You'll love this card: Phyrexian Processor . Suppose you have 70 life (very easy with Trostani), and you decide to pay 40. You'll get at least 1 activation out of this artifact before it can be destroyed, gaining you the 40 life back. Then you populate it. Now you're sitting at 110 with 2 40/40s for further copying. Aetherflux Reservoir becomes a really good wincon at this point. And Felidar Sovereign . I wouldn't dedicate much deck space to lifegain, but these cards work well with it. Archangel of Thune , for example, is great because she works great alone and is even better with your commander out.

As for replacements, Trostani likes to go tall, but not wide. So I would get rid of cards that don't go tall enough, like Myr Battlesphere , Hooded Hydra , or Emeria Angel .

Messere on A green-blue snake deck who ...

Hi everybody, i'm new in this forum, and my first thread is about my first deck. The idea of this deck is based on Kaminagawa's edition Snakes, who most of them, when inflict damage to a creature, make them TAP and don't UNtap during the opponent's turn, plus using some blu sorcery or instant who can TAP other creatures. The ultimate combo that i have in mind for this deck is to play Shisato, Whispering Hunter , maybe equipped with some Aura or Equipment who give him the protection from abilites or spell, or being unblockable (like Whispersilk Cloack), and then strat attack the opponent, using blue Istant or Sorcery to TAP his creatures (who will not UNtap until Shisato will be able to continue to attack), maybe with Nature's Will in play to also TAP his lands.

The problem is...what type of creatures and spell i need to have, to achieve this result? I've already have this deck, with some snakes who give me mana, like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Coiling Oracle or Orochi Sustainer , some combat snakes like Matsu-Tribe Sniper , Matsu-Tribe Decoy , Sosuke, Son of Seshiro , Seshiro the Anointed , Patagia Viper , Lorescale Coatl or some big snakes like Patron of the Orochi or Hooded Hydra ... but how can i build my deck to work fine? With which type and how many TAP spells?

If you have any suggestions, i'm all listening

If a Hangarback Walker or Hooded Hydra dies to infect damage, does it still create tokens equal to the counters it had on it before taking damage in the form of -1/-1 counters?

Im doing both, I was thinking of Hooded Hydra as a big hitter like Oran-Rief Hydra except if it were do die it wouldn't be a bad thing as I would get a huge wall or assault force that will be much harder to stop and could kill my opponent or stall them.

doh, I totally knew that :P

So for the Hooded Hydra question, what exactly are you trying to do with the deck? Make tons of tokens and go wide? smash face with your commander? Something else that I'm forgetting?
