I would put the deck under Casual and not Legacy as it is more a build for the kitchen table.

Sliverskin Boa

Creature - Snake


Whenever ~ enters the battlefield, attach it to target creature and tap it. It does not untap during your untap step. At the beginning of your upkeep, put a -1/-1 counter on the attached creature.

Whenever the attached creature dies, if it had 0 toughness, gain life equal to ~'s power, then you may attach ~ to another target creature.


"Often used by assassins, Sliverskins have a variety of uses; young snakes can be discreetly applied to a sleeping target, and can asphyxiate within hours. Adults have a more ravenous appetite, with a strong, neurotoxic venom used to immobilize and neutralize prey or man alike. - Hastric, Vigilant of Thune"

I love snakes, espcially the lines from Kamigawa. see: Seshiro the Anointed

Speaking of older cards/sets, M15 gave us some new and fun Slivers! A Thunian scout named Hastric is mentioned as flavor text on them! Please make a Legendary Card for him!

@Nawg, try Concordant Crossroads + Cryptolith Rite .

@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.
