You're missing a few big heckin cards.

Cephalid Constable is miraculously underrated, Drumhunter is a personal howling mine AND a mana dork, Elvish Visionary draws a card, Experiment One and Pelt Collector are excellent one-drops, Fertilid is awesome repeatable ramp, Forgotten Ancient is bat-shit insane with four players, Gilder Bairn is both adorable and quite functional, Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable negate, Kalonian Hydra is hilarious (and it's a 0/0 so I think you can trigger Ezuri's ability before his ETB), Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is a powerhouse, Managorger Hydra get too big too quickly for most opponents to handle, Novijen Sages is a nice draw engine, Permeating Mass is fantastic in this deck, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are such a good combo, Plaxcaster Frogling is great protection, Scavenging Ooze is awesome (Meren is in my meta, idk about you), Seedborn Muse is good anywhere, Simic Manipulator leads to fun shenanigans, Sporeback Troll, also good protection, Tuskguard Captain is perfect evasion, Ulvenwald Tracker is about as good as green removal gets, and Wild Beastmaster is another Cultivator of Blades, but a little less for a little less mana. Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty are a couple gems, Bred for the Hunt, Doubling Season, and Hadana's Climb  Flip are great for countered up dudes, Rhystic Study, which should honestly go in every blue EDH deck, Cloudstone Curio it's better than Panharmonicon in this, Strionic Resonator is also probably better than Panharmonicon here. Also a Thran Dynamo might do ya good in the mana department.

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Characters Who Have Not Yet ...

Interesting topic. As wizards did more and more kawigawa characters in the last commander sets in Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami, I really hope for more of those. Yuriko and kaseto aren't original characters, but still pretty cool. I'd love to see kyodai, the humanoid embodyment of That Which Was Taken. She's a lookalike of michiko konda and the child of o-kagachi. What a great card that would make. Awesome.

good artifacts to have regardless of the theme is/are the availible signets. In your case, it would be Golgari Signet. Other nice mana rocks include Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Charcoal Diamond, Commander's Sphere, and Darksteel Ingot. There are spells that allow you to search for lands, such as Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation, and Hour of Promise. The article you mentioned was wrong, as the only card you can have multiple copies of are basic lands. If you wanted to keep with the artifact theme, then run Artifact Creatures such as Darksteel Colossus, Triskelion, Noxious Gearhulk, Verdurous Gearhulk, Duplicant, and Solemn Simulacrum (AKA sad robot). There are many more and if you want check some out you could use this link http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&type=+[%22Artifact%22]+[%22Creature%22]. Just remember that not every one is a winner and you don't have to run all of them. If you wanted to replace your commander, that's entirely your choice, but unfortuatly, golgari isn't known for making creatures unblockable. the Simic commander Kaseto, Orochi Archmage and the Arzorius commander Sygg, River Guide gives creatures unblockable. If I choose a new commander, I would choose Kaseto because it's less restictive, and while you can build it tribal, it can also have some other strategy. The youtube channel "Tolarian Community College" has guides on both of these commanders if you decide to go this route and get stuck. EDHREC (https://edhrec.com/) is also a great tool for building a commander deck.

legendofa on How Much Could Kamigawa Be ...

DemonDragonJ A red/white legendary Samurai in a future supplemental project I would guess is very likely, maybe within the next couple years. The last couple Commander sets had cards like Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami, and you point out Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow. WotC does listen to the Kamigawa crowd, even if they don't appear to be going back in the near future, and creating a Commander-able Samurai would please a lot of people, from Kamigawa people to flavor people to people just looking for another option in those colors.

Flooremoji Would it work better as target player, or all opponents? What's your suggestion? And adding flying works. I have to admit, I'm still thinking in broad strokes, not in individual cards just yet, aside from exploring possible abilities as mockups.

Storywise, I've had an idea before: kamigawa is having a conflict between staying true to their traditions or opening to change. The soratami, who were always closest to the kami, are the keepers of tradition, while especially the orochi are up for change as they benefit a lot from being able to visit minamo (as Kaseto, Orochi Archmage suggests). With such a story, you could easily argue for all tribes reaching into new colours.

Tuminaro on Snakes making a comeback!

Thanks for advice skeletonbarrel Definitely adding Prowling Serpopard to the sideboard! I opted to keep Blight Mamba cause of the great synergy with Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. That, with any other boosting (Seshiro the Anointed/Beastmaster Ascension) those poison counters will be a back up way to victory while tokens/other snakes stall.

Any opinion on putting in Herald’s Horn or Door of Destinies?

Thank you for the sugestions! I miss my old +1/+1 counter deck a little bit so I'm definitely going to rebuild it again, and add some upgrades to it so I can actually win (it couldn't win so I made Kaseto, Orochi Archmage edh)
