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!

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.
