Saskia the Unyielding Suicide EDH

Commander / EDH*




Here's the catch for playing this deck: You have to choose yourself when Saskia enters the battlefield. It doesn't matter that you can choose other people. This is a suicide deck. You win, or you die trying.

Win Conditions:

Get yourself to 0 life without dying with the help of Platinum Angel or Phyrexian Unlife, then play Repay in Kind or use Soul Conduit.

Put Transcendence, Immortal Coil, or Demonic Pact into play and give them to unsuspecting opponents with Harmless Offering. When has generosity ever hurt anyone?

OR! Best yet: Stuffy Doll + Phyresis + Blasphemous Act.

Wall of Blood + Near-Death Experience.

Stuffy Doll + Pariah or Stuffy Doll + Pariah's Shield. Then deal the damage to yourself, and repeat for a while until you finally target an opponent OR Guilty Conscience + Stuffy Doll to insta-win.

And if you just want to end the game in a draw... Heartless Hidetsugu + Phyresis

I've played this list a couple of times and overall my friends and I find this deck to be extremely fun. It is such a different strategy that it mixes up some game play.

Please leave an upvote +1 if you like it and comments on changes I can make, or shenanigans I can add (most importantly). Thanks.

This deck is amazing man my favorite deck I've seen in awhile, I can't get enough! How about Sylvan Library for the sweet draw on top of it's suicidal flavor? And maybe Bazaar Trader as an extra Harmless Offering effect?

I am going to copy and hopefully brew up some things with added ideas to this deck, I would love to chat and hear any input you might have about it! Phyrexian Reclamation seems like good suicide recursion. Toxic Deluge is great suicidal board wipe. Necropotence is fantastic suicide draw. Hatred seems like it belongs. Erebos, God of the Dead and Greed both seem solid. Slaughter is great suicide removal. Snuff Out seems fitting.

Hey man back again I can't stay away. Cruel Bargain and Infernal Contract want to see play in a deck like this, casting them at 1 or 0 life would be awesome! Wretched Confluence belongs. Soul Channeling is flavorful protection for Platinum Angel.

Cruel Bargain and Infernal Contract cost three black... In four color... That could work though if I put in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Like the other two. Great to see you here again bankrupt_on_selling
