It would indeed! I am trying to get this together before the weekend to test it out IRL at the shop. At the moment I am having a hard time balancing between all the things I want to do.
-1/-1 counters are the focus for sure, but do I have a win condition? My main strategy is simply to keep the board in check and plug away when I'm able while hopefully staying innocuous to my opponents. Triumph of the Hordes is game over for one player most times for sure, but something like Beastmaster Ascension or maybe even Seshiro the Anointed would help out a lot in the long game. I feel like Seshiro would take this deck in a different direction though.
I feel like this deck might be TOO focused on the -1/-1 counters. But I would like to test it out before I start swapping things out for other Golgari staples.

AwezomePozzum ; Seshiro the Anointed was on the list before, but was removed. With the exception of the commander, the deck didn't contained many snakes. This decklist focus more on -1/-1 counters and ways to use tokens. Shisato, Whispering Hunter still there because of it's effect that fit a stax subtheme.
It could be fun, but I think almost half of the deck would have to be built differently.

As an example for snake tribal, what about Seshiro the Anointed?

The new Prowling Serpopard could be a fun addition.
Also consider 2x Seshiro the Anointed, it has a high cmc but you have some mana acceleration with Orochi Sustainer and Sakura-Tribe Elder, so it might work. Lotus Cobra can also help speed up the game.
Last cards I can think of is Wasteland Viper, probably the best 1-drop for this deck!

TheRedGoat: shrug You said it yourself. She shuts off all of my infinite combos, and generally speaking I'm okay with putting -1/-1 counters on my creatures in exchange for snakes. She used to be in here, but after she messed up my combos one too many times, she got the axe. With regards to the cuts you mention, I can definitely see what you're saying with regards to Seshiro the Anointed, but Shisato, Whispering Hunter is a surprisingly good tempo piece if I have a snake or two (and I almost always do). Flourishing Defenses is still in testing, but there's a few cards I'd want to add beforehand.
