Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

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!

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.

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 ;)

Here is a list of some great cards you could consider for this deck. Corpsejack Menace, Horde of Notions, Sliver Queen, Progenitus, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Saskia the Unyielding, Cruel Ultimatum, Brilliant Ultimatum, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Bound/Determined, Decimate, Urban Evolution, Abzan Charm, Bant Charm, and Sultai Charm.
As far as some cuts go you could cut these Chandra's Ignition, Day's Undoing, Reforge the Soul, Unexpected Results, Mind's Dilation. I don't really thing they do enough in this deck.

Death's Presence is good because you can dump counters onto Ramos or other creatures. Necropolis Regent gets out of hand fast, as does Kalonian Hydra. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is decent for buffing your army for only 3 mana. Chasm Skulker and Hangarback Walker are great ways to utilize those +1/+1 counters to make a big board state. In tandem with Vorel of the Hull Clade, you can run Gilder Bairn which can also double planeswalker loyalty if you need it. Casting Conflux while Ramos is in play tutors for a bunch of cards that you can then cast immediately, like Doubling Season for your green card and Tamiyo, Field Researcher for either your white or blue card.For cards to take out, Mayael the Anima is the first because have only 4 creatures that she can grab, which means she will miss a lot of her activations. Gleam of Battle and Forced Adaptation are very low impact cards. You run too many instant and sorcery cards for Primal Surge to be reliable and can often turn into paying 10 mana to get little to nothing for it. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis don't even synergize with the deck other than giving Ramos 4 +1/+1 counters, which Saskia the Unyielding can do, and she can deliver some mean beats in this deck as well. Borborygmos, Tariel, Vorosh, and Oloro are all good cards to cut as well.

I think Saskia the Unyielding really fits as a curse commander because he targets a player to take damage when he comes in. As far as curses go, Green doesn't seem to be pulling its weight, but the mana ramp and fixing will make a big difference in trying to cast the bigger curses. I play against a lot of mill decks in my playgroup, and I did not want to get played out if I killed someone with all my cool curses, so I built in a lot of recursion for my curse deck (Queen of Curses and Chaos). Really cool build.

If Saskia the Unyielding was your commander, you could play these cards and include Alesha...she just can't be your commander
