Necroskitter Discussion

Duke.Fleed on -1/1 Counter Madness

2 days ago

Ok, I've actually been thinking about Necroskitter for a long time, I think the printing of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons makes the deck possible. So a deck with Necroskitter to be good I think you need to add green for Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Chord of Calling. This allows you to combo Necroskitter with Black Sun's Zenith.

The deck you currently have isn't bad, I think you ment to put in Nest of Scarabs instead of Scarab Feast. I would say Grim Affliction is too slow, Contagion Clasp instead. -1/-1 counters on their own are not super powerful, that is why having other cards that benefit like Necroskitter, Nest of Scarabs, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Another interesting card is Crumbling Ashes, allows for easier control of the board. Corrosive Mentor is also fairly interesting.

I think for this deck to survive long enough to get all it's pieces together you need to play some hand hate: Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Duress.

I'd go down 1, maybe 2 Scar and put in Grim Flayer.

You have the card diversity to make him a threat.

Scar (as far as I see) is really only useful to make a single snake (without killing anything) IF hapatra is on board, and most-likely wont even get to proc Necroskitter :(

Took out Melira temporarily, I agree although it sucks to have creatures on your own side die, the extra synergy is too strong. The only issue I have with Dusk Urchins and Necroskitter is that they are pushing the number of three drops in the deck.

If only Wall of Roots used -1/-1 counters!

I don't like Melira, Sylvok Outcast in this--it's nice with Black Sun's Zenith but shuts off your own Devoted Druid. After a quick search through Gatherer, Dusk Urchins and Necroskitter both look interesting.

This looks like a fun casual deck.

I would up the Crumbling Ashes to a 4 of, as it is just too great in a deck like this to leave. Also Necroskitter is a powerhouse in a deck like this, so you might want to run 4.

Sunscorched Desert doesn't do you very much, and 4 isn't enough green sources (or red). with the number of swamps it this deck, Tainted Wood can probably be as good as Bayou. So maybe cut back to 11 swamps, 4 Tainted Wood, 2 Rugged Highlands (better than Shivan Oasis), 4 Desert, and 4 Savage Lands.

You definitely need disruption and removal, Duress and Fatal Push and rarely does a black infect deck not run Funeral Charm. Your artifacts are too slow and don't do enough to help you win...

Creature wise, the norm is between 12 and 18:+ Phyrexian Vatmother, Ichorclaw Myr, Lashwrithe and for fun Necroskitter- Core Prowler, Ichor Rats and Carnifex Demon

Lands, aim for 22 land, however not all of them swamps:+ 4x Ghost Quarter and 2x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Neotrup will definitely put Necroskitter in there. Will be great with Smokestack
