Fevered Convulsions 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

This is my list - they're very similar (although I have a lower budget) but you may find something you missed :)

Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH

Commander / EDH Daedalus19876


In particular, I'd like to highlight a few cards that have played wonderfully in my list and seem to be omitted from yours.

Harbinger of Night is a powerful source of numerous -1 counters, I would highly recommend it. I find it better than Fevered Convulsions (just way too much mana for its effect).

Splendid Agony is surprisingly good value in this deck.

Garruk Relentless  Flip is a great planeswalker for this deck :)

Hope that helps a bit!

LotharM0H Fevered Convulsions will be a solid choice for the deck, especially given the limited amount of options for instant speed targeted negative counter production. If you throw in things like Black Market and Crypt Ghast you will likely have an abundance of mana when those are out.

Oh hey, you built your own! :) I saw you upvoted my Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH list, haha.

A few quick notes on your list:

I've found Fevered Convulsions to be slow. REALLY slow, and expensive in terms of mana. I simply never had the mana available to make it efficient.

Thelon's Chant seems...odd. I think I see what you're doing - use it as an excuse to put -1/-1 counters on your creatures - but it just seems inefficient for that purpose (unless your meta has a lot of black).

I ended up pulling Contamination from my list because it shut down my access to green a little too effectively. It's an amazing stax card, though, so I think you should keep it. Just add more creatures and artifacts that can produce green to sidestep its restrictions (notably, Golgari Signet).

I prefer Static Orb over Winter Orb...though play both if you have space.

You might get away with adding a Necrotic Ooze combo?

Also, what is Entomb there for? Seems like a weird pick here. Is it only for Animate Dead?

Nest of Scarabs is almost strictly better than Flourishing Defenses for you.

Let me know how the deck works for you! :) I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have for my list as well.

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.

I think it is a matter of what you want the emphasis of your deck to be. Do you want a Proliferate deck, based on some Esper Artifact good stuff? Or do you want an Esper Artifact good stuff deck, with some proliferation on the side?

Either way, I think Astral Cornucopia is good. At its worst, it is a 3 CMC mana rock that makes any color. At its best, it can be a large mana sink that ramps even more or a proliferate target that slowly builds up to more and more upside. I do think Hangarback Walker is also a good enough card to warrant consideration even without the proliferation, especially with your general potentially giving it (or the thopters) the deathtouch/lifelink abilities. I think some of the darksteel artifacts should also be considered, no matter what (Darksteel Plate, Darksteel Ingot). Both are already good, and even better due to interactions with your general.

I think Black Market, in a vacuum, is reasonable. It may not be, however, necessarily top shelf "good stuff". I run it in a Vampire deck with a few more creatures in a wrath-heavy meta, and there it does pretty well if unanswered. With your general, you have access to a decent amount of deathtouch, so getting a seed onto the enchantment is pretty easy, but it wouldn't necessarily be game breaking at that level. It is more of a long-game enchantment since it can be a lot of ramp, but doesn't by itself win the game for you. Overall, I'd probably say to try testing it if you are playing "good stuff", but it is probably a better fit in a "proliferation shenanigans" deck.

The other suggestions probably work more in a proliferation shell than just Esper good stuff. Fevered Convulsions is more a combo piece than good by itself, though it does combo with both proliferate and excess amounts of mana. In the right situation (i.e. the situation described in your deck description - extra untaps and extra mana), it could race down Jenara, but I think it definitely would need support to work. Similarly, Vexing Sphinx is a delayed loot effect on a 4/4 flying body, but would really need proliferate to really shine. Etc.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on the suggestions. Take them as you will :D
