Crumbling Ashes Discussion

Izu_Korasu on Hapatra Sniper Sneks

Quillspike+Devoted Druid also gives unilimited sneks if haptra is on board.

Phage the Untouchable should probably be dropped from the list, there are too many ways for it to backfire (Eldrazi Displacer/Oblivion Ring for example)

Carnifex Demon seems fun here, especially with Crumbling Ashes, Consumptive Goo/Fevered Convulsions.

Flourishing Defenses and Nest of Scarabs seem like good ways to flood the board with tokens in addition to haptra's ability

andylkell There are three infinite combos in the deck Blowfly Infestation + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons gives infinite ETBs, infinite counter placement, and infinite death triggers. With this combo working, Nest of Scarabs gives infinite creatures, Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat gives infinite life loss

Devoted Druid + Quillspike creates infinite power. Paired with Hapatra or Nest of Scarabs, it also gives an infinite number of snakes/bugs

Devoted Druid + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Ivy Lane Denizen generates infinite green mana and infinite snakes.

It's also a token deck so Eldrazi Monument or Triumph of the Hordes as can work as wincons! Yeah I would like to add a mikaeus but im reluctant as I have a mikaeus edh, yet I don't want to take it out of there or buy another one. And actually from some playtesting using Crumbling Ashes i've noticed that it actually doesn't do too much work generally as it's only one kill per on my upkeep nonetheless, it can work definetely and i'll give it some more playtesting! Thanks a ton!

I love how on theme this deck is. It could use a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed if you can spare for another one or something else with similar effect so you can combo a little better. Definitely mainboard Crumbling Ashes if you can get it. I might throw in some tutors just to raise your consistency. It always helps to go get the card you need for a particular board state. In general, I like how interactive this can be, but I don't think it has the late game power that it needs to be really good. You have good value and synergy, but there's not a group of win condition cards unless you count a combo'd out Quillspike. The good thing is most of your kill spells have a creature attached to them so you might be able to overrun people, but board wipes would pretty much wreck you until you have time to get them back and recast them all. You just might want to look into more combos or bigger win conditions. Still, I do love how synergistic this deck is. Most everything is on board the theme.

Blowfly Infestation with Crumbling Ashes is nice.

Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction,etc. can also help ensure the spread of your counters.

Quillspike is nice for removing the counters that end up on your own creatures and also forms an infinite combo with Devoted Druid which is already in the deck.

Also since she specifically make's snake tokens, Seshiro the Anointed might be ok but i'm not as sure about that one

So Firebones675, what do you think I should change out in order to have Crumbling Ashes and say Contagion Clasp or Contagion Engine in the deck? and what did you think about what Bobby654 said about adding Kulrath Knight

Crumbling Ashes is fun with Blowfly Infestation.

Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction, or Tezzeret's Gambit (you'd probably have to pay the life but i think it still would be worth it) can also help ensure the spread of your counters.
