Seshiro the Anointed Discussion

Flourishing Defenses in case your commander is getting too expensive.

I would also include a Zulaport Cutthroat because of the combo it or Blood Artist has with Blowfly Infestation.

If you're going the token route, consider Seshiro the Anointed for his pump effect and card draw.

Devoted Druid has some good value with this commander and Liliana's Influence is like a smaller scale Black Sun's Zenith. If you're running Soshiro you should definitely consider Seshiro the Anointed for all the card draw you get off it and Triumph of the Hordes could help you end the game.

Awesome! I am still in the process of making mine, actually. I like to playlets through the button here on Tapped Out before investing into the cards. I tend to make small changes often. What's funny about the big pump spells Beastmaster Ascension, Seshiro the Anointed, and Creakwood Liege is how they make attacking powerful, but they turn off the infinite combo at the same time. Haha, well it happens. Looking forward to that decklist!

Seshiro the Anointed and Patron of the Orochi are worth considering for decks like these, but depending on your budget they might be out of reach.

A few of those suggestions already on my wish list, especially Seshiro the Anointed & Blowfly Infestation

Flourishing Defenses is a good shout! Will definitely be adding that

Thanks so much for both comments!

goaliciousSadly Grind / Dust cannot be played in this EDH deck due to color identity.

I have been having some great fun with Hapatra myself. Here are a few budget (under 10$) suggestions for you:

And there are lots more but this should give you plenty to start.

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

whistle A lot of comments here!

hurricane219: Protean Hulk has been spectacular in this list, especially when I can Defense of the Heart for it and a sac outlet. I'd highly recommend it to any deck relying on creature-based combos ;)

gdm1989 (first comment): I've thought about including Asceticism before. However, I rarely have the 2 mana open to regenerate, and it doesn't protect token swarms very well. I wish I could find a slot, though...


Corrosive Mentor only affects my things in combat, unfortunately. My non-snake creatures are relatively squishy in this deck, so I don't want them dealing damage to creatures if I can help it (because they'll usually die in the exchange). It is disgusting with Nest of Scarabs, though...

Craterhoof Behemoth is a great card, and even neater since all of my combat-relevant creatures have deathtouch :) but it simply comes down too late in many cases. I initially ran it so I could Natural Order in the late game, but I found that I rarely waited that long once I draw Natural Order. I put Triumph of the Hordes in its slot, and I wish I could play both, but slots are tight...

Archfiend of Ifnir is a card I WANT to use here, but I simply do not have enough discard. I'd have to make discard into a strong subtheme in the deck, and I definitely don't have enough slots to do that reliably...I suppose I could use all 7 relevant cycling lands, but that would slow my curve down pretty hard...

Forgotten Ancient is interesting! I'll keep that in mind haha.

Seshiro the Anointed is a dead 6-mana card if I can't make tokens with Hapatra...

Dusk Urchins was in here until the most recent update. I have not had the chance to test it yet, but I think that Ammit Eternal will prove better in the long run...

Seasons Past is an amazing piece of recursion, I'm surprised more people don't run it. I usually get at least 4 cards back for 6 mana. I wish I could run fetches for increased value...

Bhaal666 and gdm1989: You make extremely good points; I'm glad you're here to help me answer questions on my deck haha. And if I could find a slot for Kamahl, Fist of Krosa I'd probably run him...
