Dashing Strike. If the yuan-ti broodguard uses its action to Dash, it can use a bonus action to make one melee weapon attack or shove a creature.

Mental Resistance. The broodguard has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t paralyze it.

Reckless. At the start of its turn, the broodguard can gain advantage on all melee weapon attack rolls it makes during that turn, but attack rolls against it have advantage until the start of its next turn.

Variant: Chameleon Skin. The yuan-ti has advantage on Stealth checks made to hide.

Variant: Shed Skin (1/long rest). The yuan-ti can shed its skin as a bonus action to free itself from a grapple, shackles, or other restraints. If the yuan-ti spends 1 minute eating its shed skin, it regains health equal to half its maximum health.

Actions

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 1.5 m. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) slashing damage.
