Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Discussion

Have you considered putting in 2 Maulfist Revolutionary's in your sideboard/deck to replace Winding Constrictor? Constrictor does have the advantage that its an passive ability while Maulfist only procs on summon and death, but depending on the deck you are facing it could be the other way around. Ive seen quite a few +1/+1 Explore/Merfolk decks and -1/-1 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons decks that would benefit more from the Winding Constrictor than you would. But I guess it all depends on the meta at where you play.

I'd recommend picking between going fully -1/-1 counters, or fully +1/+1 counters. Having the mix of both makes the deck a bit unfocused. Both are pretty good, if you were to go down the +1 coutners, then you'd want to play more things like Longtusk Cub and Rishkar, Peema Renegade.

If you're going -1 counters then Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and other creatures that add -1 counters on themselves/ spills that put it on your opponents creatures are better.

Dhund Operative isn't that good with only 3 artifacts. Id recommend either playing more artifacts, or playing more Gifted Aetherborn instead but this could be an issue for your manabase to consistently get it out.

Ramunap Excavator doesn't seem like it generates enough value with only Grasping Dunes and Evolving Wilds. I'd recommend either cutting the excavator for a better 3 drop, or adding Ifnir Deadlands/ Hashep Oasis for more value.

Overall I'd say the deck needs to be a bit more focused on a strategy, but there are plenty you can go off of from here with a bit of modification. You could go +1/+1 or -1/-1 counters, deathtouch themed, desert value, or even a potent green aggro deck with black supporting for removal. You've got a lot of options and all you need to do is pick one you think you'd enjoy and you should do alright!

UPDATE: So I loved the idea of this deck so much I built it on Xmage and played a few games. Here's what I learned:

It needs more removal. I was up against a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck and couldn't find my Harnessed Lightning so I ended up getting overrun by snakes.

I was honestly really underwhelmed by Saheeli Rai. Her +1 is okay, but it didn't have a very big impact because I already had a ton of card advantage. Her -2 let me down the most; it doesn't do enough to bring back a losing game and if you're winning it's just a win-more. Not to mention there's a lot of legendary creatures in this deck so half the time you're gonna be saccing the token as soon as it comes in. I would switch all 3 copies out for something like Abrade.

A card I can't recommend enough for this deck is Ripjaw raptor . Its stats are above average for a 4-drop making it great for attacking and blocking, and you can deter them from blocking or attacking into it because it provides huge card advantage. To make room, I would cut:

-Kefnet: Your 3-drop slot is already pretty crowded and I don't think he does what you want. Yes he's a 5/5 flyer for 3 but I never had 7 cards in my hand. -1 copy of Tishana: Her ability is amazing but she's sooo expensive and she almost punishes you for casting spells.-1 copy of Rashmi: Again her ability is broken but she's a do-nothing the turn she comes out and she dies to basically every removal card in the format. However, it is possible to protect her with Rishkar and her ability IS amazing so I'd keep 2 copies.

That's about all my notes. Seems like I'm being kind of harsh but I can't stress enough that I do love this deck.

You also have Angrath (feat. in Hijack) who is probably B, but he's really just a family man who just wants to get back home, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons who really cares for those under her watch. I'm sure there would be more examples if I kept thinking...Toshiro Umezawa is an excellent example as well.

Here's mine. Copy-pasted from my forum post :)

I've started a new series of decks attempting to show what a deck would look like with two non-partner generals at the helm! Thematically, this hopes to show how two generals, working together, combining their strengths and covering each other's weaknesses, can lead an army more effectively together than they could have alone.

First up: the fantastic synergy between Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God

With all that said, I still need the help of more experienced EHD players to help me sort through all my options. Assume no budget. I'm willing to take the deck in any direction, including combo. For this deck in particular, I need to find a way to better utilize .

Thanks in advance! Please leave suggestions, upvotes, and requests for the next two generals in the series!
