Minuses are the shit! Looks cool, my man. Midnight Banshee would like to join the treehouse ;)

ErebusX I definitely completely missed that lol I didn't realize the Devoted Druid could put counters on itself that's insane! I'm kind of borderline for both Rhystic Tutor and Midnight Banshee but I think you're right I could probably get value from just using more pump spells instead. Really appreciate the advice!

usaDiabetic I really don't know how I missed Vines of Vastwood, that card is dirty!

Odysseus_97 my own hapatra deck is more casual than this one but I've used most the cards you are asking about.

Corrosive Mentor has been generally very nice for me. Either my creatures get through or i get a few extra snakes, been especially nice for forcing hapatra through. A few times he has been the only black creature so he sucks then but most my creatures are black and gives those silly bugs from Nest of Scarabs more bite. Also great for when people want to attack you until they figure out you benefit more from it.

Archfiend of Ifnir would be great in a discard deck or perhaps The Scorpion God has a good use for him. Sadly to force some usefulness from him you need around 10 discard effects or more for consistency, it just ends up being a subtheme that takes a lot of space and doesn't do enough. better off with Black Sun's Zenith , Carnifex Demon, Contagion Engine, Harbinger of Night, and Midnight Banshee. That seems to be plenty of mass negative counters.

Forgotten Ancient I'm not playing anymore but is hilariously overpowered. He can keep your stuff alive or just pump hapatra and kill someone with commander damage. The multiple uses for the positive counters is really worth it. I'm just testing a more reanimate oriented idea right now.

Dusk Urchins is surprising. Since hapatra drops turn 2 you swing turn 3 and you can place a negative counter here because you want the draw in a few more turns and then turn 4 swing with him for another snake. It is hard to explain how nice he has been but just think about how nice it is to draw 2 or 3 for 3 mana then add in that he gets snakes and might do some damage.

Seshiro the Anointed I removed him because when I want my snakes to get pumped up is also when I want to win. He is useful to have out as long as possible so that you can have deadly 3/3s and consistent draw but that stops a combo I use. If you use the Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation combo then you need to watch how many pumps you include since they turn it off. If you are not using that then include it as long as the mana doesn't slow you down too much.

Hi, I'd suggest the following: Decimator of the Provinces is an excellent budget game ender for when you have all those snakes.

Carnifex Demon would be better than Midnight Banshee imo since it is much faster.

Maybe something like Blade of the Bloodchief to keep your commander alive?

Chainbreaker and Grim Poppet both make snakes on entering and have decent abilities. Carnifex Demon goes great with the poppet too.

Glistening Oil might not be a perfect fit here, but for the cost it is pretty awesome and hard to get rid of.

That's all I have atm, hope it helps!

Midnight Banshee is in the sideboard, along with 2 of Kulrath Knight due to mama cost. Tried having all of that main board but that became extremely top heavy and often lost with all of that in he hand and no earlier plays.

I have been thinking about Necroskitter but unsure if I have enough kill creature efficiency. Perhaps two more Crumbling Ashes in main would provide the kill power needed for that?
