Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

Boza on Do fog effects prevent loss ...

3 weeks ago

Angrath, the Flame-Chained and Raiders' Wake cause loss of life, which is notably not damage. Cards like Root Snare or Moment's Peace or Fog usually prevent combat damage, so no interaction with life loss at all.

Damage has different variants, most often divided into combat damage (damage done by creatures as a result of combat) and non-combat damage (any other damage). Saskia the Unyielding is a great example - she says that whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, it deals that much (non-combat) damage to the chosen player.

Loss of life is present on a few cards, mostly as a way to flavorfully change what damage is. However, it does have practical applications as well - all damage causes loss of life, so for example Exquisite Blood will trigger from attacking and dealing combat with a creature or by playing Corrupt on a player.

Boza on Bounty of might. What cards ...

Well, anything with doublestrike, so Swiftblade Vindicator perhaps. It is 20 damage with trample.

Anything that relies on the amount of damage it hits for, so Saskia the Unyielding can literally double your damage done with it. Szadek, Lord of Secrets too.

Sorin Markov can set someone to 10 and 1/1 with Bounty of Might will kill them from there.

One of my first decks in commander has been Nekusar and still is a blast to play. I have searched for a while for something that is both a blast to play and different every time. And thus I found Saskia the Unyielding legendary tribal:

The Legend of Saskia

Because you have different combinations of legendaries in play every game, every game is unique and attacking in commander is so refreshing. 4 colors means your mana is a bit weak, but you will be ramping anyways, so it is not too bad.

Additionally, literally every set brings something good for the deck, so your deck will never stay the same.

Saskia the Unyielding is pretty dope if you don't run into many board wipes/Crawlspace effects. Being 4 colors helps aswell.
MindAblaze: Prossh, Skyraider of Kher is alot of fun if you want to go an aristocrat route. That's my favorite deck for a few years now!

DrukenReaps on Looking for a token commander

So I miss having a token deck and I'm currently looking at the following to head such a deck: Ramos, Dragon Engine, Saskia the Unyielding, Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Looking to make something casual like my other decks and if you recommend another commander it must at least be .

I'm just kinda stuck on what I want to do with the deck right now... So maybe show off your own cool token decks please? Preferably something that might be a little less expected.

Unlife on Similar to Siege Behemoth

1 month ago

I’ve decided to rebuild my Saskia the Unyielding deck and I came across Siege Behemoth in my box of bulk. I liked the concept, especially with saskia and I wanted to know, are there any other similar cards out there? Anything that lets me deal combat damage even if creatures are blocked. Any color but blue

Thanks in advance

Hey, nice to see an infect commander list on here. Not sure if you’re willing to choose a different commander, because i think Saskia the Unyielding or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice might be better suited as infect commanders as well as giving you access to more colors. Blue is especially nice since it gives you cards like Blighted Agent and clones.

Nim Deathmantle and Mimic Vat might be nice ways to make sure you always have an infect creature to play with.

Viridian Corrupter is a great way to gain access to poison creatures, while preventing others from building up.

Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are nice lands with your +1 counter theme

Consider Golgari Signet to ramp and fix your mana.

Good luck!
