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

Remorseless Punishment and Torment of Hailfire are both big "punisher" effects - making your opponents choose. Also Torment of Scarabs and Torment of Venom, although they're both pretty lackluster.

Any particular reason to make this Legacy instead of Modern? Idk a whole lot about Legacy but I feel more janky, slow decks like this one will get crushed. Switching to Modern loses Dark Ritual, Chain Lightning, and part of your manabase, but the mana should be pretty consistent since your 2 colors and have plenty of duals. Also, Dark Ritual could be swapped for the less powerful rituals such as Simian Spirit Guide or Pyretic Ritual without lowering the power level dramatically and bringing it to a format where it will likely be able to win more games.

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
