Phillygreenman007... so I was considering Canker Abomination... in this build it wouldn't net creatures unless I used it as a counter-dump. ETB-with-counters doesn't trigger Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, or Nest of Scarabs. For a similar effect and same cmc, I could use Soulstinger, which I had considered in the past, but sorta forgot about. When Soulstinger was released, I initially thought it would allow you to target multiple creatures, which it doesn't, however it has great synergy with Nest of Scarabs. I dropped Soulstinger in standard because it was too slow, but it might (big might) be worth a try in this build, especially with Necroskitter in play.

I agree that the land count is low, considering you don't run duals or Channeler Initiate, which I really like for ramp. At the very least, and if no other duals are used, I would use 4x Overgrown Tomb.

I don't see Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons being useful in this build without major changes.

I would consider using Vraska, Golgari Queen instead of Vraska the Unseen.

You have no protection from flyers, unless I overlooked something. May consider Poison-Tip Archer or Nyx Weaver. This could be sideboarded though.

Interested to see how this turns out. Any help I can give is gladly offered.

Thank you both for your help! My major problem with the deck right now lies with Vraska the Unseen. I would like the deck to work with her, in addition to some of the other deathtouch creatures, and then overwhelm the enemy with Vraska's -7 ability combined with deathtouch creatures, given trample by Nylea, God of the Hunt. I'm not sure how it would be best to achieve that, however.

First off, what creatures should I remove? I want to include Ruthless Ripper and definetely Pathway Arrows but I'm not sure if I should focus on removing the more or less expensive cards. I need more inexpensive cards, but the smaller deathtouuch creatures use trample less effectively.

Additionally, should I use Fog? I'm just not sure if it works well with the deck. Could someone please explain why it does?

Finally, should I utilize the -1/-1 features of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons as the player above suggested, or does it not mesh with the deck?

The single biggest advice I could give you is to run more Lands. As I type this, the deck has an Average CMC of 2.92, which means it wants ~25 Lands (source is the table at the bottom of this article by Hall-of-Famer Frank Karsten). So you need to either add more Lands, or lower your curve, or both.

I know it's hard to get rid of cards you like, but please try it ... I think you'll find the deck runs MUCH more smoothly.


Reaching out because I liked your Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck. Do you have any (super-budget) suggestions for this deck? Thanks tons if you do, and no worries if you do not.

Have thought about maybe adding some red to the deck? If you have you might want to include something like The Scorpion God. Or if your thinking about green you've got Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons.

You and I are almost alike in terms of gameplay. When I play edh I usually try to not rely too much on my commander and mostly use them as a tool or a insurance plan but if I get the pieces I need or have a advantage I tend not to use them that much. What saddens me with toshiro is I wish he was blue and black. As for higher tier commanders. They tend to be VERY predictable and also boring at times. Another reason why I dismantled my Brago, King Eternal, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Queen Marchesa, and Glissa, the Traitor it became boring to win a lot lol

@Obdulio8, I'm not sold to Fume Spitter, and the Carnifex Demon and Kulrath Knight seem too high-cost compared with the rest of the deck, although you have Channeler Initiate. I'm also not sure about Undying Evil; I would definitely play 4 of each combo piece, 3 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and 4 Nest of Scarabs, 4 Obelisk Spider

Thank you for your comment MeagherMan101! I think i'll swap Banewhip Punisher for Skinrender. I don't like the idea of Blowfly Infestation in this deck, because it can make infity combo w/ Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Obelisk Spider, but still going to take Everlasting Torment out of the deck,and maybe put it on the side board? dunno yet... Loved the idea of Viridian Longbow!! It combos really good w/ the deck.
