Sosuke, Son of Seshiro Discussion

sonnet666 on Which has more support in ...

2 days ago

Friendly reminder that you don't need to pick one over the other.

The best anthems in the format either aren't creature specific: Crescendo of War, Cathars' Crusade, Archangel of Strife, Archangel of Thune, Eldrazi Monument, Jazal Goldmane, and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, or don't mention one type over another: Coat of Arms, so there's no reason all your tokens need to be of the same type. (Before anyone says it, it does not matter that some of those buff your opponents' creatures. The fact that you are going to have so many more creatures than them will negate any advantage they might stand to receive.)

If you're planning on going wide, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is without a doubt the best choice as commander, although Adriana, Captain of the Guard can be solid if you don't want to build into artfacts and usually play with 4 or more people.

As far as Soldiers or Warriors as a tribe, building tribal decks is much less an issue of how many good creatures there are of that tribe, and more about how many cards give you bonuses for sticking to that tribe and including a lot of creatures of that type. In this respect it's much more useful to search though all the cards that mention that type in their text box, rather than looking though all the creatures that are that type.

Soldiers: Gather Search (106 cards, 96 in Boros colors)

Warriors: Gather Search (90 cards, 39 in Boros colors)

Just looking at those numbers, it's easy to see that Soldiers are more supported than Warriors, and especially so in red and white. To break it down further, lets check how many of those cards have effects that are relevant is commander (i.e. generate card advantage, scale well in multiplayer, are cost efficient, and/or allow you to cast spells more efficiently.) Specifically, I'm looking for effects that reward you for playing Soldiers or Warriors, rather than cards that just make them like Assemble the Legion, which can go in any deck.

Soldiers:

Here we have, 2 cost reducers, 4 anthem effects, 1 cheater, 2 removal spells, and a sword. Kind of mediocre actually, the anthem effects are outclassed by what I listed above, and only Catapult Master, Preeminent Captain, and Unified Strike really require you to build heavily into their tribe.

Warriors:

(Non-Boros)

Here we have, 1 sac outlet / life drainer, 2 evasion effects (probably better options for this, Cover of Darkness for example), 1 cost reducer, 1 (meh) haste granter, and 3 anthem effects. Clearly, Warriors are the less supported tribe here.

To sum up: Soldiers have more support than Warriors, especially in Boros; there's no reason to stick to one over the other; don't go nuts trying to force a theme if there's no reward for it.

The_Grape on sneeky sneks slither through some snow (<$50)

I have seen another snek deck similar to this. It was also budget snek tribal, and it had the same thingies as yours does.

  1. First of all, Snake Basket doesn't give you sneks. It gives you cobers. The audacity I know! But instead of the snek basket, put in Obelisk of Urd, which makes your sneks mondo huge.

2.Sosuke, Son of Seshiro is fantastic with sneks since Kaseto already gives them unblockable to do the damages.

  1. Steely Resolve is fantastic since you have very few cards that target your own sneks.

  2. Door of Destinies and Urza's Incubator are fantastic snek boosters.

  3. Metallic Mimic is also great snek tribal.

  4. Tribal Unity this can be used as a finisher.

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.

Sosuke, Son of Seshiro would be an interesting include since it would give your warriors slow death touch.

Hey man, looks real nifty. Have you considered Obsidian Battle-Axe, Sosuke, Son of Seshiro, and Raiders' Spoils? Have a awesome day

Clockwurk Yeah...I really liked the idea of Doom Blade...With Sosuke, Son of Seshiro, the Graveblade is a little waste of slot. War Horn was a good card, but it's not a good choice at all. Unmake and Righteousness looks great, so as Smite. Maybe Infinite Obliteration is a good idea too. Take off some important creatures.
