Said on Ape commander deck...

#1

EDHREC is a solid resource, but it appears your charting new territory with Ape tribal, However while most apes are green, there are some red ones so ....

for R/G id consider Borborygmos or Mina and Denn, Wildborn

but in mono green you get Yeva, Nature's Herald or Dosan the Falling Leaf

but it really depends on how you want the deck to run and what kind of effects you want access to in the command zone to support the deck .

Said on Snakes In All ......

#2

superhuman21 Soul-Scar Mage is the closest to that effect that you can find.

magic is a rather literal game, effects that target, need the word target (otherwise it doesnt), same with the difference between Festergloom and Black Sun's Zenith. Same with Hapatra, She only cares that a creature got a -1/-1 counter, not the number of counters (Black Sun's Zenith for x=1 makes the same number of snakes as x=4)

Obelisk Spider, Banewhip Punisher, Nest of Scarabs, Flourishing Defenses, Midnight Banshee, Grim Affliction are also good options.

Said on Combo vs. Synergy...

#3

so for starters, Johnny, Combo Player is one of the three fundamental magic archtypes, and from a technical standpoint, any beneficial interaction between two effects is a COMBO (or Combination) .. especially in commander where you get everything from 2 card wincons, to elaborate 6+card infinite/near infinite setups.

it is however common for playgroups to be against infinite combos (which is easy to draw a line at, but creates incentive for near-infinite luck based combo's that are worse) you may want to get a specified description of what a "combo" is from the person making your mtg dreams difficult to achieve.

From my perspective:

a "Synergy" is a combination of effects that allows for a strong, often incremental effect that has a natural limit. (, cards, , targets, symmetry)

while a "Combo" as a category of Synergy that uses specific, often tutored for "pieces" to create instantaneous value by delaying or avoiding a synergies natural limits.

it might be worth swapping Corrosive Gale out for either Needle Storm, Hurricane or Windstorm or Squall Line ... but Arashi, the Sky Asunder allows for scavenge-able instant speed flying hate
