Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Discussion
33 minutes ago
My friends and I play some crazy Tiny Leader decks against each other, the reigning champion has been the Elf tribal so far. One friend has a Dwarf tribal deck that is really awesome with Depala, Pilot Exemplar as the leader. He shoved in some vehicles and other really good dwarves, like Sram, Senior Artificer and Veteran Motorist. Another friend did a snakes tribal, U/B Dimir. It's pretty wicked too, but since Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons recently came out he is debating changing it from top to bottom. Then there's a friend with a human tribal who uses Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Remember to link to cards. Use square brackets: "[" and "]"
Hapatra's trigger activates when a -1/-1 counter is placed on a creature. None of the cards you mentioned place -1/-1 counters. Therefore they don't trigger Hapatra.

I think this is a very creative take on the ol' snek dek!
I recommend you drop the Angel of Invention , Aviary Mechanic , and Five of your choice of land (Rishkar gives you all the ramp you need, trust me!) These cards are very clunky and slow in the current meta, plus they open slots up for some better replacement cards and VERY needed spot removal!
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons x3 This is an incredible replacement for aviary mechanic that allows you to -2/-2 each time you successfully deal damage, and get to potentially make two 1/1 deathtouch sneks (if there are two targets)
Decimator Beetle is a really secretly good top-of-the-curve cheap card in this deck. It has a very decent body in which to place it's (two-four -1/-1 counters on hopefully) that with Snek out on the battlefield lets him also shoot -2/-2 out at the offense each turn. Good replacement for Angel in my book
As for your lands and remaining slots, I say just fiddle with the removal listed and find a good blend! Another great card however to adjust into your 20-21 lands is Grasping Dunes. With snek, it's a -2/-2 shock attached to a land! Very powerful.
Hope you have fun fiddling with my suggestions!

Honestly you made this really hard and while I cant think of anything that really needs to be cut with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons EDH decks rising up do you think that a copy of Guardian Seraph would be good to run? I mean it prevents the go wide and attack with 1/1 creatures and forces them to leave you alone to find a way to either pump their army or hit you with. I know you already Archangel of Tithes But this might be helpful? And have you thought of the Gideon of the Trials? Idk he might be fun to play around with to help with board politics! +1 Anway for making a damn soild deck! Had to think for a good while on what to suggest!

I love this deck! I'm building something quite similar, but am trying to maindeck Black Sun's Zenith and possibly Soul Snuffers. In combination with Dusk Urchins, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, and especially Nest of Scarabs, they should help clear the board and generate tons of tokens. What are your thoughts on those?

Nice to have seen the 1/1 Snakes be set free on Thursday.
Black Sun's Zenith $3 would be all star.
Really like Sorceress Queen, very cool.
Gladehart Cavalry for CMC 7, he adds +1/+1 counters, which actually remove -1/-1 counters, which you then won't be able to proliferate. He's counter productive with this Commander.
Carnifex Demon can keep making snakes for . CMC 6 for 4/4 Flying + 2 1/1 Snakes then for another 2 1/1 Snakes and he becomes a 6/6 Flying. Pretty decent. You have some other CMC 7 creatures that do much less for $0.60, like Arachnus Spinner, Skysnare Spider.
Midnight Banshee could create a few 1/1 Snakes, he doesn't hit himself or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Just think of the poor 2/2 Wolfs though! He also is Whither, much better than a Arachnus Spinner or Skysnare Spider.
Grim Affliction the proliferate seems good, but not sure how many lingering -1/-1 there are. Definetely if you continue to pump up your -1/-1 counters through Wither and ETB's it would be useful. It's 2 1/1 Snakes but could be many more depending on the board state.
Some ideas anyway.

Thanks for your feedback! I know I'm stretching the zombie thing a little thin, but I just love how well Festering Mummy, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Plague Belcher work together. I'm thinking of replacing both Gravedigger with liliana, death's majesty. That would help me recycle my hapatras (which are getting removed as soon as I drop them) and make them zombies, which makes them hella sturdy if I manage to drop Lord of the Accursed or Liliana's Mastery (also the menace from lord of the accursed helps them put counters more easily). Of course, that is very late game.
