Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

synchi64 on Can i respond to a ...

1 week ago

Let's put that question into context, i want to build a human tribal deck around Saskia the Unyielding, as i bult it, i found the deck lacking of remouval, so i concidered adding Mangara of Corondor, since i run Ashnod's Altar, and since i care about graveyard interaction, here's the real question, asuming i tap Mangara of Corondor to put Mangara of Corondor's activated ability on the stack, can i sacrifice Mangara of Corondor using Ashnod's Altar after i pay the cost of Mangara of Corondor's activated ability but with the ability still on the stack, to exile target permanent but puting Mangara of Corondor into the graveyard instead of exiling it?

This deck has gone through 3 iterations, each bringing a different color identity. The deck started at Mardu with Zurgo Helmsmasher, then 4 color with Saskia the Unyielding, and now finally full WUBRG with Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. So a lot of the cards you have been in the deck at one point.

Aven Wind Guide is definitely a cards I need to think about, Brighthearth Banneret as well. Champion of Lambholt was in the running during the Saskia stage, but was cut because I didn't think it would do great, but it definitely would now. Rushblade Commander was under consideration as well, but looking back I should have cut Madrush Cyclops instead. Thrasher Brute will be considered as well.

Aura Shards would be a good idea seeing as this deck has the capacity to produce tons of tokens. Settle the Wreckage is a nice instant speed board wipe, and you underestimate Insidious Will. It is awesome to just turn someone's Path to Exile or other ambush effect when you are attacking and turn it against its caster.

Card draw isn't a huge concern, but there is always a place for it. Both Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies were in here at a point, they will have to find a spot once again.

You also underestimate Aggravated Assault I won't always have Najeela, and there is a possibility that I won't have WUBRG.

Hazezon Tamar is mostly here for more tokens, and Dakkon Blackblade is a beast, he can get huge. This can draw attention away from other cards, or just do some damage. Ezuri, Claw of Progress, is a nice card. All these tokens that get produced give me experience counters, allowing me to dump counters on stuff until my opponents are forced to get rid of Ezuri. Jazal Goldmane is nice because if I have a lot of tokens it makes them huge.

The +2/+2 affect of Bear Umbra is just a perk, the real power comes from the "When this creature attacks, untap all lands you control"

Thanks for the suggestions, this will help the deck advance and become better!

Well, there is a reason there really isn't good aggressive commander as such - Commander is usually multiplayer and creatures and spells that normally go into an aggressive deck are costed to get a single opponent from 20 to 0 in the fastest way possible. When players have double the life and you have on average 120 life to go through, it becomes incredibly inefficient.

That said, I think Saskia the Unyielding is the best choice. Having a one player Furnace of Rath is extremely useful, as casting her essentially halves a player's lifetotal.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is theoretically one of the meanest I've seen. Releases with battlebond.

Some others that do a decent job: Saskia the Unyielding, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Xenagos, God of Revels

KrimeFyta on Warrior at heart

We are in complete agreement about Saskia the Unyielding being a warrior, not so much a soldier. Perhaps even a berserker? When I first saw the woad paint on her, I immediately became hopeful that she was Balduvian. And speaking of Balduvians, what's your stance on Balduvian Warlord?

I applaud your first-ever commander deck, absolutely. I'm making my first-ever commander deck as well, I've held out for sooo long! What's the deal with 40 life, anyway? Most of the EDH games I'm aware of are multiplayer, which makes me think players need to bring a pillow to games so they can take a nap while waiting for their next turn. Aren't multiplayer games long enough for these animals? We need to find a way to drag these games out even longer!? Why must I be a man without a country!?

Alas, the local scene around here is pretty much exclusive to commander decks.

JoeNathan37 on -1/-1 fun?

Since your deck has lots of -1/-1 counter synergies and also has both black and green, you may want to consider putting Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons in your deck. She seems like she would work very well in your deck.

You also may want to consider enchantments such as Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, and Nest of Scarabs. I have a The Scorpion God deck and all three of those enchantments put in serious work.

You have Kodama's Reach in here but you don't have Cultivate, which is essentially the exact same card. You might want to consider using it as well.

I don't know if you want to run only basic lands in this deck or what, but if not you should definitely upgrade your mana base. One card that should be in just about every EDH deck is Command Tower, especially in a 4-color deck like this one.

I like this deck a lot. I had never thought of using Saskia the Unyielding to get access to more colors for a -1/-1 counter strategy and it seems to work pretty well. These are just some thoughts I had while looking through your deck that could potentially improve it. Scorpion God wither is my Scorpion God deck if you're interested, it could give you some new ideas for your own deck.
