Made a few adjustments.
Grim Haruspex for Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Decided the scry effect is much more powerful. Plus, seeing how I am somewhat heavy creature based, adding a green mana for a draw is an added bonus. At the same time, I dont want to be drawing into lands. Also, if I'm going to combo off (ex: mikeaus, the unhallowed and Devoted Druid, I dont want to have the ability where I have to draw, then I'll practically mill myself out. Same CMC.
Journey to Eternity Flip for Contamination. Same CMC. Nothing really changes, except for my the fact I have more control over my opponents. Forcing their lands to only produce black mana. I want to entice my opponents to use their destroy permanent spells on this rather than my combos. I'd rather have fun with it and it doesn't hurt me as much considering majority of my deck is practically black.
Serrated Arrows for Trigon of Corruption. Same CMC. I felt the need to put charge counters back on trigon would allow me to use it more often than serrated arrows. The ability to put on and take off charge counters as opposed to just take off seems very flexible.
Comment below. Thanks.

Daedalus19876 - Ive been tinkering with my hapatra deck lately and Throne of the God-Pharaoh has been insane. I played recently and an opponent who was playing edgar cast a Blind Obedience which just won me the game once I started making tokens. With that in mind, i started thinking Earthcraft would be great in this deck combined w/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Not only is is crazy ramp when you have a good amount of snakes out its a better Cryptolith Rite since it gets around summoning sickness. have you tried earthcraft? i will be testing it before spending the $30 pricetag.
I've also played other games against opposing token decks and I've realized that the more creatures on the field the better when you cast mass -1/-1 counter spells such as Black Sun's Zenith or Soul Snuffers. It just gives you so many tokens, so the more creatures on the field the better. And forget about it if you have Flourishing Defenses or Nest of Scarabs on the field; the triggers get out of control. With this in mind I think that Sylvan Offering can be a great card for hapatra and with the large amount of mana we can get from earthcraft, cryptolith rite, a flipped growing rites, or even ashnods altar it could be huge.heres a link to my deck:
Hapatra - Sneks n countersI am also testing Gruesome Fate, Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, and Path of Discovery.I think Path of Discovery could be really great in this deck and I switched out Fecundity for it recently but haven't been able to test it. I would love to hear your thoughts about these cards!

Suggestions on cuts:
1 Crumbling Ashes (you have 2 copies in the deck)Serrated Arrows (honestly it's not that good. It's slow, and for 4 mana you can do lots of other things)Trigon of Corruption (see Serrated Arrows. These are both absurdly slow)Spinebiter (you could get Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon for 1 less mana and it would have higher power. Not to mention Phyrexian Hydra for 1 less mana as well. Don't bother with this awful card even if it does have infect)Twinblade Slasher is not very good and you have very few ways to buff him to reliability.Both Liliana, Death Wielder and her tutor card are terrible and you can do better than what benefits she offers over the course of 3-4 turns.Core Prowler is also pretty terrible. He proliferates once, whoo hoo. That's pretty mediocre for a 4 mana 2/2 with no evasion, and you don't have, say, Mikaeus to make repeated use of his ability.
That's 8 cuts. You should be at 102 after that and only have to cut 2 more cards.
You should look into Midnight Banshee, Soul Snuffers and Carnifex Demon. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and creatures with Undying would also be strong options because -1/-1 and +1/+1 counters cancel each other out, meaning you can re-use their abilities again and again for benefit.

Another thing to consider if you haven't already is cards that trigger on ETB like Warstorm Surge. The Scorpion God will most likely keep going back to your hand rather than the command zone making recasting him easier.
I feel like these effects are better in a re-animator shell or a deck where cheating creatures in multiple times is a thing... But 6 damage is nothing to sneeze at. My deck runs about 7 creatures that have ETB triggers but you could run a few more, a handful of recursion and Panharmonicon and make that a route to victory.
Soul Snuffers and Skinrender come to mind as benefiting from pan. I also think Banewhip Punisher is a very effective card for this deck. Especially if you are running reanimation at all. It all but ensures at least one creature will die with a counter on it.

Hi, we're doing this game where we all chose a god as commanders and one of my friend is playing The Scorpion God. Since I'm playing with Iroas, God of Victory, I can't do soldiers or goblins tactics because he's going to beat them up as fast as the come with cards like Soul Snuffers. So I'm wondering what should I do to my deck to either prevent/remove counters or just go around it?
Right now I'm trying not to use any 1/1 creatures or token creatures. Although, I have no Idea if I can get a good strategy trough that...
Any thoughts will help :)

I second the suggestion of Soul Snuffers, and would like to add Midnight Banshee. Both of these cards give lots of -1/-1 counters across the board, generating tons of snakes, as well as giving lots of death triggers from your own snakes dying and coming back to synergize with Blood Artist and the like.
Wickerbough Elder is a great piece of artifact/enchantment removal that can be reset with your commander. I also like Vhati il-Dal for his ability to either save you from lots of damage or help you kill things with -1/-1 counters. Finally, it feels like you've got a lot of cards in the deck that are just vanilla creatures with wither. While wither synergizes quite nicely with your commander, there are tons of creatures that work well with -1/-1 counters that fulfill more of a purpose than just giving them in combat.

I just built one of these! Obligatory Hapatra Deck
I recommend taking out the slower sorceries and reanimation spells, plus removing tribal stuff like Seshiro. Instead focus on the Enchantment synergies like Blowfly Infestation, and tutors (even Diabolic Tutor) to help make them work faster.
My favorite wincon is anything that comes in with -1/-1 counters + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and a sacrifice outlet. This loops for infinite snakes.
