Comments and help are most welcome for this deck!

This is my snake and shaman tribal deck that kills by swarming the board with snake tokens. The tokens then get pumped up to enormous sizes by stuff like Coat of Arms, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or by my decks commander. A second win option is to create either infinite or at least a huge amount of green mana and cast my X-spells like Genesis Wave, Squall Line or Tribal Unity. Omnath, Locus of Mana and Steel Hellkite also profit from huge amounts of green mana, especially if they use a Rogue's Passage for their attacks.

A more detailed description will be added later.

ideas and notes:Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant is only worth playing when I also play fetches and a Life from the Loam engine of some kind (maybe also add Crucible of Worlds)

targets for Deserted Temple, Magus of the Candelabra:Cavern of Souls (cast two or more uncounterable creatures)Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (lots of mana)Maze of Ith (remove two or more creatures from combat)Oran-Rief, the Vastwood (put two or more +1/+1 counters on your creatures that came into play)Rogue's Passage (make two or more creatures unblockable)Thawing Glaciers (put two or more basic lands from your library directly into play)Tower of the Magistrate (give two or more creatures protection from artifacts)Yavimaya Hollow (regenerate two or more creatures)

mana sinks:Tribal UnitySteel HellkiteStaff of DominationSquall LineSnake BasketScavenging Ooze (sort of)Orochi HatcheryOmnath, Locus of ManaHooded HydraGenesis WaveChameleon ColossusKamahl, Fist of Krosa

combos and synergies:Staff of Domination + Magus of the Candelabra + any land producing 6 or more mana = inf. mana which can immediately be used for Profit with Staff of Domination (draw the entire deck, gain inf. life).

Seedborn Muse + Cryptolith Rite or Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro and some shamans = huge amounts of mana every turn

problems I've run into while playtesting the deck:The deck likes to overextend on creatures like many tribal decks do. Boardwipes will usually hit me very hard and I feel like I could use some more protection against them. Maybe play stuff like Wrap in Vigor?
