Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

Cyberseb on Eldrazi in edh

Here's 5 commanders that would be great I just can't pick one so I'm gonna ask one more time for your help

Rakdos, Lord of RiotsLike everyone said he's amazing can cast you your eldrazi for free if you can deal the damage and he let me run my favorite card Sorin Markov with his -3 as a second win con with all the life burning spell and abilities and get red and black eldrazi.

Jhoira of the GhituCasting eldrazi foris so great I know 4 turns must past first but I was told there's cards that can remove counters so they could be cast faster and they also gain hasteAnd I saw a little card I liked Wonder flying eldrazi is just crazy to think.

Kruphix, God of HorizonsNot much to tell but from what i unserstand as long as he's on he field you never lose your manaSo i guess i could tap all my lands at the end of my opponent turn then get them back on my turm and have more mana to cast my eldrazi earl and again Wonder but this time i could also get Birthing Pod and some green and blue eldrazi in the mix.

Saskia the UnyieldingI usually end up playing in a group where nobody gives a damn about me till at least 1 player is dead and I was thinking that I could probably end up killing 2 players at once with her abilityMaking an eldrazi 20/20 unblockable is fairly easy with ramp and with 1 or 2 equipments and in mid to late game when lifes are low or just a little bit higher than half is just easy to finish off in red.

Kynaios and Tiro of MeletisGets you lands gets you draws And people think you're playing group hug and then bam big creatures and big slaps and you can back up your stuff with negation blue and did i mention Wonder?.

So what do you guys think ?

ThermalMeerkat on The Druken Enraged

I like it, but I have a question. Suppose I copied most of this deck, added some black cards with synergy and made the commander Saskia the Unyielding.

How well do you think she would support this strategy and do you think it would be worth it to add black?

DukeSteele on The Last Guardian (Control)

The deck had its sophomore outing at FNM!

I faced off against two Edgar Markov decks and Saskia the Unyielding infect.

A truly terrifying 4 man pod for a rookie control player!!!

Azor took the win at the last possible moment, staring down an army of vampires with only a few life left!

Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin into Rings of Brighthearth with Basalt Monolith already in play let me draw and gain 53 into the Labman.

What a rush.

Used my winnings to buy Swan Song and the nasty Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to possibly add to the 99.

DrukenReaps on Reanimators?

1 month ago

So recently-ish I built The Druken Enraged with Saskia the Unyielding as commander but I found Marath, Will of the Wild after who actually adds more than just colors to the deck. Saskia's purpose is purely colors and one funny interaction where I can name myself... while Marath can act as an "activator" for the deck's enragers.

The problem is I lose and all it's reanimating goodies which the deck doesn't need but it makes things run smoother.

Could you guys name some good reanimators in ? Thanks, I've been having trouble finding some that are reusable.

filkinsmark on Unstoppable Warrior Tribal Input Welcome!

Dorotheus thanks for commenting! I chose Saskia the Unyielding for the commander of this list because of the fact I feel she has to be WOTC's biggest flavor-fail... She clearly ought to be a Warrior sub-type rather than a Soldier... but even with that huge fail, I think the Warrior list is more lethal than the United and Unyielding Human Tribal list or the My Liege | Saskia Voltron builds (though Humans has shown to be the most resilient)

Anyway! I actually think both her color and effect are ludicrously strong, that's why I kept her. I played around with Reyhan and Bruse, but I felt that required abuse of the +1/+1 counter mechanic, and once I fell down that little rabbit hole, I thought it would be better suited by not being a Tribal deck anymore...

As per your equipment ideas, I knew of and decided against Obsidian Battle-Axe, but you make an interesting point about Hero's Blade, I wasn't aware of that little gem!

Anywho, thanks for the feedback, feel free to +1, share and check out any other lists!

I would say the better commanders for this idea of a deck to be Queen Marchesa or Saskia the Unyielding

Gadianten on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

Hey Managem thanks for comment, you seem to have the combo down. An amusing thing to note is that if Grand Abolisher is in play then there is really nothing anyone can do to stop it.

I have managed to shut down Saskia the Unyielding and friends with Battletide Alchemist, Master Apothecary and a four other clerics... he was not amused. He was much less amused when Mother of Runes ran interference against spot removal.
