Kashi-Tribe Elite

Legendary Snakes you control have shroud. (They can't be the targets of spells or abilities.)

Whenever Kashi-Tribe Elite deals combat damage to a creature, tap that creature and it doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.

Grind on Xyris but You are the Snake

5 months ago

this deck looks like a total blast to play! i want to play it! haha.
Parallel Lives seems like more snakes!!
Kashi-Tribe Elite will give your commander shroud.
Rancor on your commander seems like recurring trample + 2 more damage and 2 more cards to draw is good!
any thoughts about Shisato, Whispering Hunter? seems a little staxxy but you have the snakes.
also Sosuke, Son of Seshiro is another way to buff your tokens.
feels like maybe hasty snakes would be good? Fires of Yavimaya

Thanks for suggestions. I've got a few questions though:

  • What is the reason to put Kashi-Tribe Elite? Because it seems to be blocking Kaseto and other legendaries from getting affected by my own spells and (especially) abilities. Also locks me out sometimes from surprise Commander damage win.

  • Isn't any enchantment better than Sosuke? I find him a little to weak in my meta, gives only +1/+0 and Deathtouch to iself...

  • Is Snakeform really that good? I found it underperforming most of the time besides the fact that it can replace itself with another card

Also thanks for that combo you've listed - I'm definitely going to put it in my deck :)

its pretty self explanatory if you read the card. Kashi-Tribe Elite specifically says "combat damage". damage dealt by combat. by an attacking creature.

Would Kashi-Tribe Elites tap effect work with cards like Rabid Bite, Clear Shot or Viridian Longbow? Or are those cards considered effect damage?

Ga, as seguintes cartas eu aconselho a tirar: Akki Drillmaster - Voce nao tem bichao pra dar impeto; Akki Raider - Voce nao destroi lands;Akki Underling - Seu deck e rapido, nunca vai ter sete ou mais cartas na mao; Orochi Sustainer e Sakura-Tribe Scout - Voce nao precisa gerar muita mana num deck rapido; Soratami Cloud Chariot - Muito caro, foge da estrategia e o efeito e meio bosta; Kumano's Blessing, Lifegift e Seed the Land - horrvel; Blinding Powder - Nao faz sentido com o deck (voce quer matar rapido, nao controlar);NO SIDE: Dense Canopy e Sunder from Within - perfeito, os outros 3 - horrivel;

Cartas que voce pode colocar: Akki Avalanchers - aggro, warrior e fortinho, apesar de suicida; Blood Rites - poderia ser bem util com tantas criaturas;First Volley - complemento de dano e arcana para unir;Soulblast - Pode ser... Glacial Ray - dano mais apelao do PB Kamigawa (une e e barato);Goblin Cohort - muito apelaozinho, funciona com bastante criaturas;Honden of Infinite Rage e Honden of Life's Web - olhas os combinhos com um monte de criaturinhas e dano;Kashi-Tribe Elite - Protege suas cobras lendarias e ainda e um guerreiro cobra fortinho, cheio de fuleragem;Kodama's Might - Pump verde indispensavel, une em arcana ainda;Lure - Kill condition facil com tantas criaturas;Oni of Wild Places - Poderia ser um bichao pro deck;Path of Anger's Flame - Olha esse pump geral, arcano...como que tu nao coloca isso num aggro vermelho?Patron of the Akki - Patronos sao muito apeloes: este aqui e perfeito pro seu deck;Sakura-Tribe Elder - Esse cara pode atacar, bloquear e ainda pegar um land em resposta: apelaozissimo;Serpent Skin - Regenerar pode ser muito util num deck aggro; Stampeding Serow - Barato, forte, alem de voltar cobras pra mao pra combar com as Sosuke's Summons;No-Dachi - Gosto muito desta kataninha...Manriki-Gusari - Pode ser MAIN, pode ser SIDE, para aggro e muito bom;Shuko - Pumpinho rapidao;TERRENO DUPLO Pinecrest Ridge: se tem, por que nao usar? Eu usaria.

Agora voce pensa e acerta ai... faca suas escolhas, ajeite a curva pelos graficos e try again. Olhe de novo no Gatherer se achar necessario. Veja o custo total das cartas. Da pra deixar ele bem legal.

nice update! I don't know if you like Kashi-Tribe Elite, Skullwinder but they would do fine in your deck

No Ohran Viper?

Kashi-Tribe Elite might also be interesting, seeing as he protects your general and a few other of your creatures, too.
