TheDirgeCaster -1/-1 counters , are one of the strongest anti-meta decks. If you can, you should go and play at an FNM and get a reward. I would suggest to place in Archfiend of Ifnir, Grind / Dust is also a card, that empties the field outta nowhere, Nest of Scarabs and Torment of Venom are nice removals too! This deck can go from 0 to 60 in no time !! +1

If you own the Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons already, then i would put these mainboard and remove the Exemplar of Strength as Hapatra will give you a lot of advantage with your deck.

I would also remove Consuming Fervor as you are not an aggro deck and are looking to outvalue opponents with -1 counters and creating creatures from Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs. This gives you 4 more slots, firstly I would add 2 more lands as 20 is too low if you want to hit your 5 drops. FInally with the last 2/3 slots I would either bring back the Exemplar's or add in some more removal like, Fatal Push, Torment of Venom.

Hi Ghosty, thx for help me keep the MBC dream alive! =D I'll ask to upvote to reach more people to build it!

About the rotation, I agree with you; but, till there, I cant ignore the power of Collective Brutality, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and (the huge) Thought-Knot Seer.

Torment of Scarabs would be a nice addition. The deck has 19 removals (including 3x Collective Brutality). Maybe removing 2 or 3 to make room for Torment of Scarabs would be nice. Idk about removing lands. Control decks cant afford run with 21, 22 lands - 24 can be viable, perhaps.

Torment of Venom its a little heavy. And we dont profit from -1/-1 counters. And compete with lot of strong cards in its curve. For our 4th turn: Torment of Venom, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Thought-Knot Seer?

Tonight I'll playtest (including Torment of Scarabs) and post the results!

Good idea!

I'd suggest to cut to 21-23 lands and add Torment of Scarabs and Torment of Venom and probably Wretched Camel

Btw I'm also concerned about OGW and a bit about SOI cards – they're about to leave Standard. I guess HOU and AKH have plenty control/discard cards in

Why no Fatal Push, Lethal Sting or Torment of Venom? The first is the best removal spell there is for one mana and the others work perfect with the theme

Kill a creature with Torment of Venom, get a deathsnake and 3 insects (best case scenario)

The deck looks a little light on the immediate removal of early threats. Have you considered Lethal Sting or Torment of Venom?
