There is only 1, but the way I have it organized, my list reflects it twice. It has to do that it has more than 1 function, and gets more than 1 function tag. There are plenty of other cards that are listed twice, but are only represented once in the deck. Check it out and you will see. Thanks for the positive feedback, this is now my all time favorite deck. It plays fun, has super exciting games, it's power scales with the power of my opponents, and if can win against most without being oppressive or gimicky. Super fun.

Rattlesnake effects allow me to sit comfortably in the face of threats, redirecting threats against my opponents. This also creates a situation where other opponents' answers become my answers. My answers are for surgical removal of threats that will disrupt my strategy, that will outright win the game, or for threats that still remain after all other opponents are defeated, and that cannot be redirected otherwise. Powerful removal is essential, but making myself an unfavorable target is just as essential. At times, a single Rattlesnake will delay an attack against me, or redirect attacks elsewhere from many creatures. A rattlesnake can act as a boardwipe, eliminating the threat from the entire board, but leaving the board in place to threaten my opponents. A single targeted answer would not do that as well. There is a balance, and both enhances the other.

It paints a huge target on me if I play it, but I usually hold it in hand until I can play it, combo with Thespian's Stage, and drop the hammer. It combos well with Weathered Wayfarer, and I just threw it in for fun. To be honest, it is mostly a bad card for the deck, but I have a very pretty one, with the pretty foil token that goes with it, and it always creates super exciting plays. It is also a huge surprising play for new metas. I may lose when I drop it, but it is such an amazing loss when it happens. I could probably do better without it, but everyone loves the inclusion.
