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.

Blah blah obvious cycle blah blah

Don't do the cycle. Create a card that you would put specifically in a commander deck around Saskia the Unyielding.

I was thinking maybe zombies because they have so many great lords and silly things like Rooftop Storm. But I'm also wondering if maybe you just name slivers instead? Like slivers already have pretty much all the best lords I could possibly imagine. So what if things that aren't slivers were turned into slivers to gain those benefits?

I'd include things like Aurelia, the Warleader and Saskia the Unyielding along side other great attackers with unique effects. Pile the sliver effects on them.

Idk if you meant to add them to a different deck, but Tribute to the World Tree and Ozolith, the Shattered Spire aren't legal in this deck unfortunately, since Isshin doesn't have Green in his color identity. Now if you changed your commander to be Saskia the Unyielding it'd be totally fine.

I once was told that the best way to design a 4c card is not to ask what it should do, but instead start with what it can't do.

Take a card. It lacks . So anything typically associated with is off the tables. You're not going to be drawing. It likely won't ha e flying, unless it's on-theme, suppose as a Dragon. It won't counter or mess around with activates abilities. It's not going to care about artifacts.

Now, what can it do?

Jund, Mardu and Naya all love combat.

Rakdos and Golgari all love sacrifice.

Really, the only color pairing here that significantly cares about gaining or paying life is Orzhov.

So you're likely going to want to do something heavily combat focused. For example, Saskia the Unyielding. :)

Teth, Empress of Skies

Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon

Flying, haste

During your declare attackers step, if Teth, Empress of Skies is your only attacking creature, you may untap each creature the defending player controls with flying. If you do, gain control of them and they gain haste until end of turn. Those creatures must attack that player if able.

As the war lingered on the ground below, an ominous storm approached. The sun was blotted out as darkness enshrined the land. But there were no clouds in sight, for this was a storm of wings, rage and fury.

I love Saskia the Unyielding as well, and I think she is an underrated commander! You have a few cards here I don't have in my build, but will definitely consider (especially Adeline, Resplendent Cathar).

Something that I don't see a lot of people doing, but I find to be super effective, is using damage-doubling effects, such as Gratuitous Violence and especially Fiery Emancipation. With Fiery Emancipation on the field, a 1/1 would deal 3 damage to one opponent, and then 9 damage to Saskia's chosen opponent - so a total of 12 damage! Saskia alone will deal 36 damage (3x3 + (3x3)x3 = 9 + 27 = 36)!!!

I run Gratuitous Violence, Fiendish Duo, and Fiery Emancipation in my Saskia deck because of how incredibly effective they are at increasing the power level.

Also, for me, I noticed that Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are incredibly pivotal in enacting my gameplan, so I run more creature tutors such as Eladamri's Call and Worldly Tutor, and I recommend the same for you.

Lastly, because you are playing so many small creatures, I highly recommend something like Pathbreaker Ibex or the classic Craterhoof Behemoth, since they turn those small early game creatures into finishers.

I enjoyed your deck, and the Latin flair is fantastic!

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.
