I like your deck, it is very different of the decks I've seen until now. The only black snake I've played is Pharika's Chosen and it works well with Viridian Longbow.

I think, in your deck you just need a bunch of cheap snakes that will exchange with the opponent creatures, or they can be converted in tokens with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Black Sun's Zenith. Therefore, cheap snakes will allow you to use Sosuke's Summons more frecuently and get more tokens.

Good luck with your playtesting!!

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I really appreciate it!


Yeah, unfortunately Viridian Longbow isn't legal, because that would have been a nice addition. And your suggestion for Nature's Way doesn't help, because there were already 4 in the deck XD But thanks for taking the time to make the suggestions and check out the deck anyway!

@ NinSonNar

Great suggestions. I don't think Clear Shot is a good option. I could just add more Cartouche of Strength and have persistent +1/+1. It is instant, but I don't think that is enough to entice me. I don't need a lot of surprise tactics in this deck - It's a big, fat, obvious, in-your-face bully =p

However, Rabid Bite is an excellent option, which I can't believe I didn't think of. And Prey Upon could be handy too. May throw 1 or 2 in, but if not, 4 for the sideboard in case I need to speed up the deck.

A Pariah's Shield can redirect damage away from you, and in turn you would keep the monarchy. Equip it to Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts or your Solemn Simulacrum or any of your tokens and combat damage is redirected to something creatures can't kill or something you don't mind dying. You could also throw in and equip it to a Stuffy Doll and ALL damage dealt to you gets redirected to an opponent.

You may want to consider adding Darksteel Plate. A deathtouch/indestructible commander is brutal.

The Viridian Longbow gives any of your deathtouch creatures removal.

And one of my favorites, Warstorm Surge means that Marchesa's assassins can deathtouch ping any creature (or player). Any and all of your creatures entering the battlefield... it adds up fast.

I always love seeing low budget, fun, casual decks. This one seems really good and hilarious and probably infuriating to play against which is a plus lol. Also I second Viridian Longbow because it allows any of your creatures to destroy huge creatures that might have trample before they get to attack. Additionally, I would recommend maybe adding in Sixth Sense or Snake Umbra so you can force your opponent to block or get punished by letting you draw a card. Plus since all your stuff is very low cost, you'll need card draw because you'll play out your hand by like turn 4. Snake Umbra also gives your creature a second life which is really helpful.

Okay so I finally got to test my hapatra build and I can safely say Viridian Longbow is one of the most useful pieces. As long as you have at least one snake, it locks down the board really well.

Pharika, God of Affliction did a lot too as a source of extra snakes, as well as some graveyard control against decks like Meren of Clan Nel Toth
