Saskia the Unyielding Discussion

legendofa on Zombie/Mummy Commander

1 day ago

There aren't any Legendary Zombies or Legendary creatures that interact with Zombies specifically at more than three colors. Morophon, the Boundless and Karona, False God are sort of generically tribal, and I would recommend Morophon over Karona. Outside of those, you start trading flavor for utility. Child of Alara works well with Zombies that can bring themselves back or like big graveyards, and Saskia the Unyielding , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice , and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder offer a couple of interesting options that can point your deck in a specific direction. None of them are deeply Zombie-ish, though, Saskia is much more Celtic (art)/Finnish (name) than Egyptian while the other two are purely non-historical.

1empyrean offers good suggestions for partners.

If he wants to stick hard to the Egyptian theme, check out the Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation sets, but there will have to be color compromises for something like The Scarab God .

Aeve, Progenitor Ooze I'd been in the mood for another tribal deck, and haven't been happy with my Saskia the Unyielding build for a while, but now, my problems are solved with 4C Ooze tribal.

Nerdytimesorwhatever: Initially I was leaning in the direction of Saskia the Unyielding , but I'm really liking the idea of Surrak Dragonclaw .

An instant-speed, uncounterable Primal Rage that makes the rest of the Tribe uncounterable, all on a beefy set of legs?! Nice..

The colors are pretty far from my wheelhouse, but that's part of why I like it..

Kjellma on "Quest" Decks

3 months ago

I am making two decks of a similar style, they "give quests" in the way that they will allow people rewards for finishing the "quest."

One had Karona, False God as the commander and focuses on Grothama, All-Devouring style ideas that either give rewards or make people want to kill the creature for some reason. Pursued Whale is another creature I am using to achieve this idea. This deck is more of a joke, hug, or fun deck style.

The second uses Saskia the Unyielding and Mathas, Fiend Seeker to be a more aggressive style of these quests. I am already finding curses to make other players fight.

What I need is more creatures that use something like Grothama, All-Devouring to either give rewards or make others fight to give rewards.

I am not sure if I want to use a lot of goad in the first deck, but I am willing to use it in the more aggro deck if there are enough good creatures to make it even more worth the others fighting each other to achieve these "quests."

Any help would be appreciated.

I would recommend using Tymna the Weaver and Tana, the Bloodsower (for Gruul colors) because Tymna does a lot of life manipulation just as well as Saskia the Unyielding (this is just a suggestion) but seriously, think about it.

As for potential alternate commanders, here are what I would recommend. My goal here isn't to necessarily power up your deck, but that would likely happen if you choose someone other than Brion. The addition of other colors can add versatility as well as variety--potentially leading to more fun. I feel like being able to play any giant (or at least more giants) would make for a truer giant-tribal experience and allow the deck to grow better as new sets and new giants come out. Also, when you're on a budget the addition to other colors will allow you to play better creatures and better utility without having to scrape the bottom of the barrel in Boros colors.

Five-Color Commanders:

Going for all five colors would allow you to play any giant across Magic's rich history and allow any utility card you could possibly want. This would be the best choice as you continue to play, as any upgrades or new giants could fit in the deck. Don't be intimidated by the mana base; five-color is easy on a budget.

Morophon, the Boundless - It's a giant! Technically. The anthem is cute and the mana discount is enormous. One of the best options for Giant Tribal. I have one for trade!! Highly highly highly recommended

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - Truly obscene power. He ramps when you cast him (making his commander tax kind of one mana instead of two!) and his ability to play three cards off the top of the deck is nothing short of perfect for a mana-expensive deck like Giant Tribal. Cannot recommend enough.

Kenrith, the Returned King - Another incredibly strong choice. He can give you trample and haste--both things big slow giants want. He can grow your team, he can draw cards, and he can bring back the expensive giants from the graveyard. The lifegain can be good too! A top-tier choice.

Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Jegantha, the Wellspring are passable but are completely outclassed by the three mentioned. Jegantha is a giant elk for what it's worth.

Naya Commanders

The addition of alone would both power up the deck and make it run smoother without having to invest in expensive cards. There are a bunch of great Giants in green on a budget and it seems that WotC is making more and more Green giants in modern times, compared to the old days, making it a safe choice when it comes to future additions.

Mayael the Anima - A fantastic and strong choice. Naya colors and a strong mana-sink for when your hand is empty. Having expensive giants is perfect for her ability! A top-notch choice. Highly recommended. Mayael's Aria is a fun card!

Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Hatch giants out of eggs! A really great way to cheat on mana costs. A pretty good choice and a funny one. I have one for trade.

Samut, Voice of Dissent - Granting haste to your team and being able to surprise-untap a giant to block an attack is pretty good utility. A good--but not excellent--choice.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil - A decent choice. Goading opponents' creatures would allow your own giants to swing in with impunity. I have one for trade.

Gahiji, Honored One - An all-right choice. The ability powers up our team and incentivizes your opponents to attack each other. It's a giant beast, for what it's worth.

Four-Color Commanders:

I'm not sure why one would want to run four colors when one could easily run all five, but there are two very interesting choices for generals in the Blue-less combination. Personally I find the Blue giants better than the Black giants though. None of the options for Black-less are any good for Giant Tribal.

Saskia the Unyielding - Her ability is no joke when it comes to smashing face. A good choice, but we can probably do better.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - Now THIS is an interesting commander combo. Make a sort of loose lifegain theme around Giant Tribal. If you want to have a truly unique take on Giant Tribal that nobody has ever seen, this may be the way. I have Ikra Shidiqi for trade, but not Bruse.


Oloro, Ageless Ascetic and Ruhan of the Fomori can be commanders, but I think they won't be very good for Giant Tribal


I would highly recommend running Morophon, the Boundless or Mayael the Anima as your general, with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Kenrith, the Returned King being equally as good--if not better (mechanically). You'll get to play more giants, better giants, and ramp into them easier--all while still staying on a budget. Also, these commanders actually facilitate giant tribal and a concept.

I'm really intrigued with the Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper too.

Potential Non-Boros Commanders: Show

VampDemigod oh wow, it must have really appeared out of the blue! Lol. It's a fun deck if you can get it swinging, but in control-heavy metas it can be brutally useless.

I'm considering revamping it to either Naya or even Saskia the Unyielding colors, just so I can get some better answers and lockdown to keep the Werewolves turned.
