Hey there,

I am also building Hapatra and I just want to point out a couple things.

First, as much as I love Archfiend of Ifnir it just doesn't work here. If I am looking at this right you only have one way to discard cards and zero cycling effects to trigger it. Meaning its just a 5/4 flier for 3BB.

You said this was your first Commander deck so I will let you know, a lot of people HATE poison/infect. Not saying you shouldn't run it if you love it, just that it may put a big target on your head you don't really want.

Also, one time effects aren't great in commander. A lot of your instants are combat tricks will only really ever help you out once. Since you are running infect at the moment I understand their inclusion but you might consider cutting at least a few for some cards that would have a more lasting effect on the board state like wrath effects (Plague Wind) or even more ways to pump your tokens (Beastmaster Ascension).

Just some food for thought. If you want to check out my take on the Vizier of Poisons you can do so here:

Archfiend of Ifnir is doing work. Sometimes he is to little to late. Other times he is just what I need. A 5/4 flyer with built in removal is nice. What were you thinking in his place.

I went to a two headed giant prerelease, and my partner and I opened crazy stuff. He went simic ramp with Nissa and a foil Vizier of the Menagerie, while I went sultai cycle and -1/-1 with Archfiend of Ifnir + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons/the black enchant which I forgot the English name that spawns insects combo. We also opened a foil As Foretold. We went 2-2-1 in the end, it was really fun!

Cutting down Curator of Mysteries and Archfiend of Ifnir down to 3 each. Adding in 2 Drake Haven to the main. Decided on 4 Tormenting Voice instead of the split.

Second pre-release for me went awesome. Finished 4-0-1 (last round was a mutual draw) and split 22 packs between the two of us evenly.

Went with a cycling counter deck consisting of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Archfiend of Ifnir and Nest of Scarabs. Man when the deck got going it was very hard to stop. My opponent in the 2nd round game 2 got starved out of mana, and by the time he started to build his board state I was already ahead. Being able to weaken my opponent's creatures and at the same time build my board state made it a tough go for my opponent. My prize packs was not that exciting.

But I am happy with what I scored
