     Hey sigmaa! Glad you like Saskia the New Blood!

     Saskia is super awesome! Not sure how competitive my advice will be; generally speaking my decks are built for a tabletop friend meta, but I could certainly point out a couple of high value cards for Saskia!

     Being four colours, there is a plethora of spells and creatures you can use and all manner of strategies to employ. I settled on Infect as it wasn`t a deck type that existed in our meta yet.

     Saskia is all about creatures, and there`s a few that work particularly well. Sower of Discord is great both as a finisher and political tool, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Shalai, Voice of Plenty & Dauntless Escort to keep your creatures safe, and Knight of New Alara to make your beaters even... beatier.

     Knight of New Alara is a star player and a frequent grab with Eladamri's Call. The power of this card in a multi-coloured Combat Damage deck cannot be understated.

     Otherwise having fast access to all four colours of mana is obviously a big priority. I could prattle on for some time about land cards, but I won't. xD Instead I'll suggest a few cards that work particularly well in this style of build: Fellwar Stone, Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Birds of Paradise, Springbloom Druid, Exotic Orchard & Reflecting Pool.

     Happy Brewing! :)

Kogarashi on How does Neko-Te damage to ...

1 month ago

Neither.

Neko-Te has an ability that triggers when the equipped creature deals damage to a player. In your example, Lightning Elemental will deal 4 damage to your opponent, which will trigger Neko-Te's second ability. When that triggered ability resolves, your opponent will lose 1 life. The Elemental is not dealing an extra damage, nor is its damage replaced.

It's important to note that the life loss from Neko-Te's second ability is not damage. If something cares about a player being damaged, this ability will not trigger that. For instance, Sower of Discord will not trigger from the Neko-Te life loss, only from the damage the Elemental did.

A few things I’ve noticed about the deck.

Your infinite mana loop is slow and board dependent. Try incorporating the Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith Combo to really crank out that mana on her activated ability.

You run a lot of creature steal but no sac outlet to prevent the creature from returning to your opponents.

Two infinite mana loops in the deck would be beneficial towards running Torment of Hailfire

Thran Turbine helps reduce your commanders activated ability.

Archfiend of Despair is great, but works even better with Havoc Festival , Sower of Discord , and Heartless Hidetsugu .

Since you’re running Tainted Strike , Glistening Oil gives infect and the negative aspect of it can be controlled with the Unspeakable Symbol and AEther Snap . Phyresis also grants infect. This strategy works exceptionally well with your already built in Dauthi Embrace and Rogue's Passage .

The build is off to a good start, but isn’t very stream lined towards consistency. Polluted Bonds seems like a filler. Stormbreath Dragon is a bad mana dump that is only relevant if opponents draw a large hand and don’t discard down. Situational at best. I’ve only seen Pyrohemia and Pestilence become relevant in jund dino fight decks and devastate your field to much because this deck isn’t geared towards their abuse. You have enough deterrence built in already.

Braid of Fire in the maybe pile would be amazing early game and worth wasting a tutor you grab it since you’ll then have free draws once your commander is out. Speaking of tutors, add Diabolic Intent to sac a creature you stole while tutoring for your wincon pieces.

Use Dockside Extortionist and Treasure Nabber for more ramp. I see a lot of destroy artifact spells, but there are other advantages to be had don’t you think?

TangoWithTojo on Onslaught of the Scarab God

So Scarab God is one of my favorite commanders so you're in luck. I have a lot of recommendations for you. Lets start off with creatures. Creatures: Though you want mostly zombie tribal, you do want a few largely impactful cards that you can discard into your graveyard and recast with The Scarab God . Some cards I'd recommend are Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sower of Discord <--- This card in combination with Paradox Haze + Wound Reflection make for an extremely quick kill for 2 people, Noxious Ghoul , Ghoulcaller Gisa , Eternal Skylord , Gleaming Overseer , Undead Alchemist , Corpse Connoisseur , Lord of the Accursed , Lich Lord of Unx and Gisa and Geralf

Lands: First of all your Crypt of the Eternals isn't legal in your deck as it has red mana. Now lands are usually the most expensive part of a deck but also the most important part of the deck. If you're willing to cough up the money or want to get proxies of them here's my recommendations: Cabal Coffers , Command Tower , Crypt of Agadeem , Fabled Passage , Field of the Dead , Myriad Landscape , Nephalia Drownyard , Phyrexian Tower , Polluted Delta , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , and Volrath's Stronghold . If you have a way of making a proxy I'd also recommend Underground Sea because this card is ridiculously expensive. Then equalize your basic lands a bit more with 13-14 swamps and 7-8 islands.

Sorceries/Instants: My recommendation is remove all of your instants and sorceries with the exception of From Under the Floorboards , Syphon Flesh , Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse . Now simply replace them with Restless Dreams , Mind Bomb and Careful Study so you have more discard outlets.

Artifacts/Mana Dorks: Most of your artifacts and mana dorks are good but could use some tuning. My recommendation is to swap Dimir Locket with Dimir Signet . Swap Prismatic Lens with Arcane Signet . Swap Star Compass with Commander's Sphere . Swap Charcoal Diamond with Darksteel Ingot . Then as an alternate win condition, you can toss in a Mindcrank and Strionic Resonator to mill your opponents as they take damage and then allowing you to double Scarab Gods ability.

Enchantments: You're missing out on some amazing potential with enchantments. Keep all of the ones you have but think about replacing Monastery Siege with a Rhystic Study or The Immortal Sun . Now I'm just gonna list off a lot of enchantments for you that work wonders in this style of deck. Pick and choose which ones you want: Tortured Existence , Zombie Infestation , Curse of Disturbance , Phyrexian Arena , Grave Pact , No Mercy , Dictate of Erebos , Liliana's Mastery , Open the Graves , Rooftop Storm <-- this one is a must have. Wound Reflection and finally Grave Betrayal . Your Endless Ranks of the Dead is new to me btw and I'll definitely be adding that one into my Scarab God deck. That thing is nuts.

Lastly your Maybeboard, the only cards I'd recommend putting in is Torment of Hailfire and Grave Titan . The rest are either unnecessary or do more harm than good. Though if you do want a planeswalker I'd highly recommend Liliana, Untouched By Death . She synergizes with the deck extremely well, especially if you have Rooftop Storm on the battlefield because now you can just recast everything from your graveyard for free.
