Snakeskin Veil


Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control. It gains hexproof until end of turn. (It can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

Not sure about satyr enchanter with only 8 enchantments. 2 Snakeskin Veil might be perfect! Protect sage and get two counters on it. Ozolith, the Shattered Spire seems like a must have here too.

Rasaru Thank you for commenting and giving me some advice. I really appreciate this!

For my budget, I would like to include some cards that cost about 10€ each, in total I would say I can afford about 100€ +/-20 (the lesser the better).

After testing the Deck for my own, I agree that my manabase needs some fixes. I ordered some cards to upgrade this a bit (see below).

As I am trying to put as many counters on my board as possible, I feel, that the creatures that do not create tokens like Kumena's Speaker, could be excluded?

I got some pending deliveries. Here are the cards that I bought to upgrade it:

Lord of Atlantis, Master of the Pearl Trident, Snakeskin Veil, Realmwalker, Double Major, Forced Adaptation, Kiora, Master of the Depths, Deeproot Champion, Merfolk Skydiver, Primal Empathy, Vastwood Fortification  Flip, Oversimplify, Tangled Islet, Flooded Grove, Rejuvenating Springs, Utopia Sprawl, Dreamroot Cascade, Talisman of Curiosity, Simic Signet, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Svyelun of Sea and Sky, Windswept Heath

I am not sure what to exclude and what to include.. (fyi I am playing for half a year, Thank you in advance!

Looking good. I built Shelob as a fight deck myself.

I found some Tech cards I really like in the deck:

Orochi Leafcaller helps to sometimes use abilities of the copies. Tough Cookie and Alloy Animist can turn the copies into creatures. Oh, and Livewire Lash is absurd with Shelob and some fight spells.

Finally, I've found spells such as Snakeskin Veil and Supernatural Stamina to be very powerful with Ward abilities. Your Shelob will sometimes be hit with a Path for , and having something to give her Hexproof right then can sometimes put you in a great spot.

Thanks for the feature treatment PurePwnage! Truth be told it’s been awhile since I took a close look at that deck, but I think your updated version is more stable and cost effective. What do you think about Tamiyo's Safekeeping instead of Snakeskin Veil? Or is that +1/+1 counter a safer bet in the event Melira isn’t in play?

Loooking good! Orochi Leafcaller is a card I like in my Shelob deck to be able to activateoff-colour abilities of fooded creatures. What's more, cards such as Snakeskin Veil and Supernatural Stamina are great with Ward abilities, as they can be major blowouts once your opponent tries to kill Shelob by paying her Ward.

wallisface Thank you for the feedback! I took a lot of your advice. Im currently play testing an adjusted version of this on Moxfield. Right now, I took your advice about remove Ajani and doing a playset of Hardened Scales. In terms of creatures, I went with Scavenging Ooze and Undergrowth Champion. I dropped Snakeskin Veil and Arbor Armament. I dropped Arbor because I believe the Falconer still gives me a flying edge. Snakeskin I feel was just taking up space. I going to see if I can get more counter production going from creatures. When I find a version I like I'll update this decklist.
