Most likely because of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons

I do love that type line "ZOMBIE CROCODILE DEMON" is just intimidating. And when you put it like that it does sound pretty good.

After thinking about it I really like this with Rhonas the Indomitable.

Turn 4 drop Ammit, swing with Rhonas, Turn 5 pump your potentially reduced ammit and give it trample... makes the blocks that much harder because of trample damage. And if you played Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons early on you would be living in value town.

There might be something to this guy yet. Thanks for talking me off the ledge everyone!

Solemnity or Melira, Sylvok Outcast...you get a 5/5 beater with afflict for 2B. Hapatra's Mark looks also fine, maybe even with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons: opponent can decide, does he want to reduce the Ammit or give you deathtouch snakes? Then you get the snakes and remove the counters again and give it hexproof when a removal is targetet at the Ammit

I might recommend splashing green for Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and maybe throw in some copies of Fatal Push

You say your mana curve is really good but you have literally no moves to make on turn one with this deck. That puts you straight away in most games at either a board or strategy disadvantage with everyone one turn on from yourself. The only thing you can really do is cycle one of your Dissenter's Deliverance away, assuming it is in the deck rather than the sideboard.

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs in a -1/-1 deck are cards you should be running x4 copies of.

I know you say Decimator Beetle is a must have, but 5 mana for a 4/5 creature that situationally could weaken an opponent by -1/-1 a turn? There are just better choices at that slot. Probably the answer is running 3/4 Archfiend of Ifnir and increasing the support for that card, 4x Key to the City being the most obvious.

I like your deck, it is very different of the decks I've seen until now. The only black snake I've played is Pharika's Chosen and it works well with Viridian Longbow.

I think, in your deck you just need a bunch of cheap snakes that will exchange with the opponent creatures, or they can be converted in tokens with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Black Sun's Zenith. Therefore, cheap snakes will allow you to use Sosuke's Summons more frecuently and get more tokens.

Good luck with your playtesting!!

bellz76, I like those ideas, as Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Decimator Beetle both need to attack to place -1/-1 counters, the Beetle's faster, but still falls to massive creatures, first strikers, and death touchers.

Archfiend I think would be sb to replace Liliana's Influence, specifically for those players hand hating me, because I have no discard or cycling otherwise in this deck. But now I see why you suggested those two together, as the key requires a discard to function. That bears testing. Thank you.

Maybe put in a couple Key to the Citys, a couple Archfiend of Ifnirs and take out 1 x Tree of Perditions and the 3 x Crocodile of the Crossings?

Endless One and Tireless Tracker have poor synergy with what this deck is trying to do. Nest of Scarabs is a must 4. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons should be at least a three of.
