Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric

Whenever Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deals combat damage to a player, you may put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.

Whenever you put one or more -1/-1 counters on a creature, create a 1/1 green Snake creature token with deathtouch.

Deathtouch works wonderfully together with trample (you only need to asign 1 point of damage to the defender and trample the rest), so cards like Overrun would be a nice finisher in the deck. Revenge of the Hunted is a nice alternative/redundancy to Destined / Lead

Frist strike and deathtouch is also a broken combination: Glissa, the Traitor is absolutely badass because he already has the combo on herself and her triggered will help you retrieve some of your important artifacts. Equipments that give you first strike are also a good choice Chariot of Victory , Bladed Pinions , Sword of Vengeance ...

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Pharika, God of Affliction create more deathtouchers. Hapatra may need some help to get through, but Pharika is pretty good on her own, your deck already has a lot of creatures, and it can be used also as graveyard hate if needed.

Acidic Slime , Liliana's Reaver , Gifted Aetherborn , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Skullwinder , Vengeful Pharaoh and The Gitrog Monster are some other of my favourite deathtouchers.

I like the list. I'm hoping Yawgmoth comes down in price after the release, so I can get a copy. I've been wanting to build Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons , and he'll run nicely in there, too.

You should add Karn's Bastion .

Seshiro's command 2GG


Choose one:

  • Create two 1/1 green snake creature tokens.

  • Destroy target creature with flying.

  • Target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn. Whenever this creature deals combat damage this turn, draw a card.

Create a new version of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons .

Several good Commanders coming out of Modern Horizons. Yawgmoth would slot perfectly into a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck.

I like what you've done here!

I'm stealing a couple of cards from this for my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck lol. Blessing of Leeches , Dark Privilege , and Soul Channeling are so good, I'm surprised they're also so budget friendly. I'm really feelin' this deck... You're tempting me to make a mono black EDH deck lol.

Hard to do much better than alias42's suggestion of Atraxa, but, in case you don't want to go that route, here are some other options:

PhoenixNest on Infinite Everything with -1/-1 counters

Flourishing Defenses is too expensive at 5 mana, maybe swap it out for a pair of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons . Foul Orchard is too slow as it enters the battlefield tapped.

If you're going for a budget deck, either Llanowar Wastes or Woodland Cemetery is great. If you're on an tighter budget, Jungle Hollow 's a bit better than Foul Orchard. If you aren't building a budget deck, Overgrown Tomb and Blooming Marsh are great options. Also four dual lands is a bit small, eight would probably be the minimum.

Diabolic Tutor is pretty expensive at four mana, and so is Harmonize . Most decks in modern can win on turn four, so trying to find your pieces on turn four is not a good way to utilize your turn. There aren't many tutors in modern, so I'd suggest coming up with a plan B in case you don't have the pieces of the combo.

I'd also suggest running some additional removal with some of these cards: Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Fatal Push , and Maelstrom Pulse . Doom Blade is a bit risky if your opponent has a ton of black creatures, and if so will be a dead card in your hand.

Victim of Night and Go for the Throat are great removal cards that are not very good in certain situations. If you are in one of those situations, and if you have a sideboard ready, you can swap them out for the necessary cards.

Hand disruption is also key to make nothing disrupts your combo. 1-2 Collective Brutality , Two-Four Inquisition of Kozilek s and a pair of Thoughtseize s makes for a great discard package. In the sideboard you could also run Duress against noncreature-spell-heavy decks.

It doesn't technically remove it, the counter is just never placed in the first place. This matters for things that care about -1/-1 counters being put on creatures. Like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons .
