(2)(Black)(Black): Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.
Fevered Convulsions Discussion
1 month ago
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
would give you a better bang for your mana.
will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and
Revenge of the Hunted
is a one player board wipe. I also find
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

Cheers, fellow Greven player! ;) Sweet list!
Mine is much more budget but feel free to suggest things. I’m still trying to get my hands on all the Greven-flavor cards: Fevered Convulsions , Servant of Volrath , Scare Tactics , Diabolic Edict , and Sadistic Glee .
How has the deck played for you?

Coinman1863 I understand the inclusions now and have also experienced having extra mana regularly but little to do with it at times. Fevered Convulsions is a great find! Thank you for the detailed response!

WushuTea first and foremost, thanks for liking the deck! This has been a long passion project for me and it's always great to hear other people are getting use out of it as well.
To answer your questions, Ravenous Slime was included as another GY hatebear which helps us beat Hulk and other similar GY strategies. The major upside is that it can be GSZ'd or Chorded for if need be, which makes it much more accessable for us than other options.
Fevered Convulsions was added for two reasons:
- I always seemed to make lots of extra mana without having much to do with it.
- With all the Tymna the Weaver decks around -1/-1 counters matters a lot. Also gives us more targeted removal than before with high re-usability.
Hope this helps and if you have any questions, please ask!

I do not have much experience with -1/-1 counters in EDH. I have tried to build a deck based around them a few times but was never satisfied with the results. I am primarily going to focus on improving the decks other components. Judging by some of the card selections I am going to assume this is somewhat budgeted and will try to keep that in mind with the suggestions.
If you want to speed things up you could try increasing your artifact ramp. I am a big fan of 2 cmc rocks, you are already running the signets but there is also Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Impulse , and Fellwar Stone not mentions a slew of rock that make colorless mana. There is also an unexplained absence of Sol Ring ...
If you find yourself with lots of mana and nothing to use it for Fevered Convulsions is thematic.
Phyrexian Arena is a card I staple into every black deck.
Heroic Intervention is another card I try fit into every deck possible.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combos very well with -1/-1 counters in general and especially with persist creatures but he is pricey.
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and all his infect friends deal damage the same way wither creatures do but kill opponents more quickly. Skithiryx is expensive but most other infect creatures are not if you want to consider an infect sub-theme.
Hard for me to tell without playing the deck the only cycle abilities I see are on your lands, does that allow you to get enough value out of Archfiend of Ifnir ?
You should try to get as many shocks and fetches as you can to improve consistency.
Hope this is helpful.

Adding equipment that lets your creatures do damage will allow your deathtouching snake tokens to tap to destroy your opponents creatures.
