Wasteland Viper Discussion

Silverdrake on Tap to Die

Neat concept. But wouldn't it be easier to shift the deck to GB and instead of running creatures that ping and equipments for deathtouch, run creatures with deathtouch and equipment to ping? Gnarlwood Dryad, Narnam Renegade, Foulmire Knight, Vampire of the Dire Moon, Wasteland Viper, Gifted Aetherborn etc. and Viridian Longbow or Sorcerer's Wand

Turntimber Basilisk is better than Wasteland Viper for budget creature creature removal

I'd replace Ghost Quarter with Field of Ruin, you need to get to 6 mana, every little bit helps. Your a creature dependent combo, so either try and stack your deck Mystic Speculation / 4 copies of Augury Owl, fill your hand Driven / Despair or straight up tutor Eldritch Evolution, Time of Need, this ones a bit slow, but hey Uncage the Menagerie...

If your worried about creatures, add some deathtouch; Narnam Renegade, Wasteland Viper, Ambush Viper or Winged Coatl. The other option is Fog effects. Hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage on Throw this deck away

To make this deck work you need a high density of creatures in your graveyard, to that end I'd suggest you have a look at cards like Shinen of Life's Roar, Shinen of Flight's Wings, Mulldrifter, Briarhorn Wasteland Viper and Slaughterhorn. Essentially you play these creatures like spells, but they have the added bonus of putting more bodies in your graveyard.

Your payoff cards; Splinterfright and Boneyard Wurm are ok, but with the available graveyard hate in modern they could easily end up 0/0 creatures, that was always one of the big powers of Tarmogoyf being at least 0/1 no mater the graveyard state. To that end I'd suggest a backup plan of Scavenging Ooze, Cloudfin Raptor, Renegade Krasis and maybe Fathom Mage or Simic Manipulator. I'd also suggest Magus of the Bazaar over Merfolk Looter.

Hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Hi MonkeyTemple, thank you! Unfortunately I haven't played with this deck for months so I'm not very updated on the last changes, but what I would change would be Wasteland Viper for Pelt Collector since the combo with the geist and Groundbreaker is really strong.

Let me know your results with this deck and I hope you'll have fun with it!

You should probably run Wasteland Viper over Sedge Scorpion.

I really love this deck, a similar build, altho mono green, was one of the very few decks I had in paper magic. :-)

Here are some cards you could consider:

The one mana deathtouchers were my removal. I was never disappointed to see one of them in the opening hand or later in the game. :-)

Have you thought about a transformidable sideboard which does not fold to graveyard hate?

Cards like Nullhide Ferox, Obstinate Baloth or Thrun, the Last Troll can add another layer to your deck.

skeletonbarrel on Snakes making a comeback!

I run a casual snake deck and I get most of my mileage from Sosuke's Summons and using cheap snakes to bring it back.

I would suggest swapping Blight Mamba for Wasteland Viper. If you want to add a 3 drop Prowling Serpopard is pretty slick.

Snake Basket can be a nice way to come back from mass removal.

If you want more card draw for Lorescale Coatl you could try Curiosity or Coastal Piracy.

Hope that helps, good luck with the snakes!
