Serrated Arrows Discussion

Blo on SNEK ATTACK!!!1

Triton Yeah they're similar ;). I mostly found that, in my meta, the decks were too fast to use some of the slower cards, so I replaced them by more value creature or other stuff.

I added a utility land Arcane Lighthouse which you seem to miss. It really helped me a few times, with all the boots and greaves my meta is running haha. Ifnir Deadlands is a must have imo, as is Grasping Dunes as it's essentially more counters for free (land slots). The cycle deserts is something I'm trying atm, as they can trigger Ifnir Deadlands multiple times, but I used to run the 1mana cycle lands, as it's more efficient. I'd also recommend Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and a Reliquary Tower in the rare times you get free cards from your opponents :p.

I cutted Diabolic Tutor as I found the mana cost was often costing me a whole turn, doing nothing. Cryptolith Rite is a card that really shines in this deck, From Beyond was simply too slow for me. Contagion Clasp didn't do enough in my meta, so I added his big bro: Contagion Engine which usually puts 3-4 counters out at once at a minimum, and IF it sticks till next turn, you get double the value since it proliferates twice, as opposed to the clasp, for the same amount of mana. Serrated Arrows was a card I found too costly as well, so I cut it and replaced it with a Devoted Druid.

Another card that I was never really happy to see was Plaguemaw Beast, so I replaced it and am currently using the slot for Bontu the Glorified, which Im testing atm.

My maybeboard is for cards I want to try, but do not own (mostly), so please let me know how Phyrexian Arena and Evolutionary Leap are working out for you. I assume they do a lot. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a fun card I've never considered, but might try if I own one :p

Is there any reason for all your mana dorks?

Also, as far as additional budget suggestions go, I'd recommend Phyrexian Hydra, its a bomb, especially with the proliferate stuff. Noxious Hatchling is pretty cool as well, and has wither for additional triggers.

Devoted Druid and Kitchen Finks seem like other good starting points. I'd also consider playing some of the infinite combos with Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Viscera Seer.

A lot of the creatures with Wither can also be useful. Boggart Ram-Gang comes to mind.

The same goes for Infect. Glistener Elf, Phyrexian Vatmother, Ichorclaw Myr, Inkmoth Nexus, Phyrexian Crusader, Flensermite, and Phyrexian Hydra are probably the ones on-curve. I'd be wary of Infect, though, because it means you're trying to win via both poison counters and regular damage. You could also fall into the trap of being just a really bad Infect deck. Glistening Oil might offset this to some degree, but it's not very good on its own compared to just jamming in more creatures.

Other things include Crumbling Ashes, Dusk Urchins, Everlasting Torment, Blowfly Infestation, Fume Spitter, Scarscale Ritual, Serrated Arrows, and Woodlurker Mimic.

Scenario: You opponent controls Whispersilk Cloak. He casts Steel Hellkite. You know you want to target the Hellkite with Serrated Arrows.

  • The Hellkite is on top of the stack. Each player receives priority. You could play instants or activate abilities, but at this point, the Hellkite isn't on the field yet, so you can't target it with Arrows.

  • Hellkite resolves and enters the battlefield. The active playre (your opponent) receives priority. You can't do anything at this point.

  • You opponent puts the Cloak's equip ability on the stack. He receives priority and passes it to you.

  • This is where you can target the Hellkite with Arrows. You do so. The ability is put on top of the stack. You receive priority.

  • Nobody does anything, so Arrows' ability resolves puts a counter on Hellkite. You opponent receives priority.

  • Nobody does anything, so the Cloak's equip ability resolves.

As an example. Someone plays a Steel Hellkite. Once that has entered, they try to attach a whispersilk to it. If I want to put a -1/-1 counter on it with say Serrated Arrows at what point should I do it? When he brings it into play, pre whispersilk? Or would it still work when they have already declared equipping?

I would run Blood Artist as well daedalus as a backup plan Midnight Banshee could probably be replaced for the ammit eternal as for Torment of Hailfire it's to get rid of everything threatening Mirage Mirror can also be a back up

I'll test out my deck with these additions

but imo Midnight Banshee Serrated Arrows Splendid Agony Fume Spitter can go

Hey, thanks for the link. That will definitely help me with my lists and future builds.

The Command Zone had this deck featured in a episode of "The Command Zone" and their game series "Game Knights"

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - JLK | Game Knights #6

Here are a couple suggestions I found while researching the Hapata build.

Flourishing Defenses - More token generation.

Soul Snuffers - Very similar to Archfiend of Ifnir

Midnight Banshee - Wither, plus a great upkeep trigger

Crumbling Ashes - Similar trigger on a harder to remove enchantment and a lower CMC.

Serrated Arrows

Vhati il-Dal - A great way to two card combo kill tough creatures.

Eternal Witness - E witness for life.

Craterhoof Behemoth - A perfect finisher for all of those nasty deathtouch tokens.

Glistening Oil - Pseudo-recurring single target removal.

Eldrazi Monument - Another synergy card with the tokens from Hapatra.

Archfiend of Ifnir -The aforementioned Deadly Demon.

Woodfall Primus - Persist and a great ETB trigger.

Ulvenwald Tracker - An option.

Cards I would remove:

Intimidation - A very expensive enchantment that doesn't grant you much synergy as I don't think you will be wanting to attack often. Rather rest on your defenses until the timing is perfect. I.E. Craterhoof Behemoth or Overrun

Ferropede - Cannot justify taking a card slot. IMO.

Patron of the Orochi - Run Seedborn Muse if you are looking for this effect due to snake offering not "offering" much to reduce the cost of the creature.

Gnarled Effigy - I think you would be better suited by Trigon of Corruption if you are looking for this type of effect.

Tainted Strike - How are you going to get the last points of Infect damage?

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

Honestly the deck looks pretty solid to me. I always thought that Hapatra wouldn't make a very good commander, but I never realized that ANY -1/-1 counters would trigger it. Soulstinger might be a good addition to this deck, as a way to sink counters and then get that many counters again. If you want some more infect in the deck, perhaps Phyrexian Hydra or Tainted Strike would interest you. Maybe Liliana, Death Wielder might be of some interest, despite its cost.

There are a few cards in the deck that I'm unsure about. I'm not sure if Serrated Arrows deserves a spot in this deck.It's 4 mana and at most generate you three snakes. Maybe more with some proliferate shenanigans, but I feel like there would be a better card for this purpose. The card fits the theme well, but I'm not sure if it's worth ordering, unless you already own the card of course. I'm also not quite sure why From Beyond is included in this deck. you have plenty of other ways to generate mana through the use of Cryptolith Rite, Channeler Initiate, and cards such as Golgari Signet. The last card I'm not sure about is Ashnod's Altar. To me it just doesn't seem to have much a purpose. You're paying 3 mana to be able to sacrifice a creature and get two mana. It just doesn't seem worth it.

On a side note, I would love to see this deck play against my +1/+1 Skullbriar, Counter King deck. They're essentially completely opposite but similar in the same way.
