MindAblaze on Best Creatures to Copy?

Mulldrifter and any of the other evoke creatures you like are easy to copy and useful to have more than one of.

Eternal Witness is useful, and Coiling Oracle is always a classic.

Diluvian Primordial and Molten Primordial on the other end are also silly. I have to agree that unless you’re doubling your mana somehow as your primary game plan, cheap creatures will probably be the easier route. You also have to get Riku out and keep him alive.

I really like the deck. Snake tribal in UG is right up there with Momir Vig decks as pet favorites of mine.

I like the card choices and have a question about the deck during gameplay. I don't see a lot of interaction and the only removal appears to be deathtouch. How does the deck run in 1v1 and how do you like it in bigger groups like multiplayer games? I am assuming it is for 1v1 mostly but since it can go big and go wide with Sosuke's Summons and lord bonuses it looks like it could hang in multiplayer. Just seems like it could get shut down without any real removal in the deck.

One last thing, I am a little sad not seeing Coiling Oracle in the deck. I admit it does not look like it would add a whole lot to the deck, maybe goosing past the tribe elder just a teeeny bit. It just has great utility and can be easily abused in other shells. It embodies the merging of blue and green very nicely.

What about stuff like; Risen Reef or Omnath, Locus of Rage?

Thanks again Geschlechts,

Growth Spiral and Coiling Oracle are both nice early game and I have a tougher time cutting such low CMC cards, which because of the draw basically become cantrips in my deck. I do have probably an unhealthy attachment to the sad robot and you are right about him.

Lorescale Coatl and Humble Defector have both under performed when on the board. And Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, I end up parking in my hand cause there is always a better choice to play.

If I swapped out those three for Anger, Fervor, and Chord of Calling (usually to pull out a god) I think that would improve the deck dramatically.

I am even thinking that Seshiro the Anointed could be replaced by Obelisk of Urd pretty easily. Or even swap Solemn for the Obelisk and keep both.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer was recently moved out of the deck. I have found that most of the named Legendary Snakes, which I originally had in here are slowly finding their way out.

If I already owned a Doubling Season, it would definitely go into this deck. But at $45+ price tag, its just too pricey for me.

I'd recommend dropping:

Growth Spiral - Good cantrip but doesn't combo with your commander.

Solemn Simulacrum - I think better options are out there.

Coiling Oracle, Lorescale Coatl - Great flavor but minimal impact.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind - for the reason you listed above.

Humble Defector - A little slow but you can play politics with it.

That makes room for 6 cards.

Anger + Fervor

Chord of Calling + Obelisk of Urd - Put that convoke to use.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer - Of all the cards in your maybeboard this looks like the most useful.

Doubling Season - The recent reprint has made the price not too ridiculous.

Some suggestions:

increase Brainstorm to 4x, Tezzeret's Gambit to 4x, and drop Chart a Course entirely. Brainstorm is a FAR better card, especially in this deck.

But if it is really important that you net cards from the spell, consider Scarscale Ritual instead of Chart a Course. With all the +1/+1 counters you'll be getting, you can afford a -1/-1 counter, which will get cancelled out anyway, and you'll consistently net a card w/o having to attack first.

Replace the 4 Sakura-Tribe Elders with Coiling Oracle. It works great with the top-deck manipulation of brainstorm.

Find room for Sage of Fables. I know it is not a snake, but it pairs incredibly well with Lorescale Coatl. Remove a counter, draw a card, and put the counter right back on (and it is a kind-of snakey-looking merfolk, so maybe that counts for something :P). I'd probably take out the Bioshifts for this.

Theros2014, Coiling Oracle returned to mainboard after playtesting new build. He works better in the shell I'm running now. Thanks!
