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 OR Guilty Conscience + Stuffy Doll to insta-kill someone.

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.


I've made some small changes in the past month, please feel free to leave additional suggestions.

How about adding Approach of the Second Sun? With the draw power of this deck that could be an easy win!

I will, I just haven't gotten a hold of one. The set is so new, I don't know anyone who has one yet to trade. But once I get it, I will add it lol

Ok got most of it today but found a card from the new set that might help.Champion of Rhonas to get the creatures out. Of course I got Approach of the Second Sun but I don't know what to replace tbh.

Oh and the deck didn't do so well yesterday cause they made me cycle my hand every turn.

Oh that sucks JokeEmperor. Definitely don't play this deck if there is a lot of hand disruption. I want to add Approach of the Second Sun too but like you I'm not sure what to take out, and Champion of Rhonas could be very helpful. I luckily opened one at pre-release
