Description

After too many edits, my saskia colored deck has seemed to have lost its way. This is an attempt to retrace my steps and solidify what I can do with every color but Blue. Token ramp, mana ramp, and all over aggro.

I'm seeing a few challenges for this deck.

  1. Your ramp is having a good foundation, but you don't have a very large chance of landing a ramp spell on turn 2, if I were you I would exchange the Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot for an Orzhov Signet and a Gruul Signet, while on the topic of mana, you are playing Hour of Promise that synergizes well with Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, putting both in play at the same time.
  2. Your victory conditions seems to be scattered all around, you have a subtheme with planeswalkers and Parallel Lives, you have a token strategy with anthems to boost them, you have Purphoros, God of the Forge to kill people with tokens coming into play, then you have a couple of creatures which don't seem to support either of those strategies, you appear to be wanting to do too many different things.

I would consider replacing Saskia the Unyielding, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Iroas, God of Victory, Faith's Reward, Erebos, God of the Dead Beacon of Unrest, Xenagos, God of Revels, Ever After, Lurking Predators, Grave Titan.

A few suggestions on what to add instead could be something like Martyr's Cause, Retribution of the Meek, Fight to the Death, Obzedat's Aid (it can return planeswalkers), Blood Artist, Aura Shards Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Requiem Angel

In my experience, focusing on one main strategy and maaaybe one secondary strategy, is the way to get consistent performance with a deck.
