Seshiro the Anointed Discussion

Ninelol on Ouchies

Here are a few cards I think you should add if you want to go down the Hapatra trail mindful some a loot right now >.< Harbinger of Night, Grim Poppet,Deity of Scars, Serrated Biskelion, Deadbridge Chant, Victimize, Grave Pact, Skullclamp, Dusk Urchins, Sudden Spoiling, Creakwood Liege, Krosan Grip, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Channeler Initiate, Seshiro the Anointed, Skinrender, Beastmaster Ascension

I can add more later but the gist of it is using Sac and reanimate to abuse ETB. Then using overrun effects like Seshiro and Beastmasters ascension to roll over the cleared out boards. Also using lots of sac reanimate lets you use a more toolbox approach similar to Meren decks!

One thing that I've noticed with a lot of Snake decks is that they produce an incredible amount of mana with all those shamans, but have nothing to really spend it on. Added to this is the fact that most creatures are legendary.

You could try Mirror Gallery and then adding more copies of your legendaries like Seshiro the Anointed, so you can spend all that mana on something. Orochi Hatchery might also be a good mana sink.

Blowfly Infestation with Crumbling Ashes is nice.

Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction,etc. can also help ensure the spread of your counters.

Quillspike is nice for removing the counters that end up on your own creatures and also forms an infinite combo with Devoted Druid which is already in the deck.

Also since she specifically make's snake tokens, Seshiro the Anointed might be ok but i'm not as sure about that one

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.
