Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

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.

100 bucks is hard but if you start with a precon and make a few upgrades it should be possible to come out with something good. Any of the 4-color precons are good though 4-colors itself can be hard to handle so you could take a look at other precons if you are new to the game. any hints on what you like to play? tokens? voltron? control? hug? slug? etc etc.
all of the 4-color commander precons start decent but they are precons so they need upgrading.
Breya, Etherium Shaper is a great combo commander, artifacts can easily infinite combo without you even realizing it. Of course you can avoid the combos and still make a really good deck.
Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder makes a great voltron and storm commander. Storm is a combo strategy so if you are wanting to avoid that he becomes a very efficient voltron deck. free stuff left and right!
Saskia the Unyielding this is probably the worst of the 4-color because aggro is weak in a 40 life multiplayer game. she is able to make aggro work if you use Furnace of Rath or other damage doublers, she is good just beating 3+ people with combat damage is not easy. does get around pillow fort if that is an issue.
Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis this deck is high on value but is a hug deck. that is not everyones cup of tea and often needs to combo off to win if winning is possible. I would say this one likely needs the most upgrades to send it in a direction.
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice the most expensive and easiest to go nuts with the fewest upgrades. im not sure there is much more to say...

I am looking for help in finding a color combination and commander / commanders that can helm a deck that includes such a variety of cards like Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator, Restoration Angel, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Hanna, Ship's Navigator, Ward of Bones, Dark Confidant, Aetherflux Reservoir, Alhammeret's Archive etc.
I know there is a huge varient of cards here that shouldnt really be considered but I wanted to have a strong ETB creature synergy, lifegain, and some sort of aggressive win con all at the same time. I am willing to consider 4 color commanders (5 color is okay but I don't like any of them which is what deters me the most]]. I have good green which is considered as well but it would be supplemented to mana curve and draw and not anything else. 3 color commander colors is preferred as Bant, Esper, and Jeskai are all considered as well.
Another weird stipulation though not a make or break deal is I like my commanders to be female.
Commanders I have looked at heavily are Narset, Enlightened Master (though I would not want her to be ran in that OP creaturless storm extravaganza of hate she can be ran as), Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge (see Narset), Hanna, Ship's Navigator, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, Zedruu the Greathearted, Merieke Ri Berit, Rubinia Soulsinger, Queen Marchesa, Marchesa, the Black Rose, Ishai and Vial Smasher, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Tymna and Kydele, or Saskia the Unyielding

I'm quite disappointed by this rules change. Not because it doesn't make sense. The split cards ARE complicated, and stay that way even with the rules change.
The thing that bugs me the most is WotC THEMSELVES made precons in Commander where you can use this "trick". For example, I got the Saskia the Unyielding precon from last year. That decks contains Sunforger and it actively uses/abuses some split cards.
I find at appaling that for so many years they have themselves explained how to "break" split cards, have made precons around it, etc. On gatherer the rulings were always clear (even when I was a new player, it felt a bit weird but it wasn't that difficult to understand)...
So they put time in explaining interactions to players, get new players hyped for this through their product and then YEARS after the first split cards came out they decide to just change the rule.

If there's aggro with card draw, it's viable. Saskia the Unyielding is one of the more punishing ago decks that doesn't run out of steam.

I'm not sure if you know, considering you mentioned this was your first deck, but commanders have to be Legendary Creatures. The Nephilim were long time group exceptions, as they were the only 4-color cards for a while, but it still only is playable when approved by the group you're with. Now, that may he fine in your meta, but I figured I'd put that in here since it wasn't mentioned yet, just to make sure you were aware.
That said, Saskia the Unyielding would be a fantastic commander for this deck. Get in some extra damage on the player of your choice and even double the life gained from lifelink. The other cards to consider would be a combination of the new partner cards
