HOPMONSTER on Hapatra -1/-1 Snakes

2 weeks ago

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

MaxoBug on The Scarecrow King

Actually, as stated on the "Cards" section, she's "Essential as the Reaper King". This deck does not work without her... well, maybe it may do in a way, but in a really crappy way. Remember that she's not only here to bring back the straw guys, but also for the card drawing, scarecrow sacrifice (which is the same ability, but depending on the situation, one part may matter more than the other).

Being a scarecrow, she comboes with the King too, both the vindicate, and +1/+1. Also even with herself if two are on the battlefield. And with every other artifact combo here. So no, please don't remove her.

On the other hand, you may want to take the Painter's Servants and Lurebound Scarecrows away, taking some options from the maybeboard. Those are the other scarecrows that are good enough. I find the rest of them to be useless, too situation-dependent, or pure crap. (even though the art is amazing).With those in the Maybeboard, you can try to make a flying army in order to compensate with the lack of strenght: One-Eyed Scarecrow, Pili-Pala, Watchwing Scarecrow, Wingrattle Scarecrow. Thing is, this last two are not good without colored permanents. On the other hand, Lockjaw Snapper is a pretty acceptable scarecrow by himself to consider.

Academy Ruins can be easily taken away to reduce budget as well.

Also, sorry for the late response, been pretty busy lately, and wanted to explain as exhaustive as possible.
