Sosuke's Summons Discussion

5dollarMTG: It's kinda hard to build Gallia indeed. My first approach featured Bloodbond March to abuse the discarding and Tremors even more, but the deck felt terrible. It simply put satyrs on and off the field at a point where other casual decks are already going for massive damage, to I dismantled it. This deck leans very heavy into what Gallia's flavour text suggests: All-in aggro. Satyrs have a lot of expendable creatures, and this basically is why Gallia works. She simple doesn't care which of her kin end up hammered in some corner. I've tried both Ghirapur Orrery and Experimental Frenzy, and the latter won. From my experience with Sosuke's Summons I could estimate how good Satyr's Cunning is, and I actually underestimated it. The loss of gas aggro decks suffer at some point is put back several turns with it.

I actually left most removal aside by purpose. Gallia's ability makes it hard to prepare a plan in your hand besides going wide, so any removal would basically be discarded at some point. I just tried to hit fast and hard enough.

Regarding Anax: A buddy got some copies for me, we just haven't met for some time, and I actually pulled not even one Anax from packs. I'll definitely add him in though. He'll hopefully give the deck a little more gas, and the synergy with Tremors is great for sure.

I'm currently building my own satyr list. After doing some slow sillyness with Bloodbond March, I decided to go Gruul instead of Jund. A synergy I'm running is Satyr Wayfinder with Satyr's Cunning. Cunning is basically the satyr version of Sosuke's Summons, and Wayfinder is a great way to fuel it. I know Gallia wants you to play a bunch of expendables, but Impact Tremors might be worth the risk of never actually drawing them.

DemonDragonJ If it were to put it directly on the battlefield, I'd compare it to Wargate .

What about a Sosuke's Summons -like card that creates a Dragon, Angel or Demon token, and comes back to your hand when you cast a nontoken one?

Matsu-Tribe Sniper is probably best in the sideboard as an answer to Little Miss Aeons Torn and Lingering Souls .

I've been wanting to brew up blue/green snakes for a while. My idea was to discard Sosuke's Summons to activate Vivien's Arkbow , and find a snake, to get the all the Summons back from my graveyard ready to discard again. Bonus points for finding a Mystic Snake in response to an opponent's spell.

In my experience, Orochi Eggwatcher is underrated powerful: as soon as it flips, the game will end: you attack, and sacrifice each blocked creature to pump unblocked creatures.

I can see a combo if can have a Frozen AEther on the batlefield, and a Cryptic Command to tap their creatures you can then start the attack with Shisato, Whispering Hunter until they're dead.

It all depends on who you're using as the commander. If you're using Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons you'll really want to focus it down. Are you looking for the -1/-1 counter part of it or the 1/1 snake tokens? Hapatra can go off very quickly with snakes.

Orochi Hatchery , Sosuke's Summons , Snake Pit , Serpent Generator are all good cards, even if the last one has a high cmc.
- ( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses ) + Devoted Druid + ( Ivy Lane Denizen or ( Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + ( Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves )))= Infinite Mana + Infinite Deathtouch Snakes -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses ) + Cinderhaze Wretch + ( Ivy Lane Denizen or ( Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + ( Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves ))) = Infinitely Discard Opponents (during your turn) + Infinite Deathtouch Snakes - Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Woodfall Primus + Ashnod's Altar = Destroy all noncreature permanents + Infinite Mana -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses or Nest of Scarabs ) + Grim Poppet + Sculpting Steel = Infinite Tokens -( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons or Flourishing Defenses or Nest of Scarabs ) + Blowfly Infestation = Infinite tokens entering and dying. NOTE: This needs to be used in conjunction with something else such as Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , or just another one of the cards listed above.

-Credit to akumawerewolf for his great Hapatra combo list.

Ninokun: that would totally suffice if the blue was only meant to cast kaseto. Activating his ability multiple times in one turn is pretty colour intensive though, so it doesn't work that way. Thanks for the nice idea though.

Chasmolinker: hapatra is a powerful card, but she wants a totally different deck. It could be done. I envision something among the lines of hapatra herself, Seed the Land , Noose Constrictor , Sosuke's Summons and Archfiend of Ifnir . Seems pretty interesting btw...regarding Metallic Mimic : I totally see the upsite of cards like this, but I don't usually like to include them in my tribal decks, and they aren't actual members of the tribe.

You should run cards that return themselves from the graveyard to your hand, for more Arkbow fun. Probably the best card for your budget and colors would be Sosuke's Summons . The best card to find would be Mystic Snake . Other cards like Coiling Oracle and Sakura-Tribe Elder would be good finds, too. The basic idea would be that you discard it to the Vivien's Arkbow , find a snake, put it on the battlefield, and immediately return all your Sosuke's Summons from your graveyard to your hand.
