Perfect_Phyrexia: 1) Love the username, haha, of COURSE you'd be the one to suggest Yawgmoth ;) and 2) Yeah, he's in here, and absolutely AWESOME in testing. Just be aware that you're limited by the number of creatures your opponents possess unless you also have Nest of Scarabs (in addition to Hapatra). I need modify the primer to include the synergies with him!

BlueAutomatic: Mixed results TBH. He gets better as the deck plays in more competitive pods, since you can steal early mana dorks, and he's helpful if you can get a wide placement of counters before a board wipe... But I'm considering cutting him, yeah. He's amazing in my proper Yawgmoth deck though! Lol.

OptimalGreen: I've been considering it actually! Obviously not as good as Yawgmoth, and does take 5 mana before it does anything... but not bad either. If we wanted repeatable proliferate at that CMC, though, Plaguemaw Beast exists.

no Grave Pact ;-;

and if you want some more budget stuff... Smothering Abomination is a really underrated card imo.

Plaguemaw Beast might also be a good choice since it will basically double meren counters (then again not many of your creatures are tremendously high cmc)

might also look into some of the eldrazis that are cheap but strong as hell like Bane of Bala Ged , Pathrazer of Ulamog Decimator of the Provinces Artisan of Kozilek . and then of course if you get the money would also go for the actual eldrazi titans themselves.

you could use Endless One as a real jank way to up experience but ill let you be the judge on that one

Contagion Engine Uhm does this need explanation, Contagion Clasp Uhm does this need explanation either, Karn's Bastion(from war of the spark0 its contagion engine thats tougher to remove, Flux Channeler(from war of the spark) this is an amazing new card, Inexorable Tide proliferate on every spell is ridiculous, Plaguemaw Beast sac outlet that proliferates (sacrificing toothy for value), Viral Drake the best proliferation mana sync that can be overused with out tapping like the contagion engine/clasp or Karn's Bastion, Thrummingbird a bit tougher to get it off but another decent proliferate card. Doubling Season would be good as well but better if you had tokens as well... so id keep that out plus you'd lose it when inevitably play Bane of Progress because we all know you love that card XD also Rogue's Passage is great for this to make your big boys unblockable

There's a lot of really good cards that increase the number of counters that you're not using yet - I think especially cards that double counters like Solidarity of Heroes , Kalonian Hydra and Biogenic Upgrade could be quite deadly. Also anything that lets you proliferate each turn, like Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine , and maybe Plaguemaw Beast or Throne of Geth . Primal Vigor and Doubling Season double the number of counters coming in, and Increasing Savagery just immediately gives you loads.

For more Kicker spells, a Scryfall search should suffice, but one that stood out to me was Everflowing Chalice , as it's very cheap and helps you ramp.

One weakness I see in this deck is that your commander is pretty easy to remove, and then you lose all those counters! Alpha Authority , Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm or Mask of Avacyn could help you protect him.

Great deck, this gives me ideas of building a version of it myself. I was having a hard time wondering how to put a Hapatra deck together until I read your primer.

Thank you.

How do you feel about Plaguemaw Beast ?

Doubling Season is amazing but far outside of my budget sadly. It costs almost as much as this whole deck does!

Contagion Engine is likewise expensive. I like Plaguemaw Beast , I even have one here, but do you have a recommendation on what to take out for it?

Skullclamp is interesting, but seems a bit redundant and expensive. It also doesn't fit the theme of my deck sadly.

This seems like a very budget friendly list so I apologize if some of my suggestions are too expensive.

Doubling Season is a perfect card for Ghave: more counters and more tokens!

Proliferate is also a great keyword for a deck like this so I would suggest Contagion Engine and Plaguemaw Beast .

Skullclamp is a drawing powerhouse when you have plenty of saprolings laying about so I would highly suggest its inclusion.

Ooh, have you considered Loyal Guardian , Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Ezuri, Claw of Progress ? Possibly Ivy Lane Denizen as well... Some creature-based proliferate effects (such as Plaguemaw Beast or Thrummingbird ) might not go amiss!

I really like the idea of Animar creature-based Voltron; it's a fresh take on the commander that I've never considered before!
