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

2 weeks ago

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

Cool theme! Have you seen Seshiro the Anointed ?

Regarding the Snake production, the deck is actually quite consistent at pumping them out, hence Seshiro the Anointed won't be going anywhere as of yet.

Veil of Summer will likely replace Entomb as the deck only has a few avenues of recursion and it is more often than not a dead draw. As such, the most common tutor target is also getting the chopping block Protean Hulk .

Playing the deck, I find that despite drawing hate, having a 2 CMC commander offsets it, and I am more than happy to draw multiple removal spells out of opponents hands for a lowly 2/2.

Well I can say I think you should consider cutting Seshiro the Anointed . I understand that your commander makes snake tokens but that is a pretty minor thing, and you do not have a significant mass of other snakes or snake producers in the deck. At 6 cmc it just does not seem to do enough.

I know it is less than glamorous but I would consider finding a place for Veil of Summer . You do not really have a way to protect your combos. People do not like negative counters on their stuff so you will quickly find yourself the focus of removal/counters

Every deck that has both green and black should find a place for Deathrite Shaman , it has more value packed into 1 cmc than almost any card in magic

Night's Whisper is a far more efficient draw spell than Harmonize

Interesting. This is a weird kind of snake deck. But I like it. Phyrexian Swarmlord seems super-off though, and Rotting Fensnake is just terrible. Maybe try some numbers of Seshiro the Anointed and Sosuke's Summons instead?

The one thing that really sticks out to me is Shred Memory . The ability can be good, but when it's not good it's really bad, as the sorcery speed transmute will slow you down for many of your premium 2-drops.
