Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Discussion

I went to a two headed giant prerelease, and my partner and I opened crazy stuff. He went simic ramp with Nissa and a foil Vizier of the Menagerie, while I went sultai cycle and -1/-1 with Archfiend of Ifnir + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons/the black enchant which I forgot the English name that spawns insects combo. We also opened a foil As Foretold. We went 2-2-1 in the end, it was really fun!

I played the GB -1/-1 counters archetype with a Crocodile of the Crossing, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Decimator Beetle, Baleful Ammit, Soulstinger and a huge bomb in the form of liliana, death's majesty. I went 3-1 so I'd say it works out pretty well, but then again my card pool was amazing.

I like the idea, but the major issue I see here is that there are too many two-ofs. In my experience, the best way to build/improve a synergy-based deck is to find out which cards you are building around and include 3-4 copies of them. So here's a question for you: how do you want to win most of your games, by going wide with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs, or by beating face with undercosted creatures like Channeler Initiate and Crocodile of the Crossing? You can do both, but you need to prioritize one.

Second pre-release for me went awesome. Finished 4-0-1 (last round was a mutual draw) and split 22 packs between the two of us evenly.
Went with a cycling counter deck consisting of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Archfiend of Ifnir and Nest of Scarabs. Man when the deck got going it was very hard to stop. My opponent in the 2nd round game 2 got starved out of mana, and by the time he started to build his board state I was already ahead. Being able to weaken my opponent's creatures and at the same time build my board state made it a tough go for my opponent. My prize packs was not that exciting.
But I am happy with what I scored

Open anything decent at any prereleases? I myself attended two going 1-2 the first time and 2-1 the second time.
My first kit only was a Honored Hydra and a promo Heaven / Earth. I got crushed game 1 by a bant deck splashing white for Oketra the True, game 2 I lost in our third round against another Bant deck featuring a Kefnet the Mindful, Nissa, Steward of Elements and an Angel of Sanctions. The other match I cant remember their deck much nothing stood out really that I can recall and I did win this one.
The second event later I opened a promo Kefnet the Mindful, a Hazoret the Fervent, a Drake Haven, an Irrigated Farmland, and a Anointed Procession.I played a U/W cycling deck and I had a fair bit of discard too, so I Was playing kefnet, with Drake Haven, Anointed Procession, and a Irrigated Farmland.
Game 1, I lost to a abzan deck featuring a foil Archfiend of Ifnir along with a Honored Hydra with plenty of cycling. Took forever for our matches to finish since my deck was so slow to win as well as to even beat, and our first match was about 35 minutes?
Game 2 I won against a Golgari deck playing lots of zombies and some cycling cards, it had Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Dread Wanderer, Ruthless Sniper, Festering Mummy, Stir the Sands, and Supernatural Stamina and combat tricks in green.
Game 3 was against a Selesnya tokens deck, featuring a Regal Caracal,Champion of Rhonas, and a Sandwurm Convergence. Game 1 I won through drake tokens eventually. While game two with my deck being so slow I couldn't do anything about Sandwurm Convergence which ended up beating me in about 4-5 turns not surprisingly.
My deck featured gate to the afterlife which I paired this thing with 1x drake haven and the synergy was awesome, beyond that I had Annointed Procession for even more tokens. I had 2 of those Sacred Cats to embalm too and 2 Anointer Priest for a ton of life gain and tokens.
That's how I literally won game 3, I attacked them with kefnet 5 times(the cats gave him some more life) and cast 2 Sacred Cats a turn apart, and embalmed them each while gaining life on the original ones dying from gate to the afterlife, and then life again when the token entered because of Anointer Priest. So I just stalled with that even though I was getting attacked over and over.
Only one invocation was opened surprisingly out of like 45-50 kits and 2 boxes worth of prize packs so far. It was an Aven Mindcensor the one.

I have a heavier focus on negative counters but I like your snake focus. Mine if curious Mistress of Poisons. I just watched you deck tech and wanted to point out you do have at least one infinite combo, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation + 2 1/1s. This allows you to infinitely set off hapatra by killing 1 1/1 and getting another. Obviously need Parallel Lives, Zulaport Cutthroat, or something to abuse the interaction. I also think Doubling Season will generally be more painful then helpful with the negative counters but Concordant Crossroads is very strong for when you pop out 10 snakes after Black Sun's Zenith or if you were to use Midnight Banshee.
