Another great way to ensure your Myr Superion hits the board. Especially nice since you only need one of these out to do it.

Friend to degenerate infinite-combo decks everywhere.

This, Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro, and Freed from the Real. I lost to this and a Fireball in a tournament once, after which I have kept this combo in mind. Basically you put Freed from the Real on Sachi and use her manna ability to give you 2 green, leafcaller it up and give yourself at least one blue so you can untap Sachi. Was, Rinse, Repeat. Even if you wanted to only use Freed as the only blue in your deck, it really mixes well with Helix Pinnacle to give you the Hundred manna needed. Spawnsire? Got your twenty manna right here. This combo is the cure to all your manna needs.

@Forgeling: The great thing about Magic is that the cards can be mixed up and put into different decks. So, you can put a snake in, say, an elemental deck.

A clearly improved update of Viridian Acolyte which appeared just two sets earlier in Darksteel.

I find this card incredibly useful in my Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro-powered red/green mana engine deck. Doesn't matter if you don't have too many mountains (if any) on the battlefield as this card allows you to use Kumano, Master Yamabushi to his full potential.

This combo hurts, and my deck brings it out all the time.

@ fastpond that "lame bird" is one of the best creatures ever printed you idiot.

I disagree with the first posters here.. this is one of the best mana fixing cards ever. It only takes 1 mana, and then it can produce any color mana from your green mana, which you already have or you couldn't play your orochi in first place. Taking a closer look at the ability, one will notice an important detail, it doesn't require tapping. That means later in the game, you can use this orochi to produce any number of other colored mana from forests or any green mana producer to play anything else. You have 10 green mana? Now it can be 10 any color mana.

also, sweetestsadist makes an important point, the fact that the orochi is a shaman is a big advantage, it can be used with sachi to produce green mana via tap later in the game.
