The biggest problem I have with Yuan-Ti is that they're Product Identity.
If they were Lovecraftian, there would be fish/squid/aquatic parts in there somewhere. They do feel very pulpy, though.Anyway, yuan-ti are awesome, especially because they are more than the usual animal-based humanoid. They are corrupted (Lovecraftian?) humans that come in three flavours: Purebloods, halfbreeds and abominations.
Imagine a snake walking on two legs. That's just wrong.
?? They are more acurate to Howard's stories. That is a plus in my book.Yeah, which means no Pathfinder Yuan Ti, which sucks. I mean we got the serpent folk, but its not the same. Ah well.

IIRC, it's mentioned that they're not actually controlled by whoever created them though. (you need additional magic or Control Dead undead powers to make them obey you)In other words, a wizard can just energy drain a whole bunch of villagers and there's your fairly powerful zombie army.
