Lockjaw Snapper is meh and Deathreap Ritual can be replaced by much better card draw effects in these colors. Mind Slash is a worse sydistic hypnotist imo


Illusionist's Bracers

Seshiro the Anointed looks very fun

HOPMONSTER: Thank you for your comment! Most of those have been in this deck at some point, but were removed for one reason or another. I would like to put Crumbling Ashes but it came out for Defense of the Heart currently. Lockjaw Snapper and Plaguemaw Beast were too conditional (they only worked if I had other sources of -1 counters), and Parallel Lives basically only works if I control my commander. And while I probably should find room for a bit more card draw, Slate of Ancestry always frustrates me when I try to put it into a list (8 mana for its effect?). Thanks for the comment, I always appreciate your insight! :)

slambamwam: I really need a dedicated token deck. This deck works okay without it, though - I just hate that often I tap out for a somewhat dead card.

Teufell: I'll take a look at your list! :) For the moment I'm not too worried about counterspells - Hapatra comes down T2 and dodges many early responses - but if you play in a counterspell-heavy meta Prowling Serpopard and Gaea's Herald could be really helpful!

gdm1989: I'll take a look at your list too :)

Thank you all for your comments!

Excellent, +1. Here are some other fun cards to consider here:

Crumbling Ashes, Lockjaw Snapper, Hunter of Eyeblights , Plaguemaw Beast sac snakes to make more snakes.

Then Collective Unconscious and Slate of Ancestry for more cards draw equal to the number of snakes you control...

I'm sure you've already considered Parallel Lives and the like...

HOPMONSTER on Hapatra -1/-1 Snakes

Good build, here are some fun cards I've tried in my own Hapatra deck that you might want to consider: Midnight Banshee, Gyre Sage, Carnifex Demon, Ulvenwald Tracker, Liliana, Death Wielder, Plaguemaw Beast, Collective Unconscious, Lockjaw Snapper, Hunter of Eyeblights.

Very fun looking deck. Snakes and -1/-1s, who'da thunk it.

A couple of ideas. Let's begin with some Scarecrows, one of my favorite archetypes. I see you have a few already, but some others worth considering are Chainbreaker, Fang Skulkin, Lockjaw Snapper, Wicker Warcrawler, and Antler Skulkin,

Sickle Ripper is a nice early game Witherer that can help distribute a few more -1/-1s. On top of that, for your creatures without Wither or Infect, why not try cards like Grafted Exoskeleton, Phyresis, and Blight Sickle.

Finally, I think the lack of a Glistening Oil in this deck is a goddamn crime.

Necrotic Ooze - You run quillspike and Devoted druid combo. This is always used with those two.

These cards are fun/cute Fang Skulkin, Grim Poppet, Lockjaw Snapper

I also might add protection for your commander, since that seems like where you are going to be getting most of your value from. She dies easy and has no evasion.

Not sure how much you'd need Hex Parasite but i'll suggest it
