@kanguilla: Some snakes have a secondary ring of teeth in the throat to prevent prey from getting out.

Zombie snake has two mouths?

I always liked dross crocodile and lightning elemental. Attack with it and kill a creature. Get it back from the graveyard and do it again. Eventually they run out of blockers.

This is probably better than you think in Limited. He trades with so many things. Tribal synergy with zombies is relevant--Ghoulcaller's Chant and Ghoulraiser are both common. Because of Morbid and Skaabs, trading him off for a 2/2 can still work in your favor; it lets you follow up with a Morkrut Banshee, Skaab Goliath, Somberwald Spider, and so on. I'm not excited to play it, but it should not be underestimated.

Of course, if that's your plan, you will have to watch out for Fortress Crab and Grave Bramble.

*sigh* there's one in every set...

Nothing spectacular but decent in limited. it is a very good deterrent to attacking with a valued creature, and with a pitchfork he becomes a monster, well, more so than before at least. add in the tribal synergies and you have a limited format creature that can fill a slot decently. It does its job.

Actually a more relevant creature type compared to Dross Crocodile. They're both zombies, sure. But snake is a more relevant creature type with its own lords from Kamigawa (such as Seshiro The Anoited and Sosuke, Son Of Seshiro.

Alas, there are no crocodile lords. There are only 10 in the game.

Guess the Fensnake wins for the moment until we get to Crocodile Tribal in the future planned set, LETHE LAKE PLACID!!!

With this, Dross Crocodile, and Skeletal Crocodile, your zombie reptile deck is complete! Since they're all 5/1 critters for 3Black, you'll have an incredibly consistent deck. Might as well fatten them up with Feast of the Unicorn.

You can also splash amphibian by running Anurid Murkdiver, which is possibly the only time in Magic you'll 'splash' for a frog. :)

Zombie snake is ok.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
