Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Discussion

Kaseto, Orochi Archmage to make your infect creatures unblockable and pump Blight Mamba. Rishkar's Expertise to draw cards from your high power creatures and get a free cmc 5 or less card. Throne of Geth for proliferate and a sac outlet for your artifact infect creatures in case they would die from blockers. Trailblazer's Boots for evasion. High cmc but Increasing Savagery seems good with the +1/+1 counters theme. Prowler's Helm for evasion.

For unblockable you could utilize Thassa, God of the Sea, and Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. Kaseto has the added benefit of being able to target someone elses creatures, so you could be real sneaky about it, and force another player's creatures through on an opponent if it will help you.

With kaladesh not out of standard yet, another artifact set (which new phyrexia would definitely be) will probably not happen for another four years, except maybe the esper part of alara 2. Ravnika is a very popular plane, and wizards knows we love multicolour sets. Theros 2 might also be a thing soon, as the cycle of tripple-mono-coloured (steel leaf cgampion and the like) creatures in dominaria heavily hint at this.
Personally, i'd love a return to kamigawa. As the story of the original block happened like thousand years before original mirrodin, kamagawa will definitely not be the same. Storywise, there actually are some possibilities: what has happened with Myojin of Night's Reach after gaining a pseudo spark and bringing Toshiro Umezawa to dominaria? Also, there is tamiyo's orphanage. And i actually see the tribes get shuffled up colour and class wise, as seen on Kaseto, Orochi Archmage: they weren't blue originally, and not mages either. I also imagine something like the kami belief being nearly forgotten in a world that's struggeling between innovation and retaining conservative society values, probably hekd up by the soratami, who always felt closest to the kami. Just my two cents.

One more thing, your big hyrdras are cool and all but I think that you should add more consistency with Sol Ring, some interaction with Naturalize, Beast Within, and Cyclonic Rift, after all Kaseto, Orochi Archmage will be able to win games for you just by making him unblockable and one-shotting people. Also some protection for your auras like Counterspell so that when someone casts Bane of Progress or something of that sort you can protect your stuff.

Is the idea here to go for some kind of snake tribal? If it is, I'd recommend splashing some blue and useing Kaseto, Orochi Archmage as a commander.
If it's not and you're just interested in the tap ability of your current commander, then one card I can wholeheartedly recommend is Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. He's the commander I use in mono-green, and he's done some amazing work for me. With your current commander, you could even use him twice per turn!

I don't really think it is best to start with commander if you are new to magic, seeing the cards (besides the commander) are standard legal that would probably be a better starting place and require a lot less of an investment.
P.S Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is probably the best snake commander in my opinion.

DP87: thanks for the comment. It's true that more twodrops would allow me to be more aggressive, but there are two reasons for my decision to curve out instead of flooding the field with twodrops. Firstly, my main card is a sixdrop. I've had earlier version with a lot of twodrops, and it proved to be hard to stand my ground to decks that curved out. This led to situations where seshiro came down and i still lost because there weren't enough snakes left. Secondly, the deck's objective simply isn't straight aggro. I want to play long games where i can outvalue my opponents. If i need to finish faster, there is Kaseto, Orochi Archmage as a main deck way of doing it, and there are many ggressive cards in my sideboard.
Thanks a lot for the comment, it really had me thinking. Maybe i should build a second, more aggresive snake deck as well, but without seshiro. Interesting idea.

Hello there! I love these decks and I want to see more, so I have some suggestions for cheap generals to build the next decks,Triad of Fates is pretty funny and can run a fairly similar build to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed deck.Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is great fun and is a aggro commander, so nobody sees him coming and snake tribal has surprising amounts of support.Vorel of the Hull Clade Is a commander i always wanted to try but i am a tad strapped for cash most for the time.One i like is Tajic, Blade of the Legion, just because he is voltron tokens,(kinda like Temmet actually).I have no clue whether this helps or not XD but i'd like to see these guys built into cheap decks that are easy for me to throw together, love the work, goodbye!
