    Yeah it's based off of the Champions deck. But what do you think of it? Does this pack enough puch to win or is it too defensive? I dont have any other snakes except for more of the ones below. Thanks as always :)

    Lands:
    24 x Forests too many?

    Creatures:
    4 x Tangle asp
    2 x Orochi Sustainer
    2 x Orochi Leafcaller
    1 x Sosuke, Son of Seshiro
    1 x Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro
    3 x Orochi Ranger
    3 x Matsu-Tribe Decoy
    3 x Kashi-Tribe Reaver
    2 x Kashi-Tribe Warriors
    1 x Budoka Gardener
    1 x Sakura-Tribe Springcaller

    Artifact Creatures:
    2 x Tangle Golem Not a snake I know..but might be nice to get out on the cheap and then nail them while they're blockers are tapped? I'm not sure.

    Instants:
    2 x Naturalize
    1 x Wear Away
    2 x Strength of Cedars

    Enchantments:
    1 x Serpent Skin needed? if not what to replace?
    1 x Blanchwood Armor only have one unfortunately

    Sorcery:
    4 x Stream of Life

    Please let me know what i can improve upon this deck. Thanks.

    If this is based off the pre-con, I think someone at Wizards did an article on improving it... I'll see if I can find the link. It's a place to start if no one else here gets to it (or additional ideas).
  3. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Never mind... I looked and it's just building a snake deck on a budget, not improving the pre-con. If you're still interested I can get the link though.

    Hypothetical situation:...(thanks by the way Spidey, sure I could use the link I'm always on a budget,lol) My opponent has three blockers out. I use Lure on a Tangle Asp or (any other snake with a triggered ability) do all the creatures die that block the Asp or tap if it's another card? Just thinking that if thats so..I'm going for 4 Lures,lol.

    Thanks. Thoise links are helpful. my opponent is debating me that only one creature will be destroyed or affected. How do I prove this? He says because the Tangle Asp(for example) says "creature" not "creaureS" that only one blocker will die,lol. Any help explaining logic would be great,lol. :)

    Well..I just found rule 410.9c and showed him. He doesnt believe the rule of the frigging game. Anyone playing in SC?LOL Rule 410.9c" An ability that reads "Whenever a creature blocks[this creature]" triggers once for each creature that blocks the named creature. Doesnt get more crystal than that. sigh

    Dude, you gotta stop playing with him if he doesn't believe the rules :)
  9. jorael Craptacular!

    Just continue the game the next time your playing together and you have no life left. Say you "don't believe that rule". :)

    If opponents are indifferent or ignorant of the rules, that's fine, but they sure can't ignore them...

    Unless he's the only opponent around, why put up with it? Life (and games :) ) is too short to waste it...

    Agreed Spidey, I once had a player get mad and debate with me over a foreign card that I had (Time Elemental) and tried to say I was lying about what the card did. It was a french version that I could read anyway, but he could not. I just told him to believe me or quit playing. He quit the game, then one of HIS friends showed him a copy of the card written in english. He wanted to play another game with me. I declined.

    Right abouth that. As soon as I find someone near here that's who I will play. By the way, check out my questions about the Goblin deck if you guys would. Thanks :)
  13. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Revan, I am sure you have said at least once, but I am well-known for my forgetfulness (at least I think I am), where exactly are you located?
  14. Revan New Member

    LOL! Yeah I'm pretty well known for my memory too; or lack thereof that is. Greer, SC near Greenville, Spartanburg.
  15. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    well...that is a little too far for me to commute for a few magic games....lol.
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, honestly, that I can believe unless you had also showed him an English translation. I probably wouldn't take someone's word for it that a foreign card did what he said it did unless we were friends and had been playing for a while (obviously). The thing about Revan's case what that he showed his opponent the actual ruling that back him up and his opponent still didn't believe him...

    :)
  17. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    True, i suppose. It galled me a bit to have someone think I was 'lying' about the ability of a card, but hey.

    With Revan, well, I would definately strive to find another opponent. How can you play a game if both people will not follow the rules set forth for that game?
