Yeah instead of closing the game with Driven to Dispair usually the games end with Elder Deep-Fiend sac Sanctum of Ugin to get Decimator of the Provinces

I thought about it but the 1/1 body doesn't seem strong enough,plus the deck has a midrange gameplan.I think Narcomoeba would fit in a more combo shell with Decimator of the Provinces.

Hello! Nice deck. What about a huge finisher like Decimator of the Provinces or God-Eternal Rhonas?

Vraska, Golgari Queen is another great include, although she has gotten pricey as well. This card doesn't see much play, but i like Curse of Opulence. You will get way more use out of the tokens it makes than your opponents. Revel in Riches would be nuts in this list as well. If you wanted more token producers, From Beyond and Dreadhorde Invasion are both cheap and effective. Running From Beyond could open the door a bit for cards like World Breaker, Artisan of Kozilek, or Decimator of the Provinces for a nice finisher. Those are all pretty synergistic with your strategy as well.

The key detail behind what the Oracle ruling says is that paying costs is the very last step of casting a spell, with the window for activating mana abilities in the step right before that.

In the situation where you want to use Llanowar Elves for both mana and a sacrifice to help cast Decimator of the Provinces (or Natural Order or whatever), you would tap the Elves for mana in the mana abilities step and then spend the and sacrifice the Elves in the cost payment step.

This doesn't work in the case of getting mana from something like Thermopod because if you sacrifice a creature to make mana during the mana abilities step, it's gone when you get to the cost payment step. You won't be able to sacrifice it to help pay the cost of the spell you're casting.

I'd cut at least 5 lands and add these cards:

Sol Ring
Kodama's Reach
Wayfarer's Bauble

40 lands is too many, I think. Additionally, you're playing Foe-Razer Regent but only have two fight spells in the deck, doesn't seem worth it. Consider End-Raze Forerunners or Decimator of the Provinces instead.

JuQ on That Girl Is Poison - budget Hapatra

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.

Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.

Fevered Convulsions, and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...

Decimator of the Provinces is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple Overrun would give you a better bang for your mana. Predatory Rampage will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and Revenge of the Hunted is a one player board wipe. I also find Loyal Guardian to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.

on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand, Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.

These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor.The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.

If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts
