Creature — Snake

lhetrick13 - I see that you've already made some changes to the deck.
Wanting to keep the deck purely tribal is a fair argument. I tend to think of tribal as "the vast majority of creatures being of the same type", my dragon deck, for example, runs a few goblins as they really benefit the deck. But again, if you want to keep the purely tribal that's fair enough. I've also skipped Tuskguard Captain in the past because outlast is such a shitty ability. But trample would still be a good idea, and so is menace! I'd focus on one of them or both.
Vampire Socialite is an interesting one as she is likely to change the order you play your cards. I wanted her for my vampire deck but couldn't fit her in. If you decide to play Hagra Constrictor, Winding Constrictor could be added for some kind of "vampire-snake tribe". I'm a bit unsure of Hydra's Growth myself. I once made a hydra deck with it and I could get 999/999 creatures with Heroes' Bane + Hydra's Growth . The deck played fine but wasn't at the level of my other decks. It's a fun card though!
I see your point about Realmwalker. I've never considered that those types of abilities are meant to increase your hand-size essentially.
Anyway good luck. Feel free to tag me if you want some more feedback or just want to show off new changes!

Yogei - Good stuff! Thanks for sharing your thoughts man!
I am a little hesitant about Tuskguard Captain as I do not want to lose the tribe for him. In case you have ever thought about running Tuskguard, Duskshell Crawler is similar but a little cheaper. I have never ran Rancor but do hate when an opponent uses it so that is a decent option. I also thought about Hagra Constrictor for mass-menace.
I originally did have Winding Constrictor in this deck and dropped it to keep the tribe pure but do not disagree with you that it would be nice to have to add a 2x multiplier on that counter production. Vampire Socialite has some merit as it does have a lot of synergy with the aggressive nature of the deck. I almost included it originally but decided against it last minute for some reason. Good suggestion! Hydra's Growth is sick but might be a little slow or easy to deal with as none of the vampires I am running have a natural evasion from removal.
I think you are right about Slaughter Specialist. I liked how it came in at a 3/3 compared to Cordial Vampire's only 1/1 but Cordial's ability effects all my vampires while Slaughter's is more selfish. Realmwalker I think I might try to add another copy of before I decide to drop. The idea with it was to give me the ability to play creatures from the top of my library giving me a hand advantage since I lack draw engines. It is a nice ability combined with a 2/3 body is pretty decent for 3 CMC.
Always good to get some fresh perspective on stuff...let me think on this a few days but this has potential to make the deck better for sure. Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

@KibaAlpha: I just received it over the mail yesterday haha. The whole jumpstart set was unavailable in Europe for a while, so I couldn't get it before.
But the deck is going to be adjusted allot, including the new nemesis bond lands, and im going to experiment with Kels, Fight Fixer, Eerie Ultimatum, Glasspool Mimic Flip, the Hagra Constrictor and Retribution of the Ancients you also use and most shockingly I am going to change Ishai for Sakashima of a Thousand Faces for a while to see how that runs.
My whole gameplan is to copy reyhan for multiple triggers anyway, so maybe trading white for Sakashima is a good idea.

Hey man, look at you still going strong with Ishai & Reyhan! You even surpassed me on the charts, I cheer to that.
This whole epidemic put dust on my cards; outside of the local game store there is just no-one to easily play with. But as new cards have been printed, apart from that walking dead bullshit, my interest has spiked on mtg again after playing some with the Otrimi, the Ever-Playful precon.
Now i've always wondered; Is Retribution of the Ancients worth it? The card feels similar to Vorel of the Hull Clade in where it's quite sub-par in action since its just a combo piece that needs setup and a turn, but somehow, people shit rainbows in their pants and spill their removal on this rather than on something i don't want removed... So Vorel once again made an entrance to the deck. For just a , Retribution of the Ancients sure looks tasty also.
I also like that cute little constrictor you have over there, the Hagra Constrictor.
