Ohda on Another Haptra deck

Hey there !

I would suggest you some ramps spells like Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore ( my personnal favorite ), Farseek ( even if the fact that you don't include Bayou or Overgrown Tomb makes it less effective ), Kodama's Reach and Cultivate have the advantage of not being turn two drops so you can get your commander on the table and next turn start to ramp.

I really don't like the Tempt with Discovery and I usually am not tempted when anyone plays a card like it. It is way too expensive even if, in the right condition I get it, that cards goes bonkers and trim your deck. Also even if Harvest Season is a great card on paper, you want to ramp early, even if you didn't miss a drop you can only hope for a 3 lands spells on turn three. Considering you would need a Sol Ring in your hand, a basic of each color, Thrull Parasite, Sakura-Tribe Elder AND Noose Constrictor in your opening hand. That's a real struggle I think. You would rather have a 1-2 ramp spell most of the time.

I love the inclusion of Uncage the Menagerie but it only has 5 targets at X=3 ( if you didn't draw any yet ) and 5 at X=4, I think it would be interresting to work on that and change a bit your curve. I would prefer going for more 3CMC cards, as I think casting more cards is better than casting a big one each turn.

Some good 3 mana creatures that would fit your deck are :

Skullwinder : Better than Eternal Witness sometimes...

Banewhip Punisher : Good cheap removal that gets often overlooked.

Serrated Biskelion : Two snakes in a turn if Hapatra is on the battlefield.

Manglehorn : It can mess with a late Sol Ring or most of the ramp / filter artifacts and pretty cheap card !

Another great creature that I would love to include in my deck if the format was 101 cards is Tenacious Hunter pretty budget and a killer in 1v1.

Sorry for the long comment, hope this helps in case you were seaching for some new cards to look at for your deck that seems already fun to me :) Have a nice day !

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Nest of Scarabs, Festering Mummy, Exemplar of Strength and Tenacious Hunter could be good in there.

T1: Festering MummyT2: Exemplar of Strenght as 4/4 and let the Mummy dieT3: Consuming Ferver --> swing in for 7

Hapatra and the Scarab Nest will create some Tokens for you.

Also i would play one more Scoprion God.

I played a 4-energy last weekend and it was my first time playing against it, the second game was close, the Whirler Virtuosos I had to keep at bay. I have tried the Lost Legacy a few times on my friend and it can be a hit or a miss. It would probably be best to start in the sideboard. Instead I was thinking of adding Unburden, it could be very useful here taking away some options from the other guy. Ifnir Deadlands could be very useful here as well. See if I can find more at the shop. Tenacious Hunter could be fun to play as long as the other guy doesnt take it :)

Tenacious Hunter and Exemplar of Strength are two other good creatures that might be worth considering. I dig the deck idea, especially with the prevalence of Temur/Sultai/4-Color Energy in the meta currently. Personally I would take out the Diabolic Tutor's and probably replace them with more Solemnity and/or removal.

Some suggestions from a deck I have similar to this but is standard:

Tenacious Hunter: Something is gonna have -1/-1, so a 4/4 vigilance and deathtouch is very nice

Majestic Myriarch: Gonna have plenty of tokens, so this guy gets big. Use him to clean house towards the end.

Dont fit the wither theme all too much but are nice to consider

Replace your gifts of paradise with Channeler Initiate a mana dork and you get -1/-1 counters. also consider white mana for dust. I also like Tenacious Hunter in decks like these. Maybe Winding Constrictor to help the counter game.

If you feel like buying a planeswalker deck theres. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence

I feel a little bad, but if you had white you could Slaughter with Grind / Dust also Soul-Scar Mage Blazing Volley and any burn spells are really good.

Try some of the guys like Soulstinger Baleful Ammit Ammit Eternal Tenacious Hunter The works good -1/-1 shenanigans

Out of curiosity, have you considered Tenacious Hunter? A 4/4 for 4 with an added ability if -1/-1 counters are on the field.
