seshiro_of_the_orochi Deckling

How you might guess from my name, I'm a dedicated tribal player. I like gimmicky, unusual tribal decks, and if there is something I like more, then it is brewing them.

Combo and pseudo storm is a thing I enjoy playing as well. I'm a green player at heart, though I really like playing any colours if I like the deck I can brew with them.

If you have seen which set I started with, you know I've been around in this game for quite some time, but I'm still a kitchen table guy, and only if it's because I don't have a lot of time to visit any tournaments.

Feel free to take a look at my decks, and if you encounter or even have some weird tribal lists, please show me. I'll see if I can give some suggestion or appreciation of your creativeness.

SynergyBuild says... #1

Hello there, currently, you are sitting on the top twenty slot for both deckbuilder and helper, which there are only 7 of us so far, so I want to congratulate you. Secondly, if you wouldn't mind, can you tell me what you find is the reason you did so well on both?

If you are wondering why I ask, it is because I am the number one user on both tabs, and have no idea whatsoever how, or why, and would like to know the criteria for them.

Doom Whisperer seems very powerful. With Gaea's Blessing, lifegain and Desecrated Tomb, you can do some nasty things.

This is nice. I like it. How about The Mirari Conjecture as a value engine with Blink of an Eye.

Sorry, got the cost mixed up. Make it cost XWGB.

Lifespark Omnivore XGGG

Creature - hydra


When you cast ~, you gain X life.

~ enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters.

Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, target creature get -1/-1 until end of turn for each +1/+1 counter on ~.


Create a legendary non-humanoid cat.

ThatDooderGuy: these are some decent suggestions indeed. I haven't thought of any life-lands, but it's a great idea indeed. Wall of omens is fine, but in the current state, winning without mastery is nearly impossible. I could go a little heavier on reservoir though. Renewed faith is just too great with mastery to not play it here, and the cycling is very useful as well most of the time. Flame slash is a fine card. I'll think about that one. Prism is interesting, I just felt that draw three for one mana is worth not drawing a card without mastery. I'll still test it.

Regarding the sideboard: I only get to play at very rare occassion, and usually it's just casually. Thus, I normally don't build sideboards.

Couldn't come up with suggestions, unfortunately.

Very flavourful indeed. I unfortunately have no such flavourful suggestions, but Struggle for Sanity is a fun little minigame to rip apart big hands.

Said on Who bids more? ......


This deck is plain awesome. Definitely an earned +1. Have you considered Aetherflux Reservoir? Less than 15% of your deck costs more than three mana, so casting multiple spells per turn should be totally doable. And this way, going to life totals to overbid any opponent seems no problem.

Kefnet, pensive skywarden 2UU

Legendary creature - god

Flying, indestructible

Other blue creatures you control gain flying.

As long as you haven't drawn two or more cards this turn, ~ can't attack or block.

3UU: Draw two cards.


Oketra and bontu left.

Pikethras, the Lurking 1BR

Legendary Creature - God

Wither, Indestructible

As long as you control no creatures with -1/-1 counters, ~ can't attack or block.


I always felt like bolas weakened all the gods of amonkhet he couldn't use. So come up with a version of any one of oketra, rhonas, bontu, hazoret or kefnet before bolas could cripple any of their original powers.

Said on Sunbirds Approach...


This looks pretty straight forwardand well built. Other invocation builds I'e seen used more high-cmc spells to abuse invocation a little more, but yours is centered a lot more around approach. I'm not sure if this is better or worse, but you could test it.

Said on OMGispell Adept...


Am I getting something wrong with adept? The spell still resolves and is put into the graveyard, except when the spell says different. So you don't just cast a copy, you cast the spell. Which means you'll still have to find nexus to cast it over and over again. Apex of Power might actually be more interesting with adept.

Phaetion: now that's kind of cute. I mean, in a lethal way ;D

September 15, 2018 1:31 a.m.

The deck looks pretty interesting. But it seems you might have problems to finish a game. You have a extra-turn strategy going on, but your only finisher can't attack during those. How about kicking some of your more expensive cards for three copies of Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle? This way, could be more aggressive in longer games.

September 15, 2018 1:08 a.m.

I have no idea how strong this deck can actually be in standard, but it sure looks very streamlined and powerful. I really like the amount of tutor cards you've included.

You've absolutely earned my +1 and I you a lot of success with the list.

Just had another potentially great idea for you: Grand Warlord Radha could really help you pump out more dudes.

September 12, 2018 11:48 a.m.

Groundborn Wallbreaker 3RRGG

Creature - Wurm

Bloodthirst 3


Whenever ~ attacks, destroy target land.

Bloodrush 2RG: 2RG, discard ~: target attacking creature gets +6/+6 and trample. Destroy target land.


Give us a new Kaya, Ghost Assassin.

Said on How do lich's ......


I just thought about cards to add to my Lich's Mastery deck and came across Phyrexian Unlife.

So, do I properly understand the interaction?

Mastery would make you exile cards whenever you lose life. Phyrexian unlife replaces damage with poison counters once you hit zero life, you won't have to exile cards when something deals damage to you as it won't lead to you losing life. And thanks to mastery, you won't lose due to poison counters. Correct?
