Grim Backwoods Discussion
2 weeks ago
Alright some advice from my experience with my Hapatra deck. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/hapatra-snek-death/ First mine is right there second the base is solid but small tweakin could help out immensely. First you need backup Hapatra’s. If she starts costing 10-12 mana it’ll be heck. Nest of Scarabs Flourishing Defenses you also are going to need some card draw one shots like Harmonize and Night's Whisper and my personal favorites like Vampiric Rites and Grim Backwoods

You'll want some faster card draw and creatures, and more go-wide pay offs. Disciple of Bolas, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist, Grim Backwoods, Sangromancer, Rogue's Passage, Whip of Erebos are all good cards to add.
Midnight Banshee is a major nonbo in your deck. It kills all of your snakes that you get from it, as well as many of your other creatures.
For lands you'll want to avoid tapped lands that dont further your game plan some how. Replace with basics or fast-duals: Foul Orchard, Golgari Guildgate, Golgari RotFarm, Jungle Hollow, Khalni Garden, Mortuary Mire, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Cabal Stronghold. Manabasecrafter.com provides a very helpful list of every mana source you can play given your commander.

Cool idea, dude. Unfortunately if you want it to be viable in Modern I think you need the normal Rock package. 3 Inquisition of Kozileks, 2 Thoughtseize, 1 Abrupt Decay, 1 Maelstrom Pulse and 3 Fatal Push. You're just not fast enough to beat the fast decks in the format. I'd also play 2-3 Collective Brutality, because discarding Rat Colony to bring the back later with Bloodbond March is the way to go.
To find room for this, I'd lose 4 Drainpipe Vermin, 4 Ravenous Rats and the Aether Vials. Using Aether Vial to dump your hand quickly doesn't seem to have the same impact as in other decks, as you don't win with great speed. Control is also not a huge problem due to the addition of discard. I'd also take out 1 Grim Backwoods for another Overgrown Tomb. 2 of those is too many.
Sideboard should be 1x Maelstrom Pulse, 2x Chameleon Colossus for black decks (and in flavour), 2x Damnations, 2x Nihil Spellbomb (card draw is relevant vs Leyline), 3x Fulminator Mage for Tron, Surgical Extraction for combo/Tron, 2x Collective Brutality, 1x Deglamer/Unravel the Aether and 1x Golgari Charm.
I don't know if this meant to be budget because those cards obviously bump up the price, but I think that makes the deck viable, haha
Sorry for the over advice. It was meant to be short, but just kept going...

I really like the Bloodspore Thrinax in this deck. But I'd cut kind of every other +1/+1 counter card. The Thrinax lets your new snakes come into play bigger and lets every creature neutralize some -1/-1 counters put on them to get more snakes, which is awesome. But the other +1/+1 enablers aren't strong enough to keep up with the -1/-1 synergy of this deck.
You could find a way to get Hapatra through, e.g. Whispersilk Cloak or Key to the City. Some ramp will be useful as well, the usual suspects would be Fellwar Stone, Golgari Signet, Golgari Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth.
Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade are strictly better than Survivors' Encampment and Unknown Shores, but you really don't even need them in a two-color deck. Try Golgari Guildgate, Golgari Rot Farm, Jungle Hollow, Hissing Quagmire, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Temple of Malady. Terramorphic Expanse is a second Evolving Wilds, Opal Palace and Path of Ancestry should be auto-includes in a budget deck.

chadsansing thanks a ton! I'll definitely give your list a look for notes.
With regards to your suggestions, I can't run phytohydra (or any cards with another colour) without running aground on my concept of playing Reyhan by herself.
Mycoloth is a HELL of a suggestion that I can't believe I hadn't considered. What a beater. It'll be annoying finding a cut for it but doable.
On the surface Cauldron of Souls seems good but there's a problem because many of my hydra ETB with 0 counters if they weren't cast. I realized this in the original list when I tried to play more true reanimator rather than recursion cards. This is why I prefer Phyrexian Reclamation, Volrath's Stronghold, and Palace Siege in the list, getting a genesis hydra back in hand feels so good to recast.
The deck could probably use some more sacrifice outlets, certainly Grim Backwoods is a plan Z kind of affair. Birthing Pod is a pretty strong suggestion since I can sack Reyhan to find dimir house guard in time for a board wipe or bloodspore thrinax to combo off with woodfall primus. It's a little bit bad since much of my creature base DOESN'T have a high CMC as a card until I pour mana into them, but it's probably good enough nonetheless.

One card I forgot to mention is Hell's Caretaker as another recursion card.

Well you have an idea but this needs a bit of work, creature heavy decks with little to no sorcories, instants, enchantments, and artifacts fall flat on their face for the lack of support. I'm going to list some for you.
