Yep. Hapatra triggers on each event that places 1 or more counters.

Grim Affliction has two effects, therefore those effects create separate events.

  • 609.1. An effect is something that happens in the game as a result of a spell or ability. When a spell, activated ability, or triggered ability resolves, it may create one or more one-shot or continuous effects. Static abilities may create one or more continuous effects. Text itself is never an effect.

  • 700.1. Anything that happens in a game is an event. Multiple events may take place during the resolution of a spell or ability. The text of triggered abilities and replacement effects defines the event they're looking for. One 'happening" may be treated as a single event by one ability and as multiple events by another.

Example: If an attacking creature is blocked by two creatures, this is one event for a triggered ability that reads "Whenever [this creature] becomes blocked" but two events for a triggered ability that reads "Whenever [this creature] becomes blocked by a creature."

  • 603.2. Whenever a game event or game state matches a triggered ability's trigger event, that ability automatically triggers. The ability doesn't do anything at this point.

And Dusk Urchins WILL give you additional draws if it gets more -1/-1 counters on it before SBA's are checked. This can turn Black Sun's Zenith into a large draw spell.

So I have Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons out and I play Grim Affliction on a Dusk Urchins. I place the -1/-1 counter on it, then I place another -1/-1 counter due to proliferate. Does this give me two snakes or one snake?

And actually I have another question: If the Dusk Urchins already had two -1/-1 counters on it and I played Grim Affliction would Dusk Urchins die before I can put the other -1/-1 counter from the proliferate, or would I be able to proliferate and draw 4 cards? What if Dusk Urchins attacks, gets its third -1/-1 counter and then I play Grim Affliction on response?

okay thanks for taking a look at this, it will clear up a lot of questions that I have.

Going by the "7 by 9" rule is a bit hard for this deck as most of it relies on the numbers of the cards. But here's a breakdown as close as I could get for it. There's only really 5 categories of effects. While the other 3 just break down the number of countdown numbers of random cards.

5 Countdown numbers (13)

4 Countdown numbers (13)

1-3 Countdown numbers (6)

Recusion (6)

Protection (8)

Destruction (6)

Card draw (8)

Mana rocks (6)

Monomanamaniac I had Dusk Urchins in my deck when I first made it the only reason I took them out was because I wanted to make the deck more competitive so it had to get faster. If you feel so inclined you could mention my deck by saying that it leans toward the faster side of magic. I am happy that you want to make a deck around Dusk Urchins, mid-range -1/-1 counters is a super fun deck type to play, let me know how the deck turns out for you.

Consider Dusk Urchins great concept of love to make a deck out of it. How do I mention your deck when I do?

goaliciousSadly Grind / Dust cannot be played in this EDH deck due to color identity.

I have been having some great fun with Hapatra myself. Here are a few budget (under 10$) suggestions for you:

And there are lots more but this should give you plenty to start.
