Harbinger of Night Discussion

Ninelol on Ouchies

Here are a few cards I think you should add if you want to go down the Hapatra trail mindful some a loot right now >.< Harbinger of Night, Grim Poppet,Deity of Scars, Serrated Biskelion, Deadbridge Chant, Victimize, Grave Pact, Skullclamp, Dusk Urchins, Sudden Spoiling, Creakwood Liege, Krosan Grip, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Channeler Initiate, Seshiro the Anointed, Skinrender, Beastmaster Ascension

I can add more later but the gist of it is using Sac and reanimate to abuse ETB. Then using overrun effects like Seshiro and Beastmasters ascension to roll over the cleared out boards. Also using lots of sac reanimate lets you use a more toolbox approach similar to Meren decks!

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed might be a good fit if the CMC and price doesn't seem to get in your way. Putting a bunch of -1/-1 counters on some Undying creatures can always be a lot of fun. If you enjoy Midnight Banshee's ability, Harbinger of Night has a similar effect that doesn't have the "non-black" clause.

Like the deck! I saw the spoiler on this, and I was super pumped about an EDH deck, as well. Something I noticed about The Scorpion God is that even if it's a centerpiece to the deck, you probably don't need the hexproof or shroud from the shoes. You can have it go to your graveyard, instead of command zone, and you can cast it from your hand for 5. If your library is exiled, you have to pay commander tax, but that's the only scenario, so it's really not that bad if it dies. You've got a ton of card draw, and you'll probably kill Anger with your own cards the turn or two after it comes down, so I'd replace both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots with Anger. I haven't put together a decklist, but some of my considerations I didn't see here are Everlasting Torment, Cauldron of Souls, Grief Tyrant, Harbinger of Night, Hateflayer, Puppeteer Clique, Sickle Ripper, Soul Snuffers, Soul-Scar Mage, Thunderblust, Tourach's Chant, Throne of Geth, Volt Charge, Archfiend of Ifnir, Fang Skulkin, Fevered Convulsions, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, and Serrated Biskelion.

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH

Casey4321: I've found Defiant Greatmaw to be really useful because of forced counter placement. If I control Harbinger of Night or cast Black Sun's Zenith, et cetera, the counter placed on Defiant Greatmaw removes the counter on Hapatra (assuming she didn't die as an SBA).

And while forced counter placement can be a pain, it's also one of our cheapest methods of mass -1 generation. I've found it to be worth it despite the downside, personally.

A card I've been using in my hapatra variant was Kamahl, Fist of Krosa if you want to get rid of certain lands. While the mike and trike combo is good in general it's not really need that much I would add Dusk Urchins for draw power abuse.If you can find a way to ramp a lot of mana I would try Blightsteel Colossus and maybe Nature's WillParallel Lives, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Contagion Engine and Harbinger of Night are effective in this deck.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Soul Snuffers, Black Sun's Zenith and Harbinger of Night would turn all of your creatures into mana sources.

Gamer101Reborn on How do Hapatra, Vizier of ...

So basically, I am wondering that when Harbinger of Night triggers, will the snakes I get be able to attack this turn?
