Serrated Arrows Discussion

xaarvaxus on Dr. Yawgmoth

Midnight Banshee seems like it would be amazing with Yawg.

A couple of old school cards that may work well are Serrated Arrows and Fevered Convulsions . Slow but steady sources of -1/-1 counters.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a great addition as well. I know it's not cheap but it is less expensive than Cabal Coffers and won't require a combo with Tomb to work.

Not sure what Command Tower is being used for. Is there a reason to not use just another basic Swamp?

Serrated Arrows might be faster at 4 CMC and better protected than Triskelion (doesn't die to creature removal/damage/board wipes) and combos better with your other peices, notably your commander. You just have to regenerate it with proliferate one time more often. While damage heals, you might often find uses for having -1/-1 counters on opponents' things. Thought it might be worth mentioning.

I am using Toothy as well. I have Helix Pinnicle in there. I found Serrated Arrows to distribute some -1 counters with the proliferate in the deck, and I'm going to try Mind Unbound .

JuQ on That Girl Is Poison - budget Hapatra

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.

Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.

Fevered Convulsions , and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...

Decimator of the Provinces is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple Overrun would give you a better bang for your mana. Predatory Rampage will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and Revenge of the Hunted is a one player board wipe. I also find Loyal Guardian to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.

on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand , Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.

These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor .The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.

If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts

You know what is fun with proliferate? Hickory Woodlot :)

Maybe not in this build... Maybe in simic with Saprazzan Skerry and with Thrummingbird , Contentious Plan , Teferi's Time Twist maybe also Steady Progress .

Removal? Serrated Arrows + proliferate to add -1/-1 and arrowhead counters.

And maybe, maybe Blastoderm ?

Serrated Arrows and Icatian Javelineers are good cards against aggro decks that also have good synergies with blink effects

enpc (re:op) I loved the find of Serrated Arrows, and though there are other proliferating things I see what you mean. So it is now being replaced by the above mentioned Chromatic Lantern.

Cards like Serrated Arrows are way too slow and too commander reliant. Also, Fuel for the Cause as your only counterspell is a waste of a slot. You could very easily replace them with more ramp.
