Sosuke, Son of Seshiro

Legendary Creature — Snake Warrior

Other Snake creatures you control get +1/+0.

Whenever a Warrior you control deals combat damage to a creature, destroy that creature at end of combat.

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 like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.

    this deck looks like a total blast to play! i want to play it! haha.
    Parallel Lives seems like more snakes!!
    Kashi-Tribe Elite will give your commander shroud.
    Rancor on your commander seems like recurring trample + 2 more damage and 2 more cards to draw is good!
    any thoughts about Shisato, Whispering Hunter? seems a little staxxy but you have the snakes.
    also Sosuke, Son of Seshiro is another way to buff your tokens.
    feels like maybe hasty snakes would be good? Fires of Yavimaya

    Messere on A green-blue snake deck who …

    2 years 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

    Consider dropping the following: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
    Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
    Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
    Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.

    Warriors to consider:
    Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
    Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
    Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
    Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
    Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
    Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
    Brion Stoutarm - fling!
    Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
    Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend

    There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
    Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool
