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

Matsu-Tribe Sniper is probably best in the sideboard as an answer to Little Miss Aeons Torn and Lingering Souls .

I've been wanting to brew up blue/green snakes for a while. My idea was to discard Sosuke's Summons to activate Vivien's Arkbow , and find a snake, to get the all the Summons back from my graveyard ready to discard again. Bonus points for finding a Mystic Snake in response to an opponent's spell.

In my experience, Orochi Eggwatcher is underrated powerful: as soon as it flips, the game will end: you attack, and sacrifice each blocked creature to pump unblocked creatures.

I can see a combo if can have a Frozen AEther on the batlefield, and a Cryptic Command to tap their creatures you can then start the attack with Shisato, Whispering Hunter until they're dead.

Scheming is super cool, but it feels like a nonbo with Mesmeric Orb . Revival is nice tech anyway, but how about one-of Narcomoeba , Lingering Souls or the humble Dream Twist as a tutor target in those circumstances?

Hi I like the idea of this deck. I don't think Teferi, Time Raveler is really that great here. His static ability is definitely always good. His minus is alright, though in these colors a kill spell will work better. His plus is just not really what you want in this deck with only Thoughtseize as something that would work with it. Only having 2 counterspells in Mana Leak isn't very ideal, I would either increase the amount of counters, or cut them entirely. Playing Lightning Bolt with no way to cast it other than Arcum's Astrolabe seems like you'll run into problems, and only splashing for 4 bolt probably isn't worth it. So personally I would cut the 3 Teferi, Time Raveler the 2 Mana Leak , and add 3 Liliana of the Veil and 2 Inquisition of Kozilek I also might do a 3-3 split of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek . I would also cut the 4 Lightning Bolt for some amount of Fatal Push and/ or Path to Exile You also might want to think about Lingering Souls it puts out a lot of potential blockers, and can easily be equipped with a sword. Even without a sword or anything else, I have seen countless games be won with a Lingering Souls top deck for the beat down. Another good card to think about is Maelstrom Pulse it's another card that can hit any non-land permanents that are causing trouble, but can be a nice 2 for 1 or in the case of tokens, just a blow out.

I’m actually happy with the current setup of 4 and 4. It increases my chances of having the nut draw and I still have the late-game backup plan of Batterskull , and I have won a game by putting two Colossus Hammer onto the germ token through Sigarda's Aid and then hammering through like 6 or 8 Lingering Souls tokens. The long game is actually surprisingly good.

Adaptive Automaton is good in any tribal, although he's a little pricey and he doesn't really fit with your theme. Lingering Souls is good, as is Twilight Drover if you play more tokens.

Cut this down to 60 total spells. You can move some of those cut cards into your sideboard.

Add at least 2 more lands, if not 4-6. The higher your AVG CMC, the more lands you'll need. Regarding lands, I know they're expensive - but the better the lands, the better the deck will run. If you're not already aware, All the lands in a sorted list is an amazing resource. A couple utility lands to consider: Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin , Scavenger Grounds .

Mainboard suggestions: Generous Gift , Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , Harmonize

Swap out Druid of the Cowl for Elvish Mystic / Joraga Treespeaker . Fertile Ground / Utopia Sprawl would fit, too. Arbor Elf might be ok, but you'd have to mind your Forests. Like with land, the higher the AVG CMC, the more ramp you want. 12 ramp spells wouldn't be too many.

I'm not so sold on Goldenglow Moth, even though I am a fan. I think you'll get as much or more mileage out of good old fashioned Fog / Holy Day or even Order of the Stars . If it's lifegain you're after, Rest for the Weary . If you're trying to deal with flying creatures, then Deadly Recluse , or sideboard Plummet , or even Lingering Souls .

Sideboard Suggestions: Sundering Growth , Scavenging Ooze / Tormod's Crypt , Shalai, Voice of Plenty / Witchbane Orb / Leyline of Sanctity , Sanctimony , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality

I was considering 1-2 copies of Barren Moor but didn't know what to cut. However, this was created in a Hogaak meta so I think at the very least I can cut Bojuka Bog and maybe even a Lingering Souls . I'll also be cutting 2 copies of Kaya's Guile and potentially a Leyline of the Void for 3 copies of Fragmentize since this deck folds like a house of cards to Blood Moon .
