Nugget_Decks on Make them wither

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.

Ooh cool deck, never thought about having wither creatures fight opponents to make them weaker but it sounds awesome!

Definitely would recommend Skinrender for it's synergy with Necroskitter. Plus it looks like an Alien from AvP which is just a bonus.

Blowfly Infestation is a cool enchantment that, in my opinion, should replace Everlasting Torment. It seems a little bit pointless since almost all your creatures have wither anyways. I get the synergy with Heart-Piercer Bow but I think a Viridian Longbow would be better (or even a Pathway Arrows) because you can equip it to creatures you don't want to attack like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to ping their face and get a counter on a creature or put it on a wither creature when they have a big creature on the board you don't want to swing into.

Creature - Human Knight

Soldier token creatures you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance, and are Knights in addition to their other types.


Lovisa's Raidleader

Creature - Human Barbarian

Whenever ~ attacks, other attacking creatures you control that are Barbarians, Warriors, and/or Berserkers get +2/+0 until end of turn.


Make a non-blue counterspell with as little downside as possible.

On a side note, if any of yall have ideas for a punny name for my newly-brewed Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Infect deck, that'd be great.

Thanks for having me! I'll get around to writing my description and choosing a card later today.

With regards to Daedalus19876's City of Brass issue, I agree with the previous posts, though I arrived there by slightly different reasoning. Both the Modern Masters City of Brass and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons have some great interplay between light and shadow, so their art feels thematically similar.

So! On a totally different note.

I have a City of Brass and a City of Brass. Which do I put in The Locust God, and which goes in Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons? Thematic and aesthetic reasoning appreciated!

derhealman: Hi! Hopefully I can give some clarification.

1) I'm running reanimation because most of my combos are creature-based, so if they get destroyed, I can recur them without much trouble. Not to mention that the deck is deeply, DEEPLY reliant on Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, but if she costs 6+ mana to cast things start getting tricky. It's often easier to let her go to grave then recur her through some other method. Not to mention that if I have Survival of the Fittest, I can dump whatever I want into graveyard and reanimate it. The utility has led me really appreciate the reanimation spells, and in fact consider adding more. This is not a dedicated reanimator deck, though (I've already got one of those).

2) As Odysseus_97 realized, Walking Ballista does not go infinite with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, because of Mikaeus's static +1 boost. I'd also need a free sac outlet (which would make the combo un-fetchable with Protean Hulk without ALSO adding Phyrexian Delver). I have enough combos fetchable with Protean Hulk as it is, no need to add bad ones :)

3) Spore Frog is pretty dead without Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and I'm not usually that concerned about Fogging combats (since I have many good deathtouching blockers as it is).

4) My reanimation spells help me fetch/protect my infinite mana combos. See point #1 ;)

5) Beastmaster Ascension only prevents the Blowfly Infestation combo, though to be fair it does mean I can no longer Skullclamp my tokens. But generally I wait to drop Beastmaster Ascension until I have enough tokens able to swing that it immediately turns on, when it is more helpful than those two aforementioned cards.

Hope that clarifies some things! (I am considering Summoner's Pact, though, btw.)

You could try a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice token deck. I built mine with the populate mechanic in mind, so it focuses more on quality tokens rather than the quantity of tokens. You can also abuse cards like Phyrexian Processor, as well as embalm creatures like Angel of Sanctions.

Here's a link to my Trostani decklist: Trostani's Populace

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons is also a cool deck. Use neg counter removal spells and abilities and amass an army of deathtouching snakes. It's really easy to rebuild after sweepers too.

Here's a link to my Hapatra decklist: Hapatra Neg Counters

The deck has some combos in it, but in practice they are hardly ever used.

They're both 2-colour decks, so the mana bases can be cheap. I think both lists are around the $200 mark.

Have you considered dropping the blue for some of the green Amonkhet cards? Since a lot of what you are looking at involves -1/-1 counters Obelisk Spider, Nest of Scarabs, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons are all quite strong and potential wincons in a deck like this, and Channeler Initiate provides ramp whilst also acting as a respectable beater later on if you need it to be.
