l13199l Thanks for sticking around! Makes me sad when green doesn't get the rep it deserves. Oakhame has been a phenomenal draw engine and has yet to cost me 4. I guess if my meta stopped playing green I'd swap Ohran Viper back in.

notes: you have a lot of small creatures that you have to waste turns on buffing, you have a lot of card draw and not a lot of ways to keep all those cards, you have a lot of small synergies with merfolk/snake, but not enough to warrant having them IMO, could be better suited more focused on winning. cuts: Trollbred Guardian , Overrun , River Sneak , Experiment One , Coiling Oracle , Patagia Viper , Triton Shorestalker , Jace's Ingenuity , Ohran Viper , Verdant Confluence , Ezuri's Predation adds: Cultivator of Blades , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Triumph of the Hordes , Reliquary Tower , Rancor , Doubling Season , Awakening Zone / From Beyond , Wirewood Symbiote , Hadana's Climb Flip, Sudden Substitution , Devoted Druid , Temur Sabertooth , Bramble Sovereign , Thrummingbird , Tezzeret's Gambit , Faerie Artisans , Stubborn Denial

I would say 1v1 games are unfavorable for Marisi, but it's still a decent body that silences the opponent during combat. And you still force utility creatures to attack leaving opponents in difficult situations . If you want to play explosive 1v1 matches, you should look into the new Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin (just imagine with Claws of Valakut or Stoneforge Masterwork haha) or Omnath, Locus of Rage . But against regular match ups I guess Marisi stands some chance.
But thanks for the interest! I hope I have inspired you on something

This deck should be named "Battalion of snakes" lol. Totally awesome and deadly. My favorite card was Ohran Viper , if I block it, dead, if I take the hit, you draw a card, WTF!
Have you tried going monogreen? You could easily cast Kaseto with the help of Abundant Growth .

Have you considered splashing black or white for removal? Then you could add Path to Exile and On Thin Ice or Fatal Push and Dead of Winter . To stick with the snow theme, Ohran Viper would probably work in place of Thrun or Hooting Mandrils. I went with a BUG build myself, check it out: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/winter-wonderland-modern-snow-deck/

In Modern Horizons, given the all of the cards are spoiled now, I think Snow is a real deck.
Based Green, while splashing white and blue, this list has a lot going for it.
The Manabase isn't bad. Between Prismatic Vista and like 7 fetches (3 misty, 2 Windswept, 2 Flooded), along with 2 plains and 2 islands, 4 forests, and a Scrying Sheets , that manabase works well, because this list has a lot of ramp. Mouth of Ronom , Frostwalk Bastion , Boreal Shelf , Artic Flats, as well as some other lands are considerations, but I am not a huge fan.
Ice-Fang Coatl and Ohran Viper are card draw/removal, but On Thin Ice and Gelid Shackles are strong answers too. Glacial Revelation is the strongest card in the deck, while Ambominable Treefolk is our massive beater.
Diamond Faerie is a secondary option as a finisher, my rough list runs 2 mainboard. It can close out games.
Icehide Golem is another quick beatstick.
Simple list, ramp, draw, removal, and beaters, but all of them are well above the normal rate.

Additionally, I think a mono-green list and simic list may have legs too.

Glissa, the Traitor was my first Budget Commander League deck.
I primarily built it, without infinite combos, to participate in this league.
I really enjoy the First Strike + Deathtouch, it's an amazing combination.
It was originally a Modular build, around Birthing Pod , then it slowly transitioned into a primarily deck, now I'm trying to move toward more drawing to be able to ramp lands out to have more consistency with Mind Slaver .
Because of the restriction on budget Mtggoldfish.com at $49.58, so it evolves and changes as the prices of cards shift.
Currently, it's core strengths:
Control, sometimes I control the creatures (effectively) of all 3 opponents at the same time. When I get an Executioner's Capsule lock it can be pretty fun.
Recursion, it's good, gets the Artifacts recurring and utilized properly can prosper
No infinite combo, most of my other Budget Commander League decks have build in infinite combos (eg. Brago, King Eternal , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death ) or one shot kills with damage / commander damage ( Heartless Hidetsugu , Animar, Soul of Elements ).
I found ramping into the 10 mana required to recur the Mind Slaver was too slow (1 hour time limit on Budget league games), so instead of just increasing ramp (through artifacts), I've increased the draw. ( Ohran Viper for example)
Damage output, was good at keeping creatures off the board, but didn't have enough offense to do 3 players x 40 damage in the 1 hour, plus I was mitigating other players ability to damage each other. This is what led to the addition of Bonehoard , Nighthowler cards. I lost Blood Artist due to it's price escalating, which sucked, it's key, but I've added Poison-Tip Archer , which is no Blood Artist but he also has Deathtouch and Reach, plus instead of 1 opponent, he hits all opponents.
Glissa, the Traitor is still one of my favorite commanders, she has her strengths, has her weaknesses, she doesn't overload on abilities like Infect (which she could), so I very much enjoy playing her. Golgari () doesn't have enough combos to play cEDH, but in a Budget league, she is an excellent deck.
I have been trying to more move towards Deathtouch as well wherever I can as well, since it kind of plays towards that.
I've been playing this deck for over 4+ years, and never dismantled, only changed as the ebs and flows of the prices increased. If she was $100, she could be much more lethal.
