Seshiro the Anointed Discussion
1 week ago
@Daedalus19876, I want to suggest replacing Seshiro the Anointed with Blex, Vexing Pest Flip and here is why. 1st, if pulling a combo with Yawgmoth via an anthem effect, Blex has an advantage in that he is only 3cmc rather than 6cmc. 2nd, Blex will work with Nest of Scarabs where Seshiro does not. 3rd, when looking for card draw, Search for Blex is faster and more flexible. Getting to see 5 cards for 4 mana is really efficient, especially when the cards you dont choose to pay life for go to the graveyard anyway, making it possible to recur them later. In the majority of cases, this is going to be a much better way to put cards in your hand, rather than paying six and having to get through with combat damage.

I like sneks, but I'm a little confused about a few things.
Firstly, it looks like you're leaning really heavily into the snake tribal and even including a bunch of not great changelings like Guardian Gladewalker . But, unless I'm blind, I don't see any snake lords or powerful snake payoff cards that would justify including that many suboptimal snakes/"snakes". All I see is a singleton Sosuke's Summons which is definitely not worth including Gladewalker imo. And there isn't mirror march anymore to profit off its ETB. Compared to coiling oracle, hexdrinker, ice-fang, etc. which are all great midrange cards in their own right, the changelings seem really mediocre.
I think the deck would perform better if you cut some of the not great creatures and streamlined it more into a resilient simic midrange/tempo deck by adding some of the new cards like Shardless Agent and Counterspell . Some removal would probably also be nice but UG is notorious for barely having any removal so I'd have to look harder for that.
I would also suggest going down to 2 deadeyes -- 3 seems like a lot and he's really expensive. Also not sure why Sakura-Tribe Elder is there either, since more control/value would be better than more ramp here imo.
For the sideboard, I see you mentioned Prowling Serpopard . Is there a reason that isn't in the sb? It definitely looks like a great suggestion that would hose blue decks.
I think the main problem is you have a lot of snakes, but I don't see any snake tribal payoff. I'd either get some snake lords or lean a little away from the creature heavy snek and more into the midrange controlly snek. And if the snakes are just for flavor, I think the flavor can be preserved even if some of the snakes are switched out for spells.
P.S. Okay I did some scryfalling and found that these are the only snake lords: Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro , Seshiro the Anointed , and Sosuke, Son of Seshiro . Two of those are more like shaman and warrior lords though, and the only good one is probably Seshiro who also happens to be 6 mana. So I'm not sure about him but I think he's worth testing as a singleton maybe.

I agree with your assessment of Morophon, the Boundless ! Your suggestion of Ezuri, Renegade Leader is great and is an upgrade over the current Elf tribe representative, Elvish Archdruid . Although the needed to activate his ability may be tricky in a five-color deck, I think the benefit outweighs the risk. Crux of Fate over Day of Judgment is a flavor win, and Seshiro the Anointed is included in our Changeling Pool as the current Shaman tribe representative. This deck is FAR from being finished at this moment and will include a host of revisions to the 99 and the Changeling Pool. I love your suggestions and your vision for Morophon, the Boundless !! Thank you!!

When Morophon was spoiled, a lot of people treated him as a generic tribal commander, which I thought was lame. Building a dwarves deck with a changeling as a commander is uninspiring. This is the direction I always thought it should go! Nonetheless, I always thought a good direction was to include some of the best tribal payoff cards. Why not include Ezuri, Renegade Leader so that you can pump all of your changelings (since they are elves) and run your enemies over? Why not use Crux of Fate in place of Day of Judgment ? Since your changelings are dragons it won't hurt them at all. There are of course, many slivers that could provide good options as well. Seshiro the Anointed will pump all your changelings and draw you tons of cards. There are, of course, many more payoff cards, but you wouldn't want so many as to water down your changeling team, but to me its worth considering doing what changelings do best, namely, taking advantage of every tribe's best qualities!

I would say Lord of the Unreal would be an auto include even though it is double blue. Also Depala, Pilot Exemplar and Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign could be very good. A lot of the small tribes have very powerful payoffs. Here are some more.Midnight Entourage, Wirewood Savage, The dragons of tarkir series, including Atarka, World Render and Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Risen Reef, Seshiro the Anointed, and many, many more.

Helm of Obedience if not going combo route
Arisen Gorgon Too dependant on Liliana being on the field
Gorgon Recluse Too high CMC for what you do
Infernal Medusa Medusa /= Gorgon
Keepsake Gorgon Too high mana for one and done
Korozda Gorgon Too high CMC && not running heavy +1+1 Presence
Ohran Viper As you are in blue, you have better options for card draw, especially because this one means you have to deal damage to player first.
Oona's Blackguard Cut unless you are rogue heavy
Pitiless Gorgon All your snakes will typically have deathtouch or be able to gain it, at 3 mana this should do more.
Gaze of the Gorgon A little too high mana but hilarious at the same time.
Vraska, Relic Seeker Might be better for pirate deck, it's not on flavor at all here, and not in line with or as powerful as your other walkers.
Vraska, Swarm's Eminence This is useful however high mana for what it does, totally up to you, this could go either way.
Chromatic Lantern To ensure you make colors. Given you're going heavy black we may need to revise this item.
Chevill, Bane of Monsters super value at 2 cmc
Baleful Strix Super value at 2cmc, fly, dedtouch, card draw
Fathom Feeder value town, and if you yank combo pieces this can help facilitate a win with it's ability
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons 2cmc, high high values and makes SNEKS!!!!
Hythonia the Cruel Yeet cannons all non-gorgon creatures + big creature
Seshiro the Anointed SNEK SNEK +2+2 to all SNEKS! Draw card wen snek do damage!
Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Unblockable +2+2 SNEKS!

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you so much for your comment and ideas!
Meloku the Clouded Mirror is a nice idea, I can even use her with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to recover my own creatures. I have Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma in my collection, I was going to include her but I prefered to try other things, but I love that card too. Impervious Greatwurm would be easily removed in my meta, but in other situation could fit too. Kodama of the East Tree is awesome, but it "steals" me cascade triggers when it extracts cards from my hand, so I decided to keep it for other decks. Seer's Sundial is nice but I've played this deck and card advantage isn't a problem at all with cascade. The main problem I've noticed this deck has is only to add one or two powerful finishers, something like Craterhoof Behemoth or Kamahl, Heart of Krosa. Just because some games I make an inmense board but I lack a pump effect to really tear appart opponents.
I'll look your Archelos and Brokkos decks, thanks. Love sultai but nowadays I don't have any "proper" sultai EDH deck (only a modest semi-Precon Ukkima-Kazur +1/+1 counters deck)
