Splendid Agony Discussion

I would definitely take out Liliana, since she is way too expensive for what she does in this deck

Puppeteer Clique is a good card, but only partially synergistic with this deck I think

Same with Pharika, God of Affliction. I also think Splendid Agony provides less value than any of the others of its type.

Those are just a few of the ones I can see, you have some options and you just need to figure out which is doing the least work in your game plan for its cost

Since right now the only thing you're using white for is Grind it might be more consistent to just run Splendid Agony. Splendid is instant speed too so you can use it in combat with hapatra on the battlefield to make surprise snakes

Hey there!I myself have also built a Hapatra deck. I would just like to make sure you know that when you cast something like Splendid Agony You will only get one Snake from Hapatra's trigger. This is because the cards says "one or more -1/-1 counters". I hope this helped you and your deck building technique.

I am not sure about Torment of Venom, as Splendid Agony is cheaper. I swaped Decimator Beetle for Archfiend of Ifnir. But please what do you think about add Torment of Hailfire?

Well, Golgari isn't that well represented within Standard right now. The only deck to post any results recently are constrictor decks that run over $250 currently. Vraska, Relic Seeker is in a weird place, where she's a pirate that doesn't fit in with other pirates. If you want a budget deck that uses Vraska, Relic Seeker, you could try a pirates deck that uses Treasure tokens to generate the mana for Vraska. Other than that, Vraska might fit in well with a -1/-1 counters deck like this:

It currently costs approximately $75, but since you already have 1 Vraska, it would only cost roughly $60 to acquire the rest of the cards.

The Scorpion God would be good, your land count is too low. Add at least 2 more, Canyon Slough if possible. Claim / Fame isn't doing much in your deck, neither is Dire Fleet Hoarder. Replace those with Splendid Agony and Blur of Blades. Festering Mummy, Banewhip Punisher and Magmaroth are all good creatures.

Well you do bring up some interesting ideas with how you want to use your cards. My only concern with your reasoning with the use of Splendid Agony is that you can acquire similar results with a general kill spell. I also have a hard time understanding your math thinking out how this spell goes for 12 damage with only one Plague Belcher. I am just thinking on average this card only kills 1-2 of your guys with one cast, because of how many of your creatures you have with at least 2 toughness. The math would suggest that this would top out at 8 without the use of recursion/trading after damage. This ratio goes down more if you have any Lord of the Accursed on board.

Another thing that makes little sense is the comment of sacrificing an Ammit Eternal to one of these cards on your side to reset. If you are doing this then you are likely desperate, because this will do 1 damage swinging in and resetting back to full if unblocked; or will cause them to lose 3 life because of afflict for being blocked and likely getting itself killed without your aid. Only time you would want to sacrifice it would be after getting 2 or more Plague Belchers on board, but you would still want to attack first most of the time.

I my comments about the red still have merit. While I understand your logic about going for bigger bodies that can be discarded and reanimated, Wildfire Eternal still feels laking for your deck layout. The card is slow, sub-par for most decks and you run so few spells for it to interact with that I see little value from it. If you want to play something just for the purpose of reanimating then I suggest Noxious Gearhulk as it is something you can cast easier for your deck, its a big body, has a useful ETB, and when its reanimated then it will also be a zombie.

Please forgive me for being argumentative if that is how this post sounds. I merely am trying to understand your perspective better and voicing my thoughts so you can see why I have trouble understanding it.
