Creature — Beast
As long as Siege Behemoth is attacking, for each creature you control, you may have that creature assign its combat damage as though it weren't blocked.

Siege Behemoth Discussion
27 minutes ago
In my R/G ramp deck, I run a package with Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Magus of the Candelabra, Burning-Tree Emissary, Utopia Sprawl, Garruk Wildspeaker, Xenagos, the Reveler, Gruul Turf, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. While not super budget-friendly, I really think Nykthos is an invaluable addition to any ramp deck. I use the mana for Planar Portal into a single copy of Primal Surge, letting Cyclops of Eternal Fury, Siege Behemoth, and Pathbreaker Ibex finish the job, but the world is pretty much your oyster when you can produce dozens of mana every turn. I'd also recommend Fierce Empath as a means for finding your favorite fatties. I use him for 1 copy of Primeval Titan to find Nykthos or Kessig Wolf Run, 1 copy of Regal Force to restock my hand, and 1 copy of Greenwarden of Murasa if my portals get destroyed.

Wonderful suggestions both of you! I appreciate very much the thorough suggestions
I love Blasphemous Act but I'll have to find another way to fit it in. Dragons and dragon-based decks are heavy in my group. So I still want my two anti-flying tech cards. After your suggestion, I switched out Sandwurm Convergence with the cheaper Gravity Well.
Praetor's Counsel is perfect suggestion for this deck. The other two do not fit my game plan as well, but I'd love to pull back all my wolves near end game.
Decimate My lord I had no idea this existed. Instant-add !
Super important point on the draw power. Having more options in hand will make this deck a beast! Lifecrafter's Bestiary I actually had in here intially, but after thinking about it I don't think it plays well with how I want to play the deck. Harmonize I did not include initially, but I love the idea. It's beneficial that I have cards to let me cast it with flash.
Curse of Stalked Prey I LOVE the flavour. If I wasn't hurting for space this would be an instant add-in. As is, I fear it may be too single-use and slow-building for me to consider (Compared to Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension right) . Wolfir Silverheart seems to single-use as well without means to bounce him for further soulbonding

Deserves an up-vote for what I presume is A Tribe Called Quest reference in the deck name alone. However, this does look like a pretty badass deck in its own right. I echo the Craterhoof Behemoth suggestion. If I had to choose between my behemoths, he'd get the nod over Siege Behemoth. Also, why so little sorceries? The Gruul color pie has some good ones that I'd think would find a home in this deck. I'd add Blasphemous Act so you have at least one sweeper (I'd remove Sandwurm Convergence to make room) and then any one of or a combination of Eternal Witness/Creeping Renaissance/Praetor's Counsel to get stuff back from the graveyard. Decimate is also an excellent Gruul card, though you do have some like it. This will certainly give me some inspiration if I decide to do a werewolves deck, which has always been at the back of my mind since I have so many of the cards. Awesome stuff, man!

Since you're running a beast theme, why not go for Siege Behemoth? Could do well :) Also I would recommend Drumhunter and Iroas, God of Victory. Probably, I'd also try and replace Sylvan Scrying with Rampant Growth.
Have fun playing!

Savageborn Hydra to manasink, Craterhoof Behemoth and Siege Behemoth for lethal.
Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip comes in as a creature. Greenwarden of Murasa and Eternal Witness for recursion.
If you get more ETB elves you can do Wren's Run Packmaster for a mana outlet. Examples: Elvish Harbinger, Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves, Reclamation Sage, Oracle of Mul Daya (I know you have a couple already)
Look into the LEVEL UP cards from a few years ago or Level up cards from recent Commander Releases for good mana sinks.

Thanks very much for your feedback! I think Pathrazer of Ulamog is going to be added due to its synergy with It That Betrays. I very rarely hard-cast in this deck, so I like your Artisan of Kozilek and Spellbreaker Behemoth suggestions, but I think I'll save these for another deck :) Especially Artisan of Kozilek; he would fit well in my Meren deck. Spellbreaker Behemoth might find its way into an idea for a Marath deck I've been brewing for a while.
Spearbreaker Behemoth and Siege Behemoth are both cards I do not own yet, but they could prove wonderful in this deck. I'd choose Spearbreaker Behemoth over Soul of New Phyrexia, because my opponents rarely let me keep more than three creatures at any one time on the battlefield anyway :)
If I had to choose cards to drop in favor of these three cards, I'd probably drop Engulfing Slagwurm (because it's nice, but not THAT nice), Karametra, God of Harvests (because I'm not hard-casting that much anyway and this deck has more than enough ramp as it is) and Asceticism (because I also have Privileged Position and Archetype of Endurance in here and both are a bit better anyway).

Love the idea of cheating out big creatures. I run a similar concept using kruphix as my commander.
Also might want to consider Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, and especially Siege Behemoth which may end up winning you the game itself. Even Soul of New Phyrexia might work. All have synergy with creatures of 5+ power specifically.

Hey! Let me start off by saying that I sympathize with your budget as a college student and all decks I make are budget! I used to have a Saskia deck, but changed it into a Tana, the Bloodsower saproling sacrifice with Ravos, Soultender partner. It's quite different than this deck, but in the same colors! I might be able to help with a few cards. I had contemplated doing the very same thing you are doing.. Saskia infect is a great thing. Without further adeu, lets' get started.
What I have noticed about magic card prices is that the more "generally good" or universal the card is, the higher the demand, the higher the price. For people like us, we can make a deck good towards one specific thing and still have cheap cards become a part of a good deck.
I think that Polluted Delta could come out of the deck. it's not terrible, but is a little rich for our blood, we can do better. I would put in a Vivid Marsh. In fact all the vivid lands would be good options for you, running a 4 color deck. I assume that the reason you have polluted delta in the deck is because you own the card, I do that a lot too. My suggestion.. sell the polluted delta and get all of the vivid lands! While they enter tapped, your deck doesn't care about speed as much because you by nature are speeding up the game with your infect win condition.
Sacred Foundry as well, obviously a good card, but let's see if we can do better with check lands like Clifftop Retreat. Same thing with Godless Shrine, we can replace that with Isolated Chapel. While you have to have lands of either color, you would be surprised how often that comes into play untapped! I can count on one hand how many times it has entered tapped.
for your lands I also recommend Prismatic Omen
I feel like Angelic Destiny, while a good card, not quite what you need in this deck. I see that it is a one hit kill, but let's see if we can focus on getting your deck a little more unpredictable and efficient through instant buffs. Your creatures get through blockers and ALL THE SUDDEN THEY DO LETHAL as you throw down some quick buffs.
here's a list of those. You can decide what's best.
I couldn't get the hyperlink to work in the preview, you'll have to copy and paste it, sorry.
Behind the Scenes pairs well with that strategy. Let your creatures get through unblocked and then drop a bomb on them with buffs.
Strionic Resonator will let you copy saskia's "it deals damage equal to its power to chosen player" to either the same person or to someone different entirely. DOUBLE KILL!
Siege Behemoth makes sure your damage gets through.
Pathbreaker Ibex could be good for ya as well.
it might be worth giving your creatures hexproof, since your creatures are the obvious target for spells. I would go with Asceticism for starters.
I love your Darksteel Mutation, that's just a great commander removal.
You could put in Dragon Throne of Tarkir and then any buffs you throw on sasia could go to all creatures.
if you ask me, you are running a lot of mana with all your land and the mana rocks, and yet your average cmc is just under 3, which will lower even more with the instant buffs you would put in. maybe go down to 34 lands? Play it by ear.
Well, great deck! you can go further to focus it in without breaking the bank, but it's scary already for sure! You got my upvote!
