jakeelephant006 on Saskia, Ultimate Baton-Passer

An effort to make Saskia (not just yours, all Saskia builds) a decent commander:

Objectives: centralize the deck around a theme of infect and ways to put as many poison counters on as many players as one can in one attack.

How to accomplish objectives: pull cards that detract from the theme and add cards that support the theme.

Cards to pull: Things that just like attacking. Cards like Zurgo Helmsmasher, Savageborn Hydra and maybe even Tymna the Weaver. Things that are only good cards in their color(s) like Primeval Bounty, unfortunately you should also probably remove some ramp and some removal or cards that are borderline supporting the theme.

Cards to add: Things that have evasion or give evasion like Whispersilk Cloak, things that have infect or give infect like Phyrexian Hydra, Putrefax, or Phyresis, and things that double damage like Furnace of Wrath or Dictate of the Twin Gods or Bitter Feud.

Saskia has been performing disturbingly mediocre of late and after further investigation many of the cards have dubious interaction with each other and with their commander. This is the trouble with Saskia. I don't know if these suggestions will work or not, but they're my best effort at trying to make this a deck to look too when considering how to build Saskia.

Acidic Slime needs to be a Bane of Progress; Eternal Witness needs to be a Greenwarden of Murasa or Paleoloth; Savageborn Hydra should be a Primordial Hydra;

The following should be switched for better shit:

Apocalypse Hydra, Myr Battlesphere, possibly Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths, Penumbra Wurm, possibly Purphoros, God of the Forge, possibly Skyline Despot (I know I suggested it but I still don't like it), Thought-Knot Seer because you only have four lands that will allow you to cast him

things to maybe put in:

Lurking Predators for like the third time, Greater Good

Markov Blademaster, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Spiraling Duelist, Savageborn Hydra and other creatures with double strike benefit from your equipment both because they deal more damage but they deal damage twice per turn giving you 2 triggers off of your equipment.

Although their abilities aren't super relevant in your deck, the only double strikers at 2 mana or less in your colors are Scourge Wolf. Viashino Slaughtermaster, Warren Instigator. I'd stick to the 3 cmc or greater ones for your deck.

This reminds me of my first deck that I ever built from scratch! I even had a lot of these exact cards in it! Awesome color combo with a great playstyle. You, my friend, have picked a great starting point. Let's see how I can help...

I'll try to keep budget in mind for my suggestions, you probably aren't looking for a $200 competitive deck.

First off, Savage Ventmaw is an awesome casual-play card. Combos great with Aggravated Assault for infinite combat phases, if your playgroup is cool with those(mine had a soft ban on infinite combos.)

I'd replace Timber Gorge with Rugged Highlands if you can get your hands on some.

I may also replace Font of Fertility with some mana creatures. Llanowar Elves/Elvish Mystic and Zhur-Taa Druid would be good for this deck, I think.

Also, for your deck, I think Fires of Yavimaya would be more effective than Maze Rusher, but good idea adding something to give haste, that'll definitely come in handy.

You may want to run some stronger pump spells like Become Immense and Aspect of Hydra for late-game.

If you have a few extra bucks to spend on this deck, there's some really cool big hydras like Primordial Hydra, who you can pick up for a little over $5 as of right now, and Savageborn Hydra who is under $2.

Hope that helps! Definitely let me know how this deck turns out.

I considered it, but I can't really find room for it. I might replace the other Savageborn Hydra, but then I'd have less mana dumps for all the excess mana.. It's not as useful in this deck since it wouldn't be the primary wincon, as I provide trample to each creature through other means. Thanks though.

I actually traded Atarka, World Render for Savageborn Hydra so I had a more versatile double striker.

She was very painful while she lasted though.
