Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric

Whenever Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deals combat damage to a player, you may put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.

Whenever you put one or more -1/-1 counters on a creature, create a 1/1 green Snake creature token with deathtouch.

Hapatra, Resistance Leader 2BG

Legendary Creature - Human Assassin


G: Target creature blocks ~ this turn.

2B: Destroy target creature with a -1/-1 counter, then create a 1/1 green snake creature token with wither.


Who would've guessed that killing things could ever be that useful?

So this is Hapatra from the timespan between Hour of Devastation and War of the Spark, where the remaining survivors on Amonkhet fought the Dreadhorde. She is a cheaper Sisters of Stone Death who could both have her own deck or be in the 99 of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons .

I wish for a legendary Sultai Hydra with an unusual ability.

Aw, thanks Raknulfr! I've been able to play several games with it and it's been a ton of fun! The other super budget decks I've been going up against also seem really cool. They've been running Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Jodah, Archmage Eternal .

After some extensive playtesting I made two changes:


  • Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons : Mid/endgame I never truely found its potential. Most of the time I was hoping for another card.
  • Fevered Convulsions : Endgame I see the potential, but when it comes to these stages of the game I usually locked the table to find out it's a winmore card. In your opening hand and midgame it's just a dead card with a costly ability.


  • Sensei's Divining Top : After an absense I felt the appeal to give it a slot again. More hand sculpting options with the shuffle effect on fetch lands can give you an edge when you are looking for options/answers.

  • Rankle, Master of Pranks : I am not sure about the viability of this card in the deck. Perhaps it is meta dependant, but the 3 triggers that are relevant the turn it comes under your control warrant some playtesting.

Looking forward to play with Nath. If you have any questions, then let me know.

I also saw some comments about the primer on top, which couldn't be read. Let me know if you can open and read the content... or not.

When multiple triggers have happened since the last time a player had priority the controllers put them in the stack in active player, non-active player (APNAP) order. If a single player controls more than one trigger they get to decide what order to put them on the stack and then they resolve in first in last out (FILO) order. So you get to decide what order the triggers go on the stack.

In this scenario casting Reality Scramble via retracing it will trigger Mirrorwing Dragon and Archfiend of Ifnir .

If you put the Archfiend trigger on the stack first Mirrorwing Dragon will resolve first (because of FILO ordering) making copies of Reality Scramble . You will make 2 copies and they will go on the stack above the -1/-1 counter ability. They will resolve first and Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons will not be on the battlefield when the counters are placed and you will not get snakes.

If you put the Dragon ability on the stack first the -1/-1 counters will be placed first. Hapatra will trigger off of the counters getting placed and her trigger(s) will go on the stack above the copy ability. Because of objects resolving FILO, the snakes will be created before the copy ability resolves and there will be a copy made for each snake.

TL;DR: Depending on how you order the triggers you will either get a copy for each snake or you will never have made snakes at all.

If I want to play Reality Scramble from the graveyard by discarding a land while having Mirrorwing Dragon , Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons on the battlefield (targeting Mirrorwing Dragon ), what would happen?

Mirrorwing Dragon will make copies of Reality Scramble as it is the only target.

Archfiend of Ifnir will distribute -1/-1 counters what will trigger my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to create some snakes.

Will the snakes be in play before Mirrorwing Dragon 's effect happens, so that i get a copy of the spell for every snake i created?
