The Knowledge Pool — Saskia the Unyielding

Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool. It’s been a little while, but last time I teased a deck based around Helm of the Host, and after much tinkering I’ve come up with a list that I believe will abuse it to the fullest extent.

60 to 100 — Valduk and the Ultra Budget Brew Takeover!!!
