Baleful Ammit Discussion

Thank you for your comment.
On 3rd turn I prefer putting a creature like Baleful Ammit and start getting snakes with Hapatra. Nest of Scarabs makes everything too slow and I prefer putting a creature instead. Nest of Scarabs is good, but this is my opinion about playing it.
Decimator Beetle's aim is to make my creatures with -1/-1 stronger and do combo with Hapatra. Replacing it can be a solid decision.As u can read in description, Archfiend of Ifnir and the cycling strategy could be replaced in future.I'll study what u said.
I disagree about the mana curve. In casual games this decks works fine.
Thank you again for ur comment.

Hi bustinedup! Thanks for ur comment.
I enjoy playing this deck with my friends. I like managing -1/-1 counters among my creatures and my opponent's ones.
This mana-curve is really good. The mix beetween creatures/other spells is nice. Look at the land mana graph too :)
Other comments are welcome :)

I think you'll need more removal. The 2 Never is not going to be enough. You have a bunch of counters, but what happens if someone slips something through? You need some package of Fatal Push, Grasp of Darkness, To the Slaughter or maybe even Essence Extraction. You can replace some of the creatures you have that don't do much... like the Dune Beetle, Scribe of the Mindful, or Baleful Ammit. They take the mana you would use for counters and removal.
Also, keep in mind that Kefnet's Monument doesn't tap the creature it targets, it just says they don't uncap next turn. I just found this out myself when playing with it in a sealed deck. If you already knew- great- but I just thought I'd mention it.
Hope this helps.

dspangle Thanks for the upvote and yes, there is no way to Activate Ifnir. I just put him in as a beefy flyer for midgame. I'm going to take him out though and put in some Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran, probably swapping out some Baleful Ammit since they can't remove their -1/-1 counters by themselves like Channeler Initiate and [Exemplar of Strength] can. I'm also thinking of doing a Jund version with Soul-Scar Mage, Consuming Fervor, and of course Archfiend of Ifnir. Thanks again!

No need to splash a color for Consuming Fervor. If anything, splash white for Vizier of Remedies, but that is quite hard to do successfully on a budget. Otherwise, maybe Soulstinger, Splendid Agony, Baleful Ammit, and Decimator Beetle.

No problem, Giddeon5270.
My main gripe against Behind the Scenes it requires you to already have a board established. If you do, you have a lot of 1/1 snakes swinging that they won't want to block anyway. I'm not blocking a 1/1 with deathtouch =) Also, if you leave some untapped, your opponent won't want to swing in on the ground. A minor gripe is you have to jump through hoops to get to the source. Basically Channeler Initiate is your only way to cook it up. A cool bit of tech, but I still personally think that card slot could be better served. Baleful Ammit has lifelink, and places a negative counter. Splendid Agony could let you kill something on their side at instant speed. Both are a little janky, but they fit the theme. Even Yahenni, Undying Partisan has haste for immediate board value, and can give you something to do with all those tokens later in the game.
Again, I may be wrong, if you've had it work, keep it. It just seems like one of those cards that takes multiple turns to be worth it, and in this current standard, unless you have a deck built around control, games don't last long.
Another idea for this is Scrapheap Scrounger and/or Haunted Dead. Since you'll be discarding a lot of cards, it's always nice to have things in the graveyard you can do something with. Both become frustrating for Control decks, and they have to find a way to exile if they want to keep it from coming back.
