Quillspike Discussion

Izu_Korasu on Hapatra Sniper Sneks

Quillspike+Devoted Druid also gives unilimited sneks if haptra is on board.

Phage the Untouchable should probably be dropped from the list, there are too many ways for it to backfire (Eldrazi Displacer/Oblivion Ring for example)

Carnifex Demon seems fun here, especially with Crumbling Ashes, Consumptive Goo/Fevered Convulsions.

Flourishing Defenses and Nest of Scarabs seem like good ways to flood the board with tokens in addition to haptra's ability

As it sits right now, you're completely open to removal and your CMC for the deck is nearly at 3 because of a few cards. In modern, you won't likely get those high cost cards out most of the time because your opponent will aggro your mana combo cards with removal or kill spells. So, you need a good back up strategy that can do a lot of damage without that heavy mana cost or combo reliance. Doing a solid Elf tribal here would help you out a lot, and you can keep Quillspike in the deck as a wincon with Rite of Consumption and Devoted Druid. You can just pump up Quillspike then use Rite of Consumption to deal lethal. If it doesn't work out and gets countered, the other Elves in the deck will still synergize and have a chance to win the game. Especially the Joraga Warcaller and Immaculate Magistrate combo. Then add Shaman of the Pack for a quick shot directly at the opponent. Imperious Perfect can help produce Elves and buffs them. Glissa, the Traitor can pretty much block ANYTHING because of her First Strike and Deathtouch combo. She can also be used to fetch artifacts from your graveyard, for instance.. say.. a Ratchet Bomb.

I really like this deck, maybe two Verdant Catacombs and four Overgrown Tombs would round it out better for those times you don't get the mana combo from your Elf early game.

Grisly Spectacle would probably be better off traded out for Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, or Doom Blade also.

I'm not sure that Conspiracy and Turntimber Ranger is a great strategy either. It's super costly and you might just be better off making an ally themed deck.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast will completely negate your mama combo that Devoted Druid and Quillspike create. If you can't give your creatures a -1/-1 counter then the effect that untaps Devoted Druid is nullified because it can't create the counter.

The idea you have is great, but it does need work. You could do more of an Elf tribal with Quillspike and Rite of Consumption as part of your Wincon.

By "Steve," do you mean Devoted Druid? I just don't see any reason to run with him, and I don't really feel like adding Quillspike to the mix, as they would only end up interacting with each other. However, I do think I need to add some more artifact/enchantment removal, so I will be looking into that.

There are many goodies missing from your deck my friend. You have not enough sac outlets. There are so many good ones that you can acquire thay are dirt cheap. Altar of Dementia + Devoted Druid + Quillspike gets you an infinite mill combo. Use Reanimate or another animation spell to get Quillspike back and do it again. This could also be an infinite damage combo. Phyrexian Altar is also a card you should includ. Viscera Seer I am glad to see it is in the deck because you get so much value with this card. You sac a creature to the Seer, you get to scry and ger an experience counter for Meren of Clan Nel Toth. Feel free to check out either of my two Meren builds. Both in the folder love for the golgari

Quillspike is a no brainer in this kind of deck, but where's his combo counterpart Devoted Druid?

I love how on theme this deck is. It could use a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed if you can spare for another one or something else with similar effect so you can combo a little better. Definitely mainboard Crumbling Ashes if you can get it. I might throw in some tutors just to raise your consistency. It always helps to go get the card you need for a particular board state. In general, I like how interactive this can be, but I don't think it has the late game power that it needs to be really good. You have good value and synergy, but there's not a group of win condition cards unless you count a combo'd out Quillspike. The good thing is most of your kill spells have a creature attached to them so you might be able to overrun people, but board wipes would pretty much wreck you until you have time to get them back and recast them all. You just might want to look into more combos or bigger win conditions. Still, I do love how synergistic this deck is. Most everything is on board the theme.

Blowfly Infestation with Crumbling Ashes is nice.

Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction,etc. can also help ensure the spread of your counters.

Quillspike is nice for removing the counters that end up on your own creatures and also forms an infinite combo with Devoted Druid which is already in the deck.

Also since she specifically make's snake tokens, Seshiro the Anointed might be ok but i'm not as sure about that one
