Pikobyte on Xyris: Reinvent the Wheel Combo

First of all, Minds Aglow is a way better prosperity. Also cards like Xenagos, the Reveler, Phyrexian Altar or Earthcraft/Cryptolith Rite do great in here but most of them aren’t really budget friendly. Also cards Seshiro the Anointed, Beastmaster Ascension and Shared Animosity are nice finishers as well as the not so budget friendly Purphoros, God of the Forge. All of those cards do well in my Xyris and make the deck Play storm-like. Feel free to take a look if you want to find some new toys

Seems like a pretty powerful deck to me, kinda reminds me of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Don’t know how many general snake buffs ya want but Seshiro the Anointed is pretty powerful. Tempt with Reflections has the potential to be a bit janky but it feels like it could work. Definitely deserves the upvote ;)

Ok, maybe this is just me loving snakes, but hear me out: It seems very specific to talk about a +1/+1 lord for a tribe with more than 50 creatures that doesn't yet have such a lord: There are 89 snakes, and the three lords give +1/+0, +0/+1 and +2/+2. Combine this with a legend that has a vanguard card and a legendary creature card, and we can hope for new Seshiro the Anointed. This fits with the human monk. Maybe we'll get a Kamigawa subtheme. Now wouldn't this be nice?

The Locust God works well with the rest of the deck, and provides another Xyris-like effect. It's hard to kill, makes tokens, and rewards drawing lots of cards. Seshiro the Anointed is great with the snakes, but might be too slow.

I think that Day's Undoing doesn't actually get you any snakes :(

Have you had the chance to play test? Curious if you've had much luck with the Laboratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle. You have a few shuffle graveyard into library effects, just curious if decking yourself out still comes up.

Cool deck! I love the Seshiro the Anointed, such a weird card that finally has a home lol

Cards also worth considering:

You by no means need to add any of these cards to the deck, they're just cards I think you might want to look at.
