JuQ on That Girl Is Poison - budget Hapatra

3 months ago

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.

Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.

Fevered Convulsions , and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...

Decimator of the Provinces is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple Overrun would give you a better bang for your mana. Predatory Rampage will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and Revenge of the Hunted is a one player board wipe. I also find Loyal Guardian to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.

on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand , Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.

These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor .The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.

If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts

Well let's see.

Chainbreaker (Doesn't proc Hapatra, Enters with and Placing are different. I also don't think -1 removal is terribly necessary)

Cauldron of Souls (Same as above on no Hapatra interaction, and most of your board presence will be snakes that cannot take advantage of the return. This one is definitely ok to keep, I just didn't like my results.)

Serrated Arrows, Trigon of Corruption (repeatable counters, but One a turn max, Arrows run out quickly, and Trigon takes investment to use and charge. Fevered Convulsions, while more expensive, is not so limited)

Quillspike (A lot better than Chainbreaker, does more with the counter removal. Cut it last)

I also see you swapped Zulaport Cutthroat for Blood Artist. Change that back :) While its true the Artist work on Any creature death, the Cutthroat hits all opponents for each of yours. He'll pull ahead with all your snakes.

I like running Driven // Despair in my Hapatra deck. It can draw you a heap of cards, and it's not hard to cast the aftermath part of the card in the same turn.

I'd also run Fevered Convulsions over either Trigon of Corruption or Serrated Arrows.

You'll want some faster card draw and creatures, and more go-wide pay offs. Disciple of Bolas, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist, Grim Backwoods, Sangromancer, Rogue's Passage, Whip of Erebos are all good cards to add.

Midnight Banshee is a major nonbo in your deck. It kills all of your snakes that you get from it, as well as many of your other creatures.

I dont see a reason to run Soul of New Phyrexia, Rite of Belzenlok, Rofellos's Gift, or Black Market.

Cut: Trigon of Corruption, Serrated Arrows, and Culling Dais. These cards are all too slow.

For lands you'll want to avoid tapped lands that dont further your game plan some how. Replace with basics or fast-duals: Foul Orchard, Golgari Guildgate, Golgari RotFarm, Jungle Hollow, Khalni Garden, Mortuary Mire, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Cabal Stronghold. Manabasecrafter.com provides a very helpful list of every mana source you can play given your commander.

Made a few adjustments.

Took out:

Grim Haruspex for Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Decided the scry effect is much more powerful. Plus, seeing how I am somewhat heavy creature based, adding a green mana for a draw is an added bonus. At the same time, I dont want to be drawing into lands. Also, if I'm going to combo off (ex: mikeaus, the unhallowed and Devoted Druid, I dont want to have the ability where I have to draw, then I'll practically mill myself out. Same CMC.

Soul Snuffers for Harbinger of Night. Same CMC, but I feel the upkeep trigger is stronger here. Then again, I can always swap back.

Journey to Eternity  Flip for Contamination. Same CMC. Nothing really changes, except for my the fact I have more control over my opponents. Forcing their lands to only produce black mana. I want to entice my opponents to use their destroy permanent spells on this rather than my combos. I'd rather have fun with it and it doesn't hurt me as much considering majority of my deck is practically black.

Serrated Arrows for Trigon of Corruption. Same CMC. I felt the need to put charge counters back on trigon would allow me to use it more often than serrated arrows. The ability to put on and take off charge counters as opposed to just take off seems very flexible.

Comment below. Thanks.

usaDiabetic Westvale Abbey  Flip seems pretty nice, although more of a backup since the deck has so many finishersTrigon of Corruption seems really mana intense for only 1 counter a turn

Parallel Lives is good, but im not sure if it's necessary since the deck makes so many tokens and i try to avoid some more expensive cards.Thanks for the suggestions tho

Maybe throw in Westvale Abbey  Flip as a finisher.

Trigon of Corruption for more counters.

Parallel Lives for more tokens.

Either way, sweet build. I'm looking to build a Hapatra deck, and yours looks awesome, epically for the price!

Hey, thanks for the link. That will definitely help me with my lists and future builds.

The Command Zone had this deck featured in a episode of "The Command Zone" and their game series "Game Knights"

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - JLK | Game Knights #6

Here are a couple suggestions I found while researching the Hapata build.

Flourishing Defenses - More token generation.

Soul Snuffers - Very similar to Archfiend of Ifnir

Midnight Banshee - Wither, plus a great upkeep trigger

Crumbling Ashes - Similar trigger on a harder to remove enchantment and a lower CMC.

Serrated Arrows

Vhati il-Dal - A great way to two card combo kill tough creatures.

Eternal Witness - E witness for life.

Craterhoof Behemoth - A perfect finisher for all of those nasty deathtouch tokens.

Glistening Oil - Pseudo-recurring single target removal.

Eldrazi Monument - Another synergy card with the tokens from Hapatra.

Archfiend of Ifnir -The aforementioned Deadly Demon.

Woodfall Primus - Persist and a great ETB trigger.

Ulvenwald Tracker - An option.

Cards I would remove:

Intimidation - A very expensive enchantment that doesn't grant you much synergy as I don't think you will be wanting to attack often. Rather rest on your defenses until the timing is perfect. I.E. Craterhoof Behemoth or Overrun

Ferropede - Cannot justify taking a card slot. IMO.

Patron of the Orochi - Run Seedborn Muse if you are looking for this effect due to snake offering not "offering" much to reduce the cost of the creature.

Gnarled Effigy - I think you would be better suited by Trigon of Corruption if you are looking for this type of effect.

Tainted Strike - How are you going to get the last points of Infect damage?
