Ophiomancer

Creature — Human Shaman

At the beginning of each upkeep, if you control no Snakes, put a 1/1 black Snake creature token with deathtouch onto the battlefield.

Ophiomancer Discussion

SufferFromEDHD on Teysa's Minions

I like this list. A lot. Going to build my own this weekend.

Bitterblossom , Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Ophiomancer for the cheap and repetitive token generation.

Flesh Carver fits great with Teysa. Speaking of... Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts ?

Entrapment Maneuver seems really good in this strategy.

Hour of Reckoning better than day of judgment.

Dark Depths , Gargoyle Castle and Kjeldoran Outpost land tokens.

Rebuff the Wicked and Imp's Mischief Orzhov strong blue effects

Xynarth on Yahenni Aristocrats

I think Nether Traitor is a must in an aristocrat deck. Maybe you could also give Dark Prophecy a shot since it doesn't require the creatures to be non-tokens like Grim Haruspex does. With how much lifegain you're currently running, I wouldn't be too worried about the downside. If it really is worrisome, maybe throw Deathgreeter .

Other cards I'd consider are Smothering Abomination as well as Ophiomancer . Considering how Ophiomancer is written, you basically grant Yahenni indestructible permanently all the while keeping a 1/1 deathtouch chump blocker.

As for your other concerns in letting Yahenni hit your opponents, I'd recommend Whispersilk Cloak , Hot Soup , Suspicious Bookcase , Trailblazer's Boots and Loxodon Warhammer (I'd assume your Yahenni gets huge so it being blocked no longer becomes an issue, + massive lifegain is always fun).

Then again, equipments make for a more voltron based Yahenni, which is not what you're trying to do. Either way, thought I'd share :)

Have fun !

Hey, looks good, but consider more lands?

33 lands with only four additional mana sources is low with a five drop and a six drop Commanders. I suggest 38 lands with 8-10+ additional mana sources.

Cards to consider adding:

The artifacts that reduce the casting cost of black and white spells are good with Krav and Regna since they have a lot of colorless mana in their mana costs.

Other cards to consider:

If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Martial Coup is a nice board wipe for this deck.

Ophiomancer and Oketra's Monument would be good token producers in this deck.

I feel as if you should move Ghoulcaller Gisa from the side board and consider Elenda, the Dusk Rose especially if you add the pact effects.

I recommend cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One or Sun Titan over Reya Dawnbringer .

If you're looking for more token cards I'd suggest things like Spirit Bonds , Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Ophiomancer , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Secure the Wastes , etc.

If you want some other win cons I'd consider: Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Pontiff of Blight , Cathars' Crusade , etc.

If you want to ramp up your ability to control the board cards like Meekstone do the trick

Useful utility cards: Phyrexian Reclamation , Dawn of Hope , Crypt Ghast , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , Mentor of the Meek , Suture Priest , etc.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is another sac option

Nice list! Looking at it has made me want to revisit my own Krav & Regna list. One thing is confusing me though. How does the Mentor of the Meek + Ophiomancer + mana producing altar draw you a card for free every end step if Ophiomancer only makes the snake on each upkeep. Did you mean that on the upkeep, in response to the Mentor trigger you sac the snake token for mana and then draw the card? Just wanted to know if I'm missing something because I'd love to draw for free on each end-step and keep the snake token around for the turn in case of being attacked.

multimedia on Ertai says "No" Huge Changes

Hey, looks good. I don't see very many decks with Ertai as Commander.

Cards based on your budget to consider adding:

Reveillark and Guide can loop each other and reanimate a lot of creatures including Lullmage Mentor, getting value from reanimated creatures and then they can be used as fodder to counter your opponent's spells.

Reveillark reanimation targets:

Thief, Zur and Auramancer interact with enchantments. Thief steals all your opponents enchantments which you can then sac to counter spells. Zur can be a repeatable way to get enchantments, best of all he can search for Alarm.

Other cards to consider:

Most of these other suggestions are cards that can give you repeatable creature value, are discard outlets or enablers to get cards into the graveyard, enchantments that give you draw value when they are saced and budget lands that can/or always ETB untapped.

I offer more advice on what you can cut for some of these cards. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.
