ZendikariWol on The Legend of Saskia

Name suggestions:

Like Sisay, but More Colors

Back in My Day They Were Just Creatures!

Those Who Forget History are Doomed to Lose to it.

RIP Kamigawa (Legend Tribal)

Saskia: the Stuff of Legends

Big Sassy's Legendary Horde (note: Big Sassy as a nickname for Saskia can be used in any of these names)

Legendary Night at Saskia's Bar

History Has its Eyes on You (it's a musical reference, if you don't get it)

That's all I got for names- this one was tough! Now, suggestions:

Adun Oakenshield is okay recursion, Anafenza, the Foremost is a good body, Captain Lannery Storm is good ramp, Dosan the Falling Leaf is good against control, Grand Warlord Radha is great ramp, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is good recursion, Isamaru, Hound of Konda is a gud boi (and a one-drop), Kambal, Consul of Allocation is good taxation without representation, Karador, Ghost Chieftain is SICK and also very flavorfully appropriate for this deck, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is great draw, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is a good body, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good protection, Ravos, Soultender is good recursion, Rhonas the Indomitable is good but you'll have to see if you like God-Eternal Rhonas better (I like OG Rhonas better unless your repeating God-Eternal's ETB), Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is good block deterrence, one of the Tajics ( Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Tajic, Legion's Edge ), both are good bodies, Tana, the Bloodsower is good body + chump blockers, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is good recursion, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is good fun, and Zurgo Helmsmasher is a surprisingly fun political piece.

Also, I'd really recommend you include planeswalkers, and also you're running two Selvalas and two Odrics.

@AlwaysSleepy: Thanks. Based on such a combo, I guess the only replacing card I'd use to replace Night's Whisper is either Tormenting Voice or even Wild Guess ? All three have a CMC of 2, or am I missing out on something? I'll have to check to comment to be sure...

Hmmm... it seems as if both replacements just require a single discard from the hand, & the rest is in the clear; much like how Night's Whisper works for this combo. Might as well have an extra card to discard for either Rummaging Replacement. So, yeah. Thanks very much, sir; after a lot of such I've been through; I think it's about time I start my Mardu deck project. But what the heck to use as a CMDR of such design? Queen Marchesa is good, but not what I'm looking for. Zurgo Helmsmasher is ridiculous on its own, but still not what to use as Voltron (Not what I want.), Oros, the Avenger ? nope. Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? Chaos (This really deserves a symbol here for commenting, & other things of the like. Same for the Planeswalker Symbol on the Same Planar Die.) so far is too hard to control, & is potentially better off as something else entirely that's NOT Angel Tribal. Kaalia of the Vast is more akin to Mayael the Anima as they tutor for very powerful creatures w/ crazy effects. Not much closer. Not going to allow anymore Partner duos. Ol' Edgar Markov means a no can do for me; Eminence was never going to last long enough anyway. Licia, Sanguine Tribune just wants to feast on blood at an extremely huge mana cost, but this deck has little to nothing about life gain. One option remains: Mathas, Fiend Seeker . I wonder how he can truly work... Thanks again! ^_^

@SynergyBuild: Lulz. Never thought I'm saying this, after I found how a damned Accordion works here, I had to decide to do something like this as a Wincon in (Mardu). Though what CMDR to use is something I still dunno… Not Counting Mayael variants Kaalia of the Vast , or Aggro Zurgo Helmsmasher , Vamps w/ no support for this (Any Mardu CMDR of C17's Vampire Tribal.), Weenies Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , much less Aikido Queen Marchesa . Same also goes for Partner CMDRS. One Wincon in question allows Doomsday , but I wanted an all Package. I wonder what I can use for this; as I've little options; maybe Mathas, Fiend Seeker could be good? Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? I doubt Oros, the Avenger will do anything... Ideas?

Xenephrim on Kaalia of the Vast EDH

Not trying to sound rude, but the deck seems really unfocused outside of just getting big, free creatures.

Oni of Wild Places + Rakdos the Defiler : When Oni of Wild Places is in play, bring Rakdos the Defiler into play tapped and attacking with Kaalia's ability. Since you didn't declare Rakdos as an attacking creature, you ignore the first half of his ability. Deal damage, opponent sacs half their non-demon permanents. At the beginning of your next upkeep, use Oni's ability to put Rakdos back into your hand to repeat the process.

Kaalia was one of my first EDH commanders and I loved her, but she draws way too much attention at the table. So I've started going with commanders who don't have such a huge presence. One guy I know runs a bunch of land destruction/discard with her to make sure that opponents have a really hard time responding to Kaalia and her hoard.

If I can offer some advice for things to take out...

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls - Not a bad card by any means, but in Kaalia unless you plan on randomly resurrecting your opponents' creatures, this probably won't do much.

Utvara Hellkite - Not a bad card on it's own, but it just really shines in a dragon tribal deck imo. Again, a card I can't imagine you getting a whole lot of mileage out of.

Dragon Tempest - Again, another card really focused for dragon tribal.

Natalbee, I used to love Scrying Sheets back in its standard days; unfortunately, it has wasted many a mana in commander more often than not.

I don't have a Sunstone as of yet, but I'll definitely get one. As for this deck, however, I don't think I can make room for this artifact. I would need to also include a land recursion package to make it viable. Maybe it will find a home in a Green Pillow-Fort deck.

The reason I chose Oros, the Avenger over Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is threefold: I don't own a Tariel, I've been on a legendary dragon stint lately, and Oros's ability pairs fairly well Death Pits of Rath .

Deck looks sweet! Surprised you don't have a Sunstone or Scrying Sheets in there with your 20 snow lands. And why did you decide to use Oros over someone like Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? Seems decent with all the discarding. Just curious.

This deck actually started with a lot of commanders, chiri. Thantis, the Warweaver and Gahiji, Honored One were two big ones, but Mathas, Fiend Seeker , Queen Marchesa , Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Selvala, Explorer Returned , and perhaps my favorite (mostly because he's such an underrated political piece) Zurgo Helmsmasher are all incredibly fearsome and piles of fun. Not only that, but after the attacks are forced, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is a very neat fella to toy around with.
