Ohran Viper Discussion

Why the Ohran Viper? You don't have it listed in your card-by-card. Do you get into combat so often that it's worth it?

Ohran Viper is perfect for this deck; not only is it a snake which means it gets to take full advantage of Kaseto's ability, but it also has a relevant combat damage trigger.

Seshiro the Anointed gives all snakes a massive power/toughness boost, and now all your snakes have a Curiosity stapled to them.

Sosuke's Summons will gradually grind out plenty of snake tokens for chumping/buffing/attacking with.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer means all your creatures that deal damage to your opponents will provide you with massive amounts of mana, especially if they're snakes that have been buffed by Kaseto.

Orochi Hatchery is a great mana sink and lategame card that'll help stabilize your board or create enough extra snakes to swing for the win.

Patagia Viper has evasion and is a snake, which is something that doesn't come by all that often. It also generates a couple chump blockers for yourself.

Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro taps for mana and gives your snakes a nice toughness boost.

Sosuke, Son of Seshiro gives your other snakes a good power boost, and gives your warriors deathtouch.

Skullwinder is a good Eternal Witness variant that goes with your deck theme.

Sakura-Tribe Scout accelerates your mana and can drop a powerful land with an ability out of nowhere.

Ohran Viper is an ok card but if you just want card advantage or to search for your combo pieces i would suggest adding black if you can, and a mana base isn't to bad for black either in terms of price. no the combo is perfectly fine but you just needed another support colour.

Thank you tysrob53! what do you think about the Ohran Viper option for the same purpose? You can make propositions for a colour change. Although it would probably multiply the prices by 3-4 just for a reliable mana base... I thought of black or red for a moment though.

So you would like to take the core combo out? In a budget environment it is highly effective due to the prevalence of basic land cards. don't you think?

Keen Sense is cheaper than Snake Umbra. Mask of Memory would stick around longer than either (should a dude die) and you can use something like Creeping Renaissance to get all the discarded cards back (if that's a concern).

Elder Pine of Jukai could be interesting if you had more spirits or arcane spells (looks like you have 3 total so probably not a great fit). There could be some other spirits or arcane spells worth swapping in...a couple that seem kinda cool or would otherwise fit your theme: Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Carven Caryatid, Eidolon of Blossoms, Forked-Branch Garami, Haru-Onna, Iname, Life Aspect, Nourishing Shoal, Permeating Mass, Primordial Sage, Rending Vines, Strength of Cedars, Wear Away. Not trying to change up the vibe, just saying...

Other straight up draw cards to consider: Abundant Growth, Elemental Bond, Fecundity, Fa'adiyah Seer, Fruit of the First Tree, Garruk's Packleader, Glimpse of Nature, Hunter's Insight, Hunter's Prowess, Kavu Lair, Krosan Tusker (just to cycle it), Life's Legacy, Nature's Resurgence, Nissa's Revelation, Ohran Viper, Sylvan Library, Zendikar Resurgent.

Viridian Revel could be interesting given you seem to like artifact hate. And then there are all the Enchantresses, if you want to start loading up on enchantments, e.g. Verduran Enchantress. I think there are 4-5 available, which could become some serious card draw off simple cantrips like Abundant Growth.

This looks like a fun deck...might try my hand at a build if I have enough of the cards ;-)

Dauntless Escort - Can be replaced with Selfless Spirit to match your P/T theme. Or both for safety.

Chaosphere + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa - Only creatures with reach can block your non-fliers now.

Akki Lavarunner - Could be good to eke out a post combat hit with red creatures and it gets mean with Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Raid Bombardment, etc

Spawnwrithe - Can get out of hand quickly

Hanweir Garrison - P/T matches, creates more matching friends.

Precinct Captain - More pseudo unblockable friends upon not being blocked.

Akki Underminer | Dawning Purist - If you want to be mean.. err.. control your enemy.

Blinding Angel - Deny combat

Ohran Viper - Card draw!

Bow of Nylea - Any available blockers will need to make a choice unless they have preventatives. (first strike/protection/etc)

Blade of Selves - To spread the love on 2+ people matches. Works grossly well with the 'on attack' or 'enter the battlefield' token spawners. (Be careful though as this equipment usually makes you enemy #1)
