Sorry Donovan_Fabian, but you are incorrect. This requires combat damage.

That being said, great snake warrior regardless. 5/5 for its design, good body for cost ratio, and relevant abilities for what it is.

I've tried almost everything a Snake enthusiast could try. I've tried Konda's Banner. I've tried Seshiro, hatchery, door of destinies, sachi, any snake warrior, endless swarm, even tangle asps and that ice age snake, splashed blue, splashed white, but nothing seems to work. I'm sorry, but Snakes just can't make it past Casual. It's so sad, I just love Snakes so much.. If only these legendaries weren't legendaries. Dang, why must ELVES HAVE ALL THE FUN??!! Who made them king of anything??!!

Good card for changelings.

Decent body for 4 mana with more or less bonkers abilities. Giving all of your Warriors pseudo-deathtouch can be really awesome in the right deck, and not dying to Lightning Bolt is always nice.
His ability to give other Snake creatures you control +1/+0 might not be very relevant in most decks, but it's still pretty good if you happen to run other Snakes in the deck (for instance Sakura-tribe Elder or Sakura-tribe Scout)

I love this card My Snake deck works well with this guy. I combo him with Kashi-Tribe Reaver and Lure (or any snake warrior + Serpent Skin).I also have a tribal deck so all the cards in the deck are snakes, so when I bounce Sosuke's Summons in and out of my hand I enjoy comboing Alpha Status on one of my snakes to hit my opponent hard while they are forced to block my regenerating death touch girl. I also have a few Lightning Greaves so I can tap my shaman instantly if I have the sister out or just give shroud for when i don't.

Wanna protect him? Just combine him with Kashi-Tribe Elite

The idea is to play sosuke and sachi together granting all your snakes, shamans, and warriors benefits (ie your shamans produce lots of mana and your warriors have death touch), along with serpent skin (flash and 1/1 plus regeneration) with those warriors, which were included in the theme deck it comes in.

And yes it does work great with any type of warrior tokens, and also with cards like psionic gift since it doesn't matter how the creature is damaged only that it takes damage from creature.

Works wonders along side cheap warriors, like Elf Warrior tokens.

i would prefer +0/+1 with that second effect...

@gorgoncube: Well, at least you have many choices for a Snake EDH deck...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
