Shisato, Whispering Hunter Discussion

TheKing8426 on Budget EDH - Mono Green Snakes

Womokos, I wouldn't recommend you cutting snakes while keeping the deck mono-green. The weak point of the deck is card draw, which is inherently helped out by the Commander. It is only when you switch the Commander that you need to find card slots to put in more card draw. Blue is the card draw colour, hence the taking out of snakes to play cantrips such as Ponder or Preordain.

If you did want to cut snakes while keeping the deck mono-green, I would say that the weakest ones, in my opinion, are Orochi Eggwatcher or Shisato, Whispering Hunter. However, they still allow you to draw cards while Seshiro is out, so it's debatable whether to take them out or not.

The fun of Commander, to me, is tuning a deck to you and your play style. While I personally think this deck is very good, it is just my take on it; I encourage you to make changes as you see fit!

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.

Zimmers_0: Mine seems to be running really really well so far. A special shout-out to a few cards though!

Shisato, Whispering Hunter locks down an opponent pretty thoroughly as long as you can keep generating snakes.

Ulvenwald Tracker allows your deathtouchy snakes to fight your opponents' commanders.

Wickerbough Elder is great repeatable removal in this deck - you can reset him to use him again.

Your removal seems okay but you're missing Beast Within (simply the best green piece of removal in EDH). Pernicious Deed is also great.

How do you feel about tutors? Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent are great here. Same with Eldritch Evolution: you can sac a token to get a 2-drop, or a utility creature to get a combo piece.

Do you have any particular card draw in mind? You seem a bit light on it.

Still though your deck looks good! :) I used a lot of cards for it in my list :)

Hello good sir, one of my first decks ever was a snake deck aswell and i think it's the most fun tribal.

you might consider Opposition as control, works perfectly well with Sosuke's Summons.

Can be used with Shisato, Whispering Hunter to lock your opponent completly. Shisato works well with Kaseto aswell.

Shisato, Whispering Hunter

I have been wondering for a while if i should use this card but i'm kind of confused how it works cause of the "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice a Snake." so if i can't do i sacrifice her? Or does nothing happen cause it is not specfied?

I think i know which one it is but better save than sorry and thx for the help in advance

I was facing my brother in a 1v1 commander game. He was using Rakdos, Lord of Riots while I was using Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. On his side of the board he had a TON of creatures. Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Bloodgift Demon, Myr Battlesphere, Ulamog's Crusher (budget Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre) , etc. He tapped all of his creatures and that brought me down in health A LOT. On my side of the board I had an infinite combo of Serpent Generator, Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, and Shisato, Whispering Hunter. I kept hitting him with Shisato and he kept skipping his untap phase. I had a Beastmaster Ascension that would be activated in a couple of turns. Then I passed the turn. He drew a Mountain. He had the ONE red mana to cast the Blasphemous Act he had in hand. He reset all of his gigantic creatures to kill shisato. He passed the turn. After a couple of turns I got a Lorescale Coatl then I attatched a Snake Umbra to it. After a couple turns, It had soooo many +1/+1 counters on it. But on his side he got Rakdos out again and put a ton of big cfreatures out again. He won the game. Or so he thought. He passed the turn. It took me about 8 minutes to try to figure out how to win. He had a ton of blockers and I couldn't figure out how to win. I thought I need a way to make it unblockable. I remembered Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. I tapped five mana very slowly to make the moment more dramatic. Then I slowly slid Kaseto from the command zone to the battlefield. My brother literally slapped his face when I did that. I pumped my Lorescale Coatl and swung for lethal damage. Not only was the most intense EDH game I've ever had, it was also the longest 1v1 EDH game I've had.
