OptimalGreen on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

Nice on the Cradle get. I also got a Japanese LP one for $100 off normal price and was wanting to add it to Hapatra. Also just my two cents but I prefer Deathrite Shaman to Dowsing Dagger  Flip. I think now especially with Cradle the deck probably doesn't need Dagger and Shaman's great at graveyard hate but maybe that's just my meta with Gitgud frog and Muldrotha and Meren.

Hi mate, have you tested the following cards:

How have you been finding Skyward Eye Prophets ? The effect seems quite strong but at 6 mana and needing to wait a turn before activating is it too much investment?

bushido_man96 thxs for input. But when it comes to Basalt Monolith it just extra colorless ramp nice but doesn't help color fixing and while you can use it right away you have to 3 mana to untap the thing so im really only getting it full use 50% of the time, as for Grim Monolith you have to pay more than to untap it than what you get for tapping it, and it still colorless only mana. At least Grim Monolith cost the same to untap as you get for tapping it. Where Gilded Lotus cost a little more but also be used right way taps for 3 color instead of colorless and doesn't cost anything to untap. Pyramid of the Pantheon ok i get your point its a much slower guided lotus and i will most likely replace it with a sol ring as sol ring is just to good. As for Crypt Ghast and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , your absoluity right i will be replacing them with better mana cards like Birds of Paradise , or Sylvan Caryatid , if i need more creatures, as for mana rocks while signets are by no means bad, the shard obelisks such as Obelisk of Grixis are sometimes overlooked or the Khans banners like Sultai Banner which are just planned ignored which I personally don't understand when they are the wedges version of the obelisks but sightly better as they untapped the same as the obelisks tap for it three colors like obelisks but have the ability to draw you a card when need like Mind Stone unlike the obelisks so they give you more utility which is also a positive. And as for Dowsing Dagger  Flip you have to deal combat damage to a player to flip it which is easy for big dragons with flying to do oh and it gives your opponent a two 0/2 creatures. yes giving your opponent anything is good good unless your group hug or something but they are easy to kill most of the time. So i agree i need more mana i politely disagree with some of suggestions.

I agree with Unlife, you need more rocks. I'm not a huge fan of Gilded Lotus ; its a 5 CMC rock that produces 3 mana. I'd rather run Sol Ring , Worn Powerstone , and several signets. Ramos, Dragon Engine , Dowsing Dagger  Flip, and Pyramid of the Pantheon all require some work for you to benefit from the ramp. For the Pyramid, you have to pay 2 to filter for one color three times before you can tap it for 3 mana. So, its really not good. You'd be better off running Basalt Monolith or Grim Monolith , because at least you'll get 3 mana out of them right away.

I would also not run Crypt Ghast and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . The Ghast just becomes a dead draw if you don't have Urborg, and if you just run those two cards because they work together, but you don't have a consistent way of tutoring for them, then I don't see how they really help you out. City of Brass would be a better land card for you in this deck, at least from what I am seeing.

I don't think Amulet of Vigor fits really, either. It speeds up your tapped lands, but I think I'd rather run another mana rock in its place.

Hope that helps out some. I love reanimator and graveyard focused decks, so I really like what you've got started here. Keep at it!
