Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Discussion

CommanderAdventures on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

1 week ago

Hm the first card I'd think of when building a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck is Cauldron of Souls

It won't work with your tokens, but lets say your opponent board wipes - you trigger Cauldron - all non-token creatures including Hapatra return and each returning creature triggers your commander bc of -1/-1 counter.

Plus it's a great political card.

And what about a good Snake lord: Seshiro the Anointed

DrukenReaps on Missing a Combo Deck!

1 week ago

Continuing with the artifact theme you might look at Breya, Etherium Shaper. There are dozens of ways for the deck to go off with and without her. Some of the better combos are done with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar. Although any free sac outlet with something like Myr Retriever and Disciple of the Vault, Reckless Fireweaver, or Marionette Master will kill the table.

Another to think about is Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. I retired my own version, Mistress of Poisons, because it was able to win much too early for it to feel "fair" at my table. Comboing turn 3 is difficult but not impossible and I wasn't even close to optimal on tutors...

A few updates, after play testing heavily against exclusively burn I have learned it's a pretty hard matchup for the deck... To compensate I removed the 2 Midnight Banshee as I found they were too expensive and rarely got round to playing them. In place I added an extra copy of Scar as TheRustMage20 suggested, it's useful when combined with pretty much everything in the deck for only 1 mana and an extra copy of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons as LuxCannonator suggested because it was always useful to see her face pop up in my starting hand. Another point made to me was that Bloodbraid Elf would get incredible value out of my deck so I'm trying to order a couple of copies of it to probably run in place of the 2 copies of The Scorpion God.

I would look at The Scorpion God & Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons decks for inspiration. I've never built a -1/-1 counter deck, but jund colors seem great for it.

3 of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons would make me go infinite a lot more reliably so I may look into investing in more of her. Definitely will consider Black Sun's Zenith and Glistening Oil as well!

As for Crumbling Ashes I didn't think the deck needed it as it's already quite heavy on removal with the likes of the death touch tokens and Skinrender applying 3 -1/-1 counters. Plus it only activates on your upkeep so there's the possibility a big TRON creature would still get a good hit, in which case Doom Blade could just deal with the threat instantly.

Kaseto works pretty well with Blight Mamba to end games fast with infect

Coiling Oracle could give you some card draw

Prowling Serpopard could work in the side if you face a lot of control

sadly not in black Pharika, God of Affliction is my favorite snake and a god :-D, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons looks fun.

JoeNathan37 on -1/-1 fun?

Since your deck has lots of -1/-1 counter synergies and also has both black and green, you may want to consider putting Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons in your deck. She seems like she would work very well in your deck.

You also may want to consider enchantments such as Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, and Nest of Scarabs. I have a The Scorpion God deck and all three of those enchantments put in serious work.

You have Kodama's Reach in here but you don't have Cultivate, which is essentially the exact same card. You might want to consider using it as well.

I don't know if you want to run only basic lands in this deck or what, but if not you should definitely upgrade your mana base. One card that should be in just about every EDH deck is Command Tower, especially in a 4-color deck like this one.

I like this deck a lot. I had never thought of using Saskia the Unyielding to get access to more colors for a -1/-1 counter strategy and it seems to work pretty well. These are just some thoughts I had while looking through your deck that could potentially improve it. Scorpion God wither is my Scorpion God deck if you're interested, it could give you some new ideas for your own deck.
