Dude u should totally look at my deck its just like this but Jund deck:Jund -1/-1 Counter deck Competitive
August 14, 2017 3:39 p.m.
TepigAggro Thought about Jund, but I like this Abzan action better because of Grind / Dust and the synergy with Archfiend of Ifnir. Also Anointed Procession is pretty badass with a ton of snakes and insex. Have fun playing with your Junk...

Even though it is a -1/-1 focused deck, I'd run Torment of Hailfire as it can be a total game changer even if they take 9 or discard 3 cards.
September 15, 2017 1:31 a.m.
superhuman21 thanks, like the card, but not sure about in this deck. I'll add it to the maybeboard for now and see if I need something like that down the line.
September 15, 2017 4:38 p.m.
What are your thoughts on cards from the new set?
September 17, 2017 12:32 a.m.
FrankTHErabbit, Haven't looked too much at how the new Ixalan cards would add to this deck yet. Off the top of my head the token theme could work well with the new Vraska, Relic Seeker, Costly Plunder , and Growing Rites of Itlimoc.

Panharmonicon (PH): If an artifact or creature entering the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
AP: If an effect would create one or more tokens under your control, it creates twice that many of those tokens instead.
So with Hapatra and AP and PH out, for each -1/-1 counter placed, I get a snake, an anointed snake, and a panharmonisnake. That's pretty great and all, but with only one AP in the deck, and having to replace other -1/-1 generators with PH, I feel like that's going to take away from the speed of the deck. I think there are better uses of these two cards in a token oriented deck rather than a -1/-1 deck... like a bw token deck Servo-Schematic Addict Insane - I would love to squeeze PH in there, but there's already almost too much self-interaction.
Banewhip P: When Banewhip Punisher enters the battlefield, you may put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.
Cute, but not worth playing PH just for a few extra -1/-1s I don't think.

Creeper_Math Neither is that great, esp in this deck. They both give choices to you opponents so that they can decide which is better for them at the time. However, while the Torment of Scarabs (ToS) works each turn vs one opponent, the Torment of Hailfire (ToH) hits all opponents and can be pumped up to do this multiple times at once, which is a much better effect if you want to close out a game. The ToH when spending 4 mana (same as ToS) gives you the effect of the ToS twice during the same turn (and hitting all opponents if a multiplayer game). Spending 6 on ToH means that you will be setting everyone back hitting them with that effect 4 times. Where ToS would have to stick around for 4 turns on the board in order to achieve that same effect. Sure ToS is a fun curse to ping you opponent every turn, but imo it isn't in the same league as a card that can do the same effect multiple times at once to help you close out a game.

I just built a very similar deck to this. That's how I found yours, I searched for decks with Hapatra to compare.
Have you considered using Throne-of-the-God-Pharoah since you have tons of creatures? I added a vehicle I can "crew", choosing to tap everything. Then all those tapped swarms equal direct damage in my end phase. If the vehicle is Cultivator's-Caravan, it's also an extra mana source you can use for white (or any color). Help get your procession down on the board.
September 28, 2017 12:03 p.m.
SteamandLight Thanks, yeah I've considered the Throne. I like the idea to crew and/or tap using Rishkar to trigger the throne. Could be a lot of fun to play that way and not have to lose snakes in battle. However I don't think I'll go there quite yet with mine as I think it takes away from the -1/-1 swarm and I want to go all-in on that for now.
September 28, 2017 12:16 p.m.
One card that I was thinking could have potential in this deck as a -1/-1 counter is Tragic Slip. If you sac or player sacs a creature hit em with this and the creature should be gone as well.
September 28, 2017 4:40 p.m.
superhuman21 That's not a standard legal card, but it would work well in a sacrifice oriented modern or legacy deck for sure.
September 28, 2017 4:53 p.m.
I really like your deck, thanks for sharing! 2 questions: What do you think of Ramunap Excavator and Collective Effort?
October 1, 2017 3:42 p.m.
HOPMONSTER. I'm totally going to take your idea of Anointed Procession and Panharmonicon and put it into my Sigarda EDH deck. Thank you for the idea.
Combo-ing Panharmonicon+Anointed Procession+Strionic Resonator = huge multiplier effects for ETBs.
October 1, 2017 4:13 p.m.
romonro Ramunap Excavator is def a cool card, but I don't know that there are enough incentives to play it in this deck. If I find that there are often a lot of deserts in my gy, maybe I'll consider it, but right now I don't think it'd get enough use to warrant inclusion.
Collective Effort is interesting, but its leaving standard rotation.
October 2, 2017 1:53 p.m.
superhuman21 Awesome, that sounds like a fun deck. Hope you can get that combo online.
October 2, 2017 1:54 p.m.
Definitely need Ammit Eternal on main board. With it nothing short of a board wipe will leave you completely open and you can just side a couple Heroic Intervention for matchups where that would happen (mono white, UW control, etc.)
If you ever do decide to splash red into this deck then Consuming Fervor is borderline broken on the Ammit as well.
October 3, 2017 10:22 a.m.
Thanks Gim, I am a fan, I just don't have any of those Dammit Eternals!
That Fervor is pretty funny. I think a Rakdos or Jund -1/-1 deck would be fun too. Would have each of those along with a couple scorpion gods.
I think I just like the idea of pinging my opponents creatures and overwhelming with snakes...
October 3, 2017 9:02 p.m.
After thinking of this deck I was inspired to create a Hapatra EDH deck. Appreciations if you take a look and let me know what you think. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/snakes-in-all-your-holes-budget/
October 6, 2017 9:20 p.m.
Ok superhuman21 I will check it out and comment on it when I have time.
October 6, 2017 11:54 p.m.
+1 for the name, but also this is a really cool deck.
October 7, 2017 2:06 a.m.
This is my first (paper) MTG deck and I've enjoyed it a lot so far. I chose it namely due to being a snake lover. Thank you for sharing!
I'd like to start adding more expensive cards to the deck, while simultaneously building towards an "Abzan Tokens" deck. I think a good start would be to pick up "Vraska, Relic Seeker". So my questions are...
What would you swap out for the Vraska?
Do you recommend any other cards that suit the purpose of benefiting this deck while also building towards "Abzan Tokens", such as Fatal Push maybe?
Thanks again! :)
