Until end of turn, target creature loses all abilities and becomes a green Snake with base power and toughness 1/1.
Draw a card.

I'd recommend looking through list of staples in your colors. Stuff like Eternal Witness and Cyclonic Rift are always good. You definitely need better ramp and more card draw. Cards that fill that role and could suit your deck well are Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Cultivate, Mystic Remora, Blue Sun's Zenith, Beast Whisperer, and Soul of the Harvest. I would also recommend adding some more token generators, because small tokens synergize specially well with your commander: Chasm Skulker, Hornet Queen, Hangarback Walker, or, a personal favorite, Fable of Wolf and Owl. You should also consider adding more single target removal. Cards like Pongify or Rapid Hybridization are great for getting rid of big threats and for popping off your own cards like in case of them being exiled. There is no better feeling that responding to a Path to Exile targetting your Hangarback Walker with ten +1/+1 counters with your own Pongify. In case you have trouble wondering what to cut I'd recommend taking out the worst mana producers, Biomantic Mastery, Snakeform, Infiltration Lens, Augury Owl, Omenspeaker, Overrun, and Give / Take. Maybe even one to three lands given how low your curve is and how much card draw you can generate. I hope this helps.

drummerboy22 thanks! That sounds like it would be awesome, but since both of Turn to Frog and Snakeform get rid of all of the creature's abilities as well, wouldn't Tree of Perdition not be able to do its tap ability? I have thought of putting some burn cards in here as well, so that I can more easily knock down the opponents remaining life, though, to maybe make this a stronger deck.

Hi @Bootsworthy, great concept! But have you considered setting Tree's toughness to 1 with Turn to Frog or Snakeform instead? If you stack one of those first, then use the Tree's ability, it still works as desired. That way you only use one card, and you're guaranteed to set it to 1 instead of any other number. Support that with Vapor Snag and the like, and I think this list will greatly improve. :-)

Ok. You definitely need more lands. 35 at the minimum, but I recommend 38. So you need to take out a lot of cards. Think about what you're going for. A +1/+1 counter strategy? Synergy? Lots of little creatures? Then start taking out cards that don't fit the key themes you want in your deck. I know its hard, but it'll make the deck much better. For example, if you want +1/+1 counters and synergy with those, then Bident of Thassa and Bounty of the Luxa might not be that good. What i might do is just make a list of what IN MY OPINION is jank and should go. Take it with a grain of salt if you want, but its probably for the best (if you want the reasoning behind any of these please ask me, I can't write it down for every card). Animation Module, Bident of Thassa, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Snakeform, Plasm Capture, Negate, Mirror Match, Cobra Trap, Bounty of the Luxa, From Beyond, Urban Evolution, Whirler Rogue, Viridian Corrupter, Thelonite Hermit, Patagia Viper, Altered Ego, Overrun. All those I would Definitely take out and replace with lands, then there are a bunch more which I could see the value, and they could be really cool, but I ultimately would have to cut. These are cards like Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra and Kalonian Hydra. But I would test these cards before cutting them. You also have A LOT of ramp. Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Elvish Mystic ect. Maybe a little less ramp? I dunno, but these are my thoughts.

I love this deck! Everything from the name down to the theme and synergy is impeccable. It is a little stereotypical but hey, it is creative and well done. May I also suggest Polymorphist's Jest and Snakeform? Psychic Venom is also a good one - in the Medieval Age, witches were believed to be able to poison the mind of their victims and make psychic attacks. Palace Familiar is synergy (owlet's wing). Curse of the Swine is related to Circe, the Ancient Greek Witch of Aiaia, daughter of Helios and Perse (mother of witches). In some myths, she is believed to be the daughter of Hekate, Mother and Goddess of all witches, witchcraft, folk in the road, necromancy, the moon, dogs and divination. This deck is missing a counterspell so why not try Swan Song. My last suggestion is Mystical Tutor. I hope these help!
If you have some time would you look at my Morai, Otherworld, Pagan and Dracarys decks?

Not really a part of the theme of cards that prevent ETBs, but you can also use Sundial of the Infinite to end the turn in response to the horrible ETB triggers associated with Eater of Days. You can also run Ovinize and/or Snakeform in response for the same purpose as Sundial, although beware of burn spells when you do.
Leveler is a bigger hitter with another horrible ETB trigger that unfortunately lacks trample.

This deck is savage! +1 from me. The only thing I could think of as a possible inclusion might be Wall of Omens , or maybe Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Omens for a decent cantrip that will help you filter through your deck. Then Trostani for life gain from your big butts. Another cheeky way you could use Tree of Perdition is to activate trees ability and then hit it with Snakeform while trees ability is still on the stack and reduce their life total to 1. Snake form is also a cantrip. Anyway just a couple of considerations for you. I hope they are helpful to you and kudos on a really cool deck.
