattered all around, you have a subtheme with planeswalkers and Parallel Lives, you have a token strategy with anthems to boost them, you have Purphoros, God of the Forge to kill people with tokens coming into play, then you have a couple of creatures which don't seem to support either of those strategies, you appear to be wanting to do too many different things.

I would consider replacing Saskia the Unyielding, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Iroas, God of Victory, Faith's Reward, Erebos, God of the Dead Beacon of Unrest, Xenagos, God of Revels, Ever After, Lurking Predators, Grave Titan.

A few suggestions on what to add instead could be something like Martyr's Cause, Retribution of the Meek, Fight to the Death, Obzedat's Aid (it can return planeswalkers), Blood Artist, Aura Shards Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Requiem Angel

In my experience, focusing on one main strategy and maaaybe one secondary strategy, is the way to get consistent performance with a deck.

Hey ldrago626, cool list! I did a Warrior Tribe deck with old Saskia the Unyielding-- Unstoppable Warrior Tribal Input Welcome!I like your inclusion of Bramblewood Paragon and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, but I feel you could lower your curve. Have you had any issues with tempo? We tribal folks gotta stick together lol, I have plenty of lists if you have ideas!

RazortoothMtg on A Call for Help

Based on your favorite cards, I'll list a few generals that do similar things as them.

Voice of Resurgence: Great cards in both Rhys the Redeemed and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, seeing as how they both want a lot of creatures to pump the token, as well as being able to clone the token. Also, voice is IMO a very underplayed card in EDH based on the number of counterspells and other instant speed tricks.

Scapeshift: Obviously we want a go-big landfall deck, similiar to Scapeshift/Valakut decks in modern. This points me towards Omnath, Locus of Rage as a landfall payoff, or Mina and Denn, Wildborn, a landfall enabler. Omnath decks typically play more of the mass landfall effects ala Scapeshift and Boundless Realms, with a few big landfall payoffs like Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths as replacements for Omnath in case he gets Nevermored or something. Mina and denn decks are more likely to play more land-to-hand type cards like Sprouting Vines to make mina and denns ability more potent, as well as mass landfall payoffs, from omnath to Grazing Gladehart, Zendikar's Roil, etc.

Bitterblossom sees probably the most play in Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, as his lifegain negates the downside, or pillowfort decks like Queen Marchesa that want to drag the game on with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Resistance, Suppression Field, etc. Think modern hatebears, but a lot bigger. And more hate, less bears.

Kor Spiritdancer = Uril, the Miststalker. All I can say there. Spiritdancer also goes in a huge amount of enchantress decks, with commanders like Bruna, Light of Alabaster, Rafiq of the Many, etc. Usually voltron. Can also be played in the much jankier and much more casual curse tribal deck. Think Curse of Misfortunes and Curse of Thirst as wincons. They're auras too.

Thoughtweft Trio: Only place I can think of is some terrible Kithkin tribal deck. Wizened Cenn is your only real lord... you can have Adaptive Automaton-esque cards as well. Pretty sure that in a Commander clash (MtgGoldfish) episode a while ago Richard played kithkin tribal, so you can look that up. Just remember, this deck is NOT good. I mean, i assume you like this card as just a cheap beater card, in which case maybe just Saskia the Unyielding beatdown might be your kind of thing.

All of these decks can be made for pretty cheap and upgraded pretty high.

Blo on Infect/Proliferate Commander

Saskia the Unyielding is quite the infect commander. It is also one of the few that can actually kill the players with infect, as opposed to killing one and running out of gas. You can build it really aggresive and to combine a Glistener Elf with a Giant Growth and Might of Old Krosa etc. or go a more resilient route by dealing a few infect points and proliferating them to death, while keeping the board clean of threats to you.
Alternatively Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a great proliferate commander as well, and gives options to superfriends (planeswalker) decks as well as infect, or counter matter cards.
Commanders like Rafiq of the Many or The Mimeoplasm are viable options as well, but offer different playstyles as the above.
Hope that helped some ;)
