Seshiro the Anointed Discussion

Memphismaymagic5 on There's A Snake In My Boot

1 week ago

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!

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH

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.

Darkcoco23: I'd rather have Parallel Lives TBH - Doubling Season only doubles the -1/-1 counters on my creatures, and is one mana more.

Nice choice for a commander. One that is not played very often.

I checked your list and I came up with these suggestions:

My personal favorite deck I am playing these days is this deck. It's very strong and can punish people really hard. But this is also a competitive build, not suited for each meta. Feel free to give it a visit and I always appreciate an upvote :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise on any of your decks, then you can always summon me or post on my wall for help.



NecroPony on Hapatra, Stax of Snakes

1 week ago

I know, next to nothing about stax, and it seems a bit weird, but Seshiro the Anointed, perhaps. Card advantage and a buff for your snakes. Additionally, the altars; Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar.

I couldn't resist making a list for Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons either! ;0)

Have to suggest Seshiro the Anointed, Necroskitter, Soul Snuffers, and Cauldron of Souls.

Happy counting!

Naksu on My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

This looks really fun, I actually wanted to build a modern snake deck after the latest blocks, but havent got to it. As this is pretty budget, I won't recommend any expensive cards, but Hooded Hydra is something I would suggest playtesting. It could be an overkill, but has really great synergy with Seshiro the Anointed and ramp. +1 for the cool snake theme tribal!

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.

Here's way too long of a list of suggestions now that I know you're interested in Changeling Scarecrows.

If you have any more questions, I should have eaten my supper by then. Best of luck!
