Stonecoil Serpent Discussion

With Dream Trawler being the problem that it is, I wonder if we end up seeing a run on decks utilizing Kaya, Bane of the Dead and Stonecoil Serpent maindeck

+1 for the name alone, love it!
First thing I'd suggest is you up the number of lands you're running to somewhere in the 21-23 range. 16 lands makes it EXTREMELY unlikely that you'll be able to consistently hit your land drops - the only decks that run that few are burn decks with their most expensive spells costing 2 mana. If you want to even think about playing 4+ mana spells, you're going to want more lands.

Moving on to more targetted feedback - if you want to upgrade it, I think you'll need to pick a direction to move the deck in. Right now it's less of a deck and more of a pile of green and white cards (not meant to be a slam on you, that's how most people enter/re-enter the game). You've got some solid +1/+1 counters cards like Gyre Sage and Hardened Scaled, and you've got some solid lifegain-matters cards like Heliod, Glorybound Initiate, and Lone Rider. I'd recommend on honing in on one or both of those strategies, and replacing cards that don't work toward one or both of them (like Primal Druid and Moss Viper, just at a glance).
If you want to hone in on lifegain, you could look at Ajani's Pridemate and more Lone Rider  Flip. For a bit more money you could look at Dawn of Hope. Another step up in price gets you stuff like Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Archangel of Thune. And at the very top you could look at more Heliod, Sun-Crowned. To gain life you could look at Healer's Hawk, Ajani's Welcome, Revitalize, or Daxos, Blessed by the Sun.
If you want to hone in on counters, you could look at (I don't know this arhcetype quite as well so I can't give you price brackets, you'll have to check yourself) Animation Module, Stonecoil Serpent, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Tireless Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Experiment One, Huatli's Raptor, Mowu, Loyal Companion, or Knight of Autumn. There's probably more excellent cards in that category as well, but like I said I don't know that archetype as well (I'm better versed in BLUE green counters).
You also don't really have much in the way of creature removal, which could prove dangerous. Selesnya Charm and Banishing Light are alright, but I'd up how many you're running if that's going to be your only removal. Declaration in Stone is a premium white removals spell you could look into if you're looking for upgrades in that department.

These are all just suggestions though - you should build and play the deck however you find it most fun. It is your deck, after all! Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

@AnnTheAristocrat:

True that, it's just a personal meta general which this deck really has trouble dealing with due to commander damage. Every meta has its sub-optimal card choices as more time passes, and Stonecoil Serpent is mine. Mentioning Feather here just is a heads-up for other players to run/not run Serpent if your metagame has or doesn't have similar threats swinging your way (and if having immunity from Tymna wasn't enough of an argument to run it).

Strange that you would mention a card like Feather, the Redeemed in your update for Stonecoil Serpent. I doubt that's a very relevant commander in a competitive setting.

Sorin_Markov_1947 Yes, particularly Starfield Mystic. It was never a terrible draw, and it got down early and maybe murdered a creature blocking. His static ability was a bit useful, but he was always dead before his ability triggered or I could put his static to use on larger enchantments.

I agree Elspeth Conquers Death is pretty crucial. I expect to have those in here sooner rather than later. I think standouts included Flicker which was versatile as advertised. I used it to murder a huge Stonecoil Serpent. Narset worked. Teferi worked.

It's true Azorius control is what was causing problems for the most part. I think in those match-ups I would have preferred Dovin's Veto or Mystical Dispute over Destiny Spinner because it was my board wipes and Dance of the Manse getting countered that was causing the biggest problems. Some matches would have been won pretty easily because they had countered enough enchantments that Dance of the Manse was gonna go off big.

Considering taking out Stonecoil Serpent for Anax, Hardened in the Forge. Thoughts? I really like the fact that Stonecoil Serpent can be used at any point in the game, but Anax, Hardened in the Forge is really good in this deck.
