Backinthefrey on wither deck help

SirSh4ggy i do intend on running the elemental theme still, and so far i have been able to consistently play a Flamekin Harbinger turn one, which lets me fetch a Nova Chaser, then turn two i play a Brighthearth Banneret, allowing for a turn 3 Nova Chaser. and when it gets wither it becomes a notable threat, especially if i have Nest of Scarabs out, which makes him far more dangerous to block. i may try adding Ashling, the Extinguisher back into the deck, but it still seems solid as is.

Oloro_Magic thanks for the tips on the elementals, Flamekin Harbinger and Nova Chaser look like good additions to the deck. im not sure how the Brighthearth Banneret would fare, but ill do some testing with it and see how it does. also the Nest of Scarabs seems like a good addition to the deck, and ill look into other cards with similar advantages.

Flamekin Harbinger seems like a natural fit in elemental decks, as does Nova Chaser, the former letting you tutor for wither elemental and the latter being a big threat. Brighthearth Banneret could also be interesting in the deck.

Additionally, maybe add some pay offs to -1/-1 counters like Nest of Scarabs.

TheDirgeCaster -1/-1 counters , are one of the strongest anti-meta decks. If you can, you should go and play at an FNM and get a reward. I would suggest to place in Archfiend of Ifnir, Grind / Dust is also a card, that empties the field outta nowhere, Nest of Scarabs and Torment of Venom are nice removals too! This deck can go from 0 to 60 in no time !! +1

I run a very similar Hapatra -1/-1 focused deck. Have you considered Nest of Scarabs for more tokens?

goaliciousSadly Grind / Dust cannot be played in this EDH deck due to color identity.

I have been having some great fun with Hapatra myself. Here are a few budget (under 10$) suggestions for you:

And there are lots more but this should give you plenty to start.

If you own the Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons already, then i would put these mainboard and remove the Exemplar of Strength as Hapatra will give you a lot of advantage with your deck.

I would also remove Consuming Fervor as you are not an aggro deck and are looking to outvalue opponents with -1 counters and creating creatures from Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs. This gives you 4 more slots, firstly I would add 2 more lands as 20 is too low if you want to hit your 5 drops. FInally with the last 2/3 slots I would either bring back the Exemplar's or add in some more removal like, Fatal Push, Torment of Venom.

EliteMasterEric, Nest of Scarabs! I don't know how I forgot about that one. I slotted in four of those and several Prey Upon. I'd never thought about using that as essentially a kill spell when combined with tokens.

I like Appetite for the Unnatural better than Fragmentize. It takes care of Solemnity which is the card I think I should be most worried about with this deck.
