Symbiotic Deployment Discussion

I like the addition of Torment of Venom for it's synergy, and of course Necroskitter is vital, as is splendid agony. I think perhaps Symbiotic Deployment is unnecessary for the number of creatures

Necro is powerful for sure, but actually not quite the effect I am looking for since it draws only at end step. Symbiotic Deployment is not bad though, I will consider it for sure

Hey, Necropotence is among the most powerful cards in Commander with this effect . Symbiotic Deployment , has potential with lots of Goblin tokens.

Hour of Promise or Pir's Whim in place of Solemn Simulacrum. Horn of Greed for land-based card draw. Skullclamp could let you draw from the small tokens. Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond let you draw from the big ones. Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you draw from sacrificing tokens. Shamanic Revelation draws lots of cards and gains you life. Symbiotic Deployment works too.

Sporemound makes tokens from landfall and goes infinite with Life and Limb. Dunes of the Dead and Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai are lands that make tokens when they are sacrificed. Helm of the Host is great when equipped to creatures that make tokens. Blade of Selves might work too. Nacatl War-Pride is really strong with token doublers.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Mana Echoes, and Xenagos, the Reveler will generate a lot of mana from tokens. Druids' Repository adds mana when they attack, and Pitiless Plunderer adds mana when they die.

To make your tokens bigger, try Beastmaster Ascension, Guul Draz Overseer, Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Bloodspore Thrinax, Ogre Battledriver, or In the Web of War.

So it seems like the plan of your deck is to generate lots of snake tokens. I think Harbinger of Night and Midnight Banshee are worth an include even if it kills your snakes, since Hapatra's ability will make new snakes anyway. The Banshee spares Hapatra. Champion of Lambholt will grow pretty big and makes your creatures unblockable. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed has so much synergy with a -1/-1 deck that you should consider including it to save your creatures. Eldrazi Monument and Smothering Abomination should work well if you have lots of snakes to sacrifice as well. Razaketh, the Foulblooded lets you tutor whatever you need. Harvester of Souls and Symbiotic Deployment should draw you lots of cards. You probably need more ramp to cast some of your bigger cards. I would suggest cutting Spontaneous Generation, Myriarch, Durable Handicraft, and Praetors' Counsel.

Primal Vigor is definitely worth playing for Ghave because it helps you a lot more than it helps the other players. Smothering Abomination gives lots of card draw when you're sacrificing Saprolings anyway. Mindless Automaton and Symbiotic Deployment are also good. Concordant Crossroads lets you attack or tap for mana right away. Gyre Sage ramps you well, and Crystalline Crawler goes infinite with Doubling Season or Primal Vigor.

Definitely consider Lord of Atlantis since most other players won't have merfolk. Not quite sure about Crab Umbra and Night Soil. Bear Umbra and Druids' Repository could be good alternatives that help the mana. Symbiotic Deployment is an unusual one you can consider that works really well with Merrow Commerce and Murkfiend Liege.
