"Saskia the Unyielding : Hitting two birds"
Virgilio F. De leon Jr.
Saskia the Unyielding is one of the new Legendary creatures coming out in Commander 2016 and boy am I excited for this one. The 4 colors that this commander has is notorious for producing tons of tokens especially White and Green. So what makes me excited about this one you ask?
Saskia the Unyielding is the magic version of Julio Valiente with a jungle bolo shooting one bullet through it and killing 2 opponents at the same time. If you don't get the reference (my age is really showing here) goggle Lito Lapid in his physics defying exploits as Julio Valiente and laugh all you want.
So how does Saskia the Unyielding do this particular trick? When he comes into play you get to choose an opponent. And get this , whenever a creature you control deals damage to an opponent that same creature deals damage to the chosen opponent.
Picture this for a second. You managed to create 10 million tokens with Presence of Gond and Midnight guard. I know what you are thinking with that many tokens you could just attack all of your opponents and win but that is not the point of the blog hahahaha. So anyway you could split the army attacking 5 million to the opponent on your left and another 5 million to your right. The opponent right in front of you begins to laugh at the lapse in judgement until he or she see's Saskia the Unyielding in play and then is erased from existence by the oncoming 10 million token damage. Ah living the dream.
So now that I am wide awake again what do you think of Saskia the Unyielding? Would you choose him over the other New Commanders? Keep on Brewing. Keep on Playing.
