Ambush Viper for sure. Bounty is the next worst card imo

With a 7cmc general, I'd suggest going up at the least 2-3 lands. Sprouting Vines is fine if you have an active Burgeoning, but in most games I think running a Cultivate/Farseek is going to provide more immediate value.

Urza's Incubator is not getting you good value currently. If you name 'snake' it only lowers the cost of 12 of your creatures (Coiling Oracle is the 13th snake but unaffected). Descendants' Path wants you to have more creatures to get the most value from it. Spellbook is also really not needed with your Tower/Vessel already giving you no maximum hand size.

I don't get Jace, Memory Adept/Mindcrank. The milling doesn't seem to add to your goal which looks like snake beatdown.

Winged Coatl and Ambush Viper give you more removal while adding to your snake theme. Seed the Land is an interesting token option. It is symmetrical, but your deck should be built to take advantage of snake tokens better than others.

Ambush Viper could probably go.

saber4734 you have in the deck so I would stick with the basics and run some Lightning Bolt's. just doesn't have any good removals against anything but flying creatures. That said I like to use creatures for removal in like Ambush Viper, just try and pair it with something like Life goes on for the best effects. Also Fog is a great way to buy some time in decks.

I don't have enough flyers already. Also, Ambush Vipering (by the way, I could add this one too!) my opponents is just a great feeling. They'll lose they most valuable creature on a stupid deathtouch guy or waste a removal. Either way it's a good deal for me.

As explained in my description, Kiora put me over the top several times and I'm not getting rid of her for this reason. I wasn't so sure about her in the beginning either but experiences have showed me I should keep her.

Simic Sky Swallower is not a vital threat, indeed. I juste like the card but I guess it could leave its spot for Husher :)

Since you mentioned getting some more expensive cards I feel Asceticism could be beneficial. Since none of the equipment you are running adds any toughness and could leave creatures open to removal.

Some downsides are that it's mana cost is a bit high and you do already have a lot of creatures so losing some shouldn't hurt to bad.

Also how often do you think Heir of the Wilds ability will trigger? maybe find another creature with death touch? Ambush Viper Death-Hood Cobra just off the top of my head. At a quick look, it looks like you would need to equip multiple things to one creature adding a few redundancies and losing a little value from each card in doing so.

Hi and thanks for commenting.I made some tweaks after playing Magic 2014 on my PS3 and getting into some challenges but I think I may have made the deck a little bit worse. Oakenform on a Deadly Recluse is cool, though.

Ambush Viper stays because I think of it as blue's "Counter target creature spell."I added the Young Wolf because I got frustrated not having any creatures able to block until I had more mana (in the VG at least).

I dropped most creatures to 3 or less, and Archweaver to 2. It's just too costly. Howlgeist costs less and might do more.

StopShot on Card Suggestions for a theme ...

Background: My favorite time of the year is Fall for various reasons, the biggest is the change of the leaves and scenery and the drop in temperature. Ever since I went off to college far south of where I grew up it's been summer all-year long and I can't ever escape it, so I miss my favorite season.

I want to build a casual 60-card deck with as many cards that depict the fall leaves or autumn forests as I can. (A little bit of snow is okay.) I want this to be a budget-friendly deck, though if you know of an expensive card I'd like it to be suggested so its at least on my radar.

Cards I have in mind are: Trip Noose , Ambush Viper , Autumnal Gloom  Flip , Edge of Autumn, Lambholt Pacifist  Flip , Woodland Patrol , and Young Wolf. If you know of any other cards that fit this theme please make a suggestion. Promos with alternative art that fit this theme are welcomed to be suggested as well, thank you. (Cards outside the color green may also be suggested as well.)
