I know you said you're not a fan of high cost creatures, but thoughts on Grim Poppetor Lockjaw Snapper? I have the feeling lockjaw would be a way to weaken bigger dudes, and if you just chump him into said big dude you could cripple it. and Grim poppet can just keep distributing -1/-1 counters so long as you can keep putting them on him, which I would assume would be through effects like "Give all creatures -1/-1 counters

Hi He_Who_Hungers,

If possible, I'd like to keep the average CMC of this deck on the low side. Carnifex Demon and Grim Poppet both fit with the deck's strategy, but each is rather expensive to cast and I have cheaper alternatives.

I love your idea of adding Retribution. It will ensure that my creatures without persist will also be able to recur multiple times if Mikaeus is on the field. I will replace Murder with it. Many thanks for your input!

Mikaeus is cool. I run him in my 60-card demon deck, mainly because of his synergy with sacrifice effects. One thing I can recommend is Carnifex Demon, as it comes into play with -1/-1 counters which offset the +1/+1 counter from Undying, making it practically immortal. Same goes for Grim Poppet, although that may be a bit on the costly side for what it does. Lastly, you could include Retribution of the Ancients in order to remove any +1/+1 counters from your creatures on instant speed in order to guarantee their safe return from Mikaeus' undying.

Looks great! Love Hapatra, she is so fun to build around. I made a similar deck just a while ago that incorporates Kamahl, Fist of Krosa's first ability with with Necrotic Ooze, Devoted Druid, and Grim Poppet to wipe out the enemy lands :)

What about Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Sadistic Hypnotist? Goes infinite with Devoted Druid and Grim Poppet creating infinite snakes. I can't even describe the amount of hate I get when I use it with Terastodon and a sac outlet.

First I suggest taking out all the artifact banners and replacing them with some other mana rocks like Fellwar Stone, Chromatic Lantern, Manalith, Hedron Archive, Thran Dynamo, or Expedition Map.

Some tribal cards include Wingrattle Scarecrow, Grim Poppet, Thornwatch Scarecrow, One-Eyed Scarecrow, Fang Skulkin, Shell Skulkin, Pili-Pala for the Scarecrow part.

Some good cards for your Scarecrows/because of your Scarecrows are Kindred Boon, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Bringer of the White Dawn, Sun Titan, Master Transmuter, All Is Dust, Darksteel Forge, Conjurer's Closet, Scourglass, Mechanized Production, Call to the Kindred, Descendants' Path, and Saheeli Rai.

Ah, understood. Gotta keep things in budget, of course.

And if I may interject on another point, Clone-type creatures will in fact trigger Reaper King's ability when they come into play! The reason being that their wording states they come into play "as a copy" of a creature, not that they copy one upon coming into play. It's a replacement ability that takes all characteristics of the copied card, making it trigger both itself (if, say, you copied a Grim Poppet, it would get the -1/-1 counters) or any other card for which the clone satisfies the condition (i.e. Reaper King.) So Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic, Phyrexian Metamorph and Progenitor Mimic will all trigger Reaper King.

to be honest, the idea was to use him with Cauldron of Souls to make infinite persists triggers, I guess I'll use Ashling the Pilgrim instead, I already have Grim Poppet, But I want a second way to do the combo...
