The Scorpion God Discussion

JeranF on BRG Negative Counter (MtG Casual)(Need Help)

Well, it's true that it doesn't really matter to me which creature gets it. Sadly I assume, that giving my opponent's creatures "wither" won't count as me putting the counters on creatures. So the only cards actually getting something from it are The Scorpion God and Blowfly Infestation, when a creature of mine dies. The point of my creatures getting negative counters from damage will also make me think twice before I block with one of my stronger creatures to, let's say, block trample damage. It's definitely a card to consider, but I think it's best to be careful with it and test it out first a bit.

After playing this deck for over half a year and talking with a lot of players, I decided to now finally add Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs into the deck. I still got The Scorpion God in, but I'm thinking about dropping him, since by now he's the only card with red in the deck. Maybe I also find some good red card to get in again, though. What do you guys think?

This is a situation that can happen, and I believe is addressed in the formatting help section. Essentially, there is a deck with the same name as the card. The solution is to use the longer format for the query to tell the site that you want the actual card, and not the deck. The longer query looks like this, using actual brackets in place of the double brackets text below:

double-bracketscard:card name (Set Abbreviation)double-brackets

Put in the information you want:

double-bracketscard:The Scorpion God (AKH)double-brackets

Using this, you get The Scorpion God

@ PauperPower Hmmmm, Grim Affliction looks a bit costly a 3 mana instant that drops one -1/-1. My commander and other permanents have the effect for as much of the cost or even cheaper. The profilate is nice but I don't really care much if creatures succumb due overwhelming -1/-1 counters. The main use for stuffing -1/-1 counters on creatures is to generate draw with The Scorpion God

Are you using Traxos, Scourge of Kroog just as a bomb in this deck because it triggers the big unsealing bonus? You only have 4 plays that untap him.

Rather than go why not go and utilize Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma to help you cast your unsealed friends more cheaply? Plus you won't have to worry about rotation by removing The Scorpion God

Flavour is certainly not lacking in this deck. I still feel it is incomplete without Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver. Cruel Entertainment could also be considered for this deck, as Bolas is a master at that. Control Magic, Corrupted Conscience and Mind Control are all very useful as well: Bolas does all of this and you thieve from your foe. Furthermore, Have you also considered a Jace planeswalker? After all, for a while, he worked for Bolas. The Scorpion God could also be a worthy addition.

I hope these suggestions have helped!
