Description

"A massacre? It is a mercy we grant them. This way they won't freeze to death."*

Adapted my Saskia deck to mono-red with my waifu lovisa as commander, who now has the sexiest reprint ever.

Need some help finding cards with snow in the art, as I want to make this as snowy as possible!

*While I absolutely love Lovisa's new flavor text, Relentless Assault 's flavor text; "Mercy? Mercy is for the playground, not the battleground." has me kinda conflicted, so I guess we're going for a merciful massacre?

Have you considered Boldwyr Intimidator? It fits your warrior theme and his hair is snowwhite.A bit high on the curve maybe.

Just a few thoughts, because I love theming decks.

Barrage of Boulders, Bring Low aren't great in commander but they have the snowy art you seek and aren't dead cards.

They may not fall into Lovisa's bonuses but cards like Goblinslide, Dragon Fodder (from dragons of Tarkir) and Hordeling Outburst have snowy art and make tokens. Which would of course be this:

Thanks for the thoughts!

@M@sticore: I just took the Boldwyr Intimidator out because while making cowards does seem very very nice, I find him too high on the curve. he does help dealing with blockers so I might put him back in if playtests reveal I need more dodges.

@LittleBlueHero: Barrage of Boulders is already in! Not only does the art fit, the stones we throw actually disables blockers - which could turn lethal if used at the right time. Bring Low is .. not useful at all, and way too expensive for a bolt.

Goblinslide, Dragon Fodder, and Hordeling Outburst did cross my mind as I recently acquired them for my goblin deck (EDH Gigglin' Goblin Grenades!). While they don't get Lovisa buffs, they would help with Goblin Rabblemaster, Shared Animosity, and Coat of Arms.. But I don't really want this to turn into a goblin deck as well.

Will definitely be picking up some of those snow goblin tokens :).

With your commander in play Boldwyr Intimidator makes a decent political card. Giving an opponent's creature haste and +2/+2 isn't too shabby.

Hadn't thought about the political aspect.. still seems very mana-demanding though, but should be very doable in the Late-game.

I might try it, but if you'd randomly discard the one you searched ... I can see this happen to me, I have terrible luck haha.

If you ever get the chance, Sword of Feast and Famine along with Aggravated Assault would give you infinite combat phases.

There's also Berserkers' Onslaught and Rage Reflection. Both give all your creatures double strike.

I don't play with infinites so I'll be sure to avoid that combination, the extra combat turn cards I have now are really only a last resort / luck of the draw top-deck miracle and I don't aim for it to happen.

As for double strikers, I've tried and removed Berserkers' Onslaught because it wasn't working as well as I'd hoped. I might give it another try later.

Onslaught while not snowy taps down a blocker when you get an attacker on the board.
