Torment of Venom Discussion

I run a Hapatra deck too but i dont have many suggestions because most of the cards i would name are already here. Suggestions: I know that Lethal Sting is a sorcery but its like a Murder that gives you a deathtouch snake so... I really like Torment of Venom in my deck because of the leech plus the snake plus the chance of killing a creature. Decimator Beetle is very good with cards like Exemplar of Strength. Soulstinger isn't bad because they wont really try hard to block/kill it.

An exception would be if you used something like Torment of Venom to kill it by lowering toughness, as it would cause the power to be 0 or less when it dies, so the triggers will still happen but last known information will cause you not to lose life.

Thank you for tips. I will remove Hazoret's Undying Fury as well as the Torment of Venom and most likely replace with Magma Spray and/or Lightning Strike.

I will be looking to acquire some Fatal Push soon to pack some punch into the deck.Repeating Barrage will definetly get replaced by something quicker.Also was thinking of putting Razaketh's Rite in the mainboard or the sideboard to be able to Pull out Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh when I have the chance.

Defintely gonna work on that soon. Thanks man

This is an interesting deck you have here. I think you may want to cut Repeating Barrage and Torment of Venom in favor of Lightning Strike or Abrade. You may even want to use Shock, Magma Spray, or Fatal Push so you have some 1 mana option to play.

The reasoning for Repeating Barrage is that you are heavy on sorcery spells, your mana curve is a bit high, and I think the instant speed removal will help out more for combat tricks (especially with Spellweaver Eternal).

Why I suggest removing Torment of Venom is purely because its mana cost to function. While I like the torment style cards flavor, the card is unfortunately cumbersome to play most of the time as it is a 4 mana removal spell that doesn't always kill its target. Cutting this for some earlier removal should help with how fast a lot of decks are running or allow you to disrupt your opponent easier on their turn.

I would also Suggest removing Hazoret's Undying Fury in general as it is a very expensive gamble card. Any lands exiled with it are just wasted cards and you could accidentally hit Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh or Never (mana cost seen as both halves) and not be able to cast either. This is a steep price to pay for not being able to untap next turn also. I know you have tricks to play the card for free through Wildfire Eternal or get extra mana from Neheb, the Eternal, but this is still a gamble card that can bite you hard if not careful.

I really like the zombie theme you went with this and how well that should support The Scarab God . Best of luck with the deck.

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?
