Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

Hypothetical question while you're on the subject of agroo: If Saskia the Unyielding 's two unique abilities were changed to "Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to an opponent, it deals that much damage to each other opponent.", would that be enough to bump her up to Competetive in your opinion?

(Bonus alternative: "Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to an opponent, Saskia the Unyielding deals that much damage to each other opponent." so that you can easily combo with e.g. Tainted Strike .)

I considered Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, but I am current using him in my Saskia the Unyielding politics deck. Though, on second thought, he is my favorite of the dragons. I will consider further...

Uril, the Miststalker and Rafiq of the Many are a little too conventional for me, and a lot too cEDH. It's not that I hate competitive, but the two can often lead to no interaction, and therefore little fun.

Bruna, Light of Alabaster and Sram, Senior Edificer both belong in the ninety-nine of any enchantress deck, but I'm not sold on them as commanders. Mostly I want to run three colors.

Non blue aggro is literally Saskia the Unyielding.

I have a deck with Saskia the Unyielding that has 100% legendary creatures and can be surprisingly aggressive. The non-creature cards are dedicated to the triple R - ramp, removal, recursion.

Check it out at The Legend of Saskia.

Create another 4-color command for a legendary creature (Saskia the Unyielding, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis.)

Boza on Do fog effects prevent loss ...

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 ...

2 months ago

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.
