Serrated Arrows Discussion

noshadowkick on Asps! Very Dangerous! (Hapatra)

@Wiggyman, thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about Vhati but honestly, he seems like a trap card. He has to live a turn before he has an effect and then I have to be able to place a counter. Seems like too many hoops to jump through just to kill a single creature.

I've put some thought and analysis into my list and these are the changes I'm thinking of making:

-Channeler Initiate, + Edge of Autumn: Channeler is a nice way to get a token but it's nowhere close to Devoted Druid and it's slow. Edge of Autumn is more reliable early ramp and a good discard effect for Archfiend of Ifnir.

-Defiant Greatmaw, +Fauna Shaman: Greatmaw was a janky way to protect Hapatra from my global -1/-1 effects but it's a weak card. The Shaman is another tutor and a great discard outlet.

-Midnight Banshee, +Grave Titan: I felt like the Banshee was a bit overpriced for it's effect given the fact that Harbinger of Night exists. The Gravy Train is a great token producer and is threatening enough all on it's own.

-Puppeteer Clique, +Archfiend of Ifnir: Ifnir is the crux of this whole update and I hope he'll be a much more powerful and reliable threat than Clique.

-Skinrender, +Wood Elves: More creature based ramp is needed. Skinrender was also a weak card even when I was 100% all in on -1/-1 counters.

-Terastodon, +Hornet Queen: Want a baller token producer as a Natural Order target and the evasive tokens from Queen will work well with Triumph of the Hordes and some of my other pump effects.

-Serrated Arrows, +Bitterblossom: Out with a weak token producer that is contingent on my general, in with an awesome token producer that is a staple across the format.

-Blowfly Infestation, +Vampiric Tutor: Blowfly does nothing on it's own and Vamp Tutor is just a great card.

-Eldrazi Monument, +Creakwood Liege: Out with a redundant pump effect, in with more token production. I like that the Liege makes Hapatra a 4/4 also.

- Obelisk Spider , +Reclamation Sage: Spider was a cool combo piece with Blowfly Infestation but Rec Sage is needed removal.

-2 basics, +2 cycling lands: more discard effects for Archfiend.

-Grasping Dunes, +Geier Reach Sanitarium: More discard effects for Archfiend.

That's what I'm thinking so far. I'll update my list once the cardboard is actually in the sleeves. I'm hoping that these changes make the deck a little more flexible and interactive.

It may sound crazy, but Serrated Arrows actually does lots of work in -1/-1 counter decks! You already have the Proliferate engines to keep it going too!

Josh of the Command Zone on YouTube built a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck and I was amazed at how much work they did, so I'd highly recommend it!

So many comments....just here to say im stealing Serrated Arrows for my Hapatra deck. Love it, and the deck, brotha.

I would pump up your negative counters and add in some proliferate cards.

Contagion Engine would help thia deck a lot. Same with Cauldron of Souls and Contagion Clasp, maybe even Spread the Sickness.

You'll probably want some sweepers like Toxic Deluge maybe even Languish.

Another -1/-1 counter card that could work is Serrated Arrows.

Other than that, I like the direction this deck is going, just needs some slight tuning to make sure you get maximum value from Scorpion Gods ability.

Parallel Lives and Doubling Season for more tokens.

Serrated Arrows for more counters.

Verdant Catacombs, Hissing Quagmire, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for lands.

Craterhoof Behemoth Chord of Calling as a finisher and a tutor.

Either way you go, sweet build friend!

Nice deck... Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons is just a hoot.

I've been playing with my Hapatra deck for a while now, and have a couple suggestions for things to cut and add:

1) With all the - 1/-1 counters you have available, I haven't found board wipes like Decree of Pain or Toxic Deluge to be very useful. I'd recommend Black Sun's Zenith above each of these due to the sweet synergy.

2) I think Contagion Clasp could be cut for Serrated Arrows. The former is just too expensive for what it does, whereas the latter costs half and can be proliferated to add more arrow counters.

Regardless, nice deck!

ErebusX Thanks, I'm going to try to make some room for them cause they do seem to fit really well!

usaDiabetic Yoo I'm for sure going to add Become Immense in! I actually had Serrated Arrows in initially but it ended up being one of the last cards I cut. I'm with you though yo, I've never really understood why so many people are vehemently against infect.

Become Immense is a must.

This is kind of a pet card with Hipatra, but Serrated Arrows?

Also, forget what everyone else says, infect in commander is great!
