Actually, tapping down Emrakul, the Aeons Torn with Matsu-Tribe Sniper totally works. Emrakul has protection from colored spells. Once your sniper is on the battlefield, it no longer counts as a spell but is instead a permanent, and Emrakul’s protection no longer matters.

Funkydiscogod But Emrakul, the Aeons Torn have protection from alla colors...so i can't use my Matsu-Tribe Sniper to TAP it.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your advises

Matsu-Tribe Sniper is probably best in the sideboard as an answer to Little Miss Aeons Torn and Lingering Souls .

I've been wanting to brew up blue/green snakes for a while. My idea was to discard Sosuke's Summons to activate Vivien's Arkbow , and find a snake, to get the all the Summons back from my graveyard ready to discard again. Bonus points for finding a Mystic Snake in response to an opponent's spell.

In my experience, Orochi Eggwatcher is underrated powerful: as soon as it flips, the game will end: you attack, and sacrifice each blocked creature to pump unblocked creatures.

I can see a combo if can have a Frozen AEther on the batlefield, and a Cryptic Command to tap their creatures you can then start the attack with Shisato, Whispering Hunter until they're dead.

Hi everybody, i'm new in this forum, and my first thread is about my first deck. The idea of this deck is based on Kaminagawa's edition Snakes, who most of them, when inflict damage to a creature, make them TAP and don't UNtap during the opponent's turn, plus using some blu sorcery or instant who can TAP other creatures. The ultimate combo that i have in mind for this deck is to play Shisato, Whispering Hunter , maybe equipped with some Aura or Equipment who give him the protection from abilites or spell, or being unblockable (like Whispersilk Cloack), and then strat attack the opponent, using blue Istant or Sorcery to TAP his creatures (who will not UNtap until Shisato will be able to continue to attack), maybe with Nature's Will in play to also TAP his lands.

The problem is...what type of creatures and spell i need to have, to achieve this result? I've already have this deck, with some snakes who give me mana, like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Coiling Oracle or Orochi Sustainer , some combat snakes like Matsu-Tribe Sniper , Matsu-Tribe Decoy , Sosuke, Son of Seshiro , Seshiro the Anointed , Patagia Viper , Lorescale Coatl or some big snakes like Patron of the Orochi or Hooded Hydra ... but how can i build my deck to work fine? With which type and how many TAP spells?

If you have any suggestions, i'm all listening

Scattershot Archer is almost always better than Matsu-Tribe Sniper, unless you have a fat flyer-heavy meta. Killing all Spellstutter Sprites, Faerie Miscreants, etc

Either one works I suppose. If I were you I would cut Leafcrown Dryad for that early game aggro. 4 mana for an aura that gives +2/+2 and reach is not the greatest in my opinion, especially considering that you have Elephant Guide which I think is more effective at that. If you want flyer hate I would just put something in the side if I were you (some effect similar to Matsu-Tribe Sniper - which is great faerie hate, too). Also consider Kird Ape and maybe adding some more multicolored creatures to squeeze value out of Naya Hushblade and Jund Hackblade. If you have multicolored things Jund Hackblade effectively becomes the best possible version of Gore-House Chainwalker and Borderland Marauder.

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.

Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).
