To further supplement Omniscience_is_life's answer:

The see what effects any protection ability covers, you can use the acronym DEBT:

  • D - Damage
  • E - Enchant/Equip
  • B - Blocking
  • T - Targeting

Stonecoil Serpent's protection ability will protect it from 1) Damage from a multicolored source, 2) Enchanted or equipped with a multicolored permanent, 3) being Blocked by a multicolored creature, and 4) being Targeted by a multicolored spell or ability.

Cards like Stonecoil Serpent states it has protection from multicolor, does this mean it's protected from everything multicolor including creatures, instants, sorcerys, or abilities from a multicolor source?

Helm of Obedience if not going combo route

Arisen Gorgon Too dependant on Liliana being on the field

Gorgon Recluse Too high CMC for what you do

Infernal Medusa Medusa /= Gorgon

Keepsake Gorgon Too high mana for one and done

Korozda Gorgon Too high CMC && not running heavy +1+1 Presence

Ohran Viper As you are in blue, you have better options for card draw, especially because this one means you have to deal damage to player first.

Oona's Blackguard Cut unless you are rogue heavy

Pitiless Gorgon All your snakes will typically have deathtouch or be able to gain it, at 3 mana this should do more.

Venomous Hierophant Currently you aren't running much recursion cards I.E Reanimate

Night's Whisper not too useful, in blue if you need card draw, maybe a Blue Sun's Zenith or something


Gaze of the Gorgon A little too high mana but hilarious at the same time.

Killing Glare not bad spot removal, however, it may be more impactful to consider something like Doom Blade which is cheaper, and works on all but white.

Vraska, Relic Seeker Might be better for pirate deck, it's not on flavor at all here, and not in line with or as powerful as your other walkers.

Vraska, Swarm's Eminence This is useful however high mana for what it does, totally up to you, this could go either way.


Chromatic Lantern To ensure you make colors. Given you're going heavy black we may need to revise this item.

Eternal Witness , Maybe cut Pharika's Mender for this, as it is 2 less CMC for almost the same thing.

Chevill, Bane of Monsters super value at 2 cmc

Baleful Strix Super value at 2cmc, fly, dedtouch, card draw

Fathom Feeder value town, and if you yank combo pieces this can help facilitate a win with it's ability

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons 2cmc, high high values and makes SNEKS!!!!

Hythonia the Cruel Yeet cannons all non-gorgon creatures + big creature

Seshiro the Anointed SNEK SNEK +2+2 to all SNEKS! Draw card wen snek do damage!

Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Unblockable +2+2 SNEKS!

Prowling Serpopard Make's your Sneks and Gorgon's Un-Counterable

Stonecoil Serpent cool snek, but I think you might already have cooler in deck & on list

Orochi Hatchery Funny stuff this one, totally up to you

Bow of Nylea all creatures get deathtouch + more check this one out

Ohran Frostfang Gives attacking creatures you control ded touch and when your creatures damage a player, draw a card.

Kodama's Reach Mana Ramp

Search for Tomorrow Mana Ramp

Three Visits Mana Ramp

Decent deck. You might think about getting that average cmc below 2.5 but besides that I like it

So don't take my recommendations as me disliking your deck, but I'd suggest adding Eidolon of Blossoms,Enchantress's Presence, Fertile Ground, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Setessan Champion, Bear Umbra, Winds of Wrath, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel. But consider which of the higher cmc ones you y like because average cmc is important

Suggested cuts would be: Charisma, Thornweald Archer, Rofellos's Gift, Grimoire of the Dead, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Predator Ooze, Revoke Existence, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Lux Cannon, Stonecoil Serpent, Behemoth Sledge, Necropede, Wall of Denial, Spawning Grounds (as cool as it is, it's likely going to get the land it's on blown up), and think about taking out some of your etb tapped lands. Again these are suggestions and in no way am I saying these cards aren't good.

Anyways, hope it helps and I do like the deck, estrid proliferate is a good place for this commander

Mayhaps Culling the Weak? I'm adding it to my Korvold deck, and thought it might be good here. (If you're ramping, Stonecoil Serpent is a cool card, idk)

The point of kinnan is to make more mana because I need tons of it to storm off. Idyllic tutor find song of creation or Teferi's Tutelage. Stonecoil Serpent is in the deck because it’s a free spell which helps me draw more cards with song of Creation.

I see your win condition - mill+draw a card. Need more draw a card + fog card.

Kinnan, Bonder Prodigyfind something, but fild little. Stonecoil Serpent cost 0, if you find him - she put it in play with 0/0.

Idelic tutor need to find enchantment Nine Lives I see lot of mana, and don`t see have used to win. And need 2x Cinderclasm but remove all(6), 1/1 creatures - useless

dragonstryke58 on Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Jegantha, …

1 month ago

Jodah, Archmage Eternal does not generate mana. He only provides an alternate casting cost to cast spells.

If you choose to pay the alternate casting cost provided by Jodah, Archmage Eternal for Stonecoil Serpent or Chamber Sentry, X will not be paid. They will enter the battlefield with 0 +1/+1 counters.
