I'm not a fan of Ohran Viper also.

Those eyes give me the creeps.

Hey, welcome to MTG! It's always nice to see new players, how do you like it so far?

EDHREC is always a good website to help make a deck, even if the format isn't EDH. In this instance, I went to the tab under commander, then looked at each of the Atarka pages (because they are most likely to have dragon-like theme or some suggestions that are good for it's colors. Most of my suggestions would come from those two pages, but the highlights that I would put in are Savage Ventmaw, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Dragonlord's Servant; I would also put in something like Harmonize, Krosan Grip, Blossoming Defense, etc. just in case.

My second problem is the early game: always have cheap creatures. In my experience, a lot of Modern players will win with combat or having an overwhelming force to stalwart the game until they can win. I would suggest something like my favorite Modern card ever or Ohran Viper, they are cheap and can discourage an attack. This is probably the biggest problem, do some research into early game creatures, then add three or four of em.

Lastly, take out all the black. The amount of red in this deck demands it. If you're worried about the haste enabler of your Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, consider Mass Hysteria, Fires of Yavimaya, or Dragon Tempest; if you want to keep the creature board wipe, consider Blasphemous Act, Fiery Confluence, or Savage Twister.

Hope this helps, I'm always here

I think i use Ohran Viper in a Snow themed deck but i forgot that she's a snake too :P. I considered Patagia Viper too, but i didn't knew what to take out. Maybe i'll take some Sakura-Tribe Scout or Sakura-Tribe Elder, maybe one of each?

and thanks for the support, i'll check your deck too :)

First things first: i know of a player who would approximately like to have a look at this: Snakerush

And now to what i have to say about this: i really like what you've done here. One thing i found to be very important with snakes is to not overload on twodrops. Your numbers look well though. Ohran Viper and Patagia Viper might be useful for you. Besides this, maybe you want to have a look at this: My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

Ohran Viper is a clever snek, if you need more of those.

Honored Hydra is a big snek, if you need more of those.

Orochi Eggwatcher makes many little snek, if you need more of those.

Prowling Serpopard is a resilient snek, if you need more of those.

Skullwinder is a political snek, if you need more of those.

I love the poison counter sub-theme. Very cool deck, sir!

Interesting deck idea!

Adding Grave Titan might be a nice idea as he works as a finisher for putting games away. He even has the decency to stay on the Deathtouch theme.

Acidic Slime would also be good for taking out pesky trinket cards you opponent might play.

Finally Mwonvuli Beast Tracker will let you search up whichever creature you might need quick (like an Acidic Slime).

Ohran Viper doesn't quite have deathtouch, but his ability to draw you cards really makes him worth mentioning.

RyugaKuroyami62 Yeah, I can understand taking out Cultivator of Blades as it doesn't also grant trample. I replaced it with Corrupted Conscience. In addition, I agree with Ohran Viper being a sub-par creature. I wanted to utilize the draw card portion of the viper. I replace the snake with Hornet Queen. I am still not sold on Slip Through Space. Although, I do have room to spare in the creature count. Maybe... any more ideas?

_Kane_ Well, I've playtested the deck some, and I'd say Cultivator of Blades didn't really do a ton of help that Thrummingbird or Hardened Scales couldn't already do. I also found questions with Ohran Viper, since it would be so easy to kill, that I found little use in having it in the deck.
