Saskia the Unyielding

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

Vigilance, haste

As Saskia the Unyielding enters the battlefield, choose a player.

Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, it deals that much damage to the chosen player.

Abaques, I'd forgotten about those creatures, I'll have to include them. I was bouncing between Saskia the Unyielding and Nethroi, Apex of Death, but now I'm thinking maybe Kethis, the Hidden Hand would actually work better, even if he has no combat abilities.

legendofa on What makes a deck-worthy commander?

All of the following is completely subjective and personal opinion. As long as you're having fun, you're doing it right.

I like commanders that are flexible, but still have a mechanical theme. Too flexible, and you get Kenrith, the Returned King 5-color goodstuff. Powerful with lots of potential, but no real unity. Too narrow, and you get Sefris of the Hidden Ways dungeon crawling. Very flavorful, but the decklist basically comes 80% pre-built.

Something like Falco Spara, Pactweaver or Saskia the Unyielding is my preference. You have a direction and a goal, but how you get there is entirely up to you.

I had taking alot of thought about this and I've finally cone to a conclusion.

Saskia the Unyielding is the one for me. I love attacking with creatures. And she just says deal combat damage... I've always wanted to build her but never did.

Pretty nice list!

I have three suggestions:

Just in case anybody doesn't want you to play these two as partners, maybe have Saskia the Unyielding in here to still play the deck. Wulfgar of Icewind Dale is another copy of Isshin's ability. And Angelic Exaltation speaks for itself.

Unlife on Rare commander build?

3 months ago

My decks tend to lean more toward the rare builds then the rare commanders. In terms of standouts, I've got a Gahiji, Honored One that is a Primal Surge superfriends deck, and my Saskia the Unyielding is ooze tribal. With the addition of companion and parter to commander, I really like building within restrictions, so my Kraum, Ludevic's Opus/Tymna the Weaver/Obosh, the Preypiercer (all odd wheel/combo) stands out as a rarer commander build

If I had to take a guess, I'd say my rarest commander is mutant tribal deck helmed by Louvaq, The Abberant, which my playgroup is kind enough to let me run.

Unlife I like it, it would be harder to predict that I'm sitting across the table from Saskia the Unyielding ooze tribal :)

Unlife on Who is Your Favorite Tribal …

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is one of my favorite tribal commanders at the moment, but not for dwarf tribal. I've got him helming a phoenix tribal deck for that little bit of extra damage.

As I think about this, some of my favorite tribal commanders do not actually share the creature type of the deck itself. I've also got a Saskia the Unyielding ooze tribal and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder dragon tribal that I love playing.

legendofa thank you for the card recommendations and advice! I think your recommendation for Saskia the Unyielding would be a fun command. Additionally 4 color command would be a fun challenge as well. I’m trying to restrict myself by doing a solider theme deck since I’m doing commander theme tournament that only uses solider creatures with my friends.
