the god Enki, god of knowledge and wisdom, was described as serpent-like, always speaking deceitfully or duplicitously.
Only devious in his lustfull nature. He was a friend to humans, helping many times and interceding with his brothers whishes to drown all of humaninty.
I think deceitful or duplicitous is going a bit far.

The one thing I personally am sure of is that the writer of Genesis 1-3 intended that the serpent represent Sumer.
Insofar as Sumer represents knowledge and self direction I can't argue.
