A -1/-1 counter deck that is geared towards placing -1/-1 counters on it's own creatures. Main win con is flooding the field with 1/1s.

There are a few fun interactions going on in the deck. Some fun combos are Black Sun's Zenith + Nest of Scarabs , Black Sun's Zenith + Necroskitter , Dusk Urchins + Scarscale Ritual , Bitter Ordeal + Blowfly Infestation + Nest of Scarabs , or Blowfly Infestation + Nest of Scarabs + Winding Constrictor .

Nest of Scarabs This card really is the bread and butter of the deck. Originally I intended the deck to revolve around Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, but Nest has stolen the spotlight with it's "...that many..." wording.

Dusk Urchins Often times this can draw me 3-6 cards depending on if I'm hitting it with Scarscale Ritual or Black Sun's Zenith not to mention if I have a Winding Constrictor out.

Everlasting Torment A nice little card here as it allows my tokens to replace themselves upon blocking or being blocked. Additionally it allows me to get -1/-1 counters going for Blowfly Infestation.

Blowfly Infestation Pretty much only in here to create an infinite loop of killing / creating 1/1 tokens with Nest of Scarabs or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Also creates infinite 1/1s if both Nests and Hapatra (or 2 Nests!) are out, or if you have only one Nest/Hapatra and a Winding Constrictor.

Bitter Ordeal I threw in a couple of these in the hopes that I can end the game on the same turn that I go off with the above combo, whether or not it creates infinite 1/1s.

I've pretty much settled out on what I'm running mainboard for the deck, though I am looking at Channeler Initiate for some ramp.

I need to figure out a sideboard now. I'd like to include some good protection spells and maybe some more removal to interrupt my opponent's deck. The deck runs fairly well, but it can be disrupted quite a lot if the main pieces are knocked out. I would be pulling out things like Blowfly Infestation and Bitter Ordeal for sideboard.
