Hmm, good question. I'd drop Midnight Banshee, its fun, but its REALLY slow. Otherwise, I'd recommend dropping either a Fume Spitter or a Skinrender. I would keep both Necroskitters, they're really good, especially with Crumbling Ashes in play.

superhuman21 Soul-Scar Mage is the closest to that effect that you can find.

magic is a rather literal game, effects that target, need the word target (otherwise it doesnt), same with the difference between Festergloom and Black Sun's Zenith. Same with Hapatra, She only cares that a creature got a -1/-1 counter, not the number of counters (Black Sun's Zenith for x=1 makes the same number of snakes as x=4)

Obelisk Spider, Banewhip Punisher, Nest of Scarabs, Flourishing Defenses, Midnight Banshee, Grim Affliction are also good options.

I wouldn't bother with Midnight Banshee. I love the card, but in an aggressive deck it's just way too slow, hitting Turn 6 at earliest and not doing anything till Turn 7. You've already got tons of ways to trigger Nest anyways. I'd cut the Banshee and the Carnifex Demons and add three Kulrath Knight as finishers - they're easier to curve into, and help you close out the game even if your opponent has creatures large enough that the counters won't kill them.

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!
